BACKGROUND Over the past number of years, N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) inhibitory drugs, like ketamine, have been introduced as adjuvant treatments for postoperative acute pain, within a multimodal approach. A further extension of this strategy could be the use of opioids with NMDA receptor (NMDAr) antagonism activity for control of postoperative pain. Methadone has a unique pharmacodynamic profile: it is both a μ-agonist and an NMDAr-blocker. OBJECTIVE We designed this study to investigate the p...

Italy was the first Western country to face the COVID-19 pandemic. Here we report the results of a national�survey on kidney transplantation activity in February and March 2020, and the results of a three-round Delphi consensus promoted by four scientific societies: the Italian Society of Organ Transplantation, the Italian Society of Nephrology, the Italian Society of Anesthesia and Intensive Care, and the Italian Group on Antimicrobial Stewardship. All 41 Italian transplant centers were invited...

The current COVID-19 pandemic challenges oncologists to profoundly re-organize oncological care in order to dramatically reduce hospital visits and admissions and therapy-induced immune-related complications without compromising cancer outcomes. Since COVID-19 is a novel disease, guidance by scientific evidence is often unavailable, and impactful decisions are inevitably made on the basis of expert opinions. Here we report how the seven comprehensive cancer centers of Cancer Core Europe have org...

BACKGROUND: Outcomes after transplantation of lungs (LuTX) treated with Ex-Vivo Lung Perfusion (EVLP) are debated. METHODS: In a single-center 8-years retrospective analysis we compared: donors' and recipients' characteristics, gas exchange and lung mechanics at ICU admission, 3, 6 and 12 months, and patients survival of LuTX from Standard donors compared to EVLP treated grafts. RESULTS: 193 LuTX were performed. Thirty-one LuTX, out of 50 EVLP procedures, were carried-out: 7 from non-heart-beati...

Abstract Background cytoreduction surgery (CRS) and heated intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) is currently the standard of care for some peritoneal surface malignancies. There is experimental evidence supporting that high Intra Abdominal Pressure (IAP) during HIPEC could enhance the uptake of drugs by tumor tissues. However, few papers are describing the hemodynamic and respiratory effects of increased IAP during HIPEC. Aims to evaluate the hemodynamic and respiratory association with differen...
