The purpose of the study is to explore the potential usefulness of a heated lidocaine 70 mg/tetracaine 70 mg topical patch for the treatment of pain associated with shoulder impingement syndrome


The purpose of this single center, 2-week open-label pilot study is to explore the potential usefulness of a heated lidocaine 70 mg and tetracaine 70 mg topical patch for the treatment of pain associated with shoulder impingement syndrome. A number of efficacy variables will be employed to evaluate their utility for assessing painful responses in this population.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An electrophysiologic technique for studying cells, cell membranes, and occasionally isolated organelles. All patch-clamp methods rely on a very high-resistance seal between a micropipette and a membrane; the seal is usually attained by gentle suction. The four most common variants include on-cell patch, inside-out patch, outside-out patch, and whole-cell clamp. Patch-clamp methods are commonly used to voltage clamp, that is control the voltage across the membrane and measure current flow, but current-clamp methods, in which the current is controlled and the voltage is measured, are also used.

Compression of the rotator cuff tendons and subacromial bursa between the humeral head and structures that make up the coracoacromial arch and the humeral tuberosities. This condition is associated with subacromial bursitis and rotator cuff (largely supraspinatus) and bicipital tendon inflammation, with or without degenerative changes in the tendon. Pain that is most severe when the arm is abducted in an arc between 40 and 120 degrees, sometimes associated with tears in the rotator cuff, is the chief symptom. (From Jablonski's Dictionary of Syndromes and Eponymic Diseases, 2d ed)

A medicated adhesive patch placed on the skin to deliver a specific dose of medication into the bloodstream.

Skin tests in which the sensitizer is applied to a patch of cotton cloth or gauze held in place for approximately 48-72 hours. It is used for the elicitation of a contact hypersensitivity reaction.
