Abstract

BACKGROUND: This study aimed to compare remifentanil and ketamine-propofol in terms of hemodynamic response, duration of recovery and patient satisfaction in operative hysteroscopy cases who underwent monitored anaesthesia care in combination with paracervical block.

METHODS: Monitored anaesthesia care was used in 60 ASA I-II female patients. The patients were divided into two groups as remifentanil (Group R) and ketamine-propofol (Group K-P). The hemodynamic effects of remifentanil and ketamine-propofol, and duration of recovery were recorded and compared. The patient satisfaction was also recorded and the two groups were compared.

RESULTS: Age, body mass, ASA status, duration of anaesthesia and type of surgery were found to be similar between groups. The time of the Aldrete score reaching ≥ 9 was found to be shorter in Group R when compared with Group KP (Group R: 4.1 ± 1.9 min, Group K-P: 6.1 ± 2.6 min) (P < 0.05). The incidence of postoperative nausea and vomiting was found to be significantly higher in the remifentanil group (P ≤ 0.05). When the groups were compared in terms of patient satisfaction, in both groups this was found to be similar.

CONCLUSION: Sedation with remifentanil combined with a paracervical block during monitored anaesthesia care provides early recovery with effective sedation and analgesia in hysteroscopy procedures.
