INTRODUCTION: During caesarean section, the use of a vasopressor is often required to achieve haemodynamic stability of the parturient. Metaraminol is a vasopressor used in this context in some countries. However, the differences between metaraminol and other vasopressors remain unclear. METHODS: A search of the PubMed, Cochrane Library, and Embase databases was performed to identify randomised controlled trials comparing the use of metaraminol with other vasopressors during spinal anaesthesia at caesarean section...

BACKGROUND: Formal reference ranges for rotational thromboelastometry (ROTEM®) in pregnancy have not been obtained in the recommended minimum sample size of 120. This prospective observational study aimed to establish baseline parameters in an Australian population of women undergoing elective caesarean delivery. The secondary aim was to compare these reference ranges with those from prior studies and the manufacturer. METHODS: Women undergoing elective caesarean delivery at term were included if they were at term, with normal body mass index and had no conditions affecting coagulation...

We report the case of a 24-year-old woman with a large hepatic adenoma diagnosed in the third trimester of pregnancy. The adenoma was at risk of rupture. She underwent scheduled preterm cesarean delivery under combined spinal-epidural anesthesia, followed by transarterial embolization on postpartum day six. Definitive resection of the adenoma took place two months postpartum.

INTRODUCTION: This retrospective, matched case-control cohort study describes the incidence, indications, anesthesia techniques and outcomes of pregnancies complicated by surgery in a single tertiary-referral hospital. METHODS: Retrospective review of the hospital records of 171 patients who had non-obstetric surgery in the current pregnancy, between 2001 and 2016. Pregnancy outcomes of these women were firstly compared with all contemporary non-exposed patients (n=35 411), and secondly with 684 non-exposed control patients, matched for age, time of delivery and parity...

BACKGROUND: The study aimed to compare the accuracy of epidural depth estimation of a handheld ultrasound device, with an integrated algorithm that estimates epidural depth (AU; Accuro, Rivanna Medical), to that of a console ultrasound machine (GU; GE LOGICTM S8). METHODS: Women requesting labor epidural analgesia consented to this prospective cohort study. The L2/3, L3/4, and L4/5 interspaces and the respective depths to the epidural space were identified, marked and measured using an AU and GU...

BACKGROUND: Paper-based charts remain the principal means of documenting the vital signs of hospitalised pregnant and postnatal women. However, poor chart design may contribute to both incorrect charting of data and clinical responses. We decided to identify design faults that might have an adverse clinical impact. METHODS: One hundred and twenty obstetric early warning charts and escalation protocols from consultant-led maternity units in the United Kingdom and the Channel Islands were analysed using an objective and systematic approach...

A 70 kg, 34-year-old woman at 29 weeks-of-gestation required intrauterine transfusion for Rh (D) alloimmunization. In the ambulatory treatment clinic, 19 mg of rocuronium was administered intramuscularly in split doses into the fetal buttock. The fetus moved and inadvertent maternal neuromuscular blockade occurred, leading to respiratory distress. The patient was transferred to the operating room where she had poor muscle tone, worsening dyspnea and dysphonia. Sugammadex 100 mg was administered intravenously and complete resolution of neuromuscular blockade was demonstrated using a Neuromuscular Transmission™ monitor...

J E Tang, J B Hyman
Vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) is an adjunctive therapy for medically refractory epilepsy and depression. Vagus nerve stimulation is generally well-tolerated, but cardiac arrhythmias or asystole are rare complications that have been reported. This case report describes an obstetric patient who received epidural analgesia and subsequently experienced two episodes of syncope synchronous with stimulation from her VNS device. These resolved after deactivating the device. This is the first report of a suspected arrhythmia during VNS in the setting of epidural analgesia...

BACKGROUND: Current evidence suggests that there is uncertainty about which videolaryngoscope performs best in obstetric anaesthesia. The aim of this study was to compare C-MAC and King Vision® videolaryngoscopes and direct laryngoscopy for tracheal intubation of patients undergoing caesarean section. METHODS: One hundred and eighty women were randomly assigned. The primary outcome was the time to tracheal intubation. Secondary outcomes were the time to the best laryngeal view, grade of Cormack and Lehane view, overall and first-pass success, intubation difficulty, the number of intubation attempts and optimisation manoeuvres; and complications...

The 2009-12 MBRRACE-UK report highlighted the deaths of two women in whom dural puncture had occurred during insertion of a labour epidural catheter. Despite suffering long-term headaches, neither woman was adequately followed-up after discharge from hospital. Death resulted from a cerebral vein thrombosis in one case and a subdural haematoma in the other. Due to significant variation in the treatment of obstetric post-dural puncture headache, an Obstetric Anaesthetists' Association working group was set up to produce evidence-based guidelines to guide clinicians...

The 2009-12 MBRRACE-UK report highlighted the deaths of two women in whom dural puncture had occurred during insertion of a labour epidural catheter. One woman received an epidural blood patch, the other did not, but both suffered with chronic headaches following discharge from hospital. Neither woman was adequately followed-up. Death resulted from a cerebral vein thrombosis in one case and a subdural haematoma in the other. Surveys of clinical practice in the UK have revealed significant variation in anaesthetic practice in the management of obstetric post-dural puncture headache...

BACKGROUND: The RemiPCA SAFE Network was established to set standards and monitor maternal and neonatal outcomes when using remifentanil for labour analgesia. The aim of this analysis was to describe the development of the network standard and to report maternal and neonatal outcome data, including severe adverse events. METHODS: Data sets of the RemiPCA SAFE Network database from the initial six consecutive years (2010-2015) were retrospectively analysed. The data were analysed on an annual basis and set in context with changes of the network standard, i...

M Mohta, M Dubey, R K Malhotra, A Tyagi
BACKGROUND: Phenylephrine, although considered the vasopressor of choice, can cause reflex bradycardia and a fall in cardiac output. Norepinephrine, due to its direct positive chronotropic and reflex negative chronotropic actions, is expected to overcome this problem. However, limited information about its effective dose for management of post-spinal hypotension, and its potency compared to phenylephrine, is available. METHODS: One hundred consecutive patients who developed post-spinal hypotension were treated with a predetermined dose of either phenylephrine or norepinephrine...

BACKGROUND: The effect of accidental dural puncture during labor epidural analgesia on obstetric outcomes remains unexplored. In this retrospective cohort study, we tested the hypothesis that accidental dural puncture is associated with prolonged second stage of labor. METHODS: Anesthetic and obstetric data from nulliparous parturients who suffered an accidental dural puncture at term labor (n=89) during the years 2006-2012 were compared with randomly selected parturients with uncomplicated epidural analgesia (n=232)...

We report the case of a normotensive 31-year-old parturient who received combined spinal-epidural analgesia for early labor, and who was then found to have an unexpectedly low platelet count (25 000/μL) with elevated liver enzymes, but without alterations in blood pressure.
