Total Spinal Anesthesia Failure: Have You Assessed the Sensory Anesthesia in Sacral Dermatomes?
(Anesthesia And Analgesia, 2017-05-01) [Artigo]
Intrathecal local anesthetic maldistribution is a well-known cause of spinal anesthesia failure (SAF). This could potentially result in sensory blockade restricted to the sacral dermatomes. We sought to determine the overall ...
Sevoflurane induces DNA damage whereas isoflurane leads to higher antioxidative status in anesthetized rats
(Biomed Research International, 2015-01-01) [Artigo]
Taking into account that there are controversial antioxidative effects of inhalational anesthetics isoflurane and sevoflurane and absence of comparison of genotoxicity of both anesthetics in animal model, the aim of this ...
Genotoxicity, cytotoxicity and gene expression in patients undergoing elective surgery under isoflurane anaesthesia
(Mutagenesis, 2011-05-01) [Artigo]
There are numerous studies reporting on the effects of inhalation anaesthesia in cells of exposed individuals but not much is known about the ability of isoflurane (ISF) to induce oxidative DNA damage. However, surgery is ...
Comparison of peri-operative core temperature in obese and non-obese patients*
(Anaesthesia, 2012-12-01) [Artigo]
Our aim was to compare peri-operative core temperatures and the incidence of hypothermia in obese and non-obese women with active forced-air warming. Twenty female patients scheduled for abdominal surgery were allocated ...
