Analgesic Effect of Perioperative Systemic Lidocaine in Patients Undergoing Unilateral Mastectomy Surgery
The aim of this study is to determine if perioperative systemic lidocaine administration will decrease the amount of opioid analgesics required in women undergoing mastectomy surgery. In addition, patients receiving systemic lidocaine will have a lower incidence of post-mastectomy pain syndrome.
This study will have 2 groups. Participants will be randomized into one of each group. The first group will be administered the drug lidocaine prior to surgery and the second group Group B will be administered saline (salt water). This is a blinded study which means the participant will not know which group they have been assigned. The subjects participation will last 12 months (surveys post operatively).
