Abstract

Objective: The objective of this study was to determine how intrathecal narcotic use impacts the postoperative course of patients undergoing major gynecologic oncologic procedures. The endpoints evaluated were toxicity and postoperative length of stay. Methods: This was a retrospective chart review of 598 patients who underwent major abdominal surgery and received intrathecal narcotics for post-operative pain control during a 49 month period at St. Vincent Hospital. Charts were reviewed to determine the incidence of specific toxicities and postoperative length of stay.
