Effects of sufentanil and fentanyl on the recovery after laparoscopic cholecystectomy

Objective: To observe the effects of sufentanil and fentanyl on the recovery quality after general anaesthesia, which was conducted on patients with Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy (LC).

Methods: 68 patients aged 45 or above, ASA grade I-II, patients underwent elective laparoscopic cholecystectomy were randomly divided into sufentanil group (group S) and fentanyl group (R group). The postoperative pain, nausea, vomiting, recovery of daily activities and the satisfaction for the hospital were recorded. Verbal Rating Scale (VRS) was used to rate every index after surgery.

Results: Compared with group S. The VRS at 10 min, 20 min, 30 min were elevated in group R (P<0.01). Postoperative pain, nausea and vomiting after hl VRS score two groups had no significant difference (p>0.05), postoperative recovery time daily activities there was no significant difference between the two groups (p>0.05), the patient to the hospital, the satisfaction survey in addition to the satisfaction of postoperative analgesia between the two groups have statistical difference (p<0.05), the other had no significant difference (p>0.05).

Conclusion: Sufentanil and fentanyl could be safely used for the elderly, and as for postoperative analgesia effect of sufentanil is superior to fentanyl 1 hour after LC.
