EZ-blocker Versus Left Sided Double Lumen Tube in Adult Patients for Thoracic Surgery

One lung ventilation (OLV) is frequently used in thoracic surgery to promote surgical exposure and improve operative conditions. At this time, there are two different approaches to OLV in routine use in adult thoracic surgery. One approach is to use of a double lumen tube (DLT). The other approach is ...

Phase N/A

Intercostal Liposomal Bupivacaine for the Management of Blunt Chest Wall Trauma

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of liposomal bupivacaine to provide analgesia via paravertebral intercostal nerve block following significant blunt chest trauma, minimizing adverse outcomes, length of stay and overall narcotic use. The primary outcome of the study is to compare requirements between the bupivacaine group ...


The Management of Traumatic Hemothoraces

Chest injuries are common in patients with polytrauma and are responsible for approximate 25% of all trauma-related mortalities. Traumatic injuries to the thorax often result in the accumulation of blood within the pleural space (i.e. a hemothorax (HTX)). The management of HTX remains a clinical dilemma when the volume of ...

Phase N/A

Rib Fixation for Clinically Severe Rib Fractures From Trauma

This study will compare the outcomes of patients between two standard of care pathways for rib trauma: those who have their ribs plated versus those who are managed by modern critical care and pain control. A study nurse (project) coordinator will identify subjects based on inclusion and exclusion criteria, then ...

Phase N/A

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 ...


PEF-Block & Ribs Fractures

Rib fractures are frequent injuries found approximately in 10% severe trauma patient. Rib fractures were correlated in many studies with a higher morbidity and mortality. This impaired outcome is mainly due to pulmonary complications consequences including especially pulmonary contusions. Frequently, patients present difficulty deep breathing and coughing. These adverse effects ...

Phase N/A

Lidocaine Infusions for Rib Fractures

Patients with traumatic rib fractures not receiving regional anesthesia through a epidural or nerve block catheter will be recruited for the study. Once enrolled, they will be randomized to receive either intravenous lidocaine or intravenous saline for control of pain related to their rib fractures. In addition, they will receive ...


Nebulized Morphine in Chest Trauma Patients: A Prospective Study

The aim of this study was to determine the predictive factors of nebulized morphine failure in patients with chest trauma and to establish a score based on these factors to guide the analgesic protocol. Methods: This is a prospective study carried out from 2014 to 2016 including patients aged 18 ...


Erector Spinae Plane (ESP) Versus Paravertebral Nerve (PVB) Blockade for Acute Unilateral Rib Fracture Pain

All interventions regarding the placement and management of ESP and paravertebral blocks in this study are consistent with existing standard of care practices at UPMC and utilize protocols that are already in use. In addition, by nature of being included in a research study, patients are likely to receive closer ...

Phase N/A

Serratus Plane Block for Rib Fractures

Patients admitted in emergency department with a chest trauma and ipsilateral multiple rib fractures, will be randomized as described above. All patients will receive the serratus block with a ropivacaine 0.37% solution 20 ml. Then, they will randomized to receive either a peripheral catheter placed above the 5th rib on ...
