Pain Treatment After Total Knee Replacement - Continuous Epidural Versus Intravenous Patient Controlled Analgesia With Morphine

2014-07-23 21:46:41 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The study purpose is to compare the effectiveness of different methods for post-operative pain treatment after total knee replacement.

Description

Total knee replacement (TKR) is known to be one of the most painful surgical procedures. Many treatments have been used post TKR: IV opioids, epidural infusions, peripheral nerve blocks. No one method has been recognised as the best one.

In this study we will compare two well established methods of pain treatment:

1. continuous infusion of local anesthetics + opioids into the epidural space,

2. patient controlled analgesia with IV Morphine.

The study design is double blind.

Patients will have a combined spinal-epidural anesthesia for the operation and then will be connected to 2 different pumps, one to the epidural catheter and one to the intravenous catheter, for the first 24 hours post-operatively.

Pain scores, total analgesic medications other than study medications, adverse reactions to study medications, complications and patient satisfaction will be followed by blinded observers and compared between groups.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A narcotic analgesic that can be used for the relief of most types of moderate to severe pain, including postoperative pain and the pain of labor. Prolonged use may lead to dependence of the morphine type; withdrawal symptoms appear more rapidly than with morphine and are of shorter duration.

A nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agent with potent analgesic and antiarthritic properties. It has been shown to be effective in the treatment of OSTEOARTHRITIS; RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS; ankylosing SPONDYLITIS; and in the alleviation of postoperative pain (PAIN, POSTOPERATIVE).

Pain during the period after surgery.

A potent narcotic analgesic, abuse of which leads to habituation or addiction. It is primarily a mu-opioid agonist. Fentanyl is also used as an adjunct to general anesthetics, and as an anesthetic for induction and maintenance. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1078)

Abdominal symptoms after removal of the GALLBLADDER. The common postoperative symptoms are often the same as those present before the operation, such as COLIC, bloating, NAUSEA, and VOMITING. There is pain on palpation of the right upper quadrant and sometimes JAUNDICE. The term is often used, inaccurately, to describe such postoperative symptoms not due to gallbladder removal.
