Abstract

The optimal management of postoperative pain is a prerequisite for early recovery and shorter hospital stays. The use of multimodal analgesia techniques involving the use of opioid and non-opioid (local anesthetics, ketamine, acetaminophen, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) analgesic drugs can markedly enhance pain relief in the perioperative period.
