Anna Maria Bombardieri, MD, PhD is an Anesthesiologist who specializes in Regional Anesthesiology. She completed her residency training and PhD at the University of Florence.She completed a fellowship in Regional Anesthesia and Acute Pain Medicine at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York and a Critical Care Medicine fellowship at Université Libre de Bruxelles, in Belgium. She was faculty in the Department of Anesthesiology at the Universitè Sophia Antipolis in Nice, France, and at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis before joining the department of Anesthesiology at Stanford.
My overall research goal is to advance clinical practice by providing anesthesiologists with data to most effectively maintain cerebral blood flow during surgery. <br/>I intend to combine the tools of pharmacology (specifically, dose and concentration vs. cerebral blood flow response, and models of drug interaction) to understand the relationship between vasopressor selection, vasopressor dose, and cerebral blood flow. <br/>A secondary goal is to apply this new knowledge to investigate whether target defined maintenance of cerebral blood flow intraoperatively improves long term neurological outcomes and reduces complications, such as delirium and post-operative cognitive disfunction.
Cerebral Blood Flow Evaluation With Trancranial Doppler After Interscalene Nerve Block
The purpose of this study is to assess cerebral blood flow velocity (CBFV) following regional
anesthesia for shoulder surgery. The results of this study will help to further understand
the physiologic effect of the interscalene nerve block on cerebral blood flow.
Stanford is currently not accepting patients for this trial.
