Author(s): Dr. Vijay Acharya
Abstract: Background: The present study was conducted to compare epidural and wound infiltration analgesia in study group. Materials & Methods: The present study was conducted in the department of Anesthesia. It comprised of 64 patients aged 30–70 years belonging to the American society of Anesthesiologists physical status 1 and 2. Patients were divided into 2 groups of 32 each. Group I were those in which epidural infiltration was given and group II were those in which wound infiltration was done. Patients were evaluated for visual analogue score at rest (VASR) and at deep breathing (VASDB) post‑operatively. Results: There was non- significant difference (P> 0.05) in VAS score recorded in both groups at 10 minutes, 20 minutes, 60 minutes, 90 minutes, 120 minutes and 180 minutes at rest whereas it was significant at deep breadth (P< 0.05). In group I 1 and in group II 2 had side effects. Conclusion: Continuous epidural infusion is better as compared to Continuous wound infiltration. Side effects were also less in continuous epidural infusion group.
