This study indicates that delay in the intestinal transit in late phase of surgically induced POI involves an ET-dependent mechanism. PMID: 31527357 [PubMed - in process]
ConclusionsThe use of dexmedetomidine is associated with differentially expressed microRNAs which may be involved in cardioprotection following administration of dexmedetomidine.

Conclusions: Common bile duct clearance by Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangio-Pancreatography requires multiple procedures and complications are frequent leading to prolonged treatment and hospitalization suggesting a limited efficacy. PMID: 31526285 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

We comparatively assess the comparison between NI-VATS vs intubated anesthesia VATS (I-VATS) on early outcomes of mediastinal lesion resection.MethodsPatients who u...
Authors: Jamjoom FZ, Doliveux S, Rousson DD, Friedland B, Hamilton A Abstract Block anesthesia for the maxillary division (V2) of the trigeminal nerve is a suitable approach when an entire quadrant of teeth and/or associated structures are involved. The most effective approach to anesthetize the maxillary branch is intraorally via the greater palatine canal. This case report describes the use of a computer-aided design/computer-assisted manufacturing (CAD/CAM) implant surgical template designed with a guide channel to allow for the administration of maxillary nerve block through the greater palatine canal.

Evidence for the use of neuraxial anesthesia (NA) in the context of open abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair is sparse. The purpose of this study was to determine the 90-day outcomes of combined general and NA versus general anesthesia without neuraxial (GA) for elective open AAA repair.
The objective of this study was to review the outcomes of varicose veins originating from the popliteal fossa at a single center.
We hypothesized that use of neuraxial instead of general anesthesia in patients undergoing lower extremity arterial revascularization surgery (endarterectomy or bypass) may decrease adverse patient outcomes and resource use. The study objective was to identify whether the type of anesthesia provided to these patients was associated with mortality, complications, length of stay (LoS), readmissions, and health system costs at 30 days.
Abstract This Pro-Con debate will provide the practitioner with an evidence-based knowledge approach to assist the clinician in determining whether to employ (Pro) or not to employ (Con) this technique in the obstetrical suite for labor analgesia. Nitrous oxide has been used safely in dentistry and medicine for many centuries. However, accumulating preclinical and clinical evidence increasingly suggests previously unrecognized adverse maternal and fetal effects of nitrous oxide, which warrants reconsideration of its use in pregnant women and a more detailed informed consent. Nitrous oxide is associated with metabo...
