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 cholecystectomy.
Intraperitoneal aerosolization of Bupivacaine 50 mg after laparoscopic cholecystectomy has been proved to significantly reduce postoperative pain, morphine consumption and incidence of postoperative nausea and vomiting in comparison with patients receiving direct instillation of Bupivacaine 50 mg or placebo.
Ropivacaine can be effectively administrated with non-heating nebulizers (AeronebPro®). In a recent study our group found that nebulization of Ropivacaine 30 mg with the AeronebPro® before or after laparoscopic cholecystectomy significantly reduced postoperative pain and morphine consumption. Nonetheless, most patients still need strong opioid based analgesia after surgery.
We hypothesize that intraperitoneal nebulization of Ropivacaine 100 mg and 150 mg (maximum recommended dose in adults 300 mg or up to 3 mg/kg) may prevent the use of morphine during the first day after surgery maintaining ropivacaine plasma levels below toxic concentration.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of pain relief after infusion of ropivacaine at port sites at end of laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC)compared with placebo (0.9% normal...
Comparative study of Ropivacaine and Ropivacaine with dexmedetomidine in transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block for post-operative analgesia in patients undergoing Caesarean Section.
The purpose of this study is to assess if intraperitoneal nebulization of Ropivacaine 150 mg may prevent the use of morphine during the first day after laparoscopic ovarian cyst surgery.
Pain still remains a limiting factor in early discharge of patients undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Almost all earlier studies done to compare the efficacy of local anaesthetics u...
In our prospective, randomized, placebo controlled and double-blinded study we will study the efficacy of intraperitoneal ropivacaine nebulization on pain relief during gynecological lapar...
Comparison of Intraperitoneal Nebulization of Ropivacaine with Ropivacaine-Fentanyl Combination for Pain Control Following Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy: A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Trial.
Intraperitoneal local anesthetic nebulization is a new and novel technique for providing pain relief following laparoscopic cholecystectomy. We compared the analgesic efficacy of intraperitoneal ropiv...
As a new generation of amide-type local anesthetics (LAs), ropivacaine has been widely used for pain management in clinical settings. Increasing evidence has shown that administration of ropivacaine c...
Clonidine used as a perineural adjuvant to ropivacaine, does not prolong the duration of sensory block when controlling for systemic effects: A paired, blinded, randomized trial in healthy volunteers.
Clonidine used as an adjuvant to ropivacaine have been shown to prolong the duration of peripheral nerve blocks. The mechanism of action remains unclear. We hypothesized, that clonidine used as an adj...
The primary objective of this study was to investigate whether dexmedetomidine could potentiate the analgesic efficacy of ropivacaine, when added to ropivacaine for wound infiltration in patients unde...
The abdominal incision for specimen extraction could trigger postoperative pain after laparoscopic colorectal resections (LCR). Continuous Wound Infusion (CWI) of ropivacaine may be a valuable option ...
Excision of the gallbladder through an abdominal incision using a laparoscope.
Surgical removal of the GALLBLADDER.
Placement of one of the surgeon's gloved hands into the ABDOMINAL CAVITY to perform manual manipulations that facilitate the laparoscopic procedures.
Surgical procedures conducted with the aid of computers. This is most frequently used in orthopedic and laparoscopic surgery for implant placement and instrument guidance. Image-guided surgery interactively combines prior CT scans or MRI images with real-time video.
Excision, in part or whole, of an intervertebral disk. The most common indication is disk displacement or herniation. In addition to standard surgical removal, it can be performed by percutaneous diskectomy (DISKECTOMY, PERCUTANEOUS) or by laparoscopic diskectomy, the former being the more common.
Pain is defined by the International Association for the Study of Pain as “an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage or described in terms of such damage”. Some illnesses can be excruci...
An anesthesiologist (US English) or anaesthetist (British English) is a physician trained in anesthesia and perioperative medicine. Anesthesiologists are physicians who provide medical care to patients in a wide variety of (usually acute) situations. ...
