BACKGROUND Ketamine-induced hemodynamic pressor response and psychomimetic effects should be attenuated by appropriate premedication. The present study was designed to evaluate the clinical efficacy and safety of dexmedetomidine premedication for balancing the ketamine-induced hemodynamic pressor response and psychomimetic effects. MATERIALS AND METHODS A(More)
BACKGROUND The airway instrumentation of direct laryngoscopy and tracheal intubation are powerful noxious stimuli that should be attenuated by appropriate premedication, smooth induction and rapid intubation. The present study evaluated the safe and clinically effective dose of oral pregabalin premedication for attenuation of haemodynamic pressor response(More)
CONTEXT Fluid absorption is inevitable complication of transuretheral resection of prostate and serum electrolytes changes can indirectly assess the irrigation fluid absorption. AIMS To monitor the extent of 1.5% glycineirrigation fluid absorption during transurethral resection of prostate (TURP), by measuring the changes of serum sodium and potassium(More)
BACKGROUND Anesthetic management of elderly patients is a challenge as aging makes them more susceptible to hemodynamic fluctuations during regional anesthesia. This study was aimed to compare the clinical efficacy of epidural 0.75% ropivacaine fentanyl (RF)- with 0.5% bupivacaine-fentanyl (BF) for hemiarthroplasty in high-risk elderly patients. METHODS(More)
BACKGROUND Postoperative nausea and vomiting is commonly associated with adverse consequences and hamper the postoperative recovery in spite of the availability of many antiemetic drugs and regimens for its prevention. The study was aimed to compare the prophylactic effects of intravenously administered palonosetron, ondansetron, and granisetron on(More)
The experience in treating three patients with hemangiopericytoma is reviewed. One patient was given irradiation alone, and the others were both treated with surgery and irradiation. Our experience reinforces reports of the usefulness of irradiation in treating this neoplasm and its metastases.
Panfacial fractures present a unique set of problems to the anaesthesiologist and surgeon. Airway management in panfacial fractures is still a challenge to the anaesthesiologist as all modalities available such as orotracheal intubation, nasotracheal intubation, tracheostomy, etc., have their own advantages and disadvantages. When all the conventional(More)
A case of carotid body tumour is reported and the salient features of its histopathology have been described. Its excision with resection of the carotid arteries can be safely undertaken if the tumour is of long duration, the angiography shows marked displacement of the carotid arteries and if the blood pressure is maintained during surgery by regulating(More)
