Brief Summary:
To test the current standard of care (SOC) treatment for laparoscopic cholecystectomy with a group receiving SOC + additional perioperative analgesics in terms of postoperative abilities, PONV, pain and discharge time from the PACU

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Cholecystolithiasis Drug: Gabapentin Drug: S-ketamine Drug: Lidocaine Drug: Droperidol Phase 4

Detailed Description:

Aim of the study: to compare postoperative complaints (PONV, pain, etc) and PACU discharge time between two groups:

  • A: standard of care (SOC)receiving intraoperative dexamethasone, ondansetron, ketorolac, and general anaesthesia with propofol, remifentanil and cisatracurium
  • B: SOC + preoperative gabapentin, intraoperative lidocain infusion, s-ketamin and droperidol.

Primary endpoints:

  • postoperative abilities over time
  • discharge time from PACU according to fixed criteria
  • consumption of analgesics and antiemetics in the PACU

Secondary endpoints:

  • degree of nursing requirements at the PACU
  • General tolerability of the regimes
