Brief Summary: Thoracotomy for lung tumor or for minimally invasive direct coronary artery bypass (MIDCAB) surgery, may be associated with debilitating pain. Ketamine was shown to enhance opioid antinociception and prevent opioid resistance. We hypothesize that ketamine given with morphine would lower morphine consumption and narcotic related side effects after thoracotomy and provide superior analgesia to morphine given alone.

Conditions:
  • Post Operative Pain
