Abstract

The aim of our study was to compare the efficiency of ropivacaine and bupivacaine, in epidural administration, in postoperative analgesia. 20 patients, undergone knee surgery, in epidural anaesthesia (bupivacaine 0,5%-2 mg/Kg -1 administered in level L 3L 4), was divided into 2 groups (10 each one) and the local anaesthetics in study was administered by epidural catheter with an elastomeric pump: A (ropivacaine 0,15%) and B (bupivacaine 0,15%). The results demonstrate that ropivacaine is better than bupivacaine to keep a check on analgesia in postoperative pain.
