Thermal disbudding in goat kids in the Netherlands: Current practice, complications and considerations

This report describes current practice as well as complications noted following disbudding of goat kids in the Netherlands. Complications include failure to recover from anaesthesia as well as neurological symptoms and subsequent death up to two weeks after the procedure. Considerations for optimal disbudding management, including practical, legislative, technical, and anaesthesiologic concerns are briefly discussed. Data on both the safety and efficacy of local anaesthetic injections for disbudding in goat kids are scarce. Therefore, more field studies focusing on feasibility and efficacy of local anaesthetic approaches with or without sedation, and the use of NSAID’s peri- and postoperatively, are recommended.

A 44-year-old woman presented with lumbar pain (visual analog scale [VAS]  = 9) secondary to adrenocortical carcinoma sclerotic L4-vertebral metastasis. The positron emission tomography-computed tomography hypermetabolic lesion (Fig 1a,d) was unresponsive to radiotherapy or chemotherapy. She refused surgery. Following general anesthesia and aseptic preparation, 2 power d rill-mounted (Aesculap, Center Valley, Pennsylvania) k-wires were inserted in each vertebral pedicle with lateromedial opposite directions, resulting in crossed wires.

Insufficient perioperative pain treatment is known as a highly predictive risk factor for the development of chronic postoperative pain. Remifentanil is an ultrashort-acting opioid that provides quick and efficient analgesia but is associated with the induction of opioid-induced hyperalgesia. Despite these well-known characteristics, this substance is being increasingly used in anesthesia and in a variety of medical fields, such as intensive-care medicine and obstetrics. The aim of our study was to reveal whether remifentanil influences postoperative pain, the requirement for postoperative analgesics, and requirement of an...

Background: The manufacturer Ambu ® recommends that the AuraOnce™ laryngeal mask be removed once the patient is fully awake. Studies have shown benefit in removal of the laryngeal mask airway while a patient is deeply anaesthetized. Current evidence is inconclusive, as to which approach is preferable and safer in adults.Methods: one hundred and sixteen adult patients were randomly assigned to two groups of 58. For the deep arm; The AuraOnceTM laryngeal mask was removed after attaining an end tidal minimum alveolar concentration of Isoflurane of 1.15%. Occurrence of airway complication(s) (One or more of the follo...

Conclusion: Impairment of GR dimerization aggravates systemic hypotension and impairs lung function during LPS-induced endotoxic shock in mice. We demonstrate that the GR dimer is an important mediator of hemodynamic stability and lung function, possibly through regulation of Opn, during LPS-induced systemic inflammation.
