Id: NCT02752477

Organisation Name: University of Saskatchewan

Overal Status: Active, not recruiting

Start Date: August 2, 2016

Last Update: March 26, 2020

Lead Sponsor: Ben Lim

Brief Summary: The objective of this trial is to determine whether an opioid-free general anesthetic (OFA) technique utilizing ketamine, dexmedetomidine, and lidocaine infusions can help reduce postoperative pain in opiate-dependent chronic pain patients (CPPs) undergoing spine surgery when compared with traditional opioid-containing techniques. It is expected that this OFA regimen will have a measurable reduction on postoperative opioid consumption and pain scores in CPPs.
