Intravenous Lidocaine and Postoperative Outcomes After Cardiac Surgery
This study is being done to determine if lidocaine, administered during surgery and for 24 hours after surgery can reduce inflammation, thereby reducing the risk of atrial fibrillation and delirium after surgery. Participants undergoing cardiac surgery will be randomized to receive either lidocaine or placebo.
Subjects undergoing cardiac surgery are randomized into one of two groups.
- Group 1: Intravenous Lidocaine Group
- Group 2: Intravenous placebo Group
Either Lidocaine or placebo is administered throughout surgery and 24 hours after surgery.
Patients in both groups will undergo cognitive assessments,quality of life assessments and functional recovery assessments post-surgery.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Prevention

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A local anesthetic and cardiac depressant used as an antiarrhythmia agent. Its actions are more intense and its effects more prolonged than those of procaine but its duration of action is shorter than that of bupivacaine or prilocaine.
Antiarrhythmic agent pharmacologically similar to LIDOCAINE. It may have some anticonvulsant properties.
A local anesthetic that is similar pharmacologically to LIDOCAINE. Currently, it is used most often for infiltration anesthesia in dentistry. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1992, p165)
A colorless liquid with a sharp burning taste and slight odor. It is used as a local anesthetic and to reduce pain associated with LIDOCAINE injection. Also, it is used in the manufacture of other benzyl compounds, as a pharmaceutic aid, and in perfumery and flavoring.
A local anesthetic that is chemically related to BUPIVACAINE but pharmacologically related to LIDOCAINE. It is indicated for infiltration, nerve block, and epidural anesthesia. Mepivacaine is effective topically only in large doses and therefore should not be used by this route. (From AMA Drug Evaluations, 1994, p168)
The purpose of this study is to see if a drug called lidocaine prevents cognitive injury (a decline in mental abilities) after heart surgery. Lidocaine is currently FDA approved and is com...
This study is being done to determine if combined infusions of lidocaine and ketamine is better than a lidocaine or ketamine infusion alone, or to placebo in improving recovery after abdo...
The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of lidocaine (a numbing medication) inside the uterus on patient pain during an early abortion, compared to the paracervical block (lidoc...
Patients will be randomized prospectively to one of two groups. One group will receive 5 mg/kg of 1% lidocaine, and the other will receive .9 normal saline, instilled into their VAC spong...
Our goals for this study involve using intravenous lidocaine as it is normally used in the Stanford Pain Management Center to assess the effect of intravenous lidocaine on chronic pain. St...
Background: The popularity of large-volume liposuction and the toxicity of lidocaine have led to a reduction of lidocaine dosage in tumescent liposuction. We have gradually reduced the concentration o...
PURPOSE: Pain on propofol injection is a common adverse effect. This study examined the effect of a combination of nitroglycerin and lidocaine on pain during propofol injection compared to lidocaine a...
Objective To evaluate the effects of a constant rate infusion (CRI) of lidocaine alone or in combination with ketamine on the minimum infusion rate (MIR) of propofol in dogs and to compare the hemo...
BACKGROUND/AIMS: Propofol has been used in the past for sedation in upper gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopic procedures. This study aimed to measure the incidence of propofol injec...
The lidocaine/tetracaine medicated plaster comprises a lidocaine/tetracaine 70 mg/70 mg patch and a controlled heat-assisted drug delivery pod that increases the diffusion of lidocaine and tetraca...
