Id: NCT00229567

Organisation Name: University of Saskatchewan

Overal Status: Terminated

Start Date: September 2005

Last Update: April 19, 2007

Lead Sponsor: University of Saskatchewan

Brief Summary: Bowel function after bowel surgery is delayed (postoperative ileus)by both opiates and the surgery itself. We hypothesized that decreasing opiate use by other analgesics will speed the return of bowel function after surgery. Lidocaine and Ketamine are drugs that appear to be synergistic and do not slow peristalsis. This study is a Randomised Controlled Trial of Lidocaine Infusion Plus Ketamine Injection versus Placebo to to determine whether they will decrease opiate use and then whether decreased opiate use will speed the return of bowel function.
