Active Comparator: Ropivacaine group
Patients in this group will receive ropivacaine via the wound catheter for the first 48hrs after surgery
Device: Ropivacaine wound catheter
19 gauge fenestrated wound catheter inserted into the fascial planes of the surgical site prior to skin closure with a separate exit site.
Other Name: ON-Q Catheter
Placebo Comparator: Normal Saline Group
Will receive an infusion of normal saline for 48hrs post-operatively via the wound catheter.
Device: Saline wound catheter
19 gauge fenestrated wound catheter will be inserted into the fascial planes of the surgical site prior to wound closure
Other Name: ON-Q Catheter
- Morphine [ Time Frame: 48 hours ]Total amount of morphine used in the first 48hrs immediately after surgery
- FLACC Pain Intensity [Faces Legs Activity Cry Consolability] 0-10 Points [ Time Frame: 48 hours post-operatively ]
Observational FLACC pain intensity assessment tool that consists of observing the Faces Legs Activity Cry Consolability (FLACC) by the bedside nursing staff. This pain assessment tool is validated in non-verbal children and children at 7 years and younger.
Minimum value is 0 and the maximum value is 10, where 0 represents no pain which is a better outcome.
