Abstract Introduction Epidural analgesia is considered the preferred analgesic choice during labour. Post dural puncture headache (PDPH) is considered a potential complication of this analgesic technique and is a frequently hypothesis for any headache occurring after delivery. It is essential that anaesthetists and obstetricians are familiar with other possible differential diagnosis for postpartum headache (PPH). Case description 37-year-old female presented after delivery with intense occipita...

INTRODUCTION: Regional anesthesia techniques were recently introduced to provide analgesia for breast surgery. These techniques are rarely used as the primary anesthesia due to the complexity of breast innervation, with numerous structures that can potentially be disrupted during breast surgery. CASE REPORT: A female patient in her sixties diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma on her left breast was scheduled for a simple mastectomy. After anesthetic evaluation, identification of high risk pe...
Resumen Introduccion Se han introducido recientemente tecnicas de anestesia regional, para aportar analgesia en la cirugia de mama. Dichas tecnicas son raramente utilizadas como anestesia primaria, debido a la complejidad de la inervacion de la mama, con numerosas estructuras que pueden verse potencialmente alteradas durante la cirugia. Caso clinico Paciente femenino de unos 70 anos con diagnostico de carcinoma ductal invasivo en la mama izquierda, programada para mastectomia simple. Tras la eva...

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) refers to the respiratory tract infection caused by the newly emergent coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. The present pandemic, declared on the 11th of March 2020, was first recognized in Wuhan city, and rapidly spread throughout China and other countries, including Portugal. Regional anesthesia should be considered whenever surgery is planned for a patient with suspected or confirmed COVID-19, as it minimizes not only airway management, the intervention with the highest...

Background and objectives The gold standard for the treatment of postdural puncture headache (PDPH) is the epidural blood patch (EBP). Regional techniques—sphenopalatine ganglion block (SPGB), greater occipital nerve block (GONB) and trigger point infiltration (TPI)—can also be used for the treatment of PDPH. Our objective was to evaluate the efficacy of these peripheral nerve blocks (PNBs) in the treatment of PDPH. Methods A retrospective study was conducted including all patients with PDPH in ...

The adequate titration of hypnotic agents can be achieved using processed electroencephalogram (pEEG) monitors. pEEG monitors with a spectrogram, such as bilateral bispectral index (BIS), are useful because they can show different signatures that suggest the effect of a given drug on brain activity. Multimodal general anesthesia is based on a combination of hypnotic and antinociceptive agents. We report a case of awareness in a patient monitored with bilateral BIS during multimodal general anest...
