Magnesium Sulfate Combined with a Levobupivacaine Periarticular Cocktail for Analgesia in the Early Postoperative Period after Total Knee Arthroplasty

This study aimed to evaluate the analgesic effect of magnesium sulfate combined with a levobupivacaine periarticular cocktail in the early postoperative period after total knee arthroplasty (TKA). A total of 60 patients who underwent primary unilateral TKA in our department from March 2018 to May 2019 were prospectively selected and randomly divided into the trial group (30 patients with 20 mL of magnesium sulfate 250 mg + levobupivacaine 50 mg + triamcinolone 25 mg + 0.9% normal saline) and the control group (30 patients with 20 mL of levobupivacaine 50 mg + triamcinolone 25 mg + 0.9% normal saline). Visual analog scale (VAS) scores at 6, 12, 24, 48, and 72 hours postoperatively during rest; VAS scores at 12, 24, 48, and 72 hours postoperatively during motion; the time required to reach 30 degrees straight leg elevation and 60 degrees active knee flexion; and the analgesia pump dosage at 6, 12, 24, and 48 hours postoperatively were recorded. Magnesium sulfate combined with levobupivacaine injection around the knee joint can significantly prolong the time of postoperative analgesia, significantly reduce the use of postoperative analgesics, and effectively alleviate early postoperative pain after TKA.

CONCLUSION: We report the successful management of anesthesia without lethal arrhythmia in a patient with ARVC and an ICD. An adequate amount of analgesia should be administered during general anesthesia to maintain adequate anesthetic depth and to avoid stress and pain. PMID: 32473832 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Having responded well to an antidepressant I was determined to continue treatment for 6 months, to increase the probability of a full and lasting recovery. My productivity at work and confidence in social situations increased and it seemed easier to talk about emotional matters. Side effects became gradually less bothersome, though at times I was somewhat apathetic. Escitalopram may have helped to reduce long-standing back pain and niggly acoustic problems. Some symptoms appeared whilst I reduced the antidepressant dosage steadily: these were mild and resolved swiftly, but a few were quite puzzling. I hope this experience ...

In this study, we present three cases of testicular infarction and discuss their clinical characteristics, imaging features and clinical management. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Three adult males with prolonged epididymitis presented with chronic unilateral testicular pain, tenderness, and palpable swelling, including left varicocele in one case and hydrocele in the other two cases. Patient's symptoms were not relieved after antibiotic therapy. We analyzed the diagnosis, management, and outcome of these three cases of testicular infarction resulting from prolonged epididymitis. This includes the clinical characteristics, feat...
