Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Postoperative abilities over time
  • Discharge time from PACU according to fixed criteria
  • Consumption of analgesics and antiemetics in the PACU

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Degree of nursing requirements at the PACU
  • General tolerability of the regimes
  • Threshold for sensory perception and pain using the Pain Matcher device, pre- and postoperatively

Estimated Enrollment: 60
Study Start Date: October 2005
Detailed Description:

Aim of the study: to compare postoperative complaints (PONV, pain, etc) and PACU discharge time between two groups, for patients admitted for planned abdominal hysterectomy with or without BSO:

  • A: standard of care (SOC) receiving paracetamol, celecoxib, epidural analgesia, dexamethasone, ondansetron and droperidol, and general anaesthesia with propofol, remifentanil and cisatracurium
  • B: SOC with sham epidural analgesia, preoperative gabapentin, intraoperative lidocaine, s-ketamine and sufentanil
