 acupressure therapy on quality of recovery after surgeryBACKGROUND Acupressure therapy is associated with favourable efficacies on postoperative nausea, pain and sleep disturbance, although the quality of the evidence is generally low. No randomised clinical trial has yet assessed the effect of acupressure on postoperative quality of recovery (QoR). OBJECTIVE The objective was to study acupressure efficacy on patient-reported postoperative recovery. DESIGN We conducted a single centre, three-group,...

Can quantitative sensory tests predict failed back surgery?: A prospective cohort studyBACKGROUND Failed back surgery syndrome (FBSS) is a pain condition refractory to therapy, and is characterised by persistent low back pain after spinal surgery. FBSS is associated with severe disability, low quality of life and high unemployment. We are currently unable to identify patients who are at risk of developing FBSS. Patients with chronic low back pain may display signs of central hypersensitivity as assessed...

Tidal volume challenge to predict fluid responsiveness in the operating room: A prospective trial on neurosurgical patients undergoing protective ventilationBACKGROUND Pulse pressure variation (PPV) and stroke volume variation (SVV) do not predict fluid responsiveness when using a protective ventilation strategy: the use of functional haemodynamic tests can be useful to overcome this limitation. OBJECTIVES We tested the use of a tidal volume challenge (VTC), during 6 ml kg−1 [predicted body weight...

Propofol intravenous anaesthesia with desflurane compared with desflurane alone on postoperative liver function after living-donor liver transplantation: A randomised controlled trialBACKGROUND Propofol is an anaesthetic that resembles α-tocopherol and it has been suggested that it protects against ischaemia-reperfusion injury in liver transplantation. Living-donor liver transplantation (LDLT) presents an opportunity to test this hypothesis in both donors and recipients. OBJECTIVES We compared clinical...

Reintubation in the ICU following cardiac surgery: is it more difficult than first-time intubation in the operating room?: A prospective, observational studyBACKGROUND After cardiac surgery, a patient's trachea is usually extubated; however, 2 to 13% of cardiac surgery patients require reintubation in the ICU. OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to compare the initial intubation in the cardiac operating room with reintubation (if required) in the ICU following cardiac surgery. DESIGN A prospective,...
