Anesthetic and Post-operative Pain Management

  title={Anesthetic and Post-operative Pain Management},
  author={Jessica K Goeller and Leelach Rothschild},
Patients with osteogenesis imperfecta, especially the moderate to severe types, require frequent surgical intervention. Anesthetic management and post-operative pain management benefit from careful preparation and a multimodal analgesic approach. Perioperative challenges that are of primary concern for anesthesiologists include airway challenges, intravenous catheter placement challenges, neuraxial and regional anesthesia placement difficulty, and significant intraoperative blood loss… 


Perioperative Management of Pediatric Patients with Osteogenesis Imperfecta Undergoing Orthopedic Procedures
Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is a predominantly autosomal dominant inherited condition involving connective tissue associated with not only bone fragility, but multi-system involvement with
Basilar impression and osteogenesis imperfecta: a 21-year retrospective review of outcomes in 20 patients.
Aggressive ventral decompression surgery and dorsal stabilization for patients with BI secondary to OI can not only halt disease progression but can also produce a good and sustainable long-term functional outcome, even in those patients who present as severely symptomatic.
Intraoperative bleeding in patients with osteogenesis imperfecta type III treated by Fassier–Duval femoral rodding: analysis of risk factors
The number of osteotomies, the patient’s age and the intake of bisphosphonates for at least 1 year seem to be the best predictive factors for blood loss in patients affected by OI type III undergoing surgical procedures.
Anaesthesia for children with osteogenesis imperfecta – a review covering 30 years and 266 anaesthetics
The concept that malignant hyperpyrexia is an associated condition is refuted although these patients may have an increased metabolic rate and a tendency to pyrexia.
Local Anesthetic Systemic Toxicity (LAST): Not Gone, Hopefully Not Forgotten
The rate reported by Liu et al is extremely low but there are two distinct challenges to a clinically meaningful interpretation of rates of LAST: recognizing limitations of the statistics and understanding how they impact clinical practice.

Osteogenesis imperfecta is the collective term for a heterogeneous group of connective tissue syndromes characterized by bone fragility with multisystem involvement and perioperative implications.

Use of TXA in patients undergoing surgery for adolescent idiopathic scoliosis significantly reduced blood loss, by 27%, compared with that in the placebo group.
Safety of antifibrinolytics in cranial vault reconstructive surgery: a report from the pediatric craniofacial collaborative group
Antifibrinolytic therapy significantly decreases blood loss and transfusion in pediatric cranial vault reconstructive surgery; however, concern regarding the side effects profile limits clinical use.
Haemostatic studies in osteogenesis imperfecta.
The tourniquet test is the most valuable screening test of the haemostatic defects observed in OI, with the combination of vascular, platelet related and plasmatic defects reflecting that OI is a heterogeneous group of disorders with common clinical expression.
