Διαταραχές κατάποσης μετά από παρατεταμένο μηχανικό αερισμό σε ασθενείς της Μονάδας Εντατικής Θεραπείας

Post-extubation dysphagia (PED) is a common complication in ICU patients and it worsens their prognosis and quality of their life after their discharge from the ICU. This pathologic condition is independently associated with adverse patient outcomes and high-risk patients should be early recognized, because this situation can lead to aspiration pneumonia. The underlying pathophysiology of dysphagia is multifactorial. A team consisted of doctors, nurses, dietologists, speech therapists and physical therapists should deal with the situation. Flexible endoscopic evaluation of swallowing...

A case-based literature synthesis of extreme hyperferritinemia in critically ill patients with COVID-19

COVID-19 has brought up the interest about hyperferritinemic syndromes.  Though often seen in COVID-19, especially within the frame of COVID-CSS, hyperferritinemia needs a systematic diagnostic approach, as co-infections or other causes may also increase ferritin. In this article, we present a case report of extreme hyperferrinemia in an male criticall ill patient with COVID-19 and we perform a short synthesis of the available literature.

Anesthesiology considerations during an orthopedic surgery in a child with Friedreich’s Ataxia: A Case Report Περισσότερα >

Anesthesiology considerations during an orthopedic surgery in a child with Friedreich’s Ataxia: A Case Report

Friedreich’s ataxia is an autosomal recessive inherited neurodegenerative ataxic condition that is often accompanied with multiple comorbidities like scoliosis, cardiac myopathies, diabetes mellitus, abnormal reflexes, dysarthria and it is a challenging task for the anesthesia providers in regards to the pharmacologic, physiologic, and pathologic effects that would occur with this disorder. We present a case report of a 10-year-old male child who was scheduled for a Galeazzi fracture surgery.

Status epilepticus and topiramate induced metabolic acidosis in a patient with multiple sclerosis under natalizumab therapy. Περισσότερα >

Status epilepticus and topiramate induced metabolic acidosis in a patient with multiple sclerosis under natalizumab therapy.

Therapy armamentarium for multpile sclerosis include a variety of drugs. Natalizumab, a humanized antibody, is widely used in relapsing-remissing multiple sclerosis. Anticonvulsants, like topiramate, are also widely used for symptomatic relief. We hereby describe a case of Status epilepticus and topiramate induced metabolic acidosis in a female patient with multiple sclerosis under natalizumab therapy.

 

Dear colleagues,

The second issue of the Greek e-journal of Perioperative Medicine for 2021 presents various articles including a Medical History Article, a Review Article, and Case Reports concerning perioperative medicine.

The medical history article of Aledzhanov N. Yu reviews the knowledge of anatomy and treatment of venous pathology in ancient Greece and Byzantium. It also describes the methods and techniques used and their influence on the birth of phlebology.

The review article of Ioannidis R et al. reviews post-extubation dysphagia (PED), which is a common complication in ICU patients and is associated with severe adverse patient outcomes. It is noted that screening ICU protocols can lead to an early identification and proper therapeutic interventions.

The following case report of Aslanidis Th et al. presents a case of extreme hyperferrinemia in a male criticall ill patient with COVID-19 along with a short synthesis of the available literature.

The next article of Sarakatsanou Ch et al. describes the anesthetic considerations and management of a child with Friedreich’s ataxia during orthopedic surgery. It is reported that although there are various approaches to anesthesia techniques for these patients, it is preferable to choose regional and neuraxial anesthesia techniques in order to reduce pulmonary and cardiac compromise.

The final article of Aslanidis Th et al. presents a case of a female patient with multiple sclerosis who had suffered from unexpected complications of two drugs arisen at the same time, a Status Epilepticus and topiramate induced metabolic acidosis in under natalizumab therapy.

Finally, we would like to thank you for your continued support on the Greek e-journal of Perioperative Medicine during these challenging times.
