BACKGROUND Levobupivacaine is a new long-acting local anesthetic, which is the isolated S-enantiomer of racemic bupivacaine with less cardiovascular and central nervous system toxicity than bupivacaine. Reports using levobupivacaine for epidural or brachial plexus anesthesia suggested equivalent clinical efficacy to bupivacaine. However, inadequate information for spinal anesthesia was found OBJECTIVE To study the onset of motor block and other anesthetic efficacy of intrathecally… Expand
A comparison of spinal anesthesia characteristics following intrathecal bupivacaine or levobupivacaine in lumbar disc surgery
TLDR
The results showed that block recovery time was shorter in the levobupivacaine group, this may be a disadvantage for longer operative procedures, but with proper patient selection this can be eliminated. 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
Spinal Anesthesia for Knee Arthroscopy Using Isobaric Bupivacaine and Levobupivacaine: Anesthetic and Neuroophthalmological Assessment
TLDR
Isobaric bupvacaine and levobupivacaine are analogous and well-tolerated anesthetics for knee arthroscopy, however, for bupavacaine, sensory and motor blockade onset was faster, and greater sensory blockade with a longer postoperative painless period was achieved. 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
A comparative study of the anesthetic potencies and hemodynamic changes of 0.5% isobaric levobupivacaine and 0.5% hyperbaric racemic bupivacaine for spinal anesthesia in lower abdominal and lower limb surgeries
Background: Spinal anesthesia is a preferable technique for lower abdominal surgeries as it provides effective sensory and motor block with rapid onset, attenuation of stress response and lessExpand
Comparison of Levobupivacaine and Levobupivacaine with Dexmedetomidine in Infraumbilical Surgeries Under Spinal Anesthesia
TLDR
It is concluded that Group LD has early-onset and prolonged duration of sensory and motor block and longer duration of postoperative analgesia than Group L. Expand
Estudio comparativo de la bupivacaína versus levobupivacaína a nivel intradural : valoración anestésica y neuro-oftalmológica
TLDR
Preliminary clinical experience shows equal efficacy for both local anesthetics, and the main differences were that bupivacaina produced a spinal block which showed time to maximum motor block and sensory and motor block onset faster than levobupivacaine, as well as present mean maximum level of sensory block higher. Expand
Comparative evaluation of anaesthetic efficacy and haemodynamic effects of a combination of isobaric bupivacaine with buprenorphine vs. isobaric levobupivacaine with buprenorphine for spinal anaesthesia – A double blinded randomised clinical trial
TLDR
It was showed that onset of sensory block is similar between isobaric levobupivacaine with buprenorphine 37 38 andIsobaric bupivacane with buPrenorphines. Expand
A comparative study of 0.5% levobupivacaine alone with 0.5% levobupivacaine and dexmedetomidine epidurally for major orthopedic surgeries
Background and Aims: Alpha (α )-2 agonists as epidural adjunct to Local Anaesthetics (LA) are being increasingly used for the purpose of faster onset of sensory blockade and prolonged duration ofExpand

Cardiac and CNS toxicity of levobupivacaine: strengths of evidence for advantage over bupivacaine.
TLDR
It is difficult to argue that levobupivacaine should not displace bupvacaine as the long-acting local anaesthetic of choice, despite a lack of perceived safety benefit and/or consideration of the additional costs that are associated with switching to levob upivacane, which is approximately 57% more expensive than bupavacaine.

UNLABELLED Based on findings that the cardiotoxicity infrequently observed with racemic bupivacaine shows enantioselectivity, i.e. it is more pronounced with the R(+)-enantiomer, the S(-)-enantiomerExpand
Bupivacaine, levobupivacaine and ropivacaine: are they clinically different?
TLDR
The reduced toxic potential of the two pure left-isomers supports their use in those clinical situations in which the risk of systemic toxicity related to either overdosing or unwanted intravascular injection is high, such as during epidural or peripheral nerve blocks. Expand
