Tetanus is an acute and deadly disease caused by Clostridium tetani. A 60-year-old male came to hospital after he injured his thumb with a knife. Ten days later, he returned to hospital with abdominal spasms. He was vaccinated against tetanus and referred to intensive care unit. As he had sudden difficulty in respiration, he was entubated. Midazolam, magnesium and esmolol infusion were started. Next day, muscle spasms progressed all over his body. Midazolam infusion was replaced with propofol and vecuronium...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The quadratus lumborum block was initially described in 2007 and aims at blocking the same nerves as the ones involved on the Transverse Abdominis Plane block, while accomplishing some visceral enervation as well due to closer proximity with the neuroaxis and sympathetic trunk. Given its versatility, we have successfully used it in a wide range of procedures. We report two cases where we believe the dispersion of local anesthetic is likely to have led to a previously undescribed complication...

Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) represents a serious complication associated with antineoplastic drugs. Although there are no medications available that effectively prevent CIPN, many classes of drugs have been used to treat this condition, including anticonvulsants, serotonin and noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors, and opioids. However, these therapeutic options yielded inconclusive results in CIPN clinical trials and produced assorted side effects with their prolonged use. Thus, there is an urgent need to develop efficacious and safe treatments for CIPN...

We consider that general anesthesia will be an appropriate and safe method as regional methods could lead to significant time loss in the prevention or minimization of complications. High blockage required for regional anesthetic methods in pregnant women with TGA and the maintenance of hemodynamic stability may become difficult due to neuroaxial sympathectomy even if a successful neuroaxial block has been provided. Agents with minimal effect on cardiovascular functions should be preferred for anesthesia induction and maintenance and close hemodynamic monitoring should be done during intraoperative and postoperative periods...

BACKGROUND: Post-dural puncture headache (PDPH) is an important complication of neuroaxial anesthesia and more frequently noted in pregnant women. The pain is described as severe, disturbing and its location is usually fronto-occipital. The conservative treatment of PDPH consists of bed rest, fluid theraphy, analgesics and caffeine. Epidural blood patch is gold standard theraphy but it is an invasive method. The greater occipital nerve (GON) is formed of sensory fibers that originate in the C2 and C3 segments of the spinal cord and it is the main sensory nerve of the occipital region...

UNLABELLED: Postoperative pain management is an important part of complex perioperative care in patients undergoing thoracotomy, irrespective of the procedure type. Adequate pain relief leads to early mobilisation, improves respiratory functions and decreases global stress response. Thus, good perioperative pain management significantly reduces postoperative complications. Currently, numerous analgesic methods are available for the management of acute postthoracotomy pain including patient- or nurse-controlled systemic administration of analgesics, infiltration with local anaesthetics, intrapleural or intercostal nerve blockades and neuroaxial blocks (paravertebral, intrathecal, epidural)...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: This article reviews various adjunct drugs used in the context of neuroaxial blocks in children and to provide a literature and evidence-based suggestion for the rational use of such adjuncts. RECENT FINDINGS: Contrary to plain local anaesthetics, preservative-free morphine and clonidine, ketamine in neonatal rodents has been found to enhance apoptosis in the spinal cord. Dexmedetomidine has been shown to be equally effective as clonidine as an adjunct to caudal blocks...

BACKGROUND: While it is assumed that neuraxial analgesia and pain management may beneficially influence perioperative hemodynamics, few studies provided data quantifying such effects and none have assessed the potential contribution of the addition of a nerve block. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: This clinical trial compared the visual analog scale (VAS) scores and measurement of arterial tone using augmentation index of patients who received combined spinal-epidural (CSE) only to patients who received both CSE and lumbar plexus block...

BACKGROUND: Maternal hypotension after spinal anesthesia for cesarean delivery is common. Many studies performed on the b2-adrenoceptor (b2AR) gene variants and their association with vasopressor requirements during and after neuroaxial block have contradictory conclusions. OBJECTIVES: The aim of the study was to evaluate the influence of the b2AR in codons 16 and 27 on the incidence of maternal hypotension and ephedrine consumption after spinal anesthesia for cesarean delivery in an Arab ethnic group...

BACKGROUND: HELLP syndrome (hemolysis, elevated liver enzymes, low platelets) is an obstetric complication with heterogonous presentation and multisystemic involvement. It is characterized by microangiopathic hemolytic anemia, elevated liver enzymes by intravascular breakdown of fibrin in hepatic sinusoids and reduction of platelet circulation by its increased consumption. METHODS: In terms of these patients' anesthetic management, it is essential to consider some details: (1) effective, safe perioperative management by a multidisciplinary approach, and quick, good communication among clinical specialists to achieve correct patient management; (2) neuroaxial block, particularly spinal anesthesia, is the first choice to do the cesarean if there is only moderate, but not progressive thrombocytopenia; (3) if a general anesthesia is required, it is necessary to control the response to stress produced by intubation, especially in patients with either severe high blood pressure or neurological signs, or to prevent major cerebral complications; (4) invasive techniques, e...

BACKGROUND: Hypoxemia caused high altitude leads to an increase and variability in CSF volume. The purpose of this prospective study was to detect the differences, if any, between moderately highlanders and lowlanders in terms of anaesthetic parameters under neuroaxial anaesthesia. METHODS: Consecutive patients living at moderately high altitude (Erzurum, 1890 m above the sea level) and sea level (Sakarya, 31 m above the sea level) scheduled for elective lower extremity surgery with spinal anaesthesia were enrolled in this study (n = 70, for each group)...

Since the 1980s epidural analgesia has been considered the gold standard for pain relief in labour. Over the past decade there has been a growing trend in UK maternity units to offer remifentanil PCA as a fast, safe alternative for women where epidural analgesia is contraindicated. Increasingly more obstetric units and anaesthetists are extending the use of remifentanil and in many units it is now preferred over central neuroaxial blocks (Stocki et al 2014). It would appear that remifentanil is being hailed as the panacea for labour pain...

BACKGROUND: Pain relief using regional neuroaxial blockade is standard care for patients undergoing major thoracic surgery. Thoracic epidural analgesia (TEA) provides effective postoperative analgesia but has unwanted side effects, including hypotension, urinary retention, nausea, and vomiting, and is highly operator dependent. Single-shot intercostal nerve and paravertebral blockade have not been widely used because of the short duration of action of most local anesthetics; however, the recent availability of liposomal bupivacaine (LipoB) offers the potential to provide prolonged blockade of intercostal nerves (72 to 96 hours)...

Epidural analgesia is now the method of choice for the treatment of pain in labour and delivery. However, this technique may fail and provide inadequate or null alleviation to the mother. This paper reviews the risk factors, possible causes and possible therapeutic alternatives to inadequate analgesia, whether pharmacological therapies (neuroaxial, peripheral blocks or analgesic administration via intravenous or inhalational routes) or non-pharmacological ones (relaxation techniques, psychological or mechanical)...
