OBJECTIVES: Postdural puncture headache (PDPH) may occur 12-72 hours after spinal anesthesia. PDPH causes patient discomfort following spinal anesthesia and therefore it presents a challenging situation for anesthetists. METHODS: This prospective randomized study enrolled 613 patients who were 18 years or older and who had been operated under spinal anesthesia. The spinal anesthesia procedure was performed with the patient in a sitting position through the L3-4, L4-5 interspaces, using 25 and 26 gauge (G) quincke and pencil-point spinal needles...

Hearing loss after spinal anesthesia is one of the rare complications. It has been suggested that low frequent hearing loss develops after the development of endolymphatic hydrops in the cochlea due to CSF escape after dural puncture. Hearing loss after nonotologic surgical procedures is very rare and usually can only be determined by audiometric evaluation. We aimed to present the sudden unilateral hearing loss and healing process in a patient who underwent spinal anesthesia for elective anterior cruciate ligament surgery in this postoperative period...

In some situations, the cause of the supposed neuropathic pain might be related to abnormal tissue recovery such as scar formation due to wound retraction that might create mechanical compression on the nerve tissue. In this report we describe infiltration block with diclofenac sodium and lidocaine through the hypertrophic scar tissue to reduce mechanical stress in 3 patients. The infiltration technique might resolve the tension of the contracted scar tissue by tearing the adhesions and the eliminated mechanical compression would reduce the pressure on nerve tissue and hence neuropathic pain symptoms...

Neurological complications of cardiac surgery is known for almost a century. Brachial plexus injury after coronary artery bypass grafting is not a rare complication, but the frequency of reporting is less because these are temporary and often symptoms requiring treatment. in a few cases peripheral neuropathy findings are permanent and causes of disability. Diagnosis is based on symptoms, imaging and electrophysiological studies and it is important that both treatments for both medical and legal liability. Here in 63-year-old male patient was diagnosed brachial plexus injury lasting neuropathic pain the left upper limb after uneventful coronary artery bypass surgery presented and causes and consequences were discussed with literature...

OBJECTIVES: This study aims to test the validity and reliability of the Turkish form of Pain Coping Inventory (PCI) originally developed by Kraaimaat ve Evers (2003) and where pain coping is conceptualised as the composite of cognitive and behavioral active and passive strategies. METHODS: The sample consisted of a total of 279 participants with various pain complaints where 232 were women (83.2%) and 47 were men (16.8%). Besides the Turkish form of PCI, General Self-Efficacy Scale, Pain Self Efficacy Questionnaire-2, Ways of Coping Inventory and Pain Coping Questionnaire were used to determine criterion and convergent validity of the scale...

OBJECTIVES: In this study, we aimed to adapt the Revised Nonverbal Pain Scale (NVPS-R) into Turkish, and to test reliability and validity of the scale. METHODS: A total of 74 patients who were admitted to eight intensive care units in two hospitals between May 2016 and August 2017 were included in this study. All patients were over 18 years old, mechanically ventilated, and sedated. The data were obtained 1 min before, during and 20 min after the aspiration using the NVPS-R-TR and Critical Care Pain Observation Tool (CPOT)...

OBJECTIVES: Ultrasonography-guided regional anesthesia (UGRA) applications are important in the practice of the anesthesiology and algology in our country as well as in the world. Despite the positive effect on the patient care of the UGRA, there is concern that ultrasound probes may be used repeatedly and assume a vector role in pathogen transport. There is no standard protocol in our country to provide basic hygiene before UGRA techniques, which is a part of the daily practices of anesthesiologists...

Headache has special importance during pregnancy and postpartum period. The health-care professionals and patients report headache management as challenging during pregnancy and lactation period. Cautions are recommended in preganancy and lactation due to maternal and fetal/newborn risks. Most headaches in the first trimester are due primary headaches. Nevertheless, the incidence of secondary headaches increase in the last trimester and post-partum period. Red flags prompt early evaluation in a patient with headache...

Fahr disease is an idiopathic disorder characterized with deposition of calcium and a few other minerals in basal ganglia, cerebellum and subcortical brain area. A 51 years old female with the complaints of pain, numbness, tingling and weakness in both upper extremities for six months was referred to our electromyography laboratory with a suspicion of carpal tunnel syndrome. She got the diagnosis of Fahr disease upon the investigations for the convulsions that she experienced ten years ago. Beside, she had a generalized anxiety disoder...

Photopsia, fortification spectra, and the slow propagation of a scintillating scotoma across the visual field are typical diagnostic features of the visual aura of migraine. In the vast majority of cases, the diagnosis can be made without the need for further investigations. Herein, we report three consecutive cases with an astrocytoma and discuss clinical features of migraine-like visual aura.

Tardive dyskinesia and tardive dystonia are caused by dopamine receptor blocking agents, mostly antipsychotics and sometimes antidepressants or calcium channel blockers. Duloxetine is a serotonin-noradrenaline reuptake inhibitor used in the treatment of diabetic neuropathic pain and fibromyalgia, as well as major depression. In this case, we aimed to discuss the tardive dyskinesia-like appearance of a patient using duloxetine due to fibromyalgia.

OBJECTIVES: Comorbidity of migraine and mood disorders has long been recognized. Most of the studies have focused on the relationship between migraine and major depression with only few studies suggesting a special association between migraine and bipolar spectrum disorders. We aimed to evaluate the prevalence of bipolar disorder in migraine patients in a specialized headache outpatient clinic. METHODS: The sample consisted of 78 consecutive patients with migraine headache presenting to the specialized headache outpatient clinic in a Medical Faculty...

OBJECTIVES: We aimed to retrospectively investigate the efficacy of ultrasound guided rectus sheath block (RSB) method in our study. METHODS: We scanned 235 patient files operated for abdominal pathology. Patients meeting the criteria were evaluated for intra-operative rectus sheath block and two different groups were formed. In these two groups of patients visual analogue scale (VAS) values recorded from the postoperative pain follow-up form and analgesic delivery (DEL) and analgesic demand (DEM) values recorded from patient controlled analgesia (PCA) device were compared...

OBJECTIVES: Trigeminal neuralgia (TN) has been effectively treated by radiofrequency thermocoagulation (RFT) of the gasserian ganglion. Recently, pulsed radiofrequency (PRF) is becoming an alternative therapy for patients with trigeminal neuralgia. It is unclear whether the combination of RFT with PRF may decrease post-operative complications while maintaining longterm pain relief. METHODS: Twelve patients with idiopathic TN who had undergone combined RFT and PRF of the gasserian ganglion were evaluated...

OBJECTIVES: Diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN) is the most common and troublesome complication of diabetes leading to great morbidity and resulting in a huge economic burden for diabetes care. Over half of people with diabetes develop neuropathy. Also, DPN is a major cause of reduced quality of life due to pain, sensory loss, gait instability, fall-related injury, and foot ulceration and amputation. The aim of this study was evaluating the effects of lifestyle interventions on diabetic neuropathy severity in diabetes type 2 outpatients...
