NCT ID: NCT02851394 Completed - Clinical trials for Post-operative Analgesia

Advantage of Tramadol in Local Analgesia Post-Sternotomy

ATLAS
Start date: October 2015
Phase: Phase 4
Study type: Interventional

Sternotomy, the reference approach for heart surgery, may induce profound and intense post-operative pain. One method of analgesia used is patient-controlled intravenous morphine. The analgesic efficacy of continuous wound infiltration at the sternum following heart surgery has been demonstrated. The analgesic catheter placed near the sternotomy wound reduces the consumption of morphine. The aim of this study is to determine whether a bolus of tramadol associated with the continuous administration of levobupivacaine via the wound catheter could potentiate the local anaesthetic effects, thus leading to a decreased consumption of postoperative intravenous morphine, and a decrease in morphine-related side effects.

NCT ID: NCT02811991 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Post-operative Analgesia

A PhaseⅡ/ Ⅲ Seamless Study to Evaluate Efficacy and Safety of Paracetamol Injection as Adjuvant to Morphine-based Postoperative Analgesia

Start date: June 2016
Phase: Phase 2/Phase 3
Study type: Interventional

Paracetamol,a classical analgesic agent,constitutes an essential component of multi-modal analgesia. This medication is generally safe, well tolerated and effective within recommended daily dose.The purpose of the study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of Paracetamol Injection as adjuvant to morphine-based post-operative analgesia, as well as to explore the reasonable dosage of paracetamol among Chinese population under above-mentioned circumstance.

NCT ID: NCT02782767 Completed - Clinical trials for Post-operative Analgesia

Comparison of Continuous Wound Catheter Infusion Versus Continuous Epidural Infusion in Abdominal Surgery

Start date: May 2016
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Comparison of efficacy in management of pain in abdominal surgery between epidural versus wound infusion catheter {catheter placed within the incision site}

NCT ID: NCT02146638 Completed - Clinical trials for Post Operative Analgesia

Post Operative Pain Control: Morphine vs Fentanyl

Start date: April 2012
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Aim of this study is to compare benefits and disadvantages in using continuous infusion of morphine or fentanyl for post operative analgesia.

NCT ID: NCT01882530 Terminated - Clinical trials for Post Operative Analgesia

Non-opioid Analgesic Combination With Morphine for Postoperative Analgesia.

OCTOPUS
Start date: July 23, 2013
Phase: Phase 4
Study type: Interventional

The combination of different analgesic drugs and/or analgesia techniques is part of the standard management of postoperative analgesia. The analysis of the literature reveals a lack of comparison of the associations of non-opioid analgesic (NOA) with morphine for postoperative analgesia. The objectives of this study are : - comparing the morphine sparing effect of different combination of 3 NOA (paracetamol, nefopam, ketoprofen) for postoperative analgesia. - determining whether the morphine-sparing effect is associated with or without a reduction in the incidence of morphine side effects. - evaluating the effects of NOA on postoperative hyperalgesia.

NCT ID: NCT01625780 Terminated - Local Anesthesia Clinical Trials

Comparing Ilioinguinal Single-shot and Three-layer Blocks

Start date: April 2012
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Ilio-inguinal nerve blocks have a long history of efficacy in treatment of post-operative pain following inguinal surgery. Several anatomic studies have shown that the nerves supplying the inguinal area have a certain degree of variability with respect to their location between the internal and external oblique layers of the anterior abdominal wall. Furthermore, the standard single-shot approach to ilio-inguinal nerve blocks has a significant incidence of unintended femoral nerve block, which can impair patients' ability to walk after surgery. The investigators are proposing a new approach to the ilio-inguinal nerve block, which divides the total dose of local anesthetic into 3 equal parts, injecting each 1/3 into different layers of the anterior abdominal wall and sub-cutaneously. The investigators intend to show that this new technique, the Tsui approach, provides equal analgesia to the standard single-shot ultrasound-guided ilio-inguinal nerve block, while being faster to perform and having a lower incidence of unintended femoral nerve blockade. Patients under age 10 who are scheduled for elective inguinal surgery (hydrocele repair, orchidopexy, and inguinal hernia repair), who have already consented to an ilio-inguinal nerve block that is commonly placed for this type of procedure, will be approached to participate in this study. No increased risk is anticipated for these patients, as both ultrasound-guided and blind techniques are equally well-accepted in the literature for this type of block, and in addition there are few vascular or neural structures in this anatomical area (just medial and inferior to the anterior superior iliac spine) that may be damaged. Follow-up will be limited to an assessment of pain scores in the PACU post-operatively and any unintended femoral nerve blockade in post-PACU. This will not delay their hospital discharge as these are same-day surgery patients.

NCT ID: NCT01568476 Completed - Regional Anesthesia Clinical Trials

Does Interneural Local Anesthetic Spread at the Site of Sciatic Nerve Bifurcation Shorten Block Onset Time?

Start date: July 2011
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Following foot and ankle surgery, ultrasound-guided sciatic nerve block (SNB) at the popliteal fossa decreases post-operative pain and opioid consumption. At the popliteal fossa, the sciatic nerve bifurcates to form the Common Peroneal Nerve (CPN) and Tibial Nerve (TN). Studies have shown that when both branches are blocked separately distal to the bifurcation site, block onset time is reduced by 30%. Through clinical observation, the investigators found that onset time is further shortened when ultrasound-guided SNB is performed at the site of bifurcation. This is because the local anesthetic spreads interneurally. The purpose of this study is to compare the block onset time of an ultrasound-guided sciatic nerve block at the site of nerve bifurcation with the blockade of each terminal nerve separately (TN and CPN) distal to sciatic nerve bifurcation.

NCT ID: NCT01568463 Completed - Regional Anesthesia Clinical Trials

Distance for Interscalene Block

Start date: February 2012
Phase: N/A
Study type: Observational

Patients experience significant postoperative pain following shoulder surgery, Single shot interscalene block is used in ambulatory shoulder surgery for its advantages that include significant reduction in acute pain and analgesic requirements, prolonged time to first analgesic request, decreased incidence of nausea, as well as earlier hospital discharge.The process of nerve block requires several needle passes, with each of them being at risk of causing nerve injury either by direct trauma or intraneural injection even with the use of the ultrasound. These facts raised concerns and several authors stated that maybe the anesthesiologists should be more careful, keep a safe distance from the nerve, and inject the local anesthetics into fascial planes containing the nerve and not attempt to place the needle in close proximity to the nerve. This study is designed to determine the maximal effective distance away from the nerve for the injection to be effective.

NCT ID: NCT01415193 Completed - Clinical trials for Post Operative Analgesia

Tibial Nerve Versus Sciatic Nerve Block

Start date: March 2009
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The purpose of this study is to analyse the ability to selectively block the posterior tibial nerve sparing the function of the common peritoneal nerve. To assess the efficacy of blocking the posterior tibial nerve will give the same post-operative pain relief after total knee surgery compared to a sciatic nerve block.
