Id: NCT02085577

Organisation Name: Rigshospitalet, Denmark

Overal Status: Completed

Start Date: May 2014

Last Update: April 28, 2017

Lead Sponsor: Rigshospitalet, Denmark

Brief Summary: Patients with a daily use of opioids may develop higher postoperative pain levels, often need high doses of morphine and therefore their pain may be difficult to treat. A low dose of an old anesthetic drug, ketamine, administered during surgery can possibly reduce pain and morphine consumption in these patients. Our purpose is to investigate the effect of low dose ketamine on morphine consumption and pain after spine surgery in patients with a daily use of opioids. Our hypothesis is that low dose ketamine can reduce morphine consumption, pain and side-effects after spine surgery.

Conditions:
