Local Anaesthesia and Remifentanil Sedation Versus Total Intravenous Anaesthesia for Hysteroscopic Surgery in an Ambulatory Surgery Department.


Brief description of study

The purpose of this study is to compare a new method: the combination of conscious sedation with remifentanil (a shortlasting opioid drug) and local anaesthesia, with the traditional general anaesthesia for hysteroscopic surgery. The primary outcomes are: the time spent in the operation room, the time to full mobilisation postoperatively and the time to complete recovery postoperatively and the time to discharge. Secondary outcome: patient satisfaction.
