Lidocaine is a well-documented local anaesthetic often used for paracervical block (PCB) in pregnant women. For this reason, the substance was used early on for PCB in connection with transvaginal follicle aspiration. However, the concentration reached in follicular fluid after PCB or local infiltration of the vaginal wall has not been previously(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Skin blood flow changes after intradermal injection of ropivacaine in various concentrations with or without epinephrine were investigated using laser Doppler flowmetry. METHODS Twenty-three non-smoking, healthy, young male volunteers participated. Four test sites were used on each forearm (volar surface) in a randomized,(More)
A 5% eutectic mixture of the two local anaesthetics lidocaine and prilocaine (EMLA, Astra Läkemedel AB) has been tested for application to the skin in the removal of split skin grafts. EMLA is an oil-in-water emulsion cream, containing 50 mg of active substances per ml (25 mg lidocaine, 25 mg prilocaine). The cream has been used on the donor sites of 146(More)
An eutectic mixture of 5% lidocaine and 5% prilocaine applied locally to the skin inhibited epinephrine-induced sweating in healthy subjects. It also inhibited palmar and axillary hyperhidrosis from 1 to 6 hours after application to 15 of 17 patients tested. A placebo lotion was without effect. When used daily for 3--4 weeks, only 25% of the patients were(More)
The aim of our prospective multicentric study was to develop a screening method for pulmonary hypertension in patients with chronic lung diseases. We investigated 710 patients in 10 hospitals: 315 males and 109 females with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and 286 males with silicosis. Manifest pulmonary hypertension was defined as pulmonary artery(More)
The effects of the cutaneous application of EMLA cream (a eutectic mixture of lignocaine and prilocaine in their base form) were studied in volunteers. When tested by pin-prick, EMLA cream 2.5% and 5% produced analgesia of the area tested, the cream being most effective if left in contact with the skin for 60 min. The pain produced by the insertion of an(More)
The aim was to study whether topically applied local anaesthetics and related compounds exert an antithrombotic effect. The assay was carried out through vital microscopy of the microcirculation in the hamster cheek pouch model as injured by laser microbeam irradiation, essentially in order to record the differences in the incidence of thrombus formation(More)
The influence of intradermal needle insertion and fluid injection on skin blood flow was investigated using laser Doppler flowmetry. Seventeen healthy, young male volunteers participated. Four test sites on each forearm (volar surface) were used in a randomized, double-blind study. Recordings were made at 20, 40, 60 and in Group III also at 90 min after(More)
The effect of bupivacaine 7.5 mg/ml with epinephrine 5μg/ml, etidocaine 15 mg/ml with epinephrine 5 μg/ml, and lidocaine 20 mg/ml with epinephrine 12.5 μg/ml was studied when used for oral infiltration anesthesia. Twenty healthy volunteers took part in the experimental and double-blind study. One ml of the respective anesthetic solution was deposited(More)
2 long-acting local anaesthetics, bupivacaine and etidocaine, have been compared to lidocaine with regard to effect during surgical removal of impacted mandibular third molars and effect upon the immediate postoperative pain. It can be concluded from this study that both bupivacaine and etidocaine as well as lidocaine were highly effective and without(More)
