Spinal Versus General Anesthesia for Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy under regional anesthesia alone has been reported only occasionally in the past; all these reports included patients unfit to receive general anesthesia, mainly patients with severe chronic obstructive airway disease. Regional anesthesia has been used for laparoscopy in fit patients almost exclusively in combination with general anesthesia, in ...

Phase N/A

Creation of Arteriovenous Ante-brachial Fistula Under Axillary Block Versus Local Anesthesia : Impact on Early Complications

Recommended by the KDOQI vascular access guidelines, antebrachial arteriovenous fistula is the best primary vascular access for hemodialysis in patients with end stage renal disease. The primary complications are common, of the order of 10-36 %, including lack of maturation and dominated by stenosis and thrombosis. Local anesthesia associated with ...

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 the DentalVibe Injection System on Pain During Local Anesthesia Injections in Children

Up to 50 children between the ages of 5-11 years will participate in this randomized, controlled, split-mouth study. There will be no gender restrictions used in this study. Participants will be recruited from a continuous sample of patient seen at the UNMC pediatric dental clinic and will be selected based ...

Phase N/A

A clinical trial seeking patients for a research study for the treatment of Ankle Fracture Surgery, Chronic Pain, Regional anesthesia

This pilot study will test the hypothesis that prolonged regional peripheral nerve block will reduce development of chronic pain in patients undergoing surgery for ankle fracture. Regional nerve block using local anesthetics delivered by ambulatory pump is used in some types of surgeries but is not routine for ankle fracture ...


Cognitive Recovery After Electroconvulsive Therapy and General Anesthesia

Seizures are often associated with loss of consciousness, possibly through effects on sub-cortical arousal systems, disruption of cortical-subcortical interactions, and ultimately through depressed neocortical function. Furthermore, people are often confused in the post-ictal state even when consciousness returns after a seizure. Disrupted cognitive function during the postictal phase has not ...

Phase N/A

Comparing Low-dose Bupivacaine With Epidural Volume Extension to Standard Bupivacaine Dosing for Short Obstetric Procedures

Due to risks to both the mother and fetus, neuraxial anesthesia - spinal, epidural, or combined spinal-epidural (CSE) - is preferred over general anesthesia for all obstetrical procedures. However, one downside to neuraxial anesthesia is the increased time patients have to stay in the post-anesthesia care unit (PACU) due to ...


Does Single Injection Adductor Canal Block Improve Postoperative Analgesia in Patients Receiving Periarticular Local Anesthesia Injections for Total Knee Arthroplasty?

The purpose of the study is to determine the effect of a single injection adductor canal block (ACB) on pain scores within 24 hours post total knee arthroplasty (TKA).

Phase N/A

Remifentanil And Local Anesthesia Compared With Local Anesthesia For The Insertion Of Central Venous Catheters

At present, there is no reference protocol for Central Venous Catheter (CVC) insertion assuring analgesia, anxiolysis and safety. Medical teams use various levels of analgesia and anesthesia to realize this gesture, from single local anesthesia to general anesthesia. Remifentanil has been shown to decrease pain scores for insertion and removal ...
