Celiac Plexus: A complex network of nerve fibers including sympathetic and parasympathetic efferents and visceral afferents. The celiac plexus is the largest of the autonomic plexuses and is located in the abdomen surrounding the celiac and superior mesenteric arteries.Autonomic Nerve Block: Interruption of sympathetic pathways, by local injection of an anesthetic agent, at any of four levels: peripheral nerve block, sympathetic ganglion block, extradural block, and subarachnoid block.Pain, Intractable: Persistent pain that is refractory to some or all forms of treatment.Nerve Block: Interruption of NEURAL CONDUCTION in peripheral nerves or nerve trunks by the injection of a local anesthetic agent (e.g., LIDOCAINE; PHENOL; BOTULINUM TOXINS) to manage or treat pain.Choroid Plexus: A villous structure of tangled masses of BLOOD VESSELS contained within the third, lateral, and fourth ventricles of the BRAIN. It regulates part of the production and composition of CEREBROSPINAL FLUID.Duodenitis: Inflammation of the DUODENUM section of the small intestine (INTESTINE, SMALL). Erosive duodenitis may cause bleeding in the UPPER GI TRACT and PEPTIC ULCER.Brachial Plexus: The large network of nerve fibers which distributes the innervation of the upper extremity. The brachial plexus extends from the neck into the axilla. In humans, the nerves of the plexus usually originate from the lower cervical and the first thoracic spinal cord segments (C5-C8 and T1), but variations are not uncommon.Endosonography: Ultrasonography of internal organs using an ultrasound transducer sometimes mounted on a fiberoptic endoscope. In endosonography the transducer converts electronic signals into acoustic pulses or continuous waves and acts also as a receiver to detect reflected pulses from within the organ. An audiovisual-electronic interface converts the detected or processed echo signals, which pass through the electronics of the instrument, into a form that the technologist can evaluate. The procedure should not be confused with ENDOSCOPY which employs a special instrument called an endoscope. The "endo-" of endosonography refers to the examination of tissue within hollow organs, with reference to the usual ultrasonography procedure which is performed externally or transcutaneously.Abdominal Pain: Sensation of discomfort, distress, or agony in the abdominal region.Pain Management: A form of therapy that employs a coordinated and interdisciplinary approach for easing the suffering and improving the quality of life of those experiencing pain.Pancreatic Neoplasms: Tumors or cancer of the PANCREAS. Depending on the types of ISLET CELLS present in the tumors, various hormones can be secreted: GLUCAGON from PANCREATIC ALPHA CELLS; INSULIN from PANCREATIC BETA CELLS; and SOMATOSTATIN from the SOMATOSTATIN-SECRETING CELLS. Most are malignant except the insulin-producing tumors (INSULINOMA).Ampulla of Vater: A dilation of the duodenal papilla that is the opening of the juncture of the COMMON BILE DUCT and the MAIN PANCREATIC DUCT, also known as the hepatopancreatic ampulla.Celiac Artery: The arterial trunk that arises from the abdominal aorta and after a short course divides into the left gastric, common hepatic and splenic arteries.Vagus Nerve: The 10th cranial nerve. The vagus is a mixed nerve which contains somatic afferents (from skin in back of the ear and the external auditory meatus), visceral afferents (from the pharynx, larynx, thorax, and abdomen), parasympathetic efferents (to the thorax and abdomen), and efferents to striated muscle (of the larynx and pharynx).Vagus Nerve Stimulation: An adjunctive treatment for PARTIAL EPILEPSY and refractory DEPRESSION that delivers electrical impulses to the brain via the VAGUS NERVE. A battery implanted under the skin supplies the energy.Mesenteric Artery, Superior: A large vessel supplying the whole length of the small intestine except the superior part of the duodenum. It also supplies the cecum and the ascending part of the colon and about half the transverse part of the colon. It arises from the anterior surface of the aorta below the celiac artery at the level of the first lumbar vertebra.Splanchnic Nerves: The major nerves supplying sympathetic innervation to the abdomen. The greater, lesser, and lowest (or smallest) splanchnic nerves are formed by preganglionic fibers from the spinal cord which pass through the paravertebral ganglia and then to the celiac ganglia and plexuses. The lumbar splanchnic nerves carry fibers which pass through the lumbar paravertebral ganglia to the mesenteric and hypogastric ganglia.ColoradoFitness Centers: Facilities having programs intended to promote and maintain a state of physical well-being for optimal performance and health.GeorgiaGeorgia (Republic)Cervical Plexus: A network of nerve fibers originating in the upper four CERVICAL SPINAL CORD segments. The cervical plexus distributes cutaneous nerves to parts of the neck, shoulders, and back of the head. It also distributes motor fibers to muscles of the cervical SPINAL COLUMN, infrahyoid muscles, and the DIAPHRAGM.Lumbosacral Plexus: The lumbar and sacral plexuses taken together. The fibers of the lumbosacral plexus originate in the lumbar and upper sacral spinal cord (L1 to S3) and innervate the lower extremities.Breakthrough Pain: Acute pain that comes on rapidly despite the use of pain medication.Pharmacies: Facilities for the preparation and dispensing of drugs.Anesthesia, Obstetrical: A variety of anesthetic methods such as EPIDURAL ANESTHESIA used to control the pain of childbirth.Anesthesia: A state characterized by loss of feeling or sensation. This depression of nerve function is usually the result of pharmacologic action and is induced to allow performance of surgery or other painful procedures.Anesthesia, General: Procedure in which patients are induced into an unconscious state through use of various medications so that they do not feel pain during surgery.Analgesia: Methods of PAIN relief that may be used with or in place of ANALGESICS.Anesthesiology: A specialty concerned with the study of anesthetics and anesthesia.Anesthesia, Conduction: Injection of an anesthetic into the nerves to inhibit nerve transmission in a specific part of the body.Ambulatory Surgical Procedures: Surgery performed on an outpatient basis.

Effect of caffeine on neonatal splanchnic blood flow. (1/47)

Doppler ultrasound was used to study the effect of the first intravenous dose of caffeine on splanchnic haemodynamics in preterm neonates. Peak systolic velocity in the superior measenteric artery and coeliac axis was significantly reduced for 6 hours after caffeine infusion. The effect of this reduction in blood flow to the neonatal gut is not known.  (+info)

Release of nitric oxide within the coeliac plexus is involved in the organization of a gastroduodenal inhibitory reflex in the rabbit. (2/47)

1. The coeliac plexus can organize a gastroduodenal inhibitory reflex without action potentials. The involvement of the nitric oxide-cGMP pathway in this reflex was investigated in the rabbit on an in vitro preparation of the coeliac plexus connected to the stomach and duodenum. Intraluminal duodenal pressures were measured with water-filled balloons. Gastric distension inhibited duodenal motility, thus characterizing a gastroduodenal inhibitory reflex organized by the coeliac plexus. 2. L-Arginine, superfused at the coeliac plexus level, enhanced this reflex, whereas Nomega-nitro-L-arginine (L-NOARG) or 2-(4-carboxyphenyl)-4,4,5,5 tetramethylimidazoline-1-oxyl-3-oxide (carboxy PTIO) reduced or abolished it. Moreover, diethylamine/nitric oxide complex superfused at the coeliac plexus level inhibited duodenal motility in the absence of gastric distension. 3. The effects of nitric oxide were mediated through the activation of guanylyl cyclase, as 1H-[1,2,4] oxadiazolo [4,3-a] quinoxalin-1-one (ODQ) reduced or abolished the gastroduodenal inhibitory reflex, whereas zaprinast enhanced it. Moreover, 8-bromo-cGMP and cGMP, superfused at the coeliac plexus level, inhibited duodenal motility in the absence of gastric distension. 4. On the other hand, when perfused at the visceral level, L-NOARG, propranolol plus phentolamine, and guanethidine did not affect the reflex. Thus, neither nitric oxide nor noradrenaline could be the transmitters released at the muscular level to induce this reflex. 5. Our study demonstrates that the gastroduodenal inhibitory reflex, which is organized by the coeliac plexus without action potentials, is induced by the release within the plexus of nitric oxide acting on the cGMP pathway. These results provide new insights into the control of digestive motility by the prevertebral ganglia.  (+info)

Efficacy of neurolytic celiac plexus block in varying locations of pancreatic cancer: influence on pain relief. (3/47)

BACKGROUND: Neurolytic celiac plexus block (NCPB) is an effective way of treating severe pain in some patients with pancreatic malignancy. However, there are no studies to date that evaluate the effectiveness of NCPB related to the site of primary pancreas cancer. The aim of the study was to assess the effectiveness of NCPB in pancreatic cancer pain, depending on the location of the pancreatic tumor. METHODS: The prospective study was conducted in 50 consecutive patients diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. The patients were categorized into two different groups depending on tumor localization: group 1: patients with the cancer of the head of the pancreas and group 2: patients with the cancer of the body and tail of the pancreas. The qualitative and quantitative pain analyses were performed before and after NCPB. The patients underwent prognostic celiac plexus block with bupivacaine, followed by neurolysis during fluoroscopic control within the next 24 h. RESULTS: After NCPB, 37 patients (74%) had effective pain relief during the first 3 months or until death. Of the 37 patients who had effective pain relief, 33 (92%) were from group 1 and 4 (29%) were from group 2. In the remaining 13 patients (3 patients from group 1 and 10 patients from group 2), pain relief after NCPB was not satisfactory. Those patients were scheduled for repeated retrocrural neurolysis during computed tomography control. Computed tomography showed massive growth of the tumor around the celiac axis with metastases. After repeated neurolysis, pain relief clinically still was not satisfactory, necessitating additional opioid treatment. CONCLUSION: In this study, unilateral transcrural celiac plexus neurolysis has been shown to provide effective pain relief in 74% of patients with pancreatic cancer pain. Neurolysis was more effective in cases with tumor involving the head of the pancreas. In the cases with advanced tumor proliferation, regardless of the technique used, the analgesic effects of NCPB were not satisfactory.  (+info)

CT-guided celiac plexus block for intractable abdominal pain. (4/47)

Treatment of intractable abdominal pain due to inoperable intraabdominal malignancy is important, and the ineffectiveness of pharmacological agents has led many investigators to recommend chemical neurolysis of the celiac ganglions as a treatment. The author describes the technique and results of celiac plexus neurolysis under CT-guidance with various approach routes, including anterior, posterior and transaortic routes. Twenty-eight patients, ranging in age from 36 to 82 years, have been treated with this procedure. All had inoperable or recurred intraabdominal malignancies and suffered from intractable upper abdominal pain and/or back pain. The author performed the procedure using absolute alcohol by an anterior approach (n=18), posterior approach (n=6) and transaortic approach (n=4). Pain was rated according to a visual analog scale before and after the procedure to gauge treatment success. No major complications occurred. Mild hypotension occurred in five patients (18%) and transient diarrhea in six patients (21%). Twenty-one (75%) of the 28 patients had some relief of pain and 17 of these patients (61%) had good relief of pain after the procedure. The results support that CT-guided celiac plexus block with alcohol is a safe and effective means of pain control in patients with intraabdominal malignancy.  (+info)

Celiac plexus block in cancer pain management. (6/47)

The neurolytic celiac plexus block (NCPB) has been recommended for pain relief in patients with upper abdominal cancer by the WHO Cancer Pain Relief Program. In this article, we review the indications, techniques, and adverse effects of NCPB based on the previous findings in the literature and our own experience of 142 NCPBs during the past 11 years. No well-validated indication criteria for the NCPB have been available from invasive trials or non-invasive pain evaluations. Thus, the procedure has been employed using comprehensive pain assessment. Several modified approaches have been described for NCPB with differences in the target space where the alcohol is injected (precrural and retrocrural) and the insertion route of the needle (posterolateral and transdiscal). We have used the retrocrural transdiscal approach because of its simplicity and safety. The efficacy of the resultant pain relief does not differ among these techniques. Therefore, whether a distinction exists between blocks of the celiac plexus and those of the splanchnic nerves is controversial. The term "peri-aortic nerve block" may better describe the feature of this neurolytic intervention. The noteworthy adverse effects of alcoholic neurolysis include regional pain, hypotension, diarrhea, hypoxemia, and acute alcoholic intoxication. Most of them are transient and controllable. The diarrhea may counteract the morphine-induced constipation. NCPB relieves visceral pain in upper abdominal cancer with no serious adverse effects. We recommend this procedure to improve the quality of life of the patients suffering from abdominal cancer pain.  (+info)

Celiac plexus block: injectate spread and pain relief in patients with regional anatomic distortions. (7/47)

BACKGROUND: The success of the neurolytic celiac plexus block, despite different approaches and methods used, depends on adequate spread of the injectate in the celiac area. This retrospective study was conducted to evaluate the patterns of alcohol spread and pain relief in patients with cancer or therapy-related anatomic distortion of the celiac area. METHODS: From 177 cancer patients who underwent computed tomography (CT)-guided single-needle neurolytic celiac plexus block via an anterior approach, a radiologist, blind to the aim of the study, retrospectively selected 105 patients with abnormal anatomy of the celiac area as judged by CT images obtained before the block. To evaluate CT patterns of neurolytic (mixed with contrast) spread, the celiac area was divided on the frontal plane into four quadrants: upper right and left and lower right and left, as related to the celiac artery. Results were expressed as the number of quadrants into which contrast spread, ie., four, three, two, or one quadrants with contrast. The patterns of contrast spread according to the number of quadrants with anatomic distortion were analyzed. Patient assessment by visual analog scale was reviewed to evaluate the degree of pain relief. Pain relief 30 days after block was considered long-lasting. Pain relief at 30 days after block was analyzed according to the number of quadrants with contrast. RESULTS: Overall, four, three, two, and one quadrants with contrast were observed in 9 (8%), 21 (20%), 49 (47%), and 26 (25%) patients, respectively. An inverse correlation was observed between the number of quadrants with anatomic distortion and the number of quadrants with contrast (P < 0.001). Long-lasting pain relief was noticed in nine of nine patients (100%; 95% confidence interval, 66-100) with contrast in four-quadrants, and in 10 of 21 patients (48%; 95% confidence interval, 26-70) with contrast in 3 quadrants (P < 0.01). None of the 75 patients with contrast in two quadrants or one quadrant experienced long-lasting pain relief. CONCLUSIONS: These findings suggest that, using the single-needle anterior approach, the neurolytic spread in the celiac area is highly hampered by the regional anatomic alterations. It also appears that only a complete (four quadrants) neurolytic spread in the celiac area can guarantee long-lasting analgesia, and that this picture may be obtained in a very limited fraction of patients with regional anatomic alterations.  (+info)

Radical distal pancreatectomy with en bloc resection of the celiac artery, plexus, and ganglions for advanced cancer of the pancreatic body: a preliminary report on perfect pain relief. (8/47)

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to report the effect of radical distal pancreatectomy with en bloc resection of the celiac artery, plexus, and ganglions for locally advanced cancer of the pancreatic body on intractable abdominal and/or back pain and to explore the histopathologic mechanism of this pain. PATIENTS: Five patients with pancreatic body cancer involving the celiac and/or common hepatic artery underwent this radical surgery intended to cure the cancer. DESIGN: A retrospective analysis was performed. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Surgical magnitude, postoperative pain control, postoperative outcome, and histopathologic findings were studied. RESULTS: Arterial reconstruction, gastrointestinal reconstruction, and blood transfusions were unnecessary. The organ deficit was limited to the distal pancreas, spleen and left adrenal gland. There was no postoperative mortality. Postoperative complications occurred in four patients, who were successfully managed with medical treatment. This led to prolonged hospital stays. The intractable preoperative abdominal and/or back pain was completely relieved immediately after surgery in all patients. Perfect pain control has been maintained from surgery to the last follow-up. Histopathologic examination of the surgical specimens revealed cancer invasion of the celiac plexus in all patients. CONCLUSIONS: This operation offers not only disease radicality but also perfect pain relief. The survival benefit has not yet been fully defined.  (+info)

Pancreatic adenocarcinoma is the fourth leading cause of cancer related death in the United States and is usually fatal. Surgery provides the only chance for long-term survival. Pain is a significant, often difficult to control component of survivorship for many who succumb to this disease.

This is the first reported case of acute steroid-induced psychosis caused by EUS-guided CPB. While steroid-induced psychosis after administration of systemic corticosteroids has been extensively reported since the introduction of corticosteroids in the early 1950s, psychosis from regional administration is much more rare.4 Episodes of acute psychosis following epidural, intramuscular, and intraarticular corticosteroid administration have been reported.5-7 To our knowledge, only two cases of acute psychosis following regional CPB have been reported.8 In both of these cases, the patients received an anesthesiologist-administered CPB with triamcinolone via a posterior approach under fluoroscopic guidance. Additionally, both patients also had a known history of steroid-induced psychosis from previous systemic corticosteroid administration..

It surrounds the superior mesenteric artery, accompanies it into the mesentery, and divides into a number of secondary plexuses, which are distributed to all the parts supplied by the artery, viz., pancreatic branches to the pancreas; intestinal branches to the small intestine; and ileocolic, right colic, and middle colic branches, which supply the corresponding parts of the great intestine. The nerves composing this plexus are white in color and firm in texture; in the upper part of the plexus close to the origin of the superior mesenteric artery is the superior mesenteric ganglion.

The aim of the work presented in this thesis is to characterize enteric viscerofugal neurons. This population of neurons have their cell bodies in the gut wall and axons that project to prevertebral ganglia, via mesenteric/colonic nerve trunks. Their connections with sympathetic neurons form inhibitory reflex loops that can control gut motility and secretion. Identified electrophysiological recordings were made from the axons viscerofugal neurons, for the first time. These were accomplished by maintaining isolated preparations of guinea pig distal colon in organ culture. Over 4-6 days, organ culture resulted in a selective loss of extrinsic nerves. This allowed unimpeded recordings of viscerofugal neurons from colonic nerves. Viscerofugal neurons were also identified in fresh preparations using the nicotinic agonist, DMPP. Sites on preparations where focal DMPP-ejections evoked bursts of firing recorded from colonic nerves were strongly associated with viscerofugal nerve cell bodies, revealed by ...

Synonyms for abdominal nerve plexus in Free Thesaurus. Antonyms for abdominal nerve plexus. 3 synonyms for abdominal nerve plexus: coeliac plexus, plexus celiacus, solar plexus. What are synonyms for abdominal nerve plexus?
Supplement The coeliac ganglion pertains to any of the two large clusters of nerve fibers located on the superior portion of the abdominal aorta, close to where the coeliac artery emerges from the aorta. Prevertebral ganglia are closely associated with the major ventral branches of the aorta. Hence, these ganglia are usually found near the origin of celiac artery (as celiac ganglion), and of the superior and inferior mesenteric arteries (as superior and inferior mesenteric ganglia, respectively). They contain neurons with postganglionic axons innervating the stomach, the gallbladder, the liver, the spleen, the small intestine, parts of colon, and the kidney. These ganglia are part of the sympathetic subdivision of the autonomic nervous system. They are regarded as the largest ganglia in the autonomic nervous system. They are thin, crescent-shaped sensory root ganglia of the trigeminal nerve. ...

Before surgery you will have some blood tests to check that your blood is clotting correctly, among other things. You will be admitted to hospital an hour or two before surgery. You should not eat or drink anything for 6 hours before this. This operation is performed frequently by neurosurgeons, and is known as an ulnar neurolysis. It involves making a small incision, or cut, over the inside of the elbow. Using magnification, your surgeon will carefully divide the band of tissue which is constricting the nerve. Sometimes there is significant scar tissue around the nerve, and this is also divided. Removal of a small amount of bone (medial epicondylectomy) and/or repositioning of the nerve itself (ulnar transposition) are rarely required, and usually only in the context of a failed neurolysis procedure or significant elbow deformity.. An ulnar neurolysis typically takes 20-40 minutes, and dissolving sutures are generally used. This procedure is usually under a light general anaesthetic, and the ...

Acute appendicitis is the most common surgical cause of acute abdominal pain in pregnancy, affecting approximately 1 in 800-1500 in pregnancies.5,6 Though the reported incidence of appendicitis per trimester is highly variable in the literature, perforation occurs most commonly in the third trimester, likely secondary to delayed diagnosis and management from anatomic distortion caused by the gravid uterus.1,6 Early appendicitis classically presents with colicky peri-umbilical abdominal pain from visceral irritation by the inflamed appendix. The pain then migrates to the right lower quadrant at McBurneys point and becomes sharp due to peritoneal involvement. Importantly, appendicitis often presents atypically in about 15% of pregnant patients secondary to abdominal organ displacement by the gravid uterus, resulting in pain in the right upper quadrant, which is often misattributed to biliary colic.7 Additionally, as the peritoneum is displaced from the appendix by the growing uterus, the ...
Background: LS is a chronic dermatologic condition. The condition was described at the end of the 19th century. LS incidence is higher in females than in males, affecting mainly the female ano-genital area. Diverse and crippling complications exist, including malignant transformation. Clinical features progress towards severe vulvar anatomic distortion, which results in devastating psychosocial implications. Mainstay treatments are both medical and surgical; recent randomized controlled trials promote the use of topical Calcineurin inhibitors ...
This is the first GWAS of echocardiographic phenotypes in hypertensive blacks and whites. We identified a novel locus, NCAM1, which explained 1.96% of variation in PWT in our discovery cohort. This same variant demonstrated consistent associations in the combined analysis of all 3 hypertensive-ascertained cohorts with other measures of the LV (IVST, LVID, RWT) and mass (LVM/ht2.7).. NCAM1 is an abundant glycoprotein involved in cell-cell and cell-matrix adhesion15 that mediates adhesive interactions between cells in the nervous system and muscle.16 Kimura et al17 demonstrated in pulmonary hypertension-induced RV hypertrophy an increase in regional anatomic hyperinnervation that led to hyperfunctioning of cardiac sympathetic nerves, downregulation of neuronal cellular function, and an induction of fetal gene expression in sympathetic neurons. They suggested that "this phenomenon was explained by rejuvenation of cardiac sympathetic nerves as well as the hypertrophic cardiomyocytes, which also ...

Although we successfully excluded aneurysmal segments immediately in all cases in which the homemade device functioned appropriately, our experience should be qualified. We used a model of AAA in healthy, nonatherosclerotic swine. Even after balloon overstretch injury, the course of the infrarenal aorta remained essentially unchanged. This and more complicated surgical models cannot represent the complex 3D anatomy and tortuosity encountered clinically in degenerative arterial segments in patients with AAA, in whom the expected benefits of detailed soft tissue contrast and 3D representation by MRI may be more dramatic. In particular, safe traversal of tortuous iliac artery segments, one of the procedural challenges of AAA endografting, might be simplified by using rtMRI to visualize device-related anatomic distortion and to guide operator adjustments. Furthermore, we used a simple tubular endograft, although most clinical devices are bifurcated to cover the aorta and both iliac limbs.. Our ...

Interpretation of prevertebral soft tissue swelling is generally thought to be invalid in the presence of an endotracheal tube (ETT). There is however little scientific data to support this. We evaluate the prevertebral soft tissue swelling of 43 traumatized patients that have had an endotracheal tube (ETT) placed in the acute setting. A control group of 92 patients were also evaluated which had been subjected to acute trauma and no ETT. There was a significant increase in soft tissue swelling (p < 0.0001) found in the ETT group at the C2 level compared to the non-tube group. There was no significant difference between the two groups at the C4 and C6 levels. We feel that interpretation of prevertebral swelling in the traumatized patient at the C2 level is invalid in the presence of an ETT, and indeed is significantly increased after intubation despite no injury at this level. However, the interpretation of soft tissue swelling at and below C4 remains a useful tool in the evaluation of an occult ...

A disposable single-use kit for administering a precise dose of radioactive tracer to a subject with an accuracy of at least 99.9% by weight. The kit comprises a syringe, pre-filled with a known quantity of a radioactive tracer as injectate. The back of a small-bore needle is affixed to the syringe front. The front of a removable plastic needle cover incorporates airtight means for creating and maintaining an airlock in the needle front, thereby to prevent any contact between the tracer and the cover and so preclude any loss of tracer upon removal of the cover from the needle. A valve normally seals the syringe back, the valve including actuatable means for enabling a fluid flow into the syringe back, both for pre-filling of the syringe with injectate and for flushing of the injectate from the syringe into the subject.

Figure 4 The multiple branches of the sural nerve course.. He was also still having pain in the region of his previous TTC surgery. Imaging modalities confirmed that the structural integrity of the bone and fusion site were fine, with an arthrodesis of the ankle and subtalar joint appreciated. In the office setting, the patient underwent regional blocks of the superficial peroneal nerve (SPN) and the sural nerve (SN), with subjective improvement in pain of more than 75%. The blocks were performed in the lower 1/3rd of the leg. Due to this improvement, and the chronicity of his pain, neurolytic and neurectomy procedures were decided upon for the SPN and SN. The patient was cleared for surgery by his primary care physician. Once in the operating room, he was placed on the table in the supine position with a bump placed under his right hip. After anesthesia was obtained, the left shoulder was tilted down some in order to better visualize the anterolateral and posterolateral lower leg. An ...
