Lidocaine-Epinephrine-Tetracaine Gel Is More Efficient than Eutectic Mixture of Local Anesthetics and Mepivacaine Injection for Pain Control during Skin Repair in Children: A Prospective, Propensity Score Matched Two-Center Study

Conclusion In conclusion, it appears that LET is superior to conventional anesthesia including mepivacaine infiltration in the pediatric emergency departments. Pretreatment with LET is significantly less painful but equally effective. Hence, we recommend LET as a topical anesthetic in the pediatric emergency department.

CONCLUSIONS: A minimally invasive total endovascular approach allows, through local anesthesia and percutaneous access, to avoid surgical cut down and orotracheal intubation. This, combined with a defined management protocol for infected patients, seems to be a reasonable way to perform endovascular aortic procedures in urgent setting, even in a SARSCoV- 2 positive patient.

ConclusionsLocal anesthesia for patients undergoing VH and PFR has been shown to be a viable alternative to regional anesthesia, offering reduced postoperative pain and less opioid use for the first 8  h.

Proximal humeral fractures are commonly encountered in the emergency department (ED). These injuries are often associated with significant pain, with patients often receiving multiple doses of opiate medications while awaiting definitive management. The interscalene nerve block has been efficacious as perioperative analgesia for patients undergoing operative shoulder repair. The utilization of the interscalene nerve block in the ED for proximal humeral fractures is largely unexplored.

Imagine you’re walking along and suddenly experience excruciating knee pain. Though it initially seems stuck in one position, after a minute or two you can limp along home, but just barely. At your doctor’s visit, an x-ray is normal but symptoms continue for weeks. An MRI is performed and now you have an explanation: a torn meniscus. (Two menisci — rubbery cartilage pads that act as shock absorbers — separate the bottom of your knee bone from the top of your shin bone.) A month later, you’re no better despite rest, pain medicines, and physical therapy. It’s time for surgery to fix it, ri...

Eur J Pediatr Surg DOI: 10.1055/s-0040-1702222The surgical management of patients with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is challenging and ever changing. It requires the highest expertise not only on the surgical level but also of neonatologists and anesthesiologists. In selected patients traditional open surgery is increasingly replaced by thoracoscopic CDH repair in many centers worldwide. Despite obvious and well-described advantages of the minimally invasive approach like a shorter ventilatory time, less pain, a shorter hospital length of stay, and a better cosmesis, important controversies remain. This review dis...

Authors: Kim JH, Choi PW, Um E, Jung SM, Shin YC, Jung SW, Kim JI, Heo TG, Lee MS, Jun H Abstract Purpose: Since insertion of foreign body (FB) into the anus is considered as taboo practice, the patients may impose therapeutic dilemma on attending surgeon. Herein, we performed present study to evaluate the clinical characteristics of patient with retained rectal FB in Koreans, and to suggest management guideline for such cases. Methods: We retrospectively investigated 14 patients between January 2006 and December 2018. We assessed demographic features, mechanism of FB insertion, clinical course between diagnosi...

ConclusionWith this local –regional nerve-blocking protocol, opioid use after ARCR was unexpectedly low, and a large proportion of patients recovered without any post-surgical opioids. The correlation seen between opioid use and age may not be clinically significant, given the low use of post-operative opioids overall. The se results may be useful in guiding post-operative opioid prescribing after ARCR, as well as in lowering costs associated with ARCR.

Conclusion: In most cases, chronic injuries are far more common than acute tears. Because of the nonspecific and slowly progressive symptoms, patients are often misdiagnosed with radiculopathy, osteoarthritis, or trochanteric bursitis. Patients typically present to the clinic with an insidious onset of dull pain over the lateral hip. This pain is often worse when lying on the affected side. Certain gluteal-focused movements, such as climbing stairs, may exacerbate the pain. To our knowledge, our report is only the third case of acute traumatic tear of the gluteus medius and gluteus minimus reported in the literature. P...

AbstractThe trigeminal nerve constitutes the largest sensory cortex representation in the brain compared with other sensory nerves. This is likely due to the fact that the trigeminal nerve underpins our very existence, as it sensorially protects, our five senses including the organs that provide sight, smell, taste, hearing, speech and meninges protecting our brain.Thus, when trigeminal nerve injuries occur, which in the main are preventable and painful, the majority of patients experience mixed symptoms including altered sensation, numbness, and ongoing or elicited neuropathic pain. These neuropathic features cause signif...
