Influence of Morphine on Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics of Ticagrelor in
Patients with Acute Myocardial Infarction (IMPRESSION): study protocol for a
randomized controlled trial. 
BACKGROUND: Ticagrelor is an oral platelet P2Y12 receptor antagonist which is
recommended for patients suffering from myocardial infarction, both with and
without persistent ST segment elevation... DISCUSSION: This study is expected to provide essential evidence-based data on
the impact of morphine on the absorption of ticagrelor in patients with
myocardial infarction as well as to shed some light on the suspected connection
between morphine use and antiplatelet activity of ticagrelor in the same group of

Evaluation of a single-dose, extended-release epidural morphine formulation for
pain control after lumbar spine surgery. 
DepoDur, an extended-release epidural morphine, has been used effectively for
postoperative pain control following many orthopaedic and general surgery
procedures and has provided prolonged analgesia when compared with Duramorph. The
goal of this article was to compare the safety and analgesic efficacy of DepoDur
versus Duramorph after lumbar spine surgery...

Transversus abdominis plane block versus perioperative intravenous lidocaine
versus patient-controlled intravenous morphine for postoperative pain control
after laparoscopic colorectal surgery: study protocol for a prospective,
randomized, double-blind controlled clinical trial. 
BACKGROUND: Despite the laparoscopic approach becoming the standard in colorectal
surgery, postoperative pain management for minimally invasive surgery is still
mainly based on strategies that have been established for open surgical
procedures... DISCUSSION: Recognizing the importance of a multimodal approach for perioperative
pain management, we aim to investigate whether a transversus abdominis plane
block delivers superior pain control in comparison to perioperative intravenous
lidocaine and patient-controlled intravenous analgesia with morphine alone.
Clinical Trials Related to Msir (Morphine)
Patients-Controlled Epidural Analgesia After Gastric Bypass for Morbid Obesity Using Morphine-Levobupivacaine Regimens [Completed]
Adequate postoperative analgesia can facilitate recovery following gastric bypass surgery
for morbid obesity. The efficacy and safety of intravenous patient - controlled analgesia
has been studied, but up to date no data are available concerning the use of thoracic
epidural patient-controlled analgesia regarding the use of levobupivacaine combined with
morphine in morbidly obese patients. The investigators' aim in this prospective,
randomized, double-blinded study was to compare the analgesic effectiveness, the dose
requirements and side effects of thoracic epidural patient controlled analgesia 0. 1% and
0. 2% levobupivacaine combined with a continuous epidural administration of morphine, with or
without a loading dose, after open gastric bypass for morbid obesity.
The Median Effective Dose (ED50) of Paracetamol and Morphine : A Study of Interaction Study [Completed]
The aim of our study is to define the median effective analgesic doses (ED50) of
paracetamol, morphine, and their combination and determination the nature of their
interaction administered IV for postoperative pain after moderate painful surgery using
up-and-down and isobolographic methods.

Ketamine Associated With Morphine PCA After Total Hip Arthroplasty [Completed]
Ketamine (an analgesic drug often associated with morphine in the treatment of Opioid

We will perform a randomised double blind study to determine the best infusion mode of
intravenous ketamine, associated with morphine in PCA syringe or alone in continuous
Continuous Pre-uterine Wound Infiltration Versus Intrathecal Morphine for Postoperative Analgesia After Cesarean Section [Recruiting]
The cesarean section is considered as a painful surgery during the post operative period.
Mothers may need to move immediately after the surgery to take care of their babies. This
may increase the risk of major pain and chronic pain. Thus, excellent postoperative
analgesia is required so that mothers do not experience pain in caring for their baby.
Currently, several techniques have been developed to manage postoperative pain related to
c-section scar such as intrathecal morphine during spinal anesthesia or continuous
pre-peritoneal wound infiltration. The comparison between anesthetic techniques has never
been performed and it is still not know if the combination of intrathecal morphine plus
continuous pre-peritoneal wound infiltration provide a synergistic or additional effect on
