Aim: The main aim of this study is to investigate the effect of levobupivacaine at different doses with fentanyl added on intrathecal anaesthesia in cesarean section. Materials and methods: This study is randomized, prospective and double-blind. Patients were divided into 3 groups (n=24 per group). Group 1: 11 mg levobupivacaine intrathecal, Group 2: 8 mg levobupivacaine+25 microgram fentanyl intrathecal and Group 3: 6 mg levobupivacaine+25 mg fentanyl intrathecal. Spinal anaesthesia start… Expand

Comparison of Intrathecal Levobupivacaine and Levobupivacaine plus Fentanyl for Cesarean Section
TLDR
Intrathecal levobupivacaine plus fentanyl prolonged duration of sensory block and rescue analgesia without prolonging motor block which could help in early ambulation. 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.

Patient-controlled epidural analgesia after Caesarean section: levobupivacaine 0.15% versus ropivacaine 0.15% alone or combined with fentanyl 2 µg/ml: a comparative study
TLDR
Dilute local anaesthetic solutions provided satisfactory postoperative analgesia after Caesarean section when used with a patient-controlled epidural analgesia (PCEA) device when using with a PCEA device. Expand

TLDR
The block characteristics of hypobaric unilateral spinal block with levobupivacaine or bupvacaine are similar and their effect on circulatory function is slight and Levobupavacaine provides an option in case bup Vivacaine is not available. Expand
Small dose spinal bupivacaine for Cesarean delivery does not reduce hypotension but accelerates motor recovery
TLDR
This study compared 4.5 mg and 12 mg doses of intrathecal bupivacaine on maternal hemodynamics and side effects during Cesarean delivery to determine if anticipated reductions in side effects were reflected in increased patient satisfaction. Expand
The anaesthetic and recovery profile of two concentrations (0.25% and 0.50%), of intrathecal isobaric levobupivacaine for combined spinal-epidural (CSE) anaesthesia in patients undergoing modified Stark method caesarean delivery: a double blinded randomized trial.
TLDR
The intraoperative effectiveness, hemodynamic effects, anaesthetic recovery times and patients satisfaction after isobaric levobupivacaine (L) 0.25% versus L0.50% for spinal anaesthesia for caesarean delivery with the Stark technique with good maternal satisfaction was compared. Expand
Spinal Hyperbaric Ropivacaine-Fentanyl for Day-Surgery
TLDR
Faster mobilization but equal onset and duration of analgesia were achieved with intrathecal hyperbaric ropivacaine 10 mg plus fentanyl 20 μg as compared with hyperbarics ropvacaine 15 mg. Expand
Neuraxial morphine induced pruritus in two cats and treatment with sub anaesthetic doses of propofol.
TLDR
This is the first clinical report of morphine-induced pruritus in cats and management with low-dose propofol, and cases suggest an antipruritic mechanism for lipid-formulation prop ofol. Expand
Obstetric spinal analgesia and anesthesia
TLDR
The new local anesthetics have established their position in obstetric regional anesthesia, but it remains difficult to demonstrate a superior outcome as compared with bupivacaine; the same is true for combined spinal-epidural and ambulation. Expand
Efficacy of ondansetron for spinal anesthesia during cesarean section: a meta-analysis of randomized trials
TLDR
Ondansetron effectively reduces the incidences of nausea/vomiting and bradycardia under spinal anesthesia during cesarean section. Expand
