Ropivacaine (0.75%) @ 1 mg/kg BW was administered epidurally at the lumbosacral space in group 1 whereas, the animals of group 2 were given fentanyl @ 2 g/kg BW in combination with ropivacaine hydrochloride (1 mg/kg BW).
Est., M Caves Rd., (East), Mumbai-400093) @ 1 mg/kg BW was epidurally administered in the lumbosacral space in group 1 whereas, the animals of group 2 were given fentanyl citrate (Trofentanyl - Troikaa Pharmaceuticals Ltd.Thol-382 728, Gujrat, India) @ 2 g/kg BW in combination with ropivacaine hydrochloride (1 mg/kg BW).
Comparison of two doses of ropivacaine hydrochloride for lumbosacral epidural anaesthesia in goats undergoing laparoscopy assisted embryo transfer.
Group R--Injection ropivacaine hydrochloride
20 mL, 0.25%.
Ropivacaine hydrochloride, a long acting amide local anaesthetic agent , is well tolerated in human beings, reduces the potential for central nervous system and cardiac toxicities, and also lowers the propensity for motor blockade .
In goats of group I, ropivacaine hydrochloride (Ropin 0.5%, Neon Laboratories, India) was injected at 1.0 mg/kg body weight.
Ropivacaine hydrochloride is four times more potent than lignocaine .
Local anesthesia was performed with lidocaine and ropivacaine hydrochloride
while midazolam, fentanyl citrate and propofol drips were used for sedation.

GROUP II--Received 20 ml (0.2%) ropivacaine hydrochloride
CONCLUSION: The randomized comparative clinical study of Brachial plexus block with local anesthetics Ropivacaine hydrochloride
(0.75%), with and without Dexmedetomidine has revealed that addition of Dexmedetomidine (50gg) to local anesthetic Ropivacaine provided early onset as well as complete blockade of sensory and motor nerves and prolonged duration of analgesia in comparison to other group so Dexmedetomidine group appeared to be better than the other group.
