OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this large, population-based study was to investigate preoperative comorbidities as risk factors of mortality in pediatric liver transplant recipients. METHODS: A total of 2,938 patients who underwent liver transplantation (LT) surgery from 1998 through 2012 in Taiwan were enrolled in this study. Based on the International Classification of Disease, 9th Revision, Clinical Modifi cation (ICD-9-CM) codes, basic information regarding medical comorbidities was extracted from the National Health Insurance Research Database (NHIRD)...

OBJECTIVE: Arthroscopic shoulder surgery (ASS) is often followed by severe pain. Interscalene brachial plexus block (ISB) was used to relieve such pain. The aim of the study was to compare the effect of adding either dexamethasone or ketamine to ISB on time to the fi rst request for analgesia. METHODS: Sixty patients scheduled for ASS were enrolled in this study. Before induction of general anaesthesia, patients were randomly allocated to two groups; in Group D, patients received ISB with bupivacaine 0...

OBJECTIVE: After primary total knee/hip replacement (TKR or THR respectively) a prosthetic joint infection (PJI) could develop. Hypothermia could raise the risk of infection. Heating by forced-air can disrupt laminar airfl ow in the operation room (OR), potentially raising the risk of infection. We aimed to study non-inferiority of an active self-heating blanket (SHB) compared to a forced-air blanket (FAB) in preventing hypothermia. METHODS: A randomized controlled non-inferiority trial (N = 86 patients) was performed comparing a SHB versus a FAB in elective primary TKR/THR patients...

OBJECTIVE: Supraglottic airway devices (SGAs) have advantages in reducing respiration-associated complications. However, limited studies on the influence of head and neck rotation on the risk of air leakage have been conducted. We hypothesize that different head and neck rotation angles will increase the risk of air leakage when using SGAs. METHODS: A prospective, randomized study was conducted with 51 patients in the i-gelTM group and 50 patients in the AuraOnceTM group...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this meta-analysis is to verify the effectiveness of postoperative pain relief by perioperative parecoxib, a selective intravenous cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) inhibitor, for patients receiving laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) surgery. METHODS: Electronic databases were searched for the randomized controlled trials (RCTs) to evaluate the effectiveness of pain relief by parecoxib or placebo for patients receiving LC surgery. The primary outcomes was the pain score evaluation using visual analogue scale (VAS)...

INTRODUCTION: The impact of preoperative glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c) in patients undergoing gastrointestinal and hepatobiliary surgery is unclear as data is limited. METHODS: Patients undergoing gastrointestinal surgery attending pre-assessment screening (PAS) clinics from August to September 2016 at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham (QEHB) were identifi ed. Outcome measure was postoperative complications as defi ned by the Clavien-Dindo classifi cation system...

REVIEW
Chung-Chih Huang, Wei-Zen Sun, Chih-Shung Wong
Chronic post-surgical pain (CPSP) is a chronic pain condition, affecting many people who have undergone surgery. The development of CPSP is complex and the treatment options are limited; therefore, postsurgical pain management is crucial for satisfactory pain relief and prevention of CPSP development. In this review, we analyzed the existing treatment modalities for patients with CPSP. The treatments include opioids, acetaminophen, N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonists, anticonvulsants, and local anesthesia...

Central venous catheterization (CVC) is a common invasive procedure. Although it is a relatively safe procedure, severe complications occurred sometimes. One of the most serious complications is large vessel perforation. A 40-year-old man was send to intensive care unit (ICU) after liver transplantation surgery with massive blood transfusion. Four days later, chest computed tomography (CT) were arranged for unknown leukocytosis and high level of procalcitonin. Chest CT revealed possibility of innominate vein perforation by CVC...

Dexmedetomidine, an α-2 adrenergic receptor agonist, provides analgesia, sedation, anxiolysis, sympatholysis and anesthetic-sparing effect, without inducing significant respiratory depression. Due to these properties, its clinical use is no longer limited to serving as a sedative agent in the intensive care unit. Proper airway management and the avoidance of cardiac and respiratory complications are common goals of everyday anesthesia practice. Ensuring airway safety is pivotal during the anesthesia stages of induction, maintenance and recovery...

BACKGROUND: Critical illness is associated with oxidative stress and insulin resistance. These conditions affect the clinical outcomes in intensive care unit (ICU). The aim of this study was to determine whether intervention with α-lipoic acid (ALA) influences the oxidative stress, insulin resistance, and clinical outcomes in critically ill patients. METHOD: In this randomized double-blind placebo-controlled trial, 80 critically ill patients who were expected to stay at least seven days in the ICU and required enteral feeding were randomly allocated to two equal groups to receive either ALA (900 mg) or placebo daily for 10 days...

OBJECTIVE: Postoperative pneumonia is the third most common postoperative complication. It may result from aspiration of secretions accumulating in the subglottic space during general anesthesia (GA). However, the relationship between endotracheal suctioning (ETS) during extubation from GA emergence and postoperative pneumonia has not been well investigated. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of ETS during extubation in prevention of postoperative pneumonia in ophthalmic surgery under GA in our medical center from 2011 through 2015...
