ConclusionsSo far examples are given for almost every possible patient position in the third trimester except the right lateral one. All the previously presented positionings (prone, left lateral) were equally effective regarding the outcome with none being better than another. For left-sided lumbar pathologies performed in the third trimester the right lateral position might be an alternative option for easier access. Based on the literature an epidural and general anesthesia can be applied successfully in the third trimester. Spinal anesthesia might be another anesthesia consideration.

In this study, propofol was administered to the pregnant rats in the early pregnancy (E7). The learning and memory function of the offspring were tested by Morris water maze (MWM) test on post-natal day 30. Two hours before each MWM trial, histone deacetylase 2 (HDAC2) inhibitor, suberoylanilide hydroxamic acid (SAHA), Senegenin (SEN, traditional Chinese medicine), hippyragranin (HGN) antisense oligonucleotide (HGNA) or vehicle were given to the offspring. The protein levels of HDAC2, acetylated histone 3 (H3) and 4 (H4), cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) response element-binding protein (CREB), N-methyl-D-aspartate re...

I would like to report a case of prolonged neurological deficit following spinal anaesthesia for caesarean section, highlighting the importance of input from the Neurology Department in its management. A 35-year-old primigravid woman with a twin pregnancy was scheduled for a category three caesarean section under spinal anaesthesia. The preoperative assessment was not significant apart from her being described as ‘anxious’ and her mild cholestasis of pregnancy. Her body mass index was 19.9 kg/m2 and a single-shot spinal anaesthetic was planned.

Authors: Demers C, Derzko C, David M, Douglas J Abstract OBJECTIVE: The prevalence of bleeding disorders, notably von Willebrand disease (vWD), among adult women with objectively documented menorrhagia is consistently reported to be 10% to 20% and is even higher in adolescents presenting with menorrhagia. OPTIONS: Diagnostic tools and specific medical and, where appropriate, surgical alternatives to management are reviewed and evidence-based recommendations presented. EVIDENCE: A MEDLINE search of the English literature between January 1975 and November 2003 was performed using the following key words: meno...

ConclusionsIn pregnant patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension, decreased mortality has been observed over recent years  particularly in patients with well-controlled pulmonary pressure and a positive vasoreactivity test.

The procedure takes place at about 28 weeks into pregnancy, with the mother under local anaesthetic and the baby given a general anaesthetic administered via a tiny needle.

Anaesthesia remains a mysterious and inexact science – and thousands of patients still wake up on the operating table every year. By Kate Cole-AdamsWhen Rachel Benmayor was admitted to hospital, eight and a half months pregnant, in 1990, her blood pressure had been alarmingly high and her doctor had told her to stay in bed and get as much rest as possible before the baby came. But her blood pressure kept rising – this condition, known as pre-eclampsia, is not uncommon but can lead to sometimes-fatal complications – and the doctors decided to induce the birth. When her cervix failed to dilate properly afte...

das P Abstract Intrauterine adverse conditions may be responsible for long-lasting damages which impact health even during adult phase. Hypoxic-ischemic (HI) events are a relevant cause of newborn mortality and the principal factor leading to permanent brain lesions. Using a model in which the ovarian and uterine flux of a pregnant rat is obstructed for 45 minutes we have described oligodendrocyte death, astrogliosis and neuronal loss. In this work we investigated hippocampal neuronal population and performed a functional evaluation of memory and learning of young rats that had been affected by prenatal HI. Anesth...
