Abstract

The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of preoperative massage on intra- and postoperative outcomes in 105 female subjects who had a laparoscopic gynecologic surgery procedure done. The subjects received a 30-minute massage (massage group) or 30 minutes of passive touch (control group). There was no difference between the groups in the average dose of inhaled anesthetics received. Patients in the massage group received significantly less intraoperative narcotics (2.2 ± 1.1 versus 2.8 ± 2.0 meg of fentanyl/kg/hour). Patients in the massage group had significantly less postoperative anxiety (massage group, 9.83 ± 2.9 vs. control group 11.24 ± 3.6). The findings suggest that preoperative massage decreased intraoperative narcotic requirements and postoperative anxiety levels.
