Sufenta (Sufentanil Citrate) - Summary



SUFENTA (sufentanil citrate) is a potent opioid analgesic.

SUFENTA (sufentanil citrate) is indicated for intravenous administration in adults and pediatric patients:

as an analgesic adjunct in the maintenance of balanced general anesthesia in patients who are intubated and ventilated.

as a primary anesthetic agent for the induction and maintenance of anesthesia with 100% oxygen in patients undergoing major surgical procedures, in patients who are intubated and ventilated, such as cardiovascular surgery or neurosurgical procedures in the sitting position, to provide favorable myocardial and cerebral oxygen balance or when extended postoperative ventilation is anticipated.

SUFENTA (sufentanil citrate) is indicated for epidural administration as an analgesic combined with low dose bupivacaine, usually 12.5 mg per administration, during labor and vaginal delivery.

A dose-finding study of sufentanil sublingual microtablets for the management of postoperative bunionectomy pain. [2014]
less frequent administration and avoid the setup of a drug delivery system... CONCLUSION: The SSM 30 µg may be an effective, noninvasive alternative to health

The effect of sufentanil administration on remifentanil-based anaesthesia during laparoscopic gynaecological surgery: a double-blind randomized controlled trial. [2014]
This study assessed the effect of sufentanil administered before conclusion of remifentanil-based anaesthesia on postoperative hyperalgesia and haemodynamic stability in patients undergoing laparoscopic gynaecological surgery. The patients were randomly allocated to a sufentanil administration group (S group) or a normal saline administration group (C group)...

Pharmacokinetics of sublingual sufentanil tablets and efficacy and safety in the management of postoperative pain. [2013]
postoperative pain management... CONCLUSIONS: Sufentanil formulated as a sublingual solid dosage form provides a

Addition of clonidine to a continuous patient-controlled epidural infusion of low-concentration levobupivacaine plus sufentanil in primiparous women during labour. [2011.09]
We studied the potentiation of analgesia for labour by the addition of clonidine to epidural low-concentration levobupivacaine with sufentanil in a randomised, double-blinded study. We enrolled primiparous women who were in spontaneous labour...

Comparison of intrathecal bupivacaine and ropivacaine with different doses of sufentanil. [2011.07]
BACKGROUND: Spinal bupivacaine produces a complete anaesthetic block of a longer duration than ropivacaine, which leads to a potentially increased risk of failure. A combination of sufentanil to ropivacaine may improve the block's reliability... CONCLUSION: Plain bupivacaine 10 mg has a longer recovery profile than the same dose of ropivacaine with or without sufentanil. (c) 2011 The Authors.

Clinical Trials Related to Sufenta (Sufentanil)

Study of Cisatracurium and Sufentanil Consumption Using a Closed Loop Computer Control Infusion System [Recruiting]

Effect of Sufentanil on the Rate of Anesthesia [Completed]
The aim of this study was to compare the effects of Lidocaine/epinephrine with and without Sufentanil on the rate of anesthesia after supplemental intraligamentary injection (PDL) in teeth with irreversible pulpitis.

Remifentanil Versus Sufentanil for Intubation Condition Without Myorelaxant [Recruiting]
The main objective is the comparison of intubation conditions after anesthetic induction bolus of propofol-sufentanil when compared to injection of propofol-remifentanil in patients undergoing surgery for tooth extraction. Intubation without myorelaxant with propofol and sufentanil is classic but less efficient than induction with curare on achieving perfect intubation conditions. The use of a protocol without curare is sometimes justified for short gestures or when you want to avoid allergia. Remifentanil often provides excellent intubation conditions without myorelaxant. However, remifentanil was never compared to sufentanil in terms of intubating conditions without muscle relaxant.

Remifentanil/Sufentanil for CABG+/-AVR Evaluated by Recovery, Cognitive Function, Haemodynamics and Biochemical Markers. [Completed]
To evaluate the effect on cognitive function, recovery, cardioprotection and haemodynamics of standard Remifentanil anaesthesia to standard Sufentanil anaesthesia in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass with or without aortic valve replacement.
