Drugs that block nerve conduction when applied locally to nerve tissue in appropriate concentrations. They act on any part of the nervous system and on every type of nerve fiber. In contact with a nerve trunk, these anesthetics can cause both sensory and motor paralysis in the innervated area. Their action is completely reversible. (From Gilman AG, et. al., Goodman and Gilman's The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics, 8th ed) Nearly all local anesthetics act by reducing the tendency of voltage-dependent sodium channels to activate.
Gases or volatile liquids that vary in the rate at which they induce anesthesia; potency; the degree of circulation, respiratory, or neuromuscular depression they produce; and analgesic effects. Inhalation anesthetics have advantages over intravenous agents in that the depth of anesthesia can be changed rapidly by altering the inhaled concentration. Because of their rapid elimination, any postoperative respiratory depression is of relatively short duration. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p173)
Ultrashort-acting anesthetics that are used for induction. Loss of consciousness is rapid and induction is pleasant, but there is no muscle relaxation and reflexes frequently are not reduced adequately. Repeated administration results in accumulation and prolongs the recovery time. Since these agents have little if any analgesic activity, they are seldom used alone except in brief minor procedures. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p174)
Agents that are administered in association with anesthetics to increase effectiveness, improve delivery, or decrease required dosage.

Interruption of NEURAL CONDUCTION in peripheral nerves or nerve trunks by the injection of a local anesthetic agent (e.g., LIDOCAINE; PHENOL; BOTULINUM TOXINS) to manage or treat pain.
Agents that induce various degrees of analgesia; depression of consciousness, circulation, and respiration; relaxation of skeletal muscle; reduction of reflex activity; and amnesia. There are two types of general anesthetics, inhalation and intravenous. With either type, the arterial concentration of drug required to induce anesthesia varies with the condition of the patient, the desired depth of anesthesia, and the concomitant use of other drugs.

Bilateral neck exploration under hypnosedation: a new standard of care in primary hyperparathyroidism? (1/770)

OBJECTIVE: The authors review their experience with initial bilateral neck exploration under local anesthesia and hypnosedation for primary hyperparathyroidism. Efficacy, safety, and cost effectiveness of this new approach are examined. BACKGROUND: Standard bilateral parathyroid exploration under general anesthesia is associated with significant risk, especially in an elderly population. Image-guided unilateral approaches, although theoretically less invasive, expose patients to the potential risk of missing multiple adenomas or asymmetric hyperplasia. Initial bilateral neck exploration under hypnosedation may maximize the strengths of both approaches while minimizing their weaknesses. METHODS: In a consecutive series of 121 initial cervicotomies for primary hyperparathyroidism performed between 1995 and 1997, 31 patients were selected on the basis of their own request to undergo a conventional bilateral neck exploration under local anesthesia and hypnosedation. Neither preoperative testing of hypnotic susceptibility nor expensive localization studies were done. A hypnotic state (immobility, subjective well-being, and increased pain thresholds) was induced within 10 minutes; restoration of a fully conscious state was obtained within several seconds. Patient comfort and quiet surgical conditions were ensured by local anesthesia of the collar incision and minimal intravenous sedation titrated throughout surgery. Both peri- and postoperative records were examined to assess the safety and efficacy of this new approach. RESULTS: No conversion to general anesthesia was needed. No complications were observed. All the patients were cured with a mean follow-up of 18 +/- 12 months. Mean operating time was <1 hour. Four glands were identified in 84% of cases, three glands in 9.7%. Adenomas were found in 26 cases; among these, 6 were ectopic. Hyperplasia, requiring subtotal parathyroidectomy and transcervical thymectomy, was found in five cases (16.1%), all of which had gone undetected by localization studies when requested by the referring physicians. Concomitant thyroid lobectomy was performed in four cases. Patient comfort and recovery and surgical conditions were evaluated on visual analog scales as excellent. Postoperative analgesic consumption was minimal. Mean length of hospital stay was 1.5 +/- 0.5 days. CONCLUSIONS: Initial bilateral neck exploration for primary hyperparathyroidism can be performed safely, efficiently, and cost-effectively under hypnosedation, which may therefore be proposed as a new standard of care.  (+info)

Benzodiazepine premedication: can it improve outcome in patients undergoing breast biopsy procedures? (2/770)

BACKGROUND: Women awaiting needle-guided breast biopsy procedures may experience high anxiety levels. A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study was designed to evaluate the ability of midazolam and diazepam (in a lipid emulsion [Dizac]) to improve patient comfort during needle localization and breast biopsy procedures. METHODS: Ninety women received two consecutive doses of a study medication, one before the mammographic needle localization and a second before entering the operating room. Patients were assigned randomly to receive saline, 2.0 ml intravenously, at the two time points; midazolam, 1.0 mg intravenously and 2.0 mg intravenously; or diazepam emulsion, 2.0 mg intravenously and 5.0 mg intravenously, respectively. Patients assessed their anxiety levels before the needle localization, before entering the operating room, and on arrival in the operating room. Patients completed a questionnaire evaluating their perioperative experience at the time of discharge. RESULTS: Patient satisfaction during needle localization was significantly improved in both benzodiazepine treatment groups (vs. saline). The incidence of moderate-to-severe discomfort during needle localization was lower in the midazolam (20%) and diazepam emulsion (6%) groups compared with the saline group (70%) (P<0.05). The preoperative visual analogue scale anxiety scores were similar in all three groups. In the operating room, however, anxiety scores were 55% and 68% lower after midazolam (21+/-19) and diazepam emulsion (15+/-14) compared with saline (46+/-28). Finally, there was no difference in the time to achieve home-readiness or actual discharge time among the three groups. CONCLUSIONS: Premedication with midazolam or diazepam emulsion improved patients' comfort during needle localization procedures and significantly reduced intraoperative anxiety levels before breast biopsy procedures without prolonging discharge times. Use of diazepam emulsion may be an effective alternative to midazolam in this population.  (+info)

Endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair with percutaneous transfemoral prostheses deployment under local anaesthesia. Initial experience with a new, simple-to-use tubular and bifurcated device in the first 27 cases. (3/770)

BACKGROUND: Modification of endografts are required to simplify and improve the safety of the endovascular management of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA). OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of a new custom-made, tubular and bifurcated device. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The graft consisted of a continuous, self-expanding, stainless steel, Z-stent structure, covered with a thin wall PTFE tube. Bifurcated grafts were constructed in vivo from three PTFE tubes with a continuous Z-stent structure. Twenty-seven high risk patients with a mean age of 74 (62-86) years and AAA, mean diameter 5.9 cm, were treated in the last 26 months. Tube grafts were deployed in 13 aortic and one iliac cases, bifurcated grafts in nine cases and aorto-uni-iliac grafts with femorofemoral bypass in four cases. Grafts were deployed percutaneously under local anaesthesia. Patients were followed with contrast CT periodically. RESULTS: All grafts were deployed. There were no open conversions or other major complications. There were nine proximal and one distal postoperative endoleak. Four sealed spontaneously, three were treated successfully with endovascular techniques and three are under surveillance. In the 7 (2-23) months follow-up, one patient died due to heart failure 3 months post-procedure. CONCLUSIONS: Local anaesthesia and percutaneous graft introduction simplify and improve the efficacy of the procedure. Continuous aortic graft support provides stability and reduces the risk of migration. PTFE is a flexible, low-profile material for use in endovascular stent-grafts. The bifurcation concept used offers a simple technique for bifurcated grafts.  (+info)

Peribulbar anaesthesia during keratoplasty: a prospective study of 100 cases. (5/770)

AIMS: A prospective study was carried out in order to evaluate the efficacy and safety of peribulbar anaesthesia during keratoplasty and to describe surgical conditions. METHODS: Of 137 consecutive keratoplasties, 100 (73%) were performed under peribulbar anaesthesia. Patients received a mean volume of 16.5 (SD 4) ml (range 9-22 ml) of a mixture of etidocaine, bupivacaine, and hyaluronidase. Ocular compression duration was at least 20 minutes and intraocular pressure (IOP) was measured with a Tonopen after injection, compression, and before trephination. Degree of akinesia, pain scoring, complications, and surgical conditions were studied. RESULTS: Before trephination, IOP was 5.73 mm Hg below the preinjection value and was never above 21 mm Hg. Akinesia was complete in 80% of cases and 94% of patients found that surgery was painless. Two patients (2%) were very agitated during surgery. The last patient presented with an acute intraoperative suprachoroidal haemorrhage that did not result in a true expulsive haemorrhage despite an "open sky" situation. Surgical conditions were judged to be optimal by the patients in 92% of cases and by the surgeon in 98% of cases. CONCLUSION: These results demonstrate that peribulbar anaesthesia offers excellent anaesthesia and akinesia during keratoplasty and may be recommended for this type of surgery.  (+info)

Topical anaesthesia of intact skin: liposome-encapsulated tetracaine vs EMLA. (6/770)

In this randomized, double-blind study, we have compared the ability of 5% liposome-encapsulated tetracaine (amethocaine) (LET) vs 5% eutectic mixture of local anaesthetics (EMLA) to produce local anaesthesia of intact skin in 40 healthy volunteers. Volunteers had both preparations applied to their forearms under an occlusive dressing for 1 h. Superficial anaesthesia was measured by a total of nine 1-mm pinpricks on each arm. Deeper anaesthesia was assessed by single insertion of a sterile 22-gauge needle to a depth of 3 mm and pain was reported on a visual analogue scale (VAS). If the volunteer perceived greater than four of the 1-mm pinpricks, the 3-mm insertion was not performed. Results showed that the number of pinpricks perceived was significantly less (P < 0.01) for LET (median 1.0; range 0-9) vs EMLA (1.5; 0-9). In volunteers who had deeper anaesthesia assessed, there was no significant difference (P = 0.065) in VAS scores for LET (mean 1.5 (SD 1.4); n = 34) vs EMLA (2.4 (2.1); n = 28). Overall anaesthetic effect, as ranked by all of the subjects, was significantly better for LET compared with EMLA (P = 0.024). We have demonstrated that when applied in equal volumes, 5% LET produced better superficial local anaesthesia than EMLA.  (+info)

Inhibition of inspiratory motor output by high-frequency low-pressure oscillations in the upper airway of sleeping dogs. (7/770)

1. We utilized a chronically tracheostomized, unanaesthetized dog model to study the reflex effects on inspiratory motor output of low-amplitude, high-frequency pressure oscillations (HFPOs) applied to the isolated upper airway (UA) during stable non-rapid eye movement (NREM) sleep. 2. HFPOs (30 Hz and +/-2 to +/-4 cmH2O) were applied via a piston pump during eupnoea, inspiratory resistive loading and tracheal occlusion. 3. When applied to the patent UA during expiration, and especially during late expiration, HFPOs prolonged expiratory time (TE) and tonically activated the genioglossus muscle EMG. When applied to the patent UA during inspiration, HFPOs caused tonic activation of the genioglossus muscle EMG and inhibition of inspiratory motor output by either: (a) a shortening of inspiratory time (TI), as inspiration was terminated coincident with the onset of HFPOs; or (b) a prolonged TI accompanied by a decreased rate of rise of diaphragm EMG and rate of fall of tracheal pressure. These effects of HFPOs were observed during eupnoea and inspiratory resistive loading, but were maximal during tracheal occlusion where the additional inhibitory effects of lung inflation reflexes were minimized. 4. During eupnoea, topical anaesthesia of the UA abolished the HFPO-induced prolongation of TE, suggesting that the response was mediated primarily by mechanoreceptors close to the mucosal surface; whereas the TE-prolonging effects of a sustained square wave of negative pressure (range, -4.0 to -14.9 cmH2O) sufficient to close the airway were preserved following anaesthesia. 5. These results demonstrate that high-frequency, low-amplitude oscillatory pressure waves in the UA, similar to those found in snoring, produce reflex inhibition of inspiratory motor output. This reflex may help maintain UA patency by decreasing the collapsing pressure generated by the inspiratory pump muscles and transmitted to the UA.  (+info)

Feasibility of endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms with local anesthesia with intravenous sedation. (8/770)

PURPOSE: Local anesthesia has been shown to reduce cardiopulmonary mortality and morbidity rates in patients who undergo selected peripheral vascular procedures. The efforts to treat abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) with endovascular techniques have largely been driven by the desire to reduce the mortality and morbidity rates as compared with those associated with open aneurysm repair. Early results have indicated a modest degree of success in this goal. The purpose of this study was to investigate the feasibility of endovascular repair of AAAs with local anesthesia. METHODS: During a 14-month period, 47 patients underwent endovascular repair of infrarenal AAAs with local anesthesia that was supplemented with intravenous sedation. Anesthetic monitoring was selective on the basis of comorbidities. The patient ages ranged from 48 to 93 years (average age, 74.4 +/- 9.8 years). Of the 47 patients, 55% had significant coronary artery disease, 30% had significant chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and 13% had diabetes. The average anesthesia grade was 3.1, with 30% of the patients having an average anesthesia grade of 4. The mean aortic aneurysm diameter was 5.77 cm (range, 4.5 to 12.0 cm). All the implanted grafts were bifurcated in design. RESULTS: Endovascular repair of the infrarenal AAA was successful for all 47 patients. One patient required the conversion to general anesthesia to facilitate the repair of an injured external iliac artery via a retroperitoneal approach. The operative mortality rate was 0. No patient had a myocardial infarction or had other cardiopulmonary complications develop in the perioperative period. The average operative time was 170 minutes, and the average blood loss was 623 mL (range, 100 to 2500 mL). The fluid requirements averaged 2491 mL. Of the 47 patients, 46 (98%) tolerated oral intake and were ambulatory within 24 hours of graft implantation. The patients were discharged from the hospital an average of 2.13 days after the procedure, with 87% of the patients discharged less than 48 hours after the graft implantation. Furthermore, at least 30% of the patients could have been discharged on the first postoperative day except for study protocol requirements for computed tomographic scanning at 48 hours. CONCLUSION: This is the first reported series that describes the use of local anesthesia for the endovascular repair of infrarenal AAAs. Our preliminary results indicate that the endovascular treatment of AAAs with local anesthesia is feasible and can be performed safely in a patient population with significant comorbidities. The significant potential advantages include decreased cardiopulmonary morbidity rates, shorter hospital stays, and lower hospital costs. A definitive evaluation of the benefits of local anesthesia will necessitate a direct comparison with other anesthetic techniques.  (+info)

Since the introduction of Tumescent Local Anesthesia by Dermatologist and Pharmacologist J.A. Klein, this method of subcutaneous infiltration of large volumes of diluted anesthetic has been more rapid
The purpose of this systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) was to evaluate the effect of combined femoral and sciatic nerve block (SNB) versus femoral and local infiltration anesthesia (LIA) after total knee arthroplasty (TKA). The electronic databases PubMed, Embase, Cochrane Library, and Web of Science were searched from their inception to 15 June 2016. Articles comparing combined femoral and SNB versus femoral and LIA for pain control were eligible for this meta-analysis. This systematic review and meta-analysis was performed according to the PRISMA statement criteria. The primary endpoint was the visual analogue scale (VAS) score with rest at 12, 24, and 48 h, which represents the pain control after TKA. Data regarding active knee flexion, length of hospital stay, anesthesia time, and morphine use at 24 and 48 h were also compiled. The complications of postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) and fall were also noted to assess the safety of morphine-sparing

Tumescent lidocaine anesthesia (TLA) was developed 30 years ago to allow successful liposuction procedures totally using local anesthesia. In decades since, Jeffrey A. Klein, MD, has expanded his knowledge of TLA so that it could potentially be used for other surgical procedures and to deliver new treatments for painful conditions.. The more experience my colleagues and I got doing liposuction, the more we became aware that in tumescent liposuction there were virtually no surgical site infections or blood clots after surgery, Dr. Klein said. That is one of the big advantages of tumescent anesthesia, and it could allow us to do many surgical procedures under local anesthesia that used to be done under general anesthesia.. Dr. Klein shared his experience with TLA Sunday when he presented the Eugene J. Van Scott Award for Innovative Therapy of the Skin and Phillip Frost Leadership Lecture, Tumescent Drug Delivery: Lidocaine and Beyond.. In an interview before his lecture, Dr. Klein, a ...

So many people, not just doctors, think local anesthesia is so safe as to be without consequences. Well there is a reason why injectable lidocaine is not sold over the counter. It can have fatal results in the wrong hands. During anesthesiology residency, we are taught the consequences of intravascular injection of local anesthesia, the maximum dose of local that can be given to a patient, the pharmacodynamics of local anesthesia, the mechanism of action of local anesthesia on nerve impulses and on and on. How many surgeons, internists, or FPs have a complete understanding of the drug? Like any pharmaceutical given to a patient, there are always potential complications. But without a full comprehension of the qualities of locals, the risks for a fatal error are that much greater. So let me repeat this one more time people. Without proper training and monitoring, ANESTHESIA IS NOT EASY. In these unfortunate patients cases, it was also deadly ...
Local anesthesia is any technique to induce the absence of sensation in a specific part of the body, generally for the aim of inducing local analgesia, that is, local insensitivity to pain, although other local senses may be affected as well. It allows patients to undergo surgical and dental procedures with reduced pain and distress. In many situations, such as cesarean section, it is safer and therefore superior to general anesthesia. It is also used for relief of non-surgical pain and to enable diagnosis of the cause of some chronic pain conditions. Anesthetists sometimes combine both general and local anesthesia techniques. The following terms are often used interchangeably: Local anesthesia, in a strict sense, is anesthesia of a small part of the body such as a tooth or an area of skin. Regional anesthesia is aimed at anesthetizing a larger part of the body such as a leg or arm. Conduction anesthesia encompasses a great variety of local and regional anesthetic techniques. A local anesthetic ...

Five (25%) had no perception of light. Seventeen (85%) developed a relative afferent pupil defect (RAPD). No patients saw the operating instruments. Seven (35%) had improved visual acuity immediately postoperatively. Patients should be warned that they may lose vision completely on being given a peribulbar anaesthetic; however their vision will improve, but not necessarily immediately, postoperatively. Examination for an RAPD is a good method of providing reassurance that the operating instruments will not be seen..

Conjunctival Mullerectomy is a well known procedure used to correct upper lid ptosis via a posterior approach. Patients who undergo this procedure are often given local anesthesia to alleviate intraoperative and postoperative pain. Local anesthesia can be given via frontal nerve block or subconjunctival injection combined with sedation in most cases. Both techniques are currently acceptable options for local anesthesia, however postoperative pain has not been systematically evaluated between these two techniques.. The investigators aim to compare intra-operative and postoperative pain with these two techniques in patients undergoing conjunctival Mullerectomy for ptosis repair. Patients will be randomized to receive local anesthesia via frontal nerve block or via subconjunctival injection. In addition, the investigators will measure the surgical outcomes of the ptosis surgery with standard measures. ...

Surgical site infection (SSI) and bacterial drug resistance remain major problems.1-3 Intravenous antibiotic delivery (IVAD) may not reliably achieve adequate subcutaneous antibiotic concentrations.4-ics, dissolved in saline, before incision reduce the risk of SSI.9-14 TAAD is a novel mode of drug delivery that delays systemic drug absorption and prolongs local subcutaneous drug effects.. This research was an exploratory phase 1 pharmacokinetic clinical trial comparing the subcutaneous and systemic bioavailability of antibiotics following TAAD or IVAD. After TAAD, subcutaneous interstitial fluid is designated tumescent interstitial fluid (TISF).. The principal aim of this research was to measure concentrations of cefazolin and metronidazole over time in subcutaneous tissue and serum following TAAD and in serum following intravenous (IV) delivery. We hypothesize that, at equal doses, TAAD provides uniformly greater subcutaneous antibiotic concentrations, area under the curve (AUC∞), maximum ...
The global Local Anesthesia Drugs Market is predicted to reach USD 6.45 billion by 2025 owing to the increasing number of surgeries across the world. Anesthesia is a medical procedure that reduces or prevents the pain during surgery or other painful medical processes. It encourages the loss of awareness or sensation to the patient, which in a way help the surgeons to carry the entire surgery. An anesthesia is a drug that prevents pain during a medical operation. The anesthesia type used for any surgery is determined by different factors like length and type of the surgery, patient health and preference of the surgeon doctor and patient. The local anesthesia drugs market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.7% in the years to come.. The three types of anesthesia drugs are local anesthesia, general anesthesia and regional anesthesia. Long anesthesia is injected in the tissue to numb the particular body location for minor operation. In general anesthesia, the patient is completely unconscious and ...
Abstract BACKGROUND: Although some patients with symptomatic spinal disease may benefit greatly from surgery, their multiple attendant comorbidities may make general anesthesia risky or contraindicated. However, there is scarce literature describing the efficacy and safety of local anesthesia to perform these operations. Here we report seven patients who successfully underwent spinal surgery utilizing local anesthesia to limit the risks and complications of general anesthesia. METHODS: Seven patients for whom general anesthesia was contraindicated were prospectively followed for a minimum of 3 months following spinal surgery performed under local anesthesia. Pain and functional improvement were assessed utilizing the Visual Analog Scores (VAS) and Oswestry Disability Index (ODI) scores. RESULTS: Five patients had interlaminar decompressions for stenosis alone, while two patients had laminectomies for debulking of tumors. The mean duration of surgery was 79.8 ± 16.6 min, the mean estimated blood loss

The popularity of these clinics has spread far and wide thanks to the success stories being reported by the media. As a result, the clinics are getting patients not just from Brazil, but from the neighboring countries as well, and even from the US. The Center for Advanced Liposuction claims that they can remove up to 90 percent of unwanted fat from just about any body part, and that too under local anesthesia. The centers are able to remove as much fat as possible under local anesthesia and this is quite an achievement. Even though local anesthesia is applied, a professional anesthesiologist is always present during the surgical intervention to remove the excess fat. A patient can thus gain from the benefits of traditional lipo, without the risks associated with being under anesthesia the recovery time is quick too ...

A lot of people dont like dental work because they believe it will be painful or uncomfortable. Theres an anatomical reason to back up that concern - the mouth with its dense network of nerves in the teeth and gums is one of the most sensitive parts of the human body.. But modern dentistry has helped solve much of the problem of pain with advances in local anesthesia. Using substances that temporarily block electrical impulses within the nerves of a selected area of oral tissues, theres a good chance youll feel little to no discomfort even during moderately invasive procedures.. Unfortunately, you might have heard some complaints from others about local anesthesia that might make you wary of it. Many of these complaints, however, arent fully based on all the facts. So, lets set the record straight about local anesthesia and what you can expect.. No need to be afraid of needles. Nobody enjoys the painful prick from an injection needle, and some people are highly fearful of them. But ...
Donald Lalonde J Am Acad Orthop Surg. Vol 21 Nº 8 August 2013. Traditionally, surgeons were taught that local anesthesia containing epinephrine should not be injected into fingers. This idea has since been refuted in many basic and clinical scientific studies, and today, injection of lidocaine plus epinephrine is widely used for digital and hand anesthesia in Canada. The key advantages of the wide-awake technique include the creation of a bloodless field without the use of an arm tourniquet, which in turn reduces the need for conscious sedation. The use of local anesthesia permits active motion intraoperatively, which is particularly helpful in tenolysis, flexor tendon repairs, and setting the tension on tendon transfers. Additional benefits of wide-awake anesthesia include efficiencies and cost savings in outpatient surgical case flow due to the absence of conscious sedation.. ...
Local anesthesia is the temporary loss of sensation including pain in one part of the body produced by a topically-applied or injected agent without depressing the level of consciousness. Prevention of pain during dental procedures can nurture the relationship of the patient and dentist, building trust, allaying fear and anxiety, and promoting a positive dental attitude. The technique of local anesthetic administration is an important consideration in the behavior guidance of a pediatric patient. Age-appropriate nonthreatening terminology, distraction, topical anesthetics, proper injection technique, and nitrous oxide/oxygen analgesia/anxiolysis can help the patient have a positive experience during administration of local anesthesia. ...
Controlling discomfort during dental work is one of our top priorities. Advances in anesthesia over the last century have made that objective easier to attain, especially for routine procedures.. The term anesthesia means without feeling or pain. It refers to the use of substances to prevent a patients nervous system from sensing pain. There are two basic types: general, through intravenous injection (IV) or gas inhalation that places a patient in an unconscious state; and local, which only affects the part of the body involved in the procedure while the patient remains conscious.. The latter type has become very important in dentistry, especially for mild to moderate procedures. Because teeth and gum tissues are rich in nerves, patients can have a heightened level of sensitivity that can increase anxiety and discomfort during dental work. Local anesthesia reduces that discomfort and relaxes both patient and dental provider.. We typically administer local anesthesia in two ways: by applying ...

Tumescent anesthesia is a technique for delivery of local anesthesia. It is designed to maximize safety by using pharmacokinetic principles to achieve extensive regional anesthesia of skin and subcutaneous tissue with a high dose but low risk of reaching toxic levels of drug in the blood. The subcutaneous infiltration of a large volume of very dilute lidocaine and epinephrine causes the targeted tissue to become swollen and firm, or tumescent, and permits procedures to be performed on patients without subjecting them to the inherent risks of local anesthesia and blood loss.

Unless the patient has a cardiovascular contraindication to receiving glyocopyrrolate, we suggest to give 0.2- 0.4 mg intravenously to reduce secretions in the oro- and hypopharynx. For best effect do this before administering topical local anesthetics.. Many practitioners like to supplement their airway anesthesia technique with intravenous sedation, using hypnotic drugs such as Dexmedetomidine, Propofol and Benzodiazepines or centrally-acting drugs which suppress laryngeal reflexes such as Remifentanil or Alfentanil. While there is nothing wrong with this in principle, please do not rely on sedatives to compensate for poor local anesthetic technique. In addition, in cases where you provide topical airway anesthesia for awake fiberoptic intubation, please consider carefully why you chose this approach in the first place. Most likely you expect a difficult airway and want to maintain spontaneous respiration until intubation is achieved. Think for a minute about what would happen if you got your ...

Local anaesthetics. Local anaesthetics are drugs which act on nerves to stop or block transmission of information. We often use local anaesthetics to block sensory nerves. This means that the painful stimulus cannot pass up to the brain and the animal does not feel the pain. Local anaesthetics will also affect motor nerves which cause the muscles to move. It can therefore cause temporary inhibition of muscle movement. Some drugs last a number of hours so also provide effective pain relief for the first evening after surgery.. Benefits of local anaesthetic use. Using local anaesthetics have been shown to have a number of benefits when used in people including:. ...
Soft-tissue numbness after local anaesthesia is considerably longer than pulpal anaesthesia and the duration of the typical dental appointment. This often impacts on patients normal daily activities. The aim of this randomized, single-blind study was to evaluate the reversal of soft-tissue anaesthesia using phentolamine in asymptomatic endodontic patients.. Adults patients requiring endodontic therapy in a maxillary or mandibular asymptomatic tooth were randomised toeither phentolamine ( n=46) or sham treatment (39) at the end of the endodontic treatment appointment. Soft-tissue anaesthesia was monitored by patients every 15 minutes for 5 hours with postoperative injection site pain and tooth pain being reported using a Heft-Parker visual analog score every 30 minutes for the first 2 postoperative hours and every hour for 3 hours.. They found:-. ...

If your pet is having a minor surgical or diagnostic procedure performed, we sometimes use a local anesthetic to help control pain.

|p|Anesthesia is the use of medication to relieve or eliminate pain during a medical procedure. The medication, called an anesthetic, is usually given by a specialist known as an anesthesiologist, though it sometimes given by another health care provider. Anesthesia can be given for procedures in a doctors office, a hospital, a medical center or an ambulatory surgical center. |/p||p||b| Types of Anesthesia|/b||/p||p|There are several types of anesthesia, and the type a doctor decides to use will vary based on the nature and seriousness of the medical procedure. Local anesthesia is the least extensive kind of anesthesia, and it is used to numb just one part of the body, usually via an injection. For surgery on the foot or hand, for example, local anesthesia may be used. Regional anesthesia is similar but more extensive, and its used to numb an entire region of the body. An epidural given to a woman during childbirth is a type of regional anesthesia.|/p||p|The most extensive form of anesthesia is known

BACKGROUND We evaluated the anesthetic efficacy and the postoperative analgesic effects of 0.75% levobupivacaine versus 0.75% ropivacaine for peribulbar anesthesia in patients undergoing primary vitreoretinal surgery. METHODS We investigated 120 patients subjected to vitreoretinal surgery under peribulbar anesthesia. They were randomized into two equal groups according to the local anesthetic (LA) used, namely, 0.75% levobupivacaine or 0.75% ropivacaine, both with the addition of hyaluronidase. Nerve block was carried out by injection of 5-7 mL of the LA using single injection percutaneous peribulbar anesthesia with a short needle. RESULTS When compared with 0.75% ropivacaine, 0.75% levobupivacaine provided more successful akinesia at 10 min after block (P=0.026), fewer supplementary injections (P=0.026), and less volume (mL) was used (P=0.031). Also, levobupivacaine provided significantly longer motor block duration (342±27 min versus 206±40 min, P=0.001) and significantly longer sensory block

Q: Dr. Eppley, I am interested in getting liposuction for my belly area. I am 36 years old and had very successful breast reduction surgery seven years ago. While I was put to sleep for my breast reduction and had no problems, I am more anxious now considering it since I have two small children. Do you think it would be better to have regular liposuction under general anesthesia or Smartlipo under local anesthesia? I think I want to flatten my hips area as well. It is time to get ready for the summer!. A: You are under a classic misconception that Smartlipo is a liposuction procedure done only under local anesthesia. While it can be done in some smaller areas under local anesthesia, the reality is so can regular liposuction. The type of anesthesia has little to do with what type of liposuction can be performed. But it often controls how good a result one can get from any type of liposuction procedure. How thoroughly fat can be removed from multiple areas largely depends on a patients comfort to ...

In order to improve patient comfort, a variety of sedation techniques has been employed in the past. The object of this study was, firstly, to determine whether continuous intravenous sedation during surgery offered any advantages in patients premedicated with temazepam and metoclopramide, and, secondly, to compare midazolam to propofol for this purpose. Forty nine patients were randomly aliocated to receive no intravenous sedation (n=15), continuous propofol infusion (n=17), or continuous intravenous midazolam infusion (n=17) after peribulbar anaesthesia. Each technique provided cardiovascular and respiratory stability and aliowed early recovery with minimal ...

According to a pair of European studies, using hypnosis in combination with local anesthesia may speed healing, reduce the need for post-operative drugs, and reduce hospitalization time for certain surgeries that typically require a general anesthetic.. In a Belgian study of 78 breast cancer patients, 18 women experienced hypnosis and local anesthetic for partial mastectomy, sentinel node biopsy, or lymph node removal while the others had general anesthesia for the same procedures. In the other study involving 54 thyroid patients, 18 had the hypnosis/local anesthesia combination for removal of the thyroid gland while the others underwent general anesthetic.. In both studies, patients undergoing the combination hypnosis/local anesthesia option fared better in terms of recovery time, hospital stay, and opiate drug use. Additionally, researchers found that the potential effectiveness of hypnosis is not affected by either gender or age. Instead, they found that patient motivation, trust, and ...

To assess the effect of hyaluronidase on eye and eyelid movements when used as an adjunct in sub-Tenons anaesthesia. A total of 60 patients who had sub-Tenons anaesthesia prior to phacoemulsification surgery were divided into two equal groups in a double-masked randomised controlled fashion. Of these, Group A had 4 ml lignocaine 2%, while Group B had 4 ml lignocaine 2% with the addition of sodium hyaluronidase 75 IU/ml. Ocular motility, levator, and orbicularis oculi function were measured in all patients at 5 and 8 min. Levator function was scored from 0 (no function) to 3 (complete function) while orbicularis function was scored from 0 to 2. The score for ocular motility was the sum in four positions of gaze, each position scoring from 0 to 2. Results were compared using a nonparametric test. Group B achieved significantly better ocular and lid akinesia than Group A both at 5 and 8 min with P|0.01. The median scores for levator function at 5 and 8 min were 2 for Group A and 0 for Group B.

Inguinal hernia repair is one of the most frequently performed procedures in Switzerland (about 15000 cases per year) [1]. The most common complication postoperatively is development of chronic pain in up to 30% of patients irrespective of the operative technique [2-7]. Callesen et al. [3] found the persistence of pain at 1 and 4 weeks after surgery to be a predictive factor on the development of chronic pain. Courtney et al. [8] concluded that chronic pain persists in most patients who report pain up to 3 months after hernia repair. Surgical procedures like the ilioinguinal neurectomy recently described by Mui et al. [9] lead to a significant reduction of chronic pain but also to numbness and discomfort in the groin region. Whereas Ravichandran et al. [10] in contrast showed no significance of the elective division of the ilioinguinal nerve.. In addition to the problems caused by hernia surgery the objective evaluation of the postoperative pain is limited. The Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) is ...
We can easily take for granted the comfort we now experience when we undergo dental work. For much of human history that hasnt been the case.. Local anesthesia has been a major factor in the evolution of pain-free dentistry. The term refers to the numbing of nerve sensation in the tissues involved in a procedure. This type of anesthesia is usually applied in two ways: topical and injectable.. We apply topical anesthetic agents to the top layers of tissue using a cotton swab, adhesive patch or a spray. Topical agents are useful for increasing comfort during cleanings for patients with sensitive teeth or similar superficial procedures. Topical anesthesia is also used in conjunction with injections as a way to prevent feeling the minor prick of the needle. In essence, you shouldnt feel any pain or discomfort from beginning to end of your procedure.. Injectable anesthesia deadens pain at deeper levels of tissue. This makes it possible for us to perform more invasive procedures like tooth ...

Water jet assisted liposuction is another method of liposuction being used by cosmetic surgeons today. As in all types of liposuction, fatty deposits are removed from beneath the skin for a more contoured look. Liposuction is optimal for people who are in good physical shape and who arent interested in using liposuction as a weight loss measure.. Instead of injecting the body with tumescent fluid and removing the fat cells manually with a cannula, or using laser technology to melt and dislodge the fat, water jet assisted liposuction actually uses a slightly pressurized stream of saline to dislodge fat and simultaneously remove the cells. Instead of destroying fat cells, this type of liposuction loosens the fat cells to facilitate more gentle removal. Water Jet Assisted liposuction injects tumescent fluid (saline and medicines including a local anesthetic) into the body part being treated. Tumescent fluid is proven effective and several alternate liposuction technologies are now using the ...
OBJECTIVES Evaluation of pain during and after phacoemulsification with topical anesthesia in patients with senile cataract and investigation of factors related with pain. MATERIALS AND METHODS Ninety-two adult patients scheduled for routine clear corneal phacoemulsification with topical anesthesia who had no previous cataract surgery in their fellow eyes were included in the study. Verbal pain scale and visual analog scale were used to measure pain intensity. Demographic characteristics, concomitant systemic diseases, drug consumption, need of additional anesthesia during surgery, surgical complications, duration of surgery and surgeon comfort were also evaluated for each patient. RESULTS Seventy-two patients (78.3%) reported pain during surgery and 68 patients (73.9%) reported pain in the period after the surgery. When the intensity of pain during the surgery was evaluated, the percentage of patients reporting mild, moderate and intense pain was 35.9%, 25.0% and 17.4%, respectively. The average

The thought of heading to the doctor for a procedure that requires local anesthesia probably doesnt seem like that big of a deal. However, imagine if you were going to feel everything that was happening during the procedure. Well for some, this horrible nightmare is a reality. In very rare cases, some individuals have a resistance to local anesthesia, and no matter the amount received, they can still feel pain. In a report from the BBC, a woman named Lori Lemon, discusses how since she was young she has always had to go to the dentist and other doctors expecting to endure pain. Even after crying out during dental procedures, doctors never took Lori seriously. She describes a visit to the dentist as a young child when her condition first became apparent, They started working on me and I, being obedient, I just raised my hand and let em know, I can feel this, she says. Another injection still proved that she had a resistance to local anesthesia. Finally I just kind of screamed and was in ...

Urethral meatotomy is an office procedure often done under local anesthesia with or without penile block or under short general anesthesia. Whatever may be the method, the patient has to bear the pain of injection. To avoid painful injections, in the present study, topical anesthesia in the form of eutectic mixture of prilocaine and lidocaine anesthetics [EMLA/Prilox] has been used to perform such procedures and its effectiveness determined. A total of 48 consecutive patients with meatal stenosis who attended urology outdoor were enrolled in this study. After exclusion, in 32 patients, 3-4 g of Prilox cream was applied over the glans and occlusive covering was maintained for 45 min before the procedure. Meatotomy was done in a standard manner with hemostat application at the stenosed segment for 2-3 min followed by ventral incision at meatus. The patients pain perception was measured using visual analog score. Out of 32, only one patient that had inappropriate application of cream, had a ...
Liposuction is a surgical procedure designed to extract excess fat from specific areas of the body in order to provide a slimmer, more pleasing shape. Commonly treated areas of the body include the chin, cheeks neck, upper arms, abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, knees, calves and ankles. Liposuction is most effective on physically healthy men and women who are of normal body weight but have exercise-resistant areas of fat.. Liposuction may be performed with a variety of anesthesia, including an epidural, local anesthesia or general anesthesia. During a traditional liposuction procedure, small incisions are made in the skin and then a narrow tube known as a cannula is inserted through the incisions and manipulated to disrupt the fat cells before suctioning them out. The incisions are then closed. Traditional liposuction typically takes one to two hours to perform.. There are several newer techniques in liposuction, including the tumescent technique and ultrasound-assisted lipoplasty (UAL). With ...

PY - 1993/12/1. Y1 - 1993/12/1. N2 - The use of local anaesthesia has been advocated by most pediatric surgeons in order to cut down hospitalization costs as well as to avoid general anaesthesia. In 1992, 26 patients aged 4 to 14 years (avg. 8 years) underwent small surgical procedures with local anesthesia, obtained by the application of EMLA cream 60 to 120 minutes prior to the procedure. EMLA cream is aneutectic mixture of lidocaine and prilocaine with a meeting point at a lesser temperature than the two compounds separately. In this way, concentration of anaesthetics increases up to 80% in the emulsion droplets. This preparation enables small operations to be performed under local anaesthesia even in small children who can be safely treated as outpatients. Disadvantages due to the long time ...

Press Release issued Dec 23, 2014: Anesthesia drugs are used during tests and surgical operations to induce sleep, which prevents pain and discomfort and enables a wide range of medical procedures to be performed. Local Anesthesia and General Anesthesia are the two commonly used types of anesthesia. Local anesthesia is a condition when sensation within a specific body part in inhibited, where as general anesthesia results in loss of consciousness and sensation.
For any type of surgical procedure, anesthesia is used to help keep patients calm and alleviate discomfort and pain. When deciding to use anesthesia, surgeons must look at the type of procedure being performed and how extensive this procedure is. This allows them to choose between two different types of anesthesia, depending on which is suited to the patient.. Local anesthesia is used on procedures that are simpler in nature and do not cover a wider area. This is administered to specific regions of the eyes in blepharoplasty using a needle and can be used in combination with sedatives. These extra sedatives can be given either orally or through an intravenous needle.. General anesthesia is used in procedures that are more complicated in nature, or when a patient is undergoing multiple cosmetic surgeries at once. This is given through IV and puts the patient to sleep for the duration of the surgery, wherewith local anesthesia the patient remains awake. How long the patient stays asleep depends on ...

Evidence suggests that local anaesthesia after total knee replacement (TKR) provides better knee function in the postoperative period with less post-operative complications like nausea and vomiting as compared to conventional ways of pain treatment (i.e.opioids). Good clinical results have been obtained with and without the use of indwelling catheters. The Bellovac ABT system; a technique to collect, filter and reinfuse blood and tissue fluid, is also often used in TKR. Bellovac ABT is used as an alternative to allogeneic blood transfusion. A combination of both techniques however, is not common yet. Before routinely combining local anaesthesia with the Bellovac technique we want to quantify the amount of local anaesthetic (if any) in the collected and retranfusable blood and tissue fluid. On the basis of these data the safety of combining local anaesthesia with the retransfusion of blood and tissue fluid will be assessed ...
Methods 54 patients undergoing vitrectomy were randomised into two groups.
