Inadvertent perioperative hypothermia complicates a large percentage of surgical procedures and is related to multiple factors. Strictly regulated in normal conditions (± 0.2°C), the core body temperature of an anaesthetised patient may fall by as much as 6°C, while a 2°C decrease is very common. This is due to a combination of anaesthesia-related(More)
INTRODUCTION Chronic pelvic pain syndrome occurs in 4-14% of women. Pain pathomechanism in this syndrome is complex, as it is common to observe the features of nociceptive, inflammatory, neuropathic and psychogenic pain. The common findings in women with pelvic pain are endometriosis and pelvic adhesions. OBJECTIVE Aim of the study was to test the(More)
After many years of experience in surgery, a series of recommendations have been created by a group of European specialists to improve the quality of perioperative care and maximize postoperative outcomes. Early mobilization and oral feeding, preoperative oral intake of carbohydrate-rich fluids, proper fluid and pain management, intensive postoperative(More)
Inadvertent intraoperative hypothermia is by far the most commonly occurring anaesthesia-related complication. It can increase the risk of unfavourable events perioperatively. Higher rates of surgical site infections and blood transfusions, coagulation and drug metabolism disturbances are said to be the most relevant issues linked to this phenomenon.(More)
Aplastic anemia is a rare disorder, both in the general population (2–6/million) and pregnancy. Immune destruction of the hematopoietic stem-cell compartment is the main feature of its pathogenesis, resulting in secondary decrease in the number of peripheral blood cell counts. Depending on the type of affected blood cells, it may present as a severe(More)
BACKGROUND Sympathetic system involvement in postherpetic neuralgia (PHN) has been targeted using peripheral sympathetic nerve blocks for a number of years with variable efficacy. The aim of this report is to present the outcomes of PHN management with concomitant use of pharmacological treatment and sympathetic nerve blocks. METHODS We retrospectively(More)
Here we report on the use of neurolytic block of ganglion impar (ganglion of Walther) for the management of intractable chronic pelvic pain, which is common enough to be recognized as a problem by gynecologists, likely to be difficult to diagnose and even more challenging to manage. Following failure in controlling the symptoms with pharmacological(More)
INTRODUCTION 5% lidocaine medicated plasters (5% LMP) have been appointed as a first-line treatment for post-herpetic neuralgia (PHN), while formerly used sympathetic nerve blocks (SNBs) were recently denied their clinical efficacy. The aim of this study was to compare the results of PHN management with the use of SNBs and 5% LMP as a first-line treatment.(More)
