The purpose of this study was to determine if intrathecal fentanyl speeds the onset and prolongs the duration of sensory and motor block, prolongs the duration of postoperative analgesia, or increases the incidence of adverse effects in patients undergoing spinal anesthesia for outpatient knee arthroscopy. Fifty patients were randomized to receive 12 mg of hyperbaric bupivacaine 0.75% with 25 micrograms (0.5 mL) of fentanyl (group 1) or 12 mg of hyperbaric bupivacaine 0.75% with 0.5 mL of… CONTINUE READING
