Regional Anesthesia and Breast Cancer Recurrence

Surgery is the primary and most effective treatment of breast cancer, but residual disease in the form of scattered micrometastases and tumor cells are usually unavoidable. Whether minimal residual disease results in clinical metastases is a function of host defense and tumor survival and growth. At least three perioperative factors ...


Use of Sedation and Local Anesthesia in Meatotomy: A Prospective Comparison Study

Background- Meatal stenosis requiring surgery occurs more often in circumcised than in uncircumcised boys, with an estimated rate of 7.3%. At our institute, meatotomy is usually performed under general anesthesia and penile block is routinely added after induction. Recently, several reports have described the performance of meatotomy as an office ...


A Study to Compare the Long-term Outcomes After Two Different Anaesthetics

There is considerable evidence that most general anaesthetics modulate brain development in animal studies. The impact is greater with longer durations of exposure and in younger animals. There is great controversy over whether or not these animal data are relevant to human clinical scenarios. The changes seen in preclinical studies ...


Effect of Combined Use of Naloxone and Tramacet on Postop Analgesia in Elderly Patients Having Joint Replacement Surgery

Patients over 70 years of age, scheduled for joint replacement surgery will be randomized to tramacet/ naloxone plus morphine PCA or to morphine PCA to assess quality of analgesia in the postoperative period. The primary objective is to determine opioid use during combined use of oral tramacet and naloxone infusion ...


Use of Regional Anesthesia in Hip Arthroscopy

Patients undergoing hip arthroscopy for hip impingement at the investigator's institution often have regional anesthesia (a nerve block) prior to the procedure to help prevent and/or reduce pain following the procedure. The investigators are interested in determining benefits as well as potential adverse effects of utilizing regional anesthesia in patients ...


IV Dexamethasone for Prolongation of Peripheral Nerve Block

18 healthy volunteers aged 18-50 will be recruited (6 patients in each dosing group). Each volunteer will receive two forearm median nerve blocks separated by a two week washout period. One block will be conducted alongside an infusion of normal saline (control). The other block will be conducted alongside a ...


Clinical Trial of Thoracoscopic Bullectomy Surgery Under Spontaneous Ventilating Anesthesia

Intubated anesthesia with single lung mechanical ventilation (IASLV) is considered the standard of care in VATS. However, this type of anesthesia has been associated with several adverse effects, which can trigger complications and increase the overall surgical risk. In order to avoid intubated-anesthesia-related adverse effects, nonintubated strategies have been proposed ...


Sphenopalatine Block or Epidural Bloodpatch for Post Dural Puncture Headache: Randomized Controlled Trial

Introduction: Recently sphenopalatine block emerged as an alternative to epidural blood patch for post dural puncture headache but the investigators do not know if it has significant efficacy when compared to epidural blood patch. Method: randomized clinical trial where patients with moderate to severe post dural puncture pain will randomly ...


Comparison of Analgesic Effect of Volatile Anesthetics

Volatile anesthetics vary in their relative hypnotic potency. Recent studies demonstrated that equi-minimum alveolar concentration of various volatile anesthetic agents may produce different bispectral index values. However, the difference between analgesic effects of volatile anesthetics have not yet been investigated. The purpose of this clinical trial is to compare analgesic ...


Efficacy of Opioid-free Anesthesia in Reducing Postoperative Pain in Chronic Pain Patients Undergoing Spinal Surgery

The objective of this trial is to determine whether an opioid-free general anesthetic (OFA) technique utilizing ketamine, dexmedetomidine, and lidocaine infusions can help reduce postoperative pain in opiate-dependent chronic pain patients (CPPs) undergoing spine surgery when compared with traditional opioid-containing techniques. It is expected that this OFA regimen will have ...
