In April 2002 our practice ceased routine use of epidural analgesia for colorectallaparotomy in favour of a six-drug
multimodal regimen comprising ketamine, clonidine, morphine, tramadol, paracetamol and a non-steroidal
anti-inflammatory drug. The records of 54 patients who received this multimodal analgesia regimen (MM) after
April 2002 were compared to the 59 patients who had previously received epidural analgesia (EPI). Patients had the
same surgeon and anaesthetist.
