We compared transitional analgesia provided by scalp nerve block (SNB) or morphine after remifentanil-based anesthesia in neurosurgery. Fifty craniotomy patients were randomly divided into two groups: morphine (morphine 0.1 mg x kg(-1) IV after dural closure and an SNB performed with 20 mL of 0.9% saline at the end of surgery) and block (10 mL of 0.9% saline instead of morphine after dural closure and an SNB performed with a 1:1 mixture of bupivacaine 0.5% and lidocaine 2% at the end of surgery… CONTINUE READING
