Successful use of sugammadex for caesarean section in a patient with myasthenia gravis.

Braz J Anesthesiol 2017 Mar - Apr;67(2):221-222. Epub 2014 Nov 22.

Yuzuncu Yil University, Faculty of Medicine, Department of Anaesthesiology and Reanimation, Van, Turkey.

Myasthenia gravis is an autoimmune disorder that is characterized by muscle weakness that fluctuates, worsening with exertion, and improving with rest. Diagnosis of myasthenia gravis is made following clinical and physical examination and is confirmed by serum immunoassays to measure autoantibody levels. Myasthenia gravis especially when associated with pregnancy is a high-risk disease, and its course is unpredictable. Read More

Perianesthetic refractory anaphylactic shock with cefuroxime in a patient with history of penicillin allergy on multiple antihypertensive medications.

Braz J Anesthesiol 2017 Mar - Apr;67(2):217-220. Epub 2014 Oct 27.

Tata Main Hospital, Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care, Jamshedpur, India.

We report a case of perianesthetic refractory anaphylactic shock with cefuroxime in a patient with history of penicillin allergy on regular therapy with atenolol, losartan, prazosin and nicardipine. Severe anaphylactic shock was only transiently responsive to 10mL of (1:10,000) epinephrine and needed norepinephrine and dopamine infusion. Supportive therapy with vasopressors and inotropes along with mechanical ventilation for the next 24hours resulted in complete recovery. Read More

Paratracheal cyst rupture: a differential diagnosis for tracheal rupture.

Braz J Anesthesiol 2017 Mar - Apr;67(2):214-216. Epub 2014 Oct 28.

Centro Hospitalar Baixo Vouga, Departamento de Anestesiologia, Aveiro, Portugal.

Tracheobronchial rupture is a rare but potentially life-threatening complication commonly caused by neck and chest trauma. Iatrogenic tracheobronchial rupture can be caused by intubation, tracheostomy, bronchoscopy but also linked to pre-existing primary diseases. Paratracheal air cysts, infrequently described in literature, seem to be associated with obstructive lung disease and weaknesses in right posterior lateral wall of the trachea. Read More

Universidad de Barcelona, Hospital Clínic, Departamento de Anestesiología, Barcelona, Spain. Electronic address:

Background And Objectives: Dural arteriovenous fistulas are anomalous shunts between dural arterial and venous channels whose nidus is located between the dural leaflets. For those circumstances when invasive treatment is mandatory, endovascular techniques have grown to become the mainstay of practice, choice attributable to their reported safety and effectiveness. We describe the unique and rare case of a dural arteriovenous fistula treated by transarterial embolization and complicated by an intraventricular hemorrhage. Read More

Does fasting influence preload responsiveness in ASA 1 and 2 volunteers?

Braz J Anesthesiol 2017 Mar - Apr;67(2):172-179. Epub 2016 May 16.

Centro Hospitalar de Lisboa Ocidental, Lisboa, Portugal.

Introduction: Preoperative fasting was long regarded as an important cause of fluid depletion, leading to hemodynamic instability during surgery should replenishment is not promptly instituted. Lately, this traditional point of view has been progressively challenged, and a growing number of authors now propose a more restrictive approach to fluid management, although doubt remains as to the true hemodynamic influence of preoperative fasting.

Methods: We designed an observational, analytic, prospective, longitudinal study in which 31 ASA 1 and ASA 2 volunteers underwent an echocardiographic examination both before and after a fasting period of at least 6hours (h). Read More

Braz J Anesthesiol 2017 Mar - Apr;67(2):153-165. Epub 2016 Apr 12.

Universidad de Barcelona, Hospital Clínic, Servicio de Anestesiología, Villarroel, Barcelona, Spain.

Background And Objectives: We examined the additive effect of the Ramsay scale, Canadian Neurological Scale (CNS), Nursing Delirium Screening Scale (Nu-DESC), and Bispectral Index (BIS) to see whether along with the assessment of pupils and Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) it improved early detection of postoperative neurological complications.

Methods: We designed a prospective observational study of two elective neurosurgery groups of patients: craniotomies (CG) and non-craniotomies (NCG). We analyze the concordance and the odds ratio (OR) of altered neurological scales and BIS in the Post-Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU) for postoperative neurological complications. Read More

Regulation of hypnosis in Propofol anesthesia administration based on non-linear control strategy.

Braz J Anesthesiol 2017 Mar - Apr;67(2):122-130. Epub 2016 May 11.

COMSATS Institute of Information Technology, Department of Electrical Engineering, Chak Shahzad, Pakistan.

Continuous adjustment of Propofol in manual delivery of anesthesia for conducting a surgical procedure overburdens the workload of an anesthetist who is working in a multi-tasking scenario. Going beyond manual administration and Target Controlled Infusion, closed-loop control of Propofol infusion has the potential to offer several benefits in terms of handling perturbations and reducing the effect of inter-patient variability. This paper proposes a closed-loop automated drug administration approach to control Depth Of Hypnosis in anesthesia. Read More

Maintenance of balance between airway pressure and intracranial pressure in a patient with tracheal stenosis undergoing craniotomy: a case report.

Braz J Anesthesiol 2017 Jan - Feb;67(1):92-94. Epub 2014 Oct 25.

Ankara University School of Medicine, Department of Anesthesiology and ICU, Ankara, Turkey.

Background And Objectives: Tracheal stenosis is a rare but a life-threatening condition and anesthesia of a patient with tracheal stenosis is challenging for anesthesiologists. Maintaining stable hemodynamics and ventilation parameters are important issues in neuroanesthesia. Any increase in airway peak pressure and ETCO will result in increase in intracranial pressure which must be avoided during craniotomies. Read More

Levosimendan as a treatment for acute renal failure associated with cardiogenic shock after hip fracture.

Braz J Anesthesiol 2017 Jan - Feb;67(1):89-91. Epub 2014 Oct 28.

Hospital Italiano de Buenos Aires, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Inotropic drugs are part of the treatment of heart failure; however, inotropic treatment has been largely debated due to the increased incidence of adverse effects and increased mortality. Recently levosimendan, an inotropic positive agent, has been proved to be effective in acute heart failure, reducing the mortality and improving cardiac and renal performance. We report the case of a 75-year-old woman with history of heart and renal failure and hip fracture. Read More

Universidade Federal de São Paulo (Unifesp), Escola Paulista de Medicina, Disciplina de Anestesiologia, Dor e Terapia Intensiva, São Paulo, SP, Brazil; Sociedade Brasileira de Anestesiologia, São Paulo, SP, Brazil.

Background And Objectives: The advent of ultrasound has brought many benefits to peripheral nerve blocks. It includes both safety and effectiveness, given the possibility of visualizing the neurovascular structures and the needle during the procedure. Despite these benefits, there is no consensus in the literature on the use of this technique in anticoagulated patients or with other coagulation disorders. Read More

Pontifícia Universidade Católica de São Paulo (PUC-SP), Faculdade de Ciências Médicas e da Saúde, Sorocaba, SP, Brazil.

Background And Objectives: For patients undergoing regional anesthesia for orthopedic surgery, a common situation in our work environment, the quality of recovery may be influenced in different ways, which justifies studies to identify possible predictive factors of dissatisfaction. The aim of this study was to assess the opinion of patients on recovery from anesthesia for lower limb orthopedic surgeries. We also identified potential predictive factors for poor quality of recovery. Read More
