BACKGROUND The metabolic hydrolysis of mivacurium (and succinylcholine) is markedly impaired in the presence of hereditary or acquired defects of pseudocholinesterase. Clinical reports are conflicting as to the utility of anticholinesterases, in the reversal of mivacurium paralysis. In the current study, the role of exogenous cholinesterases and/or of(More)
The effective concentrations of mivacurium induced neuromuscular block were studied in the phrenic nerve-hemidiaphragm preparations of forty male Sprague-Dawley rats in four groups according to body weight, 10 g, 25 g, 100 g, and 200 g. Mivacurium was added to the Krebs' solution to obtain an initial concentration of 0.275 microgram.ml-1 (2.5 x 10(-7)(More)
PURPOSE This study was designed to evaluate pharmacodynamically and pharmacokinetically if the cis-cis isomer of mivacurium contributed to neuromuscular block during prolonged infusions lasting more than four hours in young adult and elderly (> 60 yr) patients. METHODS The mechanomyogramic neuromuscular response of the adductor pollicis was recorded in 32(More)
PURPOSE To report on the use of the laryngeal mask airway (LMA) for elective Cesarean section in 1067 consecutive ASA I-II patients preferring general anesthesia. METHODS Patients were excluded if they had pharyngeal reflux, a pre-pregnancy body mass index >30, or had a known/predicted difficult airway. Patients were fasted for six hours and given(More)
Hepatic regeneration is essential to meet the metabolic demands of partial liver grafts following living donor liver transplantation (LDLT). Hepatic regeneration is promoted by portal hyperperfusion of partial grafts, which produces shear stress on the sinusoidal endothelium. Hepatic regeneration is difficult to assess within the first 2 weeks after LDLT as(More)
