Aim: The aim of the present study was to investigate the occurrence of postoperative delirium (POD) in elderly patients undergoing transurethral resection of prostate (TURP) and to identify those factors associated with delirium. Methods: From July 2010 to February 2015, 358 patients, aged...
- Results and Complications of Spinal Anesthesia in Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy. Mehrabi, Sadrollah; Shirazi, Kambiz Karimzadeh // Urology Journal;Nov2010, Vol. 7 Issue 1, p22
Introduction: Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) is the treatment of choice for large kidney calculi, staghorn calculi, and calculi that are multiple or resistant to shock wave lithotripsy. In many centers, PCNL is performed under general anesthesia. However, complications under spinal...

- Risk Factors and Outcomes for Postoperative Delirium after Major Surgery in Elderly Patients. Raats, Jelle W.; van Eijsden, Wilbert A.; Crolla, Rogier M. P. H.; Steyerberg, Ewout W.; van der Laan, Lijckle // PLoS ONE;8/20/2015, Vol. 10 Issue 8, p1
Background: Early identification of patients at risk for delirium is important, since adequate well timed interventions could prevent occurrence of delirium and related detrimental outcomes. The aim of this study is to evaluate prognostic factors for delirium, including factors describing...
- Dexmedetomidine versus propofol for sedation in patients undergoing vitreoretinal surgery under sub-Tenon's anesthesia. Ghali, Ashraf; Mahfouz, Abdul Kader; Ihanamäki, Tapio; El Btarny, Ashraf M. // Saudi Journal of Anaesthesia;Jan2011, Vol. 5 Issue 1, p36
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the hemodynamic, respiratory effects, the recovery profile, surgeons, and patients satisfaction with dexmedetomidine sedation compared with those of propofol sedation in patients undergoing vitreoretinal surgery under sub-Tenon's anesthesia....
