[The effects of intrathecally administered neostigmine on somato-sympathetic reflex potentials].
BACKGROUND Antinociceptive effect of intrathecal neostigmine has been investigated using withdrawal responses in laboratory experiments. However, neostigmine administered in this route can induceExpand
[A retrospective study in spinal anesthesia for sumo-wrestlers].
BACKGROUND Spinal anesthesia for the Sumo-wrestler is thought to be difficult because of following reasons. 1. Sumo-wrestlers are so fatty and weighty that piercing spinal needle into theExpand
