In August, (one month ago today)I had an appendectomy. There was very little drama involved, the doctors office visit led straight to a same day CT scan and an emergency review with the radiologist who informed me the appendix couldn't be seen but the colon was most definitely inflamed and I should go to the ER if it got worse. To the ER I went that night, to a hospital where the D Care is very good (had that going for it). They admitted me under observation, coursing enough pain medications through me to make me sick for the next 14 hours. The plan was to do another CT the next day. In observation, as I was trying not to ...

We report successful management of an elective cesarean delivery in a 16-year-old patient with LDS type IV using epidural anesthesia. Perioperative considerations and multidisciplinary management specific to taking care of parturients with LDS are discussed.

Opinion statementThrombotic complications in pregnancy represent a major cause of morbidity and mortality. Pregnancy is a primary hypercoagulable state due to enhanced production of clotting factors, a decrease in protein S activity, and inhibition of fibrinolysis. These physiologic changes will yield a collective rate of venous thromboembolism (VTE) of about 1 –2 in 1000 pregnancies for the general obstetric population, which represents a five- to tenfold increased risk in pregnancy compared to age-matched non-pregnant peers. A select group of women, however, will carry a significantly higher rate of thrombosis due ...

Regulators of G protein signaling (RGS) proteins are crucial in mediating vascular smooth muscle contraction via the regulation of heterotrimeric G proteins, affecting blood pressure and arterial blood flow. Previous studies by others and us showed that RGS2 deficiency augments vascular tone and impairs uterine blood flow (UBF) in non-pregnant mice, and that an Rgs2 loss-of-function mutation is linked to preeclampsia in humans; however, the mechanisms are unclear. Here, we tested the hypothesis that increased RGS2 expression and/or function facilitates placental perfusion by promoting vasodilation and UBF. We determined ge...

Conclusions: Maternal exposure to indoor environmental NO2 causes allergic asthma-related consequences in offspring absent any subsequent lung provocation and potentiates the symptoms of allergic asthma in adult offspring following postnatal allergic sensitization and challenge; this response is associated with the Th2-based immune response and DNA methylation of the IL4 gene. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP685 Received: 19 June 2016 Revised: 07 June 2017 Accepted: 19 June 2017 Published: 13 September 2017 Address correspondence to N.

Ajay Kumar, Praveen Kumar NeemaIndian Journal of Anaesthesia 2017 61(9):753-759Perioperative management of severe pulmonary hypertension (PH) is challenging. Anaesthesiologists come across perioperative management of such cases during incidental surgeries, surgery for various congenital heart diseases and valvular heart diseases and for caesarean section or painless labour in pregnant patient with Eisenmenger syndrome. Knowledge of pathophysiology of PH and novel drugs acting through different mechanisms is paramount in managing such patients. This review will help understanding pathophysiology of PH, anaesthetising patien...

Aplastic anemia (AA) is a life-threatening, albeit rare disease, with serious implications for pregnancy.1 It is defined by the presence of pancytopenia with hypocellular bone marrow in the absence of an abnormal infiltrate or bone marrow fibrosis.2 There are limited available data about its natural history in pregnancy and there are no reported cases of recurrence with successful management in consecutive pregnancies. Here we present the first reported case of aplastic anemia in a patient who despite deterioration of her medical condition, successfully carried two consecutive pregnancies with favorable obstetric and neona...

This study aimed to investigate the influence of UGT1A9 gene polymorphisms on the efficacy of propofol in patients undergoing the painless induced abortion method. A total of 156 women seeking voluntary pregnancy termination procedures were selected for the study, and subsequently underwent painless induced abortions, following anesthesia by means of propofol administration. Polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) was performed to detect the polymorphisms of UGT1A9 gene at -440C/T, -1818C/T and -1887T/G loci. The time, effect-site concentration, and bispectral index (BIS) for the Obser...

PULMONARY HYPERTENSION (PH) is a condition characterized by a mean pulmonary arterial pressure ≥25 mmHg. PH is defined “pre-capillary” when the pulmonary capillary pressure is3 Wood units. The 2015 European Society of Cardiology/European Respiratory Society (ESC/ERS) guidelines classify PH into 5 groups on the basis of clinical, pathophysiologic, and anatomic criteria.
