Spinal anesthesia, is used during the transuretheral resection of the prostate. Low dose hyperbaric local anesthetics have been used to enhance the resolution of the spinal block. We compared the efficacy and duration of the spinal block with two different bupivacaine baricities.

- Group I: low dose isobaric group

- GroupII: Low dose hyperbaric group

Clinical Details

Official title: Low Dose, Low Concentration Different Baricity Bupivacaine for Transuretral Prostatectomy.

Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)

Primary outcome: Spinal Block Quality

Secondary outcome: Spinal block regression

Detailed description: Patients undergoing TURP were randomly allocated into two groups.

- Group I: Received fentanyl 20 µgr (0. 4ml),heavy bupivacaine 0. 5% (1. 5 ml)and normal

saline % 0. 9 NaCl ( 1. 1ml)

- Group II: Received fentanyl 20 Āµgr (0. 4 ml), plain bupivacaine 0. 5%(1. 5 ml) normal

saline 0. 9% NaCl (1. 1 mL) in total bupivacaine 0. 25% (3ml) intrathecally.

Onset and duration of the sensory block, the degree of the motor block, side - effects and

perioperative analgesic requirement assesed.


Minimum age: 50 Years. Maximum age: 85 Years. Gender(s): Male.
