Abstract

Postoperative pain releif is of importance to both patients and surgeons. One of the simpler technqiues is infiltration of the surgical incision with long acting local anaesthetic after completion of operation. This study was carried out from october 1995 to Decmber 2001. 30 female and 17 male underwent uncomplcated bilateral spehno-femoral ligation. they all received intra operative bupivacaine infiltration into their groin incisions. Postoperative patients were asked to assess a number of variables relating to their postoperative pain. There was no significant difference in the postoperative pain experience between the bupivacaine infiltrated groin incisions and the other groins. our study was unable to show the benefit of infiltrating bupivacaine in the groin incisions.
