The hypothesis of this study is that isolated use of local periarticular levobupivicaine injection during primary hip arthroplasty would improve post-operative pain control. Patients were randomised in the operating room to receive either a periarticular infiltration, or a placebo consisting of Saline. Morphine and analgesic consumption was recorded for each patient, while the modified McGill pain scale was used to determine the adequacy of analgesia and the benefit of the peri-articular infiltration. 91 patients were recruited, with 45 patients in the treatment group and 46 controls. The results were assessed after one year, once all the information from both treatment groups was collected.
The efficacy of periarticular injections during total knee arthroplasty is well established but there is little published data on their effect in primary hip arthroplasty. We hypothesized that isolated use of local periarticular levobupivicaine injection during primary hip arthroplasty would improve post-operative pain control. A double blinded, randomised, placebo-controlled trial on patients undergoing primary hip arthroplasty was performed. Patients were randomised in theatre to receive either a periarticular infiltration of 150mg levobupivicaine in 60mls of 0.9% Saline, or a placebo consisting of 60mls 0.9% Saline. Morphine and analgesic consumption was recorded for each patient, while the modified McGill pain scale was used to determine the adequacy of analgesia and the benefit of the peri-articular infiltration. 91 patients were recruited, with 45 patients in the treatment group and 46 controls. The results were assessed after one year, once all the information from both treatment groups was collected.

To establish adequate volume of levobupivacaine 0.25% in adductor canal nerve block in unilateral cruciate ligament of the knee reconstruction surgery.
45 pregnant women undergoing cesarean section were enrolled in the study in november 2006 to march 2007. 2 ml of 0.5% levobupivacaine was added to 1 ml of saline in group I, 1 ml of 15 µc...
This study aims at evaluating the effect of adding magnesium sulphate epidurally as an adjunct to levobupivacaine on the quality of anesthesia and perioperative pain relief in patients wit...
The aim of this study is to evaluate the addition of tramadol combined with levobupivacaine in the reduction of postoperative pain, postoperative opioid consumption after modified radical ...
The purpose of this study is to determine the effects of intraperitoneal administration of levobupivacaine on pain after laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
A comparison of the effective dose in 50% of patients (ED50) has suggested that the potency of levobupivacaine lies between that of bupivacaine and ropivacaine. However, for clinical purposes, knowled...
In this study, effects of the long-acting amide-type local anesthetic levobupivacaine on axonal conduction and excitability parameters of the rat sciatic nerve were thoroughly examined both in vitro a...
To determine the relationship of meniscal damage to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) features of compartment-specific patellofemoral joint (PFJ) osteoarthritis (OA) at baseline and 2 years later.
Osteoarthritis is the most common musculoskeletal condition. Due to the aging population and rising obesity worldwide, the projected increase in osteoarthritis is expected to be substantial. Since ost...
A genus of HALOBACTERIACEAE distinguished from other genera in the family by the presence of specific derivatives of TGD-2 polar lipids. Haloarcula are found in neutral saline environments such as salt lakes, marine salterns, and saline soils.
A family of gram-negative, moderately halophilic bacteria in the order Oceanospirillales. Members of the family have been isolated from temperate and Antarctic saline lakes, solar salt facilities, saline soils, and marine environments.
A species of PERCIFORMES commonly used in saline aquaculture.
An IBUPROFEN-type anti-inflammatory analgesic and antipyretic. It is used in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.
Water from natural sources which contain significant concentrations of dissolved salts such as sodium chloride.
Arthroplasty is a surgical procedure to restore the integrity and function of a joint. A joint can be restored by resurfacing the bones. An artificial joint (called a prosthesis) may also be used. Various types of arthritis may affect the joints. Osteo...
