661. Lidocaine patch for postoperative analgesia after radical retropubic prostatectomy. (Abstract)

Lidocaine patch for postoperative analgesia after radical retropubic prostatectomy. In a prospective, double-blind, placebo-controlled study, patients undergoing radical retropubic prostatectomy under general anesthesia were randomly assigned to receive a lidocaine patch or placebo applied on each side of the wound at the end of surgery. Data were collected for 24 h after surgery. Seventy patients completed the study (36 lidocaine group, 34 placebo group). Demographics and postoperative (...) morphine consumption were not different between the groups. However, the lidocaine patch group reported significantly less pain on coughing (19%-33% reduction) over all time periods (treatment vs placebo P < 0.0001, time x treatment P = 0.3056) and at rest (17%-32% reduction) for up to 6 h (treatment vs placebo P = 0.0003, time x treatment P = 0.0130).

) and latex skin prick test.Seventy-five patients (41 men, 34 women, mean age of 65 years old), with a mean 3.8 years under dialysis, were included. Nineteen patients (25%) had at least one positive skin test and 13 (17%) a positive patch test to at least one allergen relative to dialysis process including eight tests to lidocaine-prilocaine cream and three to povidone-iodine. Tests results seemed clinically relevant since nine patients had localized pruritus at the fistula site and six patients active (...) eczema around it.Contact sensitizations are frequent in haemodialysis patients and are linked to vascular access conditioning especially the use of lidocaine-prilocaine cream. Designing a specific test battery could help to diagnose the potential allergens and subsequently to give advice to avoid contact with sensitizing agents.

patients. Possible sources of sensitization and the clinical histories of the patients are analysed.Positive patch test reactions to one or more topical anaesthetics were seen in 25/620 patients. Dibucaine reactions were most common (20/25), and lidocaine sensitization was seen in two patients. Six patients had reactions to ester-type and/or amide-type anaesthetics concurrently. Local preparations for perianal conditions were the most common sensitizers. One patient had developed occupational (...) sensitization to procaine with multiple cross-reactions and with concurrent penicillin sensitization from procaine penicillin.Dibucaine-containing perianal medicaments are the major source of contact sensitization to topical anaesthetics. Although sensitization to multiple anaesthetics can be seen, cross-reactions are possible. Contact sensitization to lidocaine is not common, and possible cross-reactions should be determined when reactions to lidocaine are seen. Occupational procaine sensitization from

673. Contact urticaria from Emla cream. (Abstract)

Contact urticaria from Emla cream. We report the first case of immediate-type hypersensitivity caused by Emla cream. A 55-year-old woman, after using Emla cream, went on to develop urticaria. An open test was positive to Emla cream. Patch tests and prick tests were performed with Emla cream, the components of Emla cream (lidocaine, prilocaine and castor oil) and other local anaesthetics. The patch test with lidocaine and the prick test with Emla cream were both positive. An intradermal test (...) and subcutaneous administration of 3 anaesthetics that had negative patch tests and prick tests were performed and well tolerated, allowing their use. In the literature, anaphylactic reactions to lidocaine injections, delayed-type hypersensitivity after lidocaine subcutaneous injections and contact dermatitis from Emla cream have all been described. This first case of contact urticaria from Emla cream was due to lidocaine and did not show any cross-reaction with other local anaesthetics.

an important role in the management of neuropathic pain. The transdermal lidocaine (lignocaine) patch is recommended as first-line therapy for the treatment of postherpetic neuralgia. Furthermore, in patients with severe persistent pain, transdermal delivery systems using the opioids fentanyl and buprenorphine are able to achieve satisfactory analgesia with good tolerability, comparable to the benefits seen with oral formulations. Transdermal administration is the ideal therapeutic approach for chronic

675. Bulleyaconitine A isolated from aconitum plant displays long-acting local anesthetic properties in vitro and in vivo. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Bulleyaconitine A isolated from aconitum plant displays long-acting local anesthetic properties in vitro and in vivo. Bulleyaconitine A (BLA) is an active ingredient of Aconitum bulleyanum plants. BLA has been approved for the treatment of chronic pain and rheumatoid arthritis in China, but its underlying mechanism remains unclear.The authors examined (1) the effects of BLA on neuronal voltage-gated Na channels in vitro under the whole cell patch clamp configuration and (2) the sensory (...) of the sciatic nerve but also induced hyperexcitability, followed by sedation, arrhythmia, and respiratory distress. When BLA at 0.375 mm was coinjected with 2% lidocaine (approximately 80 mm) or epinephrine (1:100,000) to reduce drug absorption by the bloodstream, the sensory and motor functions of the sciatic nerve remained fully blocked for approximately 4 h and regressed completely after approximately 7 h, with minimal systemic effects.BLA reduces neuronal Na currents strongly at +50 mV in a use

676. A role for peripheral afferents in the pathophysiology and treatment of at-level neuropathic pain in spinal cord injury? A case report. (Abstract)

thermosensory deficits in the neuropathic pain area. However, topical application of capsaicin in the neuropathic pain area induced a burning pain sensation, a marked decrease in heat pain threshold and an increase in mechanical allodynia. Treatment with topical lidocaine patches (5%) led to considerable pain relief. These results indicate a functional connection between peripheral, spinal and supraspinal nociceptive pathways and that peripheral afferents may contribute to at-level neuropathic pain after

677. In vitro effects of local anaesthetics on the thromboelastographic profile of parturients. Full Text available with Trip Pro

In vitro effects of local anaesthetics on the thromboelastographic profile of parturients. Post-dural puncture headache can be an incapacitating complication of obstetric epidural analgesia/anaesthesia and early or prophylactic epidural blood patch (EBP) is one of the treatment options. Although local anaesthetic (LA) agents have been shown to have anticoagulation effects in vitro, peri-partum women are known to be hypercoagulable. We postulated that the presence of residual LA might not result (...) in impaired haemostasis of the EBP in parturients.Blood samples from 10 healthy term parturients were subjected to thromboelastography after the addition of four different LA (lidocaine, bupivacaine, levobupivacaine, and ropivacaine) preparations.There was a significant reduction in reaction (R) and coagulation (K) time (P<0.001, P<0.05) and an increase in alpha degrees angle (P<0.01) when comparing undiluted blood with the saline control group.

Flecainide, pilsicainide, and lidocaine reversibly blocked the peak amplitude of TTX-R Na(+) currents in a concentration-dependent manner with half-maximum inhibitory concentration values of 8.5 +/- 6.6 microM (n = 7), 78 +/- 6.9 microM (n = 7), and 73 +/- 6.8 microM (n = 7), respectively. Each drug shifted the inactivation curve for the TTX-R Na(+) currents in the hyperpolarizing direction (...) The effects of class Ic antiarrhythmics on tetrodotoxin-resistant Na+ currents in rat sensory neurons. IV or oral administration of antiarrhythmics has been reported to be effective for relieving neuropathic pain. Recent reports have indicated that tetrodotoxin-resistant (TTX-R) Na(+) channels play important roles in the nerve conduction of nociceptive sensation. In the present study, we investigated the effects of flecainide, pilsicainide (class Ic antiarrhythmics), and lidocaine (a class Ib
