In this study we investigated whether the novel reversal drug, sugammadex, is equally effective at reversing rocuronium-induced neuromuscular block (NMB) in patients under propofol or sevoflurane maintenance anesthesia. After receiving propofol for induction, patients were randomized to propofol (n = 21) or sevoflurane (n = 21). Rocuronium 0.6 mg/kg was(More)
BACKGROUND Intraoperative rupture of a cerebral aneurysm can be a devastating event that increases operative morbidity and mortality. Rapid ventricular pacing (RVP) is a technique used in interventional cardiology to obtain flow arrest for short periods of time. OBJECTIVE To present our experience using RVP for flow arrest during cerebrovascular surgery.(More)
The F-wave latency of the deep peroneal nerve in function of leg length was determined in 66 normal persons and 25 diabetic patients with known polyneuropathy. The latencies were measured by stimulating the nerve at the ankle and recording the F-wave at the musculus extensor digitorum brevis using a needle electrode. The leg length was represented by the(More)
