The efficacy and safety of continuous versus single-injection popliteal sciatic nerve block in outpatient foot and ankle surgery: a systematic review and meta-analysis

Continuous popliteal sciatic nerve block (CPSNB) has been performed in outpatient foot and ankle surgery as a regional anesthesia method to relieve postoperative pain. Its efficacy as well as safety is yet to ...

Publication date: Available online 18 November 2019Source: Journal of Photochemistry and Photobiology B: BiologyAuthor(s): Hongwei Liu, Junfeng Liu, Xianfeng Xie, Xuebin LiAbstractThough anesthetic drug delivery system and drug vehicles is generally applied for pain relief, there are have many difficulties and issues due to its short duration carrier and low biocompatibility, effectiveness at the conditions of inflammation at acidic pH. To resolve this issue, we have designed and developed the dual (pH and temperature) responsive bio-nanomaterial to improve the efficiency anesthetic drug delivery system. Chitosan is a uniq...

CONCLUSION: We failed to identify the correlation between ANI/NRS values before and after extubation. Our findings suggest that ANI provides more valuable information in anesthetized patients, but is ineffective in the prediction of potential postoperative pain.

Authors: Aksu C, Kuş A, Yörükoğlu HU, Tor Kılıç C, Gürkan Y Abstract OBJECTIVES: Due to the complex breast innervation, postoperative analgesia after breast surgery is a challenge for the anesthesiologists. The erector spinae plane block (ESPB) is a newly defined promising technique for this purpose. The main purpose of this study was to evaluate the analgesic efficacy of the ultrasound-guided ESPB in breast surgery, monitoring its effect on the postoperative opioid consumption. METHODS: Fifty female patients, who were scheduled to undergo elective breast surgery, with the American Soc...

CONCLUSION: The use of levobupivacaine intraperitoneally is an alternative method to reducing of postoperative shoulder and abdominal pain in gynecological laparoscopic surgery. Also, we observed a lower total analgesic consumption and more analgesic effectiveness in intraperitoneal groups than the other. Further studies are needed with different intraperitoneal local anesthetics. PMID: 31736022 [PubMed - in process]

We present our experience with the use of an unilateral QLB to provide postoperative analgesia in a 3-year-old pediatric patient weighing 14 kg who underwent a unilateral inguinal hernia repair. His family was satisfied with the general status and pain cessation in the patient. PMID: 31736020 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Gürkan Y, Yörükoğlu HU, Ulugöl H, Kuş A Abstract The quadratus lumborum block (QLB) is a unilateral facial plane block, which extends from T4 to L1 at the paravertebral space. Injecting local anesthetic between the facial plane of the quadratus lumborum muscle and the psoas major muscle provides the block of the referred dermatomes. However, the number of published studies for QLB used in various surgical procedures is limited. In this case report, we share the results of a 46-years-old ASA I female patient, who underwent open surgery for cholecystectomy and right-sided nephrectomy in...

Abstract Used as a ventilator for assisting victims of polio, the barospirator was described by Swedish physician-scientist Torsten Thunberg in 1924. An immediate predecessor of the iron lung of Philip Drinker, the barospirator fully encased the entire body. Cyclic air-pressure changes within the chamber achieved ventilation during equilibrations of intrapulmonary and ambient pressures. Pulmonary medicine innovator Alvan Leroy Barach used a modified barospirator for lung rest as a treatment of tuberculosis in the 1940s. Adverse effects included damage to patients' tympanic membranes. Despite its limited clinical s...
