Turkish Journal of Medical Sciences
Background/aim: Sex-related differences in response to pain have become a topic of increasing interest. However, sex-related differences in the efficacy of dexamethasone for postoperative analgesia have not been previously addressed. Materials and methods: The study included 196 men and 196 women, aged between 18 and 45 years, who were scheduled for laparoscopic cholecystectomy. The patients were randomly allocated into dexamethasone (M/F: 98/98) and control (normal saline; M/F: 98/98) groups.doi:10.3906/sag-1701-113 pmid:29156875 fatcat:ax6d3qx2m5amlj2gkzs74jx3xu
