Development of surgical and anaesthetic care globally has been consistently reported as being inadequate. The Lancet Commission on Global Surgery highlights the need for action to address this deficit. One such action to improve global surgical safety is the introduction of the WHO Surgical Checklist to Operating Rooms (OR) around the world. The checklist has a growing body of evidence supporting its ability to assist in the delivery of safe anaesthesia and surgical care. Here we report the introduction of the Checklist to a major Ethiopian referral hospital and low-resource setting and highlight the success and challenges of its implementation over a one year period...

Application of constricting objects over penis for auto-erotic purpose can lead to dangerous results. A variety of metallic and non-metallic objects are used. The removal of these objects is a great challenge. We report a case of a young man who placed a hard metallic ring around his penis for sexual pleasure. A 22-year old man presented in emergency department with complain of painful swelling of his penis since 4 hours. Physical examination revealed part of penis distal to ring as congested and markedly tender with decreased sensation...

An estimated 1 in 1,000 local anaesthetic injections in the maxilla or the mandible lead to unwanted effects on the ipsilateral eye. We have seen a case with diplopia and lateral rectus palsy following bimaxillary anaesthesia. A systematic literature review of reports on this type of complication resulted in a total of 144 documented cases published between 1936 and 2016. The most frequently reported symptoms included diplopia (72%), partial or full ophthalmoplegia (26%), ptosis (22%), mydriasis (18%), amaurosis (13%) and orbital pain (12%)...

BACKGROUND: Abnormally invasive placenta describes a spectrum of disorders resulting in pathological placental implantation. It is associated with the potential for severe maternal haemorrhage and poor fetal outcome. Increasing numbers of women are at risk owing to the rising incidence of uterine surgery and increasing maternal age. We report data over a five-year period describing anaesthetic management of cases of abnormally invasive placenta in a UK tertiary-referral maternity unit and assess how management has developed...

Bispectral index is an accepted depth of anaesthesia monitor for guiding intraoperative hypnotic agent administration. Frontalis EMG displayed on BIS monitor may increase due to twitching of frontalis muscle. EMG increases are also known to cause artefactual increases in BIS values. We report a case of artefactual increase of EMG and subsequently BIS values, due to electrical artefact from cranial nerve stimulator being used to identify the facial nerve. An explanation of the effect of stimulator signal on BIS EMG and BIS values has been provided...

C Dondé, L Peter-Derex, F Pitance, E Cotte, P-M Gonnaud, M Saoud
We reported a case of acute restless arms syndrome occurring after colorectal surgery under general anaesthesia. This case was also compared with other cases of restless legs/arms syndromes occurring in a perioperative context through a literature review. As the restless legs syndrome, the restless arms syndrome can be exacerbated by perioperative procedures and improved with pramipexole from the first day of treatment. This case reinforces the idea that the restless arms syndrome seems to be subsumed along with the restless legs syndrome, and is a further argument to use the diagnosis term "restless limb syndrome" for the restlessness of any limb with clinical features similar to the restless legs syndrome...

INTRODUCTION: Patellar dislocation is an emergency. Vertical patellar dislocation is rare, often seen in adolescents and mostly due to sports injuries or high-velocity trauma. Few cases have been reported in the literature. Closed or open reduction under general anesthesia is often needed. We report a case of vertical locked patellar dislocation in a 26-year-old male, which was reduced by a simple closed method under spinal anaesthesia. A literature review regarding the various methods of treatment is also discussed...

Pregnancies complicated by congenital or acquired heart diseases are at high risk of maternal, obstetrical and neonatal poor outcomes. During the period 2000-2014, 197 pregnancies occurring in 147 women with heart disease were managed in our institution. A maternal cardiac event complicated 13 pregnancies. Obstetrical and neonatal complications occurred respectively in 35.0% (95% CI [28.3-41.7]) and 37.0% (95% CI [30.3-43.7]) of pregnancies. All complications were more frequent amongst cardiomyopathies or obstructive and conotruncal lesions, whereas left-to-right shunts were less prone to present with complications...

REVIEW
Pinar Kendigelen
Cases of tracheobronchial foreign body aspiration are frequently encountered emergency cases of childhood; and, delays in its recognition and treatment do result in serious morbidity and mortality. Diagnosis mainly relies on taking history which should indicate what the foreign body is, when it has been aspirated and where it is located. Belated consultation can cause misdiagnosis with the mixing of the symptoms and data with those of other pathologies common to childhood and further delays in the correct diagnosis...

INTRODUCTION: Disengagement of polyethylene insert used in total knee arthroplasty is a rare but serious complication. Still rarer is disengagement because of failure of tibial insert locking mechanism. We report a previously unpublished complication of polyethylene insert locking mechanism failure in a 10-months-old posterior stabilized total knee arthroplasty in a 70-year-old woman with osteoarthritis for whom Attune (Depuy) knee implant was used. CASE PRESENTATION: A 70-year-old female underwent (Attune, Depuy) primary bilateral posterior stabilised total knee arthroplasty in a private hospital...

The case of a 17-year-old female with a benign osteoblastoma in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is reported. The patient had a 2.5-year history of reduced mouth opening accompanied by tenderness and swelling in the left TMJ. Initial treatment included stabilization of the occlusion with a splint, jaw exercises, and analgesics. At first the patient's symptoms decreased, but they then increased 18 months later, prompting a cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) evaluation of the joint. The radiographic findings showed a somewhat ill-defined, radiolucent, expansile lesion containing small scattered calcifications located in the temporal articular tubercle...
