Conclusions: In vivo exposure to remifentanil exerts a beneficial effect against excitotoxicity on the developing mouse brain, which is associated with a reduction in the size of ibotenate-induced brain lesion as well as prevention of some behavioral deficits in young mice. The long-term effect of neonatal exposure to remifentanil should be investigated. Introduction The potential neurotoxicity of anesthetics in the perinatal period prompted the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to release a drug safety communication warning in 2016 that stated, “repeated or lengthy use of general anesthetics or sedation ...

AbstractBackgroundAlthough delayed umbilical cord clamping has been shown to have significant benefits for both term and preterm infants, currently, data on its impact on blood gas analysis have been scant and conflicting.MethodsIn a retrospective review, we compared the demographic characteristics and blood gas parameters of 114 delayed cord clamping (DCC —births between 45 and 90 s in length; 109 being for 60 s) versus 407 early cord clamping births (ECC—immediately after delivery) collected over a 1-year period. Intrapartum care and timing of cord clamping for individual cases were performed at the...

(Acta Anaesthesiol Scand. 2018;62:293–303) S100β is a sensitive and reliable biomarker that can be used to detect brain damage and hypoxia and ischemia in the fetuses of pregnant patients. In fact, previous studies have demonstrated S100β as a sensitive marker for fetal brain apoptosis, particularly when the fetal brain is exposed to a high concentration of general anesthetic (GA). Although S100β has been well studied in animal models, its effectiveness in human subjects is yet to be confirmed. In the present study, the authors compared the ratio of S100β from umbilical artery to umbilical vein (...

(Acta Obstet Gynecol Scand. 2016;95(10):1153–1161) While previous studies have reported increased risks of adverse events in pregnancies following kidney transplantation, the authors of this study noted design flaws and a need for validation. These adverse events, including cesarean section, gestational diabetes, preterm delivery and preeclampsia, are of particular concern because they may be associated with an increased risk of acute kidney injury. Previous work on this subject mostly consists of case reports with small sample sizes or single-center studies, and the few studies conducted using national registries h...

Kiranpreet Kaur, Mamta Bhardwaj, Prashant Kumar, Suresh Singhal, Tarandeep Singh, Sarla HoodaJournal of Anaesthesiology Clinical Pharmacology 2016 32(2):153-159Amniotic fluid embolism (AFE) is one of the catastrophic complications of pregnancy in which amniotic fluid, fetal cells, hair, or other debris enters into the maternal pulmonary circulation, causing cardiovascular collapse. Etiology largely remains unknown, but may occur in healthy women during labour, during cesarean section, after abnormal vaginal delivery, or during the second trimester of pregnancy. It may also occur up to 48 hours post-delivery. It can also oc...

Conclusion Although this is only a single case but being the first to our knowledge, the good results highlight the point that both surgical management and maintenance of pregnancy during second trimester complicated by Pott’s paraplegia are possible, involving a multi-disciplinary team approach for optimal maternal and fetal outcome.
