Total hip arthroplasty (THA) is one of the most successful orthopedic procedures to effectively relieve pain and restore function in patients with hip osteoarthritis.The Lumbar Plexus Block (LPB) is currently used as the standard regional anesthesia technique to provide postoperative pain management after THA. The lumbar plexus (LP) originates from T12 to L5. In general, multiple-needle nerve blockade procedure is needed to block different branches of LP. Therefore, we need more time to finish the regional anethesia procedure and it's not easy for an inexperienced anesthesiologist to master the technique absolutely. In addition, multiple injections will increase the discomfort of the patients. We aim to investigate the effects of lumbar plexus combined with quadratus lumborum block using single-needle technique with Shamrock method as an alternative regional anesthesia.

This is a prospective, monocentric, randomized study, comparing the effectiveness and tolerance of four different dosages of hypobaric ropivacaine for unilateral spinal anaesthesia during ...
The purpose of this study is to test whether the use of Ropivacaine and Mepivacaine are better in terms of effectiveness, cost, and safety than Bupivacaine as regional anesthetics in elect...
The purpose of this study is to assess if intraperitoneal nebulization of Ropivacaine 50 mg, 100 mg or 150 mg may prevent the use of morphine during the first day after laparoscopic chole...
The comparison of intrathecal ropivacaine with bupivacaine for knee arthroscopy remains controversial. We conduct a systematic review and meta-analysis to explore the efficacy of intrathecal ropivacai...
The documents on the median effective concentration of local analgesic were many in primiparas during labor analgesia. However, the studies were fewer in multiparas. To explore the analgesic requireme...

The present study aimed at assessing the efficiency of ropivacaine on post-operative pain for extraction of third molars.
Local infiltration analgesia has become a mainstay of pain control for total knee arthroplasty. This study compared the efficacy and cost between periarticular injection cocktails containing liposomal...
An autosomal recessive inherited disorder with multiple forms of phenotypic expression, caused by a defect in the oxidative decarboxylation of branched-chain amino acids (AMINO ACIDS, BRANCHED-CHAIN). These metabolites accumulate in body fluids and render a "maple syrup" odor. The disease is divided into classic, intermediate, intermittent, and thiamine responsive subtypes. The classic form presents in the first week of life with ketoacidosis, hypoglycemia, emesis, neonatal seizures, and hypertonia. The intermediate and intermittent forms present in childhood or later with acute episodes of ataxia and vomiting. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p936)
An IBUPROFEN-type anti-inflammatory analgesic and antipyretic. It is used in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.
Viscoelastic solutions that are injected into JOINTS in order to alleviate symptoms of joint-related disorders such as OSTEOARTHRITIS.
A rare, slowly progressive disorder of myelin formation. Subtypes are referred to as classic, congenital, transitional, and adult forms of this disease. The classic form is X-chromosome linked, has its onset in infancy and is associated with a mutation of the proteolipid protein gene. Clinical manifestations include TREMOR, spasmus nutans, roving eye movements, ATAXIA, spasticity, and NYSTAGMUS, CONGENITAL. Death occurs by the third decade of life. The congenital form has similar characteristics but presents early in infancy and features rapid disease progression. Transitional and adult subtypes have a later onset and less severe symptomatology. Pathologic features include patchy areas of demyelination with preservation of perivascular islands (trigoid appearance). (From Menkes, Textbook of Child Neurology, 5th ed, p190)
A condition caused by degenerative arthritis (see OSTEOARTHRITIS) of the METATARSOPHALANGEAL JOINT of the great toe and characterized by pain and limited dorsiflexion, but relatively unrestricted plantar flexion.
A joint is where two or more bones come together, like the knee, hip, elbow, or shoulder. Joints can be damaged by many types of injuries or diseases, including Arthritis - inflammation of a joint causes pain, stiffness, and swelling with ...
Arthroplasty is a surgical procedure to restore the integrity and function of a joint. A joint can be restored by resurfacing the bones. An artificial joint (called a prosthesis) may also be used. Various types of arthritis may affect the joints. Osteo...
