Letter from the Editors
Dear colleagues, In the third issue of the Greek e-journal of Perioperative Medicine for 2023, there is a wide coverage of interest in scientific articles. Five interesting cases are reported, concerning perioperative medicine. First, the article of Walker C et al demonstrated the anesthetic technique of erector spinae plane blockade, as an alternative analgesic technique for aortic aneurysms endovascular repair. The authors noted that this blockade provides the same quality of pain c
Unilateral Erector Spinae Plane Block as Adjuvant for Open Repair of Thoracoabdominal Aortic Aneurysm: Case Report and Literature Review
Aortic aneurysms occur mainly due to atherosclerotic disease, and their conventional surgical repair is reserved for patients with anatomy unfavorable to endovascular repair. In this context, one of the challenges for the anesthesiologist is perioperative anesthetic-analgesic control.
Arterial Thrombosis after Nitrous Oxide Recreative Abuse: A Case Report
Nitrous oxide, also known as “laughing gas”, has been used for more than 150 years in medical practice, autonomously or in combination with other inhalation anesthetics, for pain relief, in various surgical interventions. In modern medicine, its use has declined, due to its side effects and also because of the advent of newer, shorter-acting agents and newer inhaled anesthetics.
Anaesthetic Management of a Parturient with Severe Preeclampsia and a History of Liver Transplantation: A Case Report and Short Literature Review.
Orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) has become a relatively safe procedure over the last decades, with reported 5-year survival rate of over 80%. Increasing numbers of patients will be transplated at a younger age and they will seek obstetric anaesthesia services, as their fertility is restored after succesful transplantation. In 1978, the first succesful pregnancy was reported.
Ketamine/Dexmedetomidine Combination for Monitor Anesthesia Care in a Child With Chronic Graft-VS-Host Bronchiolitis Obliterans: A Case Report-Based Literature Review.
Graft-versus-host obstructive bronchiolitis, in pediatric patients, is a relatively common respiratory complication of chronic graft-versus-host disease, after allogeneic bone marrow transplant. It is irreversible, chronic and potentially life-threatening condition.
