NCT00472134
First received: May 10, 2007
Last updated: June 14, 2012
Last verified: January 2012
  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to determine the effects of a local anesthetic dispensed via a tiny catheter device, called the ON-Q PainBuster pump, placed during surgery on top of the mesh used in the laparoscopic repair of ventral hernias. The goals are:

  • reducing postoperative pain from this procedure
  • decreasing length of hospital stay
  • reducing or eliminating amount of post-operative narcotics used

Condition Intervention
Hernia, Ventral
Drug: bupivacaine
Device: On-Q PainBuster pump

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Prospective, Randomized, Double-blind Trial of Continuous Infusion of 0.5% Bupivacaine be Elastomeric Pump for Prospective Pain Management After Laparoscopic Ventral Hernia Repair.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Place an elastomeric infusion catheter superficial to the mesh at the conclusion of the laparoscopic ventral hernia repair and compare the following to a group that receives a placebo infusion of saline: [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Measuring: Visual Analog Pain Scale, Short-Form McGill Pain Questionnaire, Present Pain Intensity, Quantity of narcotic consumption [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Assess differences in postoperative pulmonary mechanics between the treated and nontreated groups by measuring the changes in maximal inspiratory volumes from baseline. [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • The return of bowel function: Day of Flatus, Tolerating Regular Diet, Length of hospital stay [ Time Frame: 1 week ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: A
randomized arm receiving bupivacaine via elastomeric pump
Drug: bupivacaine
administered locally, 0.5% Bupivacaine (Marcaine Abbott Laboratories) or saline administered continuously for 48 hours at 2 mL/h.
Other Name: Marcaine
Placebo Comparator: B
randomized arm receiving a placebo via elastomeric pump.
Device: On-Q PainBuster pump
