Rationale for the Use of Constant Epidural Infusion of Bupivacaine for Pain Relief in the Early Postoperative Period in Children

D.V. Dmytriyev


The study was carried out in 37 children who underwent surgery for tumors of the retroperitoneum, kidney, ovary. Depending on the method of anesthesia, patients were divided into 2 groups: in group 1 we have used epidural analgesia and continuous intravenous infusion of fentanyl; group 2 has received only intravenous continuous infusion of fentanyl. Multimodal analgesia (epidural analgesia and continuous intravenous infusion of opioid analgesics) significantly reduces the negative consequences of inadequate analgesia in children and contributes to effective analgesia after traumatic operations.
