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...
Two regional anesthesia techniques already in use in common clinical practice -paravertebral block and pectoral nerve block (PECS block) are compared in a randomized case-control study, in...
Use of spinal anesthesia (SA) in children may address concerns about potential neurocognitive effects of general anesthesia. We used near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) to assess the effects of SA on ce...
Effect of Intercostal Nerve Block and Nephrostomy Tract Infiltration with Ropivacaine on Postoperative Pain Control after Tubeless Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy: a Prospective, Randomized, and Case-Controlled Trial.
To determine the efficacy of intercostal nerve block (ICBN) and nephrostomy tract infiltration (NTI) with ropivacaine in patients undergoing tubeless percutaneous nephrolithotomy (TPCNL).
To investigate the effect of dexmedetomidine adding to ropivacaine for continuous femoral nerve block on the improvement of postoperative sleep quality in elderly patients after total knee arthroplast...
Guilt is a core feature of dementia caregivers' experiences following placement. This study describes and validates a new assessment tool for monitoring caregiver adjustment after placement.
A patient presented with symptomatic third degree atrioventricular block requiring emergency transvenous pacemaker placement. During the procedure, wireless digital radiographs tracked the position of...
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.
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.
Impaired impulse conduction from HEART ATRIA to HEART VENTRICLES. AV block can mean delayed or completely blocked impulse conduction.
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. ...
