Levo-Bupivacaine vs. Ropivacaine for Post-Operative Pain Relief after Pre-Emptive Intraperitoneal Instillation in Laparoscopic Appendicectomy

Thiruselvi Subramaniam and Tan Ann Jee

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: October 26, 2019

Pain in the immediate postoperative period is found to be less after laparoscopic than after conventional surgical techniques. Ropivacaine is often in favour of Bupivacaine to avoid the risks of toxicity. Levo-bupivacaine, a safer version of bupivacaine is a contender to Ropivacaine.

This is a double blinded randomized placebo- controlled study c...
