This study was undertaken to develop a time- and cost-effective method for the detection of lidocaine, mepivacaine, prilocaine, bupivacaine, and etidocaine by HPLC/UV. The chromatographic system consisted of a C18-column (300 x 3.9 mm) for reversed-phase chromatography and a mobile phase of 30% acetonitrile and 70% 0.05 M sodium phosphate buffer. For the(More)
The use of chemical substances to prevent or treat local pain had its origin in South America. It was known that central nervous system stimulation occurred among the natives of Peru who chewed the leaves of an indigenous plant (Erythroxylon coca). Circumoral numbness was believed to have occurred as a by-product of this custom. Attempts to isolate the(More)
The emergence of resistance during therapy and the efficacy of different antibiotic therapy regimens were studied in 38 intensive care patients suffering from pulmonary infections caused by Enterobacter cloacae. Every three days a fresh isolate was obtained from each patient and tested in vitro for susceptibility to 16 antibiotics by determination of the(More)
UNLABELLED The aim of our study was to compare epidural anesthesia and analgesia (EDA) with ropivacaine versus general anesthesia followed by IV patient-controlled analgesia with morphine (GA/PCA) after hip replacement regarding pain, side effects, and discharge from the postanesthesia care unit. After ethics committee approval, randomization, and informed(More)
BACKGROUND This prospective double-blind trial evaluated the effect of sufentanil addition to epidural ropivacaine for elective Caesarean section. METHODS Sixty healthy parturients were randomly assigned to receive an initial dose of 90 mg of plain ropivacaine, or 90 mg of ropivacaine plus 10 or 20 microg of sufentanil (n = 20 each). Before surgery, if(More)
Protein binding of prilocaine was investigated in vitro under various conditions of changing pH, temperature and total plasma concentration by means of HPLC with UV-detection and ultrafiltration. Whereas changes in temperature (25 degrees C-40 degrees C) and pH (pH 5-pH 10) influenced protein binding markedly, rising plasma concentrations up to 16(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of different pain-relief methods (regional and systemic) following thoracotomies on the cardiovascular system, pulmonary gas exchange, various endocrine parameters and subjective perception. A further aspect was to evaluate the benefits of interpleural analgesia as a new regional technique against(More)
Intravenous regional anesthesia is a well established technique since the start of this century. It is easy to perform, with rapid onset of analgesia and safe to practice, when proper patient monitoring (ECG, intermittent blood pressure monitoring, oxygen delivery by nasal insufflation) is established and a local anesthetic solution with low systemic(More)
BACKGROUND So far only ropivacaine concentrations of 0.5 and 0.75% have been used for Caesarean section. This prospective double-blind trial evaluated the anaesthetic quality of ropivacaine 1% with and without sufentanil addition. METHODS Three groups of patients (n=20 each) scheduled for an elective Caesarean section were studied. The patients received(More)
Intravenous regional anesthesia (IVRA) of the foot is a rarely used but alternative method to other regional techniques and general anesthesia, especially when operating on the distal portion of the lower limb. The present report describes our method and experience with this type of anesthesia in approximately 500 patients, including pharmacokinetic and(More)
