Direct and imaging morphometry for the localization of the mandibular foramen (MF) in dentate and edentulous human subjects.

Rom J Morphol Embryol 2020 Jul-Sep;61(3):783-791

Department of Oral Rehabilitation, Faculty of Dental Medicine, Carol Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Bucharest, Romania;

Background: The mandibular foramen (MF) is the anatomic landmark where the interior alveolar nerve enters the mandibular ramus, and the area of choice where anesthesia of this nerve is performed. The position of the MF can vary, and accurately establishing its location and topographic variations is of great importance for the successful anesthesia of the inferior alveolar nerve.

Materials And Methods: We carried out two morphometric ex vivo studies concerning the topography of the MF, on dry human mandibles coming from dentate and completely edentulous human subjects of known age and gender and an in vivo morphometric study, through cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) scans, concerning the topography of the MF in human subjects having Kennedy Class I mandibular edentulism.

National Pirogov Memorial Medical University, Vinnytsya, Ukraine.

Acute postoperative pain is still an urgent problem in surgery. Today there are many drugs for pain relief, but at the same time, the adequacy of postoperative analgesia for the subjective assessments of patients does not exceed 50%. Therefore, taking into account the pathophysiology of acute pain syndrome, it is necessary to inject an anesthetic directly near the operating field, which can be achieved by long-term conduction anesthesia.

How can local anaesthesia be improved in the management of irreversible pulpitis?

Evid Based Dent 2021 01;22(1):26-27

StR Restorative, Dundee Dental School, Dundee, UK.

Background Pain management in endodontic treatment is often managed with local anaesthetic, occasionally supplemented with oral medication. Currently, there is little evidence to suggest the best combination of local anaesthetic and oral medication to provide optimal pain control in symptomatic irreversible pulpits. A network meta-analysis was carried out to identify the best agent/technique for pulpal anaesthesia in both the maxilla and mandible in irreversible pulpits. Read More

A Comprehensive Enhanced Recovery Pathway for Rotator Cuff Surgery Reduces Pain, Opioid Use, and Side Effects.

Clin Orthop Relat Res 2021 Mar 16. Epub 2021 Mar 16.

J. T. YaDeau, E. M. Soffin, A. Tseng, H. Zhong, M. A. Gordon, B. H. Lee, K. Kumar, R. L. Kahn, M. A. Kirksey, A. A. Schweitzer, Department of Anesthesiology, Critical Care and Pain Management, Hospital for Special Surgery, New York, NY, USA.

Background: Patients often have moderate to severe pain after rotator cuff surgery, despite receiving analgesics and nerve blocks. There are many suggested ways to improve pain after rotator cuff surgery, but the effects of adopting a pathway that includes formal patient education, a long-acting nerve block, and extensive multimodal analgesia are unclear.

Questions/purposes: (1) Does adoption of a clinical pathway incorporating patient education, a long-acting nerve block, and preemptive multimodal analgesia reduce the worst pain during the first 48 hours after surgery compared with current standard institutional practices? (2) Does adoption of the pathway reduce opioid use? (3) Does adoption of the pathway reduce side effects and improve patient-oriented outcomes?

Methods: From September 2018 to January 2020, 281 patients scheduled for arthroscopic ambulatory rotator cuff surgery were identified for this paired sequential prospective cohort study. Read More
