CONCLUSIONS: Vulnerability was not associated with a longer hospital LOS but with higher risk of non-home discharge. Vulnerable patients might benefit from early identification and advanced planning with earlier transfer to rehabilitation centres. PMID: 32240518 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: When clinical and surgical heterogeneity were minimized, elderly patients undergoing minimally invasive transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion not only had comparable rates of perioperative complications but also experienced similar improvements in pain, function, and quality of life. A high rate of satisfaction was achieved. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Level II, prognostic study. PMID: 32197034 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Use of the Microcuff® During General Anesthesia for Patients With Scoliosis. Anesth Prog. 2020;67(1):23-27 Authors: Kishimoto T, Hayashi S, Nakanishi Y, Goto T, Kosugi K, Sakurai S Abstract Scoliosis may often be associated with a variety of cardiovascular and respiratory conditions or diseases, and depending on the severity of the spinal deformity, it may also complicate anesthetic management because of the difficulty of neck extension and tracheal deformity. Therefore, patients with scoliosis may require careful perioperative anesthetic considerations. A 14-year-old girl was scheduled to undergo ...

Authors: Asahi Y, Hyodo M, Ikai S, Deki I, Aono A, Takasaki Y, Omichi S, Uzawa N, Niwa H Abstract This case report describes the importance of inspecting the hypopharynx via direct laryngoscopy prior to laryngeal mask airway (LMA) insertion during induction of general anesthesia for dental patients with special needs. A 51-year-old man with cerebral palsy underwent induction of general anesthesia for dental extractions and subsequently was noted to be missing a tooth. Prompt inspection of the airway via direct laryngoscopy revealed the tooth resting within the pharynx, which was subsequently retrieved, prior to ins...

Conclusions: Pharmacologic inhibition of α5 subunit-containing γ-aminobutyric acid type A receptors attenuated cognitive deficits after traumatic brain injury and enhanced synaptic plasticity in hippocampal slices. Collectively, these results suggest that α5 subunit-containing γ-aminobutyric acid type A receptors are novel targets for pharmacologic treatment of traumatic brain injury–induced persistent cognitive deficits.

Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a seronegative inflammatory disease that progressively affects the spine and sacroiliac joints and is more common in men with the B 27 human leucocyte antigen. This leads to inflammation, synovitis and, eventually, secondary arthritis in the hips of those affected. Hips of those affected are often completely ankylosed at time of presentation to the orthopedic surgeon. Total hip arthroplasty offers a stable mobile hip for patients who are functionally disabled due to their debilitating disease. As disease progresses, the native hip anatomy, which is familiar to orthopedic surgeon in routine to...
