ConclusionOur data support the presence of persistent pain in pediatric patients after common surgeries. Most patients who developed persistent pain at 6 months had pain at 1 month. We recommend questioning at follow‐up visit about persistent pain and functional impairment with follow‐up until resolution.

CONCLUSIONS The TKA implant without suction drains combined with intensified perioperative analgesia and intensive postoperative rehabilitation is a safe way to earlier recovery of the function of the operated knee, or, by extension, the lower limb. The described approach is not associated with a higher risk of perioperative complications (bleeding, healing disorders or early infections). Patients also benefit from lower blood losses. Based on the results of our study, we recommend performing the TKA surgeries routinely without drains, with perioperative analgesia and immediate postoperative joint mobilization. Key words: ...

This study intended to answer the following hypothesis: Is the administration of dipyrone preemptively capable of decreasing trans- and postoperative pain in the third molar surgical extraction?MethodsA pilot prospective double-blind placebo-controlled study was carried out with 25 patients submitted to the third molar surgical extraction at two moments, one side in each intervention. Dipyrone (1  g) was preemptively administered (study group) for the extraction of two third molars on the same side and, in a second surgical procedure, dipyrone (1 g) was administered in the immediate postoperative period (control ...

CONCLUSION: Performing POEM for DES is challenging due to reactive hyperactive spastic contractions during the procedure causing technical difficulties and an extended procedure. A long myotomy, several centimeters above the proximal border of the spastic region, is essential to prevent remnants of spasticity. PMID: 29338493 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

To demonstrate the bioequivalence of alfaxalone in cyclodextrin (Reference Product) to a formulation of alfaxalone in cyclodextrin also containing the preservatives ethanol, chlorocresol, and benzethonium chloride (Test Product) when administered for the purpose of inducing anesthesia in the cat. Blinded, single‐dose, randomized, two‐period, two‐sequence, cross‐over bioequivalence study with a 7‐day washout period between treatments. Twenty‐four (12 neutered males and 12 intact females), healthy, adult cats weighing 4.1±0.9 kg. Cats were administered 5 mg/kg IV of alfaxalone in the Reference or...

ConclusionsPain‐related small fiber functions and symptomatology (two‐in one method) can be assessed via histamine‐ or capsaicin‐ evoked axon flare responses in as little as 15 minutes. The reduction of small fiber functions are characterized by decrease in flare size/intensity at 5 minutes after stimulation and prolongation/abolishment of the latency to reach 3‐fold higher levels of baseline skin microcirculation. LASCA may be applied in clinic to aid early diagnosis, monitor disease progression, and objectively assess treatment efficacy in patients with neuropathic pain.This article is protected by copyright.

Epidural analgesia (EA) is the gold standard for pain relief during labor and delivery. Multiple randomized controlled trials show lower maternal pain scores and higher maternal satisfaction with epidural analgesia during labor compared to other analgesic techniques, such as systemic opioids and nitrous oxide.1 –4 In spite of its efficacy and increased use there has been significant controversy regarding the impact of EA on labor outcomes. Although evidence suggests that EA does not increase the overall rate of cesarean delivery,5 its impact on other outcomes, such as need for assisted vaginal delivery, has been stud...
