The effect of atropine in preventing catheter-related pain and discomfort in patients undergoing transurethral resection due to bladder tumor; prospective randomized, controlled study.

Conclusions: Atropine is a cheap, easy-to-access, safe-to-use drug for reducing CRBD symptoms, without any observed adverse effects. Since it not only reduces CRBD symptoms but also has a positive effect on postoperative pain, it can be used safely to increase patient comfort in patients receiving general anesthesia and a urinary catheter.

The objectives of the study were to compare post-anesthesia care unit opioid use and pain scores, surgical and hospitalization times, and perioperative adverse events rates following robotic sacrocolpopexy (RSC) versus transvaginal uterosacral ligament suspension (USLS). This was a retrospective analysis of women 18  years and older who underwent either robotic sacrocolpopexy (n = 87) or transvaginal uterosacral ligament suspension (n = 103) between January 1, 2015 to December 31, 2017 at Downey Medical Center by two surgeons. Data including nurses’ verbal pain scores and opioid use w...

Authors: Cheon YW, Kim SH, Paek JH, Kim JA, Lee YK, Min JH, Cho HR Abstract Background: Patients who undergo urinary catheterization may experience postoperative catheter-related bladder discomfort (CRBD). Previous studies have indicated that drugs with antimuscarinic effects could reduce the incidence and severity of CRBD. Accordingly, this study was carried out to investigate whether nefopam, a centrally acting analgesic with concomitant antimuscarinic effect, reduces the incidence and severity of CRBD. Methods: Sixty patients with American Society of Anesthesiologists physical status I and II and aged 18-70 ...

EPIDURAL ANESTHESIA is cited as the most effective and least harmful method of pain relief to both mothers and babies during labor, and mothers requesting epidural anesthesia have increased to greater than 60% of vaginal deliveries.1 Nurses must assess and monitor for common side effects from epidural anesthesia, including decreased sense of bladder fullness, urinary retention, and decreased ability to ambulate to the restroom.1 To combat these challenges, urinary catheterization has become routine.

Authors: Poletajew S, Bender S, Pudełko P, Łykowski M, Piecha T, Sutkowski B, Radziszewski P Abstract INTRODUCTION: Standard intra-urethral instillation of anaesthetic gel may not sufficiently exclude pain perception during cystoscopy. AIM: To evaluate the impact of the anaesthesia within the posterior urethra on pain intensity related to cystoscopy in men. MATERIAL AND METHODS: One hundred and twenty-seven men undergoing cystoscopy were prospectively enrolled in the study. Patients were randomly assigned to the experimental or control group (66 vs. 61 patients). Intra-urethral instillation of 2% lidocain...

In this study, we will enroll male patients undergoing elective prostate surgery with urinary catheterization under general anesthesia, and we will compare the efficacy of pudendal nerve block (PNB) and intravenous tramadol in CRBD prevention.Methods/designThis trial is a prospective, randomized controlled trial that will test the superiority of bilateral PNB with 0.33 % ropivacaine compared with intravenous tramadol 1.5 mg/kg for CRBD prevention. A total of 94 male patients undergoing elective prostate surgery with urinary catheterization after anesthesia induction will be randomized to receive either bilateral PNB with 0...

Authors: Srivastava VK, Nigam R, Agrawal S, Kumar S, Rambhad S, Kanaskar J Abstract BACKGROUND: Urinary catheterization during surgical interventions causes postoperative catheter-related bladder discomfort (CRBD). Antimuscarinic agents are the mainstay of treatment for overactive bladder (OAB). As the symptoms of CRBD mimic to OAB, so we designed this study to assess the efficacy of solifenacin and darifenacin for prevention of CRBD. METHODS: Ninety patients of either sex undergoing elective spine surgery and requiring urinary catheterization were randomly assigned into three groups to receive oral solifenacin...
