Localized Neuropathic Pain: Topical Treatment Versus Systemic Treatment

A multicentre, randomized, open-label comparative trial evaluating topical treatment options versus oral systemic treatment in adult patients suffering from localized neuropathic pain (LNP) syndromes. A wide variety of peripheral neuropathic pain syndromes will be included such as post-herpetic neuralgia (PHN), post-surgical NP/post-traumatic NP/scar pain, post-amputation NP, post-radiation therapy NP, complex …


Acute Headache Treatment in Pregnancy: Occipital Nerve Block vs PO Acetaminophen With Caffeine

This is an open label randomized controlled trial. Women who present to the MEU with headache will be assessed by trained nurse practitioners and/or OB/GYN residents. If the woman meets criteria for the study she will be enrolled by an MEU provider doing the primary assessment. See Figure 1 for …


Surgical Site Infiltration of Exparel vs TAP Block With Exparel in Patients Undergoing Laparotomy Via Midline Incision

Recent studies suggest surgical site infiltration of local anesthetic into the preperitoneal, subfascial and/or subcutaneous planes as an alternative approach. The literature suggests this offers superior pain relief and significantly reduced morphine consumption. This procedure has been shown to provide excellent analgesia in open inguinal hernia repair and colorectal procedures …


Effect of Perineural Dexamethasone on the Duration of Popliteal Nerve Block for Anesthesia After Ankle Surgery

This study is proposed to explore the effect of perineural dexamethasone on the duration of popliteal nerve block for analgesia after ankle surgery. After ankle or foot arthrodesis patients need a good analgesia. Nevertheless early mobilisation and discharge are important for the healing process after surgery. Peripheral nerve blocks have …


Opioid Free vs Opioid Based Anesthesia for Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy

The study has been approved by Bioethical Committee of Medical University of Warsaw. Informed written consent will be obtained from all patients. Sample size of 60 patients has been calculated based on the Altman normogram to obtain 30% reduction of postoperative opioid consumption with significance and power of 90%. Consenting …


SPG Blocks for Headaches

Having outperformed other agents in head-to-head trials, intravenous (IV) dopamine antagonists, such as prochlorperazine or metoclopramide, are generally considered the 1st line treatment for headaches in the ED. However, despite the relative effectiveness of prochlorperazine, a substantial number of patients who present to the ED with a headache still have …


Pre-hospital Nebulized Ketamine for Pain

Ketamine is a non-competitive N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA)/glutamate receptor complex antagonist that decreases pain by diminishing central sensitization, hyperalgesia, and "wind-up" phenomenon at the level of the spinal cord (dorsal ganglion) and central nervous system Ketamine administration in sub-dissociative doses (0.1-0.3 mg/kg) in prehospital settings and in the ED results in effective …


Magnesium Infusion for Pain Management in Critically Ill Trauma Patients

This is a single center, double blind, randomized controlled study to demonstrate the effectiveness of continuous, intravenous administration of magnesium sulfate as compared to placebo in decreasing pain in critically injured patients. Study Hypothesis The primary hypothesis is that continuous infusion magnesium sulfate will significantly decrease opioid requirements and pain …


Peripheral Nerve Blocks for Major Lower Extremity Amputations

Major lower extremity amputations (above knee amputation or below knee amputation) are common procedures performed for patients with end stage ischemia, infection, and/or disfiguration. Patients undergoing major lower extremity amputations have significant morbidity and mortality. Up to 95% of amputees report chronic pain, and inadequate pre- and postoperative pain control …


Lumbar Puncture in Emergency Under Nitrous OXide

Nitrous oxide (N2O) has analgesic and anxiolytic properties that are known for more than a century. Nonetheless, it's use during lumbar puncture in adults has only been investigated in a scheduled setting.Thus, this study is designed to evaluate the analgesic effect of N2O on the pain induced during lumbar puncture. …
