Regional Anesthetic Approaches for Postoperative Analgesia Following Vertebral Body Tethering: A Case Series

Lee, Nancy S; Kydes, Ashley
Vertebral body tethering (VBT) is an innovative surgical technique used to treat juvenile and adolescent idiopathic scoliosis. The optimal anesthetic technique, including the preferred management of postoperative pain, is not known. In this case series, we describe 3 patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis who received either continuous erector spinae plane block (ESPB) catheters or intercostal liposomal bupivacaine for postoperative pain management after bilateral VBT via minithoracotomy.

Postoperative Harlequin Syndrome: Case Report of a Rare but Clinically Striking Condition

Kydes, Ashley T; Kelley, Ashley M; Pandya, Samir R; Barst, Samuel M
We present a case of a 2-year-old boy who underwent thoracoscopic resection of a left paraspinal mediastinal mass and developed Harlequin syndrome postoperatively. Harlequin syndrome is a rare neurological condition characterized by unilateral hyperhidrosis and erythema of the head and neck. Our discussion highlights this condition and other differential diagnoses that may present similarly in the postoperative period.
