ConclusionLPS and XLGB co-treatment in rats led to marked hepatotoxicity. This toxicity was associated with disrupted lipid metabolism, extensive liver necrosis and inflammatory infiltration, apoptosis, and expression of oxidative stress-related proteins. These results demonstrate a valuable model for the study of iDILI in the context of XLGB treatment, and further provide insights into the potential mechanisms by which XLGB may induce hepatotoxicity in humans.Graphical abstract

O’Donnell, Frank LoughnaneAbstractUltrasound technology has transformed the practice of regional anaesthesia. Anaesthesiologists routinely use real-time images to guide needle and local anaesthetic placement adjacent to nerves. It is widely accepted that the era of ultrasonography has improved peripheral nerve block success rates and lessened the dose of local anaesthetic required to achieve success. Contemporary reports of harm in relation to nerve injury or local anaesthetic systemic toxic...

While our traditional method of analgesia for these patients has involved multimodal medications and a continuous lumbar plexus block, we report two cases of patients who received continuous lumbar erector spinae plane blocks. Both patients exhibited excellent pain control postoperatively and were able to di...
