Ultrasound Guidance in Nerve Block Anaesthesia
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Treatment||ultrasound-guidance with echography|
|Sponsor||University Hospital, Strasbourg, France|
|Start date||May 2005|
|End date||March 2009|
|Trial size||1002 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT00213954, 20050101, 3446|
Nerve block anaesthesia is wildly practised in France, avoiding general anaesthesia in a number of cases and producing excellent post-operative analgesia in trauma and orthopaedic surgeries. Even realised by experimented anaesthetists, 5-15% of failures and rare complications (such as vascular puncture, paresthesia, systemic local anaesthetic toxicity, epidural and spinal anaesthesia, neuropathy) are noticed. The aim of the study is the evaluation of an ultrasound-guidance technique in the four predetermined blocks and the incidence of their complications.
|Endpoint classification||efficacy study|
|Intervention model||parallel assignment|
Sensory and motor block quality
time frame: 15, 30 and 60 min after the block is performed
time frame: during the hospitalisation and by phone 1, 3, 6 and 9 months after the surgery
Male or female participants at least 18 years old.
- Patients aged 18 years and greater, scheduled for one of these blocks: interscalene, humeral, parasacral or lumbar blocks, for trauma or orthopaedic surgeries, who have consented to the study and are with social insurance registration
- Block's contraindications, treatment by verapamil or flecainide
