KETOR: Effects of Peri Operative Administration of Ketamine on Long Term Post Thoracotomy Pain
Effects of Peri Operative Administration of Ketamine on Long Term Post Thoracotomy Pain

We assessed the effects of the N Methyl aspartate receptor antagonist Ketamine on long-term post thoracotomy pain. We hypothesized that ketamine could prevent supersensitization of the central nervous system involved in this chronic neuropathic pain.

In this clinical, randomized prospective study, peri operative administration of ketamine was compared to placebo on long term post thoracotomy pain after a 2 months follow up period.
