OBJECT The authors report on the long-term outcome in 100 consecutive patients with meningiomas arising from the cavernous sinus (CS) with compressive extension outside the CS. The treatment in all cases was surgery alone without adjuvant radiosurgery or radiotherapy. The aim of this study was to evaluate the percentage of patients in whom surgery alone was(More)
UNLABELLED The neuromuscular blocking effects of mivacurium are greatly enhanced when mivacurium is preceded by a subparalyzing dose of pancuronium. The mechanism of this potentiation has not been elucidated. This study investigated the effects of the anticholinesterase activity of a small dose of pancuronium on the neuromuscular blocking effects of(More)
BACKGROUND Morphine-6-glucuronide (M-6-G), a major metabolite of morphine, is reported to be more potent than morphine when administered intrathecally; however, its efficiency remains under debate when administered intravenously. This study was designed to assess the analgesic efficiency of intravenous M-6-G for the treatment of acute postoperative pain. (More)
PURPOSE Muscle relaxants and anesthetics are usually associated during intubation. However, their relative role to facilitate the process is not clearly defined. This study was designed to determine, during intubation: i). the relative role of anesthetics and atracurium-induced neuromuscular block and; ii). the effect of different doses of propofol in the(More)
BACKGROUND ORG 9487 is a new steroidal nondepolarizing muscle relaxant with a rapid onset of action. This study was designed to determine the neuromuscular blocking profile of ORG 9487 at the adductor muscles of the larynx and the adductor pollicis. METHODS In 30 adults, anesthesia was induced with propofol (2-5 mg/kg) and fentanyl (2-3 microg/kg). After(More)
PURPOSE Postpartum hemorrhage affects 5% of parturients. Its prevention relies mainly on the administration of oxytocin derivatives. Carbetocin is a newly available analogue of oxytocin but has a considerable incidence of side effects. CLINICAL FEATURES We report the case of a woman with no cardiovascular risk factors experiencing an acute coronary(More)
