Inguinal hernia repair is a common worldwide surgical procedure usually done in the outpatient setting. The purpose of this systematic review is to make an evidence-based meta-analysis to determine the possible benefits of regional (neuraxial block) anesthesia compared to general anesthesia in open inguinal hernia repair in adults.

The aim of this study is to compare the effects of femoral analgesia (FA) with 0.25% levobupivacain and intravenous patient controlled analgesia (PCA) with morphine on postoperative pain assessed by a visual-analog scale (VAS) score and their complications during the first 24 postoperative hours after the a total knee arthroplasty in a prospective(More)
Osteogenesis Imperfecta is a rare, genetically determined disease with several possible complications in anaesthesia. Anaesthesiologists therefore pay special attention to the treatment of patients suffering from Osteogenesis Imperfecta since they commonly suffer from a difficult airway and intraoperative positioning difficulties. We report here the case of(More)
Difficult airway has gained increasing interest due to a relatively high number of adverse effects following unsuccessful intubation. Besides traditional techniques, several alternative methods are available today. It is crucial for the anesthesiologists and intensive care physicians to maintain sufficient oxygenation and ventilation of the patient. Hypoxia(More)
The incidence of traumatic spinal cord injury is 11,000 per year, with 55% of the injuries occurring between the age of 16 and 33, 18% of these in women of reproductive age. Diagnostic and early spinal decompression along with maintaining the mean arterial pressure to improve spinal cord perfusion and a high progesterone level in pregnancy for its(More)
To present a new model derived from Ross’s model for the assessment of the total amount of epidural fibrosis and to present inter- and intravariability study. Two readers blinded to each other and blinded to their first and second reading retrospectively evaluated the magnetic resonance examinations in 32 postoperative spine surgery patients using this(More)
The paper describe the use of rFVIIa in the management of massive bleeding in a patient with polytrauma involving liver injury. An 18-year-old girl with severe polytrauma sustained during a bus-car collision. She had multiple musculoskeletal injuries, severe concussion of the liver with amputation of the left liver lobe, disruption of the left hepatic vein(More)

Two cases of osteoid osteoma tumor (OO) are presented and our early experience with intraoperative gamma probing to localize OO during surgery is reported. The concept of radioguided surgery was developed 60 years ago and the gamma detection probe technology for radioguided biopsy and/or resection of bone lesions has been applied since the early 1980s.
