  2. Abstract

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

It is the objective of this systematic review to evaluate the benefits of systemic perioperative intravenous lidocaine infusion for an enhanced postoperative recovery in patients undergoing various surgical procedures. The main focus is on the assessment of relative benefits (and risks) of intravenous lidocaine as opposed to epidural analgesia for the postoperative period. The effectiveness will be assessed using a number of clinical relevant outcomes such as reducing the risk of paralytic ileus, shortening the length of hospital stay, efficacy in pain treatment as well as adverse events.
