Erector Spinae Plane Block Versus Paravertebral Block

Paravertebral block (PVB) has been shown to provide excellent analgesia for major breast surgery. Advantages of a PVB technique include reduced postoperative pain, analgesic consumption, opioid-related side effects, and shorter post anesthesia care unit (PACU) stay. There is also evidence to suggest that PVB may have a favorable impact on ...

Phase N/A

Comparison on Succinylcholine Onset Time Assessed by Train of Four Stimulation Versus Clinical Judgment During Rapid Sequence Induction of Anesthesia

Succinylcholine is a myorelaxant agent often used during rapid sequence induction for patients who need to undergo general anesthesia but who are at risk of pulmonary aspiration of gastric content. Whereas other myorelaxant agents are monitored with train of four stimulation to assess onset and duration, few anesthesiologists use train ...

Phase N/A

Gastroesophageal Function During Anesthesia

Background: General anesthesia may predispose patients to aspiration of gastroesophageal contents because of depression of protective reflexes during loss of consciousness. The laparoscopy would increase the intra-abdominal pressure, which is regarded as a predisposing factor of gastroesophageal reflux during the anesthesia. The lower esophageal sphincter is the important physiological mechanisms ...

Phase N/A

Cancer and Anesthesia: Survival After Radical Surgery - a Comparison Between Propofol or Sevoflurane Anesthesia

The study will be completed in accordance with Declaration of Helsinki, Good Clinical Practice (GCP) and applicable regulatory requirements. The study will include approximately 8,000 pts from about 10 sites in Sweden and probably also from one or two international sites. The population will be pts that are scheduled for ...

Phase

Posterior Fossa Decompression With or Without Duraplasty for Chiari Type I Malformation With Syringomyelia

Participants with Chiari Malformation type I and syringomyelia will be randomized to either have a posterior fossa decompression done with or without duraplasty. The participant will then return to the neurosurgeon's office at the following time points which are consistent with standard of care practice: < 6 weeks, 3-6 months, ...

Phase N/A

Anesthesia for Pain After Ankle Fracture Surgery

This pilot study will test the hypothesis that prolonged regional peripheral nerve block will reduce development of chronic pain in patients undergoing surgery for ankle fracture. Regional nerve block using local anesthetics delivered by ambulatory pump is used in some types of surgeries but is not routine for ankle fracture ...

Phase

A Study Comparing the Laryngeal Mask Airway Supreme With the Laryngeal Mask Airway Protector In the Ambulatory Surgery Unit

Outpatients planned for elective minor surgery, routinely done with LMA, will be asked to participate in the study. The patient is preoxygenated for 3 min. Anaesthesia is induced with 0.15 mcg/kg sufentanil and 1 - 4 mg/kg propofol. Routine monitoring is used together with BIS-monitoring. No neuromuscular relaxing agent is ...

Phase N/A

Ultrasonography For Radial Artery Diameter Measurement And Its Correlation With Allen Test

Arterial catheterization for continuous hemodynamic monitoring or frequent blood sampling is a common procedure in anesthesia and critical care setting. The most commonly used site for arterial catheterization is the radial artery because of its superficial course, alternate blood supply to hand via ulnar artery and a low rate of ...

Phase N/A

Anesthesia Geriatric Evaluation and Quality of Life After Peripheral Vascular Surgery

Introduction The percentage of elderly in the general population is increasing rapidly. Currently, the Dutch population comprises for one fifth of persons aged 65 years or older and recent estimates show this will increase to roughly a quarter in the next 20 years. Since th incidence of peripheral arterial disease ...

Phase N/A

Pre-Operative Single Shot Rectus Sheath Block

Purpose: To improve analgesia and reduce opioid consumption in patients undergoing major urologic surgery. Hypothesis: Patients receiving pre-operative single shot rectus sheath blockade in addition to continuous rectus sheath catheters will use less PCA opioid in the first 24 hours post-operatively compared to patients receiving continuous rectus sheath blockade for ...
