Evaluation of Abdominal Wall Block With Liposomal Bupivacaine for Post-Operative Analgesia in Donor Nephrectomy
open to eligible people ages 18 years and up
A blinded randomized control trial in living kidney donors. The study group will receive a liposomal bupivacaine Trans Quadratus Lumborum (TQL) block after the induction of general anesthesia. The following study variables will be collected postoperatively following arrival in the post-anesthesia care unit. Current and maximum intensity pain scores will be documented by nurses in Electronic Health Record (EHR). Total opiate dose consumed every 24 hours will be collected from the EHR and pain diary after discharge. Patient satisfaction will be evaluated using the Revised American Pain Society Patient Outcome Questionnaire (APS-POQ-R) 24 hours' post-procedure. Incidence of nausea will be extracted from nursing notes.
