The Effect of Epidural Anesthesia on the Optic Nerve Sheath Diameter in Preeclampsia

2019-09-25 06:13:38 | BioPortfolio


This study aims to assess the effect of epidural anesthesia on the optic nerve sheath diameter in parturients with preeclampsia.


This prospective observational study will be performed in parturients, either with or without preeclampsia, who scheduled to undergo elective cesarean delivery under epidural anesthesia. Epidural anesthesia will be done according to the standard technique. Optic nerve sheath diameter (ONSD) will be measured before and after the epidural injection of anesthetic solutions using ultrasonography. The investigators will assess whether epidural anesthesia has effect on optic nerve sheath diameter of pregnant women, and the investigators will also compare ONSD between healthy parturients and parturients with preeclampsia. The investigators will evaluate the relationship between ONSD and disease severity of preeclampsia.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The relief of pain without loss of consciousness through the introduction of an analgesic agent into the epidural space of the vertebral canal. It is differentiated from ANESTHESIA, EPIDURAL which refers to the state of insensitivity to sensation.

Procedure in which an anesthetic is injected into the epidural space.

Epidural anesthesia administered via the sacral canal.

A variety of anesthetic methods such as EPIDURAL ANESTHESIA used to control the pain of childbirth.

The injection of autologous blood into the epidural space either as a prophylactic treatment immediately following an epidural puncture or for treatment of headache as a result of an epidural puncture.
