Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In summary, in this prospective randomized study, we compared the analgesic effects of intrathecal plus intravenous fentanyl and intravenous fentanyl in 36 cesarean section patients. There were no differences between the two methods in the duration of analgesia and motor block, postoperative pain scale scores, or the frequency of side effects such as nausea/vomiting and hypotension.
