Clinical Trials Related to Tetracaine Injection
Tetracaine Versus Lidocaine Gel for Anesthetic Effect and Comfort in Patients Undergoing LASIK [Recruiting]
In this study the investigators will be comparing two different types of anesthetic, a
numbing eye drop and a numbing gel, to test if they are equally effective or if one has a
better outcome in terms of the level of comfort you experience one hour and one day after
your surgery. The two medications are commonly used and appear to be equally effective for
other types of eye surgery, such as cataract surgery. This study will show if one type of
anesthesia is preferred over another by patients getting LASIK. Before your LASIK procedure,
you will be given a short questionnaire to determine the baseline comfort of your eyes. In
the operating room, one type of anesthetic will be put in one eye, and the other medication
will be put in the other eye. Which anesthetic you get in each eye will be chosen in a
random way (similar to flipping a coin). After your LASIK surgery, the investigators will
ask you if you felt more comfort in your right eye, your left eye, or if they were equal,
and the investigators will ask you the same survey questions that were asked prior to your
LASIK to get more details about your experience.
Gluing Lacerations Utilizing Epinephrine [Recruiting]
Minor lacerations are a commonly treated injury in the paediatric emergency department .
Over the past decade, standard closure of these lacerations has evolved from suture repair
to closure with tissue adhesive (also referred to as "skin glue"). Local anaesthetic is not
routinely used during application of skin glue as it was with sutures. There are, however,
several potential advantages to pre-treating wounds with topical LET
(Lidocaine-Epinephrine-Tetracaine), a liquid gel with anaesthetic and vasoconstrictive
properties. Some believe LET can improve patient comfort, increase the ease of glue
application, and lead to better healing when used on lacerations being repaired with tissue
adhesive. This study aims to address the question of whether or not pre-treatment with LET
improves outcomes in minor lacerations repaired with skin glue. The primary hypothesis is
that pre-treatment of minor lacerations with LET will decrease pain (as measured on a Visual
Analog Scale) during repair with tissue adhesive.
