Blood Sugar Targets in Surgical Intensive Care—Management and Special Considerations in Patients With Diabetes.

Dtsch Arztebl Int 2021 09 17;118(Forthcoming). Epub 2021 Sep 17.

Background: 30-80% of patients being treated in intensive care units in the perioperative period develop hyperglycemia. This stress hyperglycemia is induced and maintained by inflammatoryendocrine and iatrogenic stimuli and generally requires treatment. There is uncertainty regarding the optimal blood glucose targets for patients with diabetes mellitus. Read More

Case Report: Management of Multiple Deep-Tissue Cellulitis Without Sling Removal After an Anti-incontinence Procedure in a Female With Diabetes Mellitus.

Front Surg 2020 18;7:600754. Epub 2020 Dec 18.

Department of Gynecology, The First Affiliated Hospital of Wenzhou Medical University, Wenzhou, China.

The transobturator suburethral tape procedure is emerging as a preferred surgical option in the management of stress urinary incontinence. This procedure, also called tension-free vaginal tape transobturator (TVT-O) procedure, has fewer risks of injury to the bladder, similar effectiveness, and shorter surgery duration compared with the older tension-free vaginal tape (TVT) procedure. In this study, we report the case of a female patient with type 2 diabetes mellitus who developed emergency ketoacidosis and severe cellulitis after a TVT-O procedure, which was successfully managed without sling removal and open drainage of abscesses after multi-point puncture drainage, guided by ultrasound and appropriate antibiotic administration.

Perioperative management of metformin: is there something new?

Cas Lek Cesk 2020 ;159(6):210-212

Metformin is the drug of choice in the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus. Diabetic patients treated with metformin, who are scheduled for surgery, have always been subjects to discussion regarding the perioperative management of metformin because of the risk of developing lactic acidosis. The article presents the basic informations about this adverse event, describes new approach to the metformin treatment in the perioperative period, and summarizes the recommendations of professional societies and expert groups.

In the Spotlight: Role of Gla-100 in the Glycemic Management of Hospitalized people with diabetes.

J Assoc Physicians India 2020 Dec;68(12[Special]):55-59

Chairman and Chief Diabetologist, Dr. Mohan's Diabetes Specialities Centre, Chennai, Tamil Nadu.

Both hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia in hospitalized patients represent a major concern as they are associated with adverse outcomes-including increased rates of infection, longer hospital stay, and even death. Insulin therapy is the mainstay in the management of inpatient hyperglycemia. The traditional approach of sliding scale insulin (SSI) therapy for the temporary management of blood glucose levels in hospitalized patients, has now given way to basal-bolus insulin (BBI) therapy.

Mayo Clin Proc 2020 12 6;95(12):2760-2774. Epub 2020 Nov 6.

Division of General Internal Medicine, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN.

Evaluation of endocrine issues is a sometimes overlooked yet important component of the preoperative medical evaluation. Patients with diabetes, thyroid disease, and hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis suppression are commonly encountered in the surgical setting and require unique consideration to optimize perioperative risk. For patients with diabetes, perioperative glycemic control has the strongest association with postsurgical outcomes. Read More

Surgical Revascularization With Cardiopulmonary Bypass on a Patient With Severe COVID-19.

Semin Cardiothorac Vasc Anesth 2021 Mar 15;25(1):46-50. Epub 2020 Oct 15.

Institut Mutualiste Montsouris, Paris, France.

The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) may lead to an acute respiratory distress syndrome by an inappropriate cytokine response and may predispose to a prothrombotic state through multiple pathways. Both can complicate the management of cardiac surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass, which is known to activate the hemostatic system and to exacerbate systemic inflammatory response. Little is known about the impact of cardiac surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass on viral pneumonia, particularly with the new coronavirus. Read More

Management of sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 inhibitors during the perioperative period: A retrospective comparative study.

J Perioper Pract 2020 Sep 8:1750458920948693. Epub 2020 Sep 8.

Department of Intensive Care Medicine, Peninsula Health, Melbourne, Australia.

Purpose: Current guidelines recommend withholding sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 inhibitors perioperatively due to concerns of euglycaemic diabetic ketoacidosis. However, such guidelines are largely based on case reports and small case series, many extrapolated from non-surgical patients. The aim was to investigate whether withholding sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 inhibitors as per current perioperative guidelines was associated with a reduction in serious adverse events, including euglycaemic diabetic ketoacidosis.

Magnesium and Pain.

Nutrients 2020 Jul 23;12(8). Epub 2020 Jul 23.

Department of Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine, Seoul National University Bundang Hospital, Seongnam-si, Gyeonggi-do 13620, Korea.

In terms of antinociceptive action, the main mode of action of magnesium involves its antagonist action at the -methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) receptor, which prevents central sensitization and attenuates preexisting pain hypersensitivity. Given the pivotal function of NMDA receptors in pain transduction, magnesium has been investigated in a variety of pain conditions. The oral and parenteral administration of magnesium via the intravenous, intrathecal, or epidural route may alleviate pain and perioperative anesthetic and analgesic requirements. Read More
