Bupivacaine continues to be the most widely used local anesthetic for labor epidural analgesia
because it provides an excellent sensory block.

in lower limb orthopedic surgeries.
has been widely found to be the most effective method of pain relief, both at rest and on movement, after major surgical procedures (19,26-28).
Patient supplemented epidural analgesia
after major abdominal surgery with bupivacaine /fentanyl or ropivacaine /fentanyl.
No significant difference was found between local infiltration and epidural analgesia
(Figure 3A) (MD = -0.
