Epidural Hydromorphone Compared With Hydromorphone Infusion in Treating Patients With Prostate Cancer Undergoing Radical Prostatectomy

2014-08-27 03:58:52 | BioPortfolio

Summary

RATIONALE: Giving hydromorphone in different ways may relieve the pain associated with cancer surgery.

PURPOSE: Randomized double-blinded phase III trial to compare the effectiveness of epidural hydromorphone with hydromorphone infusion in patients with prostate cancer undergoing radical prostatectomy.

Description

OBJECTIVES: I. Define the duration of action of hydromorphone (spinal vs supraspinal) in patients who have undergone radical prostatectomy. II. Demonstrate that the duration of the analgesic effects of equal blood concentrations of hydromorphone is dependent on the method used to attain this concentration by comparing continuous epidural infusion with that of a continuous intravenous infusion.

OUTLINE: This is a double blinded, randomized study. After all patients have undergone radical prostatectomy, hydromorphone is administered in two different ways. Patients receive either a hydromorphone bolus injection through an epidural catheter using a patient controlled analgesia pump or a hydromorphone bolus injection through an intravenous catheter using a patient controlled analgesia pump. Infusion for both groups is stopped at 24 hours. Patients are followed every 30 minutes for 6 hours.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 40 patients will be accrued into this study over a 3 year period.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A type of pain that is perceived in an area away from the site where the pain arises, such as facial pain caused by lesion of the VAGUS NERVE, or throat problem generating referred pain in the ear.

Pain in the facial region including orofacial pain and craniofacial pain. Associated conditions include local inflammatory and neoplastic disorders and neuralgic syndromes involving the trigeminal, facial, and glossopharyngeal nerves. Conditions which feature recurrent or persistent facial pain as the primary manifestation of disease are referred to as FACIAL PAIN SYNDROMES.

An opioid analgesic made from MORPHINE and used mainly as an analgesic. It has a shorter duration of action than morphine.

Conditions characterized by pain involving an extremity or other body region, HYPERESTHESIA, and localized autonomic dysfunction following injury to soft tissue or nerve. The pain is usually associated with ERYTHEMA; SKIN TEMPERATURE changes, abnormal sudomotor activity (i.e., changes in sweating due to altered sympathetic innervation) or edema. The degree of pain and other manifestations is out of proportion to that expected from the inciting event. Two subtypes of this condition have been described: type I; (REFLEX SYMPATHETIC DYSTROPHY) and type II; (CAUSALGIA). (From Pain 1995 Oct;63(1):127-33)

Discomfort or more intense forms of pain that are localized to the cervical region. This term generally refers to pain in the posterior or lateral regions of the neck.
