A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Purpose Adductor canal block (ACB) provides postoperative pain relief as effectively as femoral nerve block (FNB) does, and it preserves the strength of the quadriceps femoris. However, its effect on rehabilitation after arthroscopic partial meniscectomy has not been reported. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of pre-operative A...
Studies have established that oxidative stress plays an important role in the pathology of myocardial ischemia/reperfusion injury (MIRI). Vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 1 (VEGFR1) activation was reported to reduce oxidative stress and apoptosis. In the present study, we tested the hypothesis that the activation of VEGFR1 by placental g...
Rationale: Primary tracheal adenoid cystic carcinoma of the trachea primary is a rare neoplasm and commonly misdiagnosed. Lung isolation during surgery and ventilation pose a tremendous challenge to anesthesiologists. Patient concerns: The authors describe a novel technique of lung isolation and ventilation with a Univent tube during thoracoscop...
Background The Quality of Recovery-15 (QoR-15) is a patient-centered questionnaire to evaluate the recovery after surgery and anesthesia. Dexmedetomidine has sedative, analgesic, antiinflammatory and inhibitory sympathetic effects, which may contribute to early recovery. We hypothesized dexmedetomidine added to intravenous patient-controlled analge...
Remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPC) may attenuate acute kidney injury (AKI). However, results of studies evaluating the effect of RIPC on AKI after cardiac surgery have been controversial and contradictory. The aim of this meta-analysis is to examine the association between RIPC and AKI after on-pump cardiac surgery. The authors searched relevan...
