Does ondansetron or granisetron prevent subarachnoid morphine-induced pruritus after cesarean delivery?

, : Does ondansetron or granisetron prevent subarachnoid morphine-induced pruritus after cesarean delivery?. Anesthesia and Analgesia 104(2): 421-424

BACKGROUND: We compared the efficacy of granisetron and ondansetron for the prevention of subarachnoid morphine-induced pruritus after cesarean delivery.METHODS: The incidence of pruritus was assessed in parturients who were randomly allocated into Group G (granisetron 3 mg IV, n = 45), Group O (ondansetron 8 mg IV, n = 42), and Group S (saline IV, n = 42).RESULTS: The incidence of pruritus was not significantly different among the 3 groups (86.6% in Group S, 83.3% in Group O, and 88% in the Group G).CONCLUSION: Neither prophylactic ondansetron nor granisetron reduced the incidence of subarachnoid morphine-induced pruritus when compared with the saline group.
