Anaesthetic management of children with congenital insensitivity to pain with anhidrosis
Congenital insensitivity to pain with anhidrosis (CIPA) is a rare sensory neuropathy, which affects patients’ pain sensation and thermoregulation. There are several issues to consider when planningExpand

Rotation of the head might not be recommended for internal jugular puncture in infants and children
Background:  Traditionally, we have been puncturing the internal jugular vein (IJV) with the head rotated. However, in adults it has been suggested that rotation of the head increases the magnitudeExpand

Differential lung ventilation in an infant using LMATM and a long tracheal tube
This is a case report of differential lung ventilation in an infant using a conventional laryngeal mask airway (LMATM) and a commercially available longer paediatric tracheal tube. This 2‐month‐oldExpand

Cephalad origin of the superior vena cava and the level of the central venous catheter tip on chest radiographs
Background : There are suggested radiographic landmarks for the lower margin of the superior vena cava (SVC), but none for the cephalad origin of the SVC in children. Therefore, we determined theExpand

Central venous catheterization in infants and children – small caliber audio‐Doppler probe versus ultrasound scanner
Background : Ultrasound guidance for cannulation of the internal jugular vein has been shown to increase the success rate and reduce the incidence of complications in infants and children. WeExpand

Audio‐Doppler guidance using a small‐caliber Doppler probe for internal jugular venous puncture for central venous catheterization in infants and children
Background : We evaluated an audio‐Doppler with a small‐caliber probe as a guide for central venous cannulation (CVC) via the internal jugular vein (IJV) in infants and children.

Displacement of the common carotid artery after laryngeal mask airway placement in infants and children *
Background:  In adults, placement of the laryngeal mask airway causes increased overlapping of the internal jugular vein (IJV) and common carotid artery (CCA). However, few studies in children haveExpand

Repetitive cerebral blood flow measurements using laser speckle imaging in a transient cerebral ischemic mouse model.
Using laser speckle imaging (LSI), which can visualize quadratic distribution of blood flow, we measured blood flow changes in transient cerebral ischemic mice, and compared these results with dataExpand

An abnormal dentition in progeria
SIR Ð We read the case report by Nguyen and Mayhew (1) on progeria with great interest. We also had to provide anaesthesia to a similar patient for pericardiocentesis. As in their case, she hadExpand

The optimal insertion length of central venous catheter via the femoral route for open‐heart surgery in infants and children 1
Background:  The recommended insertion length of central venous (CV) catheter via the internal jugular or subclavian vein has been determined in infants and children. However, the insertion lengthExpand
