Comparison of traditional and upper thoracic epidural analgesia after off-pump coronary artery bypass graft surgery: A Quasi-experimental study.


Surgical trauma initiates changes in central and peripheral nervous systems that need to be treated therapeutically to facilitate postoperative pain. The quality of postoperative analgesia is expected to affect clinical outcomes positively. Albeit optimal pain relief following cardiac surgery is often complex, researchers have tried to explore several techniques other than conventional ones during the last decade to find a unique analgesic method for postcardiac surgical patients. This study aims to find a unique analgesic approach that maximizes patient satisfaction after off-pump coronary artery bypass graft (OPCABG) surgery.
