BACKGROUND: Surfers myelopathy can be a rapidly devastating disease and little is known surrounding the pathophysiology of the condition. Although the classical pattern of illness has been well reported, it has never been observed in a non-surfing setting. METHODS: A 51-year-old demolition worker presented with acute non-traumatic myelopathy. Clinical examination revealed sensory loss to the level of L2. T2-MRI and MRI-DWI revealed a hyperintense signal suggestive of an ischaemic event...

BACKGROUND: The Myosure resectoscope has been in use since 2009. Our unit is the first in Australia to describe the use of the Myosure device in the outpatient setting to resect endometrial polyps. AIM: To compare patient satisfaction and pain scores of pre- and postmenopausal women undergoing outpatient removal of endometrial polyps using the Myosure device. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Public hospital based prospective study. Patients (n=42) who opted to have resection of endometrial polyps under local anaethesia were recruited...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the cardiopulmonary effects of anaesthesia induced and maintained with propofol in acepromazine pre-medicated donkeys. STUDY DESIGN: Prospective experimental study. ANIMALS: Six healthy male donkeys weighing 78-144 kg. METHODS: Donkeys were pre-medicated with intravenous (IV) acepromazine (0.04 mg kg(-1) ). Ten minutes later, anaesthesia was induced with IV propofol (2 mg kg(-1) ) and anaesthesia maintained by continuous IV infusion of the propofol (0...

BACKGROUND: Perioperative shivering is a common problem during anaesthesia. Apart from physical warming many drugs have also been used for prevention of shivering. Ketamine has been used for preventing shivering during anaesthesia in doses of 0.5 to 0.75mg kg(-1), but even these doses causes too much sedation and hallucination. Ondansetron (8 mg) has been recently evaluated for its perioperative antishivering effect in patients under anaethesia. Present study was conducted to evaluate the efficacy and safety of low dose Ketamine (0...

BACKGROUND: In the long run, surgical treatment proves to the most effective measure for the treatment of both morbid adipositas and concomitant morbidity. Patients undergoing bariatric surgical procedures are a challenge to the anaesthesiologist: Obesity-associated morbidity, the potentially difficult airway and intravenous accesses as well as the demand for effective pain and anti-emetic therapy. Interrestingly, only sparse and conflicting data exist about the perioperative anaesthesiological management of these patients...

Tobacco use is the leading preventable agent of death in the world. It is manufactured on a large scale in India and has a huge international market also. Death toll from tobacco use is on the rise. Use of tobacco is also increasing esp. in developing countries, in teenagers & in women, despite government, WHO and intervention by other statutory bodies. Prolonged use of tobacco or its products, as smoke or chew, endows significant risk of developing various diseases. With advances in surgical and anaethesia techniques & prolonged life expectancy, anaesthetist will be faced with management of these patients...

BACKGROUND: Femoral neck fracture is the commonest fracture among the elderly who frequently have co-morbid medical conditions. It commonly follows trivial falls at home. Prosthetic replacement with Austin Moore prothesis is one of the treatment options open to Orthopaedic Surgeons in this age group who need to be mobilised as early as possible to prevent the complications of prolonged immobilization. This study shows our experience with Austin Moore hemiarthroplasty [AMH] as a treatment option for femoral neck fractures over a 10 year period...

The rat is the most frequently used animal in scientific inquiry conducted for the purpose of advancing basic knowledge that may lead to an improvement in the results of treatment. Understanding of the pharmacological properties of inhalation anaesthetics, in combination with monitoring of their concentration in the inspired and end-tidal gas, together provide safe and precise control of the depth of the anaesthesia. However, accurate application of the inhalation method of anaesthesia requires special equipment for the delivery and effective scavenging of inhalation anaesthetics...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Since the beginning of 2001, Doppler-giuded ligation of the hemorrhoidal arteries (DG-HAL) has been used at this clinic in almost all patients with various forms of hemorrhoidal disease. Aim of this study was to ascertain whether this intervention can be done without general anaesthesia, the hemorrhoidal knots regress and this procedure provides advantages over the classical methods of treating hemorrhoids. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Early results of DG-HAL in 248 patients are presented...

BACKGROUND: Epidural block is widely used to manage major abdominal surgery and postoperative analgesia, but its risks and benefits are uncertain. We compared adverse outcomes in high-risk patients managed for major surgery with epidural block or alternative analgesic regimens with general anaesthesia in a multicentre randomised trial. METHODS: 915 patients undergoing major abdominal surgery with one of nine defined comorbid states to identify high-risk status were randomly assigned intraoperative epidural anaesthesia and postoperative epidural analgesia for 72 h with general anaesthesia (site of epidural selected to provide optimum block) or control...

BACKGROUND: Bilateral facet interlocking of the cervical spine is a relatively uncommon type of cervical spinal injury. It is frequently associated with devastating neurological symptoms and signs. Early reduction of the locked facets is thought to be critical in preventing progressive secondary spinal cord injury. Whereas skull tong traction remains our primary option for closed reduction of bilateral locked facets of the cervical spine, it is not always successful, even with heavy traction weights...

The rostral ventrolateral medulla (RVLM) is part of the vasomotor centre which controls the cardiovascular system and may therefore be critical to the genesis of postoperative hypertension. This area is probably a common site of termination of different inputs involved in the baroreflex. It contains at least two classes of neurons exhibiting spontaneous activities and projecting to sympathetic preganglionic neurons located in the intermediolateral cell-column (IML) of the spinal cord. The first class of neurons corresponds to cells with slow axonal conduction velocities (< 0...

OBJECTIVE: Report of 1-8 year follow-up of patients treated by percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) for obstructive atherosclerosis of the infrarenal aorta. DESIGN: Cohort study. MATERIALS: Thirty-eight patients aged 26-81 years (mean 50 years) were submitted to undergo percutaneous transluminal angioplasty of the infrarenal aorta. All patients had symptomatic isolated stenotic lesions of the aorta located below the renal arteries and above the bifurcation...

A series of 1,000 patients has been studied. I. HEMATOMAE: They are nearly continuous during internal saphena stripping but depend on various parameters. 1) Anatomical: a) Varicose veins topography. Perforating veins. Perforating veins of the thigh cause haemorrhage but reactions of venous construction are quite important and precocious not to observe subcutaneous bleedings. More or less "soft" stripping creates a reaction of reflex vasoconstriction. Fore saphenous vein of the thigh Hematomae are more and more numerous and important because the fore saphenous vein is a vein whose wall is thinner, more fragile and almost more superficial...

1. Total renal blood flow and its cortical distribution were measured by the radioactive microsphere technique in conscious rabbits and after anaethesia with pentobarbitone, chloralose-urethane or ether. 2. Pentobarbitone anaesthesia caused a fall of 26% in total renal blood flow, of 26% in superficial cortical flow, and of 24% in deep cortical flow. Sodium excretion rate fell by 33%. 3. Chloralose-urethane anaesthesia caused no change in total or regional renal blood flow, or in sodium excretion. 4. Ether anaesthesia caused an insignificant fall in total renal blood flow, but superficial cortical flow fell by 13% and deep cortical flow rose by 21%...
