Effect of Local Infiltration Analgesia in Total Hip Arthroplasty

2014-08-27 03:19:38 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of the study is to compare the effects of per-operative local infiltration analgesia with ropivacaine 0,2 % (150 ML) versus placebo on acute postoperative pain intensity after total hip arthroplasty.

The hypothesis is that local infiltration analgesia reduces the acute postoperative pain intensity.

Description

In spite of being one of the last century's most successful surgical procedures in treatment of advanced osteoarthritis total hip arthroplasty is still associated with postoperative pain and delayed rehabilitation. We therefore decided to evaluate the effects of per-operative local infiltration analgesia with ropivacaine 0,2 % (150 ML) versus placebo on acute postoperative pain intensity in a well defined, multimodal, fast-track setup after hip arthroplasty. The technique is widely used as standard treatment in many European centers despite its limited evidence.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A benzyl-indazole having analgesic, antipyretic, and anti-inflammatory effects. It is used to reduce post-surgical and post-traumatic pain and edema and to promote healing. It is also used topically in treatment of RHEUMATIC DISEASES and INFLAMMATION of the mouth and throat.

Syndromes which feature DYSKINESIAS as a cardinal manifestation of the disease process. Included in this category are degenerative, hereditary, post-infectious, medication-induced, post-inflammatory, and post-traumatic conditions.

Intraoperative computer-assisted 3D navigation and guidance system generally used in neurosurgery for tracking surgical tools and localize them with respect to the patient's 3D anatomy. The pre-operative diagnostic scan is used as a reference and is transferred onto the operative field during surgery.

Bacterial infections of the leptomeninges and subarachnoid space, frequently involving the cerebral cortex, cranial nerves, cerebral blood vessels, spinal cord, and nerve roots. The type of causative organism varies with age and clinical status (e.g., post-operative, immunodeficient, or post-traumatic states). Clinical manifestations include the acute onset of fever, stiff neck, altered mentation, seizures, and focal neurologic deficits. Death may occur within 24 hours of disease onset. Pathologic features include a purulent exudate in the subarachnoid space, and diffuse inflammation of neural and vascular structures. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1994, Ch24, pp1-5)

A type of pain that is perceived in an area away from the site where the pain arises, such as facial pain caused by lesion of the VAGUS NERVE, or throat problem generating referred pain in the ear.
