Spinal or Intravenous Dexmedetomidine for Spinal Anesthesia with Chloroprocaine in Ambulatory Knee Arthroscopies: A Double-Blind Randomized Trial
Local Reg Anesth. 2021 Nov 20;14:153-160. doi: 10.2147/LRA.S324876. eCollection 2021.ABSTRACTPURPOSE: Chloroprocaine provides spinal anesthesia for day-case surgery lasting up to 40 minutes. Intravenous and spinal dexmedetomidine can prolong spinal anesthesia, but no data are available for the combination with chloroprocaine. This double-blind randomized controlled trial compares chloroprocaine with spinal or intravenous dexmedetomidine regarding block characteristics, micturition, and discharge times.PATIENTS AND METHODS: After ethical approval and informed consent, 135 patients scheduled for knee arthroscopy were randomi...

Relationship Between Gender, Age, BMI and Side of Body on the Size and Position of Nerves of the Brachial Plexus in Axilla: Pilot Study
The objective of this pilot study was to determine the effect of age, gender, BMI and side of body on the size and position of these nerves and to determine the feasibility of a further study.METHODS: Twenty healthy volunteers were recruited. The ultrasound position of the nerves was confirmed by a dynamic scan. The size of the nerves was calculated using the freehand calliper tool. A graph was designed to study the position of the nerves. ImageJ was used to analyse the position of the nerves. Student's t-tests were carried out to compare the gender and side of arm with the size of the nerve. Pearson's correlation coeffici...

Evaluation of the Analgesic Efficacy of Bilateral Ultrasound-Guided Transversus Thoracic Muscle Plane Block on Post-Sternotomy Pain: A Randomized Controlled Trial
This study discusses the efficacy of an ultrasound-guided transversus thoracic muscle plane block (TTPB) in patients undergoing heart surgery, including sternotomy.PATIENTS AND METHODS: In this prospective trial, 60 patients were randomly assigned to two groups: transversus (T) or general anesthesia (GA). Patients in the T group received TTPB with GA and 15 mL of 0.25% bupivacaine was administered on either side. Patients in the GA group received TTPB along with GA, but 15 mL saline was injected on either side instead. The patients were followed up postoperatively. The percentage of patients receiving additional opioids, e...
