Both procedures have a similar duration of action of at least 6 hours cafergot 100mg otc. No difference in the number of patients without pain for 4 h or in those requiring analgesics by 24 h has been reported compared to caudal block (Fisher 1993) discount 100 mg cafergot with visa. Inguinal Surgery in Children | 73 undergoing herniotomy, orchidopexy or ligation of patent processus vaginalis, show no statistically significant differences between IIB and caudal analgesia (Markham 1986). Patients with caudal anesthesia have prolonged discharge times when compared to patients who receive IIB (Splinter 1995). Earlier micturition and less complications in the IIB group is an important advantage over the caudal block (Markham 1986). Caudal epidural blocks may be more effective than IIB plus LIA in controlling pain after herniorrhaphy with laparoscopy and result in earlier discharge to home (Tobias 1995). Pain control with caudal blocks can be improved by increasing the concentration of local anesthetic. This will increase the incidence of adverse effects. The adverse effects associated with caudal blocks may be urinary retention, delayed ambulation and accidental subarachnoid or intravascular injection. However, IIB may also be associated with serious complications, especially in children. The risk of complications is certainly greater in neonates and infants. Orchidopexy is a procedure usually performed in children through an inguinal incision similar to that of the inguinal herniorrhaphy, but it involves more testicular and spermatic cord traction. It must be remembered that testicular innervation can be traced up to T10 and from the aortic and renal sympathetic plexus (Kaabachi 2005). Moreover innervation of spermatic cord by the gGFN should be taken into account. For these reasons, the IIB alone is unable to prevent either the painful stimulation from traction of the spermatic cord or manipulation of the testis and peritoneum (Jagannathan 2009). In a study, an ultrasound-guided IIB added to a caudal block decreased the severity of pain in inguinal hernia repair, 74 | Ultrasound Blocks for the Anterior Abdominal Wall hydrocelectomy, orchiectomy and orchidopexy, but these data and the time to first rescue analgesic were significant only in inguinal hernia repair patients (Jagannathan 2009). The addition of a spermatic cord block to an IIB may reduce analgesic requirements in orchidopexy (Blatt 2007). Percutaneous IIB + gGFB in children undergoing inguinal herniorraphy resulted in lower pain scores for 8 hours and lower analgesic requirements (Hinkle 1987). Conflicting results have been shown by a study in which the benefit of the additional gGFB to IIB was limited only to the time of sac traction without any postoperative effect (Sasaoka 2005). Obstetric and Gynecologic Surgery Zhirajr Mokini Anterior abdominal wall blocks have been evaluated in gynecologic and obstetric surgery. The Pfannenstiel section for open gynecologic and obstetric surgery affects the groin territory innervated by IIH and IIN. Obviously, a bilateral block is required in these types of surgery. Multimodal analgesia with anterior abdominal wall regional blocks applied to laparoscopic or open intra-abdominal surgery seem to be particularly useful in reducing postoperative opioid requirements (Bamigboye 2009). A recent survey among obstetric anesthesiologists in the United Kingdom showed that 21. It is important however to provide patients with adequate analgesia in relation to the surgical procedure because blocks cannot offer visceral pain control. Objective evaluation in terms of pain reduction may be difficult because the visceral component of postoperative pain may be subjectively described as moderate to severe. This is why many studies report significant reduction in opioid requirements without significant differences in pain scores. Visceral pain can be effectively relieved with neuraxial or systemic opioid administration, but at the price of uncomfortable side effects (Kanazi 2010). Overall, the quality of postoperative analgesia was improved compared to placebo with reduced pain reports, an increased time for first rescue analgesic and reduced opioid need. Pain scores and analgesic requirements may be reduced for the first 24 hours (Ganta 1994, Belavy 2009). These results suggest that the IIB should be always performed after cesarean delivery under general anesthesia or spinal anesthesia when neuraxial opioids are not used (Belavy 2009). However, adverse effects related to opioids have been reported to be not reduced by IIB. A recent Cochrane review indicated that women who undergo cesarean section under regional anesthesia with IIB have decreased opioid consumption but no difference in visual analogue pain scores (Bamigboye 2009). The block of the transverse abdominal muscle plexus, in which the IIH and the IIN run, provided better analgesia with reduced opioid request and delayed time to rescue analgesic compared with placebo (McDonnell 2008). More patients have been reported to be able to put the babies to the breast at 8 hours (Kuppuvelumani 1993).

Although these initiatives were undoubtedly examples of clinically led service redesign, they were often stymied by the lack of a receptive and sufficiently resourced operational commissioning forum to consider them. Conclusions This chapter has analysed the role of clinical leadership in our eight cases in terms of three arenas, concerned with strategic commissioning, operational commissioning and operational service delivery. We have also made a distinction between the leadership work of instigating service redesign and that of implementing new models or concepts of service delivery. In addition, we examined the range of ways that these activities can take place across the three arenas. A number of key points are worth bringing out by way of conclusion to our comparison of the eight cases. First, the leadership work of crafting operational detail is bound up with the operational delivery arena – without leadership work within this arena, operational solidity is unlikely to emerge. However, this institutional work of defining operational detail requires interchange with the operational commissioning arena, so that the staff and other resources or delivery are appropriate and also so that there can be iterative refinement of the overall concept and its ethos.

CROSS-CASE FINDINGS AND COMPARISONS Second, and perhaps more surprising, the leadership work of envisaging and articulating new service concepts can begin in any of the three arenas and often involves individuals who can move adroitly between them. We saw new service concepts being taken up to the strategic arena by clinicians who were also engaged in committed work in operational arenas, as well as cases where clinicians working mainly in strategic arenas formulated big ideas and found formal and informal ways of shaping powerfully the activities of colleagues in the other two kinds of arena. Above all, our analysis brings out the key role played by operational commissioning arenas for steering service innovation. Arenas such as programme boards appear to offer a forum where clinical leaders in CCG commissioning roles and in provider roles come together to integrate the institutional work of creating new models of service delivery. In order to do this, they can be seen as bringing clinical expertise and experience to bear in reconciling a number of perspectives which are potentially in conflict with one another. These include: l thinking differently about what established clinical professions do, in the context of services designed to address the needs of members of the public in a holistic way; tackling identified public health challenges rather than providing a service as defined by established clinical specialisms l developing new or modified professional identities and skills sets; clinical leaders in commissioning and provider roles became engaged in practical debate about the skills and sense of priorities of particular clinical roles l preserving and enhancing the expertise base of established clinical workforces; in some of our cases, provider clinical leaders took up a key role of working out how the expertise they represented could continue to be useful and relevant in a new service delivery model l identifying where national-level funding schemes offer opportunities or incentives for investments in new models of service; in some cases, the work of making sense of, and capitalising fully on, a plethora of national initiatives and sources of funding demanded a great deal of attention l preserving the income streams of established clinical provider organisations; in a number of cases both commissioners and providers found themselves dealing with complexity around whether or not to continue to support an established provider or advocate it be replaced by something different that might serve public health needs better. Grappling with these tensions involves much more than mediating between a managerial and a clinical perspective, which is one established notion of the work of clinical leadership. Our analysis of the work of programme boards suggests that clinicians and non-clinicians on such boards find themselves mediating between a variety of different managerial perspectives (e. One of the key lessons from our cases is the function of programme boards in providing a kind of adaptive leadership forum where complex dilemmas can be tackled through a process of dialogue, guided by an ethos of commitment to public health. Solutions to such dilemmas need to be discovered rather than imposed. This role of programme boards is particularly significant given the fact that, as we will see in the next chapter, these kinds of arenas do not exist in some health-care systems abroad. Although the original conception of CCGs emphasised the importance of their governing bodies as the place where the clinical voice would direct commissioning strategy, our cases demonstrate that this depends on carefully constructed operational commissioning forums, such as programme boards. In order to achieve this, we saw commissioners in these operational commissioning arenas finding ways to set aside models of market-based commissioning and instead seeking collaboration with providers to establish pilot arrangements for new models of care. These attempts frequently seemed to rely on using non-recurrent funding. One constant leadership task addressed within strategic commissioning areas is the authorisation and vesting of resources in the other two arenas. In some cases, the work of making sense of, and capitalising fully on, a plethora of national initiatives and sources of funding demanded a great deal of attention. The findings make clear that the integration of clinical leadership across the three arenas can be an uneven and lengthy process. This has important implications for the speed of progress in service innovation that policy-makers should expect.

CCGs are just one example, albeit a very important one, of just such an attempt to enact the expectation, obligation and opportunity. With the launch of the National Improvement and Leadership Development Board in 2016, that general expectation of a diffuse and widespread responsibility for leadership and development has been renewed and intensified. Implicit within this is the related question of whether or not CCGs have provided an appropriate platform for the exercise of clinical leadership.
