The purpose of this study is to compare addition of dexmedetomidine or fentanyl to bupivacaine for epidural analgesia in combination with general anesthesia in elective lumbar spine operat...
Dexmedetomidine, highly selective agonist for alpha-2 receptors, enhances the sensory and motor block with prolonged postoperative analgesia without hemodynamic compromise. OBJECTIVE: To ...
The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of subtenon block (SB)anesthesia with dexmedetomidine in combination with bupivacaine versus intravenous dexmedetom...
dexmedetomidine is an alpha 2 adrenergic receptor agonist that is given either systemically or combined to local anesthetics during regional blocks. Investigators studied the combination o...
Postoperative analgesia for hallux valgus surgery (bunionectomy) is inconsistent and may even result in rebound pain when the (ankle) blocks wear off. It is hypothesized that the mixture o...
Local infiltrations and regional blocks have been some of the effective ways employed to manage and control post-operative pain. One of the limitations of administration of local anesthesia drugs in p...
The synergistic effect of clonidine with bupivacaine, well established in peripheral nerve blocks, remains controversial in local field block for postoperative analgesia.
Knee arthroscopy causes minimal trauma, however, good analgesia is required for early rehabilitation and return to normal life in the patients.
Liposomal bupivacaine is a novel method for pain control after total knee arthroplasty (TKA), but recent studies showed no advantage for patients undergoing TKA compared with traditional periarticular...
A newer formulation of bupivacaine, encapsulated within carrier molecules, has garnered attention for its role in providing extended post-operative analgesia. The purpose was to evaluate the addition ...
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)
A widely used local anesthetic agent.
A local anesthetic with rapid onset and long action, similar to BUPIVACAINE.
Abnormally slow pace of regaining CONSCIOUSNESS after general anesthesia (ANESTHESIA, GENERAL) usually given during surgical procedures. This condition is characterized by persistent somnolence.
A nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agent with potent analgesic and antiarthritic properties. It has been shown to be effective in the treatment of OSTEOARTHRITIS; RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS; ankylosing SPONDYLITIS; and in the alleviation of postoperative pain (PAIN, POSTOPERATIVE).
