PMID: 33634628.


Preventive analgesia in orthopedic surgery is becoming increasingly important because post-surgical pain management is more pleasant for the patient and allows them to initiate rehabilitation early. With this premise we consider the following hypothesis. The perception of post-surgical pain at two, 12 and 24 hours with local infiltration into the surgical wound with ropivacaine plus systemic analgesia will be less compared to patients who infiltrate with saline into the surgical wound plus systemic analgesia.
