Diclofenac vs oxybuprocaine eyedrops for analgesia in paediatric strabismus surgery.

Abstract

Forty children undergoing strabismus surgery as day patients were randomly allocated to receive oxybuprocaine 0.4% eyedrops or 0.1% diclofenac eyedrops for perioperative analgesia. A non-invasive anaesthetic technique using the reinforced laryngeal mask airway was used. The study demonstrated that both topical analgesics provided good to excellent analgesia and the anaesthetic technique was associated with a relatively low incidence of nausea and vomiting. Complications were limited to two children who were admitted with persistent postoperative nausea and vomiting.
