The Role of Pudendal Nerve Block in Colorectal Surgery: A Systematic  Review.
CONCLUSIONS: The current evidence, though limited, supports the use of bilateral PNBs in colorectal surgical procedures in particular hemorrhoidectomies. PNBs can be safe and effective in improving patient outcomes particularly when using bupivacaine or lidocaine with either the anatomical landmark or neurostimulation technique.

Dexmedetomidine For The Treatment Of Acute Lung Injury: A Fact Or Fiction?
Authors: Zhang Z Abstract Dexmedetomidine has been widely used in the intensive care unit (ICU), with the primary aim to keep patients on an appropriate level of sedation. Both observational and randomized controlled trials have observed that the use of dexmedetomidine is associated with improved outcomes for mechanically ventilated patients [1]. In ICU patients receiving prolonged mechanical ventilation, dexmedetomidine was not inferior to other sedatives in maintaining sedation level, but was associated with shortened MV duration and improved ability to communicate pain [2]. MV is an important factor for delirium...

Effect of Hypertonic Saline during Flexible Nasopharyngeal Laryngoscopy: A Double-Blinded, Randomized, Controlled Trial.
Authors: Onal M, Keles B, Erdur O, Alatas N, Onal O Abstract Objectives: Flexible nasopharyngeal laryngoscopy (NPL) is a cost-effective, simple procedure that provides visualization of the nasal airways. However, it involves a number of challenges for both the clinician and the patient. Hypertonic saline nasal wash is used to prevent nasal secretion in acute/chronic sinusitis and after nasal surgery. We aimed to determine the efficacy of hypertonic saline by comparing the clinician's and patients' experiences during NPL.Methods: This prospective, double-blinded, randomized, controlled study was performed at a terti...
