  • Is Europe Facing an Emerging Opioid Crisis Comparable to the U.S.? [Journal Article]
    Ther Drug Monit. 2020 Jul 06 [Online ahead of print]van Amsterdam J, Pierce M, van den Brink W
  • In the U.S., an opioid overdose crisis has emerged, attributable to over-prescription of opioid analgesics, driven by aggressive marketing by pharmaceutical companies, followed by surging heroin overdose deaths, and more recently, by the high mortality rates predominately due to illicitly manufactured fentanyl and analogs of fentanyl. In Europe, the use of prescription opioids for pain management…
  • The "ART" of Facial Filler Injections: Avoid, Recognize and Treat Hyaluronic Acid-induced Complications. [Journal Article]
    J Cosmet Dermatol. 2020 Jul 10 [Online ahead of print]Zeltzer A, Geeroms M, … Hamdi M
  • Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers are frequently used for cosmetic purposes as volumizers or as wrinkle fillers. One of the major advantages of hyaluronic acid use is the possibility to neutralize it by using hyaluronidase should complications occur. A case of a 21-year old female patient is presented, in whom a hyaluronic acid injection-induced vascular occlusion was seen four days after the initial …
  • Patients' views on end-of-life practices that hasten death: a qualitative study exploring ethical distinctions. [Journal Article]
    Ann Palliat Med. 2020 Jun 24 [Online ahead of print]Young JE, Winters J, … Egan R
  • CONCLUSIONS: This article contributes to what is known about how patients perceive end-of-life practices that potentially hasten death. There is a divide in what medical ethics and most health professionals and what some patients consider active hastening death. Participants' perspective was consistent with a consequentialist framework whereas deontology often guides medical ethics at the end of life. Participants' challenge to the interpretation of legal end-of-life practices as AD represents an epistemic contest to the foundation of medical knowledge, authority and ethics and therefore carries implications for preferences in care, communication and palliative care practice.
  • Continuous Paravertebral Nerve Block for Scapula Fracture Analgesia: A Case Report. [Journal Article]
    A A Pract. 2020 Jun; 14(8):e01245.Curran BP, Phillips CR, … Finneran JJ
  • A 46-year-old man presented with severe refractory posterior shoulder pain due to a left scapular fracture sustained during a motor vehicle collision. Despite multimodal oral and intravenous analgesics, the patient's pain remained difficult to control. A continuous paravertebral nerve block was performed between the second and third thoracic vertebrae resulting in excellent analgesia of the scapu…
  • Regional Anesthesia in Neuroanesthesia Practice. [Review]
    Discoveries (Craiova). 2020 Jun 29; 8(2):e111.Kaushal A, Haldar R
  • Regional anesthesia has been an undervalued entity in neuroanesthetic practice. However, in the past few years, owing to the development of more advanced techniques, drugs and the prolific use of ultrasound guidance, the unrecognised potential of these modalities have been highlighted. These techniques confer the advantages of reduced requirements for local anesthetics, improved hemodynamic stabi…
  • The Role of Pudendal Nerve Block in Colorectal Surgery: A Systematic Review. [Journal Article]
    J Invest Surg. 2020 Jul 07 [Online ahead of print]Fadel MG, Peltola L, … Kontovounisios C
  • CONCLUSIONS: The current evidence, though limited, supports the use of bilateral PNBs in colorectal surgical procedures in particular hemorrhoidectomies. PNBs can be safe and effective in improving patient outcomes particularly when using bupivacaine or lidocaine with either the anatomical landmark or neurostimulation technique.
  • Chronic pain after groin hernia repair: pain characteristics and impact on quality of life. [Journal Article]
    BMC Surg. 2020 Jul 06; 20(1):147.Bande D, Moltó L, … Montes A
  • CONCLUSIONS: CPSP affects QoL-related activities, and although it diminishes over the course of 2 years after surgery, many patients continue to have moderate/intense pain and take analgesics. CPSP and neuropathic pain rates seem to be similar after mesh and non-mesh repair. BPI and SF-12 mental component scores detect effects on QoL.
