Consequently, maxillofacial cancer surgery constitutes a large part of surgical oncology practice in India... Traditionally, strong analgesics such as opioids have been used intra-operatively whereas non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and paracetamol are most commonly given at the end of surgery as part of multimodal approach to post-operative analgesia... Hence, there is a tendency to restrict use of NSAIDs in these patients... We hypothesized that addition of single dose of diclofenac at the time of induction would exert opioid sparing effect during intra-operative period and reduce surges in blood pressure (BP) and pulse rate during noxious stimuli... The subjects included 100 adult patients more than 18 years of age posted for maxillofacial surgery with reconstructive surgery... The patients recruited to the study were randomised prior to anaesthesia to either Group 1 (Placebo Group) to receive 100 cc normal saline after induction of anaesthesia and Group 2 (Diclofenac Group) to receive diclofenac sodium 1 mg/kg in 100 cc normal saline IV after induction of anaesthesia... Our study showed that diclofenac administered at the beginning of surgery reduced opioid required to control the haemodynamic response to surgical stimulation... During balanced anaesthesia, optimum analgesia reduces the dose of anaesthetic agents and muscle relaxants resulting in a better post-operative recovery... Better analgesia also helps to maintain cardiovascular stability... Succinylcholine and vecuronium used in the study have different effects on pulse rate, but the effect is short lasting and would not affect results as interval between induction and incision usually exceeds 15 min... Similarly, assessors and anaesthesiologist conducting case and patient were not aware about the method of randomisation, minimizing chance of bias... Diclofenac when given as an intra-operative analgesic reduced fentanyl consumption in the intra-operative period with extension of analgesia into the early post-operative period... Patients receiving diclofenac were significantly less sedated than those in the Placebo Group.

Figure 3: Comparison of mean arterial pressure and mean pulse during surgery between two groups

Mentions: There was no difference in pulse rate at induction, incision and removal of tumour; there was significant difference in mean arterial pressure at incision (P < 0.01), at primary tumour removal (P < 0.007) and at incision for reconstructive surgery (P = 0.011). None of the patients in either group required any other measures to control the BP [Figure 3].
