OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to describe a novel anesthesia, intralesional lidocaine anesthesia (ILA), for ethanol sclerotherapy of venous malformation and evaluate the efficacy and safety. METHODS: A prospective study of 100 patients with venous malformations undergoing 100 sclerotherapy procedures with intralesional lidocaine anesthesia (ILA) was conducted. Pain was evaluated by numeric rating scale (NRS) immediately following the procedure. The grade of pain was classified by the NRS as no pain (0), mild (1-3), moderate (4-6), and severe (7-10)...

The higher number of adverse events reported with anesthetist-delivered sedation are likely due to the fact that anethesia professionals induce deeper sedation as compared to sedation delivered by endoscopists. The former are trained to induce general anesthesia in their daily practice, where protective reflexes are more commonly depressed and the risk for undesired cardiopulmonary events is higher.

To compare the outcomes of flexible ureterorenoscopy (F-URS) with extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) for the treatment of upper or mid calyx kidney stones of 10 to 20 mm. A total of 174 patients with radioopaque solitary upper or mid calyx stones who underwent ESWL or F-URS with holmium:YAG laser were enrolled in this study. Each group treated with ESWL and F-URS for upper or mid calyx kidney stones were retrospectively compared in terms of retreatment and stone free rates, and complications. 87% (n = 94) of patients who underwent ESWL therapy was stone free at the end of 3rd month...

OBJECTIVE: To study the effects of dopamine and phenylephrine for treatment of hypotension during cesarean section under combined spinal epidural anesthesia (CSEA) on the stereology of the placenta. METHODS: Forty puerperants undergoing cesarean section under CSEA were randomly divided into dopamine group and phenylephrine group. Ropivacaine (16 mg) was administered immediately after spinal anethesia. Blood pressure was maintained near the baseline by adjusting the drug infusion rate...

BACKGROUND: To evaluate the results of various types of radiofrequency ablation (RFA) treatment of renal tumors in patients with excessive anesthetic and surgical risk. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Data for RFA performed in in high risk patients were retrospectively evaluated. Other RFA applications in patients with no anesthetic and/or surgical risk were excluded. RFA was by ultrasound or CT guided percutaneous (USG/CT-PRFA) and retroperitoneally or transperitoneally laparoscopic (R/T-LRFA) techniques under general or local anethesia...

OBJECTIVE: To study the indication and character of the lateral-cervical approach for treating dumble-shape neurogenic tumors in cervical spine. METHODS: Retrospectively review the clinical data of 14 dumble-shape neurogenic tumors in cervical spine, from October 2005 to October 2011. Among them 8 were males and 6 were females, range from 11 to 60 years old. The maximum tumor diameter range from 3.0 to 8.0 cm, with an average of 4.8 cm; the intraspinal tumor diameter range from 1...

We report a case of bilateral giant bullae in a patient with multiple traumas. He had his arm amputated at the shoulder because of a machine accident and admitted to our hospital. Chest X-ray showed right-sided pneumothorax with bilateral giant bullae. Trimming of the stump was performed immediately after the placement of a right chest tube. He gradually developed hypoxia and hypercapnia with acidemia during the operation because of atelectasis due to sputum. Postoperatively, enlargement of right giant bulla led to frequent respiratory failure and he received a bilateral bullectomy through a median sternotomy 3 weeks after the accident...

Quercetin 3-O-beta-(2(")-galloyl)-rhamnopyranoside (QGR) is a naturally occurring quercitrin gallate, which is a polyphenolic compound that was originally isolated from Persicaria lapathifolia (Polygonaceae). QGR has been shown to have an inhibitory effect on nitric oxide (NO) production in lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-stimulated macrophage RAW 264.7 cells. Therefore, this study was conducted to investigate the inhibitory effect of QGR on nitric oxide production and inducible nitric oxide synthases (iNOS) expression in LPS-stimulated Balb/c mice...

The purpose of this study was to investigate the expression of PG mRNA in human temporomandibular joint (TMJ ) disks from patients with temporomandibular disorders (TMD). Total RNA was isolated from the TMJ disks. All patients had undergone diskectomy under general anethesia. RT-PCR was performed using primers for the proteoglycans, aggrecan and decorin. On electrophoresis of a lysate of human TMJ disks, decorin was recognized in each sample. In the calcified part of the disk which we recognized visually, aggrecan was also recognized...

Many plastic surgery procedures are performed under local anethesia. When the procedure involves the head and neck, oxygen is perilously close to the surgical field. A thorough understanding of the fire triangle will allow the plastic surgeon to develop a routine that will avoid any risk of fire. The fire triangle consists of a heat source, a fuel, and an oxidizer. By removing one component of the fire triangle, the risk of fire is averted. An in-depth look at each component is needed because fire hazards involve some surprising sources...

Fatal destruction of skeletal muscle coincident with exposure to specific drugs used during anethesia has been recognized as a potentially heritable disorder for more than 30 years. Variable expressivity and incomplete penetrance of the clinical malignant hyperthermia phenotype, together with inherent drawbacks of the in-vitro contracture test confounded efforts to discover the underlying pathogenesis until the application of molecular genetic techniques. On the basis of linkage analysis and mapping of positional candidate genes, mutant alleles at loci on chromosomes 1q, (dihydropyridine-sensitive L-type calcium channel-A1S); 3q, 5p, 7q (dihydropyridine-sensitive L-type calcium channel-LA2), and 19q (ryanodine receptor) are now believed to account for up to 50% of human malignant hyperthermia susceptibility...
