BACKGROUND: Surgical site infiltration and transversus abdominis plane (TAP) blocks are commonly used to improve pain relief after lower abdominal surgery. This randomized, observer-blinded study was designed to compare the analgesic efficacy of TAP blocks with surgical site infiltration in patients undergoing open total abdominal hysterectomy via a Pfannenstiel incision. METHODS: Patients were randomized to receive either bilateral ultrasound-guided TAP blocks using bupivacaine 0...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: This review appraises recent evidence and provides clinical guidance on optimal perioperative fluid therapy. RECENT FINDINGS: Choice of perioperative intravenous fluid continues to be the source of much debate. Not all crystalloids are equivalent, and there is growing evidence that balanced solutions are superior to 0.9% saline in many situations. Recent evidence from the critical care population has highlighted risks associated with synthetic colloids; this and the absence of demonstrable benefit in the surgical population make it difficult to recommend their use in the perioperative period...

BACKGROUND: Although deviations in intraoperative blood pressure are assumed to be associated with postoperative mortality, critical blood pressure thresholds remain undefined. Therefore, the authors estimated the intraoperative thresholds of systolic blood pressure (SBP), mean blood pressure (MAP), and diastolic blood pressure (DBP) associated with increased risk-adjusted 30-day mortality. METHODS: This retrospective cohort study combined intraoperative blood pressure data from six Veterans Affairs medical centers with 30-day outcomes to determine the risk-adjusted associations between intraoperative blood pressure and 30-day mortality...
