This research was aimed at establishing how the absence of active whisking in rats affects acquisition and recovery of spatial memory. The mystacial vibrissae were irreversibly paralyzed by cutting the facial nerve's mandibular and buccal branches bilaterally in the facial nerve lesion group (N=14); control animals were submitted to sham-surgery (N=15). Sham-operated (N=11) and facial nerve-lesioned (N=10) animals were trained (one session, eight acquisition trials) and tested 24hours later in a circular Barnes maze...

BACKGROUND: Strong graft-bone integration is a prerequisite for successful graft remodeling after reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) using soft tissue grafts. Novel strategies to accelerate soft tissue graft-bone integration are needed to reduce the need for bone-tendon-bone graft harvest, reduce patient convalescence, facilitate rehabilitation, and reduce total recovery time after ACL reconstruction. HYPOTHESIS: The application of ACL-derived stem cells with enhanced expression of bone morphogenetic protein 2 (BMP2) onto soft tissue grafts in the form of cell sheets will both accelerate and improve the quality of graft-bone integration after ACL reconstruction in a rat model...

BACKGROUND: Cytoreductive surgery and heated intraperitoneal chemotherapy (CS/HIPEC) is performed for selected indications at a limited number of specialized centers worldwide. Currently there is no standardized approach to the perioperative care process. We sought to capture current practices in the perioperative management of patients who undergo CS/HIPEC at high-volume centers. METHODS: Surgeon members of the American Society of Peritoneal Surface Malignancies working at high-volume CS/HIPEC centers (>10 cases/year) were invited to complete an online survey...

INTRODUCTION: Intravenous Regional Anaesthesia (IVRA) is a simple, effective method of providing anaesthesia for short duration surgical procedures on the extremities, its chief drawbacks are tourniquet pain, short duration of block and absence of post-operative analgesia. Dexmedetomidine is known to reduce anaesthetic requirements and also provide analgesia to the patient. AIM: To evaluate the efficacy of dexmedetomidine as an adjuvant to lignocaine in IVRA with respect to the quality of the block, tourniquet pain and post-operative analgesia...

Despite recent advances in perioperative patient care, postsurgical pain continues to be undermanaged. There is increasing acceptance of the concept that effective postsurgical pain management is best achieved through combined use of more than one analgesic agent or technique, and overreliance on opioids produces unwanted side effects limiting their utility. Accordingly, a balanced, multimodal approach to pain management within the larger framework of an Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) pathway has become standard at many institutions for perioperative care, to control postsurgical pain, reduce opioid-related adverse events, hasten postsurgical recovery, and shorten length of hospital stay...

BACKGROUND: Enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) aims at expediting postoperative recovery by implementing specific strategies in perioperative management. However, the tolerance to such fast-tracking protocols is under debate, especially in elderly patients. We aimed to investigate rate of compliance with the main ERAS guidelines in elderly gastrectomy patients. METHODS: Using data for 168 gastric cancer patients who underwent ERAS after gastrectomy as part of Clinical Trial NCT01653496, we calculated the rates of compliance with nine main ERAS guidelines and compared the compliance rates of elderly (≥70 years) and non-elderly (<70 years) patients...

Application of the enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) to the bariatric surgical procedures is at its early stages with little consolidated evidence. This meta-analysis evaluates present literature and indicates pathways for development of evidence-based standardized ERAS protocols for bariatric surgery. Comparative trials between ERAS and conventional bariatric surgery published till June 2016 were searched in the medical database. Comparisons were made for length of stay (LOS), readmission, complications (major/minor), and reoperation rates...

BACKGROUND: Enhanced recovery programs have become an important focus of perioperative management. A few studies have demonstrated the efficacy of an enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS, which includes optimized pain control, restricted I.V. fluids, early initiation of postoperative oral feeding, and enforced mobilization) protocol in patients undergoing radical gastrectomy. We investigated the feasibility and safety of laparoscopic radical gastrectomy within ERAS programs. METHODS: In this single-center prospective randomized controlled trial conducted between September 2013 and August 2014, 149 consecutive locally advanced gastric cancer patients (T2-4, any N, M0) diagnosed by the CT scanning were allocated to either ERAS group (N = 73) or conventional pathway group (N = 76)...

BACKGROUND: This study was performed to evaluate tolerance of liquids as discharge criteria in a perioperative enhanced recovery protocol. METHODS: Patients undergoing elective colon resections were prospectively enrolled in a standardized perioperative enhanced recovery process. Patients were eligible for discharge when able to tolerate sufficient oral liquids, as determined by clinical means, that intravenous fluids were no longer needed. RESULTS: Over an 18 month period, 94 patients were evaluated; 75 (80%) tolerated sufficient liquids such that intravenous fluids were no longer needed by the second and all by the third postoperative day...

STUDY OBJECTIVE: Two of the most feared complications for patients undergoing thyroid surgery are pain and postoperative nausea and vomiting. Thyroidectomy is considered high risk for postoperative nausea and vomiting, and recent studies have looked at adjuncts to treat pain, limit narcotic use, "fast-track" the surgical process, and enhance recovery without compromising the patient's safety. One such perioperative medication of interest is dexmedetomidine (Dex), a centrally acting α-2 agonist that has been associated with reducing pain and postoperative opioid consumption...

Enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) protocols were first introduced to help recovery after colorectal surgery. They have now been applied to multiple surgical specialties, including pancreatic surgery. ERAS protocols in pancreatic surgery have been shown to decrease length of stay and possibly postoperative morbidity.

The traditional model of hospital care has been challenged by the development of a care-management process that allows early patient autonomy (outpatient surgery, Enhanced Recovery after Surgery). Hospitalization has been transformed in response to this development, based on innovative medical and organizational strategies. Within a surgical service, the deployment of these processes requires the creation of a support structure, with re-organization of existing structures, analysis of potential obstacles, implementation of management tools, and ongoing follow-up of organizational function, clinical results, organizational and patient satisfaction...

OBJECTIVES: In recent years, there has been rapid adoption of robotically-assisted surgery (RAS) for the treatment of pelvic urological cancers. This is particularly true for radical prostatectomy (RP) where robotically-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy (RALP) has become the predominant surgical approach across England. Despite this, less than 15% of patients undergoing radical cystectomy (RC) in England in 2014 underwent a robotically-assisted radical cystectomy (RARC). However, as expertise in RAS spreads, an increasing number of cancer centres are now adopting this approach for patients undergoing RC...

OBJECTIVES: Prognosis of patients with anomalous origin of the left coronary artery from pulmonary artery has dramatically improved as a result of both, early diagnosis and improvements in surgical techniques. Post surgical complications are rare and most patients show quick improvement of the left ventricular performance after repair with complete functional recovery within one year after surgery. Exercise-induced electrocardiographic changes have been found in patients postoperatively and scars and perfusion deficits of the left ventricle may not be detected by standard echocardiographic evaluation...

Every operation can be categorized along a spectrum from "most invasive" to "least invasive", based on the approach(es) through which it is commonly undertaken. Operations that are considered "most invasive" are characterized by "open" approaches with a relatively high degree of morbidity, while operations that are considered "least invasive" are undertaken with minimally invasive techniques and are associated with relatively improved patient outcomes, including faster recovery times and fewer complications...

OBJECTIVE: Ruptured MCA aneurysms usually lead to SAH,and several cases will represent concomitant intrasylvian or intracerebral hematomas. The objective of this paper was to compare the clinical and radiographic characteristics with their different outcomes. METHODS: The charts of 30 consecutive patients with ruptured MCA aneurysm related intracranial hematoma were retrospectively reviewed. These patients were dichotomized into ISH group and ICH group by the presence of intrahematomal contrast enhancing vessel (IHCEV), and for patients under open surgery, hematoma type was further confirmed by intraoperative observation...
