Key Take-Away:

Hernia restoration is a general surgical approach with little postoperative complications, but some of the patients continue to tolerate chronic postoperative pain and discomfort for several months to years. As many of the studies govern the role of Pregabalin in post-surgical pain management, this analysis evaluates this drug efficacy and safety in managing post-Lichtenstein herniorrhaphy pain.
 

A gamma-aminobutyric acid analog, pregabalin shows excellent efficacy in maintaining different neuropathic pains, as well as in inflammatory and incisional injuries.

The Sphenopalatine Ganglion (SPG), the cluster of nerve cells connected to the trigeminal nerve, the main nerve participating in headache pain disorders. Regional anaesthetic suprazygomatic SPG block is a simple and effective approach for quick relief of Status migrainosus (SM) with minimal risk.

Various modalities provide postoperative analgesia in breast cancer surgeries for example opiates, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents, wound infiltration with local anaesthetic agents, thoracic epidural, and paravertebral blocks. This randomized study explored the efficacy of dexmedetomidine regarding prolonged duration and improved quality of postoperative analgesia further supporting bupivacaine in pecs I and II blocks.

Dexmedetomidine has been proved to be safe and efficacious in sustaining the duration of peripheral nerve blocks.

This study explained that the Posterior approach TAP block (PTAP) provided a sensory block that involved a greater number of dermatomes and involvement of more cephalad dermatome blocked to sharp touch as compared to the Lateral approach TAP block (LTAP) under US guidance. The posterolateral spread of the local analgesic agent to the paravertebral space might be linked to the high number of dermatomes.

Ultrasound (US)-guided transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block is used as a part of a multimodal analgesic regimen in the postoperative period.

Key Take-Away:

Osteoporotic vertebral fracture (VF) is considered a fracture of one or more vertebrae and related to the high rates of mortality and morbidity as well. This raises the importance of diagnosis as soon as possible. The study reflects the different method's efficacy and anticipates modified algorithm-based qualitative (mABQ) approach as a leading approach for vertebral fracture (VF) management.

Two methods for osteoporotic VF assessment on lateral spine radiographs, the Genant semiquantitative (GSQ) technique and a modified algorithm-based qualitative (mABQ) approach were compared.
