Comparison of Two Different Doses of Fentanyl Combined With Levobupivacaine For Elective Cesarean Section

  title={Comparison of Two Different Doses of Fentanyl Combined With Levobupivacaine For Elective Cesarean Section},
  author={M. Arıkan and B. Aslan and E. Horasanlı and A. But},
Objectives: In this prospective, randomized, double-blind, controlled study, we compared the effects of two different doses of fentanyl (10 μg or 25 μg) given intrathecally in addition to 0.5% levobupivacaine for cesarean section. Methods: Eight hundred, ASA I-II parturients, who were scheduled for elective cesarean section, were enrolled in the study. They were randomly allocated into three groups. Group I received 0.5% levobupivacaine; Group II received 0.5% levobupivacaine plus 15 μg… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper


A randomized comparison of different doses of intrathecal levobupivacaine combined with fentanyl for elective cesarean section: prospective, double-blinded study
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
Comparison of Intrathecal Levobupivacaine Combined with Sufentanil, Fentanyl, or Placebo for Elective Caesarean Section: A Prospective, Randomized, Double-Blind, Controlled Study☆
It is suggested that the addition of sufentanil and fentanyl to intrathecal levobupivacaine during caesarean section surgery is more effective than the administration of levob upvacaine alone. Expand
Comparison of intrathecal bupivacaine, levobupivacaine for cesarean section.
The level of absence of cold sensation, level of pinprick analgesia, and time to achieve sensory block to T4 level were statistically higher in patients receiving hyperbaric bupivacaine than in patients received plain bupvacaine and plain levobupivacane, while the differences were not statistically significant in all groups regarding effective surgical anesthesia, postoperative analgesia and side effects.

A Comparison of Spinal Anesthesia with Levobupivacaine and Hyperbaric Bupivacaine for Cesarean Sections: A Randomized Trial
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
A comparison of intrathecal levobupivacaine with hyperbaric bupivacaine for elective cesarean section: A prospective randomized double-blind study
Levobupivacaine given intrathecally can provide safe and effective analgesic choice for parturients undergoing elective cesarean section as the incidence of side effects with its use was significantly lower in comparison to hyperbaric bupvacaine. 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
A randomized clinical study comparing spinal anesthesia with isobaric levobupivacaine with fentanyl and hyperbaric bupivacaine with fentanyl in elective cesarean sections
Intrathecal isobaric levobupivacaine-f fentanyl combination is a good alternative to hyperbaric bupivacane-fentanyl combination in cesarean surgery as it is less effective in motor block, it maintains hemodynamic stability at higher sensorial block levels. Expand
Different preloading protocols with constant ephedrine infusion in the prevention of hypotension for elective cesarean section under spinal anesthesia.
It was concluded that preloading with 20 mL/kg of RL prior to spinal anesthesia followed by constant ephedrine infusion 3 mg/min after spinal block reduced the incidence of hypotension and of nausea and vomiting and decreased the total amount ofEphedrine. Expand
Comparison of the effects of intrathecal ropivacaine, levobupivacaine, and bupivacaine for Caesarean section.
The racemic mixture of bupivacaine combined with sufentanil remains an appropriate choice when performing Caesarean sections under spinal anaesthesia. Expand
Minimum local anaesthetic dose (MLAD) of intrathecal levobupivacaine and ropivacaine for Caesarean section *
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.
