Comparison of Volumes of Local Anesthetics on the Efficiency and Safety of Stellate Ganglion Block for CRPS of the Arm

2017-10-25 20:49:07 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to compare the efficiency and safety of 2ml versus 5ml of local anesthetics used in stellate ganglion blocks for the treatment of complex regional pain syndrome of the arm.

Description

To evaluate if 2ml of 0.2% ropivacaine is less effective in decreasing pain scores by more than 50% when compared to 5ml of 0.2% ropivacaine. To evaluate if 2ml of 0.2% ropivacaine is causes less side effects when compared to 5ml after a stellate ganglion block.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A paravertebral sympathetic ganglion formed by the fusion of the inferior cervical and first thoracic ganglia.

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.

Method of treating pain associated with the sphenopalatine ganglion located in the PTERYGOPALATINE FOSSA, posterior to the middle nasal turbinate. The transnasal approach involves application of suitable local anesthetic to the mucous membrane overlying the ganglion.

The sensory ganglion of the facial (7th cranial) nerve. The geniculate ganglion cells send central processes to the brain stem and peripheral processes to the taste buds in the anterior tongue, the soft palate, and the skin of the external auditory meatus and the mastoid process.

The sensory ganglion of the COCHLEAR NERVE. The cells of the spiral ganglion send fibers peripherally to the cochlear hair cells and centrally to the COCHLEAR NUCLEI of the BRAIN STEM.
