Authors: Quek SYP, Gomes-Zagury J, Subramanian G Abstract The twin block, introduced in 2014, has proven to be more advantageous for the management of myogenous orofacial pain than the masseteric nerve block, which was introduced in 2009. The twin block is an extraoral nerve block injection which passes through the temporal fossa to anesthetize both the masseteric and the deep temporal nerves as they exit the infratemporal fossa at the infratemporal crest. Similar to the masseteric nerve block, the twin block has demonstrated efficacy with expeditious and sustained relief of myogenous face pain originating from the...
Authors: Tsutsui Y, Sunada K Abstract Articaine is a low-toxicity local anesthetic that is widely used in dentistry. Typically, epinephrine is added to prolong the duration of articaine local anesthesia; however, epinephrine exhibits adverse effects. Low-dose dexmedetomidine (DEX), an α2-adrenoreceptor agonist, reportedly prolongs local anesthesia without notable adverse cardiovascular effects. The purpose of this study was to assess whether a combination of low-dose DEX and articaine would provide a low-toxicity local anesthetic option for dental procedures without adverse cardiovascular effects. Thus, this ...
CONCLUSIONS: The current evidence, though limited, supports the use of bilateral PNBs in colorectal surgical procedures in particular hemorrhoidectomies. PNBs can be safe and effective in improving patient outcomes particularly when using bupivacaine or lidocaine with either the anatomical landmark or neurostimulation technique.

ConclusionTapentadol is effective and well tolerated in opioid-na ïve and opioid-tolerant patients with cancer pain of varying pathophysiology, including those with nociceptive and/or neuropathic components. Tapentadol may be considered for first-line use in moderate-to-severe cancer-related pain.
Transvaginal ultrasound-guided oocyte retrieval for assisted reproduction was first described in 1985 (1). The pain associated with oocyte retrieval has been attributed to the aspiration needle puncturing the vaginal tissue as well as the ovarian capsule, along with manipulation of the needle during the procedure. Overall, with the oocyte retrieval being a short, outpatient procedure, various types of anesthesia have been used. These include general anesthesia, conscious sedation, and use of paracervical blocking agents.
ConclusionQLB significantly reduces opioid requirements in CD and may have analgesic effects lasting 24 h.
