Benefit-risk of epidural analgesia - post-operative period Epidural analgesia is also widely used during the post-operative period and has been shown to be superior to systemic opioid analgesia for the control of postoperative pain (23). Other beneficial or harmful side effects of TEA during the postoperative period were investigated in a systematic review and meta-analysis including 125 trials, with a total of 9044 patients, analyzing various outcomes (24). In the group receiving TEA vs. systemic opioids the major outcome was a reduced mortality rate (2-3.1% in the epidural group vs. 3.2-4.9% in the control group (OR >0.60)). The main adverse effects of TEA to be mentioned are pruritus, urinary retention, motor blockade and hypotension.
With more than twelve disease-modifying medications approved by the U.S. FDA the course of the disease has shown great refinement. These medications have proven to treat relapsing forms of MS such as exacerbations.
