Gluteal Pain after Sacrospinous Ligament Fixation

Study Description

The Effect of Local Analgesia on Postoperative Gluteal Pain in Patients Undergoing Sacrospinous Ligament Fixation: A Randomized Trial

This study will randomize patients to either receive intraoperative administration of local anesthetic and corticosteriod at time of sacrospinous ligament fixation compared to placebo to determine if intraoperative trigger point injection (TPI) improves postoperative gluteal and sciatic pain scores along with use of narcotic pain medications. There is a paucity of data examining interventions to potentially ameliorate the postoperative gluteal pain often associated with sacrospinous ligament colpopexy. Our study aims to determine if a compounded TPI improves postoperative pain scores and minimizes use of narcotic pain medications by 20% compared to controls.
