Enzymatic conversion of hydrocodone to hydromorphone is catalyzed by cytochrome P450 2D6, which is inactive in about 7% of Caucasians [poor metabolizers (PMs)] and can be inhibited by quinidine pretreatment in the remainder [extensive metabolizers (EMs)]. If hydromorphone, having a substantially higher mu-receptor affinity than hydrocodone, contributes(More)
Remifentanil is a short-acting, esterase-metabolized opioid analgesic. This study compared the abuse liability of remifentanil with that of fentanyl and placebo in a randomized, double-blind, crossover study. Twelve recreational users of opioids received increasing doses of remifentanil (0.6, 1.2, 1.8, 2.4, and 3.0 microg/kg), fentanyl (0.4, 0.8, 1.3, 2.0,(More)

This study examined anesthetic development and hemodynamic changes during two techniques of hyperbaric lidocaine administration through 27-gauge intrathecal catheters for continuous spinal anesthesia in 55 elderly patients undergoing transurethral prostatic resection. Twenty-five patients were randomly assigned to receive hyperbaric lidocaine 5% solution in(More)
