|Official Title:||Comparison of the Catheter-over-needle and Catheter-through-needle Methods for Continuous Delivery of Local Anesthetic During Peripheral Nerve Blockade|
|Study Start Date :||January 2012|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date :||December 2015|
|Estimated Study Completion Date :||July 2016|
Patients will receive a catheter placed by a catheter-over-needle method.
Patients in the experimental group will receive a perineural catheter placed by the catheter-over-needle method.
Active Comparator: Catheter-through-needle
Patients will receive a catheter placed by the traditional catheter-though-needle method.
Patients in the control group will receive a perineural catheter placed by the traditional catheter-though-needle method.
- Incidence of anesthetic/fluid leakage at catheter insertion site. [ Time Frame: Duration of time that perineural catheter is in the patient ]Evidence of leakage of local anesthetic at the catheter insertion site and any catheter dislodgement or premature withdrawal will be recorded.
- Confidence in accurate catheter placement. [ Time Frame: Duration of catheter placement in patient. ]A subjective assessment of the catheterization and local anesthetic delivery technique will be provided by the anesthesiologist.
- Time taken to place catheter near target nerve after initial skin puncture. [ Time Frame: From identification of needle insertion site to correct placement of needle in patient; approximately 2 minutes. ]The time (in seconds) taken to correctly place the needle/catheter for delivery of local anesthetic will be recorded.
