  1. The efficacy of ultrasound-guided oblique subcostal transversus abdominis plane block in patients undergoing open cholecystectomy

    The efficacy of ultrasound-guided oblique subcostal transversus abdominis plane block in patients undergoing open cholecystectomy

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia
    Background: Ultrasound-guided oblique subcostal transversus abdominis plane (TAP) blockade has been described recently as providing a wider analgesic blockade than the posterior approach, with the possibility of being suitable for surgery both superior and inferior to the umbilicus. The objective...
  2. Spatial variation of soil and plant properties and its effects on the statistical design of a field experiment

    Spatial variation of soil and plant properties and its effects on the statistical design of a field experiment

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    The standard procedure in field experimentation is to use a randomized complete block (RCB) design, striving for the most homogeneous conditions as possible among plots in the same block. However, geostatistical concepts dictate that a spatial dependence exists for observations...
  3. Beacons in the limnological landscape

    Beacons in the limnological landscape

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Aquatic Science
    An overview is given of a number of major developments in the limnology of South Africa, Zimbabwe and Namibia. None was possible without the involvement of enthusiastic investigators who, over some 70 years, stimulated the growth of freshwater research in...
  4. Attenuation of the haemodynamic response to placement of the Mayfield skull pin head holder: alfentanil versus scalp block

    Attenuation of the haemodynamic response to placement of the Mayfield skull pin head holder: alfentanil versus scalp block

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia
    Introduction: Application of the Mayfield clamp causes a significant haemodynamic response. Different methods have been used to attenuate this response. We compared two of these methods, namely alfentanil bolus (Group A) and nerve block of the scalp (Group B). METHOD:...
  5. Cervical plexus block for thyroidectomy

    Cervical plexus block for thyroidectomy

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia
    Objective: Thyroidectomy is traditionally performed under general anaesthesia with endotracheal intubation. However, cervical plexus block has also been found useful for this operation in some parts of the world. This particular anaesthetic option has never been reported in our environment...
  6. Rabies vaccine and neuraxial anaesthesia

    Rabies vaccine and neuraxial anaesthesia

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia
    This case report of neuraxial anaesthesia for emergency orthopaedic surgery serves to highlight the dilemma faced by anaesthetists when surgical intervention becomes necessary in a patient on anti-rabies vaccine. The two issues of importance are the possible reduction in the...
  7. Case study: Managing a case of ankylosing spondylitis for inguinal hernia repair

    Case study: Managing a case of ankylosing spondylitis for inguinal hernia repair

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia
    A 55-year-old man diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis presented for inguinal hernia repair. The patient was found to have limited neck movement, thoracic kyphosis and restrictive lung disease. Surgery was performed under hernia block, which was inadequate. General anaesthesia was then...
  8. The management of postoperative pain in children with caudal blocks

    The management of postoperative pain in children with caudal blocks

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia
    Background: The aim of this study was to evaluate the pre-emptive analgesic effect and duration of postoperative analgesia after caudal blocks in children.
  9. Transient aphasia following spinal anaesthesia in an orthopaedic patient

    Transient aphasia following spinal anaesthesia in an orthopaedic patient

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia
    A 50-year-old male [American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) grade II] was scheduled for lower limb orthopaedic surgery. The subarachnoid space was localised with difficulty at L3/4 interspace and 3 ml of hyperbaric bupivacaine was given. Within a few minutes, the...
  10. Regional infraclavicular blocks via the coracoid approach for below-elbow surgery: a comparison between ultrasound guidance with, or without, nerve stimulation

    Regional infraclavicular blocks via the coracoid approach for below-elbow surgery: a comparison between ultrasound guidance with, or without, nerve stimulation

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia
    This randomised, observer-blinded study compared brachial plexus infraclavicular block under ultrasound guidance with, or without, nerve stimulation, for patients undergoing below-elbow surgery.
