Thoracic Epidural Analgesia vs Surgical Site Infiltration With Liposomal Bupivacaine Following Open Gynecologic Surgery

2019-10-11 10:03:46 | BioPortfolio


The goal of this study is to test the hypothesis that surgical site infiltration with liposomal bupivacaine (LB) is non-inferior to and more cost effective than thoracic epidural analgesia (TEA) for patients undergoing open gynecologic surgery on an established enhanced recovery program (ERP) using a non-inferiority randomized trial design. The impact of TEA and surgical site infiltration with LB on neuroendocrine and inflammatory mediators of surgical stress response (SSR) will also be investigated as a translational endpoint.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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)

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.

A widely used local anesthetic agent.

A local anesthetic with rapid onset and long action, similar to BUPIVACAINE.

Circumscribed collections of suppurative material occurring in the spinal or intracranial EPIDURAL SPACE. The majority of epidural abscesses occur in the spinal canal and are associated with OSTEOMYELITIS of a vertebral body; ANALGESIA, EPIDURAL; and other conditions. Clinical manifestations include local and radicular pain, weakness, sensory loss, URINARY INCONTINENCE, and FECAL INCONTINENCE. Cranial epidural abscesses are usually associated with OSTEOMYELITIS of a cranial bone, SINUSITIS, or OTITIS MEDIA. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p710 and pp1240-1; J Neurol Neurosurg Psychiatry 1998 Aug;65(2):209-12)
