Transversus Abdominus Plane (TAP) block may reduce need for postoperative pain medications in patients undergoing laparoscopic hand assisted nephrectomy. Our hypothesis is that the TAP block will result in a significant reduction in pain scores and morphine requirements in the active group.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator), Primary Purpose: Supportive Care
TAP block placement with placebo, Placement of block with ropivacaine

Hypothesis: When performed under ultrasound guidance, there is improvement in the sensory and motor blockade obtained with stimulating popliteal catheters versus those placed without nerve...
There is limited information on using the ultrasonography for block placement concerning lipoma excision. A new type of regional blockade, performed under ultrasound, can ensure proper blo...
The primary objectives of this study are to define the extent of dermatomal anesthesia and anatomical spread of injectate (as defined by MRI imaging) that is provided by an ESP block at th...
Patients undergoing percutaneus nephrolipotomy (PNL) suffer from acute postoperative pain, despite a multimodal analgesic regime. We hypothesize that active (ropivacaine) transmuscular qu...
This prospective observational study aimed to examine the pharmacokinetics of ropivacaine in patients with chronic kidney disease after sciatic nerve block. Sciatic nerve block for foot a...
To investigate whether a 20-cc buffered 1% lidocaine paracervical block decreases pain during intrauterine device (IUD) placement.
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...
We recently showed that the novel combination of a superficial cervical plexus block, a suprascapular nerve block, and the lateral sagittal infraclavicular brachial plexus block (LSIB) provides an alt...
We evaluated the effect of pre-operative serratus anterior plane block on postoperative pain and opioid consumption after thoracoscopic surgery. We randomly allocated 89 participants to block with 30 ...
Thoracic paravertebral block is a technique for perioperative analgesia in patients undergoing thoracic, chest wall, or breast surgery, or for pain management with rib fractures, which can be performe...
Interruption of sympathetic pathways, by local injection of an anesthetic agent, at any of four levels: peripheral nerve block, sympathetic ganglion block, extradural block, and subarachnoid block.
Impaired conduction of cardiac impulse that can occur anywhere along the conduction pathway, such as between the SINOATRIAL NODE and the right atrium (SA block) or between atria and ventricles (AV block). Heart blocks can be classified by the duration, frequency, or completeness of conduction block. Reversibility depends on the degree of structural or functional defects.
Impaired or delayed impulse conduction between the right and left HEART ATRIA. Advanced interatrial blocks are often associated with arrhythmias (e.g., ATRIAL FLUTTER; and ATRIAL FIBRILLATION), direct conduction block via the Bachmann's bundle and concomitant left atrial enlargement. Syndrome of advanced interatrial block associated with SUPRAVENTRICULAR TACHYCARDIA is referred to as Bayes syndrome.
A local anesthetic of the ester type that has a slow onset and a short duration of action. It is mainly used for infiltration anesthesia, peripheral nerve block, and spinal block. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1016).
A form of heart block in which the electrical stimulation of HEART VENTRICLES is interrupted at either one of the branches of BUNDLE OF HIS thus preventing the simultaneous depolarization of the two ventricles.
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. ...
