Abstract

PURPOSE: Outpatient postoperative hemorrhoidectomy pain remains a difficult problem. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the use of transdermal fentanyl for analgesia following hemorrhoidectomy. METHODS: Patients were prospectively randomized in a double-blind fashion to one of two groups, placebo or transdermal fentanyl. Forty-two patients were eligible for the study (placebo, 21; fentanyl, 17; 4 were excluded). A visual analog scale was used to evaluate postoperative pain (0 = no pain; 10 = worst pain). RESULTS: Fewer patients in the fentanyl group (10/17) required postoperative parental narcotics than the placebo group (21/21) (P
