The purpose of this prospective study is to compare pain levels in patients with topical negative pressure (TNP) dressings removed in a standard manner (i.v. or p.o. pain meds) compared to dressings removed after normal saline or lidocaine is injected retrograde up the suction tube into the foam prior to removal. Our null hypothesis is that there will be no difference in overall pain scores between the groups receiving saline injection and pain medications or just pain medications, compared to those with lidocaine injection and pain medications. Our objective is to disprove this null hypothesis with statistical significance.

Lidocaine and ketamine both are being used for perioperative analgesia. Perioperative lidocaine infusion has been shown to reduce postoperative pain and opioid consumption. Perioperative l...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate if a lidocaine infusion will provide benefit to pancreatectomy patients in regards to analgesia and return of bowel function.
To relieve post laminectomy pain, we have tried intraoperative perineural injection of lidocaine right after the exposure in expecting that this would be preemptive analgesia by blocking t...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate how urethral analgesia impacts voiding efficiency in healthy women. The investigator hypothesizes that anesthetizing the urethral with lidocaine ge...
This study will determine whether treatment with an extended-release opioid or topical lidocaine is effective in relieving distal symmetric lower extremity burning pain associated with mul...
Although placebo analgesia is a well-recognized phenomenon with important clinical implications, the possibility that placebo effects occur during sleep has received little attention. This experimenta...
Placebo analgesia is the beneficial effect that follows despite a pharmacologically inert treatment. Modern neuroimaging studies in humans have delineated the hierarchical brain regions involved in pl...
Lidocaine infusion therapy (LIT) is an effective treatment for relieving neuropathic pain (NeP). However, it remains unclear whether pain relief can be sustained through repeated lidocaine infusions. ...
This study evaluates the analgesic efficacy and emotional response of intravenous lidocaine infusion compared with placebo in patients with postherpetic neuralgia(PHN).
The management of postoperative pain and recovery is still unsatisfactory in a number of cases in clinical practice. Opioids used for postoperative analgesia are frequently associated with adverse eff...
Analgesia produced by the insertion of ACUPUNCTURE needles at certain ACUPUNCTURE POINTS on the body. This activates small myelinated nerve fibers in the muscle which transmit impulses to the spinal cord and then activate three centers - the spinal cord, midbrain and pituitary/hypothalamus - to produce analgesia.
Misunderstanding among individuals, frequently research subjects, of scientific methods such as randomization and placebo controls.
Antiarrhythmic agent pharmacologically similar to LIDOCAINE. It may have some anticonvulsant properties.
An effect usually, but not necessarily, beneficial that is attributable to an expectation that the regimen will have an effect, i.e., the effect is due to the power of suggestion.
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)
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. ...
