Authors: Tamura T, Kaneko K, Yokota S, Kitao T, Ando M, Kubo Y, Nishiwaki K Abstract This randomized, observer-blinded prospective study aimed to compare the postoperative analgesic effects of ultrasound-guided rectus sheath block with those of local anesthetic infiltration of the surgical field in children undergoing inguinal hernia repair. Children aged 2 to 14 years, scheduled for elective single-incision laparoscopic percutaneous extraperitoneal closure, were randomly allocated to receive ultrasound-guided rectus sheath block (group R) or local anesthetic infiltration of the surgical field (group L). In group R...

Authors: Mallan D, Sharan S, Saxena S, Singh TK, Faisal Abstract Transverse abdominis plane (TAP) blocks, over the past decade, have emerged as a reliable tool in multimodal analgesia. Although they block only the somatic component of pain, studies have still revealed a consistent benefit in the first 24-48 hours after surgery in terms of pain scores and overall opioid consumption. The safety and dependability has increased with ultrasound usage. The aim of this review is to help the reader appreciate the applied anatomy required for a TAP block and its congeners, to standardize its nomenclature, and to help choose...

CONCLUSIONS: We showed that 5 mL of injectate far exceeds the capacity of the PPF, leading to drug spread outside of the PPF. Moreover, we found that 1 mL of injectate largely covered the nerve, suggesting a more efficacious and safer block procedure. This finding will need confirmation in future clinical studies.

Authors: Hao J, Dong B, Zhang J, Luo Z Abstract OBJECTIVES:   To evaluate whether pre-emptive analgesia is an effective technique to reduce postoperative delirium (PD) in geriatric patients with hip fracture. METHODS: This is a double-blind randomized clinical trial. Ninety elderly patients scheduled for hipfracture surgery at HongHui Hospital, Xi'an Jiaotong University, Xi'an, China  between March 2018 and January 2019 were divided into 2 groups. On arrival at the emergency department, the experimental group (n=44) received ultrasound-guided continuous fascia iliaca compartment block (...

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To describe our experience with office removal of nonpalpable contraceptive implants at our referral center. METHODS: We performed a retrospective cohort study by reviewing the charts of patients referred to our family planning specialty center for nonpalpable or complex contraceptive implant removal from January 2015 through December 2018. We localized nonpalpable implants using high-frequency ultrasonography and skin mapping in radiology, followed by attempted removal in the office using local anesthesia and a modified vasectomy clamp. We abstracted information on demographics, implant l...

Regional analgesia continues to evolve with the introduction of ultrasound-guided fascial plane blocks. Erector spinae plane block (ESPB) is a novel technique gaining recent acceptability as a perioperative modality of analgesia in various thoracic and abdominal surgeries. However, literature on the use of ESPB in pediatric cardiac surgery is limited.
