Comment on “Analgesic effect of music during wound care among patients with diaphyseal tibial fractures: Randomized controlled trial”.


With great interest, we read the article by Ferraz et al published in 2021 in the Eur J Pain (Ferraz et al., 2021). The authors performed a randomized controlled trial (RCT) and concluded that "Listening to music is effective for relieving acute procedural pain during the first post-operative tibial fracture dressing change. Music should be incorporated into the multimodal analgesia protocols for management of orthopedic postoperative wound care related pain." At the outset, we would like to congratulate the authors for writing an informative article with novelty. Nevertheless, we have several suggestions and queries that we would like to communicate with the authors.
