Orthognathic surgery

This study was performed to investigate whether preemptive multimodal analgesia could be obtained in patients undergoing SSRO. However, the effects of preemptive multimodal analgesia were not confirmed in SSRO patients with the current protocol. There were no significant differences between the 2 groups either in […]

The 2 groups were similar in sex, age, weight, and duration of surgery (Table 1). There were no significant differences between the 2 groups in POPI scores at FWI (3 hours after extubation) or at 24, 48, and 72 hours after extubation except for those recorded in the PACU (1 hour after extubation) (Figures 1 and 2). There were 33 patients in group P and 34 patients in group С […]

We studied 82 patients undergoing SSRO for mandibular protrusion or retrusion. All patients were classified Patients were randomly allocated either to a preemptive multimodal analgesia group (group P, n = 41) or to a control group (group C, n = 41). Subjects in both groups received 10 ixgAg of atropine sulfate and 0.06 mgAg of midazolam intramuscularly 30 minutes before induction of anesthesia. Lactated Ringer’s solution was infused intravenously at […]

Maxillofacial surgery

Recent advances in postoperative pain management have brought about the concept of preemptive analgesia. The basis of this concept is that, if certain analgesics are administered before the onset of the surgical stimulus, postoperative pain can be prevented or markedly reduced. To induce preemptive analgesia, the pain hypersensitivity has to […]

An outline of the patients and their preoperative data, preoperative complications, and surgical procedure are given in Table 1. The EMG input and impedance were significantly higher in the IVS group (EMG, 40.3 ± 8.8 dB; impedance, 8032 ± 1237ft; n = 7) than the GA group (EMG, 31.5 ± 9.5 dB; impedance, 4021 ± 1828 ft; n = 7). The SQI and the percentage of “good” EEGs (EEG satisfying […]

The Feasibility of Bispectral Index Monitoring DISCUSSIONThe benefits of bispectral index monitoring include improvement in regulation of anesthesia and reduction of anesthetic dose. We have described the usefulness of bispectral index monitoring in oral surgery under general anesthesia. The aim of the present study was to investigate […]

We randomly recruited 14 patients of American Society of Anesthesiologists’ classification I and II about to undergo oral surgery or dental treatment requiring less than 5 hours under general anesthesia (GA group, n = 7) or intravenous sedation (IVS group, n = 7) at the Nihon University School of Dentistry Hospital in Japan. Approval was granted by local institutional ethics committee, and written informed consent was obtained from all participants.
