BACKGROUND: Local anaesthetic-related systemic toxicity mainly results from elevated plasma concentrations of these drugs. We hypothesized that intraoral injection of submaximal doses of mepivacaine does not lead to toxic levels of this drug in blood. This study evaluated the plasma levels of mepivacaine in third molars surgeries. METHODS: Twenty-one patients were randomly assigned into two groups: group I (two unilateral third molars; submaximal dose of mepivacaine 108 mg with epinephrine 54 μg) and group II (four third molars; submaximal dose of mepivacaine 216 mg with epinephrine 108 μg)...

INTRODUCTION: We assess the effect of video-based education on patient anxiety during transrectal prostate biopsy. METHODS: A total of 246 patients who underwent transrectal prostate biopsy were prospectively enrolled in the study. Group 1 included 123 patients who received both written and video-based education, while Group 2 included 123 patients who received only written instructions regarding prostate biopsies. State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI) was used to assess state and trait anxiety (STAI-S/T) After completing the STAI-S and STAI-T questionnaires, all patients in Group 1 received written information and video-based education and they again completed STAI-S before the biopsy...

This paper describes an ultralow-power neural recording amplifier. The amplifier appears to be the lowest power and most energy-efficient neural recording amplifier reported to date. We describe low-noise design techniques that help the neural amplifier achieve input-referred noise that is near the theoretical limit of any amplifier using a differential pair as an input stage. Since neural amplifiers must include differential input pairs in practice to allow robust rejection of common-mode and power supply noise, our design appears to be near the optimum allowed by theory...

BACKGROUND: Fluoro-D-deoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) is a standard procedure for interictal assessment and accurate pre-surgical evaluation of presumed epileptogenic zone localization. Profound sedation or general anesthesia is frequently required to reduce movement artefacts in young or cognitively impaired patients during image acquisition. This study compares the impact of propofol and sevoflurane anesthesia on overall quality of PET images, detectability of a hypometabolic lesion and demarcation of the detected lesion in pediatric patients suffering from focal epilepsia...

Ovarian follicle development is a complex process mediated by interactions between oocytes and surrounding follicular cells. In an ovary, oocytes are ultimately released from Graafian follicles, which develop from antral follicles localized near the surface of an ovary. To examine the molecular interaction between these 2 cell types, direct gene transfer to follicular cells as well as oocytes appears to be a promising approach, but few studies have applied this technique. The aim of the present study was to develop a technique for gene transfer to antral follicle cells based on their accessibility near the surface of an ovary...

UNLABELLED: There are medical conditions where the etiology is not at the level of digestive system, but as a result of a distant lesion, determined by head trauma. The latter is a severe impact on the whole body, not only locally; it produces damages in the gastro-duodenal area mainly as acute stress ulcer. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Our study includes 4 cases of patients with multiple trauma, admitted in the "St. Pantelimon" Emergency Hospital, where, despite medication, they subsequently developed stress ulcer (Cushing ulcer)...

Placement of dental implants in the interforaminal region of the edentulous mandible is considered a safe and routine surgical procedure. Hemorrhage in the floor of the mouth has been reported as a rare, potentially life-threatening complication related to the placement of implants in this region. In this case report the authors present an immediate and a delayed case of massive bleeding in the floor of the mouth after implant placement. This highly vascularized region is vulnerable and bleeding can be induced easily by instrumentation, causing a vascular trauma, usually by perforation of lingual periostium...

The subcapsular hematoma of the liver (SHL) are the results of injuries such as liver needle biopsy, liver trauma, pregnancy illnesses, parasitic diseases and others. The approach of these lesions depends on the various clinical presentations of subcapsular hematoma of the liver because it may be small with minimal clinical repercussion, managed only by ultrasound observation. In some situations the SHL may present large dimensions with hemodinamic instability. A case of subcapsular hematoma of the liver secondary to anesthetic intercostal blockade to control the postoperative pain after cholecystectomy is reported...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: The multiplicity of vaccine injections during childhood leads to iterative painful and stressful experiences which may lead in turn to anticipated pain and then possibly to a true needle phobia. We aimed at evaluating a multifactorial strategy of pain management combining pharmacological and non-pharmacological approaches during vaccination, as compared to usual care, in 4- to 12-year-old children. METHODS: In all, 239 children were enrolled by 25 family practitioners in an open-label study...

The one day clinic possesses its own structure and organisation; patient management is also specific. Preoperative visit and assessment are programmed at least 48 hours before anesthesia. Preoperative examinations and choice of anesthetic technique (sedation associated with local anesthesia or not, general anesthesia, locoregional anesthesia, or hypnosedation) are discussed and determined depending upon medical history, clinical examination, and type of procedure. General recommandations, instructions about fasting, interruption of some therapies, and introduction of new medication(s) are explained orally and also provided in a written document...

INTRODUCTION: Ninety percent of oro-facial infections arise from a dental origin. The remaining 10% are the consequence of oro-pharyngeal, cutaneous or iatrogenic problems, such as in the present case. CASE REPORT: A 24-year-old patient consulted the emergency room because of a left mandibular swelling, accompagnied by trismus. Four days earlier, extraction of the 38 was performed under inferior alveolar nerve block anesthesia. A first drainage by vestibular approach was performed under general anesthesia...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The aim of this review is to describe the pharmacology, toxicology and chemistry of the new group of local anesthetics of phenylcarbamic acid type. RECENT FINDINGS: Basic esters of alkoxy-substituted phenylcarbamic acid have shown high local anesthetic potency, while maintaining a relatively safe toxicity profile. Their potency uniquely increases with the decreasing pH of the external medium. This is of importance when using local anesthesics in inflamed tissues, where the action of common local anesthetics is often problematic...

Type I IFN is a cytokine family endowed with multiple biological activities. In recent years, type I IFN has been demonstrated to play a crucial role in innate immunity, in dendritic cell maturation/differentiation and in the priming of primary antibody responses, especially when administered i.m. with a purified influenza vaccine. Due to the increasing interest in mucosal vaccination especially for respiratory infections, we investigated two different IFN-adjuvanted immunization protocols against influenza...
