Id: NCT03580980

Organisation Name: National Cancer Institute, Egypt

Overal Status: Completed

Start Date: April 1, 2015

Last Update: July 10, 2018

Lead Sponsor: National Cancer Institute, Egypt

Brief Summary: Surgical trauma initiates multiple physiological mechanisms that cause postoperative pain. Postoperative pain has nociceptive, inflammatory, and neuropathic components.Inadequate relief of postoperative pain leads to significant morbidity, delayed recovery, and mortality.Adverse reactions of medications used for postoperative pain management, particularly opioids, are common including pruritus and nausea and vomiting.Preemptive analgesia is defined as analgesic treatment that starts before surgical incision to prevent central sensitization caused by incisional and inflammatory injuries.Therefore, in this pilot study, the investigators are trying to evaluate safety and efficacy of preemptive multimodal analgesia compared with preemptive caudal analgesia and PCA morphine in pediatric cancer patient undergoing major abdominal surgery.
