We have studied the anaesthetic and analgesic properties of intrathecal clonidine and intrathecal morphine in patients undergoing total hip replacement under spinal anaesthesia. After routine spinal anaesthesia with 0.5% plain bupivacaine 2.75 ml, patients were allocated randomly to receive intrathecal clonidine, morphine or saline (control) as adjuvant to the bupivacaine. Postoperative analgesic effects were measured by consumption of morphine via patient-controlled analgesia and visual… CONTINUE READING
