Success Rates Of Turning Breech Babies Increased By Anesthesia, Delivery Costs Reduced
Source: Pain / Anesthetics News From Medical News Today [2013.04.22]
When a baby is in the breech position at the end of pregnancy, obstetricians can sometimes turn the baby head-down to enable a safer vaginal birth. In the past, women were not given anesthesia during the turning procedure, which requires the physician to push on the woman's abdomen while monitoring the baby with ultrasound...

A comparison of the efficacy of 4% articaine with 1:100,000 epinephrine and 2%
lidocaine with 1:80,000 epinephrine in achieving pulpal anesthesia in maxillary
teeth with irreversible pulpitis. 
anesthesia in maxillary teeth with irreversible pulpitis... CONCLUSIONS: There was no significant difference in efficacy between 4% articaine
Comparative evaluation of local infiltration of articaine, articaine plus ketorolac, and dexamethasone on anesthetic efficacy of inferior alveolar nerve block with lidocaine in patients with irreversible pulpitis. [2011.04]
INTRODUCTION: The inferior alveolar nerve block (IANB) has a poor success rate in patients with irreversible pulpitis. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of ketorolac and dexamethasone infiltration along with standard IANB on the success rate... CONCLUSIONS: Articaine and ketorolac infiltration can increase the success rate of IANB in patients with irreversible pulpitis. None of the tested techniques gave 100% success rate.

The efficacy of infiltration anaesthesia for adult mandibular incisors: a randomised double-blind cross-over trial comparing articaine and lidocaine buccal and buccal plus lingual infiltrations. [2010.11]
AIM: To compare the efficacy of 2% lidocaine and 4% articaine both with 1:100,000 adrenaline in anaesthetising the pulps of mandibular incisors... CONCLUSIONS: 4% articaine was more effective than 2% lidocaine (both with 1:100,000 adrenaline) in anaesthetising the pulps of lower incisor teeth after buccal or buccal plus lingual infiltrations.
Anesthetic efficacy of supplemental buccal and lingual infiltrations of articaine and lidocaine after an inferior alveolar nerve block in patients with irreversible pulpitis. [2009.07]
INTRODUCTION: The success rate of inferior alveolar nerve block (IANB) decreases in patients with irreversible pulpitis. It was hypothesized that supplemental infiltration of lidocaine and articaine may improve the success rates... CONCLUSIONS: Although supplemental buccal and lingual infiltrations of 4% articaine or 2% lidocaine increased the success rate of the inferior alveolar nerve block in patients with irreversible pulpitis, none of the techniques provided acceptable success rates.
Articaine buccal infiltration enhances the effectiveness of lidocaine inferior alveolar nerve block. [2009.03]
CONCLUSIONS: The IANB injection supplemented with articaine buccal infiltration was more successful than IANB alone for pulpal anaesthesia in mandibular teeth. Articaine buccal infiltration or dummy buccal infiltration was more comfortable than IANB.
Clinical Trials Related to Dentipatch (Lidocaine Buccal)
Jet Injection of 1% Buffered Lidocaine Versus Topical ELA-Max for Anesthesia Prior to Intravenous (IV) Catheterization in Children [Completed]
This trial is a comparison of the anesthetic effectiveness of J-Tip needle-free jet injection
of 1% buffered lidocaine to the anesthetic effectiveness of topical 4% ELA-Max for peripheral
intravenous catheter (PIV) insertion. The researchers hypothesize that the jet injection of
lidocaine will provide superior anesthesia to the ELA-Max prior to PIV insertion.
Evaluation of Topical Liposomal Lidocaine and Oral Sucrose for Treatment of Pain in Newborns Undergoing Venipuncture [Recruiting]
The objective of this study is to determine the relative efficacy of sucrose, liposomal
lidocaine, and sucrose plus liposomal lidocaine, on reducing pain during venipuncture in
Intraoperative Lidocaine Infusion for Analgesia (ILIA) [Not yet recruiting]
Please state clearly the hypothesis to be tested, in lay terms.
Purpose: To evaluate the efficacy of intravenous lidocaine infusion administered during
general anesthesia in:
1. Reducing length of hospital stay following total abdominal hysterectomy;
2. Reducing postoperative analgesic requirement following total abdominal hysterectomy.
Hypothesis: The addition of an intraoperative lidocaine infusion to a balanced anesthetic
technique will result in up to 50% of patients being discharged after postoperative day 2
compared with the current 21%. Also, it will result in a 30% reduction in opiod consumption
during the first 48 hours following total abdominal hysterectomy.
Assumption: Patients in the intervention and control groups will be titrated to approximately
equal analgesia because they will self-administer enough pain-controlling medications to make
their postoperative pain experience the same.
1. Length of hospital stay;
2. Total opioid use at 48 hours postoperatively.
Secondary outcomes. The following data will be collected and analyzed:
1. Intraoperative data: BIS scores (to control depth of anesthesia); intraoperative serum
lidocaine levels; intraoperative opioid use;
2. Opioid use in the recovery room;
3. Patient Controlled Analgesia (PCA) morphine requirements postoperatively up to 48
4. Oral pain controlling medication use up to 48 hours postoperatively if IV PCA
discontinued before 48 hours;
5. Verbal Analogue Scale (VAS) pain scores in recovery room and during first 2 days
6. Incidence of side effects that can be attributed to local anesthetic toxicity;
7. Incidence of nausea and vomiting and anti-emetic use up to 48 hours postoperatively;
8. Time of first flatus and first bowel movement.
Perioperative Protective Effects of Lidocaine [Recruiting]
Evaluation of Topical Lidocaine Spray as Adjuvant to Upper Gastrointestinal Endoscopy in Children [Completed]
There is some controversy in the medical literature regarding the effectiveness of topical
lidocaine in children as an adjuvant drug to upper gastrointestinal endoscopy. In children,
deep sedation and general anesthesia are often used to sedate children submitting to this
procedure. Propofol is an anesthetic drug increasingly popular in this situation, but this
drug can only be used with an anesthesiologist in Brazil. Its main side effects include
hypotension, respiratory depression and local pain. Lidocaine is frequently used as
premedication, and the rationale is that lowering patient discomfort could lower the required
dose to achieve the endoscopy and reduce potential side effects. Nevertheless, some patients
perceive this medication as uncomfortable. This study aims to compare sedative drug doses
between patients who were given either placebo or topical lidocaine.
