Abstract

Laparoscopic procedures have been associated to moderate or severe pain that may require opioids and almost all patients referred shoulder pain. Intraperitoneal instillation of local anaesthetics, as part of a multimodal approach analgesia program, reduces pain intensity and morphine consumption after laparoscopic cholecystectomy. However, direct local anesthetic instillation is not enough to eliminate visceral and shoulder pain. Heated and humidified gas may produce positive effects such as reduction of postoperative pain. Intraperitoneal nebulization, a new technique of drug administration, provides homogeneous spread of drugs allowing a better distribution of local anaesthetics throughout the peritoneum. This technique combines the effects of gas conditioning and the analgesic benefits of local anaesthetic instillation. Nebulization of local anaesthetics during different laparoscopic procedures reduced postoperative pain, morphine consumption and allowed earlier mobilization. Future studies should determine, the optimal dose of local anaesthetics, the effect of local anaesthetic nebulization in different clinical settings and its importance on long term clinical outcomes.
