  • Satisfactory pain control can generally be achieved after major surgery of the tibia through a combination of enteral and parenteral medications, neuraxial techniques (such as epidural analgesia), and/or regional techniques (such as sciatic and femoral nerve block). (
  • The parenteral opioid is often given by patient-controlled analgesia pump (PCA), with supplemental doses ordered for breakthrough pain. (
  • Background: Epidural anesthesia is the most commonly used technique for inducing surgical anesthesia and postoperative analgesia in patients undergoing lower limb surgeries. (
  • Her interests include animal welfare, pain recognition, anesthesia and analgesia. (
  • A caudal anesthesia is one of the most commonly used technique providing intra and postoperative analgesia in pediatric low abdominal surgery. (
  • Can postoperative analgesia be improved by the choice and timing of analgesics? (
  • Lenz H, Sandvik L, Qvigstad E, Bjerkelund CE, Raeder J: A comparison of intravenous oxycodone and intravenous morphine in patient-controlled postoperative analgesia after laparoscopic hysterectomy. (
  • This is not surprising given the variability across studies in factors such as surgical procedure, extent and nature of tissue damage, duration of surgery, pharmacokinetics of the agent(s) tested, and intraoperative and postoperative analgesia. (
  • however, postoperative pain control continues to be a problem despite evidence that efficacious analgesia improves patient satisfaction, reduces morbidity, and perhaps decreases mortality after surgery. (
  • Most research in postoperative pain has focused primarily on the use of opioids, opioid dose reduction by nonsteroidal antiinflammatory agents, preemptive analgesia, and regional analgesia. (
  • The mechanical sensitivity of a surgical incision is an important property because the efficacy of postoperative analgesic treatments should be assessed using evoked responses during function such as movement if outcome is to improve with enhanced analgesia. (
  • Postoperative Analgesia of Carprofen in Dogs. (
  • Carprofen administered prior surgery provided a better analgesia that carprofen administered after surgery in the first hour of postoperative immediate. (
  • Insufficient analgesia is associated with unwanted physiological and psychological side-effects, including increased sympathetic outflow, peripheral vascular resistance, myocardial oxygen consumption, production of carbon dioxide, hypercoagulability, decreased gastric motility, decreased immune function, and the subsequent development of chronic pain. (
  • The purpose of this study and review was to further evaluate the differences in efficacy in controlling immediate postoperative pain among the various routes of analgesia administration. (
  • There was a significant decrease in pain scores at the time of discharge in all three groups relative to the pain score at first request for analgesia. (
  • Our study suggests that although all the routes investigated (parenteral, neuraxial (intrathecal/epidural), and per os or per rectum (PO/PR)) promote significant pain relief on discharge from the PACU, the group that received neuraxial analgesia reported the lowest incidence of nausea and vomiting. (
  • Kehlet H, Holte K. Effect of postoperative analgesia on surgical outcome. (
  • Experimental studies show that there are sex-related differences in opioid analgesia, 1 but there are discrepancies between animal and human studies. (
  • The immediate postoperative period is associated with spontaneous pain and hyperalgesia, i.e., increased pain response (both intensity and duration) to normally painful stimuli following tissue injury or damage. (
  • The immediate postoperative period provides an interesting clinical model, mainly because the procedure of intravenous morphine titration enables precise control of doses of morphine to treat pain reported by the patient over a short period of time. (
  • The authors concluded that coadministration of NSAIDs and opioids reduced both postoperative opioid use and pain in children, but further research was needed to establish this finding due to potential publication bias. (
  • To evaluate the efficacy of using nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and opioids in the management of postoperative pain in children. (
  • 8 In June 2009, a parenteral formulation of ibuprofen (Caldolor) was approved for acute pain and can be used as monotherapy or in combination with opioids. (
  • The recently reported topline results from Study 306 in patients undergoing knee replacement surgery who received HTX-011 as part of a common multimodal analgesic regimen showed that patients maintained an average pain score in the mild range for 72 hours after surgery with only 25% receiving a prescription for opioids upon hospital discharge. (
  • Giving opioids to animals to quell pain after surgery prolongs pain for more than three weeks and primes specialized immune cells in the spinal cord to be more reactive to pain, according to a new study by CU Boulder. (
  • Opioids on top of surgery represent a "one-two" hit which creates an enduring state of inflammation and can lead to chronic pain. (
  • The researchers, acknowledging that animal studies cannot directly translate to humans, are now calling for more clinical studies on opioids and chronic pain. (
  • Watkins is also studying novel compounds that could be given with opioids to mute the exaggerated immune response they are believed to trigger, as well as alternative painkillers, including cannabinoids, for pain. (
  • There is surely a dark side in terms of addiction when it comes to opioids, but this is a very different idea-that we think we are treating the pain with these drugs and we may actually be prolonging it," she said. (
  • Because opioids, administered systemically or intraspinally, are the most common agents used to manage postoperative pain, the effects of intrathecal (IT) and subcutaneous (SC) morphine were examined on pain behaviors to further evaluate this model of postoperative pain. (
  • Farquhar-Smith P, Chapman S. Neuraxial (epidural and intrathecal) opioids for intractable pain. (
  • SEX-RELATED differences in the perception of pain and susceptibility to opioids remain a matter of debate. (
  • 2 An outstanding feature of the clinical use of opioids is the extraordinary variation in dose requirements for pain management. (
  • After CCD and de-CCD treatments, the animals exhibited behavioral and neurochemical signs of neuropathic pain manifested as mechanical allodynia and thermal hyperalgesia, DRG inflammation, DRG neuron hyperexcitability, induction of c-Fos, and the increased expression of PKCγ in the spinal cord as well as increased level of IL-1β and TNF-α in DRG and the spinal cord. (
  • 13 15 ] Rats with CCD or IVF inflammation at L4 and/or L5 exhibited measurable pain and hyperalgesia, and the affected DRG neurons became more excitable. (
  • 21, 24, 25 ] We have previously demonstrated the treatment effects of SMT as performed using the AAI (Activator-assisted spinal manipulative therapy [ASMT]) on pain and hyperalgesia produced by DRG inflammation using the IVF inflammation model in adult rats with outcomes being assessed through behavioral, electrophysiological, pathologic, molecular biological approaches. (
  • Inflammation or injury often lead to chronic pain states such as hyperalgesia where the perception of a normally painful stimulus is significantly exaggerated. (
  • It is characterized by increased responses to nociceptive stimuli (hyperalgesia), unpleasant and abnormal sensation (dysesthesia), and pain in responses to light tactile stimuli (allodynia). (
  • Lenz H, Raeder J, Draegni T, Heyerdahl F, Schmelz M, Stubhaug A: Modulation of remifentanil-induced postinfusion hyperalgesia by parecoxib or ketorolac in humans. (
  • Published as: Effects of COX inhibition on experimental pain and hyperalgesia during and after remifentanil infusion in humans. (
  • Central sensitization is expressed behaviorally as secondary hyperalgesia and contributes to prolonged postoperative pain. (
  • In animal models of pain, NMDA agonists induce central sensitization and hyperalgesia whereas antagonists decrease or prevent hyperalgesia. (
  • In humans, NMDA-receptor antagonism decreases secondary hyperalgesia subsequent to experimentally-induced pain. (
  • 2 ] In this model, a surgical incision causes reproducible, quantifiable mechanical hyperalgesia that parallels the postoperative course of patients. (
  • Thermal thresholds for cold and hot sensation and for pain (by limit method) were evaluated at the site of skin incision (primary-) and distantly (secondary hyperalgesia). (
  • Conclusions: Compared with placebo, DM enabled reduction of postoperative analgesics consumption, improved well-being, and reduced sedation, pain intensity and primary and secondary thermal hyperalgesia. (

  • The discussion focuses on the definition and measurement of expectation, the relationship between expectation and outcomes related to musculoskeletal pain conditions, the mechanisms through which expectation may alter musculoskeletal pain conditions, and suggested ways in which clinicians may integrate the current literature regarding expectation into clinical practice. (
  • After discharge, rescue analgesic consumption, pain scores (Parents Postoperative Pain Measurement, PPPM), and adverse effects were evaluated for 48h. (
  • Methods for assessment pain in veterinary are adaptations of scales used in human pain measurement. (
  • The primary aim of this prospective, randomized, double-blind, controlled trial was to evaluate the efficacy of periarticular injection with bupivacaine for reducing patient reported post-operative pain as assessed by morphine consumption via PCA. (
  • Minute sphere acupressure does not reduce postoperative pain or morphine consumption. (
  • Intraoperative music may decrease postoperative pain, and postoperative music therapy may reduce anxiety, pain and morphine consumption. (
  • Therefore, we decided to compare pain scores and postoperative morphine consumption in the postanesthesia care unit (PACU) between men and women. (
  • We tested the following hypotheses: (1) There are significant differences in postoperative pain perception and morphine consumption between men and women, and (2) these differences are modulated by aging. (
  • Postoperative pain is managed with intravenous (IV) narcotics using a patient controlled anesthesia (PCA) pump device. (
  • Our hypothesis is that the patients receiving the local anesthesia along their incision will have significantly less pain postoperatively and use less narcotic medications. (
  • Local anesthesia injected at the incision site fro reduced postoperative pain has been studied in other abdominal surgeries. (
  • Numerous other authors have demonstrated the effectiveness of using local anesthesia at incision sites for reducing pain postoperatively2-4. (
