    The Minimally Invasive Thoracic Surgery Intercostal Nerve Block Trial is a single center, double-blind, randomized, active-comparator controlled clinical trial to assess the analgesic efficacy of intercostal nerve block by Liposomal Bupivacaine versus Standard Bupivacaine in subjects undergoing lung resection by robotic or video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery.

  • Peripheral Nerve Blocks for Major Lower Extremity Amputations

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    This study will be a double-blinded randomized controlled trial analyzing all patients who will undergo major lower extremity amputations by the vascular surgery service at UCSF Fresno between July 2017 and June 2018 to determine if regional nerve blocks (sciatic and femoral) have any effect on postoperative pain control, narcotic requirements, and length of stay compared with standard post-operative narcotic regimens.
