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]

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...

Authors: Giannasio B, Giacomelli E, Dorigo W, Fargion AT, Chiti E, Pratesi C Abstract AIM OF THE STUDY: To evaluate the effects of spinal or locoregional anaesthesia versus local tumescent anesthesia during traditional surgical treatment of saphenous reflux, in terms of pain and postoperative functional recovery. MATERIALS AND METHODS: From January to December 2014, 195 consecutive interventions of stripping of the greater saphenous vein for valvular incompetence were performed. In 114 cases spinal or locoregional anaesthesia was performed (group 1), in the remaining 81 cases local anaesthesia with the tumescen...

CONCLUSIONS: This study show that in the immediate postoperative period after TKR, the patients receiving oral prolonged-release OXN experienced the same to better pain control than those receiving morphine IVPCA, with a similar degree of PONV. PMID: 29338151 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractPurpose of ReviewLaparoscopic kidney surgery is commonly used for living donor, partial, and total tumor nephrectomy. The successful emergence of laparoscopic technique was justified by the many benefits offered such as reduced blood loss, tissue trauma, pain, and hospital stay. However, this comes at the expense of physiologic changes and complications secondary to pneumoperitoneum, surgical technique, and patient positioning with significant challenges in anesthetic management.Recent FindingsA variety of laparoscopic approaches (transperitoneal, retroperitoneal, hand-assisted, robotic) are used with some having a...

AbstractThe recent development of ultrasound-guide nerve block has led to innovation in anesthesia and pain clinics. However, it has also led to some complex issues, including (1) how to name a new technique, (2) the appropriateness of an intramuscular approach, and (3) how to publicize a new technique. This review addresses naming strategy, feasibility of intramuscular approach block, and methods of publication. First, researchers and authors should pay attention to appropriate nomenclature for the term ‘approach’, ‘compartment block’, and ‘nerve block’ for a new block. Second, it is la...
