Are changes in the evoked electromyogram during anaesthesia without neuromuscular blocking agents caused by failure of supramaximal nerve stimulation? (1/79)

The evoked electromyogram often decreases during anaesthesia in the absence of neuromuscular block. We have measured the electromyogram of the first dorsal interosseous muscle evoked by train-of-four stimulation of the ulnar nerve in 63 patients undergoing anaesthesia for minor surgery. We used Medicotest P-00-S electrodes, a Datex Relaxograph and a current sink in the stimulating leads in parallel with the current path through the patient. The current sink was used to shunt some of the maximum available output current from the Relaxograph while maintaining the supramaximal stimulus current passing through the patient. After 30 min of anaesthesia, when the muscle response to train-of-four was stable, the ulnar nerve stimulus current was increased by reducing the proportion shunted through the current sink. The electromyographic response did not change during the study in 13 patients. In the remaining 50 patients, the response decreased to 78.4% (SD 27.1%, range 7.5-95.0%) of baseline values over the first 20 min of anaesthesia. In 22 of these patients, the electromyographic response increased from 71.4 (SD 22.6)% to 92.3 (9.5)% of baseline responses when the stimulus current was increased by 12.3 (2.4) mA, while in the remaining 28 patients the response decreased to 83.7 (10.6)% and did not increase with increasing stimulus current. These results suggest that loss of supramaximal stimulation is partly responsible for the observed changes in the evoked electromyogram during anaesthesia.  (+info)

Serum myoglobin and creatine kinase following surgery. (2/79)

Serum myoglobin (by radioimmunoassay) and creatine kinase were measured for up to 7 days in 30 patients following surgical procedures, including total hip replacement and bilateral subcostal abdominal incisions. Serum myoglobin reached a maximum of 1390 micrograms litre-1 (median 345 micrograms litre-1 for major surgery patients) on the first postoperative day but levels were still elevated by day 7 in some patients. Creatine kinase reached a maximum of 1339 i.u. litre-1 at day 2 (median 422 i.u. litre-1 for major surgery patients), generally peaking 1 day after myoglobin in individual patients. These values may have significance when investigating a suspicion of coincident perioperative events such as myocardial infarction or malignant hyperthermia.  (+info)

A pilot randomised controlled trial of medical versus nurse clerking for minor surgery. (3/79)

BACKGROUND: Nurse led clerking is currently practiced in a growing number of UK centres, but there is a paucity of evidence to underpin the safety of this innovation. AIM: To assess the safety of nurse led clerking in paediatric day case and minor surgery. METHODS: Children aged 3 months to 15 years were randomly assigned to clerking by either a nurse or a senior house officer (SHO) (resident). All children were then independently reassessed by a specialist registrar anaesthetist to provide a "gold standard" against which practitioner performance could be judged. RESULTS: In 60 children studied, nurses identified a significantly greater proportion of the detectable abnormalities present in the sample (p = 0.16). This difference is attributable to nurses' greater accuracy in history taking (p = 0.04); no conclusions regarding the comparability of nurses' and SHOs' skills in physical examination can be derived from the current study. CONCLUSION: Evidence attests to the likelihood of nursing having superior skills in history taking to SHOs. Exploration of nursing safety in undertaking physical examination, however, requires the conduct of a large scale equivalence study. Only then can conclusions be drawn as to whether nurse led physical assessment offers children a standard of care equivalent to that which they currently receive from SHOs.  (+info)

Wrist arthroscopy without distraction. A technique to visualise instability of the wrist after a ligamentous tear. (4/79)

We describe a technique for arthroscopy of the wrist which is carried out without traction and with the arm lying horizontally on the operating table. The wrist is not immobilised, which makes it possible to assess the extent of instability after a ligamentous tear. In a prospective study of 30 patients we compared this technique with conventional wrist arthroscopy, performing the new method first followed by conventional arthroscopy. The advantages are that the horizontal position of the arm allows the surgeon to proceed directly from arthroscopic diagnosis to treatment, and that no change of position is required for fluoroscopy. In terms of diagnostic sensitivity, we found our technique matched that of conventional arthroscopy. We had no difficulty in carrying out minor surgical procedures such as debridement and suturing.  (+info)

Effects of minor surgery and endotracheal intubation on postoperative breathing patterns in patients anaesthetized with isoflurane or sevoflurane. (5/79)

We studied the effects of minor surgery and endotracheal intubation on postoperative breathing patterns. We measured breathing patterns and laryngeal resistance during the periods immediately before intubation (preoperative) and immediately after extubation following minor surgery (postoperative) in eight patients anaesthetized with sevoflurane and eight patients anaesthetized with isoflurane, breathing spontaneously through a laryngeal mask airway at a constant end-tidal anaesthetic concentration (1.0 MAC). In both sevoflurane-anaesthetized and isoflurane-anaesthetized patients, expiratory time was reduced and inspiratory and expiratory laryngeal resistance increased after surgery. In sevoflurane-anaesthetized patients, occlusion pressure (P0.1) increased without changes in inspiratory time (T(I)). Occlusion pressure did not change and T(I) was greater in isoflurane-anaesthetized patients after surgery. Minor surgery may have a small but significant influence on breathing and increased laryngeal resistance following endotracheal intubation may modulate these changes. The difference in breathing pattern between sevoflurane and isoflurane may be a result of different responses of the central nervous system to different anaesthetics in the presence of increased laryngeal resistance.  (+info)

Comparison of caudal and intravenous clonidine in the prevention of agitation after sevoflurane in children. (6/79)

BACKGROUND: In children, sevoflurane anaesthesia is associated with postanaesthetic agitation, which is treated mainly with opioids. We compared the effectiveness of epidural and i.v. clonidine in the prevention of this postanaesthetic agitation. METHODS: Eighty children aged 3-8 yr (ASA I-II) received standardized general anaesthesia with inhaled sevoflurane and caudal epidural block with 0.175% bupivacaine 1 ml kg-1 for minor surgery. The children were assigned randomly to four groups: (I) clonidine 1 microgram kg-1 added to caudal bupivacaine; (II) clonidine 3 micrograms kg-1 added to caudal bupivacaine; (III) clonidine 3 micrograms kg-1 i.v. and caudal bupivacaine; and (IV) caudal block with bupivacaine, no clonidine (control). A blinded observer assessed the behaviour of the children during the first postoperative hour. Secondary end-points were the time to fitness for discharge from the postanaesthesia care unit, and haemodynamic and respiratory variables. RESULTS: The incidence of agitation was 22, 0, 5 and 39% in groups I, II, III and IV respectively (P < 0.05 for groups II and III compared with group IV). During the first hour after surgery, patients in groups II and III had significantly lower scores for agitation than group IV patients. Time to fitness for discharge did not differ between the four groups. CONCLUSIONS: Clonidine 3 micrograms kg-1 prevented agitation after sevoflurane anaesthesia, independently of the route of administration. The effect of clonidine appears to be dose-dependent, as an epidural dose of 1 microgram kg-1 failed to reduce it.  (+info)

A single preoperative oral dose of valdecoxib, a new cyclooxygenase-2 specific inhibitor, relieves post-oral surgery or bunionectomy pain. (7/79)

BACKGROUND: The trend toward day-case surgery, with discharge on oral medication, has highlighted the need for effective and safe analgesics that facilitate a rapid recovery and discharge time. This study evaluated the analgesic efficacy, dose dependency, duration of action, and safety of the cyclooxygenase-2 specific inhibitor, valdecoxib, administered before oral or orthopedic surgery. METHODS: Eligible healthy adult patients were scheduled to undergo either extraction of two impacted third molar teeth (n = 284) or bunionectomy surgery (n = 223) with local anesthesia in two randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled studies conducted at three centers in the United States. Patients received a single, preoperatively administered oral dose of placebo or 10 (oral surgery only), 20, 40, or 80 mg valdecoxib. Analgesic efficacy was assessed postoperatively, over a 24-h treatment period, or until the patient required rescue medication. Efficacy measures included time to rescue medication, proportion of patients requiring such rescue, pain intensity, and the Patient's Global Evaluation of Study Medication. RESULTS: In both studies, all doses of valdecoxib produced analgesia with a duration (time to rescue analgesia) and magnitude (Pain Intensity, Patient's Global Evaluation) significantly greater than placebo. A dose-dependent effect was observed up to 40 mg valdecoxib, with an 80-mg dose providing no additional analgesic benefit. In both models, all doses of valdecoxib were well tolerated, with no clinically significant treatment-related gastrointestinal, renal, or platelet-derived adverse events, and no evidence of a dose-related increase in adverse events. CONCLUSIONS: Preoperative orally administered valdecoxib provides well-tolerated and effective analgesia for mild to moderate postoperative pain.  (+info)

Post-operative depression of antibody-dependent lymphocyte cytotoxicity following minor surgery and anaesthesia. (8/79)

Leucocytes taken 1 day post-operatively from patients who had undergone surgery under general anaesthesia for benign breast disease showed a significantly diminished capacity to induce lysis of antibody-coated target cells compared with those taken pre-operatively from the same patients. No significant fall in PHA responsiveness was observed in these leucocytes in the post-operative period. This indicates a high sensitivity of the cell types involved in the antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity reaction to the suppressive effect of surgery and anaesthesia. Plasmas taken post-operatively from these patients were effective in diminishing the capacity of leucocytes from healthy untreated donors to initiate antibody-coated target cell lysis compared with pre-operative plasmas although the plasma cortisol levels in these samples did not differ significantly. Possible mediators of this suppressive effect and its significance are discussed.  (+info)

surgical procedure is included in the payment for the minor surgical procedure and should not be reported separately as an E/M service. However, a significant and separately identifiable E/M service unrelated to the decision to perform the minor surgical procedure mis separately reportable with modifier -25. The E/M service and minor surgical procedure do not require different diagnoses. If a minor surgical procedure is performed on a new patient, the same rules for reporting E/M services apply. The fact that the patient is new to the provider is not sufficient alone to justify reporting an E/M service on the same date of serviceas a minor surgical procedure. NCCI does contain some edits based on these principles, but the Medicare Carriers (A/B MACs processing practitioner service claims) have separate edits. Neither the NCCI nor Carriers (A/B MACs processing practitioner service claims) have all possible edits based on these principles. ...

We in Rident believe it is important to keep up with the modern technology, this is why among all the services we provide for our patients we also added the use of laser. Lasers can be used for various dental indications such as gingivitis, periodontitis, periimplantitis (infections of tissue around implants), minor surgical procedures and other tooth treatment. Our educated doctors in Rident use Waterlase Express laser and a diode laser. These are one of the most modern and most innovative lasers nowadays and provide a fresh access to dental medicine. Simple to use, they give the doctor the ability to work without or with much less anaesthesia, as well as faster recovery and healing. The best results are expected in treatments of gingivitis and periodontitis (as replacement or additional tooth extraction therapy), and the treatment of peri-implantation (cleansing and implantation-dissection). It can also be used for minor surgical procedures, such as frenulectomy, gingivectomy, vestibuloplasty, ...

The Minor Basic Instrument set is utilized by members of the surgical field for the purpose of operations restricted to management of minor problems and injuries that are not considered life-threatening or hazardous. Commonly, these procedures can be performed in a brief period of time - usually less than an hour under some type of local anaesthesia. The surgeries performed do not - under normal circumstances - bring a major hazard to life or function of organs or body parts. Some minor surgical procedures may be performed electively. Some surgeries that children undergo are elected minor surgeries. The recovery period is short, and children resume their usual activities of daily living quickly. However, there are some surgeries that are a little more complicated; nevertheless, they are still not considered major ones. The examples of these are herniorrhaphy, bilateral tubal ligation, and most urological surgical cases. These procedures are impossible to perform without the proper tools - minor ...
Minor surgical procedures and wisdom teeth. Dentists can do a large number of surgical interventions in the mouth. The term Minor oral surgery refers to smaller operations and includes removing wisdom teeth, impacted teeth, and severely broken-down teeth, as well as apicectomies, biopsies and other procedures. Procedures are usually carried out using routine local anaesthetic (injections) although sometimes sedation can be provided if necessary. Procedures requiring general anaesthetic will be done by an oral surgeon in a hospital setting. ...
The procedure is performed while you are lying down in a slightly tilted position, with your head lower than your feet. You will be given a general anaesthetic to relax your muscles and prevent pain during surgery. Next, a small incision is made near the navel. The laparoscope is inserted through this incision and the abdomen is inflated to make the organs easier to view. The laparoscope might also be equipped with devices for taking tissue samples or removing scar tissue. A second incision might also be made at the pubic hairline. This incision provides an opening for instruments needed for completing minor surgical procedures. After surgery, patients generally stay in a recovery room for about one hour. Patients are then taken to an outpatient surgery unit for continued observation. You will be discharged after you receive instructions for your home recovery. In most cases, patients can leave the hospital about four hours after laparoscopy. Rarely a patient will need to stay overnight to aid ...

This study is relevant to the equine practitioners in Ontario as they typically perform field surgeries. Overall it is relevant to the equine industry to compare current equine field anesthetic techniques and promote optimal and safe anesthetic and analgesic practices for horses overall.. Field anesthesia in horses is used to permit minor surgical procedures. Typical anesthetic field injectable techniques includes; pre-medication with an alpha2-agonist followed by ketamine and diazepam intravenously. Under these anesthetic regimes horses may still respond to surgery necessitating additional injectable doses of the anesthetics, which may be difficult to administer quickly by the sole field veterinarian performing the surgery. The ideal anesthetic and analgesic technique for the field situation has not yet been defined to reduce the need for additional injectable doses and maintain safety. Other attempts by the practitioner to provide analgesia and supplement the field anaesthetic regime include ...

Varicose veins, while most often harmless, can be a source of insecurity and embarassment for people who have them. There are many options for patients, which are often individualized to each person. Treatment options include: sclerotherapy, laser surgery, minimally invasive catheter-assisted procedures, minor surgical procedures: vein stripping, etc.
While tooth decay is a potential problem at any age, the risk increases as you grow older. Not only are senior adults more susceptible, decay is often more difficult to treat. Thats because cavities can occur at or below the gum line, often due to gum recession.. If thats the case, we wont be able to fill the cavity in the usual way because the gum tissue is in the way. To make it possible to treat, we may need to perform a minor surgical procedure known as crown lengthening.. As the name implies, the procedure helps expose more of the crown, the tooths visible part, from the surrounding gum tissue. In basic terms, were repositioning the gum tissue away from the biting surface of a tooth to make room for a filling. Its also useful for improving a tooths appearance by making it look longer, or creating room for a crown or other dental restoration.. After applying a local anesthesia, the dentist (or periodontist, a specialist in the gums) creates a tiny flap of gum tissue with a series of ...
The pacemaker system includes the pacemaker itself and wires that connect the pacemaker to the heart. The pacemaker unit is slightly larger than a mans wristwatch and contains a battery and computer circuits (Figure 1). The computer circuits perform the functions of monitoring the patients underlying heart rhythm and delivering an electrical signal to cause the heart to beat at the desired rate. Many pacemakers implanted today also may have rate responsiveness features that allow temporary pacing of the heart at faster rates during periods of exercise. Single-chamber pacemakers have only one wire connected to the heart and dual chamber pacemakers have wires to both the top and bottom chambers of the heart (Figure 2). Your cardiologist will recommend which type of pacemaker is needed. The pacemaker is implanted by a minor surgical procedure performed under local anesthesia. The wires are placed through a blood vessel beneath the collar bone and positioned in the heart under x-ray. The wires are ...

If you notice any of these symptoms, in either you or your female partner, seek medical advice.. How is PID diagnosed?. PID is diagnosed following a pelvic examination by your doctor. A sample of vaginal discharge may also be taken for analysis and in some cases, a laparoscopy may be necessary to confirm the diagnosis a laparoscopy is a minor surgical procedure carried out under anaesthesia during which a small incision is made in the abdomen to enable your doctor to view the internal pelvic structures. PID can be treated with antibiotics, although there is still a risk that there has been permanent damage to the reproductive organs making pregnancy difficult. Who is most at risk of contracting PID?. In theory, any woman can get PID. However the chances of you contracting it increase if:. ...
Diagnosis is considered uncertain until proven by laparoscopy, a minor surgical procedure done under anesthesia. A laparoscopy usually shows the location, size, and extent of the growths. This helps the doctor and patient make better treatment choices.. What Causes Endometriosis?. The cause of endometriosis is unknown. The retrograde menstruation theory (transtubal migration theory) suggests that during menstruation some of the menstrual tissue backs up through the fallopian tubes, implants in the abdomen, and grows. Some experts believe that all women experience some menstrual tissue backup and that an immune system problem or a hormonal problem allows this tissue to grow in the women who develop endometriosis.. Another theory suggests that endometrial tissue is distributed from the uterus to other parts of the body through the lymph system or through the blood system. A genetic theory suggests that it may be carried in the genes in certain families or that some families may have predisposing ...

HPS is a pigmentation disorder similar to that of other forms of albinism but is unique in the association with abnormal bleeding. The skin, hair and eye are lightly pigmented but the degree varies widely. Many patients note that their hair darkens as they grow older. The iris of the eye is often blue in color but may also be hazel. The inside of the eye (retina) also is lightly pigmented and usually has an abnormal formation of the macula which is an area of the retina that we use for the highest visual resolution. As a consequence, visual acuity is usually below normal (but stable) and many patients are legally blind. Nystagmus (dancing of the eyes), sensitivity to light, and crossing of the eyes (strabismus) are common. Refractive errors such as near-sightedness and far-sightedness are often present.. Prolonged bleeding from nosebleeds, menstrual periods, tooth extraction, and minor surgical procedures is experienced by many. Easy bruisability is also common.. The skin is susceptible to sun ...

it is so comforting to have others experience the exact same thing you do and guess what I am a nurse. unlike many i dont have problems w/home monitoring myself or a close nurse friend. but bar the door katie outside of that circle!! absolute 100% once that cuff goes on the readings go from 112/60 at home to spike to 150/100 or higher. and how about this, went for a minor surgical procedure and it got cancelled. my mistake, should have gone to hospital instead of surgi center because they were so inexperienced, it was new facility and from the first step in the place I could tell they were disorganized and the electronic BP readings were so high. they even gave me meds IV to bring it down but ended up not getting procedure.

Orf is a self-limiting disease, which means it will get better on its own without treatment. It usually clears up within three to six weeks. It may be useful to cover the lesion with a sterile (hygienic) dressing and immobilise your finger to help reduce discomfort. Read more about applying plasters and other dressings.. You should see your GP if the lesion isnt healing, you develop a fever (high temperature) or youre in severe pain, as some people also develop a bacterial infection. This may require treatment with antibiotics. In rare cases the lesion may not go away and a minor surgical procedure may be required to remove it.. Although theres some evidence to suggest that using topical imiquimod cream may help to reduce lesions, you should speak to your GP or pharmacist for advice first.. ...
Bone grafting, normally a minor surgical procedure done in the dental office, is used to build up new bone in the area of your jaw that used to hold teeth. A small incision is made in your gum to expose the bone beneath it, and then grafting material is added. Most often, the grafting material is processed bone that serves as a scaffold, around which your body will actually deposit new bone cells. The grafting material will eventually be absorbed by your body and replaced by your own new bone.. The grafting material needed can come from a variety of sources. Sometimes it comes from your own body. Very often, however, it is bone from an animal or human donor that is processed by a laboratory to make it sterile and safe. Grafting material can even be synthetic. It comes in a variety of forms: powder, granules, putty or even a gel that can be injected through a syringe.. ...
Each method of birth control has its own advantages and disadvantages. You can often get a yearlong prescription for birth control pills from your doctor, then set it up with your insurance provider for automatic delivery. This provides an easy yearlong solution that you can easily stop if you decide its time to conceive. However, you will have to remember to take your pill every day. An intra-uterine device, or IUD, goes into your uterus to prevent pregnancy. Its a minor surgical procedure and can last from three to five years, though you can reverse it whenever you want.

Several years ago shortly after I had two teeth extracted I suddenly developed a very severe case of Bacterial Pneumonia. I was a perfectly healthy 45 year old male with no history of any chronic medical conditions. I went to bed feeling perfectly fine and a few hours later woke up with difficulty breathing. Called the ambulance and was taken to the local hospital before being transferred to a major hospital in New York City. My condition became critical and was advised that I would have to undergo a minor surgical procedure. My lung was removed from my chest cavity (taken from between my ribs) and scar tissue was peeled off the lung before it was replaced back into my chest cavity. The surgical scar that resulted spans my entire back. I was advised that my infection was a result of my recent dental work and could have prevented by pre medicating with four 500 mg (2000mg) of Amoxicillin an hour prior to the dental work. Now I pre medicate even when I undergo a routine cleaning. Anything that ...

A frenectomy is a minor surgical procedure that is performed in Dr. Arthur Abdiyevs Ariyana Dental office…A frenulum is a piece of tissue that prevents an organ from moving. There is a frenulum that attaches your upper lip to the gums, while another connects the lower lip to the gums. A frenulum that is too short or thick, will cause problems in speech patterns and tooth misalignment. In infants, a shortened frenulum underneath the tongue will inhibit breastfeeding. When the frenulum disrupts movement, growth, or development, corrective action is necessary to resolve the situation.. A frenectomy can be performed with either a scalpel or laser and takes less than 15 minutes. Using a laser causes very little bleeding and does not require stitches. A laser also results in less postoperative discomfort and a shorter healing time. Young children and infants are put under general anesthesia for the procedure and adults have the procedure performed using local anesthesia. If your child needs a ...
Ganglion cysts typically do not require treatment, since they are not necessarily harmful to an individuals health.If the ganglion cyst is painful, interferes with wrist functioning, grows into an unacceptable appearance, or severely limits an individuals ability to perform every day activities, the physicians at Kayal Orthopaedic Center can perform minor surgical procedures to reduce symptoms or completely eliminate ganglion cysts. In ganglion cyst removal, a doctor will remove the cyst capsule or stalk in order to completely remove the cyst and prevent ganglion cysts from recurring.Even though our surgical procedure is extremely effective for the removal of the ganglion cysts root and hindering its ability to grow back, there is always a small chance that the cyst may eventually return.. ...

Endovenous laser ablation (EVLT) is a non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment that eliminates varicose veins and treats symptoms of venous insufficiency with little or no pain, scarring or downtime. During the EVLT procedure, a thin laser fiber is inserted into the affected vein. Heat is emitted from the laser to close and seal the vein. Complications with EVLT procedures occur infrequently, but may include inflammation of superficial veins, infection and/or blood clot.. Micro phlebectomy (also known as ambulatory phlebectomy) is a minor surgical procedure that is performed in the office by a cardiologist to remove varicose veins using a specialized instrument to extract the vein via small incisions. Customers can expect to return home one hour post-procedure and usually return to normal activity in 1-2 days. This procedure is sometimes combined with EVLT. Complications with micro phlebectomy occur infrequently, but may include bleeding, infection, localized swelling, blood clot and in rare ...

Though Vasectomy is regarded as a relatively minor surgical procedure, occasional complications may arise (as with any operation).. 1. Wound infections may occur or the wound may be slow to heal. Both of these need to be re-checked, ideally by the doctor who did the procedure, in case they require treatment.. 2. Scrotal Haematoma occurs in about 1% of cases. It is caused by some bleeding into the tissues around the testicle and may give rise to pain and swelling. This is commonest during the first 2-3 days, is likely to occur if stipulation regarding rest is not observed and can be troublesome. If any swelling occurs, it is essential that it be checked by the doctor who did the operation. Significant haematomas, in our experience, occur in less than 0.1% of vasectomies.. 3. Epididymitis is a condition in which the epididymis- where sperm go immediately after they leave the testicle - becomes inflamed. This can occur following a vasectomy, but it can also occur in men who have not had a ...
Introduction. Diverting ileostomies are widely used in colorectal surgery to protect low rectal anastomoses, especially in techniques such as low anterior resection and restorative protocolectomy. Although their presence does not reduce the total incidence of anastomotic leakage, it does reduce related morbidity and therefore the need for reoperation as well as the mortality rate of these patients (1).. However, ileostomies are not without their drawbacks as they represent a reduction in the patients quality of life (2) and may present various complications, such as hydroelectrolytic alterations, bowel obstruction, infection of soft parts, incisional hernias, etc. But it is stoma closure that carries the highest rates of morbidity and mortality (3).. We believe that the closure of diverting ileostomies should not be considered a complication-free minor surgical procedure; for this same reason we analyse our experience in a series of patients undergoing closure of diverting loop ileostomies ...

Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF) is a brain protein implicated in learning, memory and other cognitive functions. Changes in cellular brain functions as well as cognitive defects have been observed the days following anaesthesia, even for short-duration anaesthesia with/without surgery. Despites the role of neurotrophic factors in cognition, no data are still available on brain effects after anaesthesia. Purpose: To study the effect of minor surgery under short duration anaesthesia on cognition by investigating BDNF levels in plasma, hippocampus and cortex. METHODS: Male rats received an intra-peritoneal injection of either 120 mg/kg of propofol or intralipids solution or minor surgery was performed under propofol anaesthesia. The animals were euthanized at ZT5 (peak of the circadian profile of brain BDNF in rat) after 3 days and brain homogenates of prefrontal Cortex and Hippocampus were prepared and blood was also collected for plasma. The amount of BDNF was assessed using ELISA (Millipore) on

Surgeons use local anesthesia to numb a specific part of the body during minor procedures. The dose and type of anesthesia will depend on the persons age and weight. The drug prevents the nerves from sending signals to the brain and will wear off after a few hours. Learn more about its uses, types, and risks here.
Is anesthesia necessary? Anesthesia is the removal of sensation or pain through the administration of medications under close monitoring. For all but the most minor procedures, some form of anesthesia is necessary to prevent pain and to minimize patient anxiety. […]
How could this happen?. Behind circumcision and ear tubes, tonsillectomy is the third most common surgical procedure performed on children in the United States. 530,000 tonsillectomies are performed children under the age of 15 each year. Tonsillectomy is not a minor procedure. It involves airway surgery, often in a small child, and often in a child with obstructive sleep apnea. The surgery involves a risk of bleeding into the airway. The published mortality associated with tonsillectomy ranges from 1:12,000 to 1:40,000. Between 1915 and the 1960s, tonsillectomy was the most common surgery in the United States, done largely to treat chronic throat infections. After the 1970s, the incidence of tonsillectomies dropped, as pediatricians realized the procedure had limited success in treating chronic throat infections. The number of tonsillectomies has increased again in the last thirty years, as a treatment for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Currently 90 percent of tonsillectomies are performed to ...
Surgery for ectropion is a relatively minor procedure that takes up to 45 minutes and is usually carried out under local anaesthetic. Its normally performed on an outpatient basis, which means you wont need to stay in hospital overnight.. Various different techniques can be used, depending on the severity of ectropion and its underlying cause.. Following surgery, a pad will be placed over your eye to protect it. This will need to remain in place for about a day. A course of antibiotic and steroid drops or ointment will usually be prescribed to help prevent infection and reduce inflammation. Youll have a follow-up appointment a week or two after your operation. This is to check on the position of your eyelid and sometimes to remove any stitches.. ...
Like all surgery, stacked GAP reconstruction has some risks. Many of the risks associated with stacked GAP reconstruction are the same as the risks for mastectomy. However, there are some risks that are unique to stacked GAP reconstruction. Tissue breakdown: In rare instances, the tissue moved from your upper buttocks to your breast area wont get enough circulation and some of the tissue might die. Doctors call this tissue breakdown necrosis. Some symptoms of tissue necrosis include the skin turning dark blue or black, a cold or cool-to-the-touch feeling in the tissue, and even the eventual development of open wounds. You also may run a fever or feel sick if these symptoms are not addressed immediately. If a small area of necrosis is found, your surgeon can trim away the dead tissue. This is done in the operating room under general anesthesia or occasionally in a minor procedure setting. If most or all of the flap tissue develops necrosis, your doctor may call this a complete flap failure, ...
Years of wearing heavy earrings can leave you with an enlarged and unsightly ear piercing. Or worse, you can develop a completely split ear lobe (see photos). Sometimes, an earring can get caught on some clothing and one quick pull can leave with you a painful, traumatically torn ear lobe.. Repair of an ear lobe is a minor procedure that is done under local anesthesia. It involves trimming away the skin that has healed within the split, and then suturing the two sides back together to give a symmetric and pleasing appearance. We would recommend a period of several months before re-piercing your ear. This procedure is generally not covered by insurance. Ask your doctor at Suburban Ear, Nose, and Throat about repair of a torn ear lobe.. ...
You may have not planned your practice around compliance and risk management, but you know what they say? If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. Compliance programs are new to many private practices. What does a compliance program mean for your practice? The program is meant to be a series of checks and balances to ensure the practice is meeting standards. Why do you I need a compliance program?. A compliance program can prove to anyone that practitioners are making a reasonable attempt to comply with all regulatory requirements and have established the necessary procedures to do so. One reason why you might need a compliance program is to ensure staff applies the appropriate billing guidelines correctly. Medical documentation is important from a financial point of view. If a healthcare provider forgets to write something down in a patients chart, whether it regards to treatment, surgery, or a minor procedure, the facility will not be paid for it. Without documentations there is not proof that ...
Chronic post-surgical pain (CPSP) at the surgery site can occur in up to one out of five patients undergoing surgery - particularly in those with surgery of the chest wall, breast, total joint replacements and iliac crest bone harvest. It can, however, occur after any type of surgery including minor procedures.. This problem and possible management strategies for the non-pain specialist are now reviewed in a paper by my colleagues Saifee Rashiq and Bruce Dick from the University of Alberta, in a paper published in the Canadian Journal of Anaesthesiology.. The consequences of CPSP on the patients is severe with staggering economic implications and powerful negative effects on the quality of life. CPSP also places a a significant burden on chronic pain treatment services.. Increased incidence of CPSP is seen in associated with younger age, obesity and female sex as well as certain psychological characteristics (anxiety, depression, stress, and catastrophizing).. Other risk factors include, ...
Lumps and bumps are common in older animals, but can appear at any age. Motion may be limited depending on the location of a growth. If it continues to grow, elimination gets increasingly harder, particularly in areas such as the throat or limbs. If you discover a lump or bump on your pet that is quickly growing or changing, let us know immediately.. Growths could be benign or cancerous. For your pets safety, we always recommend surgical removal to stop the mass from growing or spreading to other regions of the body.. Hernia repair is a really minor procedure, particularly if addressed early. When a hernia is found, we strongly urge surgical treatment to prevent augmentation and subsequent complications. Whether an enlarged hernia is discovered, your pet requires immediate medical attention to safeguard them from disease, resection of dead tissues, strangulation, and potentially death.. It is not unusual for pets to consume everyday objects that arent digestible. While some items will pass ...

If you read the stories about Merriman carefully, it would appear that the Chargers suggested that he have the ligament surgery after last season. But this is no minor procedure - it requires a six- to seven-month rehab - and the player elected to go with a less serious arthroscopic procedure that was unrelated to the ligaments. When training camp started, though, the knee started acting up.. ...
Endometrial biopsies are a fairly common minor procedure performed in many gyn offices when patients are experiencing heavy painful periods. The technique involves sticking a needle into the uterine lining to obtain a small tissue sample; it can be very painful and often produces inconclusive information. Blind biopsies, via either needle or currette, can very easily completely miss the area in question, rendering an inaccurate outcome. When dealing with fibroids and adenomyosis, biopsies of the lining do not render any information as to the make up of the tumors. The biopsy is strictly giving information about the uterine lining. The procedure is rather like sticking an needle in an orange to try to locate a seed…..probably not successful. If you have fibroids, or adenomyosis, taking a blind biopsy of endometrial tissue does not render a conclusive diagnosis about your disease….. ...

Trigger finger is a painful condition of the hand affecting the tendons. When the finger or thumb is bent towards the palm, the tendon gets stuck and the finger clicks or locks and can affect one or more fingers. The symptoms can include pain, stiffness, clicking and a small lump of tissue at the base of the affected finger or thumb. In one in four people trigger finger will get better without treatment. In serious cases surgery is the only option and involves releasing the affected sheath to allow the tendon to move freely again. This is a relatively minor procedure that is generally used when other treatments have failed.. ...

Postcardiac injury syndrome (PCIS) is a frequent clinical entity developing as a complication of cardiac procedures. Some of these may be only minor procedures, such as the insertion of permanent pacer or defibrillator devices. The purpose of this article is to review and illustrate its common imaging findings. PCIS is expected to occur in approximately 1%-2% of patients after pacer or defibrillator device placement. The mechanism of pericarditis following implantation is unclear, but it may involve a direct irritation of the pericardium by minimally protruding electrodes, low-grade bleeding with hemorrhagic pericarditis, and a late autoimmune or inflammatory response to those insults ...
These extraordinarily exorbitant charges for a minor procedure illustrate the conundrum of runaway private healthcare costs that has publicly infuriated Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi, and inspired the recent and unprecedented rebellion by members of Discovery Health Medical Scheme.. Why is private healthcare so outrageously expensive? The medical aid schemes are usually the scapegoat in the public perception, but it is the system that is deeply flawed. Medical aid scheme equivalents operate successfully in appropriately regulated environments in Western Europe. Addressing the US Congress in 2003, Marcia Angell, former editor of the New England Journal of Medicine and a fervent campaigner for healthcare reform in the USA, said: The underlying problem is that we treat healthcare like a market commodity instead of a social service. Healthcare is targeted not to medical need, but to the ability to pay. Markets are good for many things, but they are not a good way to distribute healthcare.1 ...

Nuclear stress test utilizes nuclear isotope (most commonly Cardiolite) which traces blood flow to the heart. This nuclear tracer in the blood is taken up by heart muscle in proportion to coronary blood flow, i.e., normal uptake if the flow is intact and less uptake if the flow is reduced due to coronary blockage. This blood flow pattern is shown by nuclear camera which scans the small amount of radioactivity emitted by the isotope taken up by heart tissue. Hence the test is primarily designed to detect signs of coronary artery disease. This isotope is well-tolerated by most and is cleared from the body in 24 to 36 hours.. This is carried out in two parts: stress images and resting images. The stress part can be done with treadmill stress test or chemical stress test (most commonly Lexiscan or Persantine) if you cannot physically exercise. At peak exercise or following injection of Lexiscan, Cardiolite is injected and the patient is scanned under the nuclear camera. The resting images are also ...

Ulceration of the lower leg due to chronic venous insufficiency. Failure of the return of venous blood and raised capillary pressure give rise to oedema, eczema, pigmentation, thickening and fibrosis of the skin. These alterations make the skin more liable to break down or fail to repair following minor trauma. The ulcer occurs typically on the medial lower aspect of the calf. Several ulcers may form and coalesce as they increase in size.. ...
Study conducted in compliance with agreed protocols, with the following minor deviation. Due to the volatile nature of the test material, the test duration was reduced from 3 hours, as specified in the Test Guidelines, to 30 minutes as it was considered likely that a longer test duration would result in significant losses of test material from the test system. This exception is considered not to affect the purpose or integrity of the study or the quality of the relevant results. The study report was conclusive, done to a valid guideline and the study was conducted under GLP conditions ...
The problem though is less with the physician than it is with a payment system that penalizes the doctor for spending much time with the patient. There is so little reimbursement for a regular office visit that a primary care physician has to churn through large numbers of patients per day in order to cover the overhead. (It is the reason many physicians are going into concierge practice, where they can spend as much time as they want with a limited panel of patients).. By contrast, a procedure of any sort - biopsy, stress test, endoscopy, cardiac catheterization, minor surgery, major surgery - generates a payment that dwarfs the regular office visit. Is it any surprise that fewer medical students each year opt for primary care as a career? Is it any surprise that there are so many posh freestanding surgical centers and birthing centers and cancer centers and cardiac centers and pain centers? They emerge in Darwinian fashion when we pay well for physicians to do to patients, and pay poorly for ...

Neuroactive steroids seem to be implicated in a variety of neurophysiological and behavioral processes, such as sleep, learning, memory, stress, feeding and aging. Numerous studies have also addressed this implication in various cerebral disorders and diseases. Yet, the correlation and association between steroids in the periphery, e.g. blood, and the central compartments, e.g. cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), have not yet been comprehensively assessed. As the brain is not directly accessible, and the collection of human CSF usually requires invasive procedures, easier accessible compartments, such as blood, have always attracted attention. However, studies in humans are scarce. In the present study we determined estradiol, progesterone and testosterone levels in CSF and serum of 22 males without cerebral disorders or diseases. Samples were taken under conditions corresponding closest to basal conditions with patients expecting only spinal anesthesia and minor surgery. All samples per patient were collected

Purpose: Objective of this study was to determine whether video assisted anesthesia induction reduced pediatric patients stress. Methods: With approval from the local ethics committee and parental informed consent, 75 children undergoing minor surgery were investigated in this prospective observational study. Patients were divided into three groups: group 1 was aged two to three years old, group 2 was aged four to six years old and group 3 was aged from seven to ten years old. The following three characteristics were evaluated: 1) the pulse rate at four points (the ward, the entrance at the operating room, mask _disibledevent= 29), there was a significant difference between control and video assisted group regarding the percentage change in pulse rate based on the childrens ward for all points. Also, regarding to the behavioral score, there was a significant difference between the control group and the video assisted group of all ages. However, there was no significant difference regarding the use of

In cases where the Pterygium is not actively growing on to the cornea, protecting the eyes from ultraviolet light often will stabilise its growth. In many cases, provided it is not threatening vision and it remains stable, this may be all that is required. In cases where the Pterygium is actively growing on to the cornea and threatening to distort the vision, the only effective treatment is surgical removal. Fortunately this is relatively minor surgery which usually is performed under a local anaesthetic.. It is best to have surgery before the Pterygium progresses to the point where it interferes with vision. Your optometrist can assess the Pterygium and refer you to an eye surgeon if it requires removal.. ...
