Currently, more than 85% of children with congenital cardiopathy survive to adulthood, partly due to the development of new therapies, but especially because of the tendency for earlier surgical corrections. On the other hand, adult patients with non-corrected tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) are hard to find. The objective of the present report was to describe a case of repair of TOF in an adult patient...

The efficacy of tramal for preventing motor hyperactivity is assessed in patients on spontaneous respiration after surgery during fiber bronchoscopy under a short-acting hypnotic ethomidate. Group 1 consisted of 22 patients to whom 100 mg of tramal was injected intravenously 30 min before fiber bronchoscopy, group 2 of 10 patients subjected to fiber bronchoscopy without preliminary tramal. Ethomidate caused manifest 20-45-sec myoclonus in the distal parts of the upper and lower limbs in 80% of cases. Pretreatment with tramal (100 mg intravenously) decreased the severity and incidence of myoclonus to 18...
