Seher Erdoğan, Sevinç Kalın
Hashimoto encephalopathy (HE) is a steroid-responsive, acute or subacute encephalopathy, characterised by autoimmune thyroiditis associated with elevated antithyroid antibody titres. An 11-year-old girl was admitted to the Department of Paediatrics with generalised tonic-clonic seizures, left facial paralysis and right hemiparesis. Ceftriaxone and acyclovir were applied, and methyl prednisolone 2 mg kg-1 day-1 was administered orally. The hemiparesis improved on the 3rd day of treatment, but the facial paralysis persisted into the 15th day...

We herein report two expected difficult intubation cases that failed with an angulated-type video laryngoscope (C-MAC D-blade) and were rescued with a channelled-type Airtraq® device. The common signs and characteristics which indicated difficult ventilation and intubation in these patients were Mallampati 4 (with phonation), mandibular protrusion of B, obstructive sleep apnoea disorder, male gender, and thick neck (>46 cm). We had aids ready in the operating theatre for the anticipated difficult intubation...

Objective: Stellate ganglion (SG) block can provide pain relief in sympathetically mediated painful conditions. SG block at the sixth cervical (C6) vertebra level through lateral approach under the ultrasonogram (USG) guidance is very safe but may spare the fibres supplying the upper limb. When the drug is given at the C6 subfascially, it spreads along the cervical sympathetic chain, blocking the head/neck and upper limb. In this study, we assessed the efficacy of the SG block given at the C6 level after confirming the subfascial needle position under USG and downward spread of dye under fluoroscopy...

Objective: A variety of methods, including neuraxial and regional blocks, have been used to manage post-mastectomy pain. This study evaluates the effect of serratus anterior plane block on acute pain after mastectomy. Methods: A total of 60 patients who were candidates for mastectomy under general anaesthesia were divided in this trial into two groups. After entering the recovery room, the first-experimental-group (SAB) underwent the ultrasound-guided serratus anterior block, but the second-control-group (CTL) received no block intervention...

Objective: Supraglottic airway devices can be life-saving in the 'cannot intubate, cannot oxygenate' situation. The cricoid pressure (CP) is considered critical in the prevention of aspiration. The aim of this self-controlled study was to evaluate the effect of CP on the bag mask ventilation (BMV), and the placement of and the ventilation through, the ProSeal laryngeal mask airway (LMA). Methods: In 60 adult patients undergoing elective surgery, after induction of anaesthesia, the effect of bimanual CP (≈30N) on BMV, ventilation through the ProSeal LMA, its anatomic position and airway seal pressures were evaluated...

Objective: Postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) is a common problem associated with general anaesthesia. The incidence can be as high as 80% in high-risk patients. Our primary objective was to compare the efficacy of the combination of dexamethasone-ondansetron and dexamethasone-aprepitant in patients undergoing laparoscopic surgery. Methods: Seventy 18 to 60 years old patients scheduled for laparoscopic surgery were included in the study. Sixty-seven patients completed the study...

Objective: We investigated the effects of four different anaesthesia induction protocols on the haemodynamic response to laryngoscopy and tracheal intubation during rapid-sequence induction (RSI) in systolic hypertensive patients. Methods: One hundred and twenty hypertensive adult patients (systolic pressure >140 mmHg and diastolic pressure <90 mmHg), classified according to the American Association of Anesthesiologists as Class II and III were randomized into four groups...

Objective: Exposure to waste anaesthetic gas (WAG) is a recognised occupational hazard for health care professionals (HCP). In recovery rooms, scavenging and ventilation systems differ from those in the operating room, raising the question as to how efficient they are. This study aims to measure the levels of ambient sevoflurane over the course of consecutive workdays in the paediatric recovery room of a tertiary academic centre. Methods: The following is a descriptive-analytic study of ambient air sevoflurane levels measured using a MIRAN® 205B Series SapphIRe portable ambient air analyser...

Objective: The aim of the audits was to assess contemporary performance, with comparison of the same against previous outcomes, to gauge trends in clinical practice. This allowed for completion of the audit cycle, as well as the ability to analyse and consistently improve the quality of care delivered to our patients. Methods: We undertook three prospective audits on the quality of peri-operative anaesthetic documentation in the years 2009, 2011 and 2014, respectively...

Objective: Various drugs are available for general anaesthesia, and the anaesthesiologist in charge may choose the one that is considered as the most appropriate for each specific case. When selecting an anaesthetic drug, its specific pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamics as well as certain non-pharmacological properties have to be considered. This may lead to decisions that may be justified or unjustified according to scientific evidence and local standards. Methods: In a prospective, single-centre, non-randomised and non-interventional study, 30 attending anaesthetists were interviewed about their drug prescription for general anaesthesia cases scheduled for the next day...

REVIEW
Fabrice Petitjeans, Cyrille Pichot, Marco Ghignone, Luc Quintin
Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is not a failure of the neurological command of the ventilatory muscles or of the ventilatory muscles; it is an oxygenation defect. As positive pressure ventilation impedes the cardiac function, paralysis under general anaesthesia and controlled mandatory ventilation should be restricted to the interval needed to control the acute cardio-ventilatory distress observed upon admission into the critical care unit (CCU; "salvage therapy" during "shock state")...

Kenji Kayashima, Ryo Yamasaki
A 7-year-old girl (height, 94 cm; weight, 15.1 kg) with Down syndrome was scheduled for right patellar dislocation repositioning. The ultrasonographically measured internal transverse width of the cricoid before intubation was 7.8 mm. Attempted insertion of a cuffed Mallinckrodt® endotracheal tube (ETT) (internal diameter, 5.0 mm; deflated cuff portion, 8.4 mm diameter) failed. In contrast, the insertion of a cuffed Microcuff® ETT (5.0 mm ID; deflated cuff portion, 7.3 mm diameter) was successful. Thicker folds in the deflated cuff of the Mallinckrodt ETT could have hindered passage through the vocal cord, including the cricoid region...

Haemorrhage in the neuraxial region following spinal and epidural interventions is a rare and unexpected complication. Subdural haemorrhage is the most frequently occurring type. A 64-year-old male patient was admitted with complaints of severe headache and intermittent fever after 14 days of spinal anaesthesia and inguinal hernia operation. Neurological examination and systemic examination showed no features other than that for postural tremor. Cranial and spinal magnetic resonance (MR) imaging were requested for the differential diagnosis of the patient with secondary headaches...
