The Role of Topical Anesthetics in the Treatment of Pediatric Facial Lacerations.

J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2021 May 23. Epub 2021 May 23.

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, University Hospitals Sussex NHS Foundation Trust, St. Richard's Hospital, Worthing, United Kingdom.

Purpose: Pediatric facial lacerations (PLACS) are a common emergency, often requiring a general anesthetic (GA) or sedation if infiltration of local anesthetic (LA) cannot be tolerated. Topical anesthetics are a well-established and accepted alternative to infiltrations for facial lacerations which can reduce the need for general anesthesia. We report our experience following the introduction of topical 5% cocaine w/v and 1:2,000 adrenaline gel (TCA) in a single center. Read More

Focused ultrasound enhances the anesthetic effects of topical lidocaine in rats.

BMC Anesthesiol 2021 May 21;21(1):158. Epub 2021 May 21.

Department of Radiology, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, 75 Francis Street, 02115, Boston, MA, USA.

Background: High-intensity ultrasound has been used to induce acoustic cavitation in the skin and subsequently enhances skin permeability to deliver hydrophobic topical medications including lidocaine. In contrast, instead of changing skin permeability, pulsed application of low-intensity focused ultrasound (FUS) has shown to non-invasively and temporarily disrupt drug-plasma protein binding, thus has potential to enhance the anesthetic effects of hydrophilic lidocaine hydrochloride through unbinding it from serum/interstitial α1-acid glycoprotein (AAG).

Methods: FUS, operating at fundamental frequency of 500 kHz, was applied pulse-mode (55-ms pulse duration, 4-Hz pulse repetition frequency) at a spatial-peak pulse-average intensity of 5 W/cm. Read More

Efficacy of xenon anesthesia in preventing postoperative cognitive dysfunction after cardiac and major non-cardiac surgeries in elderly patients: a topical review.

Med Gas Res 2021 Jul-Sep;11(3):110-113

Department of Anaesthesiology, Basavatarakam Indo-American Cancer Hospital and Research Institute, Hyderabad, India.

Elderly patients undergoing major cardiac and non-cardiac surgeries have a high propensity (up to 40-60%) of developing postoperative cognitive dysfunction, which are caused by patient's factors, type of surgery, intraoperative and postoperative factors. All these pose a challenge to the clinicians. The noble gas xenon does not undergo metabolism or any kind of biotransformation in the body owing to its inert nature. Read More
