Abstract (English)  :

BACKGROUND: Intrathecal injection of sufentanil offers labour pain relief of short duration. This double-blind randomised study evaluates if the combination of adenosine to sufentanil could give relevant prolongation (40%) of the duration of sufentanil spinal analgesia.
METHODS: Twenty-five healthy parturients requesting labour analgesia were included. Patients received 10 micro g of sufentanil + 500 micro g of adenosine or 10 micro g of sufentanil intrathecally. Pain intensity and duration of pain relief were assessed.
RESULTS: Pain relief was equal between groups. Duration of analgesia was not increased by adenosine + sufentanil, 99 +/- 54 min, vs. sufentanil, 89 +/- 56 min.
CONCLUSION: Adding 500 micro g of adenosine to 10 micro g of sufentanil could not provide any prolongation of labour pain relief.
