In the literature there is conflicting data on administration of local analgesia in addition to the general anesthesia to the trocar sites during laparoscopy, We believe that adding local analgesia to the general anesthesia during laparoscopy is beneficial . the current study will evaluate prospectivly the impact of local analgesia on postoperative pain and recovery in patients undergoing operative laparoscopy

Detailed Description:
Methods: this is a blinded prospective randomized study. After approval of IRB and informed consent 120 patients undergoing for laparoscopy will be randomized after the induction of general anesthesia into three groups: Group A will receive preemptive analgesia using 3-5 cc of 0,5 % marcaine at the beginning of the procedure. Group 2 will receive a local analgesia using 3-5 cc marcaine at the end of the procedure. Group 3 will be operated under general anesthesia only. The post operative pain and patient recovery will be assessed by the nurses during the hospitalization using a VAS (Visual Analog Scale) the total analgetic drugs will be noted and after the patients discharge the patient status and satisfaction will be evaluated by phone up to 2 wks
