Summary of "Comparison of Haemostatic Gelatin Sponge Impregnated with Ropivacaine versus Normal Saline applied on the Transverse Process of the Operated Vertebrae on Post-Operative Pain in Patients Undergoing Spinal Instrumentation Surgery: A Randomized Clinical Trial."

Protocols for effective postoperative pain control in patients undergoing spinal surgery are not standardized. In our study, we compared the effect of haemostatic absorbable gelatin sponge impregnated with ropivacaine versus normal saline when applied to the transverse process of the operated vertebrae on the postoperative pain following instrumentation spine surgery.
