  • Anaesthesia for VP Shunt Surgery

    • Authors: Summit Dev Bloria, Pallavi Bloria, Ketan Kataria
      Pages: 1 - 3

      VP Shunt is one of the most commonly performed neurological surgeries.The patients undergoing this procedure may vary in age from neonates to elderly; they may be fully conscious or neurologically impaired. Knowledge of specific considerations of these patients will help the anesthesiologist to manage these patients in a better way.

  • To Study the Effect of Beta Antagonist Esmolol on Bispectral Index and Arm
           Movement During Intubation

      Background and Aims: Bispectral index response(BIS) reflects cerebral cortical activity and is an important pharmacodynamic parameter of anaesthetic effects on central nervous system. The prospective double blinded controlled study was undertaken to study effect of beta-1 antagonist esmolol on BIS, arm movement during intubation. Methods: Fifty adult patients aged 18 to 60 years scheduled for elective non-cardiac, non-cranial surgery surgery under general anaesthesia were undertaken for the study. Randomisation was done using closed envelope method. Data was analysed with Stat-View (Version 18, SPSS). Chi-square test was used to compare percentage of patients with arm movement. Results: Demographic variables age, weight, intubation duration, sex had P-value greater than 0.05. Arm movement was observed in 40% of patients in Esmolol group against 84% patients in Control group. T-value was below 0.05. Conclusion: Addition of esmolol leads to attenuation of haemodynamic, arm movements and BIS increase in response to intubation.

  • Lamellar Ichthyosis; An Uncommon Acquaintance with Anesthesiologists:
           Overcoming Barriers

      Lamellar ichthyosis constitutes a distinct group of inherited ichthyosis characterized by excessive scaling and dryness. Abnormalities in epidermal differentiation and metabolism contribute to excessive keratinization, which is a hallmark of this disorder. We present here the successful anesthetic management of a 13-year-old boy with lamellar ichthyosis for the correction of Genu Valgum deformity.

  • Retrograde Cerebral Venous Gas Embolism: Could it be Possible?

      Air embolism is well-known but uncommon and cerebral venous gas embolism (CVGE) is even more so because it goes unnoticed in an anaesthetized patient, especially where slow entrainment of small amounts of air takes place over a period of time. A young American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) status I patient underwent a lumbar spine surgery and presented in the post anaesthesia care unit (PACU) with seizures. Common causes of generalised tonic clonic seizures were ruled out and cerebral hypoperfusion as a result of retrograde CVGE was the retrospective diagnosis of exclusion. The patient developed retrograde CVGE in the absence of any intracardiac septal defect or patent foramen ovale. The prone positioning along with the anatomy of the valveless vertebral plexus of veins plays an important role in the development of retrograde CVGE. A high index of suspicion and awareness is warranted from anaesthesiologists so as not to delay diagnosis and treatment of this rare entity.

      Anesthetic management of patients with mediastinal masses remains a formidable challenge as acute cardiorespiratory decompensation may follow induction of anesthesia. In endemic goiter areas, 20% of the population over the age of 70 will have a retrosternal goiter. This group of patients is heterogeneous with respect to the clinical evolution as well as with their various types, sizes, and location of masses. The vital organs in the limited mediastinal space may be affected in different ways. Therefore, the respiratory and hemodynamic responses to anesthesia may vary among individuals. There are sporadic case reports which illustrate acute cardiorespiratory decompensation during the course of anesthesia due to tumor-related compression of mediastinal organs, resulting in life-threatening conditions and even fatal outcomes. We describe the anesthetic management of a patient with multinodular goiter with retrosternal and mediastinal extension posted for total thyroidectomy, who was successfully managed with a double-lumen endotracheal tube.

      Early detection and management of pulmonary embolism would ameliorate survival chances. Here, we report the case of a patient who was scheduled for a renal carcinoma and inferior vena cava thrombectomy wherein suddenly the thrombus migrated to the pulmonary artery. The problem was rapidly recognized by transesophageal echocardiography and before a fatal hemodynamic instability cardiopulmonary bypass was instituted and the thrombosis was extracted. The patient was discharged a week after the surgery without any complication.
