Possible Interaction: Epinephrine and Ropivacaine



Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

Ropivacaine with epinephrine injection for postoperative analgesia is not recommended for this patient population.
Archives of otolaryngology--head & neck surgery  •  2004  |  View Paper
We conclude that epinephrine improves the pain relief and reduces the side effects of a thoracic epidural infusion of ropivacaine and fentanyl after major thoracic or upper abdominal surgery.

Epinephrine may be a useful additive for reducing the risk of systemic toxicity when large doses of ropivacaine are given epidurally.
UNLABELLED The addition of epinephrine to ropivacaine has not been recommended because ropivacaine has intrinsic vasoconstrictor properties.
We conclude that the addition of epinephrine 5 microg/mL to ropivacaine reduced the early systemic plasma concentrations of ropivacaine after epidural injection and may be useful for decreasing the risk of toxicity from systemic absorption of epidural ropivacaine.

Ropivacaine plain had a significantly shorter duration of pulpal anesthesia than ropivacaine with epinephrine.

CONCLUSION The combination of ropivacaine and adrenaline did not accentuate but instead diminished the vasoconstrictive effect of epinephrine.

The addition of epinephrine to ropivacaine decreases maternal plasma concentrations after one h of epidural infusion but also increases motor block.
International journal of obstetric anesthesia  •  2002  |  View Paper
CONCLUSION The addition of epinephrine to ropivacaine improves the safety and quality of epidural anesthesia when administered by gravity flow via the Hustead needle for cesarean sections.

CONCLUSION Using ropivacaine with epinephrine additive in digits could improve the intra-, and postoperative terms.

The addition of 5 mug/ml epinephrine to ropivacaine significantly delays its systemic absorption and reduces the peak plasma concentration.
Anesthesiology  •  2005  |  View Paper
Ropivacaine with epinephrine significantly decreased labial blood flow.
The addition of epinephrine to ropivacaine increased ropivacaine concentrations in the palatal mucosa and adjacent maxilla by more than 3 times that of plain ropivacaine at 20 minutes.
This study suggests that 10 μg/mL epinephrine added to 0.5% ropivacaine could improve anesthetic efficacy and duration for maxillary infiltration anesthesia over plain ropivacaine.
We investigated the hypothesis that the addition of epinephrine would affect the pharmacokinetics of ropivacaine by retaining ropivacaine in the mucosa of the injected area through the time-dependent distribution of ropivacaine in the rat maxilla and serum following maxillary infiltration anesthesia using (3)H-labeled ropivacaine.
