Brief Summary:
This study addresses the focus areas of Post-Operative Pain Management. We propose a randomized, triple-blind, placebo-controlled trial to investigate the efficacy of a systemic infusion of intravenous lidocaine as a non-opioid method of post-operative pain management following postoperative spinal fusion for adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS). The outcomes assessed will be (1) the effect of intravenous lidocaine on post-operative opioid consumption, both in-hospital and at three-month follow-up, (2) the effect of intravenous lidocaine on the immunophenotype expressed following surgery, and (3) the effect of intravenous lidocaine on recovery from surgery as assessed by the Patient Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System-Computer Adaptive Tests for Pain Interference (PI) and Mobility (M) (PROMIS-CAT). Thus, we propose a study of a non-opioid method of pain control to minimize opioid consumption in-hospital and at three-months postoperatively, with primary outcomes measures that include morphine-equivalent opioid consumption and PROMIS-Mobility to assess recovery. In addition, we will test the ability of systemic lidocaine to attenuate the systemic inflammatory response to major spine surgery. The immunologic response to surgery has been associated with rehabilitation and recovery following total hip arthroplasty and this study will provide data to support further work.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Systemic Lidocaine Improves Pain Control After Surgery by Attenuating the Systemic Inflammatory Response to Surgery Drug: IV lidocaine Drug: Placebos Phase 4

Detailed Description:
a Phase IV, randomized, triple-blind, placebo-controlled trial with two study groups: postoperative standard of care with opioid patient controlled analgesia (PCA) and IV lidocaine infusion versus postoperative standard of care plus normal saline placebo. Block randomization into one of the two groups will be based on a random table generated using an R-program. Group 1 (Study) will receive intravenous lidocaine during and after posterior spinal fusion for AIS. Group 2 (Control) will receive saline placebo during and after surgery.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Study Group
will receive intravenous lidocaine during and after posterior spinal fusion for AIS
Drug: IV lidocaine
an amide-type, short-acting local anesthetic and delivered as an aqueous solution for intravenous administration. It has a half-life of 1.5-2 hours. A traditional method of administration is via epidural delivery. Epidural lidocaine is effective and this effect is due, in part, to systemic absorption. Systemic (intravenous) administration of lidocaine is a Food and Drug Administration approved method of delivery. Low plasma levels are needed for effective use, 0.5µg/mL to 5.0µg/mL. Given this low concentration required and the short half-life, continuous infusion of lidocaine is thought to be generally safe with low risk of complication.

Placebo Comparator: Control Group
will receive saline placebo during and after surgery.
Drug: Placebos

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Opioid consumption [ Time Frame: up to 6 weeks after surgery ]
    measured in morphine-equivalent dosage (MED)
