Pudendal Block Versus Penian Block For Circumcision In Children

2017-02-09 11:08:22 | BioPortfolio


The authors study the efficacy of the pudendal versus penile block for the relief of postoperative pain in children receiving ambulatory circumcision.

In this prospective, double-blind, randomized, parallel-arm trial, 60 children recruited during the anesthesia consultation will be allocated a general anesthesia with a pudendal block (PUD group) or a penile block (PEN group).

Each block will be made with equal parts lidocaine 1% and ropivacaine 0.75% (0.3 ml/kg).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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 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)
