The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT03810547
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : January 18, 2019
Last Update Posted : January 22, 2019

Ayman Anis Metry, Ain Shams University

Brief Summary:
100 patients undergoing abdominoplasty under spinal anesthesia. 100 patients undergoing abdominoplasty under general anesthesia

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Spinal Anesthesia Suitability for Abdominoplasty Drug: Propofol 10 Mg/mL Intravenous Emulsion Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
200 patients, American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) physical status classes I and II, were enrolled in this feasible study. All patients were subjected to abdominoplasty operation under spinal anesthesia or general anesthesia. Any intraoperative complications like hypotension, bradycardia, pain, nausea and vomiting related to spinal anesthesia were managed and recorded. Postoperative visual analogue scale (VAS) was used to assess pain severity and the need for analgesia to be administered.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: Spinal anesthesia
Patients undergoing abdominoplasty under spinal anesthesia may need to drug administration like propofol or ketamine or change anesthesia to general anesthesia.
Drug: Propofol 10 Mg/mL Intravenous Emulsion
when spinal anesthesia is not satisfactory intervention drugs are used
Other Name: ketamine

No Intervention: General anesthesia
General anesthesia for abdominoplasty

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in Pain sensation: Visual analogue scale [ Time Frame: pain assessment during the operation and every 4 hours for 12 hours ]
    Visual analogue scale for Pain assessment from 1 with least pain to 10 with maximum pain felt

  2. Patients satisfaction: Satisfaction score changes [ Time Frame: Intraoperative assessment every 30 minutes till end of surgery. ]
    Satisfaction score with maximum score is fully satisfied and least is completely disagree
