Oesophageal atresia: Are “long gap” patients at greater anesthetic risk?
Summary BackgroundLong gap oesophageal atresia occurs in approximately 10% of all oesophageal atresia infants and surgical repair is often difficult with significant postoperative complications. Our aim was to describe the perioperative course, morbidity, and early results following repair of long gap oesophageal atresia and to identify factors which may be associated with complications. MethodsThis is a single center retrospective cohort study of consecutive patients with oesophageal atresia undergoing surgical repair at The Royal Children's Hospital Melbourne from January 2006 to June 2017. ResultsTwo hundred and thirty...

Dura to spinal cord distance at different vertebral levels in children and its implications on epidural analgesia: A retrospective MRI ‐based study
ConclusionThe present study reports that the largest dura to spinal cord distance is found at the T5‐6 level, and the shortest dura to spinal cord distance at the L1‐2 level. There appears to be substantially more room in the dorsal subarachnoid space at the thoracic level. The risk of spinal cord damage resulting from accidental epidural needle advancement may be greater in the lumbar region due to a more dorsal location of the spinal cord in the vertebral canal compared to the thoracic region.

Cost ‐effectiveness of intravenous acetaminophen and ketorolac in adolescents undergoing idiopathic scoliosis surgery
Summary BackgroundEnhanced recovery after surgery protocols increasingly use multimodal analgesia after major surgeries with intravenous acetaminophen and ketorolac, despite no documented cost‐effectiveness of these strategies. AimsThe goal of this prospective cohort study was to model cost‐effectiveness of adding acetaminophen or acetaminophen + ketorolac to opioids for postoperative outcomes in children having scoliosis surgery. MethodsOf 106 postsurgical children, 36 received only opioids, 26 received intravenous acetaminophen, and 44 received acetaminophen + ketorolac as analgesia adjuncts. Costs were calculated in...

Sedation for magnetic resonance imaging using propofol with or without ketamine at induction in pediatrics —A prospective randomized double‐blinded study
Summary IntroductionDeep sedation using propofol has become a standard technique in children. This double‐blinded randomized clinical trial aims to compare the clinical effects of propofol‐mono‐sedation vs a combination of propofol and ketamine at induction and a reduced propofol infusion rate for maintenance in children undergoing diagnostic magnetic resonance imaging. MethodsChildren aged from 3 months to 10 years scheduled as outpatients for elective magnetic resonance imaging with deep sedation were included. They were randomized into 2 groups, receiving either 1 mg/kg ketamine at induction, then a propofol infus...

Comparison of intubation conditions with CMAC Miller videolaryngoscope and conventional Miller laryngoscope in lateral position in infants: A prospective randomized trial
Summary BackgroundEndotracheal intubation in lateral position in infants is a challenge. This difficulty may be surmounted to some extent by using videolaryngoscopes but the routine use of these devices as a tool to secure the airway in lateral position remains unevaluated. Therefore, we conducted a prospective, randomized controlled trial to compare the intubation conditions achieved with the CMAC videolaryngoscope and the Miller Laryngoscope in lateral position in infants. We hypothesized that CMAC videolaryngoscope would provide a better laryngoscopic view and reduce the time to intubation compared to the Miller blade. ...

Compatibility of common IV drugs with 6% hydroxyethyl starch 130/0.42 and 4% gelatin
ConclusionMost of the tested drugs did not show observable incompatibility reactions. However, some common drugs are highly incompatible with colloid infusion solutions: gelatin (cefazolin, diazepam, midazolam, phenytoin, vancomycin), hydroxyethyl starch (diazepam, midazolam, phenytoin, thiopental), and NaCl 0.9% (diazepam, ketamine (S), phenytoin, thiopental). These combinations should be avoided in clinical practice in case there are fewer intravenous lines available than needed. (Source: Pediatric Anesthesia)

Furthermore, while results showed group differences in premedication patterns and induction compliance, groups did not differ in level of negative behavior change after surgery. Future research can examine how individual differences in youth with autism impact anxiety in the perioperative setting and degree of behavior change postprocedure. (Sourc...
