Abstract
Background: Some of the most popular regional anesthetic procedures used for lower abdominal and limb surgery is epidural anaesthesia. A comparative analysis of bupivacaine (0.5%) and ropivacaine (0.75%) was performed for epidural anesthesia for the lower abdomen and limb surgeries to evaluate the effectiveness in regional anaesthesia.
Method:
The study involved the number of 60 patients ASA Grade I & II who were positioned on elective lower abdominal and lower extremity surgery. They were randomly split into two categories of 30 each. Group R earned 0.75 per cent ropivacaine at 15 ml, while Group B earned 0.5 per cent bupivacaine at 15 ml.
Following epidural block, sensory characteristics like onset, maximum level and the period of sensory blockade were studied. Starting, duration and degree of motor blockade were also studied. Hemodynamic parameters were monitored. Incidence of side effects were noted.
Result:
Demographic parameters in both groups were comparable. The start of the sensory block was slightly faster than bupivacane. The maximum level of sensory blockade in both was comparable.
The motor blockade period was less in Group B, although the motor blockade period was short in Group R. Hemodynamic parameters were similar in both groups with a proportional frequency of side effects in both groups.
Conclusion:
The initiation of sensory blockade for Bupivacaine was significantly earlier, for similar rates of sensory blockade. The Bupivacaine community had shorter motor block period, although the motor block pressure was lower with ropivacaine. We can therefore concluded that Ropivacaine may be effectively used for epidural anesthesia in lower abdominal and extremity surgery.

Key words: regional anesthetic, Demographic parameters, Bupivacaine
