Percutaneous treatment of low flow vascular malformations.
Low flow vascular malformations, especially venous and macrocystic lymphatic malformations, are effectively treated by percutaneous intralesional injection of sclerosant drugs, such as ethanol andExpand
High dose dexmedetomidine as the sole sedative for pediatric MRI
A large‐scale retrospective review evaluates the sedation profile of dexmedetomidine and concludes that it is safe to say that high doses of this drug increase the risk of adverse events. Expand
Adverse cardiovascular and respiratory events during sedation of pediatric patients for imaging examinations.
Consideration should be given to using single agents, avoiding the use of multidrug sedation regimens, and recognizing that a history of pulmonary disease could be associated with an increased risk of adverse respiratory events despite a currently stable respiratory state. Expand
Dexmedetomidine: review, update, and future considerations of paediatric perioperative and periprocedural applications and limitations.
This review focuses on the current paediatric perioperative and periprocedural applications of dexmedetomidine and its limitations, with a consideration for the future. Expand
Dexmedetomidine for Pediatric Sedation for Computed Tomography Imaging Studies
Based on the pilot results, dexmedetomidine may provide a reliable and effective method of providing sedation in the pediatric population. Expand
Superiority of pentobarbital versus chloral hydrate for sedation in infants during imaging.
Although oral pentobarbital and oral chloral hydrate are equally effective, the incidence of adverse events with pentobarBital was significantly reduced, and both medications were equally effective in providing successful sedation. Expand
Coagulation abnormalities in pediatric and adult patients after sclerotherapy or embolization of vascular anomalies.
A positive relationship was found between the use of dehydrated alcohol or sodium tetradecyl sulfate and a disruption in coagulation profiles as evidenced by a decrease in platelets and fibrinogen, an increase in prothrombin time, and a conversion from negative to positive d-dimers. Expand
Radiologist-supervised ketamine sedation for solid organ biopsies in children and adolescents.
The experience suggests that interventional radiologists may supervise a nurse-administered ketamine protocol to provide safe, effective analgesia and sedation for liver and renal biopsies. Expand
Serum ethanol levels in children and adults after ethanol embolization or sclerotherapy for vascular anomalies.
The volume of ethanol administered is the most reliable predictor of serum ethanol level and legal intoxication. Expand
Dexmedetomidine in Children: Current Knowledge and Future Applications
The safety record of dexmedetomidine suggests that it can be used effectively and safely in children, with appropriate monitoring and interventions to manage cardiovascular sequelae. Expand
