Id: NCT04355468

Organisation Name: Medical University of Silesia

Overal Status: Completed

Start Date: December 2015

Last Update: May 6, 2020

Lead Sponsor: Medical University of Silesia

Brief Summary: Proper assessment of pain and adequate analgesia in thoracic surgery is a challenging issue for medical practitioners. Basic aspects of thoracic anaesthesia are general anesthesia, intubation with double lumen tube and separation of lung ventilation, however proper analgesia needs to be standardized. Role of opioids in this clinical setting is reduced due to high risk of respiratory system complications. Instead, use of opioid free anaesthesia and regional anaesthesia is proposed. The aim of this study is to compare the use of opioid anaesthesia with opioid free anaesthesia and paravertebral block.

Conditions:
