EFFECT OF INTRATHECAL MAGNESIUM SULPHATE AS AN ADJUANT TO BUPIVACAINE–FENTANYL IN PATIENTS UNDERGOING ELECTIVE LOWER ABDOMINAL SURGERIES– A RANDOMIZED DOUBLE BLINDED CONTROLLED TRIAL

Dr. S. Loganathan

Abstract :

 Background; Intrathecal administration of magnesium sulphate produces spinal anaesthesia that includes profound motor and sensory blockage without any permanent and untoward effects.

Aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of intrathecal magnesium sulphate as an adjuvant to bupivacaine–fentanyl in patients undergoing elective lower abdominal surgeries.

Materials and Methods; This randomized controlled trial conducted among 50 patients belongs to ASA I and II ,age ranged from 23–68 years, weighing 35–65 kg and height ranging from 150–168 cms. Patients were randomly allocated to two groups of 25 each GROUP S received 2ml 0.5% Bupivacaine(10mg) and 0.5 ml fentanyl (25 mcg)and 1 ml NS, GROUP M received 2ml 0.5% Bupivacaine and 0.5ml fentanyl (25mcg) and 1 ml MgSO4(50 mg).

Results; The age, sex, height, weight, were similar in both groups. There is no statistical difference between two groups in onset of sensory, motor blockade and duration of motor blockade. Duration of analgesia was prolonged in Group M when compared to Group S (P VALUE 0.083). P Value  <0.05 was considered significant.

Conclusion; In this study, it is inferred that intrathecal magnesium when added to Bupivacaine and Fentanyl prolonged period of analgesia without increasing the incidence of side effects in patients undergoing elective abdominal surgeries.
