Clonidine is effective in treating sevoflurane-induced postanesthesia agitation in children. We conducted a study on 169 children to quantify the risk reduction of clonidine agitation in patients admitted to our day-surgery pediatric clinic. Children were randomly allocated to receive clonidine 2 mug/kg or placebo before general anesthesia with sevoflurane(More)
The authors report their experience in laparoscopic repair of inguinal hernias in children. From May 2010 to November 2013, 122 patients with inguinal hernia underwent laparoscopic herniorrhaphy (92 males and 30 females). Telescope used was 5 mm, while trocars for the operative instruments were 3 or 2 mm. After introducing the camera at the umbilical level(More)
BACKGROUND This 'real-life' study aimed to analyze the time from the start of neostigmine or sugammadex administration to recovery to a train of four ratio (TOFr) of 0.9 in a real-life in patients receiving rocuronium. The secondary aims were to assess the proportion of patients: presenting TOFr < 0.9 after 5, 10, and 20 min from reversal agent(More)
The Authors report the causal discovery of isolated persistent left superior vena cava (IPLSVC) during a central venous incannulation with a Groshong's catheter, in a patient undergoing bone marrow transplant. After a short introduction about the IPLSVC ontogenesis, they stress the need for fluoroscopy during the central venous incannulation. The Authors(More)
BACKGROUND The preoperative assessment involves the process of evaluating the patient's clinical condition, which is intended to define the physical status classification, eligibility for anesthesia and the risks associated with it, thus providing elements to select the most appropriate and individualized anesthetic plan. The aim of this recommendation was(More)
The Authors have studied three nondepolarizing muscle relaxants widely used: pancuronium v/s atracurium and vecuronium. The Train of Four was used to detect the magnitude of the neuromuscular blockade. The intubation follows 90 minutes after administration of the drugs and for each patient the Authors valued: 1) the T1 and TR values at intubation; 2) the(More)
