Timerbayev V.K., Lesnik V.Y., Genov P.G.


The incidence of chronic post-thoracotomy pain may achieve up to 80% in patients undergone thoracic surgery. Many pathogenic factors are involved in developing of chronic pain and the main of them is injury of intercostal nerves. The neuropathic component of pain occurs in almost half of such patients worsening their status significantly and disrupting their activity. Valuable prophylaxis of chronic post- thoracotomy pain may be provided by preventive using methods of regional analgesia and epidural anesthesia and paravertebral block are the basic techniques for these purpose.

Comparing epidural analgesia with continuous femoral block using method of parallel patientcontrolled analgesia after total knee arthroplasty

Voloshin A.G., Kiryushin D.N., Mukutsa I.G., Serebryakov A.B.


Does continuous femoral block have any advantages over epidural analgesia using patient controlled analgesia (PCA)? This question is still opened. The authors conducted a randomized placebo-controlled trial in order to compare epidural analgesia and continuous femoral block using method of double parallel patient-controlled analgesia after total knee arthroplasty. The results demonstrated that the using of PCA does not increase the consumption of local anesthetic and the number of adverse effects in comparison with epidural analgesia.

Astakhov V.A., Sviridov S.V., Malyshev A.A.


Post-operative pain management is the most important component of complex intensive therapy in surgical patients undergone operations differed by volume and traumatic. The key meaning of post-operative pain management is timely assessment of pain severity that defines prescription of analgesics. The authors present modified visual-analog scale (VAS) that allows evidently monitoring pain dynamics in patients for 24 hours. The study was conducted in oncologic patients undergone major cancer surgery on colon. It shows that severity of pain falls mostly to time interval between 3 p.m. and 11 p.m. at 1-3 days and then shifts to the night period (from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m.) at 5-7 days after the operation while using standard method of post-operative analgesia based on opioids, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and adjuvant.
