BACKGROUND Postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) is commonly reported after surgery and anaesthesia. We compared the effects of combinations of electrical acupoint stimulation or tropisetron with dexamethasone with the effects of dexamethasone alone, for inhibition of PONV in gynaecological patients undergoing laparoscopic surgery. METHODS We randomized 157 patients undergoing elective gynaecological laparoscopic surgery under general anaesthesia into the following three groups: acupoint… CONTINUE READING
