The Analgesic Effects of Liposomal Bupivacaine versus Bupivacaine Hydrochloride Administered as a Transversus Abdominis Plane Block after Abdominally Based Autologous Microvascular Breast Reconstruction: A Prospective, Single-Blind, Randomized, Controlled Trial.
Postoperative pain control after abdominally based autologous microvascular breast reconstruction is critical to functional recovery, patient satisfaction, and early discharge. The transversus abdominis plane block using 0.25% bupivacaine hydrochloride has been shown to be effective, but it is limited by a short duration of effect. Liposomal bupivacaine is a recently U.S. Food and Drug Administration-approved preparation of bupivacaine that can provide up to 72 hours of pain relief. The purpose of this rand...
Acute chest pain is one of the most important cardinal symptoms in medicine. There are several important differential diagnoses for chest pain. Therefore, a thorough history and physical examination, as well as the 12-lead ECG and laboratory tests are crucial. In clinical practice, it is useful to distinguish between cardiac chest pain and other forms of chest pain in order to treat patients appropriately and to exclude potentially life-threatening conditions.
This study compared the postoperative analgesic efficacy of liposomal bupivacaine as a single-administration adductor canal block (ACB) vs periarticular injection (PAI) for pain control after total knee arthroplasty (TKA). From May 2016 to June 2017, a total of 70 unilateral TKA patients were randomized into 2 groups: PAI (extended-release bupivacaine 266 mg [20-mL vial] with 20 mL of 0.5% bupivacaine hydrochloride and normal saline to a total volume of 120 mL) and ACB (subsartorial saphenous nerve using ex...
Determine whether intraoperative liposomal bupivacaine reduces postoperative opioid requirements, pain scores, and length of stay in patients with fragility intertrochanteric femur fractures in comparison to a group of patients who did not receive liposomal bupivacaine.
Chest pain reduces the quality of life of patients with achalasia. Although laparoscopic Heller-Dor surgery (LHD) is a standard surgical treatment for achalasia, its therapeutic efficacy for chest pain is not clear. The present study evaluated the therapeutic efficacy of LHD for chest pain and tried to identify factors associated with the relief of chest pain.
Chest pain is common in adolescence, but there are no established criteria for managing this problem, which is rarely associated with cardiac disease. This study addressed the gaps in the literature by evaluating psychosocial factors that could be associated with medically unexplained chest pain.
Non-cardiac chest pain (NCCP) is a common presenting complaint which can be better managed. This requires the recognition of clinical sub-groups with investigation and treatment tailored accordingly. The aim of this paper is to encourage more accurate diagnoses and the better recognition of the source of chest pain. We discuss the appropriate investigations and management of each clinical sub-group.
Bupivacaine, a local anesthetic, is commercialized as a racemic mixture of R-bupivacaine and S-bupivacaine enantiomers. HIV infection increases the expression of placental P-glycoprotein (P-gp), and antiretroviral (ARV) therapy inhibits cytochrome P450 3A and P-gp. The present study evaluates the kinetic disposition of bupivacaine enantiomers in HIV-infected parturient women on ARV therapy. In this study, HIV-infected parturient women (n = 10) treated with zidovudine, lamivudine, lopinavir, and ritonavir we...
Liposomal bupivacaine field block is gaining popularity as a critical element of enhanced recovery after surgery protocols in thoracic surgery. Uniportal thoracoscopic surgery has been reported to result in less narcotic consumption compared to traditional VATS. Our objective was to evaluate the post-operative narcotic consumption of patients undergoing uniportal thoracoscopic lobectomy with the use of 0.25% bupivacaine versus those treated with liposomal bupivacaine.
The Rapid Access Chest Pain Clinic (RACPC) has become an important means of assessing patients who present with ischaemic or ischaemia-like symptoms of recent onset. Observations have shown that up to 70% are discharged with a diagnosis of non-anginal chest pain (NACP) and accordingly "reassured". This study aims to describe the actual clinical outcomes of this cohort of patients discharged from the RACPC.
Chest pain is a common general practice presentation that requires careful diagnostic assessment because of its diverse and potentially serious causes and its evaluation remains challenging. The proportion of patients presenting to the emergency department because of acute chest pain appears to be increasing. Nowadays, the essential chest pain-related issues are the missed diagnoses of acute coronary syndromes with a poor short-term prognosis and the increasing percentage of hospitalizations of low-risk cas...
Some surgeons have adopted the use of video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) or robotic surgery to perform resections for lung cancer. VATS is associated with less pain and a decrease in pulmonary complications compared with open thoracotomies. Long-acting liposomal bupivacaine (LB) intercostal nerve blocks are reported to provide superior pain relief compared with epidural catheters in the first 3 d after a thoracotomy. This study examined whether LB improves pain after VATS and if it provides effect...
Patients undergoing primary pterygium excision with autologous conjunctival autograft and human tissue adhesive in New Zealand, currently receive subconjunctival anesthesia with oral postoperative analgesia for pain. Our aim was to investigate the potential added benefit of intraoperative subtenon bupivacaine to this regimen.
B-lines on lung ultrasound are seen in decompensated heart failure, but their diagnostic value in consecutive patients in the acute setting is not clear. Chest CT is the superior method to evaluate interstitial lung disease, but no studies have compared lung ultrasound directly to congestion on chest CT.
Local infiltration analgesia has become a mainstay of pain control for total knee arthroplasty. This study compared the efficacy and cost between periarticular injection cocktails containing liposomal bupivacaine vs ropivacaine. Two hundred forty-two primary total knee arthroplasties performed between September 2013 and January 2016 were retrospectively reviewed. All patients received similar pre-operative medications and a periarticular injection. The control group received 300 mg of ropivacaine, while the...
To examine if chest pain increases the risk of depression and anxiety, or, on the other hand, depression and anxiety increase the risk of chest pain onset in patients with coronary heart disease (CHD).
The study goal was to concurrently evaluate agreement of a 9-point pulmonary ultrasound protocol and portable chest radiograph with chest CT for localization of pathology to the correct lung and also to specific anatomic lobes among a diverse group of intubated patients with acute respiratory failure.
It has been reported that bupivacaine, the most widely used local anesthetic to relieve discogenic back pain in clinical settings, is cytotoxic to intervertebral disc (IVD) cells in vitro; however, the precise mechanisms of cytotoxicity induced by bupivacaine remain unclear. Autophagy is an intracellular lysosomal degradation process that is important for cellular survival. The present study investigated the role of autophagy in the survival of IVD cells subjected to bupivacaine treatment. Human nucleus pu...
Pain caused by soft tissue injury (STI) is always intractable and will eventually result in physical and psychological problems. This experiment aimed to assess the efficacy and mechanisms of low-intensity focused ultrasound (LIFU) for pain-related STI.
