Decreasing Upper and Shoulder Pain After Laparoscopic Surgery
Maneuvers to Decrease Upper and Shoulder Pain After Gynecologic Laparoscopic Surgery

Laparoscopic surgery is becoming a major procedure, owing to smaller incisions, shorter hospitalizations, and less post-operative pain as compared with traditional laparotomies. However, there is marked interindividual variability of post-operative shoulder-tip pain following laparoscopic surgery. The incidence of shoulder pain varies from 35% to 80% and ranges from mild to severe. In some cases, it has been reported to last more than 72 hours after surgery.

The hypothesis of post-operative shoulder-tip pain is that carbon dioxide induced phrenic nerve irritation causes referred pain to C4. Therefore, the investigators should try to do is that if the investigators could reduce carbon dioxide retention in the pelvic cavity.

This clinical controlled trial is tried to find out the practical and clinical maneuver to reduce post-operative should-tip pain following laparoscopic surgery.

This clinical controlled trial is tried to find out the practical and clinical maneuver to reduce post-operative upper abdominal and shoulder pain after laparoscopic surgery.
Interventional
Phase 3
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double (Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
  • Shoulder Pain
  • Nausea
  • Procedure: Pulmonary recruitment maneuver
    A pulmonary recruitment maneuver consisting of five manual pulmonary inflations was performed with a maximum pressure of 60 cmH2O. The anesthesiologist held the fifth positive pressure inflation for approximately 5 seconds.
  • Procedure: Intraperitoneal normal saline infusion
    The upper part of the abdominal cavity was evenly and bilaterally filled with the 0.9% normal saline in the amount of 500cc. We will leave the fluid in the abdominal cavity
  • Procedure: combined group
    The upper part of the abdominal cavity was evenly and bilaterally filled with the 0.9% normal saline in the amount of 500cc. Later, a pulmonary recruitment maneuver consisting of five manual pulmonary inflations was performed with a maximum pressure oof 60 cmH2O.
  • Procedure: Control group
    Co2 was removed by passive exsufflation through the port site.
  • Experimental: Pulmonary recruitment maneuver
    A pulmonary recruitment maneuver consisting five manual pulmonary inflations was performed with a maximum pressure of 60 cmH2O. The anesthesiologist held the fifth positive pressure inflation for approximately 5 seconds.
    Intervention: Procedure: Pulmonary recruitment maneuver
  • Experimental: Intraperitoneal normal saline infusion
    The upper part of the abdominal cavity was evenly and bilaterally filled with the 0.9% normal saline in the amount of 500cc we will leave the fluid in the abdominal cavity.
    Intervention: Procedure: Intraperitoneal normal saline infusion
  • Experimental: combined group
    The upper part of the abdominal cavity was evenly and bilaterally filled with the 0.9% normal saline in the amount of 500cc. Later, a pulmonary recruitment maneuver consisting of five manual pulmonary inflations was performed with a maximum pressure of 60 cmH20. The anesthesiologist held the fifth positive pressure inflation for approximately 5 seconds.
    Intervention: Procedure: combined group
  • Placebo Comparator: Control group
    Co2 was removed by passive exsufflation through the port site
    Intervention: Procedure: Control group
