INTRODUCTION The role of non-invasive positive pressure ventilation delivered through a face mask in patients with flail chest is uncertain. We conducted a prospective, randomised study of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) given via a face mask to spontaneously breathing patients compared with intermittent positive pressure ventilation (IPPV) with(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the effects of ropivacaine and bupivacaine on post-tonsillectomy pain in children. METHODS Forty-six children aged 2-12 years, undergoing tonsillectomy were enrolled in the study. Group 1 (n=16) received bupivacaine, group 2 (n=15) received ropivacaine, and a group 3 (control) (n=15) received 9% NaCl (saline) infiltrated around each(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the effects of pneumoperitoneum on lung mechanics, end-tidal CO2 (ETCO2), arterial blood gases (ABG), and oxidative stress markers in blood and bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) during laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) by using lung-protective ventilation strategy. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty-six patients undergoing LC and abdominal(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Rheumatoid arthritis is a lifelong systemic disease that can affect any joint with a synovium. Managing intubation in patients with rheumatoid disease is a special challenge in these patients especially if specific joints, which play an important role during intubation, are affected. We aimed to investigate if there was a(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVE To determine whether intravenous injection of lornoxicam 30 minutes before skin incision provides better pain relief after varicocelectomy than postoperative administration of lornoxicam. DESIGN Prospective, double-blind, randomized clinical investigation. SETTING Operating room and postoperative recovery area. PATIENTS 44 ASA physical(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare unilateral spinal anaesthesia (USA) and ultrasound-guided combined sciatic-femoral nerve block (USFB) in ambulatory arthroscopic knee surgeries in terms of haemodynamic stability, nerve block quality, bladder function, adverse events and time-to-readiness for discharge (TRD). METHODS Patients undergoing ambulatory arthroscopic knee(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of a multimodal analgesic regimen, including intravenous ketamine and peritonsillar infiltration of bupivacaine, on post-tonsillectomy pain in children. MATERIAL/METHODS Ninety children aged 2-12 years, undergoing tonsillectomy, were enrolled in this randomized, controlled and double-blinded(More)
BACKGROUND Clinical effects, recovery characteristics, and costs of total intravenous anesthesia with different inhalational anesthetics have been investigated and compared; however, there are no reported clinical studies focusing on the effects of anesthesia with propofol and desflurane in patients undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy. OBJECTIVE The(More)
OBJECTIVE Hemorrhage during tonsillectomy is related to the surgical technique, management of bleeding, and choice of anesthetic agent. This study evaluated the effects of anesthetic agents on hemorrhage during tonsillectomy with standardized surgical techniques and management of bleeding. STUDY DESIGN Double-blind, randomized controlled trial. SUBJECTS(More)
Elderly patients with severe hematological malignancies may require cardiac surgery. The combined impact of cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) and surgical trauma is a potent inflammatory activator and is increased by intraoperative and postoperative complications. To avoid the adverse effects of CPB, minimally invasive off-pump techniques may be used in these(More)
