Perioperative Gabapentin
Show Notes

Gabapentin is often used in a multi-model pain management strategy in both peri- and post-operative setting. Little data exists looking at the adverse effects of this practice. Join host Geoff Wall, as he reviews data from a new study looking at this question.

The GameChanger
Gabapentin’s data is sparse for use in postoperative pain; however, new data suggest use after orthopedic surgery is associated with poor outcomes.
