Active Comparator: Tramadol
Intraoperative administration of a bolus dose of tramadol and continuous intravenous infusion of tramadol for up to 48 h postoperatively.
Tramadol administered intravenously (1mg/kg) thirty minutes before the expected end of surgery, followed by a continuous infusion of tramadol (0.2mg•kg-¹•h-¹) for up to 48 h after major upper abdominal surgery, in patients receiving PCA morphine postoperatively at a bolus dose of 1 mg with a lockout period of 8 minutes.
Other Name: Tramal
Active Comparator: Ketamine
Intraoperative administration of a bolus dose of ketamine and continuous intravenous infusion of ketamine for up to 48 h postoperatively.
Ketamine administered intravenously (0.5mg/kg) thirty minutes before the expected end of surgery, followed by a continuous infusion of ketamine (0.12mg•kg-¹•h-¹) for up to 48 h after major upper abdominal surgery, in patients receiving PCA morphine postoperatively at a bolus dose of 1 mg with a lockout period of 8 minutes.
Other Name: Ketalar
- Measurement of morphine consumption expressed as milligrams postoperatively in abdominal surgery. [ Time Frame: 48 hours postoperatively ]
