Continuous intravenous lidocaine in the treatment of paralytic ileus due to severe spinal cord injury.

Abstract

Paralytic ileus is a major concern in the acute phase of spinal cord injury. Classical treatment with neostigmine is often ineffective. Continuous intravenous (i.v.) lidocaine infusion has been previously proposed intra and post-operatively in order to decrease the duration of post-operative ileus after abdominal surgery. We report the cases of seven patients suffering from complete paralytic spinal cord injury-related ileus with colectasy resistant to neostigmine, who were treated by i.v. lidocaine infusion.
