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...
Ropivacaine, a long-acting amide local anesthetic agent, has been demonstrated to inhibit glutamatergic transmission. Glutamate neurotoxicity plays a pivotal role in the pathogenesis of brain disorder...
Although laparoscopic hysterectomy, a worldwide popular surgery, ensures faster recovery and less postoperative pain than with laparotomic hysterectomy, immediate pain control still improving postoper...
The direct anti-proliferative and pro-apoptotic effects of local anesthetics have been well documented in various cancers. However, whether local anesthetics affect cancer metastasis and their underly...
The volume-duration relationship using low concentrations of ropivacaine for peripheral nerve blocks is unknown, even though low concentrations of ropivacaine are increasingly used clinically. We inve...
Local anesthetics (LAs) are increasingly used as therapeutics due to their multiple molecular effects. They may be potential agents also in gynecology and reproductive medicine. The objective of this ...

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. ...
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
