Conclusions: Spinal anesthesia with a median or paramedian approach at cesarean section has no effect on the incidence of PDPH, but we believe that there has been a need for further studies with larger or different patient populations.

Conclusions: Pre-injury psychiatric and pre-injury headache/migraine symptoms are risk factors for worse functional and post-concussive outcomes at 3- and 6-months post-mTBI. mTBI patients presenting to acute care should be evaluated for psychiatric and headache/migraine history, with lower thresholds for providing TBI education/resources, surveillance, and follow-up/referrals. Clinical Trial Registration: www.ClinicalTrials.gov, identifier NCT01565551. Introduction Traumatic brain injury (TBI) remains a significant cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. In 2013 ~2.8 million TBI cases were recorded annually i...

“Can tubal reversal surgery be done with an epidural?” Epidural needle being inserted at start of surgery Women ask this question because they are fearful of being ‘put to sleep’ with general anesthesia. Many women are familiar with epidurals because of child birth, c-sections, and tubal ligation. Epidural anesthesia can cause more complications than general anesthesia. Epidural anesthesia may not the best choice for outpatient surgery. Although tubal reversal can be done with epidural anesthesia, our experience has demonstrated tubal reversal under general anesthesia is safer and has less side effe...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Epidural analgesia is a central nerve block technique achieved by injection of a local anaesthetic close to the nerves that transmit pain, and is widely used as a form of pain relief in labour. However, there are concerns about unintended adverse effects on the mother and infant. This is an update of an existing Cochrane Review (Epidural versus non-epidural or no analgesia in labour), last published in 2011. OBJECTIVES: To assess the effectiveness and safety of all types of epidural analgesia, including combined-spinal-epidural (CSE) on the mother and the baby, when compared with non-epid...

View Original Article Here: How Long Does Shingles Last In The Elderly? Shingles is a viral infection that follows a varicella-zoster infection, although it can take decades for symptoms of the secondary disease to emerge. The condition presents as a painful and blistering rash, but it is not life-threatening. According to the Center for Disease Control, there are nearly one million cases in the United States each year, and almost half of those cases are in older adults over age 60. Some people only see one instance of the illness, while others have recurring symptoms, but 30 percent of Americans will develop shingles at s...

(A A Case Rep. 2016;6:160–162) In this case report, a 32-year-old primigravida woman with a history of idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) presented to the labor and delivery suite at 40 weeks gestation in active labor and with pseudotumor cerebri syndrome (PTCS). PTCS, which includes IIH, is a rare disorder mainly of obese women of childbearing age, characterized by increased intracranial pressure in the absence of a space-occupying lesion, ventriculomegaly, or abnormal cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) composition. Symptoms include headache, pulsatile tinnitus, back pain, dizziness, photophobia, neck pain, cognitiv...

CONCLUSION: We conclude that administration of low doses of ketamine after spinal anesthesia reduces the need for analgesics and has fewer side effects than using opioids. Further studies are required to determine the proper dose of ketamine which offers maximum analgesic effect. Furthermore, administration of low-dose ketamine in combination with other medications in order to minimize its side effects warrants further investigation. PMID: 25829995 [PubMed]
