A Preemptive Epidural Ropivacaine for Postoperative Pain Relief in Degenerative Lumbar Spine Surgery
This prospective randomized study aims to evaluate the effectiveness of epidural injection of ropivacaine on the relief of pain in patients undergoing laminectomy.
Total 60 patients will be randomized into one of two groups (groupC or groupI) based on Excel number generation.
Patients in group C will receive no medication intraoperatively, and patients in group I will receive epidural injection of 0.1% ropivacaine 10ml before skin incision.
Visual analogue scale pain scores, fentanyl consumption and the frequency at which patients pushed the button (FPB) of a patient-controlled analgesia system will be recorded at 4,12,24,48 hour postoperatively.
Patients in group I will receive 0.1% ropivacaine 10 ml before skin incision under guide of C-arm.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Treatment
Placebo (one of medication), Ropivacaine (epidural injection)

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Blood Patch, Epidural
The injection of autologous blood into the epidural space either as a prophylactic treatment immediately following an epidural puncture or for treatment of headache as a result of an epidural puncture.
The relief of pain without loss of consciousness through the introduction of an analgesic agent into the epidural space of the vertebral canal. It is differentiated from ANESTHESIA, EPIDURAL which refers to the state of insensitivity to sensation.
A nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agent with potent analgesic and antiarthritic properties. It has been shown to be effective in the treatment of OSTEOARTHRITIS; RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS; ankylosing SPONDYLITIS; and in the alleviation of postoperative pain (PAIN, POSTOPERATIVE).
Circumscribed collections of suppurative material occurring in the spinal or intracranial EPIDURAL SPACE. The majority of epidural abscesses occur in the spinal canal and are associated with OSTEOMYELITIS of a vertebral body; ANALGESIA, EPIDURAL; and other conditions. Clinical manifestations include local and radicular pain, weakness, sensory loss, URINARY INCONTINENCE, and FECAL INCONTINENCE. Cranial epidural abscesses are usually associated with OSTEOMYELITIS of a cranial bone, SINUSITIS, or OTITIS MEDIA.

Pain during the period after surgery.
Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is associated with moderate to severe postoperative pain. Although epidural treatment provides good and reliable postoperative pain relief after THA, it may c...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether wound infiltration with following single-shot bolus injection with local anesthetic and NASIDs are effective in the treatment of postopera...
Infant neurobehavior alteration is predictor of later intelligence development. Many factors would influence or are associated with infant neurobehavior, of which exist or appear during pe...
The purpose of this study is to compare systematic local infiltration with Ropivacaine 0.5 % versus Ropivacaine 0.2 % versus Placebo in patients undergoing elective caesarean section. The...
The purpose of this study is to compare systematic local infiltration with Ropivacaine 0.5 % vs. Placebo in patients undergoing vaginal hysterectomy. The hypothesis is that systematic loc...
PURPOSE: In this study, we aimed to compare the effects of ropivacaine alone and ropivacaine plus tramadol administered epidurally for postoperative analgesia in children. METHODS: Following Ethics Co...
BACKGROUND: Ropivacaine has an optimal toxicity profile for epidural anesthesia in adults, but there are currently no studies concerning its pharmacokinetics during continuous infusion. The primary ob...
Epidural administration of local anesthetics or opioid during general anesthesia is a widespread method for postoperative analgesia. Despite the availability of this technique, inadvertent administrat...
Background There have been few studies describing wound infiltration with additional intraarticular administration of multimodal analgesia for total knee arthroplasty (TKA). In this study, we assessed...
BACKGROUND: Intravenous opioids and/or continuous epidural block (CEB) are used for postoperative analgesia after hip and/or femoral shaft surgery but adverse effects limit their use in children. A co...
