Abstract :

Pain is considerable after laparoscopic cholecystectomy. This study was conducted to evaluate results of high-volume lowconcentration bupivacaine for postoperative analgesia in Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy. Sixty patients undergoing LC were included in thisstudy. Patients were divided into two (n = 30) groups. In Group S intraperitoneal irrigation was done with 300 ml of normal saline. In Group B 25 ml of 0.5% (125 mg) bupivacaine was added to 275 mlof normal saline for intraperitoneal irrigation during and after surgery. Postoperative painassessment,duration of analgesia (DOA),total rescue analgesic requirement, nausea andvomiting were recorded for the initial 24 h postoperatively. In Group Bmean DOA was more and cumulativerequirement of rescue analgesicwas less than that in Group B. There was no significant difference in incidence of nausea and vomiting between the groups. Highvolume lowconcentrationof intraperitoneal bupivacaine significantly increases postoperative DOA and reduces opioidrequirement after LC.
