Background and Aims: Microlaryngeal surgery is a frequently performed ear, nose, and throat procedure used to diagnose and treat laryngeal disorders. Suspension laryngoscopy causes prolonged stimulation of the deep pressure receptors of the larynx leading to adverse circulatory responses and consequently cardiac complications. In this study, dexmedetomidine infusion was used to assess its effectiveness for attenuation of this hemodynamic stress response. Material and Methods: Sixty patients undergoing elective microlaryngeal surgery randomly received either dexmedetomidine 1 μg/kg over 10 min followed by continuous infusion of 0...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the effect of intravenous (IV) lidocaine infusion on long term postoperative pain intensity for 3 months in patients undergoing spinal fusion surgery. STUDY DESIGN: Prospective randomized, double-blinded study. SETTING: Assiut University Hospital, Assiut, Egypt...

The role of intraoperative intravenous lidocaine infusion has been previously evaluated for pain relief, inflammatory response, and post-operative recovery, particularly in abdominal surgery. The present study is a randomized double-blinded trial in which we evaluated whether IV lidocaine infusion reduces isoflurane requirement, intraoperative remifentanil consumption and time to post-operative recovery in non-laparoscopic renal surgery. Sixty patients scheduled to undergo elective non-laparoscopic renal surgery under general anesthesia were enrolled to receive either systemic lidocaine infusion (group L: bolus 1...

BACKGROUND: Kidney congestion is a common pathophysiologic pathway of acute kidney injury (AKI) in sepsis and heart failure. There is no noninvasive tool to measure kidney intracapsular pressure (KIP) directly. METHODS: We evaluated the correlation of KIP with kidney elasticity measured by ultrasound surface wave elastography (USWE). We directly measured transcatheter KIP in three pigs at baseline and after bolus infusion of normal saline, norepinephrine, vasopressin, dopamine, and fenoldopam; infiltration of 2-L peritoneal dialysis solution in the intra-abdominal space; and venous, arterial, and ureteral clamping...

SETTING: Labor analgesia in a tertiary-care teaching hospital. PATIENTS: Eighty consenting ASA I-II parturients, age>18year, nulliparous, single gestation, cephalic presentation at ≥36 wk. of gestation, in early spontaneous labor (cervical dilatation≤5cm) requesting epidural analgesia...

BACKGROUND: Dexmedetomidine has been reported to have a renal protective effect after adult open heart surgery. The authors hypothesized that intraoperative infusion of dexmedetomidine would attenuate the decrease in renal function after pediatric open heart surgery. METHODS: Twenty-nine pediatric patients (1-6 years) scheduled for atrial or ventricular septal defect repair were randomly assigned to receive either continuous infusion of normal saline (control group, n = 14) or dexmedetomidine (a bolus dose of 0...

BACKGROUND: Anti-platelet and anti-coagulant adjunctive therapies are associated with a clinically significant increased risk of major bleeding. We retrospectively assessed in-hospital major adverse clinical events (MACE) and major bleeding in patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) who received either unfractionated heparin (UFH) or bivalirudin. METHOD: Consecutive patients undergoing PCI for acute coronary syndrome (ACS) at Fremantle Hospital from August 2008 to December 2013 were identified...

To compare the continuous infusion and intermittent bolus injection administration protocols of doxorubicin (Dox) under the same cumulative dose (12 mg/kg), and establish a rat dilated cardiomyopathy model with improved survival, a total of 150 Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats were divided into three groups: a control group, administered with normal saline; a Dox 1 group, administration twice a week at 1 mg/kg; a Dox 2, administration once a week at 2 mg/kg. Mortality rates in the Dox 1 and Dox 2 groups were 22% and 48%, respectively (P<0...

Objective: To investigated the effects of patient controlled intravenous analgesia and ultrasound guided patient-controlled paravertebral block on pulmonary function in patients with multiple fractured ribs. Methods: From May 2015 to March 2016, 60 patients with multiple rib fractures in Ningbo NO.6 Hospital with American Society of Anesthesiologists Ⅱ-Ⅲ underwent internal fixation, including 30 males and 30 females aged from 16 to 70 years(mean age (54.6±15.2) years). All patients were randomly divided into 2 groups ( n =30 each): patient controlled intravenous analgesia(PCIA) group and patient controlled thoracic paravertebral block(PCPB) group...

BACKGROUND: We designed this study to investigate the effect of dexmedetomidine (1 μg/kg) pretreatment on the median effective dose (ED50) of propofol for facilitating successful laryngeal mask airway (LMA) insertion compared to propofol alone. METHODS: Forty patients were randomized to either the control group (n = 21) or the dexmedetomidine group (n = 19). After infusion of normal saline or dexmedetomidine 1 µg/kg over 10 min, 1 % lidocaine 0.5 mg/kg, followed by propofol 2...

BACKGROUND: Magnesium has been proven to have antinociceptive effects in animal and human models of pain. Its effect is primarily based on the regulation of calcium influx into the cell, which is natural physiological calcium antagonism and N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonism. METHODS: One hundred and eight patients undergoing surgery with spinal anesthesia received either 250 mg of intravenous magnesium sulfate followed by an infusion of 500 mg magnesium sulfate (25 mg/mL) at the rate of 20 mL/hour; or the same volume of normal saline (control group) as bolus and infusion...

Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) is an advanced therapy for early gastric neoplasm and requires sedation with adequate analgesia. Lidocaine is a short-acting local anesthetic, and intravenous lidocaine has been shown to have analgesic efficacy in surgical settings. The aim of this study was to assess the effects of intravenous lidocaine on analgesic and sedative requirements for ESD and pain after ESD.Sixty-six patients scheduled for ESD randomly received either intravenous lidocaine as a bolus of 1.5 mg/kg before sedation, followed by continuous infusion at a rate of 2 mg/kg/h during sedation (lidocaine group; n = 33) or the same bolus and infusion volumes of normal saline (control group; n = 33)...

Carvedilol is a non-selective beta-adrenoreceptor antagonist that is also an antagonist at the alpha(1)-adrenoreceptor. This unique pharmacological effect may produce a different toxicodynamic profile compared to other beta-adrenoreceptor antagonists. Only one previous case of carvedilol overdose has been reported. Here, we report massive carvedilol ingestion confirmed by quantitative analysis. The case report deals with an 84-year-old man who chewed a total of 60 (6.25 mg) tablets and rapidly developed symptoms...

Six dogs were studied to determine whether verapamil pretreatment exacerbates the increase in serum potassium levels associated with succinylcholine. Dogs were anesthetized with halothane, 1.26 +/- 0% (mean +/- SEM; end tidal). Arterial blood-gas tensions, blood pressure, heart rate, temperature, and serum potassium levels were measured. Each dog underwent control and experimental studies separated by seven days. In the experimental study, a 0.15 mg/kg bolus of verapamil was followed by a 4.0 micrograms X kg-1 X min-1 continuous infusion of verapamil...

We have investigated the effect of interpleural morphine on postoperative pain and pulmonary function after thoracotomy. At the end of surgery, an interpleural catheter was inserted in 17 patients and, in a double-blind and randomized manner, either a bolus of morphine 2.5 mg interpleurally (i.p.) and normal saline i.v. (group I) or, as a control for systemic absorption, morphine 2.5 mg i.v. and i.p. saline (group II) was injected. After the initial bolus, a continuous infusion of morphine 0.5 mg h-1 i.p. and saline i...
