Thamer Nouh, Tareq Alsabahi, Abdulmajeed Altoijry, Talal Altuwaijri
We report a case of a 32-year-old male patient who developed unilateral lower-limb compartment syndrome following a long surgical procedure during which intermittent pneumatic compression was used as deep-venous thrombosis prophylaxis. This complication of surgery is associated with significant morbidity. Previously published reports have suggested the possible risk factors and a way to reach a diagnosis at an early stage. The possible risk factors we present are the long operative time and the use of intermittent pneumatic compression as deep-vein thrombosis prophylaxis...

Rakhi Bansal, Naveen Paliwal, Rakesh Karnawat, Akanksha Kothari
Parasitic twin is a rare form of conjoined twins with an incidence ranging from 1 in 50,000 to 1,00,000 live births. In thoracopagus type, both hearts are joined together and often are associated with underlying congenital cardiac malformations. The separation surgery is a challenging task for both the surgeon as well as anesthetist due to the complexity of the procedure and long duration of surgery, carrying mortality close to 100% in case of significant cardiac fusion. Here, we are sharing anesthetic management of successful separation of a rare type of parasitic male conjoined twins who had connected hearts and common liver...

#12
Jose R Navas-Blanco, Iani Patsias, Joseph A Sanders
Abnormalities of the coronary vascular branches and cardiac hemangiomas represent together unusual clinical entities, with an incidence difficult to establish for the former as the vast majority of the patients with these anomalous vascular connections are usually asymptomatic and 2.8% for the latter. Symptomatic patients may develop dyspnea on exertion or chest pain secondary to a "coronary steal" phenomenon as part of the underlying pathophysiology of the disease. The authors report a case of a patient with concomitant cardiac capillary hemangioma with multiple coronary to pulmonary artery fistula connections that was successfully treated with surgical resection of the tumor and ligation of the fistula tracts...

Spinal anesthesia (SA) is utilized as an effective means of anesthesia and has an impressive safety record but it is not devoid of complications, and sometimes, the complications are as fatal as cardiac arrest. Although many factors are involved in etiology of cardiac arrest under SA, the vagal responses to the decreased preload are the most common culprits. We report two cases of cardiac arrest under SA; which happened despite our patient being adequately preloaded utilizing the ultrasonography-guided targeted volume therapy...

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is prevalent and presents perioperative challenges. There are guidelines regarding perioperative care of OSA, but analgesia management of OSA patients is inconsistent or inadequate. This is a study of the United Kingdom anesthesiologists' postoperative analgesia preferences for OSA patients. Overall, the 1st choice of main analgesia was continuous epidural local anesthetic (LA) without opioid, at 30% rate; P = 0.001. The 2nd choice was continuous epidural LA plus fentanyl, at 21% rate; P = 0...

The postoperative pain management in open thoracotomy is very crucial as the effective analgesia can prevent respiratory and thrombotic complications and lead to early mobilization and discharge. The thoracic epidural analgesia is the gold standard in such surgeries; however, there are few adverse effects such as hypotension, dural puncture, and contralateral block that always warrants safer alternative. Recently, with the advent of ultrasound, the regional anesthetic techniques are getting more popular to avoid such complications...

Olumuyiwa A Bamgbade
The vertical infraclavicular block (VIB) of the brachial plexus is commonly used to provide local anesthesia (LA) of the upper limb. The original method involves LA injection at the mid-point of an infraclavicular line between acromion and jugular fossa. However, this method is ineffective in adult patients with variant anatomy. Two modified VIB methods have been previously suggested. This prospective observational, clinical study compared both modified VIB approaches. The study showed that modified VIB is easy, efficacious, and applicable to all adult patients; including those with small stature, extreme tallness, or variant anatomy...

A left lung mass after induction and tracheal intubation, which partially was obstructing the left main bronchus, was accidentally discovered in a 56-year-old female scheduled to undergo elective total thyroidectomy. Her preoperative chest X-ray showed a right-sided shift of the trachea. She did not have stridor or shortness of breath or superior vena cava obstructive syndrome. Induction and tracheal intubation were performed uneventfully. Fiberoptic bronchoscopy performed and showed complete obstruction on the left main bronchus...

Henry Tan Chor Lip, Tan Jih Huei, Syed Rasul Bin G Syed Hamid, Simon Jerome Vendargon
The prevalence of pulmonary artery catheter (PAC) entrapment in open-heart surgery is scarce with a prevalence rate of 0.065%. Challenges in managing such cases lie particularly in choosing the modalities (chest roentgenogram, fluoroscopy, and transesophageal echocardiography) to accurately identify the anatomic location and cause of entrapment. In this case, we report a 42-year-old man who underwent mitral valve replacement with PAC entrapment discovered on postoperative day 2 and subsequently underwent retrieval after re-sternotomy...

Purpose: The purpose of the study was to review and summarize current literature concerning the validation and application of lung ultrasound (LUS) in critically ill patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). Materials and Methods: An extensive literature search was conducted using PubMed, Cochrane Review, Google Scholar, and Ohio State University Link based on the question if LUS should be considered a reliable investigational technique for ARDS diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis in pediatric and adult population...

REVIEW

Massive blood loss has been a dreaded complication of liver transplantation, and the accompanying transfusion is associated with adverse outcomes in the form of decreased patient and graft survival. With advances in both surgical techniques and anesthetic management during transplantation, blood and blood products requirements reduced significantly. However, transfusion practices vary among different centers. The altered coagulation parameters in patients with liver cirrhosis results in a state of "rebalanced hemostasis" and patients are just as likely to clot as they are to bleed...
