Our presentation of the work “Efficacy of perioperative gabapentin use in patients with idiopathic scoliosis undergoing fusion surgery: A systematic review and meta-analysis” was a big hit at this year’s BritSpine conference. The congress, which was held in Glasgow from April 18-20, is the most important in spine surgery, and we are proud to have had the opportunity to present our findings to such a distinguished audience.

Our presentation focused on the efficacy of gabapentin use in the perioperative period in patients with idiopathic scoliosis undergoing fusion surgery. Through a systematic review and meta-analysis, we found a significant reduction in postoperative pain and opioid use in patients who received gabapentin compared to those who did not.

We are delighted to have shared our findings with the medical community at BritSpine and hope that our results will contribute to improving the care and treatment of patients with idiopathic scoliosis undergoing fusion surgery.

Thanks to everyone who supported us on our trip to BritSpine!
