Beta-adrenergic receptor blockers have proved to be effective for the management of various cardiovascular diseases and the prevention of perioperative cardiac events and cerebrovascular accidents. Landiolol is a short-acting beta-blocker, with high beta 1-selectivity and a short duration of action. We thought landiolol was valuable and suitable for(More)
Several hemoglobin (Hb)-based oxygen carriers are available for use in clinical situations, but their use risks inducing cardiovascular dysfunction as a result of Hb interacting with nitric oxide. Hb vesicles (HbV) are liposome-encapsulated purified human Hb with polyethylene glycol chains at the surface. This study evaluated the effects of HbV on(More)
AIM Atrial fibrillation is one of the most common postoperative arrhythmias following cardiac surgery. Despite many clinical studies, there is still no consensus on the most appropriate prevention strategy for atrial arrhythmia. A randomized prospective trial was conducted to determine the efficacy of intravenous landiolol administration in the early period(More)
BACKGROUND The number of citations an article receives reflects its scientific impact. The introduction of internet-based resources to search and access articles has made it possible to review even whole scientific areas. This study identifies the top 50 most-cited articles over the last 25 years in specialty journals dedicated to anaesthesia and pain,(More)
Here we report on a postoperative living-donor liver transplantation (LDLT) patient who received nightly infusions of dexmedetomidine (DEX), a specific α2-adrenergic receptor agonist, to treat agitation and insomnia during an intensive care unit stay. The infusion rate was adjusted according to the Ramsay sedation score. The actual plasma concentrations(More)
BACKGROUND Serratus-intercostal plane block (SIPB) is a novel ultrasound-guided thoracic wall nerve block reported recently. We performed SIPB for perioperative analgesia together with general anesthesia in patients undergoing partial mastectomy. METHODS We chose the patients with breast cancer of upper to lower lateral quadrant or subareolar region. The(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine whether and to what extent coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery without extracorporeal circulation is associated with cardiac troponin T (TnT) release. DESIGN Prospective study. SETTING A single university hospital. PARTICIPANTS Twenty-three patients scheduled for minimally invasive CABG surgery. Sixteen patients(More)
Purpose. We attempted to identify the optimal infusion rate of glucose to maintain an appropriate usage of energy sources during minor surgery after an overnight fast. Methods. Forty patients scheduled for tympanoplasty or skin grafting under sevoflurane anesthesia were assigned to four groups. The patients received a 2-h infusion of either saline or(More)
PURPOSE To determine the effect of intrathecal injection of morphine 0.2 mg on postoperative analgesia, activity and satisfaction after elective cesarean section. METHOD Forty-five parturients who had previously undergone cesarean section with spinal anesthesia without intrathecal morphine were enrolled in this randomized, double-blinded study. Group 1(More)
