Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A narcotic analgesic structurally related to METHADONE. Only the dextro-isomer has an analgesic effect; the levo-isomer appears to exert an antitussive effect.
The collecting of fetal blood samples via ultrasound-guided needle aspiration of the blood in the umbilical vein.
A short-acting opioid anesthetic and analgesic derivative of FENTANYL. It produces an early peak analgesic effect and fast recovery of consciousness. Alfentanil is effective as an anesthetic during surgery, for supplementation of analgesia during surgical procedures, and as an analgesic for critically ill patients.
Ultrasonography applying the Doppler effect, with frequency-shifted ultrasound reflections produced by moving targets (usually red blood cells) in the bloodstream along the ultrasound axis in direct proportion to the velocity of movement of the targets, to determine both direction and velocity of blood flow.

Nerve Compression Syndromes
Mechanical compression of nerves or nerve roots from internal or external causes. These may result in a conduction block to nerve impulses (due to MYELIN SHEATH dysfunction) or axonal loss. The nerve and nerve sheath injuries may be caused by ISCHEMIA; INFLAMMATION; or a direct mechanical effect.
BACKGROUND: An objective of our work was to clarify variations in pudendal nerve formation, as well as their possible impact on the clinical picture. METHOD: Bilateral pudendal nerve course and format...
PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the outcome of ilioinguinal and iliohypogastric nerve blocks in patients with chronic pain after herniorrhaphy, by comparing nerve stimulator and ultraso...
Ultrasound guidance is associated with improved efficiency and success of peripheral nerve blockade and a decreased incidence of vascular puncture, making these interventions safer. Patients with peri...
Pudendal neuralgia is a neuropathic disease which is predominantly caused by pelvic trauma with pressure or stretching strain of the pudendal nerve. The Nantes criteria are used for the differential d...
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Arthrogryposis multiplex congenital is hallmarked with immobile joints and muscle fibrosis. The main objective of this study was to compare the success rate of ultrasound-gu...
Sciatic nerve blocks are frequently used for anesthesia or analgesia for surgery of the lower legs. Currently, if ultrasound is used to find the sciatic nerve, the leg must be raised to l...
This two tiered study is a multi-center, open label, surveillance study of the use of continuous nerve blocks with the ON-Q® C-bloc and either nerve stimulator or ultrasound guided contin...
The purpose of this study is to compare the use of ultrasound-guided bilateral rectus sheath blocks to local infiltration of anesthetic agent in the surgical wound in a pediatric populatio...
This is a randomized study which will compare three femoral nerve catheter insertion techniques. Subjects will be randomized into one of thee groups, Group 1: ultrasound guided femoral ne...
The classical method for spinal anesthesia relies on the use of bony landmarks to identify the level and point of entry of the spinal needle. Over the years, in experienced hands, this met...
