The study aim was to evaluate the gastric antral cross-sectional area using ultrasound.MethodIn this prospective study, 85 scheduled term pregnant women underwent gastric ultrasound. The outcomes were the measurement of the gastric antral cross-secti...

Conclusion: Cerebral tissue oxygenation in neonates during immediate transition after birth was similar after maternal general and spinal anesthesia during CS, despite differences in SpO2, HR, and supplemental oxygen in term neonates and differences in supplemental oxygen in preterm neonates.Neonatology

This study was performed to investigate if TCD can be used to predict the occurrence of PDPH in high-risk patients.MethodsThis prospective observational study was conducted on ninety ASA I and II pregnant females undergoing elective cesarean section (CS) under spinal anesthesia. TCD was performed to all patients within 24  h before the operation, at 24 h and 48 h in the post-operative period to measure mean velocity (MV) and Gosling pulsatility index (PI) in the right middle cerebral artery. For 5 days postoperatively, all patients were assessed and the PDPH patients were identified, their pre- and post...

Assume you have a G5P4 with a previously undiagnosed placenta percreta. She has not had routine prenatal care. She presents urgently to L&D in labor and the OB/GYN calls for a stat C-section. You send a type/screen/cross and proceed to the OR. Intraoperatively, she begins to bleed and sag. You call for blood and the blood bank tells you the patient is A+ but they have detected antibodies on screen. The donor samples they have crossed so far have all been positive and the risk of an...

Abstract Cesarean section (CS) has been consistently associated with susceptibility to autism spectrum disorder (ASD), however, the underlying mechanism for this association remains vague. Here, we studied various pre-peri-and-neonatal factors among 347 children with ASD, 117 children with other developmental delays (DD), and 2226 age, sex and ethnicity matched controls. We found that CS is significantly associated with an increased risk of ASD but not DD (p = 0.019 and p = 0.540 respectively). Furthermore, we show that only CS performed with general anesthesia (GA) elevated the risk of...

Purpose of review Low-dose combined spinal epidural (CSE) anesthesia is a common technique to anesthetize women for cesarean section. It is used to reduce the incidence of hypotension while providing excellent anesthetic conditions. Recent findings Low spinal doses produce effective anesthesia but of limited duration. Therefore, an epidural catheter (and thus CSE) is required to guarantee pain-free surgery. Recent work confirmed that lower spinal doses can reduce significantly hypotension. Summary Low-dose CSE is a valuable strategy to anesthetize pregnant women for cesarean section but requires attention and training.

Purpose of review The aim of this study was to review the current literature on anesthesia for predelivery procedures and to summarize recent findings on anesthesiological methods used. Recent findings Ex-utero intrapartum treatment (EXIT)-procedures are performed to secure the newborn's oxygenation in case of severe airway obstruction due to multiple conditions. A key feature of EXIT is continued intactness of the maternofetal circulation by uterine relaxation achieved by general anesthesia with high doses of anesthetic gases. A dose reduction may be achieved by combining inhaled anesthesia with propofol. After intra...

We report an extremely rare case of PPP and PA complicated with anemia and an unexplained decrease in the hemoglobin (Hb) levels after transfusion of 3 units of allogeneic red blood cells. Diagnoses: The patient was diagnosed with unexplained anemia, and hemolysis resulting from donor red blood cell transfusion was suspected preoperatively. Interventions: To minimize blood loss for safety, a new operative technique, parallel transverse uterine incisions (PTUI) in CS (PTUI CS), was used under general anesthesia in this case. Inhaled volatile sevoflurane was used for uterine relaxation during PTUI. Cell salvage was als...
