Authors: Beylacq L, Baer E, Choquet O, Dupre HL, Capdevila X Abstract BACKGROUND: Ultrasound-guided axillary block is widely used in daily practice for upper limb orthopedic surgery. A simple, safe, efficacious and time-saving technique is mandatory to optimize surgical turnover and costs. In this perspective, we compared, in a randomized, single-blinded study, a standardized perifascial technique and the selective perineural technique. METHODS: Forty-two patients scheduled for elective hand surgery were randomly assigned to receive 20 ml of 10 mg/mL mepivacaïne, either selectively around each of the radia...

Catheter use in regional anesthesia: pros &cons. Minerva Anestesiol. 2019 Oct 14;: Authors: Capdevila X, Iohom G, Choquet O, Delaney P, Apan A Abstract Continuous peripheral nerve blocks refer to a local anesthetic solution administered via perineurally placed catheters in an effort to extend the benefits of a single-shot peripheral nerve block. They offer several advantages in the postoperative period including excellent analgesia, reduced opioid consumption and associated side effects, enhanced rehabilitation and improved patient satisfaction. The current trend towards less invasive, one-day surg...
Authors: Romagnoli S, Franchi F, Ricci Z Abstract Individual response to sedatives and hypnotics is characterized by high variability and the identification of a personalized dose during anesthesia in the operating room and during sedation in the intensive care unit may have beneficial effects. Although the brain is the main target of general intravenous and inhaled anesthetic agents, electroencephalography (EEG) is not routinely utilized to explore cerebral response to sedation and anesthesia probably because EEG trace reading is complex and requires encephalographers' skills. Automated processing algorithms (proc...

Anyone who do a lot of these have tips for VATS/thoracotomies, especially with paramedian techniques? Place i trained didn't have a ton of paramedian numbers for thoracic cases. most of the thoracic epidurals i did was for abdominal cases were lower, which were just mostly midline I have done some paramedians with variable success long time ago in residency(n probably too low to tell how good i am), but i will be doing more in my new practice. I did some rereading on paramedians, and it... thoracic epidural tips?
Hello Everyone, I am thinking about trying locums for a little bit. I would like to find out if anyone knows what happens in the following scenario. Lets say I inquire about a permanent position advertised by the hospital/group, but after finding out all the details I decide that I am not interested. Can I apply for the same job as a locum via a locum agency? Is there any conflict? Thank you for the advice.
Conclusions: Female gender, increasing age, American Society of Anesthesiology classification, operative time, or a history of diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, congestive heart failure, or a bleeding disorder are risk factors for prolonged hospitalization following total shoulder arthroplasty. Level of Evidence: Level III.
ConclusionsThe study is designed to identify a TxA dose with maximal efficacy and minimal complications. We hypothesize that the high dose has superior efficacy and non-inferior safety to the low dose.
