Last verified: April 2008
To relieve post laminectomy pain, we have tried intraoperative perineural injection of lidocaine right after the exposure in expecting that this would be preemptive analgesia by blocking the nerve transmission so that postoperative pain starts later and lighter.

Condition Intervention Phase
Laminectomy Drug: Lidocaine, perineural injection, intraoperatively Drug: Lidocaine Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Triple (Participant, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Official Title: Intraoperative Perineural Injection of Lidocaine for Postlaminectomy Pain

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • In the laminectomy operation, right after the exposure of the dorsal root , an injection of lidocaine attenuates postoperative pain. [ Time Frame: postoperative 24 hours ]

Enrollment: 40
Study Start Date: September 2007
Study Completion Date: December 2007
Primary Completion Date: November 2007 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Placebo Comparator: A01L Drug: Lidocaine, perineural injection, intraoperatively
0.5 cc lidocaine, one single injection over the dorsal root.
Other Name: lidocaine
Drug: Lidocaine
0.5 cc %2 lidocaine,single injection
No Intervention: B01C

Detailed Description:

A randomized double-blind 40 patients aged 18-50 of ASA I and II undergoing laminectomy were included in the study. All the patients were followed for their heart rate, arterial pressure , respiratory rate, oxygen saturation, end tidal CO2 and postoperative VAS scores.

All the patients were premedicated with midazolam 0.1 mg/kg intramuscularly 40 minutes prior to surgery. The induction was made 2 mg/kg propofol, 1 ug/kg remifentanyl, 0.5mg/kg rocuronium. After the orotracheal intubation anesthesia was maintained with isoflurane (%0.5-2.0) and 0.1 mg/kg rocuronium.Just before the exposure of dorsal root, 0.5 cc %2 lidocaine was injected on the dorsal root.The patients postoperative analgesic period, VAS scores and additional analgesic need was recorded. For the postoperative analgesia tramadol 1 mg/kg tramadol was used.
