A clinical research study of spinal anesthesia

Brief description of study

The planned cesarean section is an intervention with a standard operating time of less than 40 minutes in trained teams. Hyperbaric Bupivacaine is the local anesthetic (LA) reference for these operations. But the duration of its motor block is generally greater than 3 hours. The purpose of this study is to show a reduction in motor block time with hyperbaric Prilocaine by at least 30 minutes, which would allow mothers and their children to return to the maternity ward earlier and thus improve the circulation of patients within the maternity's PACU.

Detailed Study Description

Prospective study, randomized into two parallel groups (Hyperbaric Prilocane versus hyperbaric Bupivacaine), double-blind, monocentric (Clinique Saint Roch in Montpellier).

The number of subjects required is 50 patients, 25 per group.

Clinical Study Identifier: NCT03433976
