Subcutaneous marcaine infiltration and post-operative pain perception after percutaneous nephrolithotomy

Other Article

Recent studies have shown a significant decrease in patient reported pain scores when operative incisions are infiltrated with subcutaneous local anesthetic. We hypothesize that patient reported pain and narcotic use could be further decreased for patients with post-percutaneous nephrolithotomy nephrostomy tubes if the nephrostomy tract and incision are infiltrated with local anesthetic. © 2007 American Institute of Physics.
