Intra-operative Uterosacral Ligament Bupivacaine Injection During Minimally Invasive Hysterectomy

2019-11-11 17:49:24 | BioPortfolio


This is proof of concept, phase I randomized controlled trial studying a short acting non-opioid anesthetic, bupivacaine to improve post-operative pain in gynecologic surgery patients. Patients who are undergoing minimally invasive (laparoscopic or robotic) hysterectomy will be randomized to receive no uterosacral injection, normal saline uterosacral injection, or 0.25% bupivacaine uterosacral injection just prior to colpotomy (incision around the cervix and removal of uterus) during minimally invasive hysterectomy.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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).

Pain during the period after surgery.

A narcotic analgesic that can be used for the relief of most types of moderate to severe pain, including postoperative pain and the pain of labor. Prolonged use may lead to dependence of the morphine type; withdrawal symptoms appear more rapidly than with morphine and are of shorter duration.

Abdominal symptoms after removal of the GALLBLADDER. The common postoperative symptoms are often the same as those present before the operation, such as COLIC, bloating, NAUSEA, and VOMITING. There is pain on palpation of the right upper quadrant and sometimes JAUNDICE. The term is often used, inaccurately, to describe such postoperative symptoms not due to gallbladder removal.

Relief of PAIN, without loss of CONSCIOUSNESS, through ANALGESIC AGENTS administered by the patients. It has been used successfully to control POSTOPERATIVE PAIN, during OBSTETRIC LABOR, after BURNS, and in TERMINAL CARE. The choice of agent, dose, and lockout interval greatly influence effectiveness. The potential for overdose can be minimized by combining small bolus doses with a mandatory interval between successive doses (lockout interval).
