Intrapleural analgesia following endoscopic scoliosis correction
Morris, Stephen A., Izatt, Maree T., Labrom, Robert D., Adam, Clayton J., & Askin, Geoffrey N. (2012) Intrapleural analgesia following endoscopic scoliosis correction. In Spine Society of Australia 23rd Annual Scientific Meeting, 27-29 April 2012, The Westin, Sydney, NSW. (Unpublished)
Endoscopic (thoracoscopic) scoliosis correction plays an important part in the surgical options available for treating adolescent idiopathic scoliosis. However, there is a paucity of literature examining optimum methods of analgesia following this type of surgery. Intra-pleural analgesia has been successfully used following cardiothoracic procedures [1-3]. The role of intra-pleural analgesia after keyhole anterior selective thoracic scoliosis correction is examined and described.
