Single-dose intra-articular morphine for pain control after knee arthroscopy

  • Protocol
  • Intervention



This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

The objectives of this review are to evaluate the relative effects on pain and adverse effects of intra-articular morphine given for pain control after knee arthroscopy versus:

  1. placebo injections;

  2. other analgesics (local anaesthetics, NSAIDs, other opioids); and

  3. other routes of morphine administration.

We will also examine whether the analgesic effect of intra-articular morphine is dose-dependent by direct comparisons of different doses of morphine.
