Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Pain level [ Time Frame: For the first 72 hours following surgery ]
    Pain level will be evaluated every 4 hours from the time of surgery to discharge

  • Number of doses of analgesic drugs [ Time Frame: For the first 72 hours following surgery ]

Study Start Date: November 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2012
Estimated Primary Completion Date: November 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: combined anesthesia
Patients will receive spinal and general anesthesia for benign laparoscopy gynecological surgery
Procedure: Spinal anesthesia with Fentanyl+ Morphine
Fentanyl 15 microgram Morphine 0.1-0.5 mg
No Intervention: Control

Detailed Description:

Following signing an informed consent patients who are scheduled for gynecological laparoscopy surgery for benign disease will randomized to general vs. combined general and spinal anesthesia.

During the postoperative period data regarding pain level as evaluated by visual analogue scale (VAS), number of doses of pain relief drugs, satisfaction and number of day in hospitalization will be collected from patient charts.
