Does Intravenous Ketamine Enhance Analgesia after Arthroscopic Shoulder Surgery with Ultrasound Guided Single-Injection Interscalene Block?: A Randomized, Prospective, Double-Blind Trial

Ketamine has anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antihyperalgesic effect and prevents pain associated with wind-up.
