Metabolic Alkalosis Associated Fluid and Electrolyte Disorders Revealing an Upper Digestive Tract Condition

Ameth Dieng, M. A. Ba, A. T. Lemrabott, M. Diop, A. Sy, M. Ndongo, B. Ndiaye, M. S. Diawara, M. Faye, Mo Faye, B. Ba, N. Keita, S. Diagne, M. M. Cissé
We report a case of a 66-year-old female patient with ischemic cardiomyopathy, who was referred in Nephrology Department for the management of a renal impairment associated-severe hyponatremia, hypokalemia and hypochloremia that occurred after vomiting episodes evolving since 1 month. On admission, the patient was calm with a psychomotor retardation occurring in a context of moderate dehydration. Arterial blood gas analysis outlined a severe metabolic alkalosis. An extra-renal cause of these met...

The Neural Pathways for the Hypothetic Nociceptive-Sympathetic Coupling of NBA for Pain Sensation

Zi-Jian Cai
In May 2016, it was suggested by the US athletes playing games of National Basketball Association (NBA) in television that the pain sensation might result from the post-sensory nociceptive-sympathetic coupling. In this re-view, it is attempted to newly delineate the underlying neural pathways for this post-sensory nociceptive-sympathetic coupling. Based on the con-temporary feedback neural circuits of pain transmission in spinal c

Systemic Thrombolysis for Intraoperative, High Risk Pulmonary Embolism, Clinical Case

Anna Grzanka, Pilar Reboto, Alfredo Plaza, Patricia Gaite
A 68-year-old woman with intercondylar fracture of the femur suffers massive (high risk) pulmonary embolism (PE) during surgery and is suc-cessfully treated with systemic thrombolysis. After limb exsanguinations with Esmarch bandage, the patient presents with sudden oxygen desaturation (99% to 80%) with subsequent dyspnea and hypotension. She is intubated and requires continuous adrenalin perfusion while the surgery is finished an

A Clinical Triad of Digital Clubbing, “Arthritis” and Ossifying Periostitis in a Man: Case Report

Chun-Ruh Ng, Yet-Lin Loh
A 49 year old gentleman presented with intermittent bilateral knee swelling for the past 37 years and was eventually diagnosed as primary hypertrophic osteoarthropathy after secondary forms were excluded. This case illustrates that the disease can present during childhood with an insidious onset and progressively become more severe and that is when medical attention is sought. Furthermore, the patient did not voluntarily report hi

Anesthetic Management of Nasopharyngeal Angiofibroma Resection with Carotid Invasion in a Pediatric Patient

Julia Reich Camasmie, Michele Cristianini, Rafael Moura, Claudia Biasi, Carlos Darcy Bersot
The nasopharyngeal angiofibroma is an aggressive, vascular tumor that may represent a challenge for the anesthesiologist by the risk of profuse bleeding. We report the case of a 13 years old, 52 kg, ASA1, who was scheduled for the resection of an angiofibroma invading facial sinuses and internal carotid artery, and submitted to external carotid and internal maxillary arteries embolization one day before surgery. Mallampati 2, prev

Guillain Barre and Anesthesia— Intraoperative Disaster?

Omonele O. Nwokolo, Semhar J. Ghebremichael, Sara Guzman-Reyes
This is the case of a 76 y/o AA man with a past medical history of Hypertension and Guillain Barre Syndrome (GBS), who presented for a median sternotomy and excision of a thymic mass after workup for multiple episodes of syncope revealed the thymic mass. Intraoperatively, the patient had 2 episodes of cardiac arrest with asystole. He was adequately resuscitated and extubated. He was later determined by Neurology to have severe autonomic dysfunction and not a candidate for any elective surgery.

Persistent Epidural Fluid at the Cervical Spine Level, Lessons from Radiology

Madhumani N. Rupasingh, Naveen Vanga, Aseem R. Hemmad, Sonya A. Johnson
Following an accidental dural puncture during the placement of epidural anesthesia, leakage of cerebrospinal fluid occurs. This leads to tugging on intracranial pain-sensitive structures and causes a headache that is postural in nature. According to radiology literature, the presence of retro spinal fluid collections has been associated with the diagnosis of spontaneous intracranial hypotension. The characteristic C1-C2 radiographic sign, called the C1-C2 false localizing sign, can be found on m...

A Short Report of the First Use of Catheter-over-Needle System (Contiplex®C) for Continuous Peripheral Nerve Block Placement in Children in the UK

Shu Ying Lee, Peter C. Murphy
Continuous peripheral nerve blocks (CPNB) are gaining popularity in paediatric practice owing to its superiority over neuraxial blocks in terms of side effects. The advent of ultrasound and development of new materials have made CPNBs feasible even in children, facilitating early ambulation, effective and prolonged post-operative analgesia. The usual perineural catheter sets we have used are “ca- theter through needle” types. The inability to fix and locate the catheter position after threading ...
