Purpose: Levobupivacaine showed a lower risk of cardiovascular and central nervous system (CNS) toxicity than bupivacaine which is the most popular local anesthetic agent in obstetric practice. The aim of this study was to investigate the clinical efficacy of levobupivacaine compared with hyperbaric bupivacaine for spinal anesthesia for cesarean section. Methods: 60 pregnant women in ASA I - II group scheduled to have elective cesarean operation were allocated into the study. Patients were… Expand
A Comparative Study of Spinal Anaesthesia with Levobupivacaine and Hyperbaric Bupivacaine for Cesarean Sections
Introduction: Levobupivacaine showed a lower risk of cardiovascular and central nervous system (CNS) toxicity than bupivacaine which is the most popular local anesthetic agent in obstetric practice.Expand
Comparison of isobaric levobupivacaine versus hyperbaric bupivacaine in spinal anesthesia for cesarean section: A prospective randomized case control study
TLDR
Isobaric levobupivacaine (12.5mg) can be used as an alternative to hyperbaric bupivacane (10mg) in spinal anesthesia for cesarean section as it offers effective sensory motor blockade with clinically comparable onset time. Expand
Comparison of intrathecal hyperbaric bupivacaine and levobupivacaine for Cesarean section
TLDR
Levobupivacaine, the pure S (-) enantiomer of racemic bupivacane, is an equally effective local anesthetic for spinal anesthesia for Cesarean section, compared with racemic bespoke anesthetic. Expand
Fentanyl with low dose bupivacaine (isobaric and hyperbaric) and levobupivacaine for combined spinal-epidural technique in cesarean section -
TLDR
Sensory block with no motor block was provided by adding fentanyl, especially to levobupivacaine, which eases perioperative period and delivers patient comfort. Expand
Comparison of levobupivacaine and levobupivacaine with fentanyl in infraumbilical surgeries under spinal anaesthesia
TLDR
Addition of fentanyl to levobupivacaine leads to early onset and prolonged duration of sensory and motor block as well as postoperative analgesia with stable haemodynamics and minimal side effects. Expand
Comparison between isobaric levobupivacaine 0.5% and hyperbaric bupivacaine 0.5% in spinal anesthesia in lower limb surgeries and lower abdominal surgeries in adult patients
TLDR
It was observed that 0.5% isobaric levobupivacaine provided better hemodynamic stability, longer duration of sensory and motor block as compared to bupvacaine. Expand
Study of spinal anaesthesia with isobaric levobupivacaine and ropivacaine in elective lower limb orthopaedic surgeries
TLDR
Intrathecal isobaric Levobupivacaine 15mg and Ropivacane 15mg are effective in lower limb orthopaedic surgeries without significant haemodynamic changes. Expand
Intrathecal levobupivacaine versus bupivacaine for inguinal hernia surgery: a randomized controlled trial
TLDR
It has a shorter duration of sensory and motor block, allowing earlier mobilization in daycare surgeries, and a lower incidence of intraoperative hypotension, and is an effective alternative to bupivacaine for patients undergoing unilateral inguinal hernia surgery. Expand
Comparison of the Effectiveness of Hyperbaric Bupivacaine and Isobaric Levobupivacaine for Spinal Anesthesia for Abdominal and Lower Extremity Surgery
Bupivacaine has often been used in spinal anesthesia because of its relatively fast onset, long working hours and good sensory and motor block effects. Levobupivacaine is also reported to have moreExpand

A randomized comparison of different doses of intrathecal levobupivacaine combined with fentanyl for elective cesarean section: prospective, double-blinded study
TLDR
Levobupivacaine 7.5 mg combined with fentanyl 15 μg is suitable for combined spinal–epidural anesthesia in elective cesarean section and more effective anesthesia and greater patient and surgeon satisfaction is believed. Expand

The racemic mixture of bupivacaine combined with sufentanil remains an appropriate choice when performing Caesarean sections under spinal anaesthesia. Expand
Hyperbaric Spinal Levobupivacaine: A Comparison to Racemic Bupivacaine in Volunteers
TLDR
Hyperbaric spinal levobupivacaine has equivalent clinical efficacy to racemic bupvacaine for spinal anesthesia in doses from 4 to 12 mg. Expand

TLDR
Nine milligrams of either plain or hyperbaric bupivacaine with fentanyl intrathecally provided similar onset, depth, and duration of sensory anesthesia for cesarean delivery with good maternal satisfaction. Expand

Levobupivacaine and fentanyl for spinal anaesthesia: a randomized trial
TLDR
This prospective, randomized, double‐blind study compared the clinical efficacy, motor block and haemodynamic effects of using 2.5% levobupivacaine with fentanyl 15 μg for spinal anaesthesia in urological surgery and concluded that 2.3 mL of 0.5%, as effective as 2.4%, is as effective. Expand
Levobupivacaine versus racemic bupivacaine for spinal anaesthesia in orthopaedic major surgery.
TLDR
Comparisons of clinical and anaesthetic features of levobupivacaine and racemic bupivacane when intrathecally administered in 60 patients undergoing major orthopaedic surgical procedures found the former remaining a cheap and effective local anaesthetic yet, and the latter a valid alternative for spinal anaesthesia.

Minimum local anaesthetic dose (MLAD) of intrathecal levobupivacaine and ropivacaine for Caesarean section *
TLDR
The minimum local anaesthetic dose (MLAD) of spinal levobupvacaine and ropivacaine for Caesarean section was determined and a test solution had to achieve a visual analogue pain score (VAPS) of 30 mm or less at skin incision, uterine incison, birth, peritoneal closure, and at the end of surgery.
