Active Comparator: IV Morphine Sulfate or Sponsor-approved Equivalent
Standard of Care (SOC)
Drug: IV morphine sulfate or Sponsor-approved equivalent
Patients in this group will receive IV morphine sulfate or Sponsor-approved equivalent via a patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) pump, as needed. The PCA pump will be set up postsurgically as soon as possible and prior to the patient leaving the post-anesthesia care unit (PACU) or immediately upon transfer to a floor if the stay in the PACU is less than one hour.
EXPAREL (bupivacaine liposome injectable suspension)
Patients will receive 266 mg EXPAREL diluted with preservative-free 0.9% normal saline to a total volume of 40 cc administered via wound infiltration prior to wound closure. When not contraindicated, 30 mg IV ketorolac will be given at the end of surgery. If not indicated, an IV non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) may be substituted per the site's standard of care.
All patients will be offered rescue analgesia, as needed.
Other Name: bupivacaine liposome injectable suspension
