PATIENTS AND METHODS Forty women with eclampsia requiring termination of pregnancy by caesarean delivery were randomized in to 2 groups of 20 to receive either midazolam or dexmedetomidine. The(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES It is crucial to decrease bleeding during functional endoscopic sinus surgery. Our primary goal was to investigate the effects of magnesium sulfate and dexmedetomidine used for controlled hypotension on the visibility of the surgical site. METHODS 60 patients aged between 18 and 65 years were enrolled. In the magnesium sulfate(More)
BACKGROUND In this study we aimed to investigate the effects of dexmedetomidine on early stage renal function in pediatric patients undergoing cardiac angiography. METHODS 60 pediatric patients between 6 and 72 months of age undergoing cardiac angiography were included in the study. Patients were divided into two groups. The patients in both groups were(More)
BACKGROUND Postoperative vomiting is a common complication after strabismus surgery in children. The serotonin 5-HT(3) receptor antagonists have proven to be a particularly valuable addition to the armamentarium against postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV). Palonosetron is a second-generation 5-HT(3) receptor antagonist that has recently been approved(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to compare the effect of adding magnesium to levobupivacaine on sensory and motor block onset and duration for axillary brachial plexus block in chronic renal failure (CRF) patients scheduled for arteriovenous fistule surgery (AVFS). METHODS 80 patients, ASA III, aged 30 to 70 years, randomized and(More)
BACKGROUND Intrathecal α2 agonists prolong the duration of action of local anesthetics and reduce the required dose. Dexmedetomidine is an α2 receptor agonist and its α2/α1 selectivity is 8 times higher than that of clonidine. AIMS In this study, we aimed to investigate the effect of adding dexmedetomidine to intrathecal levobupivacaine on the onset time(More)
BACKGROUND To maintain a high standard of patient care, it is essential to provide adequate pain management in patients who undergo nasal surgery. Levobupivacaine and ropivacaine are relatively new long-acting local anesthetics. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to compare the analgesic effect and blood loss of preincisional levobupivacaine HCl 0.25%(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM Premature infants experience more respiratory problems after surgical procedures. We aimed to compare general anesthesia with sedation regarding the need for postoperative mechanical ventilation in infants undergoing retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) surgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixty patients who underwent laser surgery for ROP were(More)
AIM Patent Ductus Arteriosus is an important cause of morbidity and mortality in preterms. As birth weight decrease, risks increase. Main aim of our study is to emphasize the effectiveness and safety of percutaneous PDA closure even in extremely low birth infants. MATERIALS AND METHODS In our center between the dates June 2014-June 2016, PDA of 10(More)
