Perioperative monitoring of intracranial pressure using optic nerve sheath diameter in paediatric liver transplantation
We present a case of ICP monitoring with ocular ultrasonography in a 2-year-old child with ALF for liver transplantation. Since invasive ICP monitoring was risky considering the level of coagulopathy, optic nerve sheath diameter (ONSD) monitoring was done by ultrasound. A value of 4.5 mm was chosen as the cut-off for an ICP >20 mmHg in this child and was checked at regular intervals during the surgery. Ultrasonographic ONSD assessment can be a useful modality in liver transplant recipients, with severe coagulopathy and high ICP. In our specific patient scenario, ocular ultrasound proved to be a valuable safe and noninv...

Effect of different doses of intrathecal nalbuphine as adjuvant to ropivacaine in elective lower limb surgeries: A dose finding study
Conclusion: Nalbuphine can be a good alternative to other opioids as an adjuvant intrathecally to prolong postoperative analgesia with a minimal side effect profile. Addition of nalbuphine to isobaric 0.75% ropivacaine gives the added advantage of significant analgesia with early motor recovery. We infer from our study that when compared with 1.6 mg of nalbuphine, both 0.4 and 0.8 mg nalbuphine are equally good as adjuvants to isobaric 0.75% ropivacaine in elective lower limb surgeries with prolonged analgesia, a reliable block with equal efficacy but with lesser side effects.
