Administration of clonidine — intrathecally or intravenously — may not supplement spinal anesthesia-associated analgesia after cesarean delivery.
Ilioinguinal-Transversus Abdominis Plane Block When Standard Analgesia Fails After Cesarean DeliveryFebruary 23, 2018
Ilioinguinal-transversus abdominis plane block was shown to provide superior pain relief compared with a multimodal analgesic regimen in patients undergoing an elective cesarean delivery.
The most promising tools to predict acute pain after cesarean delivery are local anesthetic infiltration before placement of spinal anesthesia, and asking patients simple questions about anticipated pain and analgesic needs.
Prescheduled pain management strategies after cesarean delivery are superior to receiving medications on-demand.
