Catheter-based Peripheral Regional Anesthesia After Total Knee Arthroplasty

BACKGROUND Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is a very common procedure, with more than 600.000 being performed annually in the US alone. This number is expected to increase to more than 3 million by 2030. The procedure is associated with intense, early postoperative pain, and half of the patients report moderate ...

Regional Versus General Anesthesia for Promoting Independence After Hip Fracture

Hip fracture is a clinical condition that involves a break in the femur (hip bone) near where it attaches to the pelvis. Hip fractures occur more than 300,000 times each year in the US and over 1.6 million times each year worldwide. Over 90% of hip fractures occur in individuals ...

Catheter-based Peripheral Regional Anesthesia After Orthopedic Surgery to the Foot or Ankle

BACKGROUND Orthopedic surgery has been reported to be moderate to severely painful in approximately 50 % of patients. Peripheral regional anesthesia (PRA) using single injection nerve blocks is highly recommended as part of a multimodal, perioperative, analgesic treatment. Patients who are expected to have postoperative, severe pain exceeding the duration ...

Trajectory of Recovery in the Elderly

Elderly patients undergoing anesthesia and surgery frequently suffer from postoperative cognitive dysfunction (POCD) and postoperative delirium (PD). The cause of these entities is unknown. It is unclear what part anesthetics play in the development of POCD and PD. The investigators hypothesize that elderly patient's cognitive capacities recover more slowly after ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation of the Effectiveness and Tolerance of Tetracosactide Synacthen in the Treatment of Post Dural Puncture Headaches (ESYBRECHE)

The aim of the study is to assess the efficacy and safety of Synacthne versus placebo in the treatment of post-dural puncture syndrome in patients receiving epidural analgesia, spinal analgesia, or combined spinal-epidural analgesia for labour.

The Effects of Anesthesia Type on the Prognosis of Hip Fracture Surgery on Elderly Patients

Hip fracture is a common disease among elderly people,and has a high mortality and morbidity.But,seldom practice can be done to improve this condition.For a long time,whether anesthesia type could influence the prognosis after surgery is controversial.Several studies have confirmed regional anesthesia may be better for patients for its fewer complications.But ...

Phase N/A

COMparison of Portable Fingertip Versus Conventional Pulse OximeteRs Trial

The purpose of this prospective, quantitative study is to compare the agreement between the measured arterial oxygen saturation levels using a portable fingertip versus a conventional bedside pulse oximeter in adult surgical patients, presenting for elective and emergency surgery to Groote Schuur Hospital over a four-week period. Adult surgical patients, ...

Phase N/A

Efficacy of the C8 Nerve Root Block During Interscalene Block for Anesthesia of the Posterior Aspect of the Shoulder

By blocking only the 5th to 7th cervical nerve blocks, conventional interscalene brachial plexus block spares the 8th cervical and 1st thoracic dermatomes which innervate the posterior aspect of the shoulder. To visualize the shoulder joint space during shoulder arthroscopic surgery, the introduction of a posterior portal is essential. However, ...

Comparison Between Desarda and Lichtenstein's Technique for Inguinal Hernia Repair Under Local Anaesthesia

Inguinal hernia is one of the most common treatable surgical conditions. The synthetic prostheses most often used in the inguinal area may in some cases create new clinical problems, such as foreign body sensation in the groin, discomfort, and abdominal wall stiffness, surgical site infections, migration of mesh and may ...

Automated Control of Mechanical Ventilation During General Anaesthesia

The "Automated control of mechanical ventilation during general anesthesia study (AVAS study) is an international investigator-initiated bicentric observational study investigating the application of Smart Vent Control (SVC) during general anesthesia. The main objective of this study is to describe the application of SVC and to assess its safety and efficacy.
