BACKGROUND Robotic or endoscopic thyroidectomy using bilateral axillo-breast approach (BABA) is frequently performed for excellent cosmesis. However, postoperative pain is remained as concerns due to the extent tissue dissection and tension during the operation.

We evaluated the effects of intraoperative ketamine infusion on postoperative pain control and recovery profiles… CONTINUE READING
