Diabetic neuropathic pain is one of the most commonly encountered neuropathic pain syndromes. However, the treatment of diabetic neuropathic pain is challenging because of partial effectiveness of currently available pain relievers. It is well known that diabetic animals are less sensitive to the analgesic effect of morphine, and opioids are found to be(More)
Analgesic effects of cannabimimetic compounds have been known to be related to their central effects. Cannabinoid receptors also exist in the periphery but their role in pain perception has been remained to be clarified. Therefore, we assessed topical antinociceptive effects of WIN 55, 212-2, a mixed CB(1) and CB(2) receptors agonist, in mice using(More)
Pain management during burn dressing changes is a critical part of treatment in acute burn injuries. Although several treatment options have been suggested, it is still a challenge in a clinical setting. This study is aimed at finding out an ideal analgesic, sedative and/or anxiolytic combination that would minimise the unwanted effects of ketamine. A total(More)
BACKGROUND The main aim of this study was to use a non-invasive method such as a face mask to maintain anesthesia in children during magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The secondary aim was to ascertain hemodynamic-respiration parameters, recovery time and complications of anesthesia with the administration of different concentrations of sevoflurane. (More)
STUDY OBJECTIVE To quantify and compare the effects of conventional volume-controlled ventilation (VCV) with the alternative mode, pressure-controlled ventilation (PCV), on respiratory mechanics and noninvasive hemodynamic parameters in patients undergoing laparoscopic gynecologic surgery. DESIGN Randomized controlled trial (Canadian Task Force(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this prospective, randomized, single-blinded study was to compare the effects of a carbohydrate drink 400 mL given 2 h before the surgery with preoperative overnight fasting on the gastric pH and residual volume, postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) and antiemetic consumption in patients undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy.

Epidermolysis bullosa is a hereditary rare condition characterized with local and generalized lesions and autosomal dominant trait with variable penetrance. It was decided to amputate the left leg under the knee of a female patient with epidermolysis bullosa with squamous cell carcinoma. The smallest trauma may cause formation of serious bullous in the skin(More)
BACKGROUND Local anesthetic effects of antihistamines are well known, but have been tested more for diphenhydramine than for chlorpheniramine. Midazolam, a benzodiazepine gamma-aminobutyric acid type A receptor agonist, induces spinally mediated analgesia. However, the local anesthetic effects of chlorpheniramine and midazolain have not been adequately(More)
SUMMARY Ex utero intrapartum treatment (EXIT) is a procedure performed during caesarean section with preservation of fetal-placental circulation, which allows the safe handling of fetal airways with risk of airways obstruction. This report aimed at describing a case of anaesthesia for EXIT in a fetus with cervical teratoma. A 30-year-old woman, 70 kg, 160(More)
Pfeiffer syndrome (PS) is an autosomal dominant condition comprising bilateral coronal craniosynostosis, midface hypoplasia with a beaked nasal tip, and broad and medially deviated thumbs and great toes [1]. It is a clinically variable disorder and has been divided into three subtypes by Cohen in 1993 [2]. Originally, it was described in eight persons from(More)
