Brief Summary:
The aim of this prospective randomized study was to evaluate the impact of peroperative pupillometry monitoring on per and post-operative opioid consumption in major gynecological surgery. All patients were anesthetized with TCI of propofol and remifentanil. In the intervention group, peroperative remifentanil target was guided by pupillometry. In the other group, remifentanil was administered according to standard practice.

Experimental: PUPILLO
Videopupillometer Algiscan peroperative remifentanil target concentration adapted every five minutes to pupillary diameter in patients under propofol and remifentanil TCI
Device: Videopupillometer Algiscan
pupillary diameter measurement every five minutes per-operatively

Drug: Propofol

Drug: Remifentanil

Sham Comparator: STANDARD
peroperative remifentanil target concentration as standard practice in patients under propofol and remifentanil TCI
Other: Standard practice
remifentanil administration left to the discretion of the anesthesiologist in charge according to standard practice

Drug: Propofol

Drug: Remifentanil

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. peroperative remifentanil consumption in µg/kg/min [ Time Frame: duration of surgery ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
