Objective: To compare the anesthetic techniques using propofol and fentanyl versus midazolam and remifentanil associated with a paracervical block with lidocaine in performing ultrasound-guided transvaginal oocyte aspiration. Methods: A randomized double-blind clinical trial (#RBR-8kqqxh) performed in 61 women submitted to assisted reproductive treatment. The patients were divided into two groups: anesthetic induction with 1mcg/kg of fentanyl associated with 1.5mg/kg of propofol (FP Group, n=32), in comparison with anesthetic induction using 0...

STUDY DESIGN: A prospective, randomized study wias performed to compare two anesthetic methods. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effect of epidural analgesia on postoperative pain, endocrine- metabolic and inflammatory stress response and cellular inmmune responses during major corrective spine surgetry. METHODS: The study included 350 patients aged 15 to 65 who were randomly allocated to two equal groups. Group I (n=205) had continuous epidural analgesia (E4) and sevoflurane anesthesia during surgety and continuous epidural analgesia with ropivacaine and fentanil after surgery; Group 2 (n= 145) had general anesthesia with sevoflurane and fentanil and systemic administration of opioids after surgery...

A 42-year-old woman been suffering from multiple sclerosis for 2 years received an emergency laparotomy because of acute pancreatitis. Anesthesia was induced with propofol and fentanil and maintained with nitrous oxide and sevoflurane. Rocuronium was used for tracheal intubation and muscle relaxation. Train of four ratio was monitored for tracing muscle relaxation. Three days later the patient was operated again due to abdominal cavity infection and followed up with "open abdomen strategy" receiving general anesthesia with 3 days intervals...

PURPOSE: The effects of i.v. remifentanil in combination with an inhaled anesthetic to facilitate tracheal extubation of deeply anesthetized adults after otologic surgery are investigated. METHODS: Fifty patients undergoing middleear surgery were recruited for the study. All patients were administered deep anesthesia (i.v. fentanil, propofol, and mivacurium) and intubated, with subsequent administration of inhaled sevoflurane for anesthesia maintenance. Prior to endotracheal tube removal, the patients received i...

The aim of this study is the analysis of the beneficial impact of using opioid receptor antagonist associated to opioid analgesic on the quality of life in patients suffering from chronic non-cancer pain. We recruited 60 patients suffering from osteo-articular diseases who were randomized into two groups of treatment. The group A was treated with the association of opioid receptor antagonist and opioid agonist, represented by Oxycodone. The group B was treated with the opioid analgesics Oxycodone, transdermal Fentanil, and Hidromorphone, without the opioid antagonist...

BACKGROUND: In recent years, laser systems with higher wavelengths, associated with new optical fibers, have shown excellent short-term results in treating saphenous veins and reducing the side effects and, in particular, the postoperative pain. However, if the patients are not anesthetized, they may feel pain even when using low energy with the high-wavelength laser; the only tumescent local anesthesia often does not guarantee a complete pain control during endovenous laser ablation (EVLA)...

Introduction. It is a consensus that the postoperative cognitive function is impaired in elderly patients after general anaesthesia, and such category patient takes more time to recover. Xenon is a noble gas with anesthetic properties mediated by antagonism of N-methyl-D-aspartate receptors. With a minimum alveolar concentration of 0.63, xenon is intended for maintaining hypnosis with 30% oxygen. The fast recovery after xenon anaesthesia was hypothesized to be advantageous in this scenario. Case Presentation...

The study reports the dynamic of ICP, CPP and systemic hemodynamic rates during midazolam induction of anesthesia in patients with traumatic brain compression. Patients who need urgent surgery to eliminate brain compression of various degrees generally have intracranial hypertension. Midazolam administration decreases ICP by 22% from baseline under condition of stable hemodynamic and CPP. Depolarizing neuromuscular blocking agents' administration, mechanical ventilation and tracheal intubation lead to ICP elevation and CPP decreasing...

The clinical presentation of a subarachnoid block (SAB) is dependent upon the intrathecal spread of local anesthetic (LA). Intrathecal distribution depends on the chemical and physical characteristics of LA, puncture site, technique used, patient anatomical characteristics and hydrodynamic properties of cerebrospinal fluid. We tried to determine whether a combined glucose/LA solution can render a clinically significant difference in sensory block distribution and motor block intensity.This was a controlled, randomized and double blinded study...

THE PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: Evaluation of the effectiveness and safety of analgesics use before planned tracheal intubation in newborns. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study was carried out in 3 groups of full-term newborns: a "control" group(n=19, intravenous atracurium and midazolam before intubation), a "fentanyl" group (n=22, intravenous fentanyl 3mkg/kg together with muscle relaxant and benzodiazepines), a "sevoflurane" group (n=15, intubation under sevoflurane inhalation)...

OBJECTIVE: To observe the effects of short-term exposure to opioid analgesics on human sperm motility. METHODS: Twenty normal semen samples were collected, each divided into 19 groups, one as the control and the others treated in vitro with six opioid analgesics at three different concentrations, respectively, and sperm motility was assessed by computer-assisted sperm analysis at 15 min, 2 h and 4 h. RESULTS: Compared with the control group, fentanyl, alfentanil and sufentanil at 1 x 10(-5), 2 x 10(-3) and 0...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: It is a well-established fact today that the technique of choice for elective cesarean delivery is regional anesthesia. However, in patients with intracranial hypertension and central nervous system infection, this technique should be avoided. This paper aimed at reporting the anesthetic management of a pregnant patient with intracranial hypertension due to tuberculous meningitis submitted to elective cesarean delivery. CASE REPORT: Caucasian patient, 32 years old, 1...

BACKGROUND: Pain is the most common discomfort experienced by children undergoing major operations. It is most often not adequately treated because of inexperience and unfounded fears related to the use of opioid drugs. In adults, patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) is widely administered, while in children, its use with opioid drugs is still under evaluation for safety and efficacy. OBJECTIVES: The objective of the study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of an opioid drug (fentanil) administered by PCA associated with a sedative-adjuvant drug (midazolam) administered by continuous infusion in children having undergone major neurosurgical procedures...

The sublingual administration of opioid analgesics has been a mainstay in the pain management of homebound dying hospice patients who are no longer able to swallow. It is also a potentially useful route of administration in other situations in which the oral route is not available and other routes are impractical or inappropriate. Potential advantages of the sublingual route include rapid analgesic onset and avoidance of hepatic first-pass metabolism. Pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic studies have yielded widely disparate data on sublingual morphine...

A sensitive, semiautomated method for the analysis of several fentanils and fentanil metabolites in human urine is described. This method uses solid-phase extraction of urine samples followed by liquid chromatography-atmospheric pressure ionization-tandem mass spectrometry. Isotopically labeled internal standards were included for 6 of the 13 analytes in this study. Estimated detection limits ranged from 3 to 27 pg/mL, and good accuracy and long-term precision were observed in most cases. This method should be useful for the rapid and sensitive screening of human urine samples for a number of fentanils and their metabolites as indicators of exposure...
