ABSTRACT. This study aimed to investigate the protective effects and the mechanisms underlying these effects of isoflurane preconditioning in the delayed phase of myocardial ischemia-reperfusion injury. We randomly divided 30 healthy male New Zealand white rabbits into three groups with 10 rabbits in each group as follows: sham operation group (C group), ischemia-reperfusion group (I/R group), and 2.0% isoflurane preconditioning group (S group). Rabbits in the C group received thoracotomy for 160 min.
Isoflurane can induce widespread cytotoxicity. We hypothesized that isoflurane induces apoptosis partly by causing excessive calcium release from the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) via direct activation of inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate receptors (IP3R). Rat pheochromocytoma cells cultured for seven days with nerve growth factor were divided into four groups: control group (C), IP3R antagonist group (X), isoflurane group (I) and isoflurane + IP3R antagonist group (I+X). Groups I and I+X were treated with 1 MAC isoflurane for 12 h.
Distal radius fracture is a common wound. It is reduced by surgery under anesthesia. Emergence agitation can often occur after anesthesia. It is associated with increased morbidity and hospital costs. However, there have been almost no reports in the medical literature on the occurrence of emergence agitation in adults. This study aimed to compare emergence agitation between isoflurane and propofol anesthesia in adults after closed reduction of distal radius fracture.
