12/01/2013 - "The key findings were: Double-lumen tube is still the first choice lung separation technique in current use; pressure-controlled ventilation and volume-controlled ventilation modes are homogenously distributed across the sample and, a tidal volumes (VT) of 4-6 mL/kg during OLV was preferred to all others; moderate or restrictive fluid management were the most used strategies of fluid administration in thoracic anesthesia; thoracic epidural analgesia represented the "gold standard" for post-thoracotomy pain relief in combination with intravenous analgesia. "
06/01/2011 - "Nerve block anesthesia at the wrist before palmar injection is preferred by patients and is highly effective in preventing pain associated with injection of the palmar hand for trigger finger and other painful hand procedures."
06/01/2007 - "If the woman is anxious and fears pain (as most nulliparous women do), probably the most convenient, safe and effective method is to use local (intracervical) anesthesia using a dental syringe which can be applied with minimal risk in the office. "
05/01/2005 - "Complication data revealed several significant features: (1) resection weight correlated with increased risk and absolute number of complications; (2) delayed healing correlated directly with resection weight and inversely with increasing age, anesthesia times, and preoperative Short Form-36 bodily pain score; (3) a vertical incision may be associated with increased incidence of complications but requires further analysis; and most importantly, (4) the presence of complications had no negative effect on improvement in Short Form-36 and Multidimensional Body-Self Relations Questionnaire scores."
