Ultrasound-assisted Versus Conventional Landmark-guided Spinal Anesthesia in Patients With Abnormal Spinal Anatomy

Spinal anesthesia can be challenging in patients with lumbar scoliosis or previous lumbar spine surgery. This study aims to evaluate whether the use of the ultrasound-assisted spinal anesthesia reduces the number of passes required to successful dural puncture compared with the conventional surface landmark-guided technique in patients with abnormal spinal ...

Phase N/A

Caudal vs Local Anesthesia in Hypospadias

The rationale to conduct a definitive study comes as a result of the limitations inherent in the pre-existing literature due to selection bias, and the primarily retrospective nature of the current evidence, which is unclear whether caudal blocks result in higher complication rates following hypospadias repair. The only way to ...

Phase N/A

Erector Spinae Plane Block Versus Paravertebral Block

Paravertebral block (PVB) has been shown to provide excellent analgesia for major breast surgery. Advantages of a PVB technique include reduced postoperative pain, analgesic consumption, opioid-related side effects, and shorter post anesthesia care unit (PACU) stay. There is also evidence to suggest that PVB may have a favorable impact on ...

Phase N/A

Pre-Operative Single Shot Rectus Sheath Block

Purpose: To improve analgesia and reduce opioid consumption in patients undergoing major urologic surgery. Hypothesis: Patients receiving pre-operative single shot rectus sheath blockade in addition to continuous rectus sheath catheters will use less PCA opioid in the first 24 hours post-operatively compared to patients receiving continuous rectus sheath blockade for ...

Phase N/A

Local Anesthesia in Radial Catheterization

A total of 444 consecutive patients, who are referred for elective coronary angiography to 1st Cardiology Department cathlab, with the suspicion of coronary artery disease (CAD) will be enrolled in this study. Exclusion criteria are acute coronary syndrome, previous ipsilateral transradial approach, Raynaud's syndrome, abnormal renal function with or without ...

Phase

Ultrasound-guided Peripheral Nerve Block Versus Forearm Bier's Block in Patients Undergoing Carpal Tunnel Release

Introduction In Belgium, several ways of anesthesia are used to perform hand surgery, being general anesthesia, intravenous regional anesthesia as well as locoregional anesthesia. Locoregional anesthesia and intravenous regional anesthesia are often performed since patients can be discharged from the hospital more rapidly. A forearm intravenous regional anesthesia (IVRA; mini-Bier's ...

Phase N/A

Treatment Prior to Injection and Biopsy of the Vulva

To diagnose skin conditions of the vulva and determine appropriate treatment, a biopsy is often taken as an outpatient procedure. Prior to biopsy, the skin is cleansed and injected with a numbing solution. These injections can be quite painful in this sensitive area. Ice has been used as topical anesthesia ...

Phase N/A

Efficacy and Safety of Electric Stimulation-guided Epidural Anesthesia for Cesarean Section

Investigators will place epidural catheter in the epidural space using loss of resistance technique, and will confirm correct placement of the epidural catheter using electric stimulation. Epidural catheter placement, electric stimulation, and confirmation of response is followed: Patients will be placed in the left lateral decubitus position. The site will ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Local Infiltration Anesthesia With Ropivacaine on Postoperative Pain After Hip Hemiarthroplasty

At St.Olavs Hospital each year about 400 patients are treated for femoral neck fractures, 250 of them receiving hemiarthroplasty. Implementation of fast-track clinical pathways reduces morbidity and enhances recovery of patients undergoing hemiarthroplasty. One of the key prerequisites for early rehabilitation is optimized pain relief. Local infiltration anesthesia with Ropivacaine ...

Phase N/A

Norepinephrine Versus Phenylephrine Variable Infusion in Cesarean Delivery

Maternal hypotension is a common complication after spinal anesthesia for cesarean delivery (CD). Many vasopressors have been used for prevention of post-spinal hypotension (PSH) during CD; however, the optimum protocol for prophylaxis is not established yet. Phenylephrine (PE) is a popular vasopressor used in obstetric anesthesia; however, its use is ...
