Intravitreal injection of low-dose gentamicin for the treatment of recurrent or persistent uveitis in horses: Preliminary results.

BMC Vet Res 2019 Jan 16;15(1):29. Epub 2019 Jan 16.

Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, University of Leipzig, Department for Horses, Leipzig, Germany.

Background: Despite appropriate medical therapy, many horses with equine recurrent uveitis continue to suffer from recurrent bouts of inflammation. Surgical intervention via the pars plana vitrectomy or suprachoroidal cyclosporine implant placement may control and/or prevent recurrences, however, these procedures may be contraindicated, unavailable, or declined by an owner. Thus, an effective adjunctive treatment option may help to improve the clinical outcomes in those situations. Read More

Percutaneous Thermal Ablation for Lung Cancer: An Update.

Surg Technol Int 2018 Dec 20;34. Epub 2018 Dec 20.

Department of Diagnostic Imaging, Rhode Island Hospital, Providence, RI.

Lung cancer remains the leading cause of cancer death in the United States, and accounts for more deaths than breast, colon, and prostate cancer combined. Over the past decade, percutaneous thermal ablative therapy (PTA) has become a useful adjunctive therapy in combination with longer-standing methods, or as a standalone treatment. The physiologic basis of thermal ablation is that coagulative necrosis and cell death occur at temperatures above 60°C. Read More

Sedation versus general anesthesia for transcatheter aortic valve replacement.

J Thorac Dis 2018 Nov;10(Suppl 30):S3588-S3594

Department of Anesthesia & Perioperative Medicine, University of Western Ontario, London, ON, Canada.

There is currently significant controversy regarding the best anesthesia management for patients undergoing transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). Some institutions primarily use general anesthesia (GA) but many institutions primarily use moderate sedation. Much of the controversy is due to the limited evidence base available to inform this decision and the strong feelings and pre-conceived notions about the optimal anesthesia technique which exist amongst anesthesiologists, cardiologists, and cardiac surgeons.

Nil per os guidelines: what is changing, what is not, and what should?

Minerva Anestesiol 2018 Dec 30;84(12):1413-1419. Epub 2018 Oct 30.

Departments of General Anesthesiology and Outcomes Research, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, OH, USA.

Preoperative nil per os (NPO) guidelines have been in existence since the recognition of the risk of perioperative aspiration. These guidelines aim at reducing the risk for gastric content aspiration to the lowest possible, to avoid associated morbidity, unplanned hospital and/or an intensive care admission. Thus, such guidelines are not only considered for patients having major surgeries, but more so in those having ambulatory surgery including those performed at non-operating room anesthesia locations.

Use of Fentanyl During Percutaneous Coronary Interventions: Safety and Drawbacks.

Cardiovasc Drugs Ther 2018 Dec;32(6):625-632

Department of Cardiology, Santa Maria della Misericordia Hospital, Viale Tre Martiri 140, 45100, Rovigo, Italy.

Over the last years, fentanyl, a potent synthetic μ receptor-stimulating opioid, has become one of the most used drugs for both procedural analgesia and sedation in patients undergoing coronary angiography (CA) and/or percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). However, few studies have been performed to evaluate the efficacy and the impact of this drug in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) treated with PCI. Most of the previous studies have investigated the self-reported discomfort pain, demonstrating that patients premedicated with fentanyl generally reported a lower pain/discomfort when compared to placebo, benzodiazepines, or local anesthesia at the site of the artery cannulation, without significant variation in the hemodynamic response.

The Effect of Dexmedetomidine on Oral Mucosal Blood Flow and the Absorption of Lidocaine.

Anesth Prog 2018 ;65(3):168-176

Division of Dental Anesthesiology, Department of Oral Surgery, Ohu University School of Dentistry, Fukushima, Japan.

Dexmedetomidine (DEX) is a sedative and analgesic agent that acts via the alpha-2 adrenoreceptor and is associated with reduced anesthetic requirements, as well as attenuated blood pressure and heart rate in response to stressful events. A previous study reported that cat gingival blood flow was controlled via sympathetic alpha-adrenergic fibers involved in vasoconstriction. In the present study, experiment 1 focused on the relationship between the effects of DEX on alpha adrenoreceptors and vasoconstriction in the tissues of the oral cavity and compared the palatal mucosal blood flow (PMBF) in rabbits between general anesthesia with sevoflurane and sedation with DEX.
