Comparison of Postoperative Results after Hemorrhoidectomy Using Local and Spinal Anesthesia.

Comparison of Postoperative Results after Hemorrhoidectomy Using Local and Spinal Anesthesia. J Med Assoc Thai. 2017 02;100 Suppl 1:S33-9 Authors: Sirikurnpiboon S, Siripattanakul A Abstract Background: Hemorrhoidectomy is a common procedure in clinical practice. Most operations are performed on an inpatient basis using general or regional anesthesia, and the use of local anesthesia is still limited due to concerns about postoperative care. Objective: To compare perioperative results including pain, urinary retention, bleeding and other complications after hemorrhoidectomy performed using local anesthesia (LA) on an out-patient basis with those achieved after spinal anesthesia (SA) on in-patient cases. Material and Method: This was a retrospective study of closed hemorrhoidectomy of grade 3 hemorrhoids performed under local and spinal anesthesia between March 2011 and March 2014 in the Department of Surgery, Rajavithi Hospital, Bangkok. Results: A total of 91 patients with third-degree internal hemorrhoids were recruited. The subjects were divided into two groups with 50 patients in the LA group and 41 in the SA one. Early complications were similar in the two groups: patients in the LA group had more postoperative pain with visual analog (VAS) scores at 6 hours postoperatively of 8.8±1.26 compared with 5.3±1.09 (p

This study aims to assess whether ultrasound-guided injection of platelet-rich plasma can safely and effectively treat symptoms associated with acetabular hip labral tears. Design Institutional review board approval was gained for a prospective study of eight patients (N = 8), who have previously failed conservative management, to receive ultrasound-guided injection of platelet-rich plasma at the site of hip labrum tear. We assessed pain reduction and functional ability at baseline and then 2, 6, and 8 wks after injection, using the visual analog scale and Harris Hip Score, respectively. Results Statistically signifi...

Introduction Ozone has been recently used as a safe alternative treatment in musculoskeletal disorders with fewer adverse effects than corticosteroids. The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy of a single injection of ozone with that of a corticosteroid in the treatment of shoulder impingement. Design Thirty patients with shoulder pain and clinical signs and symptoms of impingement were randomly assigned into two groups: ultrasound-guided injection with ozone or corticosteroid. Patients’ symptoms were evaluated by visual analog scale, constant score, shoulder pain and disability scale, shoulder range of...

The aim of this project was to evaluate the 10-yr outcomes from the Rehabilitation Research Experience for Medical Students. A target benchmark was one high-quality output per student. Students were required to devise a research project and work full time with a mentor at an approved sponsor site for 8 wks. Longitudinal surveys were used to collect data about research outputs, match results, and decisions about whether to pursue academic careers. From 2008 to 2017, 73 (48%) of 153 applicants were awarded summer externships. Residency match results included the following: physical medicine and rehabilitation (45%), internal...

Bone stress injury is a common overuse injury in athletes. Risk factors for bone stress injury in athletes include the female athlete triad (triad); this has not been evaluated in para athletes. The aim of this study was to identify risk factors, prevalence, and anatomical distribution of bone stress injury in para athletes. A cross-sectional online survey on health characteristics and previous fractures including bone stress injury was completed by para athletes training for the 2016 or 2018 Paralympic Games. Two hundred sixty para athletes completed the survey (659 invited, response rate = 40%). Half reported previous fr...

We describe a case of posttraumatic chronic intercostal neuralgia, in which successful pain relief was achieved via repeated injections of local anesthetic and steroid combinations in the serratus anterior plane under ultrasonographic guidance. This novel technique is easy to administer, reliable, and warrants further investigation with regard to its use for rehabilitation of patients who are experiencing posttraumatic chronic neuropathies of the chest wall.
