Interests: anesthesia; intraoperative neural monitoring (IONM); thyroid surgery; multimodal analgesia; enhanced recovery after surgery
Insufficient analgesia is associated with several poor postoperative outcomes for patients. In recent decades, multimodal analgesia has been used to enhance recovery after surgery.
Perioperative multimodal analgesia consists of various analgesic agents with analgesic techniques acting on different pain mechanisms. Since opioids act as double-edged swords in pain management, opioid-sparing multimodal analgesia effects are also valuable in terms of healthcare quality. The expansion of regional block approaches from extremity to trunk represents a promising technique and also a challenge for healthcare providers. Another aspect of pain management is modern techniques to monitor intraoperative pain response, such as the analgesia nociception index (ANI), surgical pleth index (SPI) and nociception level (NOL), which are commercially available.
The aim of this Special Issue is to gather submissions covering a wide range of topics on perioperative multimodal analgesia and intraoperative pain monitoring. The scope of the issue also covers a wide range of with a focus on analgesic agents, regional block techniques, novel analgesic or novel use of traditional drug, opioid-sparing effects and chronic postsurgical pain. It is my pleasure to announce this Special Issue entitled “Perioperative Multimodal Analgesia for Postoperative Pain” to address all the above considerations. Any paper on any subject appropriate to this Special Issue is welcome. Submissions in the form of original articles, meta-analyses and reviews are particularly welcome.
