|Experimental: Bupivacaine/epinephrine + dexamethasone||
Drug: Intercostal nerve block and wound infiltration with bupivacaine/epinephrine + dexamethasone
Intercostal nerve block and wound infiltration with liposomal bupivacaine during robotic lung resection surgery. 42 ml of 0.5% Bupivacaine/epinephrine with 8mg dexamethasone will be used.
|Active Comparator: Liposomal bupivacaine||
Drug: Intercostal nerve block and wound infiltration with liposomal bupivacaine
Intercostal nerve block and wound infiltration with liposomal bupivacaine during robotic lung resection surgery. 266mg of liposomal bupivacaine with 24 ml of 0.5% bupivacaine will be used.
- Visual Analogue Scale pain scores [ Time Frame: 24 hours post-surgery ]Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) pain score will be assessed for non-inferiority of bupivacaine/epinephrine +dexamethasone vs. liposomal bupivacaine. A non-inferiority margin of 2 points on the VAS scale will be considered non-inferior.
