Sleep Quality After Stellate-ganglion Block of Patients Undergoing Breast Cancer Operation

2016-01-12 12:38:23 | BioPortfolio


Stellate-ganglion block have been done safely for more than 60 years. It has proved to provide survivors of breast cancer with relief from hot flushes and sleep dysfunction with few or no side-effects. The aim of the present study is to evaluate postoperative sleep quality of patients undergoing breast cancer surgery with Stellate-ganglion block performed in the operation.


This study is a prospective, randomized, controlled (randomized, parallel group, concealed allocation), double-blinded trial. All patients undergoing breast cancer operation will be randomized 1:1 to the treatment intervention with general anesthesia as an adjunct to Stellate-ganglion block with 0.25% ropivacaine hydrochloride or saline. The objective of the trial is to evaluate the postoperative sleep quality of patients undergoing breast cancer operation with Stellate-ganglion block 0.25% ropivacaine hydrochloride or saline.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The state of being deprived of sleep under experimental conditions, due to life events, or from a wide variety of pathophysiologic causes such as medication effect, chronic illness, psychiatric illness, or sleep disorder.

Excessive periodic leg movements during sleep that cause micro-arousals and interfere with the maintenance of sleep. This condition induces a state of relative sleep deprivation which manifests as excessive daytime hypersomnolence. The movements are characterized by repetitive contractions of the tibialis anterior muscle, extension of the toe, and intermittent flexion of the hip, knee and ankle. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p387)

A disorder characterized by recurrent apneas during sleep despite persistent respiratory efforts. It is due to upper airway obstruction. The respiratory pauses may induce HYPERCAPNIA or HYPOXIA. Cardiac arrhythmias and elevation of systemic and pulmonary arterial pressures may occur. Frequent partial arousals occur throughout sleep, resulting in relative SLEEP DEPRIVATION and daytime tiredness. Associated conditions include OBESITY; ACROMEGALY; MYXEDEMA; micrognathia; MYOTONIC DYSTROPHY; adenotonsilar dystrophy; and NEUROMUSCULAR DISEASES. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p395)

Periods of sleep manifested by changes in EEG activity and certain behavioral correlates; includes Stage 1: sleep onset, drowsy sleep; Stage 2: light sleep; Stages 3 and 4: delta sleep, light sleep, deep sleep, telencephalic sleep.

Dyssomnias (i.e., insomnias or hypersomnias) associated with dysfunction of internal sleep mechanisms or secondary to a sleep-related medical disorder (e.g., sleep apnea, post-traumatic sleep disorders, etc.). (From Thorpy, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, p187)
