  • [Intraoperative management for two patients with malignant tumors in the neck]. [Case Reports]
    Masui 2004; 53(3):273-6Chiba S, Yokota M
  • We experienced two cases of malignant tumors in the neck with difficulties in airway control. In case 1, difficult airway was anticipated from the CT scan taken before the operation, but the glottis was observed easily by using laryngoscope. Therefore we judged intubation easy and rapid induction was performed, but the tube did not go in farther. When we pushed it in bleeding made the ventilation…
  • Droperidol inhibits GABA(A) and neuronal nicotinic receptor activation. [Journal Article]
    Anesthesiology 2002; 96(4):987-93Flood P, Coates KM
  • CONCLUSIONS: Droperidol inhibits activation of both the GABAA alpha1beta1gamma2 and alpha7 nAChR. The submaximal GABA inhibition occurs within a concentration range such that it might be responsible for the anxiety, dysphoria, and restlessness that limit the clinical utility of high-dose droperidol anesthesia. Inhibition of the alpha7 nAChR might be responsible for the anesthetic action of droperidol.
  • Neuroleptanesthesia: current status. [Review]
    Can J Anaesth 1999; 46(2):154-68Bissonnette B, Swan H, … Un V
  • CONCLUSIONS: The advantages of newer anesthetic agents have redefined the clinical indications for neuroleptanesthesia. In routine modern anesthesia, anxiolysis, sedation, and/or analgesia is better provided, with quicker recovery, by the new pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic characteristics of recent medications than by the neuroleptic component of neuroleptanesthesia.
