BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to compare three patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) techniques for pain relief after acromioplasty. These techniques included use of subacromial ropivacaine, subacromial fentanyl or i.v. fentanyl. METHODS Forty-eight patients scheduled for open acromioplasty surgery were prospectively randomized to receive ropivacaine 0.2% (Group R) or fentanyl 4 microg ml(-1) (Group F) for subacromial analgesia, or fentanyl 4 microg ml(-1) (Group C) for i.v. analgesia… CONTINUE READING
