Id: NCT03226080

Organisation Name: Loyola University

Overal Status: Withdrawn

Start Date: July 19, 2017

Last Update: August 20, 2019

Lead Sponsor: Loyola University

Brief Summary: Surgical repair of hip fractures may be performed with various anesthetic techniques, but are most commonly completed under general anesthesia (GA) or neuraxial anesthesia (NA). Numerous prospective and retrospective studies demonstrate improved morbidity and mortality when NA is used; however, many surgeons prefer the use of GA with neuromuscular blockade (NMB) due to the perception of better operative conditions. This study aims to compare the operative conditions obtained from the use of combined GA and spinal with NMB vs. the use of GA with spinal without NMB. 84 patients will all receive a single shot spinal and GA and then will be randomized to receive either NMB or placebo. The fracture reduction time will be measured.

Conditions:
  • Hip Fractures
