Comparison of Hemodynamic Effects between Unilateral Spinal Anaesthesia and Conventional Spinal Anaesthesia in Elderly for Trauma Hip
Compare, for traumatic hip surgery for elderly over 70years, unilateral spinal anesthesia (USA) and
conventional spinal anesthesia (SA) in terms of hemodynamic consequences. Prospective randomized single blind study.
70 patients aged over 70 years, whatever the ASA score, trauma proposed for hip surgery were randomized into 2 groups
SA and USA. Spinal anesthesia was performed with 7.5 mg of bupivacaine 0.5% hypobaric and fentanyl 25?g. Patients
were kept in lateral decubitus for 15 min (USA) and immediately turned supine (SA). Hemodynamic parameters and
characteristics of sensory block and motor block were collected. In results both groups were comparable regarding
surgical and demographic characteristics. The hemodynamic consequences were significantly lower in the USA group.
The onset times of maximum sensory block on the operated side were comparable between the two groups. The
regression time of sensory block on the side operated two metameres was faster in the RA group compared to the USA
group with a significant difference (p = 0.06). A bi lateralization was observed in 68% of cases. In concusion USA
compared to the SA for traumatic hip surgery in elderly patients over 70 years, can offer better hemodynamic stability
and provides the operated side sensory block of longer duration.
