Comparative analysis of anesthesia and clinical efficacy of inhalation anesthesia and intravenous anesthesia in Trigeminal Nerve Balloon Avulsion
Objective: To observe the anesthesia and clinical efficacy of inhalation anesthesia and intravenous anesthesia in patients with trigeminal neuralgia undergoing surgery.
Methods: This is a retrospective study. Eighty patients with trigeminal neuralgia admitted to the Affiliated Hospital of Beihua University from July 2018 to July 2021 were selected and divided into two groups according to different anesthesia methods: inhalation group and intravenous group, with 40 cases in each group. Patients in the inhalation group were given inhalation anesthesia with sevoflurane, while those in the intravenous group were given intravenous anesthesia. Hemodynamics, intubation and extubation time, postoperative consciousness recovery, adverse reactions and clinical effects of surgery were compared between the two groups during anesthesia.
Results: During the induction of anesthesia, after induction and after surgery, the levels of hemodynamic parameters in the two groups increased compared with those before induction of anesthesia, and the increase in the inhalation group was smaller (P<0.05). Patients in the inhalation group had a long time from anesthesia to endotracheal intubation but had a short time from completion of surgery to intubation, which was statistically significant compared with the intravenous group (P<0.05). Compared with the intravenous group, the postoperative consciousness recovery time of the inhalation group was significantly shorter and the incidence of adverse reactions was significantly lower (P<0.05).
Conclusion: Inhalation anesthesia with sevoflurane is more effective than intravenous anesthesia in trigeminal neuralgia patients treated with trigeminal nerve balloon avulsion, boasting satisfactory safety, less impact on hemodynamics, and shorter recovery time of consciousness.
