Abstract

Application value of epidural anesthesia combined with epidural analgesia and general anesthesia combined with intravenous analgesia in ovarian cancer surgery was explored. In total 298 ASA I‑III grade patients with ovarian cancer, undergoing extensive total hysterectomy and pelvic lymphotomy, were retrospectively analyzed. Patients were divided into two groups: the epidural anesthesia combined with epidural analgesia group (group A, 158 cases), and the general anesthesia combined with intravenous analgesia group (group B, 140 cases). The first exhaust time, incidence of adverse reactions, Aldrete score, and recovery were observed, and the visual analogue scale (VAS) scores during resting, exercise and cough at 24 h after surgery were recorded. Fasting venous blood (2 ml) was drawn at the same time before anesthesia and at 24 h after anesthesia in both groups to determinate cortisol (COR) and C‑reactive protein (CRP) levels. The first exhaust time and incidence of adverse reactions in group A were significantly lower than those in group B (P<0.05). The Aldrete score and extubation time (ET) in group A were significantly higher than that in group B. Eye opening time (EOT), recovery orientation time (ROT) and post‑anesthesia care unit (PACU) time in group A were significantly lower than those in group B (P<0.05). The VAS scores in group A during resting, exercise and cough were lower than those in group B (P<0.05). Compared with before anesthesia, the levels of COR and CRP increased significantly in both groups at 24 h after anesthesia (P<0.05), while the level of COR and CRP in group A was significantly lower than that in group B, at 24 h after surgery (P<0.05). Epidural anesthesia combined with epidural analgesia has better analgesic effect, higher safety, lower incidence of adverse reactions, and is beneficial to the recovery of patients with ovarian cancer after radical operation when compared with general anesthesia combined with intravenous analgesia.
