Abstract
PURPOSE. This randomized, double-blinded, prospective study was performed to compare the intraoperative hemodynamic variables and the patient-reported outcomes, such as intra-and postoperative analgesia and patient satisfaction, of retrobulbar block, sub-Tenon block, and topical anesthesia during cataract surgery under monitored anesthesia care. METHODS. Eighty-one patients, ASA physical status I-III, undergoing elective cataract surgery under monitored anesthesia care, aged between 43 and 78 years, were randomly assigned to three groups: retrobulbar block (group R), sub-Tenon block (group S), or topical anesthesia (group T). Three minutes after the start of monitored anesthesia care with lidocaine-propofol-remifentanil mixture, an ophthalmologist performed regional anesthesia. Intraoperative hemodynamics, pain score, and patients` satisfaction with the anesthetic experiences were recorded by a study-blinded anesthesiologist. RESULTS. Mean arterial pressure and heart rate in group R were significantly higher than those in groups S and T during and just after the regional block (p<0.05). Group R required smaller dosage of patient controlled sedation and fewer supplemental bolus doses than groups S and T (p<0.05). On the other hand, group S showed the highest satisfaction scores among the three groups (p<0.05). CONCLUSIONS. Sub-Tenon block seems to be better than retrobulbar block and topical anesthesia in patient satisfaction though adequate analgesia was achieved after retrobulbar block during cataract surgery under monitored anesthesia care.
