2014-08-27 03:12:37 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Women undergoing elective cesarean delivery, performed under a standard spinal anesthesia, will be randomized to undergo either TAP block or incisional infiltration with local anesthetic, in addition to standard postoperative analgesia comprising regular acetaminophen, nefopam and ketoprofen. Short acting oral morphine will be given as a rescue treatment in case of severe pain.

A Randomized Controlled Trial of Comparing Ultrasound-Guided Transversus Abdominis Plane Block with Local Anesthetic Infiltration in Peritoneal Dialysis Catheter Implantation.

The ultrasound-guided transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block has been demonstrated as a useful analgesia technique in lower-abdomen surgeries. We hypothesized that it could be the principal anesthesi...

Sensory Assessment and Regression Rate of Bilateral Oblique Subcostal Transversus Abdominis Plane Block in Volunteers.

The analgesic effect and duration of a transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block remain controversial. Transversus abdominis plane blocks are effective for somatic/incisional pain but do not provide ana...

Ultrasound-guided lateral and subcostal transversus abdominis plane block in calves: A cadaveric study.

To describe and assess the ultrasound-guided transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block feasibility in calf cadavers, to compare two injection volumes and to evaluate possible undesired solution spreads.

Transversus abdominis plane (tap) block in laparoscopic colorectal surgery improves postoperative pain management: a meta-analysis.

Transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block is a locoregional anesthesia technique of growing interest in abdominal surgery. However, its efficacy following laparoscopic colorectal surgery is still debate...

Efficacy of Magnesium Sulfate Added to Local Anesthetic in a Transversus Abdominis Plane Block for Analgesia Following Total Abdominal Hysterectomy: A Randomized Trial.

Major abdominal surgeries are associated with severe pain, which can affect respiratory and cardiac functions if insufficiently treated; this increases postoperative morbidity.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Muscles forming the ABDOMINAL WALL including RECTUS ABDOMINIS, external and internal oblique muscles, transversus abdominis, and quadratus abdominis. (from Stedman, 25th ed)

A local anesthetic of the ester type that has a slow onset and a short duration of action. It is mainly used for infiltration anesthesia, peripheral nerve block, and spinal block. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1016).

Interruption of sympathetic pathways, by local injection of an anesthetic agent, at any of four levels: peripheral nerve block, sympathetic ganglion block, extradural block, and subarachnoid block.

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)

A local anesthetic that is similar pharmacologically to LIDOCAINE. Currently, it is used most often for infiltration anesthesia in dentistry. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1992, p165)
