Postoperative pain may be affected by general anaesthetics. The effect of propofol and sevoflurane on postoperative pain in chinese female patients has not been demonstrated before. This study compared the postoperative pain score in patients under general anaesthesia maintained with propofol,sevoflurane, or sevoflurane+propofol.
After approval from the Institute's Ethics Committee, this study was conducted at Tongji Hospital, a general university teaching hospital with 2500 beds in Wuhan, China.The study consisted of female patients, American Society of Anaesthesiologists Physical Status (ASA-PS) I or II, suffering from infertilities, and undergoing selective gynaecological laparoscopic and hysteroscopic surgery. All the patients were randomly assigned to receive propofol,sevoflurane,or sevoflurane+propofol for anaesthesia maintenance. The primary outcome measure was the level of postoperative pain assessed by Numerical Analogue Scale (NAS) at rest 0.5 hour after the operation. The secondary outcomes were postoperative pain assessed by Numerical Analogue Scale (NAS) at rest 1 and 24 hour after the operation, the incidence of postoperative nausea and vomiting, the incidence of shiver, and quality of recovery determined by QOR40 in the first 24 h after surgery.

An intravenous anesthetic agent which has the advantage of a very rapid onset after infusion or bolus injection plus a very short recovery period of a couple of minutes. (From Smith and Reynard, Textbook of Pharmacology, 1992, 1st ed, p206). Propofol has been used as ANTICONVULSANTS and ANTIEMETICS.
Rare and often fatal drug complication which affects patients undergoing long-term treatment with high doses of PROPOFOL. It is characterized by METABOLIC ACIDOSIS; HYPERLIPIDEMIA; RHABDOMYOLYSIS; cardiovascular CIRCULATORY COLLAPSE; CARDIAC FAILURE; and KIDNEY FAILURE.
Surgical procedures conducted with the aid of computers. This is most frequently used in orthopedic and laparoscopic surgery for implant placement and instrument guidance. Image-guided surgery interactively combines prior CT scans or MRI images with real-time video.
Procedures that avoid use of open invasive surgery in favor of closed or local surgery. These generally involve use of laparoscopic devices and remote-control manipulation of instruments with indirect observation of the surgical field through an endoscope or similar device. With the reduced trauma associated with minimally invasive surgery, long hospital stays may be reduced with increased rates of short stay or day surgery.
