Comparison of the Effectiveness of Hyperbaric Bupivacaine and Isobaric Levobupivacaine for Spinal Anesthesia for Abdominal and Lower Extremity Surgery
Bupivacaine has often been used in spinal anesthesia because of its relatively fast onset, long working hours and good sensory and motor block effects. Levobupivacaine is also reported to have moreExpand


Comparison of levobupivacaine and levobupivacaine with fentanyl in infraumbilical surgeries under spinal anaesthesia
Addition of fentanyl to levobupivacaine leads to early onset and prolonged duration of sensory and motor block as well as postoperative analgesia with stable haemodynamics and minimal side effects. Expand
Comparison of Intrathecal Hyperbaric 0.5% Bupivacaine, Isobaric 0.5% Levobupivacaine and Isobaric 0.75% Ropivacaine for Lower Abdominal Surgeries. -
Hyperbaric Bupivacaine had a significantly faster onset of sensory block at T10 as compared to the both the other groups with isobaric solutions and seems to be an ideal choice for shorter duration surgeries at the expense of hemodynamic stability. 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.

Hemodynamic impact of isobaric levobupivacaine versus hyperbaric bupivacaine for subarachnoid anesthesia in patients aged 65 and older undergoing hip surgery
Given the hemodynamic stability and lower incidence of intraoperative hypotension observed, levobupivacaine could be the agent of choice for subarachnoid anesthesia in elderly patients. Expand
Intrathecal bupivacaine or levobupivacaine: Which should be used for elderly patients?
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
A comparison of spinal anesthesia characteristics following intrathecal bupivacaine or levobupivacaine in lumbar disc surgery
The results showed that block recovery time was shorter in the levobupivacaine group, this may be a disadvantage for longer operative procedures, but with proper patient selection this can be eliminated. Expand
Clinical profile of levobupivacaine in regional anesthesia: A systematic review

  • 2013
Clinically, levobupivacaine has been observed to be well-tolerated in regional anesthesia techniques both after bolus administration and continuous post-operative infusion, and the pharmacokinetic and pharmacological essentials of the safer profile of levob upvacaine are discussed. 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 levobupivacaine alone and in combination with fentanyl and sufentanil in patients undergoing transurethral resection of the prostate
This study showed that combining lower dose levobupivacaine with fentanyl and sufentanil provides faster onset of sensorial block, lower frequency and shorter duration of motor block, and longer analgesia time in TURP under spinal anesthesia. Expand
Intrathecal low-dose levobupivacaine and bupivacaine combined with fentanyl in a randomised controlled study for caesarean section: blockade characteristics, maternal and neonatal effects.
In spinal anaesthesia for caesarean section, using low-dose levobupivacaine in combination with fentanyl elicits effective sensorial blockade and less motor blockade with similar haemodynamic and neonatal effects than usage of low- dose bupivacain combined with fentanyl. Expand
