pain mgmt doing microdiscectomies

I'm an M2 and I've heard from some anesthesia pain mgmt friends that they do micro discectomies and some other simple spine procedures like spinal cord stimulators. Are these the same type of procedures that neurosurgeons and orthopedic spine surgeons perform?

Acute prolapse of internal haemorrhoids is presented with oedema, inflammation and acute pain. The application of granulated sugar on swollen hae-morrhoids leads to an immediate reduction of their edema and to the patient's relief. After the topical application of sugar, haemorrhoids begin to shrink immediately and edema is drastically reduced, while haemorrhoidal tissue can easily retracted back into the anal canal. The method is a che...

CONCLUSION: In the rat model of induced chronic contractile injury, postsurgery there was a suppression of the GluN2B-p38MAPK/EPAC1 signaling pathway in the propofol group. As the p38MAPK/EPAC pathway has a significant role in the postoperative hyperalgesia, thus our experiment suggests that propofol has analgesic effects.PMID:34804196 | PMC:PMC8601802 | DOI:10.1155/2021/9305076

AbstractPurposeAllopurinol is a potent inhibitor of the enzyme xanthine oxidase used primarily in the treatment of hyperuricemia and gout. The aim of this study was to compare the analgesic efficacy of preanesthetic allopurinol versus placebo on postoperative pain and anxiety in patients undergoing abdominal hysterectomy.MethodsThis is a prospective, double-blinded, placebo-controlled, randomized clinical trial. We investigated 54 patients scheduled to undergo elective abdominal hysterectomy. Patients were randomly assigned to receive either oral allopurinol 300  mg (n = 27) or placebo (n =&thinsp...

ConclusionThe addition of PA and TS to the 3-IQ model resulted in a predictive model that performed similarly to the 3-IQ model alone. Further research is warranted in this area to better predict women at risk of severe pain post CD.

CONCLUSIONS: Despite consensus guidelines, regional anesthesia remains underutilized. Multimodals are used frequently and are modestly associated with preoperative narcotic scores.PMID:34793645

Pain Physician. 2021 Dec;24(8):571-576.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: The leakage of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) can be encountered spontaneously or after procedures such as epidural or spinal anesthesia, intrathecal chemotherapy, CSF tapping, or other various spinal procedures. The leakage of CSF can lead to intracranial hypotension, which is associated with an orthostatic headache. For such patients with this type of headache, an epidural blood patch is the treatment of choice.OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study is to compare the clinical features and efficacy of an epidural blood patch for patients with spinal leakage of CSF.STUDY ...
