Background: Selective unilateral spinal anesthesia is the gold standard spinal anesthesia technique for knee arthroscopy. Selective sensory spinal anesthesia has recently been validated for this surgery. Both selective techniques are specially indicated for ambulatory surgery because of PACU fast track, low discharge home time and high patient satisfaction. This study compares both spinal techniques for knee arthroscopy surgery. Read More

This randomized clinical trial studies minimally invasive surgery in treating patients with spinal tumors. Posterior spinal tumor resection and anterior and posterior spinal tumor resection are less invasive types of surgery for spinal tumors and may have fewer side effects and improve recovery Read More

The population of the US is aging. They remain more active and place greater demands on their musculoskeletal system. A key problem is that pain and disability of age related spinal disorders will increase. Problems such as Degenerative Lumbar Spondylolisthesis, Degenerative Disk Disease, Spinal Stenosis and Degenerative Scoliosis are age related problems that are treated with spinal fusion when non-operative treatment fails. Traditional open surgery poses ... Read More

The purpose of this study is to determine if there is a difference in patient outcomes with general anesthesia versus spinal anesthesia when given in addition to popliteal and adductor canal nerve blocks for foot and ankle surgery. Popliteal and adductor canal nerve blocks are injections of local anesthetic agents near nerves in the back and front of the knee going to the foot and ankle that provide numbness during and after surgery. These peripheral nerve ... Read More

Use of neuraxial agents in anesthesia for cardiac surgery is expanding. We have used combined general-spinal anesthesia for cardiac surgery for 12 years. We hypothesized that compared to general anesthesia, the combined techniques would provide comparable intraoperative hemodynamics and improved postoperative analgesia. This study subjected these techniques to a double-blind randomized trial. Read More

This study is looking at the effects of high spinal anesthesia (also known as total spinal anesthesia) combined with general anesthesia versus general anesthesia alone on the following: Stress response: Patients undergoing aortic valve replacement surgery have a large incision and a complex operation where they must be placed on the heart-lung machine. The body reacts to the heart-lung machine, increasing the stress response. High spinal anesthesia ... Read More

The studied pathology concerns post traumatic cervical spinal cord contusion on narrow spinal canal. The pathophysiology remains controversial. This pathology does not enjoy consensus support. Many questions remain regarding the surgical care and its delay. The purpose of the study was to demonstrate non-inferiority of early surgical treatment compared to the same surgery performed with a delay among patients identified as having a cervical spinal ...

Metastatic malignant tumors comprise the vast majority of spinal tumors in adults. The most devastating complication of spinal metastatic disease (SMD) is invasion of the spinal canal and compression of the spinal cord or the nerve roots of the cauda equina, resulting in a clinical entity known as cord compression that manifests with progressive loss of motor function and sensation in the legs, as well as bladder and bowel incontinence. The treatment of ... Read More

This study plans to learn more about preventing pain in children who are having posterior spinal fusion surgery using two different kinds of morphine (a pain medicine). Also, this study plans to learn about individual differences in the how the different kinds of morphine work in children. Subjects are being asked to be in this research study because they are having spinal fusion surgery, will have pain some of the time and will be getting morphine during ... Read More

This study aims to evaluate the incidence of longterm pain after spinal fusion surgery in children and adolescents. In the second part of the study a randomized double-blind clinical trial will be conducted. We compare the effect of pregabalin versus placebo on postoperative pain and oxycodone consumption. We will also be able to evaluate the effect of pregabalin on neurophysiological monitoring during surgery. Read More
