Methadone and Ketamine for Spinal Surgery

Methadone is an opioid with the potential to provide prolonged and constant analgesia. It has a half-life that is significantly longer than other clinically-used opioids (25-52 hours). This unique property of methadone suggests that a single dose administered in the operating room can result in extended pain relief following surgery. ...


Predicting Understanding and Speeding Recovery After TKA

The investigators propose a two-site, longitudinal, double-blind, randomized clinical intervention study to examine three specific aims: Aim 1: Characterize the dynamic pain experience, activity, and cognitive response after TKA and determine patterns of recovery in these domains Aim 2: Test whether gabapentin alters time course of recovery after TKA in ...


Ketamine for Pain in the Emergency Department

A literature review was performed that searched for randomized clinical trials involving ketamine IV boluses for acute pain in the Emergency Department. Studies involving continuous infusions or intranasal routes of ketamine administration were not included. Thirteen randomized clinical trials were identified meeting this criteria. None of these trials directly compared ...


Epidural and Intravenous Patient-Controlled Analgesia Following Lumbar Spinal Fusion Surgery

Study Design: Prospective study of 58 subjects undergoing elective Lumbar Spinal Fusion (1-3 levels- posterior approach) at UTSW Zale Lipshy University Hospital with: Continuous Lumbar Epidural Analgesia (Patient-Controlled Epidural Analgesia- PCEA groups) Intravenous Patient-Controlled Analgesia (IV PCA) Study Interventions - The intervention to be evaluated in this study is epidural ...


Dexmedetomidine Supplemented Analgesia and Incidence of Postoperative Delirium

Delirium is a state of acutely occurred and transient cerebral dysfunction. It is a common complication in elderly patients after surgery. A systematic review showed that an average of 36.8% (range 0 to 73.5%) of surgical patients developed postoperative delirium, and its occurrence increased with age. According to our previous ...


Safety and Efficacy of LMWH Versus Rivaroxaban in Chinese Patients Hospitalized With Acute Coronary Syndrome

Acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is a serious and life threatening condition. Anticoagulation during the acute phase of ACS is effective in reducing ischaemic events. The combination regimen of anticoagulation with dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) strategy is more effective than either treatment alone. The most widely used parenteral anticoagulation agent in ...


Examining the Role of Improved NSAID Management in Treating Dysmenorrhea and Bladder Pain

The goal of this study is to see if optimized use of naproxen for treatment of dysmenorrhea will improve pain report from baseline. In addition, we will determine whether cross-organ influences from the uterus on bladder pain sensitivity change from baseline after reduced menstrual pain experience over six months. Finally, ...


Pec Infiltration With Liposomal Bupivacaine for Breast Surgery

For the Pec infiltration, the patient will be in the supine position. The pectoralis major and pectoralis minor muscle layers will be identified via ultrasound. Using sterile technique, a nerve block needle will be inserted and advanced under ultrasound guidance until it is below the fascial covering of the pec ...


Intra-operative Lidocaine Infusion in Preventing CPSP Post VATs

It is not surprising that complications related to surgical procedures occur. Chronic Post Surgical Pain (CPSP) is considered one of the more common surgical complications, despite all the advances in understanding acute pain and the development of new modalities for pain management 1. Chronic Post Surgical Pain was defined by ...


Optimal Volume Rate and Interval of Bolus Nerve Catheters for Shoulder Surgery

The purpose of this study is to determine the ideal delivery of local anesthetics for postoperative analgesia when using continuous interscalene peripheral nerve catheters for shoulder surgery. New technology has emerged with electronic pumps that permit intermittent mandatory boluses of local anesthetic to be delivered in addition to continuous infusions. ...
