The supra-iliac anterior quadratus lumborum block: a cadaveric study and case series.

Can J Anaesth 2019 Mar 11. Epub 2019 Mar 11.

Department of Anesthesia, Toronto Western Hospital, University of Toronto, Toronto, ON, Canada.

Purpose: The local anesthetic injectate spread with fascial plane blocks and corresponding clinical outcomes may vary depending on the site of injection. We developed and evaluated a supra-iliac approach to the anterior quadratus lumborum (QL) block and hypothesized that this single injection might successfully block the lumbar and sacral plexus in cadavers and provide analgesia for patients undergoing hip surgery.

Methods: Ultrasound-guided bilateral supra-iliac anterior QL blocks were performed with 30 mL of India ink dye in six fresh adult cadavers. Read More

Intravenous dexmedetomidine for the treatment of shivering during Cesarean delivery under neuraxial anesthesia: a randomized-controlled trial.

Can J Anaesth 2019 Apr 3. Epub 2019 Apr 3.

CHU Sainte-Justine, 3175 Côte Sainte-Catherine, Montréal, QC, H3T 1C5, Canada.

Purpose: About 55% of patients undergoing a Cesarean delivery under spinal or epidural anesthesia will experience shivering, which may interfere with the monitoring of vital signs. Recent studies have shown that dexmedetomidine could potentially help to alleviate shivering associated with anesthesia. We investigated whether dexmedetomidine, an alpha 2-adrenergic agonist, reduces the duration of shivering associated with neuraxial anesthesia during Cesarean delivery. Read More

The effect of neck extension on success rate of blind intubation through Ambu® AuraGain™ laryngeal mask: a randomized clinical trial.

Can J Anaesth 2019 Mar 27. Epub 2019 Mar 27.

Department of Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine, Seoul National University Hospital, Seoul National University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Purpose: Although the use of fibreoptic guidance is recommended for tracheal intubation through supraglottic airway devices, it can also be performed in a blind manner. Based on the previous finding that a fibreoptic view of the vocal cords was better in the extended neck position than in the neutral position, we hypothesized that neck extension can better facilitate blind intubation through the Ambu® AuraGain™ laryngeal mask than the neutral position.

Methods: Patients undergoing general anesthesia were randomly assigned to the extension group or the neutral group. Read More

The incidence, significance, and management of accidental intra-arterial injection: a narrative review.

Can J Anaesth 2019 May 15;66(5):576-592. Epub 2019 Mar 15.

Department of Anesthesia and Pain Medicine, Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto, ON, Canada.

This narrative review discusses the incidence, risk factors, mechanisms of injury, complications, and treatment regimens for accidental intra-arterial injection of medications. Despite awareness of the issue and the establishment of safety recommendations by national agencies, accidental iatrogenic intra-arterial injection of medications continues to occur. Most of these injuries are caused by accidental injection into an established arterial cannula or the inadvertent and unrecognized cannulation of an artery instead of a vein. Read More

Right upper lobe anatomy revisited: a computed tomography scan study.

Can J Anaesth 2019 Mar 5. Epub 2019 Mar 5.

Multidisciplinary Department of Respiratory Medicine and Thoracic Surgery, Institut universitaire de cardiologie et de pneumologie de Québec - Université Laval, Quebec City, QC, Canada.

Background: The double lumen tube (DLT) has become the most popular way to isolate the lungs for thoracic surgery. The variable anatomy of the right main stem bronchus (RMSB) seems to be the main reason clinicians are unwilling to use the right-sided DLT (R-DLT). The factors that could compromise the adequate ventilation of the right lung are mostly the variable length of the RMSB and the misalignment of the lateral orifice of the R-DLT in regard to the right upper lobe bronchus (RULB).

Anesthetic technique and cancer outcomes: a meta-analysis of total intravenous versus volatile anesthesia.

Can J Anaesth 2019 May 4;66(5):546-561. Epub 2019 Mar 4.

Department of Anaesthesia, Perioperative and Pain Medicine, Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, Melbourne, Australia.

Purpose: Cancer-related mortality, a leading cause of death worldwide, is often the result of metastatic disease recurrence. Anesthetic techniques have varying effects on innate and cellular immunity, activation of adrenergic-inflammatory pathways, and activation of cancer-promoting cellular signaling pathways; these effects may translate into an influence of anesthetic technique on long-term cancer outcomes. To further analyze the effects of propofol (intravenous) and volatile (inhalational gas) anesthesia on cancer recurrence and survival, we undertook a systematic review with meta-analysis. Read More

CHU de Québec - Université Laval Research Centre, Population Health and Optimal Health Practices Research Unit, Trauma - Emergency - Critical Care Medicine, Université Laval, Quebec City, QC, Canada.

Background: Anemia is common in critically ill patients with traumatic brain injury, and often requires red blood cell transfusion. Studies suggest that prolonged storage causes lesions of the red blood cells, including a decreased ability to carry oxygen. Considering the susceptibility of the brain to hypoxemia, victims of traumatic brain injury may thus be more vulnerable to exposure to older red blood cells. Read More

Department of Anesthesia and Critical Care, University of Chicago, 5841 S. Maryland Ave., MC4028, Chicago, IL, 60637, USA.

Purpose: Intraoperative critical events typically include vital sign instability that requires a specific and time-sensitive response. Although cognitive aids can improve clinical performance during critical events, their design may not be optimized for real-world use. For example, during a critical event, health practitioners may be familiar with the treatment pathway and only require specific information from an aid-a behaviour described as "sampling". Read More

Malignant Hyperthermia Investigation Unit, Toronto General Hospital, 323-200 Elizabeth Street, Toronto, ON, M5G 2C4, Canada.

Purpose: The present report of two fatal awake malignant hyperthermia (MH) episodes in an MH susceptible (MHS) family is intended to raise awareness among medical personnel and MHS individuals to the possibility of life-threatening non-anesthesia-triggered MH episodes and to provide a strong incentive for development of effective preventive measures.

Clinical Features: Two young athletic males (28 and 16 yr old), members of the same extended family with a history of anesthesia-related MH episodes and deaths, succumbed ten years apart on two different continents, with symptoms unrelated to anesthesia but strikingly similar to typical anesthetic-induced MH. Both suffered an abrupt surge in body temperature, tachycardia, tachypnea, muscle rigidity, hyperkalemia, and respiratory and metabolic acidosis. Read More

The evaluation of smartphone versions of the visual analogue scale and numeric rating scale as postoperative pain assessment tools: a prospective randomized trial.

Can J Anaesth 2019 Feb 22. Epub 2019 Feb 22.

Department of Anesthesiology, Pharmacology & Therapeutics, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, BC, Canada.

Purpose: The Pain assessment using a novel digital application (Panda) is a smartphone application that contains the digital versions of the visual analogue scale (VAS-100) and numeric rating scale (NRS-11). This study aimed to investigate if the Panda versions of these two pain scales are equivalent to the paper versions in adult patients.

Methods: This was a prospective, randomized, cross-over-controlled trial of subjects aged 19-75 yr undergoing procedures with anticipated post-surgical pain. Read More

Ocular injury during spine surgery.

Can J Anaesth 2019 Feb 21. Epub 2019 Feb 21.

Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine, Mayo Clinic, 200 First St SW, Rochester, MN, 55905, USA.

Purpose: Ocular injury and vision loss are rare complications of surgery. Spine surgery has been identified as particularly high risk for postoperative vision loss; nevertheless, ocular injuries have not been comprehensively assessed in this patient population.

Methods: This historical cohort study assessed incidence, cause, and risk factors of perioperative ocular injury after spine surgery at a tertiary care medical centre from January 1, 2006 through January 31, 2018. Read More

Enhanced myocardial protection in cardiac donation after circulatory death using Intralipid postconditioning in a porcine model.

Can J Anaesth 2019 Feb 21. Epub 2019 Feb 21.

Department of Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine, University of Alberta, Edmonton, AB, T6G 2G3, Canada.

Purpose: Intralipid (ILE), a clinically used lipid emulsion, reduces ischemia-reperfusion (IR) injury in healthy and infarct-remodelled rat hearts. We tested whether ILE is also cardioprotective in large porcine hearts in the context of the donation after circulatory death (DCD) model, where human hearts are procured for transplantation after cardiac arrest and thus are exposed to significant IR injury.

Methods: After induction of anesthesia, surgical preparation, termination of ventilator support, and cardiac arrest, hearts of female pigs were procured following a 15 min standoff period, with an optimized normokalemic crystalloid adenosine-lidocaine cardioplegia. Read More
