Objectives To compare two intrathecal anaesthetics, bupivacaine and levobupivacaine, for their effects on motor and sensory blockade and haemodynamics in patients aged ≥65 years undergoing transurethral resection of the prostate (TUR-P) or transurethral resection of the urinary bladder (TUR-M). Methods Patients scheduled to undergo TUR-P or TUR-M were randomized to receive either 3 ml (15 mg) 0.5% isobaric levobupivacaine (group L) or 3 ml (15 mg) of 0.5% hyperbaric bupivacaine (group B) for… Expand
Clinical Assessment of 0.5% Levobupivacaine with 0.5% Bupivacaine Administration in the Management of Spinal Anaesthesia
TLDR
The present study concludes that, the time for onset of sensory and motor block showed no statistical significance in both groups and the duration of motor block was shorter, resulting in early ambulation in Levobupivacaine group. Expand
“A prospective clinical study of 0.5% levobupivacaine with 0.5% bupivacaine in spinal anaesthesia”
TLDR
Though there was no statistical significance in terms of onset of sensory and motor block, duration of motor block was less in Levobupivacaine group, and stable haemodynamics and less side effects were observed with Levob upicaine, which is a better alternative to Bupvacaine for spinal anaesthesia.

Interscalene versus combined supraclavicular with suprascapular ultrasound-guided nerve blocks in arthroscopic rotator cuff surgery with levobupivacaine
© 2019 Al Azhar Assiut Medical Journal | Published by W Background In recent years, shoulder arthroscopy has been used as a diagnostic and therapeutic maneuver. With the introduction of ultrasound,Expand
Levobupivacaine in spinal anesthesia for primary knee and hip arthroplasty
TLDR
Spinal anesthesia with levobupivacaine is more safe for elderly patients undergoing knee and hip arthroplasty as well as the duration of analgesia and postoperative nausea and vomiting. Expand
Hemodynamic Changes During Spinal Anesthesia with Different Bupivacaine Concentrations in Elderly Cardiac Patients Undergoing Transurethral Resection of Prostate
TLDR
Hyperbaric bupivacaine 8.75 mg injected at L4-L5 is sufficient to provide adequate sensory and motor block, while maintaining hemodynamic stability during TURP procedures, which didn’t occur in any case of the authors' study. Expand
Bupivacaine in alginate and chitosan nanoparticles: an in vivo evaluation of efficacy, pharmacokinetics, and local toxicity
TLDR
The encapsulation of BVC prolongs the local anesthetic effect after infraorbital nerve blockade and altered the pharmacokinetics after intrathecal injection. Expand
Continuous thoracic spinal anesthesia with local anesthetic plus midazolam and ketamine is superior to local anesthetic plus fentanyl in major abdominal surgery
TLDR
In a population of frail, elderly patients, thoracic continuous spinal anesthesia with local anesthetic plus midazolam and ketamine was superior to localAnesthetic plus fentanyl. Expand
Enantioselective synthesis of α-perfluoroalkylated prolines, their 6,7-membered homologues and derivatives.
TLDR
Enantioselective synthesis of α-perfluoroalkylated cyclic amino acids and their derivatives was elaborated using the organocatalytic Strecker reaction with 5-7 membered cyclic ketimines to produce chiral Rf-prolines and their 6,7-membered homologues. Expand

Comparison of the effects of intrathecal ropivacaine, levobupivacaine, and bupivacaine for Caesarean section.
TLDR
The racemic mixture of bupivacaine combined with sufentanil remains an appropriate choice when performing Caesarean sections under spinal anaesthesia. Expand
Spinal anesthesia for transurethral resection operations: levobupivacaine with or without fentanyl.
TLDR
Both regimes are effective, and the addition of fentanyl to levobupivacaine may offers the advantage of shorter duration of motor block and may be used as an alternative to pure levob upvacaine solution in spinal anesthesia, for transurethral resection. Expand

TLDR
The clinical effects of levobupivacaine in spinal anesthesia in children undergoing elective lower abdominal or lower limb surgery are similar to those obtained with racemic bupivacane in subarachnoidesthesia in children. Expand

TLDR
The only major difference observed was the absence of motor impairment in levobupivacaine-treated parturients as compared with the Racemic Bupvacaine group, in which the incidence of a Bromage-1 motor block was 34%. Expand

TLDR
The results suggest that S(-)-bupivacaine can provide satisfactory surgical anesthesia, but the spread of the plain solution is unpredictable. Expand
