Clinical Trials Related to Zingo (Lidocaine)
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
A Study to Characterize the Phenotype in Patients With Morton's Neuroma and to Explore the Effect of Local Administration of Xylocaine (Lidocaine) [Recruiting]
To characterize the phenotype in patients with Morton's neuroma and to explore the effect of
local administration of Xylocaine (lidocaine)
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.
The Effect of Intravenous Lidocaine and Intraperitoneal Lidocaine Irrigation on Pain After Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy [Recruiting]
This prospective randomized study aims to comparison the effectiveness of intravenous
lidocaine injection and intraperitoneam lidocaine irrigation on the relief of pain in
patients undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
A total of 83 patients will be randomized into one of three groups (group C or group I or
group P) based on Excel number generation.
Patients in group C will receive normal saline intravenous injection, and patients in group
I will receive an intravenous bolus injection of 1. 5 mg/kg lidocaine followed by a
continuous lidocaine infusion of 2 mg/kg/hr.
Patients in group P will receive intraperitoneal lidocaine irrigation with 3. 5 mg/kg
lidocaine and normal saline 100cc.
Visual analogue scale pain scores, fentanyl consumption and the frequency at which patients
pushed the button (FPB) of a patient-controlled analgesia system will be recorded at 2, 4,
8, 12, 24, 48 hours postoperatively.
