A Comparison of Spinal Anesthesia with Levobupivacaine and Hyperbaric Bupivacaine for Cesarean Sections: A Randomized Trial
TLDR
Since motor block time is shorter, and side effects like hypotension, bradycardia and nausea are less, the combination of levobupivacaine + fentanyl can be a good alternative in cesarean sections. Expand
Spinal anesthesia: comparison of plain ropivacaine, bupivacaine and levobupivacaine for lower abdominal surgery.
TLDR
Bupivacaine required more often the use of a vasoactive drug (ephedrine) compared to both ropvacaine and levobupivACaine and of a sympathomimetic drug (atropine) comparedTo compare the anesthetic efficacy and safety of three local anesthetic agents: racemic bupivacane and its two isomers, in patients undergoing lower abdominal surgery.

A comparison of spinal isobaric levobupivacaine and racemic bupivacaine for lower abdominal and lower extremity surgery.
TLDR
The present study indicated that 15 mg of isobaric racemic bupvacaine and levobupivacaine for spinal anesthesia had equivalent peak block height and showed equally effective efficacy regarding to both the onset time and duration of motor and sensory blockade. Expand
Update on local anesthetics: focus on levobupivacaine
TLDR
The pharmacological essentials of the safer profile of levobupivacaine are discussed, the evidence regarding the current clinical indications is analyzed, and the evidence about the equipotency of the two drugs is analyzed. Expand
Intrathecal bupivacaine or levobupivacaine: Which should be used for elderly patients?
TLDR
It is suggested that levobupivacaine can be used as a substitute for bupvacaine for spinal anaesthesia in elderly patients ≥65 years of age undergoing elective TUR-P or Tur-M operations. Expand
