This study was conducted to determine the prevalence and severity of postoperative pain in the first 24 hours after surgery and to emphasize the importance of postoperative pain assessment.DESIGN: A descriptive study.METHODS: This study was carried out on May 21, 2019 with 898 patients who had completed the postoperative 24th hour in the surgical clinics of 10 training and research hospitals in Istanbul, the capital of Turkey. Point prevalence was used in the study. Data were collected using a questionnaire developed by the researchers and the Revised American Pain Society Patient Outcome Questionnaire. Descriptive statist...

CONCLUSIONS: The response time for the physician to change the PCA program when necessary was shorter for patients using RT and alerts to the physician were more frequent compared with spot checks by nurses. RT helps to decrease nurses' workload, ropivacaine consumption, and costs but did not affect postoperative pain relief, complication rate, or patient-reported satisfaction score.IRB CONTACT INFORMATION: Comité de Protection des Personnes, Sud Méditerranée III, Montpellier-Nîmes, France, registration number EudraCT A01698-35.CLINICAL TRIAL NUMBER: ClinicalTrials.gov ID:NCT02018068 PROTOCOL: Th...

J Am Podiatr Med Assoc. 2021 Sep 1;111(5):Article_15. doi: 10.7547/20-171.ABSTRACTDenervation has been a recommended treatment option for a range of pathologies, including relief from chronic pain; however, literature discussing complete denervation of the distal saphenous nerve for foot pain has not been found. A case report of surgical decompression for compartment syndrome resulting in chronic, debilitating foot pain that was successfully alleviated by complete saphenous nerve denervation is presented. The predominant area of the patient's pain was on the medial aspect of the foot, where a thickened scar from a decompre...

Can Vet J. 2021 Dec;62(12):1292-1297.ABSTRACTA 7-month-old Hampshire ram, with no history of trauma or breeding, was referred for treatment of acute, unilateral scrotal swelling. Physical examination revealed a moderately sized, soft, left-sided, non-reducible swelling of the proximal scrotum and mild swelling of the scrotal neck. Ultrasound evaluation of the scrotum revealed morphologically normal testicles and a mild accumulation of free fluid in the left vaginal tunic. Unilateral, laparoscopic inguinal herniorrhaphy under general anesthesia was performed. The herniated omentum was reduced and barbed suture was used to i...

We present a case of 30-year-old patient who had undergone pneumonectomy and was posted for laparoscopic appendicectomy. General anesthesia was instituted, and with some modifications in ventilation, the procedure was uneventful and we were able to extubate the patient on the table. Understanding of the physiological consequences of pneumonectomy facilitated the provision of safe anesthesia.

AbstractPostoperative cognitive dysfunction (POCD) is a decline in cognitive test performance which persists months after surgery. There has been great interest in the anesthesia community regarding whether variables generated by commercially available processed EEG monitors originally marketed to prevent awareness under anesthesia can be used to guide intraoperative anesthetic management to prevent POCD. Processed EEG monitors represent an opportunity for anesthesiologists to directly monitor the brain even if they have not been trained to interpret EEG waveforms. There is continued equipoise regarding whether any of the ...

We describe a technique of resecting bone cartilage and getting stable fixation with 2 mini incisions, 1 lateral and 1 in the digital pulp. Using a digital block anesthesia and under fluoroscopy, a small round burr is introduced into the joint by a lateral joint line stab incision. The joint space is enlarged by manual traction on the finger. After adequate cartilage resection, good bone to bone contact in an adequate position is fixed with a cannulated Herbert screw inserted percutaneously by the finger pulp. We describe 4 cases operated with this technique, 3 for pain and 1 for esthetics. All 4 demonstrated good results ...
