Age as a constituent element or influence contributing to the production of a result. It may be applicable to the cause or the effect of a circumstance. It is used with human or animal concepts but should be differentiated from AGING, a physiological process, and TIME FACTORS which refers only to the passage of time.
The 5th and largest cranial nerve. The trigeminal nerve is a mixed motor and sensory nerve. The larger sensory part forms the ophthalmic, mandibular, and maxillary nerves which carry afferents sensitive to external or internal stimuli from the skin, muscles, and joints of the face and mouth and from the teeth. Most of these fibers originate from cells of the TRIGEMINAL GANGLION and project to the TRIGEMINAL NUCLEUS of the brain stem. The smaller motor part arises from the brain stem trigeminal motor nucleus and innervates the muscles of mastication.

Reduction of laparoscopic-induced hypothermia, postoperative pain and recovery room length of stay by pre-conditioning gas with the Insuflow device: a prospective randomized controlled multi-center study. (1/2502)

OBJECTIVE: To assess the efficacy and safety of Insuflow (Georgia BioMedical, Inc.) filter heater hydrator device in reducing the incidence, severity and extent of hypothermia, length of recovery room stay and postoperative pain at the time of laparoscopy. DESIGN: Prospective, randomized, blinded, controlled multi-center study. Patients underwent gynecologic procedures via laparoscopy; surgeons, anesthesiologists and recovery room personnel assessed the results. SETTING: Seven North American institutions. PATIENTS: Seventy-two women for safety evaluation and efficacy studies. INTERVENTIONS: Intraoperative pre-conditioning of laparoscopic gas with the Insuflow device (treatment) or standard raw gas (control) during laparoscopic surgery and postoperatively. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Incidence, severity and extent of hypothermia, postoperative pain perception and length of recovery room stay. RESULTS: The Insuflow group had significantly less intraoperative hypothermia, reduced length of recovery room stay and reduced postoperative pain. Pre-conditioning of laparoscopic gas by filtering heating and hydrating was well tolerated with no adverse effects. The safety profile of the Insuflow pre-conditioned gas showed significant benefits compared to currently used raw gas. CONCLUSIONS: Pre-conditioning laparoscopic gas by filtering heating and hydrating with the Insuflow device was significantly more effective than the currently used standard raw gas and was safe in reducing or eliminating laparoscopic-induced hypothermia, shortening recovery room length of stay and reducing postoperative pain.  (+info)

Primary and secondary hyperalgesia in a rat model for human postoperative pain. (2/2502)

BACKGROUND: Previously, the authors developed and characterized a rat model for postoperative pain to learn more about pain produced by incisions. In this study, the responses to heat and mechanical stimuli were evaluated directly on or adjacent to the incision and at varying distances from the incision. METHODS: Rats were anesthetized with halothane and incisions were made at different locations in the plantar aspect of the foot. The response frequency to a blunt mechanical stimulus, the withdrawal threshold to von Frey filaments (15-522 mN), and the withdrawal latency to radiant heat were measured. Rats were tested before surgery, 2 h later, and then daily through postoperative day 9. RESULTS: After plantar incision, persistent hyperalgesia was observed immediately adjacent to or directly on the incision to punctate and blunt mechanical stimuli, respectively. The withdrawal threshold to punctate stimuli applied 1 cm from the incision was decreased through postoperative day 1. In a transitional area, between the distant and adjacent sites, the withdrawal threshold was intermediate and the duration of hyperalgesia was transient. Heat hyperalgesia was persistent but present when the stimulus was applied to the site of injury but not to a distant site. CONCLUSION: Robust primary hyperalgesia to punctate and blunt mechanical stimuli was present. Hyperalgesia distant to the wound, or secondary hyperalgesia, occurred in response to punctate mechanical stimuli, was short-lived, and required greater forces. These results suggest that the most persistent pain behaviors in this model are largely primary hyperalgesia.  (+info)

Effects of aggressive early rehabilitation on the outcome of anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction with multi-strand semitendinosus tendon. (3/2502)

To evaluate the effects of aggressive early rehabilitation on the clinical outcome of anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction using semitendinosus (and gracilis) tendon, 103 of 110 consecutive patients who underwent ACL reconstruction using multistrand semitendinosus tendon (ST) or the central one-third of patellar tendon with bony attachments (BTB) were analyzed prospectively. Subjectively, the Lysholm score was not different among the groups. The Lachman test indicated a trend of less negative grade in the ST men's group than that in the BTB men's group. On the patellofemoral grinding test, only women patients of both groups showed pain, with less positive crepitation in the ST group than in the BTB group. KT measurements at manual maximum showed more patients with more than 5 mm differences in the ST group than in the BTB group. The results of this study suggest that aggressive early rehabilitation after the ACL reconstruction using the semitendinosus (and gracilis) tendon has more risk of residual laxity than with the BTB.  (+info)

The role of fibular length and the width of the ankle mortise in post-traumatic osteoarthrosis after malleolar fracture. (4/2502)

We assessed the role of fibular length and the width of the ankle mortise as risk factors in the occurrence of post-traumatic osteoarthritis of the ankle joint by comparison of radiographs of the affected and unaffected sides. A shortened fibular malleolus (P < 0.01), a wide ankle mortise (P < 0.01) and Weber type B fracture (P < 0.01) were significantly associated with the development of osteoarthrosis but an elongated fibular (P > 0.05) and a narrowing of the ankle mortise (P > 0.07) were not.  (+info)

The effect of using a tourniquet on the intensity of postoperative pain in forearm fractures. A randomized study in 32 surgically treated patients. (5/2502)

We have analysed the relationship between the intensity of postoperative pain and the use of a pneumatic tourniquet in procedures for operative fixation of fractures of the forearm. Thirty-two patients were divided randomly into two groups as a control (NT) and tourniquet (T). The pain scores in the NT group were significantly lower. Patients over the age of 30 had notably more pain than those younger after the use of a tourniquet. Avoidance of the tourniquet gave better postoperative analgesia in male patients and in those with comminuted fractures. When a tourniquet was used the best results were obtained if it was kept inflated for less than one hour.  (+info)

Morbidity and cost-effectiveness analysis of outpatient analgesia versus general anaesthesia for testicular sperm extraction in men with azoospermia due to defects in spermatogenesis. (6/2502)

The outcome and costs of testicular sperm extraction under outpatient local analgesia or general anaesthesia were compared in men with non-obstructive azoospermia. Nineteen consecutive patients were allocated to receive general anaesthesia, while the subsequent 21 consecutive patients received outpatient analgesia in the form of i.v. midazolam sedation, lignocaine spray, scrotal infiltration with local anaesthetic and spermatic cord block. Blood pressure, pulse rate and respiratory rate were determined. Sedation and testicular pain were assessed by subjective scoring. Both groups showed haemodynamic stability with little alteration in blood pressure, pulse rate and oxygen saturation. Toxic symptoms of local anaesthetic were not encountered in the outpatient group. No relationship was found between testicular size and the duration of the operation. The median postoperative pain intensity, sedation scores and analgesic requirements were significantly less in the outpatient group (P < 0.05). These advantages led to a shorter recovery time (P < 0.0001), 3-fold cheaper care and greater patient satisfaction (P < 0.0001) in the outpatient group.  (+info)

Postoperative analgesia and vomiting, with special reference to day-case surgery: a systematic review. (7/2502)

BACKGROUND: Day-case surgery is of great value to patients and the health service. It enables many more patients to be treated properly, and faster than before. Newer, less invasive, operative techniques will allow many more procedures to be carried out. There are many elements to successful day-case surgery. Two key components are the effectiveness of the control of pain after the operation, and the effectiveness of measures to minimise postoperative nausea and vomiting. OBJECTIVES: To enable those caring for patients undergoing day-case surgery to make the best choices for their patients and the health service, this review sought the highest quality evidence on: (1) the effectiveness of the control of pain after an operation; (2) the effectiveness of measures to minimise postoperative nausea and vomiting. METHODS: Full details of the search strategy are presented in the report. RESULTS - ANALGESIA: The systematic reviews of the literature explored whether different interventions work and, if they do work, how well they work. A number of conclusions can be drawn. RESULTS-ANALGESIA, INEFFECTIVE INTERVENTIONS: There is good evidence that some interventions are ineffective. They include: (1) transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation in acute postoperative pain; (2) the use of local injections of opioids at sites other than the knee joint; (3) the use of dihydrocodeine, 30 mg, in acute postoperative pain (it is no better than placebo). RESULTS-ANALGESIA, INTERVENTIONS OF DOUBTFUL VALUE: Some interventions may be effective but the size of the effect or the complication of undertaking them confers no measurable benefit over conventional methods. Such interventions include: (1) injecting morphine into the knee joint after surgery: there is a small analgesic benefit which may last for up to 24 hours but there is no clear evidence that the size of the benefit is of any clinical value; (2) manoeuvres to try and anticipate pain by using pre-emptive analgesia; these are no more effective than standard methods; (3) administering non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) by injection or per rectum in patients who can swallow; this appears to be no more effective than giving NSAIDs by mouth and, indeed, may do more harm than good; (4) administering codeine in single doses; this has poor analgesic efficacy. RESULTS-ANALGESIA, INTERVENTIONS OF PROVEN VALUE: These include a number of oral analgesics including (at standard doses): (1) dextropropoxyphene; (2) tramadol; (3) paracetamol; (4) ibuprofen; (5) diclofenac. Diclofenac and ibuprofen at standard doses give analgesia equivalent to that obtained with 10 mg of intramuscular morphine. Each will provide at least 50% pain relief from a single oral dose in patients with moderate or severe postoperative pain. Paracetamol and codeine combinations also appear to be highly effective, although there is little information on the standard doses used in the UK. The relative effectiveness of these analgesics is compared in an effectiveness 'ladder' which can inform prescribers making choices for individual patients, or planning day-case surgery. Dose-response relationships show that higher doses of ibuprofen may be particularly effective. Topical NSAIDs (applied to the skin) are effective in minor injuries and chronic pain but there is no obvious role for them in day-case surgery. RESULTS-POSTOPERATIVE NAUSEA AND VOMITING: The proportion of patients who may feel nauseated or vomit after surgery is very variable, despite similar operations and anaesthetic techniques. Systematic review can still lead to clear estimations of effectiveness of interventions. Whichever anti-emetic is used, the choice is often between prophylactic use (trying to prevent anyone vomiting) and treating those people who do feel nauseated or who may vomit. Systematic reviews of a number of different anti-emetics show clearly that none of the anti-emetics is sufficiently effective to be used for prophylaxis. (ABSTRACT TRUNCATE  (+info)

Effect of i.v. ketamine in combination with epidural bupivacaine or epidural morphine on postoperative pain and wound tenderness after renal surgery. (8/2502)

We studied 60 patients undergoing operation on the kidney with combined general and epidural anaesthesia, in a double-blind, randomized, controlled study. Patients were allocated to receive a preoperative bolus dose of ketamine 10 mg i.v., followed by an i.v. infusion of ketamine 10 mg h-1 for 48 h after operation, or placebo. During the first 24 h after surgery, all patients received 4 ml h-1 of epidural bupivacaine 2.5 mg ml-1. From 24 to 48 h after operation, patients received epidural morphine 0.2 mg h-1 preceded by a bolus dose of 2 mg. In addition, patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) with i.v. morphine (2.5 mg, lockout time 15 min) was offered from 0 to 48 h after operation. Patients who received ketamine felt significantly more sedated at 0-24 h, but not at 24-48 h after operation, compared with patients who received placebo (P = 0.002 and P = 0.127, respectively). There were no significant differences in pain (VAS) at rest, during mobilization or cough, PCA morphine consumption, sensory block to pinprick, pressure pain detection threshold assessed with an algometer, touch and pain detection thresholds assessed with von Frey hairs, peak flow or side effects other than sedation. The power of detecting a reduction in VAS scores of 20 mm in our study was 80% at the 5% significance level. We conclude that we were unable to demonstrate an (additive) analgesic or opioid sparing effect of ketamine 10 mg h-1 i.v. combined with epidural bupivacaine at 0-24 h, or epidural morphine at 24-48 h after renal surgery.  (+info)

Establishment of an acute pain management programme is considered essential to reduce the incidence and severity of postoperative pain experiences of surgical patients in surgical wards. Several quality assurance standards and practice guidelines on pain management for professionals involved in the treatment of pain have been presented. Assessment of pain, using accepted approaches, should be undertaken at regular intervals at rest, during movements and at an appropriate interval after any intervention. It is essential to document pain scores and also to include assessment of patient satisfaction with the postoperative pain management provided so that pain and its treatment is made clearly visible in the clinical setting. A program for acute pain management should also include assessment of the adherence to the accepted postoperative pain management standards over time within the organization.. ...
We evaluated the commonly prescribed analgesic buprenorphine in a postoperative pain model in rats, assessing acute postoperative pain relief, rebound hyperalgesia, and the long-term effects of postoperative opioid treatment on subsequent opioid exposure. Rats received surgery (paw incision under isoflurane anesthesia), sham surgery (anesthesia only), or neither and were treated postoperatively with 1 of several doses of subcutaneous buprenorphine. Pain sensitivity to noxious and nonnoxious mechanical stimuli at the site of injury (primary pain) was assessed at 1, 4, 24, and 72 h after surgery. Pain sensitivity at a site distal to the injury (secondary pain) was assessed at 24 and 72 h after surgery. Rats were tested for their sensitivity to the analgesic and locomotor effects of morphine 9 to 10 d after surgery. Buprenorphine at 0.05 mg/kg SC was determined to be the most effective; this dose induced isoalgesia during the acute postoperative period and the longest period of pain relief, and it ...

In this systematic review and meta-analysis of 33 studies, we identified nine preoperative predictors that were negatively associated with pain control after surgery: young age, female sex, smoking, history of depressive symptoms, history of anxiety symptoms, sleep difficulties, higher BMI, presence of preoperative pain and use of preoperative analgesia. The most well-studied predictors were female sex (number of studies, n=20), young age (n=14) and the presence of preoperative pain (n=13). The strongest negative prognostic factors were a history of sleeping difficulties (number of studies, n=2) and depression (n=8), which were independently associated with approximately twofold higher odds of poor postoperative pain control. Our findings are consistent with and extend the results of the previous systematic review by Ip et al.20 In addition to the predictors previously described, we identified six additional preoperative predictors of poor postoperative pain control.20. Previous reports have ...
Remote Ischemic PreConditioning (RIPC) will improve the postoperative pain experience in patients undergoing abdominal surgery. Although abdominal surgery can be a lifesaving procedure many people have a significant amount of postsurgical pain. Severe postsurgical pain may lead to chronic pain in some people. Remote Ischemic Preconditioning may reduce the amount of postsurgical pain. Remote ischemic preconditioning is done by inflating a balloon (very similar to a blood pressure cuff) on the leg until it blocks blood flow for a few minutes. The cuff is then deflated and blood flow resumes. The process is repeated up to three times. This procedure causes the body to increase its natural pain relief system that may help to decrease the amount of postsurgical pain ...
Pregabalin was introduced as an antiepileptic drug with analgesic anti-hyperalgesic and anxiolytic properties and was also used to treat neuropathic pain. In recent years it has been used as part of a multimodal management of acute postoperative pain after various types of surgery. We study the effect of pregabalin administered before cardiac surgery on acute and chronic postoperative pain. Post CABG syndrome is well known since 1980 and various analgesic methods have been used from time to time (opioids, regional analgesia, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). In our research patients will be divided into three groups. The control group will receive a placebo capsule before surgery. The second group will receive 75mg of pregabalin per os before surgery while the third will receive 150mg of pregabalin. After the surgery all patients will be connected to an intravenous PCA morphine pump for 48 hours. The postoperative pain will be assessed with the Visual Analogue Scale (0-10) every day. Total ...

This study revealed that preoperative pregabalin (150mg) exerted no effect on intraoperative remifentanil consumption, post-surgical pain, or consumption of fentanyl in PCA within 24 h of gastrectomy. Pregabalin-related adverse effects, such as dizziness, sedation, and dry mouth, did not differ between the two groups.. A nociceptive stimulus caused by tissue injury during surgery releases multiple inflammatory mediators and neurotransmitters, which leads to peripheral sensitization, and subsequently produces central sensitization through afferent input to the central nervous system[8]. Although the mechanisms underlying progression from acute to chronic pain is not completely understood, controlling acute postoperative pain is critical because it poses a risk of chronic pain [9]. Acute postoperative pain is recognized to have early inflammatory and late neuropathic constituents [10]; therefore, preventing chronic pain involves not only alleviating inflammatory pain but also addressing ...
Postoperative pain management has drawn greater attention from the medical community, as conventional opiate analgesics pose as risk factors for addiction. Yet effective and efficient analgesics are vital to postoperative pain management so as not to delay recovery after the surgery. At worst unbearable pain and discomfort could result in respiratory depression requiring mechanical ventilators. […]
BACKGROUND: Thirty-five Cochrane Reviews of randomised trials testing the analgesic efficacy of individual drug interventions in acute postoperative pain have been published. This overview brings together the results of all those reviews and assesses the reliability of available data. OBJECTIVES: To summarise data from all Cochrane Reviews that have assessed the effects of pharmaceutical interventions for acute pain in adults with at least moderate pain following surgery, who have been given a single dose of oral analgesic taken alone. METHODS: We identified systematic reviews in The Cochrane Library through a simple search strategy. All reviews were overseen by a single Review Group, had a standard title, and had as their primary outcome numbers of participants with at least 50% pain relief over four to six hours compared with placebo. For individual reviews we extracted the number needed to treat (NNT) for this outcome for each drug/dose combination, and also the percentage of participants achieving
Adverse events associated with single dose oral analgesics for acute postoperative pain in adults ‐ an overview of Cochrane reviews Stable (no update expected for reasons given in Whats new) answers are found in the Cochrane Abstracts powered by Unbound Medicine. Available for iPhone, iPad, Android, and Web.
The Particulars: Previous research found that postoperative pain management did not appear to improve from 1995 to 2002. Since that time, there has been greater attention on pain management in the hospital setting. These efforts have likely led to more encouraging outcomes, but data to confirm this assumption are lacking.. Data Breakdown: For a study, researchers compared the postoperative pain scores of more than 400 surgical inpatients with scores of patients who were involved in a study about 10 years ago. The proportion of patients reporting no pain and being satisfied with their pain medication was similar for both groups. However, the rate of moderate-to-extreme pain was 63% in the earlier study, compared with a 39% rate observed in the current study.. Take Home Pearl: The incidence of moderate-to-extreme postoperative pain appears to have decreased significantly in the last decade.. ...

Eufemia, 11, 00187 Rome, Italy.. Abstract: Background: Gabapentin and pregabalin inhibit Ca2+ currents via high-voltage-activated channels containing the α2δ-1 subunit, reducing neurotransmitter release and attenuating the postsynaptic excitability. They are antiepileptic drugs successfully used also for the chronic pain treatment. A large number of clinical trials indicate that gabapentin and pregabalin could be effective as postoperative analgesics. This systematic-narrative review aims to analyse the most recent evidences regarding the effect of gabapentinoids on postoperative pain treatment. Methods: Medline, The ...
BACKGROUND: Postoperative pain is a persistent problem after surgery and can delay recovery and develop into chronic pain. Better patient education has been proposed to improve pain management of patients. Serious games have not been previously developed to help patients to learn how to manage their postoperative pain.. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to describe the development of a computer-based game for surgical patients to learn about postoperative pain management and to evaluate the usability, user experience, and efficacy of the game.. METHODS: A computer game was developed by an interdisciplinary team following a structured approach. The usability, user experience, and efficacy of the game were evaluated using self-reported questionnaires (AttrakDiff2, Postoperative Pain Management Game Survey, Patient Knowledge About Postoperative Pain Management questionnaire), semi-structured interviews, and direct observation in one session with 20 participants recruited from the general public ...
Rifampin drug interaction as cause of intractable acute postoperative pain., Chengwei Zhang, Jaime Garzon-Serrano, Zhenxiang Pan, Jingping Wang
The experience of pain is a complex, multifaceted unpleasant sensory and emotional experience. Pain has been recognised as a global burden, and postoperative pain is one of the most common types. Postoperative pain is a complication of surgery, which, in turn, complicates recovery. Lack of appropriate postoperative analgesic management has a significant impact on clinical and economic outcomes. A multimodal approach, that incorporates different drugs and techniques, has been demonstrated as being the most effective way of reducing postoperative pain.
After surgery, pain is a natural. Managing and controlling that pain is crucial to your healing and recovery. More than 80% of patients report pain after surgery. While you should expect some pain after surgery, your physician will take proper precautions and every effort to lessen your pain.. Managing pain after surgery is the most effective way to ensure a healthy recovery. Having a postoperative pain management plan may help reduce the risk of developing complications. When your pain is properly managed, your quality of life will be restored, and important tasks like walking can be resumed normally. ...
Chronic post-surgical pain (CPSP) at the surgery site can occur in up to one out of five patients undergoing surgery - particularly in those with surgery of the chest wall, breast, total joint replacements and iliac crest bone harvest. It can, however, occur after any type of surgery including minor procedures.. This problem and possible management strategies for the non-pain specialist are now reviewed in a paper by my colleagues Saifee Rashiq and Bruce Dick from the University of Alberta, in a paper published in the Canadian Journal of Anaesthesiology.. The consequences of CPSP on the patients is severe with staggering economic implications and powerful negative effects on the quality of life. CPSP also places a a significant burden on chronic pain treatment services.. Increased incidence of CPSP is seen in associated with younger age, obesity and female sex as well as certain psychological characteristics (anxiety, depression, stress, and catastrophizing).. Other risk factors include, ...

Abstract Background Pain after surgery is not uncommon with 30% of patients reporting moderate to severe postoperative pain. Early identification of patients prone to postoperative pain may be a step forward towards individualized pain medicine providing a basis for improved clinical management through treatment strategies targeting relevant pain mechanisms in each patient. Assessment of pain processing by quantitative sensory testing (QST) prior to surgery has been proposed as a method to identify patients at risk for postoperative pain, although results have been conflicting. Since the last systematic review, several studies investigating the association between postoperative pain and more dynamic measures of pain processing like temporal summation of pain and conditioned pain modulation have been conducted. Objectives According to the PRISMA guidelines, the aim of this systematic review was to evaluate whether assessment of experimental pain processing including measures of central pain mechanisms

We are beginning to understand more about risk factors for chronic post-surgical pain. As well as the impact on quality of life for those affected, chronic pain is difficult and costly to treat, so understanding more about who is at risk of developing chronic pain after surgery is important as it may help in preventing the condition.. Certain groups of patients may be more at risk from pain after surgery than others. Women are more likely to experience chronic pain than men, although this is not always the case after surgery. Studies suggest women are more likely to report more severe acute postoperative pain, but the evidence for chronic pain is less certain.. Younger patients do seem to be at greater risk of chronic post-surgical pain than older patients - this has been found after many different operations. This finding might be explained by the fact that younger people are often more active and are working, thus having persistent pain could have a greater impact on their daily life compared ...
Lets flip the script for a second and look at opioid abuse from the perspective of the patient; more specifically, a patient who has just undergone some sort of operation. First and foremost, that patient is in pain. What will the doctors and nurses administer to numb the pain? Opioids, most likely. What will the doctor prescribe to make sure the patient can adequately manage his pain at home? Opioids, most likely. What will that patient increasingly rely on to get them through the day as pain-free as possible? Opioids, most likely.. Moral of the story: more often than not, patients dont know any better. All they know is that the opioids make them feel better, and they completely trust their health care professional to give them the adequate means to manage their postoperative pain. To make matters worse, regardless of the degree of opioids being administered to a patient, a recent study showed that most patients who undergo surgical procedures experience acute postoperative pain, but ...
The lack of antinociceptive efficacy of pregabalin on postoperative pain could be due to the incomplete suppression of pressure-evoked brain activation. It is speculated that incomplete postoperative pain relief observed in general could be due to residual or persistent activity of key pain nuclei s …
Organising Secretary-Dr Suneet Kathuria said that Management of postoperative pain relieves suffering and leads to earlier mobilisation, shortened hospital stay, reduced hospital costs, and increased patient satisfaction. Pain control regimens should be tailored to the needs of the individual patient, taking into account medical, psychological, and physical conditions including age, level of fear or anxiety, surgical procedure, personal preference and response to agents given ...

ABSTRACT Objective: Prevention and treatment of postoperative pain and operation complications such as nausea and vomiting are most important concerns in postoperative care. There are several mechanisms involved in postoperative pain. Gabapentin is a gamma aminobutyric acid analogue that is known as an anticonvulsant drug. This drug is tolerated well and has known effects on
A 39 year old woman, scheduled for elective caesarean section in her second pregnancy, developed thrombocytopenia. Therefore, at the time of surgery, spinal anaesthesia and non-steroidal analgesic drugs were avoided and she was given a standard general anaesthetic procedure including fentanyl 100μg and morphine 10mg. In the early postoperative period she received tramadol 100mg and a further 10mg of morphine. These drugs did not control her pain, but caused side effects - in particular nausea and retching. Acupuncture to LI4 and PC6 on the right side produced dramatic pain relief within minutes. ...

New combinations of postoperative pain treatment decreased both pain and the use of narcotic pain relievers according to two studies presented this week at the 2013 Clinical Congress of the American College of Surgeons ...
The aim of this article is to present a concept of multimodal pain management. Pain causes discomfort and suffering that requires the proper steps to be monitored and treated However, in traditional Thai culture, it was believed that post-operative pain was an inevitable symptom which everyone had to be patient and wait until the pain subsided. Nowadays, the concept of pain management has been changed. Pain is a very important symptom that should be concerned and properly managed to promote a patients quality of life, prevent complications, and reduce the length of stay in the hospital. In a multimodal pain managing approach, multiple drug use, integrated with other non-pharmacology treatments, is one of the most preferable protocols for effectively managing pain and reducing unpleasant side effects. A goal setting for postoperative pain, a non-pharmacological approach would be a patient managing their expectations for the pain through setting individual goals for the pain management process. ...
Conclusions: In this study, we demonstrated that going beyond conventional one-time measurements of acute pain by modelling pain trajectories may substantially enhance research on pain chronification in two ways: First, pain trajectories bear great potential to improve the prediction of CPSP. Second, they represent a meaningful link between psychosocial vulnerability and CPSP because they can be used to uncover mechanisms by which psychosocial vulnerability unfolds. The reported findings suggest that the incidence of CPSP may be reduced by optimizing post-operative pain monitoring. ...
The University of North Carolina at Charlotte, NC, USA.. Although the elderly compose a significant percentage of the surgical patient population, postoperative pain management for this population has received little attention.1 According to 1990 data, more than 4,000 documents are published annually about pain, but fewer than 1% focus on pain in the older adult.2 Lack of published information and research about geriatric pain results in most patients pain being managed by trial and error.. Considerable evidence suggests that pain is undertreated in older patients. This may be due in part to the misconception that pain sensation diminishes with increasing age or that the elderly patient cannot tolerate narcotic analgesia.3 The perception that older adults have less pain sensitivity than do younger patients is influenced somewhat by the silent myocardial infarctions and emergent painless intra-abdominal surgical events that frequently occur in older adults.4 The research involving pain ...
Acute pain, the pain felt at the moment of injury, results from activation of the nociceptive sensory endings in the affected tissues. This direct nociceptive activation is usually gone within minutes after withdrawal of the noxious stimulus, but the resulting pain often lasts much lon ger-from hours to days. In surgery the nociceptive input (indirect) continues in the presence of extensive chemically sensitized traumatized tissues. In the case of third-molar surgery, this nociception may last for many hours, long after the local anesthetic used for the surgery has worn off. Very often the offset of the local anesthetic coincides with the peak release of important pain mediators such as prostaglandins and bradykinin.. The pain that lasts hours to days after surgery is not a direct result of the initial impact but a later development of a series of changes in the peripheral tissues themselves and the associated trigeminal nucleus (*Generic Tegretol controlling certain types of seizures and ...
Elderly patients with hip fracture experience high morbidity and mortality, and are often undertreated for pain. Acute pain management in the elderly is challenging, with physiological frailty, medical comorbidities and cognitive impairment commonly compounding pain assessment and treatment. Guidelines outlining current best practice for acute pain management in the elderly now exist, but evidence suggests that practice remains variable and there continues to be scope for improvement. We conducted a narrative review of the literature to examine the challenges of acute pain management in the elderly, and to evaluate evidence for the role of regional nerve blocks for acute pain associated with hip fracture in the elderly ...
The rate of individuals undergoing lumbar surgery in the CPRD-HES linked data doubled over the 15-year study period, fiscal years 1997/1998 to 2011/2012, from 2.5 to 4.9 per 10 000 adults. Over the most recent 5-year period (2007/2008 to 2011/2012), on average 20.8% (95% CI 19.7% to 21.9%) of lumbar surgery patients met criteria for PPP. Rates of healthcare usage were significantly higher for patients with PPP across all types of care. Over 2 years following initial spine surgery, the mean cost difference between patients with and without PPP was £5383 (95% CI £4872 to £5916). Over 5 and 10 years following initial spine surgery, the mean cost difference between patients with and without PPP increased to £10 195 (95% CI £8726 to £11 669) and £14 318 (95% CI £8386 to £19 771), respectively. Extrapolated to the UK population, we estimate that nearly 5000 adults experience PPP after spine surgery annually, with each new cohort costing the UK National Health Service in excess of £70 million ...

Finding alternative strategies for pain relief after TKA is imperative, as improved postoperative pain management is linked to improved patient satisfaction, faster rehabilitation, and reduced complications.. Dr. Ya Deau and colleagues enrolled 160 patients undergoing TKA into the study and randomized them into a duloxetine or placebo group. Patients took 60 mg of oral duloxetine or placebo once daily for 14 days after surgery and answered questions on postoperative days one, two, seven, 14, six weeks, and 90 days. Postoperative pain management also included acetaminophen, ketorolac, meloxicam, and oxycodone as needed.. The researchers collected data on numerical rating scale (NRS) scores for pain management, opioid consumption, patient satisfaction, and questions based on the Brief Pain Inventory.. Duloxetine was found to be better than placebo for reducing opioid use and was of equal efficacy to placebo for reducing pain. Duloxetine was also better than placebo for patient satisfaction and for ...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether cognitive therapy prior to total knee replacement can prevent the development of persistent post-surgical pain.
PREVENA™ Incision Management System Shown to Reduce Incisional Pain & Associated Narcotic Use Among Obese Study Patients Undergoing Cesarean Delivery
Abstract. Background: This study was investigated the effects of dexmedetomidine in combination with fentanyl-based intravenous patient-controlled analgesia (IV-PCA) on pain attenuation in patients undergoing open gastrectomy in comparison with conventional thoracic epidural patient-controlled analgesia (E-PCA) and IV-PCA.. Methods: One hundred seventy-one patients who planned open gastrectomy were randomly distributed into one of the 3 groups: conventional thoracic E-PCA (E-PCA group, n = 57), dexmedetomidine in combination with fentanyl-based IV-PCA (dIV-PCA group, n = 57), or fentanyl-based IV-PCA only (IV-PCA group, n = 57). The primary outcome was the postoperative pain intensity (numerical rating scale) at 3 hours after surgery, and the secondary outcomes were the number of bolus deliveries and bolus attempts, and the number of patients who required additional rescue analgesics. Mean blood pressure, heart rate, and adverse effects were evaluated as well.. Results: One hundred fifty-three ...
BACKGROUND Children with microtia complain of severe postoperative pain during early postoperative days after rib cartilage harvest for auricular reconstruction. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of preventive donor site wound analgesia by intercostal nerve block (ICNB) and catheter-based infusion of local analgesics on postoperative pain after rib cartilage graft for auricular reconstruction in children with microtia. METHODS In this prospective randomized study, 66 children underwent postoperative pain control using either preventive ICNB followed by catheter-based infusion (33 patients, study group) or intravenous (IV) analgesia alone (33 patients, control group). ICNB was performed under direct vision by the surgeon by injecting 0.5% bupivacaine into each of the three intercostal spaces before perichondrial dissection. Catheters were placed in three subchondral spaces before wound closure, and 0.5% bupivacaine was infused every 12 h for 48 h postoperatively. Pain degrees were

National surveys continue to document the undertreatment of acute postoperative pain, despite the availability of evidence-based, clinical practice guidelines and the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations standards. This article surveys factors that contribute to persistent gaps during the acute pain management process, including deficiencies in providing continuous analgesia, disparities in access to medical care, the acute pain medicine culture itself, a lack of adequate pain assessment, health care provider biases, and limited health care resources. The role of technology in increasing patients control over their own pain management and narrowing these gaps is discussed. Patient-controlled analgesia delivery systems are an example of such technology, and they play a key role in improving the quality of acute pain management and increasing the patients involvement in this process. However, the use of these systems may be limited because of the amount of health care resources
BACKGROUND: Nefopam is a centrally-acting but non-opioid analgesic drug of the benzoxazocine chemical class, developed in the early 1970s. It is widely used, mainly in European countries, for the relief of moderate to severe pain as an alternative to opioid analgesic drugs, and used in rheumatic disease and other musculoskeletal disorders in the UK. This review sought to evaluate the efficacy and safety of oral nefopam in acute postoperative pain, using clinical studies of patients with established pain, and with outcomes measured primarily over 6 hours using standard methods. This type of study has been used for many decades to establish that drugs have analgesic properties. OBJECTIVES: To assess the efficacy of single dose oral nefopam in acute postoperative pain, and any associated adverse events. SEARCH STRATEGY: We searched CENTRAL (Issue 2, 2009), MEDLINE (1966 to May 2009); EMBASE via Ovid (1980 to May 2009); the Oxford Pain Relief Database (1950 to 1994); and reference lists of studies found.
Aim: To assess the effectiveness of combined preincisional local infiltration (at trocar sites) and intraperitoneal instillation of levobupivacaine 0.25% for the management of early postoperative pain following laparoscopic ovarian drilling.. Materials and Methods: This is a prospective randomized controlled observer-blinded study. The study included 106 infertile patients with the diagnosis of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) who were scheduled to undergo diagnostic laparoscopy and laparoscopic ovarian drilling (LOD) during the period from November 2009 to February 2012 at TAIBA Hospital in Kuwait. Patients were randomly allocated to two groups of 53 patients each. Group I comprised patients who received preincisional local infiltration and intraperitoneal instillation levobupivacaine 0.25%. Patients in group II received equal volumes of normal saline 0.9% (NS) at the same sites. The primary outcome measures were visual analog scale pain scores and postoperative analgesic consumption.. Results: ...
Acute pain in post joint replacement surgeries is common, which makes the management of acute pain following joint replacement surgeries to be very important. Thus, this study was conducted to evaluate acute pain management of post TKR surgeries. Patients with negative pain management index (PMI) scores were classified as receiving inadequate analgesic treatment for their pain. Zero PMI was the most frequent score among the others with 195 (80.6%). The rest were − 1 (11 (4.5%)), 1 (27 (11.2%)), and 2 (9 (3.7%)), respectively. Only 4.5% (11/242) patients have negative PMI score, which could be considered as inadequate pain management in which these patients received inadequate analgesic treatment. Acute pain management in post-TKR surgeries in both medical centers achieved an acceptable level, and majority of patients received an adequate analgesia in post-TKR surgeries.
Background: Vibrio fluvialis is an emerging zoonotic pathogen that its antibiotic-resistant strains are rapidly expanding. Discovering new antibacterial agents is one way to control it.Aims and Objectives: In this research, inhibitory potentials of glycine, magnesium oxide nanoparticles (NPs), and some synthesized thiazole, imidazolidine-2-thione, and tetrahydropyrimidine-2-thione derivatives were studied against V. 﫿uvialis in an in vitro manner.Materials and Methods: Thiazoles were prepared through Hantzsch reaction. Cyclic thioureas were synthesized from the reaction of diaminoalkanes and carbon disulfde. MgO NPs were created in 23.7-25.7nm by sol-gel processing. Antibacterial properties of all compounds as inhibition zone diameter, the minimum inhibitory concentration, and the minimum bactericidal concentration values were assessed through both disk diffusion and broth microdilution methods.Results: No inhibitory activity on V. 﫿uvialis was observed with MgO NPs and glycine. Among ...
Fifty-two reports were identified in the original review as possible randomised trials which assessed dihydrocodeine in postoperative pain. Four reports met the inclusion criteria; all assessed oral dihydrocodeine. Three reports (194 participants) compared dihydrocodeine with placebo and one (120 participants) compared dihydrocodeine (30 mg or 60 mg) with ibuprofen 400 mg. For a single dose of dihydrocodeine 30 mg in moderate to severe postoperative pain the NNT for at least 50% pain relief was 8.1 (95% confidence interval 4.1 to 540) when compared with placebo over a period of four to six hours. Pooled data showed significantly more participants to have reported adverse effects with dihydrocodeine 30 mg than with placebo. When compared to ibuprofen 400 mg both dihydrocodeine 30 mg and 60 mg were significantly inferior. No additional studies were found for this update ...

The outcomes measured to assessing pain were a 10 cm visual analog scale (VAS) and the dose of paracetamol + codeine administrated postoperatively. The wound ...
Global postoperative pain management market anticipated to witness significant growth in the near future, owing to increasing adoption of opioids and analgesics for relief from post-surgery pain
Published in Anesth Analg. 2014 Jun;118(6):1370-7. Authors: Hanson NA et al. BACKGROUND:. Adductor canal blocks have shown promise in reducing postoperative pain in total knee arthroplasty patients. No randomized, controlled studies, however, evaluate the opioid-sparing benefits of a continuous 0.2% ropivacaine infusion at the adductor canal. We hypothesized that a continuous adductor canal block would decrease postoperative opioid consumption.. METHODS:. Eighty subjects presenting for primary unilateral total knee arthroplasty were randomized to receive either a continuous ultrasound-guided adductor canal block with 0.2% ropivacaine or a sham catheter. All subjects received a preoperative single-injection femoral nerve block with spinal anesthesia as is standard of care at our institution. Cumulative IV morphine consumption 48 hours after surgery was evaluated with analysis of covariance, adjusted for baseline characteristics. Secondary outcomes included resting pain scores (numeric rating ...

The International Association for the Study of Pain has referred to pain as the fifth vital sign, and acute pain management after surgery has been shown to be a key factor in quality of recovery. In addition, the establishment of pain management benchmarks by the Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations more than a decade ago has resulted in a greater awareness of patients right to optimal pain control by health care practitioners and administrators. Postoperative pain control has become a priority for hospitals across the United States.. Optimization of postoperative pain management has been demonstrated through the implementation of protocols that include multimodal analgesic regimens, surgical-specific treatment pathways, implementation of a 24-hour anesthesiology pain service, and pain-specific training for physicians and nurses involved in postoperative care.1 Importantly, pain as assessed by the numeric rating scale (NRS), for which 0 = no pain and 10 = maximal ...
Millions of procedures, surgical and non-surgical, are performed around the world each year. Management of perioperative pain is of great importance to patients, and a critical management issue for physicians and other health professionals who provide perioperative care. Healthcare facilities and national accrediting organizations have established standards surrounding proper management of perioperative pain.
Patient-Controlled Analgesia Pumps Patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) is a type of pain management that lets you decide when you will get a dose of pain medicine. In some situations, PCA may be a better way of providing pain relief than calling for someone (typically a nurse) to give you pain medicine. With PCA you dont need to wait for a nurse. And you can get smaller doses of pain medicine more often. With this type of pain treatment, a needle attached to an IV (intravenous) line is placed into 1 of ...

An epidural catheter was used to provide perioperative analgesia as part of a multimodal balanced anaesthesia and analgesia in a mare undergoing a bilateral mastectomy. Despite development of severe hypoxaemia during anaesthesia, recovery from anaesthesia was uneventful. Oral administration of a NSAID combined with administration of xylazine and morphine by an epidural catheter resulted in adequate postoperative pain relief, based on assessment of physiological parameters and behaviour. Neither complications nor side effects were observed during hospitalisation. ...
Assessments for the onset of sensory and motor block were performed every 2 min for 20 min by two trained observers working simultaneously and commencing from the time of completion of injection of the total dose of anesthetic for sciatic block. In most cases, both observers had the same assessment, and in cases wherein those assessments were different, the average values of the data were used. Sensory block assessments were performed in the distributions of the superficial peroneal nerve, deep peroneal nerve, posterior tibial nerve, and sural nerve. A three-level scale was used to grade the intensity of sensory block using pinprick stimulation: 0 = normal sensation (pin prick felt as sharp); 1 = blunt sensation (pin prick felt but not sharp); and 2 = no sensation (pin prick not felt at all). Motor block intensity of the foot was graded on a four-level scale: 0 = full movement (no discernible weakness); 1 = decreased movement (moves foot); 2 = diminished movement (moves toes only); and 3 = no ...

A 2010 randomized, controlled trial by Loftus and colleagues assessed pain controlled and the opioid-sparing effect of using IV ketamine as compared with placebo in 102 opioid-dependent or opioid-tolerant patients after major back surgery.14 The total opioid dose after 24 and 48 hours and at a 6-week follow-up visit was significantly reduced in the ketamine group in comparison with the placebo group. However, other studies assessing postoperative pain control with ketamine in a similar population demonstrated little to no benefit.15-17 The lack of benefit may reflect the low number of patients included in the trials. Despite these negative studies, guidelines suggest that ketamine may be beneficial in this population even if it only provides minimal pain control.10. A 2011 systematic review by Laskowski and colleagues analyzed 47 double-blind, randomized trials that compared IV ketamine to placebo for adjunctive postoperative pain management.18 They concluded that across all studies, patients ...
These results from our Phase II trial evaluating IV meloxicam for the management of moderate to severe pain following abdominal hysterectomy surgery highlight IV meloxicams analgesic effect, coupled with a favorable safety and tolerability profile, in a soft tissue surgical model, said Stewart McCallum, M.D., Chief Medical Officer of Recro Pharma. Additionally, these data provide supportive evidence suggesting IV meloxicams ability to reduce the need for rescue opioid consumption, a critical need in todays postoperative pain treatment landscape.. The Phase II, multi-center, randomized, double-blind, placebo- and active (morphine)-controlled trial (n=486) was designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of five dose groups (5mg, 7.5mg, 15mg, 30mg and 60mg) of IV meloxicam for the management of moderate to severe pain following open abdominal hysterectomy. The co-primary efficacy endpoints were the summed pain intensity difference (SPID) over the first 24 hours post-dose (SPID24) and the sum ...
Our data offer little encouragement to those who wish to improve cardiac outcome after PVS by providing postoperative epidural analgesia. Within the epidural group, 40% received 3 mg in 10 ml epidural morphine during surgery. Generally, a second bolus was given immediately before catheter removal at 24 h after surgery. Therefore, epidural analgesia would have been expected to be in the range of 36-48 h. This is well into the period when poor cardiac outcome becomes evident. The myocardial infarction rate for the epidural morphine group was 4.9% versus 3.6% and 3.7%, respectively, for the patients who received general or spinal, both with postoperative parenteral opioids. As we pointed out in our discussion of these results, patients undergoing lower extremity PVS probably do not experience the same intensity of postoperative pain as do patients undergoing other types of surgery, such as intraabdominal procedures. Any beneficial effects of postoperative epidural analgesia may, therefore, be ...
Nineteen pediatric patients aged 6 months to 12 years scheduled for elective upper extremity surgery were randomly assigned to receive either a parascalene block or sham injection. Both groups received a potent inhalational agent for operative anesthesia. At completion of surgery, the treatment group received an injection of 0.5 ml/kg 0.25% bupivacaine with 1:200,000 epinephrine into the brachial plexus via the parascalene approach with the aid of a nerve stimulator; the control group received a subcutaneous needle puncture only. Patients in the parascalene group had superior postoperative analgesia, as evidenced by significantly less opioid requirement in the first 12 postoperative hours and by significantly lower scores on an objective pain scale. We found the parascalene approach to the brachial plexus a simple and reliable analgesic technique in anesthetized children. ...
In view of the side effects of opioids, especially respiratory depression, altered mental status, and reduced bowel function, regional analgesia utilizing neuraxial and peripheral nerve blocks offer significant advantages. The lack of a universally reliable pain assessment tool (analgesiometer) in the critically ill contributes to the dilemma of adequate analgesia. Many patients in the critical care unit are not able to communicate or use a conventional visual or numeric analog scale to quantify pain. Alternative assessment tools derived from pediatric16-18 or geriatric19 practice that rely on grimacing and other physiologic responses to painful stimuli might be useful, but have been inadequately studied in the intensive care unit (ICU). Changes in heart rate and blood pressure in response to nursing activities, dressing changes, or wound care can also serve as indirect measurements of pain,20 and sedation scores like the Ramsey or Riker and colleagues21,22 scale might be helpful, although not ...

Dear editor, We would like to give a response to the letter of Dr. Anshuman Sinha concerning our article 23 Gauge versus 20 Gauge System for Pars Plana Vitrectomy: A Prospective Randomized Clinical Trial. For analysis of postoperative pain we used a simplified verbal rating scale (ranging from 0, meaning no pain, to 3, meaning severe pain). The standardized verbal rating scale reaches from 0 (no pain) to 10 (the worst pain possible), which we think is too extensive for our patients and purpose. In literature verbal rating scales are described to be a valid, reliable and appropriate tool for determination of postoperative pain in clinical practice [1,2] Furthermore we believe that the assessment of postoperative pain is not likely to be biased if the assessor is not masked, because the perception of pain is a completely subjective parameter. Regarding the sample size evaluation: The effect size was assumed to be 75% of the standard deviation and the power to be 80%. These assumptions were ...
Most surgical patients have a personal level of pain. Certain procedures are available for reducing postoperative pain (PoP). Prayer is one of the valuable methods that favour patient relaxation and reduce PoP; it is especially valuable because it neither causes additional tasks for hospitals, nor raises financial issues for patients. Purpose of this study was evaluation of the effect of prayer on PoP reduction in gastrointestinal surgical patients. Methods: In this clinical trial we selected 108 patients who were candidates for gastrointestinal elective surgery. Patients were randomly divided into two groups: the case group (n=54), who relied on analgesic plus prayer, and the control group (n=54), who relied on analgesic alone. Case group patients performed a specific prayer, starting 6hrs before surgery began and continuing until 24hrs after the operation. Vital signs, anxiety and PoP intensity were evaluated at 3, 12 and 24hrs after surgery. Applying SPSS, data were analysed utilizing the ...
OBJECTIVES. To evaluate the clinical efficacy of carprofen like perioperative analgesic in dogs when is used alone or combined with opioids. MATERIALS. Sixty dogs which need general anaesthesia for various diagnostic or therapeutic reasons were included in this study. Thirty of them were anesthetized with morphine (0,2 mg/kg IM),propofol(3 mg/kg IV) and isoflurane. The others were anesthetized with the same protocol but carprofen (4 mg/kg IV) was administered 30 minutes before induction. Some cardiovascular and respiratory variables were studied every 5 minutes during the procedure. Recovery times and perioperative pain control were also evaluated.. RESULTS. Carprofen reduced anaesthetic requirements. Intraoperative pain control was best achieved when it was used combined with morphine. Cardiovascular stability was best in the carprofen-morphine group. But the respiratory depression was higher. All cardiorespiratory variables were within normal values. Postoperative analgesia was better with ...

  • Over the past two decades, pain assessment and management in children has greatly improved due in part to the development of age-specific pain assessment tools and a better understanding of the role of analgesics in this population. (
  • 1 These misconceptions include the belief that children do not perceive pain the same way as adults, and some clinicians may believe that analgesics are associated with an increased incidence of toxicity in this population. (
  • Nonopioid analgesics, including nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and acetaminophen, play an important role as first-line agents in the management of mild-to-moderate pain in children. (
  • An update on analgesics for the management of acute postoperative dental pain. (
  • Gabapentin 250 mg is statistically superior to placebo in the treatment of established acute postoperative pain, but the NNT of 11 for at least 50% pain relief over 6 hours with gabapentin 250 mg is of limited clinical value and inferior to commonly used analgesics. (
  • To assess the efficacy and safety of single dose oral gabapentin compared with placebo in established acute postoperative pain using methods that permit comparison with other analgesics. (
  • Despite the focus on meeting standards of care in the area of pain management, there was an extraordinary lack of patient reassessment by nurses after the administration of analgesics. (
  • 2 Opioid analgesics are often used to manage postoperative pain but are associated with a high incidence of adverse effects (AEs) such as nausea, vomiting, constipation, oversedation, and respiratory depression. (
  • Despite the availability of clinical practice guidelines, effective analgesics and new technologies for drug administration, the management of postoperative pain continues to remain problematic and unsatisfactory. (

  • This module discusses why postoperative pain requires treatment, outlines methods for performing an assessment of pain, provides strategies for using patient-controlled analgesia, and summarizes the use of opioid and non-opioid analgesics in the postoperative setting. (
  • Postoperative pain management has drawn greater attention from the medical community, as conventional opiate analgesics pose as risk factors for addiction. (
  • Yet effective and efficient analgesics are vital to postoperative pain management so as not to delay recovery after the surgery. (
  • 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. (
  • 2 A thorough understanding of the assessment techniques and therapeutic interventions utilized for postoperative analgesia will allow the pharmacist to play an integral role in the management of the pediatric patient. (
  • NSAIDs, in particular, have proven to be a popular method for analgesia in the postoperative setting. (
  • The 89 female and 42 male patients were then asked to fill in diary cards recording pain levels, based on a visual analogue scale from zero to 100, and note any analgesia use. (
  • Treatment for post-operative pain includes analgesia and anesthetics. (
  • A key consideration is clear recognition of the difference between regional anesthesia that is performed as the primary surgical anesthetic as opposed to that which is intended primarily to provide postoperative analgesia. (
  • For example, if a femoral nerve block is placed prior to knee surgery to provide prolonged postoperative analgesia, then a general, spinal or epidural anesthetic would have to be used for the actual knee surgery rather than simply monitored anesthesia care (MAC), the regional block alone or I.V. sedation to properly report the regional block separately. (
  • In this setting, if the patient was provided a block and only sedation was added, then it would be clear that the femoral block was the primary anesthetic rather than a mode of postoperative analgesia. (
  • Multimodal analgesia is based on the combined use of multiple medications or techniques for pain control, which have different mechanisms of action or act on different sites at the pain pathways. (
  • An 'Established Pain Response' has been described to occur in neonates who have undergone procedures such as circumcision & heel lancing without anesthesia or analgesia. (

  • Secondary objectives are Numerical Rating Scale (NRS) pain scores in the first 24 post-operative hours, opioid analgesia use intra-operatively and in the first 24 post-operative hours, block procedural time and patient discomfort during block insertion. (
  • These tests evaluate inhibitory and excitatory mechanisms of pain processing and are here utilized to evaluate endogenous analgesia at different time-points during pregnancy and the peripartum period to help reveal individual s risk for persistent pain. (
  • Erector spinae plane (ESP) block has been shown to be effective in managing post mastectomy pain.Dai et al showed the effectiveness of dexmedetomidine in prolonging the duration of sensory block, motor block and analgesia when dexmedetomidine as an adjunct is added to ropivacaine in brachial plexus block (1). (
  • IV administration of opioids has not been shown to be superior compared with oral administration for postoperative analgesia. (
  • We found that, across different surgeries and institutions, pain relief equivalent to the best available postoperative analgesia was achieved. (
  • Because total pain relief and pain intensity differences summary measures carry forward the final value before rescue analgesia, sensitivity would be lost if assessments continued until all patients requested escape analgesia. (
  • and colleagues reported initial data from an ongoing multicenter, open-label, ascending-dose study in which 22 patients aged 12 to 17 years received single oral doses of oxymorphone immediate-release 5 mg or 10 mg following discontinuation of postoperative parenteral analgesia. (

  • A new study finds that patients with knee osteoarthritis who rely on prescription opioids for pain relief prior to undergoing total knee replacement (TKR) surgery tend to have worse postoperative pain outcomes compared to patients who do not take opioids. (
  • Researchers at Brigham and Women's Hospital evaluated pain relief associated with TKR surgery and found that patients who had been taking opioids to help manage pain prior to surgery experienced less pain relief after TKR surgery and had higher pain catastrophizing - the degree of an exaggerated, negative response to pain. (
  • Although prior research has shown that using opioids preoperatively is associated with poor pain outcomes, these studies had limited sample sizes and pain catastrophizing was not considered. (
  • They used sophisticated analytic methods to compare the change in the WOMAC pain score six months after knee surgery and establish the difference between patients who had and those who had not used opioids before TKR. (
  • The findings show that patients who used opioids before going into surgery had about nine percent less pain reduction at six months following surgery. (
  • Clinicians and policy makers should consider limiting the use of opioids prior to TKR to optimize post-TKR pain relief. (
  • We thought you could potentially put pain drugs or anesthetics in the film if you just sew it in as you're stitching the person up, then you wouldn't necessarily have to prescribe any opioids. (
  • Postoperative pain is often treated with powerful pain-killing medications called opioids. (
  • Because of the risks associated with opioids, newer treatments for postoperative pain have started to focus on using nonopioid painkillers and treating only the area around the site of the surgery. (

  • HTX-011 was designated by the FDA as a Breakthrough Therapy for postoperative pain management and has the potential to be an important new pain management option for patients, which has been shown in Phase 3 clinical trials to significantly reduce postoperative pain, including severe pain, and to significantly reduce the need for opioids," said Barry Quart, Pharm.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of Heron. (
  • 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. (
  • Oral administration of opioids is generally considered superior for the management of pain postoperatively in patients who can tolerate the oral route. (
  • Although postoperative pain is ceaseless for the first 24 hours, long-acting oral opioids are generally not recommended due to a need for dose titration and lack of evidence supporting superiority when compared with short-acting oral opioids. (
  • When it comes to perioperative pain control, there are new ways to tackle patient discomfort without resorting to prescription opioids. (
  • More than 70 million patients per year are prescribed opioids for postoperative pain, and one in 15 will go on to long-term use and abuse," explains Dr. Szlyk. (
  • In an era where many studies have shown that patients do better after surgery with use of lesser amounts of opioid pain medication, this can be particularly challenging in those patients who have taken a significant amount of pain medication before surgery. (

  • Patients' pain and anxiety were measured before, during, and after the surgery. (
  • Results showed that the hypnosis group reported significantly lower levels of pain and anxiety before and after the surgery. (
  • The hypnosis group also required less pain medication following the surgery and their vital statistics were more consistent during the surgery. (
  • This study shows that hypnosis is a highly effective form of reducing pain and anxiety for people undergoing surgery. (
  • This also leads to improved recovery after the surgery due to less anxiety and pain associated with the procedure. (
  • We conducted a prospective double-blind randomized study assessing bupivacaine end-of-surgery wound infiltration for pain relief in thyroid surgery. (

  • Some patients also receive a retrobulbar injection of local anesthesia (bupivicaine) at the conclusion of surgery in order to decrease postoperative pain and discomfort. (
  • It has been our observation that when the local anesthesia is combined with a steroid (triamcinolone acetonide) in a retrobulbar injection at the conclusion of surgery, patients tend to be pain free for longer intervals then when local anesthesia is used alone. (
  • Perceived advantages over traditional surgery include fewer complications, minimal post procedural pain and faster recovery times. (
