Regional Anesthesia for Major Surgery of the Foot. Levobupivacaïne Ropivacaine 0.5% Versus 0.5% in the Sciatic Block Through médiofémorale

2014-07-24 14:11:54 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Ropivacaine 0.5% and 0.5% in levobupivacaïne are used in regional anesthesia for major surgery of the foot. The literature does not highlight a significant difference in terms of onset of action between these two molecules to block the sciatic nerve [4]. Our hypothesis is that this lack of difference is due to the use of a neurostimulator for locating the injection site (indiscriminate nature of the anatomical approach to the sciatic nerve). Indeed, the sensitivity of neurostimulation is low compared with ultrasound [58] and ultrasound, for accurate visualization of the deposit of the local anesthetic around the nerve to improve the quality of the block and reduce the onset of action of local anesthetic [46, 47].

The investigators propose to make a comparative trial between levobupivacaïne 0.5% ropivacaine and 0.5% under the control of the ultrasound as part of a sciatic nerve block. The use of ultrasound will reduce the variability of results because the changes would be linked exclusively to the local anesthetic. The investigators test the hypothesis that levobupivacaïne gives better results in terms of onset of action than ropivacaine.

Anterior Suprascapular Nerve Block or Low-Volume Supraclavicular Nerve Block?

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Mechanical compression of nerves or nerve roots from internal or external causes. These may result in a conduction block to nerve impulses (due to MYELIN SHEATH dysfunction) or axonal loss. The nerve and nerve sheath injuries may be caused by ISCHEMIA; INFLAMMATION; or a direct mechanical effect.

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).

Interruption of the conduction of impulses in peripheral nerves or nerve trunks by the injection of a local anesthetic solution. (Stedman, 26th ed)

Drugs that block nerve conduction when applied locally to nerve tissue in appropriate concentrations. They act on any part of the nervous system and on every type of nerve fiber. In contact with a nerve trunk, these anesthetics can cause both sensory and motor paralysis in the innervated area. Their action is completely reversible. (From Gilman AG, et. al., Goodman and Gilman's The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics, 8th ed) Nearly all local anesthetics act by reducing the tendency of voltage-dependent sodium channels to activate.
