Surgeonâ€™s Guide to Postsurgical Pain Management: Colorectal and Abdominal Surgery
This handbook is designed to be highly clinically relevant and focuses on the various analgesic pharmacotherapy techniques and protocols available to minimize postoperative pain and pain medication side effects. Multimodal "opioid-sparing" analgesic techniques and stepwise protocols incorporating short- and long-acting local analgesia are reviewed in detail, along with strategies to minimize postoperative pain-related complications. Relevant pain pathophysiology is presented as a framework for understanding the basis of a multimodal approach to pain management. There are separate chapters for each class of pain medication. Pain management strategies in anorectal surgery, abdominal surgery, and special populations are presented in dedicated chapters.
