A Follow ‐up Survey of Total Intravenous Anesthesia Usage in Children in the U.K. and Ireland
ConclusionThis survey has shown that although total intravenous anesthesia is not the default anesthetic technique for most anesthetists, overall usage in children has more than doubled in the past 10 years, with many happy to use it in a wide variety of patients and procedures.This article is protected by copyright.

Authors: Ogawa Y, Ogawa Y Abstract Malignant skin tumors and precancerous lesions have a predilection to be located in the nasal dorsum or sidewall. Although invasive reconstructions have been presented, no simple and suitable method has yet been reported for this area. The flap presented herein, named the lateral nasal advancement flap, is designed on the adjacent lateral region of the sidewall or nasal dorsum and advanced in the medial direction. Two Burow's triangles are removed in the upper and lower portions of the flap: the upper triangle along the nasofacial sulcus and the lower triangle along the nasofacial...
DiscussionAn in situ repair by a combination of the nice knot with an anchor or a transosseous nice knot configuration can theoretically be used as a repair technique for an acromioclavicular dislocation. In comparison with existing techniques, this model shows favorable results for translation.Level of evidenceIII, controlled laboratory study.
Intrathecal autologous bone marrow (ABM) total nucleated cells transplantation (TNCT) has been reported to be a promising treatment for cerebral palsy (CP) and autistic disorders (AD). Children with CP and AD, are expected to be patients with difficult approach when doing venipuncture or taking them to the operating room. Considering pain and the nature of the procedures, bone marrow collection (BMC) and intrathecal procedures (ITP) must be performed under sedation. For short procedures, sevoflurane can be administrated using a face mask and, propofol, a typical intravenous agent is used for the induction of general anesth...
To evaluate factors of sex, age, and body mass index (BMI) on the bone marrow (BM) harvest collection outcomes of total nucleated cell (TNC) yield, anesthesia time, and sterility; a retrospective review of BM harvest donors at our institution from 2008 to 2017 was conducted. Donors were compared by sex and quartiles based on age and BMI.
