INTRATHECAL 1% 2 CHLOROPROCAINE V/S 0.5% HYPERBARIC BUPIVACAINE IN AMBULATORY SURGERY
Keywords:2-chloroprocaine, Bupivacaine, Ambulatory surgery.
Background: This study was designed to compare 2-CP with bupivacaine for spinal anesthesia in an elective ambulatory setting.
Methods: A total of 100 patients were enrolled in this randomized double-blind study. Spinal anesthesia was achieved with 0.5% hyperbaric bupivacaine 5 mg (n = 50) or 2% preservative-free 2-CP 40 mg (n = 50).
Results -The average time to discharge readiness was 277.12 min in the 2-CP group and 353.11 min in the bupivacaine group, a difference of 76 min.
Conclusion: 2-chloroprocaine provides adequate duration and depth of surgical anesthesia for short procedures with the advantages of faster block resolution and earlier hospital discharge compared with spinal bupivacaine.
