Delayed emergence from anaesthesia and bilateral mydriasis following bilateral pallidotomy
Ankur Khandelwal, Mihir Prakash Pandia, Ritesh LamsalIndian Journal of Anaesthesia 2018 62(6):466-469 Pallidotomy is a surgical procedure done widely for Parkinson's disease and various dystonias refractory to medical treatment. The technique involves radiofrequency (RF) thermal coagulation of globus pallidus internus, either unilaterally or bilaterally. The technique has been shown to produce good success. However, the involvement of nearby vital structures can result in new post-operative complications. We encountered a case of delayed emergence from anaesthesia associated with bilateral mydriasis and visual field d...

Intraoperative magnetic resonance imaging for neurosurgery & #8211; An anaesthesiologist & #39;s challenge
Rajashree U Gandhe, Chinmaya P BhaveIndian Journal of Anaesthesia 2018 62(6):411-417 Intraoperative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-guided neurosurgery has gained popularity over the years globally. These surgeries require a dedicated operating room and MRI-compatible anaesthesia equipment. The anaesthesiologist providing care in this setup needs to be experienced and vigilant to ensure patient safety. Strict adherence to MRI safety checklists and regular personnel training would avoid potential accidents and life-threatening emergencies. Teamwork, good communication, preprocedure planning, and familiarity with the surro...

Does the phase of the menstrual cycle really matter to anaesthesia ?
Madhuri S Kurdi, Ashwini H RamaswamyIndian Journal of Anaesthesia 2018 62(5):330-336 The menstrual cycle is a physiological phenomenon that is accompanied by several hormonal fluctuations involving oestrogen and progesterone. Oestrogen and progesterone exert several physiological effects. There are many questions pertaining to the influence of the physiology of menstruation on anaesthesia. We attempted to find out whether the phase of the menstrual cycle can alter the physiological functions during anaesthesia, the perioperative management and outcomes. We performed a literature search in Google Scholar, PubMed and Cochra...
