Introduction: Preoperative anaemia is associated with an increased risk of peri- and postoperative morbidity and mortality. Additionally, preoperative anaemia increases Red Blood Cell (RBC) transfusions associated with postoperative complications and an increase in the risk of perioperative myocardial damage. Perioperative myocardial damage is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Preoperative screening of vascular patients for anaemia and structural heart disease facilitates optimisation of haemoglobin prior to surgery and enables, patient-tailored anaesthesia.

Authors: El Garhy M, Owais T, Abdulrahman M, Schreiber T, Schulze C, Lauer B, Kuntze T Abstract Objective. We investigated the influence of functional impairment assessed by the Barthel index (BI) on the three-month outcomes after transfemoral-transcatheter aortic valve intervention (TF-TAVI) under general anesthesia. Design. We included retrospectively analyzed 336 patients undergoing TAVI between January 2017 and January 2018 in central hospital, Bad Berka, Germany. All patients were followed up at three-month in our center's outpatient clinic. We stratified the patients according to the BI. Results. At baseline,...

AbstractPurposeThe present case –control study was conducted to evaluate whether acute normovolemic hemodilution (ANH) can reduce the need for perioperative allogeneic blood transfusion (ABT) and affect the incidence of perioperative complications in free-flap reconstruction of the head and neck.MethodsThis single-center, retrospective, observational study included the perioperative data of 123 patients who underwent free-flap reconstruction of the head and neck following oncological surgery. Patients were divided into the following two groups according to whether they received ANH: ANH group and non-ANH group. We in...

Abstract Cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in developed countries. Children and adolescents with cancer need surgical interventions (ie, biopsy or major surgery) to diagnose, treat, or palliate their malignancies. Surgery is a period of high vulnerability because it stimulates the release of inflammatory mediators, catecholamines, and angiogenesis activators, which coincides with a period of immunosuppression. Thus, during and after surgery, dormant tumors or micrometastasis (ie, minimal residual disease) can grow and become clinically relevant metastasis. Anesthetics (ie, volatile agents, dexmedetom...

ConclusionPBM in obstetrics is based on three main pillars: diagnostic and/or therapeutic interventions during pregnancy, during delivery and in the postpartum phase. These three main pillars should be kept in mind by all professionals taking care of pregnant women, including obstetricians, general practitioners, midwifes, and anaesthesiologists, to improve pregnancy outcome and optimize resources.

Conclusion: Vitamin C has significantly improved the patients ’ ventricular function (EF) 72 h after surgery and reduced the length of ICU stay. No significant changes in cardiac biomarkers, including CK-MB, troponin I, and LDH, were seen over time in each group. IRCT code: IRCT2016053019470N33

This study sought to assess surgical outcomes of hysterectomy performed for transgender individuals compared with hysterectomy for individuals with menstrual disorders. METHODS: This retrospective cohort study was conducted using the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database. Data of transgender individuals who underwent hysterectomy and individuals who underwent hysterectomy for menstrual disorders were extracted from the participant use data file (2015-2016). Transgender individuals were compared with individuals with menstrual disorders for surgical outcomes within 30 days o...
