Multiple simultaneous perineural infusions for postoperative analgesia in adolescents in an outpatient setting

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We report a case series of five adolescents who were managed with dual simultaneous perineural infusions after orthopaedic surgery on an outpatient basis. Adolescents undergoing orthopaedic procedures involving more than one extremity or nerve distribution can be managed after operation with multiple catheters. Use of low concentrations of local anaesthetic infusions along with good patient and family education and close follow-up by a dedicated paediatric pain management team can make this feasible in an outpatient setting.
