The Association of Paediatric Anaesthetists of Great Britain and Ireland (APAGBI) Guidelines Working Group on Thromboprophylaxis in Children has reviewed the literature and where possible provided advice on the care of children in the perioperative period. Areas reviewed include the incidence of perioperative venous thromboembolism (VTE), risk factors, evidence for mechanical and chemical prophylaxis, and complications. Safe practice of regional anesthesia with anticoagulant prophylaxis is detailed. In summary, there are few areas of strong evidence...

BACKGROUND: Endobronchial ultrasonography has proven to be highly sensitive and specific in the diagnoses of patients with mediastinal and hilar adenopathy. Many of these patients are on a combination of clopidogrel (a compound that inhibits adenosine diphosphate-induced platelet aggregation) and aspirin due to neurological and/or cardiac-related comorbidities, and stopping anticoagulation may place these patients at high risk for potential complications. Our group has previously showed that thoracentesis with an 8-french catheter is safe in patients receiving clopidogrel and aspirin with low risk of complications...

INTRODUCTION: Acute pulmonary embolism is the third leading cause of cardiovascular death. Management options include anticoagulation with or without thrombolysis. Concurrent persistent hypoxemia should be a clue to the existence of an intracardiac shunt. CASE PRESENTATION: A 46-year-old man experienced acute hypoxemic respiratory failure requiring mechanical ventilation after anesthesia induction for elective hip arthroplasty. He was found to have submassive bilateral pulmonary emboli with acute right ventricular dysfunction and a coexisting patent foramen ovale with right-to-left shunt...

OBJECTIVE: Percutaneous endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) can be performed with general anesthesia (GA) or local anesthesia (LA). Our goal was to assess perioperative outcomes comparing anesthesia type in percutaneous EVAR. METHODS: The Vascular Quality Initiative database was queried for all exclusively percutaneous EVAR procedures. Univariable analysis was used to compare which patients were offered LA. Multivariable analysis was used to determine the independent effect of anesthesia type...

Introduction: Wrong site peripheral nerve blocks are included in the National Quality Forum and Joint Commission's category of "never event." Multiple attempts have been made by various groups in an effort to eliminate these events. Prior attempts to eliminate these never events include the Regional Block Preprocedural Checklist provided by the American Society of Regional Anesthesia (ASRA) taskforce. Following a series of errors involving anticoagulation prior to regional anesthesia, our department saw a need for a more comprehensive checklist...

RATIONALE: Although an inferior vena cave (IVC) filter is placed to prevent fatal pulmonary embolism (PE), several complications associated with an IVC filter have been reported. We describe a case with symptomatic PE, of which the origin was an occlusive IVC thrombus that developed from the placement of an IVC filer after a laparoscopy-assisted total gastrectomy (LATG). PATIENT CONCERNS: A 71-year-old man underwent LATG under general anesthesia alone. He had an IVC filter implanted 13 years ago...

RATIONALE: Although lower-extremity surgeries are mainly performed under general or central neuraxial anesthesia, ultrasound-guided peripheral nerve block (PNB) can be a good alternative, especially for patients who require continuous anticoagulation treatment and present with poor cardiovascular conditions. PATIENTS CONCERNS: The patient required continuous anticoagulation treatment due to the high risk of thromboembolism and poor cardiovascular conditions. DIAGNOSES: The patient required lower-extremity amputation due to atherosclerotic and thromboembolic obstruction...

Background: Early surgical intervention for hip fractures in the elderly has proven efficacious. However, surgical delays commonly occur in this patient population due to comorbid conditions that put these patients at a high risk for hypotension-related complications of general or neuraxial anesthesia or anticoagulants that delay the safe use of neuraxial anesthesia. Questions/Purposes: The questions/purposes of this study are (1) to investigate if a fascia iliaca block in conjunction with light to moderate sedation could provide adequate analgesia throughout open surgery for intertrochanteric hip fractures (AO/OTA 31-1) without requiring conversion to general anesthesia with airway support and (2) to assess its perioperative complication profile...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Surgical reconstruction following the removal of large malignant auricular lesions is challenging. While many options for defect closure have been described, in the elderly population usually affected flap surgery, long anesthesia times, patient compliance, and anticoagulant therapy pose additional risks. An alternative quick, simple, and effective method of defect closure is therefore highly desirable. The objective of the present study was to assess the aesthetic outcome, healing process, complications, and recurrence rates associated with unmeshed split-thickness skin grafts (STSGs) used for covering large auricular skin defects following cartilage-sparing skin cancer removal...

OBJECTIVE: We present a case report of a patient who developed an epidural hematoma following an interlaminar epidural steroid injection with no risk factors aside from old age and aspirin use for secondary prevention. CASE REPORT: A 79-year-old man developed an epidural hematoma requiring surgical treatment following an uncomplicated interlaminar epidural steroid injection performed for neurogenic claudication. In the periprocedural period, he continued aspirin for secondary prophylaxis following a myocardial infarction...

A 73-year-old male (height, 156 cm; body weight, 51 kg), without a history of cardiovascular disease or thromboembolic events, was scheduled for transurethral resection of the prostate under spinal anesthesia. Spinal anesthesia was administered with hyperbaric bupivacaine, resulting in an upper anesthetic level of T6. Before surgery, compression stockings were applied to both lower limbs, and the patient was placed in the lithotomy position. Approximately 15 min later, he complained of intolerable chest tightness, followed by tachycardia (heart rate, 110 beats/min) and desaturation (oxygen saturation [SaO2 ], 90%)...

The objective of this study is to describe the anesthetic management of a parturient with hemolysis, elevated liver enzyme levels, and low platelet (HELLP) syndrome and renal insufficiency. A 28-year-old female patient, gestational age of 35 weeks, with hypertensive crisis (blood pressure 190/110 mmHg), was admitted for an emergency cesarean section after diagnosis of HELLP syndrome and renal insufficiency. We performed total intravenous general anesthesia with rapid sequence induction. During the surgical procedure, reduced urine output and coagulopathy were detected...

The majority of patients who suffer acute ischemic stroke (AIS) from large vessel occlusion are at a significant risk for disability or death. Because patients on veno-arterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VA ECMO) are therapeutically anticoagulated, intravenous recombinant tissue plasminogen activator is contraindicated. For AIS management, these patients must undergo emergent intra-arterial therapy. Presented is a patient on VA ECMO who subsequently suffered a large vessel embolic stroke requiring emergent surgical intervention...

The American Society of Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine (ASRA) 2012 survey of meeting attendees showed that existing ASRA anticoagulation guidelines for regional anesthesia were insufficient for their needs. Those surveyed agreed that procedure-specific and patient-specific factors required separate guidelines for pain and spine procedures. In response, a guidelines committee was formed. After preliminary review of published complications reports and studies, the committee stratified interventional spine and pain procedures according to potential bleeding risk: low-, intermediate-, and high-risk procedures...

INTRODUCTION: Isolated renal arterial perforation is a rare consequence of blunt abdominal trauma. Meticulous surgical control of retroperitoneal active bleeding is difficult due to oozing of soft connective tissue, the deep position of operative field, and the presence of friable vascular tissue. Therefore, endovascular treatment is often preferred. PRESENTATION OF CASE: An 83-year-old man was transferred to our trauma center due to retroperitoneal active bleeding after a car accident, in which his right upper abdomen struck the steering wheel...

PURPOSE: Fibrin sealants are used for hemostasis during surgery. Commercially available fibrin sealants are made of materials of human or animal origin. We developed a novel recombinant fibrin sealant patch (KTF-374) that has thin and flexible properties. This study evaluated the hemostatic efficacy of KTF-374 for various patterns of bleeding in rabbits, as compared with that of the existing fibrin-coated collagen fleece (FCCF). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Test hemostats used were KTF-374 and FCCF...

REVIEW
P Merloz
Proximal femoral fracture in elderly subjects is a major event that is life-threatening in the medium-to-long term. Advanced age, male gender and number of comorbidities largely account for high mortality and require geriatric expertise. Protein-energy malnutrition and bone demineralization increase mortality. Mortality can, on the other hand, be reduced by acting on two variables accessible to medical intervention: daily activities and nutritional status. Functional and neurocognitive assessment allow the risk of dependency to be evaluated, and global geriatric work-up can prevent sudden breakdown of homeostasis...

Background: Blood loss during total knee arthroplasty (TKA) remains a concern, as many patients require blood transfusions, which increase risks of allergic reactions, disease transmission, and thromboembolisms. The purpose was to determine factors associated with blood loss and need for transfusion in patients receiving routine TKA. Methods: The authors prospectively analyzed 150 consecutive uncemented TKAs for age, gender, body mass index (BMI), anticoagulant medication, type of anesthesia, tranexamic acid (TXA) administration, tourniquet inflation, drain placement, pre- and post-operative Haemoglobin (Hb) level (g/dL), and whether transfusion was necessary...
