Clinical Trials: Anesthetics

Previous studies on animals suggest that inhalational anesthetics can reduce vascular tension in vitro resulting in vasodilation and decrease in blood pressure. This role for inhalational anesthetics has essential clinical implications such as the condition of sepsis or septic shock or other shock-associated states during which the blood vessel constricts strongly and leads to circulation dysfunction. The vasodilation property of these anesthetics including ... Read More

It is common for obstetric anesthesia using opioid supplement to local anesthetics for epidural labor pain control. Given the low doses of these epidural drugs, we never doubt the necessity of the supplement of opioid to lacal anesthetics during this process based on the concept that opioid addition can enhance and prolong the analgesic effect of local anesthetics. However, we unavoidably encounter many opioid-associated side effects during the labor ... Read More

Epidural local anesthetics are the gold standard for shortening duration of bowel dysfunction after bowel surgery. Previous studies suggest that their effect may be in part a result of actions of the local anesthetic outside the epidural space. If local anesthetics could be administered intravenously instead, this might be a safer, easier and less expensive approach. Therefore, this trial will compare the effect on bowel function recovery of intravenous ... Read More

This study aims to evaluate the attenuation of ischemic-reperfusion injury in the liver after sevoflurane preconditioning. In the presence of sevoflurane, an attenuation of liver injury is hypothesized (diminished increase of liver enzymes, reduced production of inflammatory mediators). Read More

Cognitive disorders in patients underwent general anesthesia are discussed for decades, but whether there were precise relationship between general anesthesia and dysgnosia is yet to be guaranteed. Although controversial data reported from experimental studies in animals, the investigators still proposed that general anesthetics could impair the normally organized system of the central nervous system, which finally displayed a dysfunction of cognition after ...

Living-donor kidney transplantation has been considered as the best treatment for patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Kidney donation from living donors has been performed widely under their noble humanity and a belief that donation would not harm the donor. Although the overall evidences proposed that living kidney donor have medical outcomes similar to those in general population, several reports have demonstrated the potential risks for ... Read More
