Its first product, AMT-143, will target superior post-operative pain control with the goal of eliminating opioid use following surgery.
The company's first product, AMT-143, targets superior post-operative pain control with the goal of eliminating opioid use following surgery.
Adjuvants are compounds, which by themselves have undesirable side-effects or low potency but in combination with opioids allow a reduction of narcotic dosing for post-operative pain control. Adjuvants are needed for post-operative pain management due to side-effects of opioid analgesics which hinder recovery, especially in the increasingly utilised ambulatory surgical procedures.
A study conducted by researchers at Louisiana State University suggests that opioid-naive patients receive an opioid prescription for post-operative pain control at hospital discharge after major surgery.
In spring 2015, the institution implemented strategies to reduce the use of intravenous analgesia with recommendations to promote a variety of other pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic pain management strategies for post-operative pain control. All subjects who used PCA on POD2 were active in the study during spring 2015.
All of the patients were administered 1 mg/kg tramadol IV for post-operative pain control at the end of skin incision.
Furthermore, despite prevalent neuropathic pattern in most of post thoracotomy pains, it seemed that intercostal nerve preservation with subsequent preparation of intercostal muscle flap did not lead to post-operative pain control.
An adequate post-operative pain control provides low morbidity rates, reduces the severity of endocrine and metabolic response due to the surgery and shortens the recovery period [18].
Caudal anaesthesia is a useful adjunct to general anaesthesia for lower abdominal surgery in children as it provides intraoperative analgesia, smooth recovery period and good post-operative pain control which reduces Perioperative narcotic requirements.
In March 2012, AcelRx initiated its first Phase 3 clinical study for ARX-01, a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled efficacy and safety study comparing ARX-01 to placebo for post-operative pain control following major open abdominal surgery.
This resulted in the femoral nerve block being selected for surgical anesthesia and post-operative pain control rather than the conventional approach of general anesthesia with post-operative narcotic/opioid pain control.
What patients think of as minimally invasive surgery actually is combined with many other variables: patient education and selection, preemptive analgesia, better post-operative pain control, and more rapid mobilization.
