Changes of blood pressure and cerebral arterio‐venous oxygen content differences (AVDo2) with and without bupivacaine scalp infiltration during craniotomy
In 20 patients subjected to craniotomy for supratentorial cerebral tumours, the effect of scalp infiltration with bupivacaine before incision was evaluated by measuring mean arterial blood pressureExpand
[Sinusitis caused by nasotracheal intubation].
Sinusitis following nasotracheal intubation (NTI) is an almost overlooked complication. The pathogenesis is believed to be development of oedema of the nasal mucosa due to irritation by the tube inExpand
Complications and late sequelae following nasotracheal intubation
A total of 379 patients admitted to the ICU for mechanical ventilation were prospectively investigated for lesions on the nose, nasal cavity, ears and larynx during and after nasotracheal intubation.Expand
Minitracheotomy in the treatment of postoperative sputum retention and atelectasis
Minitracheotomy (MT) is a new method for the treatment of sputum retention and atelectasis. Through a I–cm incision in the cricothyroid membrane (coniotomy), a specially designed tube is placed inExpand
Outcome after Transthoracic Resection of Carcinoma of the Oesophagus and Oesophago-Gastric Junction
Aims: To assess the postoperative morbidity and mortality, length of stay and long-term survival after resection of carcinoma of the oesophagus and gastro-oesophageal junction, after establishment ofExpand

A total of 379 patients admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) for mechanical ventilation were prospectively investigated for lesions of the nose, nasal cavity, ears and larynx during and afterExpand
Is minitracheotomy a simple and safe procedure? A prospective investigation in the intensive care unit
Patients with imminent respiratory failure due to sputum retention were assessed for minitracheotomy (MT). MT was considered potentially useful in 79 patients but only attempted in 73, 54 men and 19Expand
