Targeting accuracy of robot-assisted deep brain stimulation surgery in childhood-onset dystonia: a single-center prospective cohort analysis of 45 consecutive cases.

J Neurosurg Pediatr 2021 Apr 16:1-11. Epub 2021 Apr 16.

1Department of Neurosurgery, King's College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, London.

Objective: Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is an established treatment for pediatric dystonia. The accuracy of electrode implantation is multifactorial and remains a challenge in this age group, mainly due to smaller anatomical targets in very young patients compared to adults, and also due to anatomical abnormalities frequently associated with some etiologies of dystonia. Data on the accuracy of robot-assisted DBS surgery in children are limited. Read More

Increase in Blood-Brain Barrier (BBB) Permeability Is Regulated by MMP3 via the ERK Signaling Pathway.

Oxid Med Cell Longev 2021 30;2021:6655122. Epub 2021 Mar 30.

Department of Biological Sciences Division-Cardiology, University of Chicago, USA.

Background: The blood-brain barrier (BBB) regulates the exchange of molecules between the brain and peripheral blood and is composed primarily of microvascular endothelial cells (BMVECs), which form the lining of cerebral blood vessels and are linked via tight junctions (TJs). The BBB is regulated by components of the extracellular matrix (ECM), and matrix metalloproteinase 3 (MMP3) remodels the ECM's basal lamina, which forms part of the BBB. Oxidative stress is implicated in activation of MMPs and impaired BBB. Read More

Application of a Series of Two-Dimensional Transesophageal Echocardiographic (2D TEE) Views Across Multiple Axes Improves the Accuracy of Tricuspid Annular Measurements.

J Cardiothorac Vasc Anesth 2021 Mar 10. Epub 2021 Mar 10.

Department of Anesthesia, Austin Hospital, Heidelberg, Victoria, Australia.

Objectives: Quantification of the tricuspid annulus (TA) is an important factor in determining the requirement for tricuspid annuloplasty in cardiac surgery. Three-dimensional echocardiography (3DE) has shown that the TA is biplanar with an antero-posterior longaxis and septo-lateral shortaxis, and that the commonly used 2D TEE (two-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography) four-chamber view (4ChV) underestimates the true TA longaxis. The authors hypothesized that the use of multiple 2D TEE TA views could attain greater TA long-axis measurements and smaller TA short-axis measurements than the 4ChV, and that the 4ChV has a significant but inconsistent bias relative to the maximal TA diameter measured by these views.

Integrating Sleep Knowledge Into the Anesthesiology Curriculum.

Anesth Analg 2021 May;132(5):1296-1305

Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine, MetroHealth Medical Center, Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio.

There is common ground between the specialties of anesthesiology and sleep medicine. Traditional sleep medicine curriculum for anesthesiology trainees has revolved around the discussion of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and its perioperative management. However, it is time to include a broader scope of sleep medicine-related topics that overlap these specialties into the core anesthesia residency curriculum. Read More

Sleep spindles comprise a subset of a broader class of electroencephalogram events.

Sleep 2021 Apr 15. Epub 2021 Apr 15.

Brigham and Women's Hospital, Division of Sleep and Circadian Disorders, Boston, MA, USA.

Study Objectives: Sleep spindles are defined based on expert observations of waveform features in the electroencephalogram traces. This is a potentially limiting characterization, as transient oscillatory bursts like spindles are easily obscured in the time-domain by higher amplitude activity at other frequencies or by noise. It is therefore highly plausible that many relevant events are missed by current approaches based on traditionally-defined spindles. Read More

Environmental and Occupational Considerations of Anesthesia: A Narrative Review and Update.

Anesth Analg 2021 Apr 15. Epub 2021 Apr 15.

From the Global Medical Affairs, AbbVie Inc, North Chicago, Illinois.

With an estimated worldwide volume of 266 million surgeries in 2015, the call for general inhalation anesthesia is considerable. However, widely used volatile anesthetics such as N2O and the highly fluorinated gases sevoflurane, desflurane, and isoflurane are greenhouse gases, ozone-depleting agents, or both. Because these agents undergo minimal metabolism in the body during clinical use and are primarily (≥95%) eliminated unchanged via exhalation, waste anesthetic gases (WAGs) in operating rooms and postanesthesia care units can pose a challenge for overall elimination and occupational exposure.

J Am Vet Med Assoc 2021 May;258(9):1007-1010

Case Description: A 12-year-old Friesian stallion was examined because of a 1-year history of preputial injury and urination through a urethrocutaneous fistula located at the midbody of the ventral aspect of the penis.

Clinical Findings: Physical examination revealed an opening with a clearly apparent mucocutaneous junction 12 cm from the distal opening of the urethra on the ventral left side of the penis.

International Consensus Based Review and Recommendations for Minimum Reporting Standards in Research on Transcutaneous Vagus Nerve Stimulation (Version 2020).

Front Hum Neurosci 2020 23;14:568051. Epub 2021 Mar 23.

University Hospital of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Psychotherapy, University of Bern, Bern, Switzerland.

Given its non-invasive nature, there is increasing interest in the use of transcutaneous vagus nerve stimulation (tVNS) across basic, translational and clinical research. Contemporaneously, tVNS can be achieved by stimulating either the auricular branch or the cervical bundle of the vagus nerve, referred to as transcutaneous auricular vagus nerve stimulation(VNS) and transcutaneous cervical VNS, respectively. In order to advance the field in a systematic manner, studies using these technologies need to adequately report sufficient methodological detail to enable comparison of results between studies, replication of studies, as well as enhancing study participant safety.
