Case reportCardiovascular collapse during elective orthopedic surgery: massive intraoperative pulmonary thromboembolism treated with emergent cardiopulmonary bypass

AbstractSuccessful management strategies for pulmonary thromboembolism—primarily published as case reports—include a spectrum ranging from medical treatment with cardiovascular support and anticoagulation to more invasive interventions such as pulmonary embolectomy. We present a case of massive intraoperative pulmonary embolism that was managed with emergent pulmonary embolectomy. Unlike previously reported cases, this aggressive management strategy was unsuccessful, due in part perhaps to lack of discernible clot during embolectomy.

Case reportAcute coronary syndrome and myocardial infarction after orthopedic surgery in a patient with a recently placed drug-eluting stent

AbstractProviding anesthesia care for patients who have recently undergone intracoronary drug-eluting stent placement presents unique clinical challenges. It is currently recommended that these patients remain on antiplatelet therapy until reendothelialization of the vessel has occurred (ie, 3-6 months, depending on the eluting medication) to prevent stent restenosis. In the setting of urgent or emergent surgery, it may not be possible to wait until a full course of antiplatelet therapy has been completed. We report an unusual case of postoperative acute coronary syndrome in a gentleman who underwent intracoronary stenting 7 weeks before nonelective revision hip arthroplasty. To our knowledge, this is the first case in the anesthesia literature to report postoperative cardiac morbidity after recent drug-eluting stent deployment.

Case reportPosterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome during pregnancy: seizures in a previously healthy parturient

AbstractPosterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome refers to a neuroradiologic disorder in which seizure activity (multiple seizures are more common than single events) is commonly the initial presenting symptom. We describe a case of posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome in a previously healthy parturient who presented to the labor and delivery suite with generalized tonic-clonic seizures. Prompt recognition and treatment of this potentially catastrophic disease may avert injury to the patient and neonate.

Case reportClinical application of a novel video camera laryngoscope: a case series venturing beyond the normal airway☆

AbstractThe McGRATH Video Laryngoscope Series 5 is an example of indirect laryngoscopic equipment. Experience using this device to safely intubate the trachea of awake and asleep patients with known or anticipated difficult airways is presented.

Special articleCharacteristics of anesthesiology residency program directors☆

AbstractThe roles and responsibilities of anesthesiology core program directors have evolved, in part because the Anesthesiology Residency Review Committee of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education no longer requires that the department chair also serve in this role. We reviewed several core anesthesiology program director academic and demographic characteristics including age, academic rank, gender, duration of service, board certification and re-certification status, and whether the program director also serves as department chair. Anesthesiology core residency program directors range in age from 33 to 74 years, with a median of 52 years. Thirty-seven (28%) program directors are women. The majority (67%) have senior academic rank (professor or associate professor). The median appointment duration is 3.7 years. The core residency program director currently also serves as department chair in 24 of the 131 (18.3%) programs.

Original ContributionRecruitment of house staff into anesthesiology: a longitudinal evaluation of factors responsible for selecting a career in anesthesiology and an individual training program

AbstractStudy ObjectiveTo re-evaluate factors responsible for selecting a career in anesthesiology and for selecting an anesthesiology training program. The perceptions of anesthesiology residents about employment opportunities and future job security were also re-examined. Novel data on the impact of duty hour restrictions on residency training were obtained.DesignSurvey instrument.SettingAcademic medical center.Subjects63 residents enrolled in the anesthesiology residency at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN (clinical base year and clinical anesthesia years 1-3) during the 2010-11 academic year. All responses were anonymous.MeasurementsCurrent study data were compared to data from two similar studies published by the authors (1995-96 and 2000-01) using an f-exact test. A P-value ≤ 0.05 was considered significant.Main Results55 of 63 (87%) residents responded to the survey. The most frequently cited reasons for selecting a career in anesthesiology were: anesthesiology is a “hands-on” specialty (49%), critical care medicine is included in the scope of training/practice (33%), anesthesiology provides opportunities to perform invasive procedures (31%), and the work is immediately gratifying (31%). When current data were compared with data from the 1995-96 survey, respondents reported significant decreases in interest in physiology/pharmacology (42% vs 21%; P = 0.03), opportunities to conduct research (13% vs 2%; P = 0.05) and opportunities to train in pain medicine (13% vs 0%; P = 0.01) as reasons for selecting anesthesiology. When current data were compared with data from the 2000-2001 survey, respondents reported a significant increase in critical care medicine (7% vs 33%, P = 0.01), significant decreases in time off (36% vs 11%; P = 0.01) and work time mostly devoted to patient care (20% vs 2%; P = 0.01) as factors in selecting anesthesiology as a career. Nearly all (94%) respondents reported a high level of satisfaction with their specialty choice and would choose anesthesiology again if currently graduating medical school. When current data were compared with those from the 2000-2001 survey, a significant increase in respondents who anticipated difficulty securing employment (0% vs 14%; P = 0.01) was noted. However, anticipation of difficulty in securing employment remained significantly lower than what was reported on the 1995-96 survey (54% vs 14%; P = 0.01). Thirty-eight percent of residents reported that implementation of duty hour restrictions had a positive impact on resident education, and 43% of residents reported that duty hour restrictions improved their quality of life. However, most respondents (69%) did not support further duty hour restrictions, and many (43%) expected to work longer hours after graduation.ConclusionsResidents in this study remain highly satisfied with anesthesiology as a career choice and with their training program. However, a resurgence of concern about employment after program completion and about future job security is apparent. The impact of critical care medicine training has significantly increased as a factor in selecting anesthesiology as a career, and the impact of training in pain medicine has significantly decreased. Although work hour restrictions were viewed as having a positive impact on training and well-being by 48% of residents, a majority of respondents in this study (76%) disagreed with further duty hour restrictions.
