This study will compare and determine the most ideal local anesthetic (LA) solution to activate a labor epidural: lidocaine, bupivacaine, or a combination of bupivacaine plus lidocaine.
Mohs surgery is a very effective option in removing non-melanoma skin cancers, as the tissue being removed is analyzed the same day. If there are remnants of cancer cells in the tissue rem...
The study evaluates the efficacy of intravenous lidocaine as an analgesic modality in patients undergoing open upper abdominal surgery; when compared with thoracic epidural analgesia. Half...
Will the technique of adding lidocaine to bupivacaine fasten the onset of bupivacaine alone for infraclavicular brachial plexus block in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patient?
Ophthalmological procedures such as cataract extraction can be carried out with a peribulbar block (PBB). The advantages of this anesthetic technique include a lower incidence of coughing,...
The primary objective was to study the effects of liposomal bupivacaine (LB) compared to bupivacaine HCL with lidocaine on postoperative day 1 pain scores.
Lidocaine has been shown to be clinically beneficial during bariatric surgery. However, information about lidocaine serum concentrations in this setting is scarce. This prospective clinical trial incl...
Background Despite a trend towards minimally invasive thoracic surgeries over thoracotomies, patients can still experience significant post-operative pain. Literature on the use of liposomal bupivacai...
The aim of this randomized prospective study was to investigate the postoperative analgesic effectiveness of bupivacaine versus bupivacaine plus dexamethasone-soaked nasal packing in patients schedule...
Rectus sheath blocks are an established option for analgesia following abdominal surgery, but pharmacokinetic data are limited. This study sought to characterise the absorption of lidocaine injectate ...
A local anesthetic and cardiac depressant used as an antiarrhythmia agent. Its actions are more intense and its effects more prolonged than those of procaine but its duration of action is shorter than that of bupivacaine or prilocaine.
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)
Methods to repair breaks in abdominal tissues caused by trauma or to close surgical incisions during abdominal surgery.
Pathological elevation of intra-abdominal pressure (>12 mm Hg). It may develop as a result of SEPSIS; PANCREATITIS; capillary leaks, burns, or surgery. When the pressure is higher than 20 mm Hg, often with end-organ dysfunction, it is referred to as abdominal compartment syndrome.
Muscles of the anterolateral abdominal wall consisting of the external oblique and the internal oblique muscles. The external abdominal oblique muscle fibers extend from lower thoracic ribs to the linea alba and the iliac crest. The internal abdominal oblique extend superomedially beneath the external oblique muscles.
