BACKGROUND Olprinone hydrochloride (OLP) is a new phosphodiesterase III inhibitor with positive inotropic and vasodilator properties. It is characterized by strong inotropic effect and relatively weak vasodilating effect. Although the method for administration of OLP has been reasonably optimized, no studies have examined the administration mode for(More)
The onset of the pain, tenderness and swelling in the scrotal content is a common complaint in the urological outpatient. A child with those symptoms should be looked on as an emergency sign requiring emergency surgical exploration as a testicular torsion. Testicular torsion represents a surgical emergency because the likelihood of testicular salvage(More)
BACKGROUND The McGRATH MAC Video laryngoscope (Covidien Japan) is a relatively new device for tracheal intubation, which provides an excellent glottis view. We here report the clinical experience of the McGRATH in 100 patients who received general anesthesia. METHODS Tracheal intubation with the McGRATH was performed in 100 patients requiring oro/naso(More)
A 62-year-old man was scheduled for resection of a giant thyroid tumor. We planned awake fiberoptic nasotracheal intubation using a Parker spiral tube. Because a Parker spiral tube may improve endotracheal tube passage with fiberoptic intubation when compared to a standard endotracheal tube. After inserting the bronchial fiberscope, his trachea was(More)
BACKGROUND Beta blockers are frequently used to reduce cardiac oxygen demand in off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting (OPCAB). However, significant bradycardia or negative inotropic effects are seen on occasion. We hypothesized that combined use of landiolol (L), an ultra short-acting beta blocker, and olprinone (O), a phosphodiesterase 3 inhibitor, is(More)
We studied the efficacy of the Coopdech videolaryngoscope Portable VLP-100, by comparing it with a Macintosh laryngoscope, and another videolaryngoscope, the Airway Scope (AWS), in a manikin with four simulated difficult airways. In a randomized, crossover design, each of 50 residents inserted the three devices, in turn, and graded the view of the glottis(More)
We present a case of a terminally ill child with cancer pain which was treated with intrathecal phenol block. A 13-year-old boy felt severe pain in the right buttock and leg due to osteosarcoma. Despite treatment with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, intravenous injection of morphine, continuous infusion of ketamine or continuous lumbar epidural block,(More)
GlideScope videolaryngoscope (GlideScope, herein-after referred to as "GS", Verathon Medical, Bothell, WA, USA), with a high-resolution camera positioned on a blade, enables operators to confirm the position of the larynx and a tube through clear view, thereby conducting intubation safely in a patient whose neck is difficult to be bent back. As the blade is(More)
