  Purpose

Background : Epidural anaesthesia is associated in abdominal surgery with reduced pain and postoperative respiratory complications together with quicker recovery of bowel function. Currently, no studies have been able to prove its ability to reduce length of stay in intensive care and high-dependency units.

Purpose : The aim of this study is to demonstrate that epidural anaesthesia reduces length of stay in intensive care unit after abdominal surgery under laparotomy.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Total duration of hospitalization. [ Time Frame: 9 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The difference between the day of surgery and the day when the discharge criteria are met

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: APD
patient with epidural analgesia
Procedure: epidural analgesia
thoracic position (T8-T9 or T11-T12) depending on the site of surgery
Active Comparator: PCA
Patient with morphine analgesia
Procedure: PCA
Morphine 2 mg / 10 min (no max dose) + droperidol 2.5 mg / 50 mL.

Detailed Description:

There are currently two methods of analgesia in postoperative abdominal surgery : patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) with opioids and epidural analgesia.

No international recommendations regarding the use of either of these techniques have yet been written. Epidural analgesia is superior to intravenous morphine, including during mobilization and coughing. It also reduces respiratory complications and optimizes postoperative rehabilitation. Nevertheless, mortality is not improved with this technique. Few publications exist on the optimization of the duration of hospitalization in the intensive care unit.
