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 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 ...

Interaction of Sevoflurane Propofol and Remifentanil in Anesthesia for Laparoscopic Surgery

Background In general anesthesia propofol or volatile anesthetic are usually combined with opioids and the synergy between hypnotics and opioids is used to reduce the dose of each component in order to minimize side effects and to allow a rapid recovery. Current pharmacodynamic interaction models allow to estimate the potency ...

Fixed Dose Spinal Bupivacaine for Cesarean Delivery

The study is designed to compare the effectiveness of spinal anesthesia performed with fixed dose of hyperbaric bupivacaine regardless of patient's height and weight and anesthesia with the dose of bupivacaine that is adjusted to their height. Our clinical experience shows that spinal anesthesia using specific, relatively high dose of ...

Trial of Injected Liposomal Bupivacaine vs Bupivacaine Infusion After Surgical Stabilization of Rib Fractures

Rib fractures represent a common injury pattern with high associated morbidity and mortality. Effective pain control in both the acute and long term periods remains a challenge. Surgical stabilization of rib fractures (SSRF) is now a recommended treatment for patients with severe chest wall injuries. In addition to stabilization of ...

Variable Perception of Cutaneous Stimulation

Perception of cutaneous sensory stimulation shows a large range of variability across multiple populations. Understanding this variability is critical to medical practice as interpretation of discomfort and pain is critical to diagnosis and treatment. Further, procedural medicine involves inflicting pain on patients in the form of injection of local anesthetic. ...

Analgesic Efficacy of Single-shot Erector Spinae Block for Thoracic Surgery

Purpose To investigate the postoperative analgesic effectiveness of the ultrasound-guided ESP block compared to a placebo injection for patients undergoing thoracoscopic wedge resection of the lung. Hypothesis Thoracoscopic surgery patients who receive an ESP block in addition to current standard of care, consisting of parenteral and enteral opioids and surgical ...

Protective Nerve Stimulation in Regional Anesthesia

All patients will get the regional block they need for the elective surgery. Before starting the block a standard monitoring will be established. After applying the monitoring the block will be performed by an experienced anesthetist in supervision of another experienced anesthetist. The nerve stimulator is set on a fixed ...

Gravity Flow Technique to Validate Proper Location of Epidural Needle Tip

The purpose of this study is to quantify the reliability of the gravity flow technique to accurately validate the position of the epidural needle tip when performing lumbar epidural analgesia in laboring women. This gravity flow technique was first described 26 years ago in 1991, and has been at NYU ...
