The Influence of the Type of Anaesthesia on the Frequency of Postoperative Haemorrhage Requiring Revision After Removal of the Silicone Oil Tamponade.

[The Influence of the Type of Anaesthesia on the Frequency of Postoperative Haemorrhage Requiring Revision After Removal of the Silicone Oil Tamponade]. Klin Monbl Augenheilkd. 2018 May 03;: Authors: Stang MM, Bartz-Schmidt KU Abstract In this retrospective data analysis, it was examined whether the mode of anesthesia influenced postoperative haemorrhage in patients with first time complete silicone oil removal in 2002, 2005, 2010, 2014 - 2016 in our clinic and if there was a change in frequency over time. Haemorrhage was defined as a postoperative haemorrhage within 2 weeks after the operation and which led to revision vitrectomy. In all, there were 939 operations and 9 cases of postoperative surgery requiring revision in the analysed years. Even though the number of patients with intubation anesthesia (355) was smaller than the number with local anesthesia (584), the majority of patients with postoperative haemorrhage had been given intubation anesthesia (6). This difference corresponds to a trend (p = 0.089) towards a lower rate of postoperative haemorrhage with local anesthesia, which could encourage the surgeon to perform silicone oil removal under local anaesthesia. Over the course of time, there was a decline in postoperative haemorrhage. In 2002, 2005 and 2010 there were 7 cases of postoperative haemorrhage, but only 2 in the years 2014 - 2016. Aside from the higher proportion of operations under local anaesthesia, the declin...

Recently, diaphragmatic rapid shallow breathing index (DRSBI) is proposed as a promising tool in weaning outcome prediction. The aim of this study was to evaluate if DRSBI is more accurate than RSBI for weaning outcome prediction.Patients and methodsThis prospective, randomized clinical trial was carried out on 106 mechanically ventilated ...

This article will discuss paediatric airway assessment, outline those features that contribute to airway difficulty, and identify indications and risk factors associated with various airway techniques. Key objectives for an airway management plan are to maintain oxygenation and avoid trauma. This involves adopting techniques that avoid hypoxia and provide a high success rate with minimum attempts.

This article is an update of anaesthesia for common paediatric ear, nose and throat (ENT) procedures. ENT pathology is the most common indication for surgery in children. An increasing number are performed as day cases, even in the presence of comorbidities such as obstructive sleep apnoea, but judicious selection of suitable children remains important. Considerations include severity of disease, known difficult airway, complex comorbidities and the surgical centre. The anaesthetic management of frequently performed paediatric ENT procedures will be discussed, including the potential role for dexmedetomidine and recent adv...

In this study, we assessed neural responses to an air puff stimulation (100 ms) to the nasal cavity in the absence or presence of l-menthol using an optical imaging technique with a voltage-sensitive dye in the primary cortex (S1) of urethane-anesthetized rats. A weak air puff application (15 psi) without l-menthol induced neural excitation in a part of the contralateral S1. The air puff stimulation with l-menthol significantly increased the optical signal intensity, expanded the activated area, and shortened the latency, compared to those in the absence of l-menthol. These results suggest that activation of ...
