Can simple perioperative measures improve quality of recovery following ambulatory laparoscopic surgery in females? An open prospective randomised cohort study, comparing nutritional preoperative drink and chewing gum during recovery to standard care

ConclusionSimply providing 200 ml nutritional preoperative drink and chewing gum during recovery was found effective, improving patients assessed quality of recovery.

Despite many advances in health care, managing pain in the post-anesthetic period continues to be a challenge. With more procedures being performed on an outpatient basis, shorter lengths of stay and drive to improve patient satisfaction, providers are looking for ways to enhance the surgical care experience and reduce opioid use. In addition, the increase burden of obesity in society has contributed to a rise in co-morbidities such as diabetes, cardiovascular, and gallbladder disease making laparoscopic cholecystectomies the second most frequently performed general surgery procedure in the United States.

Conclusion: This exploratory study found an enhanced inflammatory response to cholecystectomy in patients with SCA compared with patients with HbAA. Minimally invasive surgical strategies for this patient group may help to mediate this response. PMID: 31285651 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSION: In patients undergoing ambulatory laparoscopic surgery using a perioperative multimodal analgesic regimen, pain was the limiting factor for discharge in 1% of patients operated in an ambulatory set-up. FUNDING: none. TRIAL REGISTRATION: Danish Data Protection Agency: 2012-58-0004, Danish Health Authority: 3-3013-1435/1, NCT02782832. PMID: 31256774 [PubMed - in process]

We describe the case of a 12-year-old morbidly obese boy, without previous medical issues, scheduled for elective laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Immediately after pneumoperitoneum was established, mechanical ventilation could not be performed. Intraoperative exploration with flexible bronchoscopy showed that the tip of the endotracheal tube was nearly occluded by the posterior tracheal wall bulging anteriorly. Anesthesiologists should be aware of undiagnosed tracheomalacia as a cause of sudden airway collapse, even after the airway is secured with an endotracheal tube.

Conclusion: Single-dose PO APAP is non-inferior to IV APAP for postoperative analgesia in ASC laparoscopic cholecystectomy patients. The value of single-dose IV APAP in this population should be further explored. PMID: 31160871 [PubMed]

This study investigated whether intraocular pressure changes differed according to the body mass index of patients undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Methods: Thirty obese and 30 non-obese patients (body mass index cutoff point, 30 kg/m2) undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy were enrolled. Intraocular pressure was measured at baseline (T1), after induction of anesthesia (T2), 5 min after initiation of mechanical ventilation (T3), 5 min after pneumoperitoneum inflation (T4), 5 min after the patient was placed in the head-up position (T5), 5 min after deflation with the patient in the supine position (T6), and 5 min...
