Abstract

Self-reported postoperative pain was reduced significantly (P < .05) for up to six hours in a group of ambulatory surgical patients with the application of 5 mL of 1% etidocaine to the banded portion of each fallopian tube after laparoscopic tubal ligation with Falope Rings in comparison to a control group receiving normal saline. The etidocaine group had less nausea and vomiting and smaller antiemetic and analgesic requirements than did the control group, though those results were not statistically significant.
