Comparison of Intraoperative and Postoperative Outcome between Intrathecal Ropivacaine and Ropivacaine with Dexmedetomedine for Lower Limb Surgeries- A Prospective, Randomized, Double Blind Study
Dexmedetomedine is a popular adjuvant used intrathecally as it provides good quality of intraoperative and postoperative analgesia with minimal side effects in addition to stable hemodynamic conditions. The aim of this study was to compare the hemodynamic, sensory and analgesic potentiating effects of intrathecally administered dexmedetomedine as an adjunct to ropivacaine and plain ropivacaine.
