Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease comprises a group of disorders characterized by progressive muscle weakness and wasting. Reviewing the anaesthetic literature produced conflicting reports about the best anaesthetic options for patients with CMTD; as they are at increased risk of prolonged response to muscle relaxants, malignant hyperthermia and risks of regional anaesthesia. We present a case of the successful use of total intravenous anaesthesia with dexmedetomidine and propofol combined with caudal block using bupivacaine mixed with dexmedetomidine without any complications, for a 17 year old male patient with Charcot Marie-Tooth disease who underwent a lower limb orthopedic surgery...

Gomez-Lopez-Hernandez syndrome, also known as cerebello-trigeminal dermal dysplasia, is a rare neurocutaneous syndrome classically characterized by the triad of rhombencephalosynapsis, trigeminal anesthesia, and bilateral parietal alopecia. Associated clinical features include a characteristic facial appearance (mid-face hypoplasia, hypertelorism, and low-set, posteriorly rotated ears), brachycephaly, strabismus, ataxia, developmental delay, short stature, and corneal opacities. Given the associated congenital anomalies, anesthetic care may be required for various surgical interventions...

Skin reactions following the application of electrocardiography (ECG) electrodes have been reported in adults and children, and are postulated to result from contact with the conductive gel or adhesive used on the electrodes. Although contact dermatitis is the usual cause of such reactions, contact depigmentation or hypopigmentation may also occur. We report a case of hypopigmentation in a healthy boy following continuous electrocardiography monitoring during general anesthesia for dental rehabilitation.

Loeys-Dietz syndrome (LDS) is a rare autosomal dominant disease related to genetic mutations in receptors for the cytokine transforming growth factor-receptor type 1 (TGFB-R1) or 2 gene (TGFB-R2) on the cell surface. LDS results in abnormal protein synthesis and dysfunctional connective tissue, which can result in unique cardiovascular anesthesia challenges related to perioperative management. Patients with LDS may manifest hypertelorism, bifid uvula or cleft palate, and arterial tortuosity. Virtually all LDS patients show some type of abnormal skin findings and bleeding tendency...

Crisponi syndrome is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by intermittent episodes of muscular contraction of the facial muscles with trismus and excessive salivation simulating a tetanic spasm. These episodes occur in response to tactile stimulation or during crying. Associated physical and constitutional findings include characteristic facial anomalies, camptodactyly, intermittent hyperthermia, and feeding difficulties. We present a 15-month-old girl who required anesthetic care during laparoscopic fundoplication and gastric tube insertion...

Takotsubo cardiomyopathy, also known as stress-induced cardiomyopathy, is a disease in which the patient exhibits transient, reversible left ventricular dysfunction that is triggered by physical or emotional stress. Prolongation of QT interval, a risk factor for arrhythmia and sudden death, has been reported to be prevalent among patients with Takotsubo cardiomyopathy and is also observed in those with severe anorexia nervosa. In this report, we describe the rare case of a 30-year-old female patient with anorexia nervosa who developed Torsades de Pointes associated with Takotsubo cardiomyopathy during emergence from general anesthesia for emergency exploratory laparotomy...

Combined liver and kidney transplantation is a highly demanding and challenging procedure for anesthesiologists due to the lengthy and complicated nature of the procedure, the critical patient condition and the need to balance the intravascular volume to maintain the venous outflow of the hepatic allograft and also the diuresis of the renal allograft. Intravascular volume management and coagulation control, seem to be the most important issues during combined liver and kidney transplantation. There is sparsity of data in the literature concerning the anesthetic and fluid management in CLKT...

RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL

BACKGROUND: Postoperative pain management is a critical concern in pediatric surgery. Acetaminophen is the safest and most widely used analgesic in children. The present study compared the analgesic efficacy of intravenous (IV) and rectal acetaminophen versus placebo in children undergoing inguinal herniorrhaphy. METHODS: A total of 120 children, who were candidate for elective surgical repair of unilateral inguinal hernia, were enrolled and randomly allocated to four groups of 30 patients each to receive IV acetaminophen, acetaminophen suppository, IV placebo, and placebo suppository during surgery...

BACKGROUND: General anesthesia (GA) may affect cognitive functions and result in postoperative cognitive dysfunction. The aim of our prospective pilot study was to compare the short-term postoperative cognitive function of unimpaired elderly patients undergoing first versus repeated exposure to GA. METHODS: After approval from the Hospital Ethics Committee and informed consent of all participants, 46 patients, 70.1 ± 7.1 years of age, 20 men and 26 women were enrolled in the study...

INTRODUCTION: Postoperative pain due to tissue damage caused during surgery not only causes discomfort for the patients, but can also result in prolonged hospitalization, increased morbidity and respiratory disorders, and readmission to the hospital. For postoperative pain control, numerous methods and medications have been suggested, such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and narcotics. Pethidine, as a narcotic analgesic, and ketorolac, as an NSAID, are widely used for pain control...

BACKGROUND: This prospective, randomized, single blind, single operator study was conducted to compare hemodynamic responses when endotracheal intubation was performed using the Bonfils intubation fibrescope versus the C-MAC videolaryngoscope. METHOD: Forty-four ASA I patients aged between 18 and 60 years, scheduled for elective surgery requiring endotracheal intubation were recruited. They were randomized into the Bonfils group or C-MAC group. Hemodynamic changes, laryngeal view, duration of intubation and post intubation complications were evaluated...

BACKGROUND: People with special needs undergoing dental surgery frequently require general anesthesia. We investigated the effect of remifentanil vs fentanyl on stress response and postoperative pain in people with special needs undergoing day-case dental surgery. METHODS: Forty-six adult patients with cognitive impairment undergoing day-case dental surgery under general anesthesia were allocated to receive intraoperatively either fentanyl 50 μg iv bolus (group F, n = 23) or continuous infusion of remifentanil 0...

Ghaleb Okla, Douglas Eden, Nadine Okla
Simulation-based medical education (SBME) and simulation-based mastery learning (SBML) has become well-established in undergraduate and graduate medical, nursing and allied healthcare training programs. Although still in its relative infancy, the use of hi-fidelity simulation to train students in a variety of health-related professions is becoming a foundational cornerstone in program curriculum in the United States and, increasingly, in the international circle. The entire investment return resulting from the inclusion of simulation training labs in healthcare programs has just begun to be realized...

Sahar M Siddik-Sayyid, Waseem AlFahel, Mohamad F El-Khatib
Negative pressure pulmonary edema is a potentially life-threatening condition that may occur when a large negative intrathoracic pressure is generated against a 'physically' obstructed upper airway during emergence from anesthesia. We report a 35 year old male patient who is morbidly obese and undergoing laparoscopic gastric bypass who developed negative pressure pulmonary edema without any evidence of a 'physical' upper airway obstruction. In our patient, the negative pressure pulmonary edema occurred after complete reversal of neuromuscular blockade and during manual positive pressure ventilation with the endotracheal tube still in place and in the presence of an oral airway...

A 52 yearold female presented with a thoracic paravertebral tumour causing spinal nerve root compression and lower limbs neurologic symptoms. The patient was scheduled to undergo thoracic decompression laminectomy and instrumentation. Markedly severe hemodynamic fluctuations happened during the manipulation of the tumor and continued after the tumor was removed. After multimodal antihypertensive therapy the vital signs were adequately managed and the surgery was successfully performed without complications...
