|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Pain||Drug: Lidocaine Drug: Bupivacaine||Phase 4|
We hypothesize that the use of the LLA bupivacaine will promote local inflammation leading to increased pain and central sensitization as evaluated by increase in pain at later time points. Hence our main hypothesis to be evaluated and statistically tested for our primary endpoint (Aim 1) is:
HO: There is no difference in mean levels of biochemical mediators of inflammation between groups.
HA: The bupivacaine group has higher levels of biochemical mediators following surgery.
|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|

0.5% bupivacaine/1:200,000 epinephrine
Up to 5 capsules of 0.5% Bupivacaine with epinephrine given post-operatively.
Other Name: Marcain, Marcaine, Sensorcaine and Vivacaine.
2% lidocaine/1:200,000 epinephrine
Up to 5 capsules of 2% lidocaine with epinephrine as a reinforcement drug post-operatively

- Assess the local inflammatory response as measured by tissue expression of the prostanoid enzymes cyclooxygenase (COX-2) and other cytokines and inflammatory mediators. [ Time Frame: 48 hours ]The difference in inflammatory gene expression between treatment groups.
- Evaluate the clinical outcome of postoperative pain following endodontic surgery, as measured by pain category and visual analog scale (VAS) and postoperative analgesic requirements. [ Time Frame: 48 hours ]The subject-reported pain measured at 48 hours after surgery.
