BACKGROUND Lumbar facet nerve (medial branch) blocks are often used to diagnose facet joint-mediated pain. The authors recently described a new ultrasound-guided methodology. The current study determines its accuracy using computed tomography scan controls. METHODS Fifty bilateral ultrasound-guided approaches to the lumbar facet nerves were performed in(More)
The aim of our study was to evaluate the striated urethral sphincter (rhabdosphincter) in incontinent females by means of intraurethral ultrasound (IUUS). Thirty-four incontinent and 11 continent female patients were examined by means of 12.5-MHz endoluminal ultrasound (US). The distance between the inner contour of the sphincter muscle and the US catheter(More)
BACKGROUND Pediatric regional anesthesia has gained increasing interest over the past decades. The current study was conducted to investigate the lumbar paravertebral region and the lumbar plexus at L3-L4 and L4-L5 by means of sonography to obtain fundamentals for the performance of ultrasound-guided posterior lumbar plexus blocks. METHODS Thirty-two(More)
PURPOSE To report a case of cerebral ischemia confirmed by magnetic resonance imaging after successful cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) complicated by acute respiratory injury. MATERIALS AND METHODS After 4 min of cardiac arrest, followed by 3 min of basic life support CPR, a female pig weighing 38 kg received every 5 min vasopressin (0.4, 0.4 and 0.8(More)
