Interscalene block, general anesthesia, or intravenous analgesia alone are applied procedures that facilitate shoulder reduction by the surgeon and ease patients’ pain. This study was conducted to compare procedure times, patient satisfaction, side-effects, and...

The F Breathing Circuit, a universal single-limb breathing circuit: brief historical perspective

This article presents a brief historical perspective of the F Breathing Circuit, a universal single-limb breathing circuit. The single-limb breathing circuit (tube within a tube configuration) comprises two tubes of sufficient size and compliance, so that either channel enables safe, unrestricted inspiration/expiration at all times in spontaneous and controlled ventilation. The...

Handover of anesthesia care is associated with an increased risk of delirium in elderly after major noncardiac surgery: results of a secondary analysis

The purpose of this study was to explore the association between the intraoperative complete handover between anesthesiologists and the occurrence of postoperative delirium. This was a...

The effect of anesthetic technique on µ-opioid receptor expression and immune cell infiltration in breast cancer

BackgroundClinical histological studies demonstrate that the distribution of natural killer (NK) cells, other immune cells and μ-opioid receptors (MOR) within cancer tissue can predict cancer prognosis. No clinical study has evaluated whether anesthetic technique influences immune cell and MOR expression within human breast cancer.MethodsExcised preoperative biopsies and...
