A 34-year-old man with adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD) was scheduled for pump system insertion of intrathecal baclofen therapy under general anesthesia. ALD, a rare genetic disorder, is associated with a total body increase in long chain fatty acids caused by defective degradation, and includes various nervous system abnormalities, muscular weakness, in addition to adrenal insufficiency. He had contracture of the both legs, and muscular weakness of the left hand, and Mallampati class III, but no respiratory disability...

OBJECT: Despite a history of safety and efficacy, spinal anesthesia is rarely used in lumbar surgery. Application of regional anesthetics is widely preferred for lower-extremity surgery, but general anesthesia is used almost exclusively in spine surgery, despite evidence that spinal anesthesia is as safe and may offer some advantages. METHODS: In this case-controlled study the authors analyzed outcomes obtained in 400 patients in whom either spinal anesthesia or general anesthesia was induced to perform a lumbar decompression...

OBJECTIVE: To compare pharmacokinetics of desflurane, sevoflurane, isoflurane and enflurane in general anesthesia. METHODS: 40 patients scheduled for abdominal hysterectomy under general anesthesia were randomly divided into desflurane(D), sevoflurane(S), isofluane(I) and enflurane(E) groups. After induction of anesthesia and endotracheal intubation, desired fraction (Fd) of desflurane(6%), sevoflurane(2%), isoflurane (1.15%) and enflurane(1.7%) in oxygen and nitrous oxide(1:2) were inhaled in D, S, I and E groups, respectively...

The purpose of the present study is to observe the electromyogram (EGM) manifestations of the lateral pterygoid muscle (LPM) in monkey during mouth opening and closing movements. The lateral pterygoid muscle of five healthy monkeys (macaques) was exposed by operation under general anesthsia and the electropolar needles were placed into the superior and inferior head of LPM respectively. The EMG manifestations of the superior and inferior head of LPM were recorded by O.T.E. Biomedica EMG Recorder during the natural condition and the movements of opening and closing mouth after complete recovery from anesthesia...

A specialized technique developed specifically for ophthalmic surgery has led surgeons at the Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital to perform most private cataract extractions-more than 1,000 per year-with patients under general anesthsia. Because this practice is followed by so few ophthalmic surgeons elsewhere, an evaluation of the relative safety and benefits of local vs. general anesthesia was undertaken. A retrospective study comparing 2,217 consecutive patients operated on under general anesthesia with 561 patients operated on under local analgesia leads us to believe that general anesthesia providess the surgeon with optimum operating conditions...

The treatment of two pregnant thyrotoxic patients with propranolol alone is discussed. One patient had a spontaneous remission during pregnancy wile taking propranolol. In the other patient treatment with propranolol allowed postponement of definitive therapy until after delivery, when the fetus was no longer at risk. There were no complications of therapy in either patient and both infants were normal. The use of propranolol in thyrotoxicosis is discussed and the pertinent literature is reviewed. Regional anesthesia is preferred over general anesthsia in patients taking propranolol...

A surgical procedure for repeated collection of blood from the colic branch of the ileocolic vein was established as an aid for nutritional studies on the colon in swine. With the animal in the dorsal position, a cannula was inserted from the ileal vein into the colic branch with a median incision at the lower part of the abdomen under a general anesthsia. Blood samples were collected intermittently every hour for 7 hours.
