Clinical Trials [1359 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Epidural Clonidine for Postoperative Hyperalgesia

We propose performing a study in which we compare the effects of bupivacaine and fentanyl with a different drug combination − bupivacaine and clonidine. The principal research questions ...

Cognitive Impairment Following Sedation for Colonoscopy With Propofol, Midazolam and Fentanyl Combinations

Our hypothesis is that adding midazolam and/or fentanyl to propofol sedation for elective outpatient colonoscopy increases cognitive impairment at hospital discharge without improving intr...

Propofol and Fentanyl Versus Midazolam and Fentanyl for Endoscopy Sedation in Cirrhotic Patients

The purpose of this study is to compare propofol associated with fentanyl versus midazolam plus fentanyl for sedation during diagnosis or therapeutic upper gastrointestinal endoscopy (UGE)...

Spinal Anesthesia for Cesarean Delivery: Bupivacaine With or Without Fentanyl

The safest form of anesthesia for Cesarean section is a spinal anesthetic. All spinal anesthetics contain a local anesthetic and/or a narcotic. A drug named bupivacaine is the most commo...

Tetracaine Combined Spinal Epidural (CSE) Versus Bupivacaine CSE

The investigators hypothesis is that spinal tetracaine with fentanyl and epinephrine used for CSE labor analgesia volume will last a significantly longer period of time that that of spinal...

Fascia iliaca blockade with the addition of liposomal bupivacaine vs. plain bupivacaine for perioperative pain management following hip arthroscopy.

A newer formulation of bupivacaine, encapsulated within carrier molecules, has garnered attention for its role in providing extended post-operative analgesia. The purpose was to evaluate the addition ...

Bupivacaine Versus Liposomal Bupivacaine For Pain Control.

Local infiltrations and regional blocks have been some of the effective ways employed to manage and control post-operative pain. One of the limitations of administration of local anesthesia drugs in p...

Bupivacaine Indirectly Potentiates Glutamate-induced Intracellular Calcium Signaling in Rat Hippocampal Neurons by Impairing Mitochondrial Function in Cocultured Astrocytes.

Bupivacaine induces central neurotoxicity at lower blood concentrations than cardiovascular toxicity. However, central sensitivity to bupivacaine is poorly understood. The toxicity mechanism might be ...

Effect of Baricity of Bupivacaine on Median Effective Doses for Motor Block.

BACKGROUND The median effective dose (ED50) of a drug gives the amount or dose of drug needed to produce effective therapeutic response or desired effect in at least 50% of the population taking it. O...

Analgesic Effect of Intraperitoneal Bupivacaine Hydrochloride After Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy: a Randomized Clinical Trial.

The indications for sleeve gastrectomy as a primary procedure for the surgical treatment of morbid obesity have increased worldwide. Pain is the most common complaint for patients on the first day aft...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A widely used local anesthetic agent.

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

A local anesthetic and cardiac depressant used as an antiarrhythmia agent. Its actions are more intense and its effects more prolonged than those of procaine but its duration of action is shorter than that of bupivacaine or prilocaine.

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)

An intravenous anesthetic agent which has the advantage of a very rapid onset after infusion or bolus injection plus a very short recovery period of a couple of minutes. (From Smith and Reynard, Textbook of Pharmacology, 1992, 1st ed, p206). Propofol has been used as ANTICONVULSANTS and ANTIEMETICS.
