Spinal anaesthesia is the most preffered anesthesia technique for total hip replacement, and its complications range from low entity (insignificant) to life threatening. The incidence of neurologic complications after neuraxial anaesthesia is not perfectly clear, although there are several described cases of spinal cord ischaemia. We present a case of unilateral T8-T11 spinal cord ischaemia following L2-L3 spinal anaesthesia for total hip replacement. Magnetic resonance imaging showed a hyperintense T8-T11 signal alteration on the leftside of paramedian spinal cord...

Using a single dose of local anaesthetics has some disadvantages and provides limited analgesia depending on the pharmacokinetic characteristics of the local anaesthetic used. Nevertheless, the use of continuous perineural infusions allows sustained pain control. Ultrasound-guided interpectoral block followed by the placement of catheters in patients undergoing mastectomies with or without lymph node axillary dissections can result in sufficient pain control. We present a case of a 58-year-old woman undergoing mastectomy and axillary clearance who received ultrasound-guided continuous interpectoral block for postoperative analgesia...

OBJECTIVE: Oral cancer patients have a potentially difficult airway, but if managed properly during the perioperative period, morbidity and mortality can be reduced or avoided. METHODS: The medical records of 156 patients who were operated for oral cancers were reviewed for airway management during the perioperative period. RESULTS: The surgical procedures ranged from excisions, wide local excisions with split skin graftings, hemiglossectomies and radical neck nodes dissections to pectoralis major myocutaneous or free fibular flaps...

OBJECTIVE: In this study, we aimed to determine the success rate of nasoenteric tube (NET) insertion into the postpyloric area using ultrasonography (USG) and compare with the commonly used method direct abdominal graphy. METHODS: A single anaesthesiologist placed all the NETs. The NET was visualised by two radiologists simultaneously using USG. The localisation of the tube was confirmed using an abdominal graph in all patients. RESULTS: The blind bedside method was used for NET insertion into 34 patients...

OBJECTIVE: The 90° rotation technique for inserting the Proseal laryngeal mask airway (PLMA) is reported to be better than the standard index finger insertion technique to improve the insertion success rate. The objective of this study was to evaluate and compare the ease of insertion through the 90° rotation and standard insertion techniques in terms of number of attempts, duration of insertion and occurrence of complications. METHODS: One hundred and twenty adult patients were allocated to either a standard technique group or rotation technique group with 60 patients in each...

OBJECTIVE: Numerous studies have indicated nephrotoxic effects of sevoflurane because of its two bioproducts compound A and fluoride. Cystatin C (CyC) is a more sensitive biomarker than creatinine to show early and mild changes in kidney function. We designed this prospective randomised study to compare the effects of low-flow sevoflurane anaesthesia and low-flow desflurane anaesthesia on renal functions based on CyC levels. No studies have evaluated the effects of low-flow sevoflurane anaesthesia on renal functions based on CyC levels to date...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the present study is to compare the effect of 20% mannitol and 3% NaCl on blood coagulation in vitro using rotational thromboelastometry (ROTEM). METHODS: Twenty-millilitre blood samples were obtained from 15 volunteers. In each group, 2 mL blood samples were collected into both polypropylene tubes and EDTA tubes for ROTEM and hemogram analysis. After sampling, blood samples were diluted with test solutions. Group C (control): Only blood, Group M (mannitol): 7% vol 20% mannitol concentration in the blood, Group hypertonic saline (HS): 7% vol 3% hypertonic saline (NaCl) in the blood, Group M/H (mannitol and hydroxyethyl starch solutions [HES]): 6% vol 20% mannitol concentration and 8% vol HES in the blood and Group HS/H (hypertonic saline and HES): 6% vol 3% hypertonic saline concentration and 8% vol HES in the blood...

Massimiliano Sorbello, Flavia Petrini
In the crowded world of supraglottic airway devices (SADs), many papers compare the easiness of insertion based on the different endpoints of an operator's satisfaction: first pass success, ventilation effectiveness, complications and morbidity. Proseal LMA(™) (Laryngeal Mask Airway, Teleflex Medical, Dublin, Ireland) has been extensively studied because on one hand it has a steeper learning curve and more complex insertion when compared with other SADs and on the other hand many alternative techniques are available to facilitate insertion...

Droperidol is a D2 receptor antagonist currently used in Europe for preventing postoperative nausea and vomiting. It was used to perform neurolept anaesthesia in combination with fentanyl until a Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 'black box' warning restricted its use due to cardiovascular side effects in 2001. There is no literature regarding the effects of droperidol on transcranial motor evoked potentials (TcMEPs) elicited by electrical stimulation. Our aim was to report two cases of spine surgery in which TcMEPs were lost due to droperidol administration...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to determine the incidence of bacterial and fungal contamination in anaesthetic and vasopressor drugs before and after use in operating theatres. METHODS: A cross-sectional study was conducted in the operating theatres of a university hospital. We collected 945 samples of three different drugs, namely, propofol, vecuronium and ephedrine, from 20 operating rooms and refrigerators where the unused drugs were stored. Each drug was divided into two groups, the pre-use group and the post-use group...

OBJECTIVE: Obstetric anaesthesia aims to deliver a healthy baby as well as render a comfortable operation for the mother. This study compared general and spinal anaesthesia in terms of the quality of recovery and patient satisfaction in women undergoing emergency caesarean deliveries. METHODS: In total, 100 patients were enrolled in this prospective, single-blind, cross-sectional clinical study. Patients were divided into spinal (n=50) and general (n=50) anaesthesia groups...
