This study was undertaken to compare the analgesic efficacy of ultrasound-guided single-shot caudal block with ultrasound-guided single-shot paravertebral block in children undergoing renal surgeries.
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: Journal of clinical anesthesia
Adequate pain control after cardiac surgery is essential. Paravertebral block is a simple technique and avoids the potential complications of epidural catheters. The objective of this study is to c...
Lumbar epidural block is an effective and routinely used technique for labor pain relief, and the combined spinal-epidural block has the benefit of using lower doses of local anesthetics and rapid ons...
Injection to the accurate area without any complications is the main factor for the efficiencies of caudal block. The aim of this study was to compare success and the complications of conventional ...
To compare the efficacy of a conventional fluoroscopy-guided epidural nerve block and an ultrasound (US)-guided intercostal nerve block in patients with thoracic herpes zoster (HZ).
A best evidence topic in cardiac surgery was written according to a structured protocol. The question addressed was: In patients undergoing video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery, is paravertebral block...
Caudal epidural block is a well-established and commonly performed regional neuraxial technique for providing intraoperative and postoperative analgesia in children scheduled for lower abd...
This prospective, randomized study is aimed to assess the efficacy and safety of paravertebral block compared to epidural anesthesia for percutaneous nephrolithotomy. The investigators sup...
Comparison of the Clinical Efficacy of 2 Paravertebral Block Strategies in Thoracic Surgery by Thoracotomy: by the Anesthetist (Paravertebral Block Guided by Ultrasound) and by the Thoracic Surgeon (Paravertebral Block Visual)
Post-thoracotomy pain is one of the most severe. The local analgesia allows its effective control and a reduction of postoperative morbidity and mortality. The gold standard for local ana...
The purpose of this study is to assess the effectiveness of transversus abdominal plane (TAP) block, thoracic epidural or paravertebral block (PVB) for controlling postoperative pain when ...
The purpose of this randomized blinded prospective study is to compare the analgesic efficacy and duration of a Pudendal Nerve Block (PNB) to a Caudal Block (CB) for pediatric patients, ag...
Interruption of sympathetic pathways, by local injection of an anesthetic agent, at any of four levels: peripheral nerve block, sympathetic ganglion block, extradural block, and subarachnoid block.
Impaired conduction of cardiac impulse that can occur anywhere along the conduction pathway, such as between the SINOATRIAL NODE and the right atrium (SA block) or between atria and ventricles (AV block). Heart blocks can be classified by the duration, frequency, or completeness of conduction block. Reversibility depends on the degree of structural or functional defects.
Impaired or delayed impulse conduction between the right and left HEART ATRIA. Advanced interatrial blocks are often associated with arrhythmias (e.g., ATRIAL FLUTTER; and ATRIAL FIBRILLATION), direct conduction block via the Bachmann's bundle and concomitant left atrial enlargement. Syndrome of advanced interatrial block associated with SUPRAVENTRICULAR TACHYCARDIA is referred to as Bayes syndrome.
A local anesthetic of the ester type that has a slow onset and a short duration of action. It is mainly used for infiltration anesthesia, peripheral nerve block, and spinal block. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1016).
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)
Chronic kidney disease (CKD), also known as chronic renal disease, is a progressive loss in renal function over a period of months or years. The symptoms of worsening kidney function are non-specific, and might include feeling generally unwell and experi...
Pediatrics is the general medicine of childhood. Because of the developmental processes (psychological and physical) of childhood, the involvement of parents, and the social management of conditions at home and at school, pediatrics is a specialty. With ...
