BACKGROUND AND AIMS Mixing adjuvants with hyperbaric bupivacaine in a single syringe before injecting the drugs intrathecally is an age old practice. In doing so, the density of the hyperbaric solution and also of the adjuvant drugs may be altered, thus affecting the spread of drugs. Administering local anaesthetic and the adjuvants separately may minimise(More)
BACKGROUND Density of the drugs injected intrathecally is an important factor that influences spread in the cerebrospinal fluid. Mixing adjuvants with local anesthetics (LA) alters their density and hence their spread compared to when given sequentially in seperate syringes. AIMS To evaluate the efficacy of intrathecal administration of hyperbaric(More)
CONTEXT Although antisnake venom (ASV) has been used for many years, selection of an optimal dose is a debated issue due to acute shortage of ASV in India. Despite evidence for smaller doses, most centers still use conventional doses. AIMS This study aimed to evaluate the effects of two different dosage regimens on the outcome of patients with snake(More)
Intra-medullary nailing is a standard form of treatment for diaphyseal tibial fractures. Insertion of the nail requires threading of the nail over a smooth guide-wire. Inadvertent complications during this stage have been reported. We report a case of inadvertent penetration of the tibio-talar joint by the smooth guide wire caused by incarceration of a(More)
