Cystometrograms (CMG) and urethral pressure profiles (UPP) were used in six anesthetized dogs to study the urodynamic effects of intrathecal (IT) injections of fentanyl and buprenorphine. The CMG and UPP were examined for each of the two drugs in all dogs (four experiments per animal). The measurements were performed before and 15, 30, 60, 90, and 120 min after IT injection of either 1.5 micrograms/kg fentanyl or 2 micrograms/kg buprenorphine. Fifteen minutes after IT injection of fentanyl… CONTINUE READING
