Effect of sevoflurane-based or propofol-based anaesthesia on the incidence of postoperative acute kidney injury: A retrospective propensity score-matched analysis

CONCLUSION In this retrospective study, no significant difference was found in the incidence of postoperative AKI after lung resection surgery between patients who received propofol-based TIVA and those who received sevoflurane-based inhalational anaesthesia. Considering the methodological limitation of this retrospective study, further studies are required to confirm these results.

Authors: Zhou ZG, Liu R, Tan HL, Ji XY, Yi XL, Song JF Abstract OBJECTIVE: The paper aims to explore the application of dexmedetomidine combined with dezocine in thoracoscopic radical resection of lung cancer and its effect on the awakening quality. PATIENTS AND METHODS: 122 patients undergoing thoracoscopic radical resection of lung cancer in The Affiliated Hospital of Qingdao University from April 2009 to January 2012 were selected as the subjects of the study. Among them, 68 patients were anesthetized with dexmedetomidine combined with dezocine as a study group, 54 patients with midazolam combined with fenta...

CONCLUSIONS: Multimodal interventional bronchoscopic methods seem to be a last option but may be useful in the management of advanced airway obstruction in the setting of SCLC. The choice of modality may be chosen depending upon individual patient characteristics as appropriate.

Rationale: Rigid bronchoscopy under general anesthesia enables performing diagnostic and/or therapeutic procedures in the tracheobronchial tree. As most patients undergoing rigid bronchoscopy have moderate to severe respiratory disease or central airway obstruction, the operators often face the risk of hypoxemia when inserting the rigid bronchoscope into the patients’ airway. Applying high flow nasal cannula (HFNC) oxygen therapy before the insertion of the bronchoscope allows to maintain high fractional inspired oxygen (FiO2) and thus leading to maximizing apnea time before desaturation. Patient concerns and diag...

This study reports the findings from 9 sheep that received sensor implantations. Time taken from initial CT scans to the placement of a single sensor into an OPA tumour was 45 ± 5 min, with all implantations resulting in the successful delivery of sensors into tumours. Immediate post-implantation mild pneumothoraces occurred in 4 sheep, which was successfully managed in all cases. This is, to the best of our knowledge, the first description of the use of naturally-occurring OPA cases as a pre-clinical surgical model. Through the integration of techniques used in the treatment of human lung cancer patients, including...

This case report qualified for local institutional review board waiver of review. Bronchopleural fistula (BPF) is a known but rare complication of thermal ablation of the lungs, and, currently, literature on causative factors and treatment is limited to case reports. A 40-year-old man with metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (mixed neuroendocrine and adenomatous features) had a solitary 3.0-cm right upper lobe lung mass (Fig 1a) that was growing despite chemotherapy and radiation. Microwave ablation was performed under general anesthesia and computed tomography (CT) fluoroscopy guidance using a single 13-gauge antenna (E...
