OJECTIVES: The aim was to evaluate the ability of bilateral superficial cervical plexus blockade to control pain and to reduce the side effects of general anesthesia in patients submitted to thyroidectomy. METHODS: In this randomized controlled trial, we prospectively studied 100 consecutive patients who underwent total thyroidectomy. The simple random patient sample was divided into two groups: 50 patients received general anesthesia alone (group 1 [G1]), and 50 patients received general anesthesia with bilateral superficial cervical plexus blockade (group 2 [G2]). Statistical analyses were performed, and a 5% significanc...

Authors: Hao J, Dong B, Zhang J, Luo Z Abstract OBJECTIVES:   To evaluate whether pre-emptive analgesia is an effective technique to reduce postoperative delirium (PD) in geriatric patients with hip fracture. METHODS: This is a double-blind randomized clinical trial. Ninety elderly patients scheduled for hipfracture surgery at HongHui Hospital, Xi'an Jiaotong University, Xi'an, China  between March 2018 and January 2019 were divided into 2 groups. On arrival at the emergency department, the experimental group (n=44) received ultrasound-guided continuous fascia iliaca compartment block (...

Hello, Any advice would be appreciated. I was considering 2 different specialties starting off in 4th year. I gathered letters for both individually and I planned on getting a generic letter to fill in gaps. When it was all said and done, I ended up with 2 letters for anesthesiology and 1 for IM specifically and the general letter fell through. I already submitted my app with the 3 letters to have a completed app hoping that it would be apparent that I switched to anesthesiology as... Letters from Mult. Specialities

Authors: De Jong A, Verzilli D, Chanques G, Futier E, Jaber S Abstract The obese patient is at an increased risk of perioperative complications. Most importantly, these include difficult access to the airways (intubation, difficult or impossible ventilation), and post-extubation respiratory distress secondary to the development of atelectasis or obstruction of the airways, sometimes associated with the use of morphine derivatives. The association of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSA) with obesity is very common, and induces a high risk of peri- and postoperative complications. Preoperative OSA screening is cruc...

The objective of this study was to evaluate the potential analgesic action of 8% capsaicin cream for topical use in patients with myofascial pain syndrome. METHODS: Initially, cream formulations of PLA (Placebo) and CPS (Capsaicin 8%) were developed and approved according to the current requirements of the health authority agency. The 40 participating patients were randomly assigned to the PLA and CPS groups in a double-blind fashion. Before the creams were topically administered, according to the allocation group, the local anesthetic was used for a period of 50minutes directly in the area of interest. The cream was a...

CONCLUSION: Costoclavicular brachial plexus block is a good alternative for upper limb anesthesia distal to the elbow, being a safe and effective option for patients who are obese or have other limitations to the use of other upper limb blocking techniques.

In Reply We thank our colleagues for their interest in our study. We agree that many respiratory adverse events are common and minor and may have little effect on the patient ’s immediate clinical care. However, bronchospasm and laryngospasm are known to be a major cause of perioperative cardiac arrests, unplanned intensive care unit admissions, and neurological damage following anesthesia. The composite of these respiratory adverse events allows a standardized approac h to clinical trials and minimizes the potential for operator bias across treatment arms. We do acknowledge that different approaches to these composi...
