Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Surgical Anesthesia Sufficient [ Time Frame: Thirty minutes ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Sufficiency of surgical anesthesia will be determined by the presence of a complete sensory or motor block. If general anesthesia needs to be added to achieve operative analgesia, the surgical block will not be deemed sufficient.

  • Post-operative Pain Relief [ Time Frame: Twenty-four hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Intensity of post-operative pain will be measured by a numerical scale from 0-10 by the patient


Estimated Enrollment: 100
