The use of transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) in the operating room and intensive care unit can provide invaluable information on cardiac as well as abdominal organ structures and function. This approach may be particularly useful when the transabdominal ultrasound examination is not possible during intraoperative procedures or for anatomical reasons. This review explores the role of transgastric abdominal ultrasonography (TGAUS) in perioperative medicine. We describe several reported applic...

Introduction null The number of elderly patients undergoing major surgery is rapidly increasing. They are particularly at risk of developing postoperative neurocognitive disorders (NCD). Earlier studies suggested that processed electroencephalographic (EEG) monitors may reduce the incidence of postoperative NCD. However, none of these studies controlled for intraoperative nociception levels or personalized blood pressure targets. Their results remain unclear if the reduction in the incidence of ...

In 1959, Niels Lassen illustrated the cerebral autoregulation curve in the classic review article entitled Cerebral Blood Flow and Oxygen Consumption in Man. This concept suggested a relatively broad mean arterial pressure range (~60-150 mmHg) wherein cerebral blood flow remains constant. However, the assumption that this wide cerebral autoregulation plateau could be applied on a within-individual basis is incorrect and greatly variable between individuals. Indeed, each data point on the autoreg...

PURPOSE Hypotension is common following spinal anesthesia (SA) during elective Cesarean delivery (CD). Although common practice is to alleviate inferior vena cava (IVC) compression, limited evidence supports a 15° tilt for CD. We measured collapsibility of the IVC in supine and 15° left lateral tilt positions with ultrasound before and after SA and phenylephrine infusion in term parturients. METHODS Twenty term parturients scheduled for CD were recruited for this prospective study. Ultrasound me...

Summary Background Evidence suggests a role for excessive inflammation in COVID-19 complications. Colchicine is an oral anti-inflammatory medication beneficial in gout, pericarditis, and coronary disease. We aimed to investigate the effect of colchicine on the composite of COVID-19-related death or hospital admission. Methods The present study is a phase 3, randomised, double-blind, adaptive, placebo-controlled, multicentre trial. The study was done in Brazil, Canada, Greece, South Africa, Spain...

ABSTRACT Background Right ventricular outflow tract obstruction (RVOTO) is a cause of hemodynamic instability that can occur in several situations including cardiac surgery, lung transplantation, thoracic surgery, and in critically ill patients. The timely diagnosis of RVOTO is important because it requires specific considerations, including the adverse effects of positive inotropes and, depending on the etiology, the requirement for urgent surgical intervention. Methods The objective of this sy...

Abstract In this report, the clinical evolution of a 72-year-old patient transferred to the surgical intensive care unit following cardiac surgery is described. The presence of a pulsatile Doppler signal of the common femoral vein was noted following surgery. On post-operative day five, diuretics in addition to combination of inhaled epoprostenol and milrinone were associated with normalization of femoral vein pulsatility. The observations seen in peripheral venous flow reinforce the hypothesis ...

Abstract Cerebral and somatic near-infrared spectroscopy monitors are commonly used to detect tissue oxygenation in various circumstances. This form of monitoring is based on tissue infrared absorption and can be influenced by several physiological and non-physiological factors that can induce error in the interpretation. This narrative review explores those clinical and technical limitations and proposes solutions and alternatives in order to avoid some of those pitfalls.
