Rocuronium-associated injection pain/withdrawal response is a common side effect of this muscle relaxant. Can pretreating with IV antipyretic analgesics reduce the effects?BMC Anesthesiology
In this study, the authors prospectively evaluated their free-hand technique for performing systematic and magnetic resonance imaging fusion-targeted transperineal prostate biopsy (TPBx) under local anesthesia (LA). In addition to clinically significant cancer detection rates congruent with those of several large trials,1,2 the authors demonstrated the relative safety of their technique with negligible infectious risk, albeit with the use of periprocedural antibiotics. Patient-reported pain scores were relatively low throughout the procedure, not surprisingly highest during LA administration.
We read with interest the article “Effect of Intraperitoneal Bupivacaine on Postoperative Pain in Laparoscopic Bariatric Surgeries” . We thank and congratulate the Iranian colleagues for this important contribution to this topic. Even if supported by scarce literature, effectiveness of peritoneal irrigation with local anesthe tics still remains controversial , although it seems to be one useful tool to control postoperative pain after bariatric surgery, as recently stated by a meta-analysis published within your Journal .

In perspective of COVID-19, TIVA is far more advantageous than inhalational anaesthesia. It avoids the deleterious effects of immunosuppression and lacks any respiratory irritation, thus providing an edge in the current situation. Many peripheral surgeries can be done with the patient breathing spontaneously without any airway device, t...
