Postoperative pain therapy is an important component of medical practise to improve the quality of postoperative care in all patients. However, postoperative pain management in children is a challenge for clinicians because of the differences in perception, expression of pain comparison to adults. Infants and older children possess different pharmacodynamics and responses to drugs thus confounding the issue. Evolving new technologies and drugs increase the treatment options but on the other side appropriate management selection gets harder. In this review, our knowledge about the mechanisms and management options of postoperative pain in children are reviewed in the light of new developments on the subject.
