Published Studies Related to Lidocaine Viscous (Lidocaine Oral Topical)
A double blind randomized controlled trial assessing the efficacy of topical lidocaine in extended flexible endoscopic nasal examinations. [2011.10.21]
Objective: To test the hypothesis that using lidocaine nasal spray will result in improved pain and comfort outcomes during an extended flexible endoscopic nasal examination.Patients undergoing such an examination would benefit from the application of lidocaine after masking the negative flavour using oral mouthwash.
A double blind, randomised placebo controlled trial of topical 2% viscous
lidocaine in improving oral intake in children with painful infectious mouth
BACKGROUND: Painful infectious mouth conditions are a common presentation to
emergency departments... DISCUSSION: This trial will define the role of 2% lidocaine in the treatment of
painful infectious mouth conditions.
Oral desipramine and topical lidocaine for vulvodynia: a randomized controlled trial. [2010.09]
OBJECTIVE: To estimate the efficacy of common treatments for vulvodynia: topical lidocaine monotherapy, oral desipramine monotherapy, and lidocaine-desipramine combined therapy... CONCLUSION: Oral desipramine and topical lidocaine, as monotherapy or in combination, failed to reduce vulvodynia pain more than placebo. Placebo or placebo-independent effects are behind the substantial pain improvement seen in all treatment allocations. CLINICAL TRIAL REGISTRATION: ClinicalTrials.gov, www.clinicaltrials.gov, NCT00276068. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: I.
Topical lidocaine reduces the risk of perioperative airway complications in children with upper respiratory tract infections. [2010.08]
PURPOSE: To determine the effect of topically applied lidocaine on perioperative airway complications when using a laryngeal mask airway device (LMAD) in children either with or without a history of recent or ongoing upper respiratory tract infection (URI)... CONCLUSION: Lubrication of the LMAD with lidocaine gel reduces the incidence of airway complications in children with an upper respiratory tract infection.
Reducing the flavour of oral lidocaine: randomized controlled trial assessing the efficacy of mint-flavoured mouthwash. [2010.02.01]
OBJECTIVE: To test the hypothesis that using an alcohol-based, mint-flavoured oral mouthwash prior to applying oral lidocaine spray will result in an improvement in the unpleasant taste of the lidocaine. DESIGN: A double-blind, randomized, controlled trial using a crossover design. SETTING: A tertiary care hospital... CONCLUSIONS: A brief rinse with a mint-flavoured, alcohol-based mouthwash prior to administration of topical lidocaine resulted in a significant improvement in the perceived flavour of topical lidocaine with a minimal reduction in subjective analgesia.
Clinical Trials Related to Lidocaine Viscous (Lidocaine Oral Topical)
J-Tip® Jet Injection of 1% Buffered Lidocaine or Saline Versus 4% Lidocaine Cream Before Venipuncture or IV Insertion [Not yet recruiting]
To measure and compare pain associated with venipuncture and peripheral intravenous catheter
insertion among pediatric emergency department patients randomized to treatment with one of
three different pain-reduction strategies: J-Tip® jet injection of 1% buffered lidocaine,
J-Tip® jet injection of sterile saline, or application of 4% lidocaine topical cream. The
investigators hypothesize that J-Tip® jet injection of 1% buffered lidocaine will provide
superior local anesthesia compared to saline or lidocaine cream.
Lidocaine and Ketamine in Abdominal Surgery [Recruiting]
This study is being done to determine if combined infusions of lidocaine and ketamine is
better than a lidocaine or ketamine infusion alone, or to placebo in improving recovery
after abdominal hysterectomy. Participants will be randomized into one of four groups.
Evaluations will be done through walking tests, pain and fatigue questionnaires and blood
Intrauterine Lidocaine Infusion for Essure Sterilization Procedures [Recruiting]
The purpose of this study is to assess the level of pain women experience with an Essure
procedure and the effect that lidocaine might have on that pain. We will also assess the
absorption of lidocaine in the uterus by measuring lidocaine levels in the blood.
Perioperative Lidocaine or Epidural Anesthesia on Outcomes in Complex Spine Surgery [Recruiting]
The primary goal is to assess whether Lidocaine/IVPCA is better in morphine requirements and
simultaneously not worse in pain control measured by VAS pain score compared to IVPCA alone.
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
