Psoas compartment block (PCB) is a potentially useful but controversial technique for lower limb surgery. We have conducted a systematic review of the efficacy and safety of PCB for anaesthesia and postoperative analgesia for hip and knee surgery. Relevant studies were identified within PubMed,...
Background Pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic (PK/PD) parameters of neuromuscular blocking agents (NMBAs) are generally assumed to be dose-independent. To our knowledge, there are very few clinical reports where the PK/PD parameters of a NMBA were derived separately for each dose group during a...
Background Intraoperative stress may suppress the adaptive immune system. Abolished proinflammatory lymphocyte function is associated with higher risk of infection and postoperative complications. We hypothesized that thoracic epidural anaesthesia (TEA) reduces intraoperative stress and thus...
Background The influence of changes in body position relevant to neuraxial blockade on the location of the spinal cord and related neural structures has not been fully quantified. Our aim was to determine the changes, if any, that occur in the location of the spinal cord tip (equivalent to the...
Background It would be useful to have an open-source electroencephalographic (EEG) index of γ-amino-butyric acid (GABA)-ergic anaesthetic drug effect that is resistant to eye-blink artifact, responds rapidly to changes in EEG pattern, and can be linked to underlying neurophysiological and...
Background Retrobulbar anaesthesia allows eye surgery in awake patients. Severe complications of the blind techniques are reported. Ultrasound-guided needle introduction and direct visualization of the spread of local anaesthetic may improve quality and safety of retrobulbar anaesthesia....
Background Single-lung ventilation (SLV) during thoracic surgery causes important cardiopulmonary disturbances. Absolute cerebral oximetry was used to determine the incidence and magnitude of the decrease in cerebral oxygen saturation ( S ct o 2 ) in patients undergoing SLV during thoracic...
