Acetaminophen to reduce postoperative nausea and vomiting in patients undergoing strabismus surgery

We read with great interest the article of Aksoy et al. in a recent issue of the journal. The authors performed a prospective randomized study on 96 patients undergoing strabismus surgery and concluded that the preoperative administration of paracetamol reduces PONV incidence in children undergoing strabismus surgery. The authors should be commended for performing a study in an important topic (e.g. acute pain and PONV) in pediatric patients undergoing surgery. The current emphasis on the need to use non opioid strategies to improve postoperative pain, nausea and vomiting makes the topic very relevant in perioperative medicine.

Keywords: Strabismus surgery, pediatrics, postoperative pain, non-opioid
