The purpose of this study is to determine whether levobupivacaine is effective in the acute postoperative pain treatment in periprosthetic breast augmentation
Single center, prospective, observational study to assess serum concentration of ingredients used in multi-ingredient, topical compounded medications from Medimix Specialty Pharmacy.
Ukraine is a newly sovereign country in Eastern Europe with a large burn population. With the collapse of the Soviet Union, burn programs have become decentralized and resources for maintaining facilities have dwindled. Patients frequently present with debilitating burn injuries and often do not receive necessary treatment secondary to limited resources and cost of treatment. The investigators have established an annual medical mission, outreach clinic and telemedicine relationship with hospitals and burn centers in Ukraine in an effort to improve burn care. One focus is post-operative pain control. The investigators have noticed a pattern of anxiety with children from the Ukraine surrounding dressing changes which they believe this is secondary to inadequate pain control in the immediate post-operative period including the initial dressing changes. The goal is to provide wound catheters with a continuous infusion of procaine in an attempt to reduce the pain experienced in the early post-operative period and specifically with dressing changes. There will be 200 participants, 12-65 years old who are receiving reconstructive plastic procedure with split-thickness skin grafts from lateral thigh in the study. 100 will receive the standard pain management Analgin/Metamizole 1 g IM; Ketorolac 3%- 30 mg IM regimen and 100 will receive wound catheters with continuous procaine infusion for 48 hours with the standard Analgin/Metamizole 1 g IM; Ketorolac 3%- 30 mg IM available for breakthrough pain. Pain scores will be assessed prior to dressing change, during dressing changes and at 30 minutes and 1 hour after dressing change.
This randomized clinical trial studies collaborative targeted case management in improving functional status in patients with stage III-IV cancer. Collaborative targeted case management may improve functional status and preserve performance in patients with advanced cancer
Background Approximately 30 million children are treated in emergency departments each year in the United States, of which two to three million are children presenting with lacerations. Topical numbing medication is the standard of care in children with regard to pain control during laceration repair. While topical numbing medications are effective, children often require further pain control during laceration repair in the form of an injected numbing medication, which in itself is painful. No evidence currently exists regarding the concurrent use of oral pain medications to combat laceration procedural pain. Research Question Does the addition of ibuprofen or oxycodone to lidocaine, epinephrine, and tetracaine (LET) topical anesthetic provide more effective pain control than LET alone during laceration repair? Design This is a double-blinded, randomized-controlled study. Methods Subjects in all three groups will receive topical anesthetic. In addition to topical anesthetic, two groups of children will receive either of two oral analgesics, ibuprofen or oxycodone, while the third group will receive a placebo.
The anaesthetic management of patients undergoing total knee replacement is still not standardised. Epidural analgesia is common, but is associated with bilateral lower limb motor block and limited mobilisation. Spinal anaesthesia with intrathecal morphine provides good pain relief, but only for 12 to 16 hours, and is often associated with nausea and vomiting. Combined single injection femoral / sciatic blocks give good pain relief, but for a variable length of time (between 12 and 24 hours). In contrast, continuous femoral perineural infusion of local anaesthetic provides very good pain relief for several days. Pain relief is maintained by a constant infusion of local anaesthetic using an elastomeric ball. The investigators overriding aim is to develop a local anaesthetic regimen which offers complete pain relief for at least 48 hours, yet allows full mobilisation within 24 hours Given that ropivacaine may offer a more advantageous pharmacological profile (less lipid solubility) compared to levobupivacaine, the investigators feel it is pertinent to investigate the capacity of ropivacaine to prevent pain relief after surgery. Thus, the investigators aim in this study is to compare the ED50 of levobupivacaine with the ED50 of ropivacaine for preventive pain relief after total knee replacement. Further, calculation of the equipotent ED50's of each local anaesthetic allied to objective measurement of quadriceps motor block using an electromyogram (EMG) will allow us to determine the sensory - motor split of each local anaesthetic.
Number of patients in mobile palliative care units have pain of both nociceptive and neuropathic origin. In certain cases, procedures of locoregional analgesia can be helpful. The Purpose of this study is to evaluate the impact of techniques of locoregional analgesia in a palliative population
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the analgetic and other effects effect of ketamine are partly mediated through opioid receptors
The aim of this study is to evaluate quality of patient-controlled peroral analgesia after cesarian section using the combination of tramadol and acetaminophen. Research hypothesis is that the combination reduces pain at leg rising more than tramadol alone.
Superficial injection of Botulinum toxin has been advocated for cosmetic purposes but has also been reported to be helpful for some pain conditions. The investigators have observed prolonged profound analgesia following subcutaneous superficial injection of Botulinum Toxin Type A (BTA) in patients with certain types of neuropathic pain. the investigators propose to study if addition of BTA extends pain relief compared to placebo when injected subcutaneously into areas of cutaneous allodynia (the property that a normally non-noxious stimulus is perceived as painful).
