Stefan Bushuven, Ronny Langenhan
We report on a 54-year old male with traumatic brain injury, flail chest and floating shoulder undergoing intramedullary stabilization of a midshaft clavicle fracture in beach chair position. Intraoperatively the patient developed instable atrial fibrillation triggered by implantation of intramedullary nail. Secondary this case shows feasibility of cardioversion in latero-lateral electrode-position due to inaccessible standard positions and patient fixation between the operation table and the X-ray apparatus...

BACKGROUND: The beach-chair position (BCP) results in decreases in venous return, cardiac output, and cerebral perfusion pressure. In this randomized, prospective study, we investigated whether applying thigh-high compression stockings affected the maintenance of regional cerebral tissue oxygen saturation (rSO2 ) in the BCP. METHODS: Patients undergoing orthopedic surgery in the BCP under general anesthesia were included and assigned randomly to the control or the compression stocking group...

A 76-year-old male presented for reverse total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA) in the beach chair position. A preoperative interscalene nerve catheter was placed under direct ultrasound-guidance utilizing a posterior in-plane approach. On POD 2, the catheter was removed. Three weeks postoperatively, the patient reported worsening dyspnea with a subsequent chest X-ray demonstrating an elevated right hemidiaphragm. Pulmonary function testing revealed worsening deficit from presurgical values consistent with phrenic nerve palsy...

Background/aim: The localization of the standard posterior portal of shoulder arthroscopy and landmarks mentioned in the literature are unclear. The purpose of this prospective cadaveric study was to determine the localization of the standard posterior portal and its distance to the neural structures. Materials and methods: One fresh frozen and 10 formalin-fixed adult cadaveric shoulders were dissected. In the beach chair position, a 5-mm trocar was placed anteroposteriorly from the superior edge of the subscapularis muscle, superior to the tip of the coracoid process and tangent to the glenoid...

PURPOSE: In morbidly obese patients, the position and ventilation strategy used during pre-oxygenation influence the safe non-hypoxic apnea time and the functional residual capacity (FRC). In awake morbidly obese volunteers, we hypothesized that the FRC would be higher after a five-minute period of positive pressure ventilation compared with spontaneous ventilation at zero inspiratory pressure. METHODS: Using a prospective crossover randomized trial design, obese subjects underwent, in a randomized order, a combination of one of three positions, supine (S), beach chair (BC), and reverse Trendelenburg (RT), and one of two ventilation strategies, spontaneous ventilation at zero inspiratory pressure (ZEEP-SV) or with positive pressure (PP-SV) set to an inspiratory pressure of 8 cmH 2 O, positive end-expiratory pressure of 10 cmH 2 O, and fraction of inspired oxygen of 0...

BACKGROUND: Beach chair positioning for shoulder surgery is associated with measurable cerebral desaturation events (CDEs) in up to 80% of patients. Near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) technology allows real-time measurement of cerebral oxygenation and may minimize the frequency of CDEs. The purpose of this study was to investigate the incidence of CDEs when anesthetists were aware of and blinded to NIRS monitoring and to determine the short-term cognitive effects of surgery in the beach chair position...

Arthroscopic shoulder surgery can be performed in both the beach chair and lateral decubitus positions. The lateral decubitus position allows for excellent exposure to all aspects of the glenohumeral joint and is therefore frequently employed in procedures such as stabilization, in which extensive visualization of the inferior and posterior aspects of the joint is required. Improved visualization is imparted due to applied lateral and axial traction on the operative arm, which increases the glenohumeral joint space...

Arthroscopic shoulder surgery can be performed in both the beach chair and lateral decubitus positions. The beach chair position is a reliable, safe, and effective position to perform nearly all types of shoulder arthroscopic procedures. The advantages of the beach chair position include the ease of setup, limited brachial plexus stress, increased glenohumeral and subacromial visualization, anesthesia flexibility, and the ability to easily convert to an open procedure. This position is most commonly used for rotator cuff repair, subacromial decompression, and superior labrum anterior-to-posterior repair procedures...

Introduction: The nonunion rate has been reported between 0.1% and 15%. There are also several predisposing factors for the onset of complications: general factors connected with the patient and specific factors related to the fracture site. The purpose of our study is to review the etiology of nonunion of the clavicle in its atrophic form and investigate the outcomes of the revision treatment in a single step. Materials and methods: Retrospective study on 71 patients suffering from nonunions due to the following treatments: conservative in 13 patients; plate fixation in 12; closed reduction and fixation with K-wire in 24; open reduction and fixation with K-wire...

BACKGROUND: Interscalene block (ISB) is commonly associated with Horner's syndrome due to spread of local anesthetic to the cervical sympathetic chain. Postganglionic neurons that originate from superior cervical ganglia form the sympathetic innervation of eye. Decrease in sympathetic tone may change intraocular pressure (IOP) and ocular perfusion pressure (OPP). The aim of the study was to investigate whether ISB affects IOP and/or OPP. METHODS: Thirty patients scheduled for ambulatory shoulder surgery under regional anesthesia with a single-shot ISB (15 mL 0...

OBJECTIVE: The beach chair position (BCP) during shoulder arthroscopy is a known risk factor for cerebral ischemia. We retrospectively investigated whether maintaining the arterial blood pressure (ABP) prevented the decrease in the regional cerebral tissue oxygen saturation (rSO2 ). METHODS: We analyzed 20 consecutive patients who underwent elective shoulder surgery in the BCP under general anesthesia. The bilateral rSO2 was monitored continuously throughout the procedure with the help of near-infrared spectroscopy (INVOS 5100 Cerebral Oximeter, Somanetics Corporation, Troy, MI, USA)...

Shoulder arthroscopy has been shown to be the procedure of choice for many diagnostic and therapeutic interventions. Neuropraxia of the great auricular nerve (GAN) is an uncommon complication of shoulder surgery, with the patient in the beach chair position. We report a case of great auricular neuropraxia associated with direct compression by a horseshoe headrest, used in routine positioning for uncomplicated shoulder surgery. In this case, an arthroscopic approach was taken, under regional anesthesia with sedation in the beach chair position...

BACKGROUND: Interscalene brachial plexus block is currently the gold standard for intra- and post-operative pain management for patients undergoing arthroscopic shoulder surgery. However, it is associated with block related complications, of which effect on the phrenic nerve have been of most interest. Side effects caused by general anesthesia, when this is required, are also a concern. We hypothesized that the combination of superficial cervical plexus block, suprascapular nerve block, and infraclavicular brachial plexus block would provide a good alternative to interscalene block and general anesthesia...
