The purpose

With thyroid surgery being performed as an ambulatory procedure, most recent studies concerning post thyroidectomy analgesia are focused on regional techniques such as bilateral superficial cervical plexus block (BSCPB) and bilateral combined superficial and deep cervical plexus block. But, data regarding the efficacy of BSCPB are controversial. Hence the investigators compared the efficacy of BSCPB with 0.25% bupivacaine with or without clonidine in thyroidectomy, as preemptive analgesia. The hypothesis was bupivacaine with the addition of clonidine would help in reducing postoperative pain and thereby reduce the need for postoperative analgesia.
