Regional Anesthesia and Breast Cancer Recurrence

Surgery is the primary and most effective treatment of breast cancer, but residual disease in the form of scattered micrometastases and tumor cells are usually unavoidable. Whether minimal residual disease results in clinical metastases is a function of host defense and tumor survival and growth. At least three perioperative factors ...


Use of Sedation and Local Anesthesia in Meatotomy: A Prospective Comparison Study

Background- Meatal stenosis requiring surgery occurs more often in circumcised than in uncircumcised boys, with an estimated rate of 7.3%. At our institute, meatotomy is usually performed under general anesthesia and penile block is routinely added after induction. Recently, several reports have described the performance of meatotomy as an office ...


A Study to Compare the Long-term Outcomes After Two Different Anaesthetics

There is considerable evidence that most general anaesthetics modulate brain development in animal studies. The impact is greater with longer durations of exposure and in younger animals. There is great controversy over whether or not these animal data are relevant to human clinical scenarios. The changes seen in preclinical studies ...


Effect of Combined Use of Naloxone and Tramacet on Postop Analgesia in Elderly Patients Having Joint Replacement Surgery

Patients over 70 years of age, scheduled for joint replacement surgery will be randomized to tramacet/ naloxone plus morphine PCA or to morphine PCA to assess quality of analgesia in the postoperative period. The primary objective is to determine opioid use during combined use of oral tramacet and naloxone infusion ...


Postoperative and Opioid Free Anesthesia

Since the 1960's, intraoperative administration of opioids is considered a keystone of anesthesia as well as hypnotics and muscle relaxants. Synthetic opioids were introduced to achieve hemodynamic stability during anesthesia. They allow an inhibition of the sympathetic system without cardiovascular collapse and histamine release. Since then, anesthesia has changed from ...


Study to Evaluate the Optimal Dose of Remifentanil During MRI of the Heart Under General Anaesthesia

The management of congenital heart disease depends upon accurate imaging of the heart to define anatomical abnormalities. The use of magnetic resonance imaging has grown in response to this need. Young children, however, are unable to cooperate sufficiently to allow the scan to occur; this necessitates the use of general ...


Epidural Anesthesia Within an Enhanced Recovery Pathway in Reducing Pain in Patients Undergoing Gynecologic Surgery

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. Mean postoperative pain score for the first 24 hours post-operatively, (measured by the Numeric Rating Scale [NRS], which rates pain on a 1-10 scale, collected routinely on the post-operative floor) will be compared between the epidural and no-epidural groups. SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: I. Total opioid use measured in ...


Comparing Low-dose Bupivacaine With Epidural Volume Extension to Standard Bupivacaine Dosing for Short Obstetric Procedures

Due to risks to both the mother and fetus, neuraxial anesthesia - spinal, epidural, or combined spinal-epidural (CSE) - is preferred over general anesthesia for all obstetrical procedures. However, one downside to neuraxial anesthesia is the increased time patients have to stay in the post-anesthesia care unit (PACU) due to ...


Anesthesia Depth And Postoperative Delirium Trial 2

In this exploratory grant, the investigators aim to determine whether two different anesthetic depths as measured by an anesthetic depth monitor can be practiced uniformly by a number of anesthesia providers and with safety across a large group of older surgical patients. The investigators will use a randomized control trial ...


Efficacy of the Ultrasound-guided Transversus Abdominis Plane Block in Open Aortic Abdominal Aneurysm Repair Surgery

The open repair of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a painful surgery. Patients suffering from AAA are at high risk of perioperative cardiovascular and pulmonary complications. It has been previously suggested that a bad perioperative pain control could increase the incidence of such complications. Intravenous patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) with morphine ...
