Background. Local analgesia through wound catheters is used as a part of multimodal analgesia. The efficacy of continuous subfascial wound infusion compared to epidural analgesia is unknown for abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy (TAH-BSO) via Pfannenstiel incision. The aim of this study was to compare the aforementioned two methods in this type of surgery for postoperative morphine consumption, acute and persistent postsurgical pain.
