Background:Pre-emptive analgesia is an anti-nociceptive intervention given before incision
which helps to reduce pain sensitization to transmission of pain signals evoked by tissue
damage.Oxytocin has recently been recognized as an important mediator of endogenous
analgesia. The present study aimed to assess the effectiveness of preemptive port site
subcutaneous oxytocin infiltration in reducing post-operative pain as compared to post-operative
infiltration in patients undergoing laparoscopic surgeries.
