Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Efficacy of Epidural Analgesia in Lower Extremity Osteosarcoma
Official Title  ICMJE Efficacy of Epidural Analgesia Initiated in the Preoperative Period in Lower Extremity Osteosarcoma
Brief Summary In this study, the investigators aim to reduce complications in orthopedic malignancy surgeries and to increase the quality of life of patients who will be operated on.
Detailed Description

In the preoperative period, the participants will be taken to the block room. The participants will be monitored, standard sedation will be applied.

Patients in the first group will be provided with preoperative and peroperative analgesia with an epidural catheter. The second group patient will be get no block. Afterwards, both groups will be operated under similar general anesthesia conditions. A patient-controlled analgesia device will be attached to each group of participants and their postoperative follow-up will be made.

Study Type  ICMJE Interventional
Study Phase  ICMJE Not Applicable
Study Design  ICMJE Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Intervention Model Description:
Study group and control group
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Condition  ICMJE
  • Osteosarcoma
  • Analgesia
Intervention  ICMJE Procedure: Epidural Analgesia
In the anesthesia preparation room, an epidutal catheter will be placed with a toue needle through the L4-5 spinal space. After induction of general anesthesia, 10 ml of 0.25% bupivacaine will be injected through the epidural catheter.Afterwards, peroperative and postoperative analgesia will be provided with epidural PCA.
Study Arms  ICMJE
  • Experimental: Study group; Epidural catheter and PCA
    Epidural catheter will be placed in the preoperative period. After induction, 10 ml of 0.25% bupivacaine will be administered through the epidural catheter and bupivacaine PCA will be started.
    Intervention: Procedure: Epidural Analgesia
  • No Intervention: Control group; No block, IC PCA
    Postoperative pain control will be achieved with intravenous morphine PCA.
