Wound infiltration with liposomal bupivacaine vs. standard wound infiltration with bupivacaine in patient's undergoing open gynecologic surgery on an Enhanced Recovery Pathway: a single-blinded, randomized, controlled study
Bupivacaine is a drug that is traditionally given as an injection to numb surgical sites. Liposomes are molecules that are similar to fats. Sometimes drugs are combined with liposomes to make them able to stay in the body for longer periods of time. This has been done with bupivacaine to create liposomal bupivacaine. The goal of this clinical research study is to compare the effects of bupivacaine to those of liposomal bupivacaine when given to patients who are having gynecologic surgery. Researchers want to compare how long the drugs work to numb the wound and how long patients take to recover from surgery.
