Abstract

Total knee replacement is one of the most common elective operations being done nationwide in Orthopaedics department with average cases of 10 – 15 a month in every tertiary hospital in Malaysia. The International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP) defines pain as “an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage, or described in terms of such damage” We hypothesized that adding oral pregabalin 150mg one hour prior to surgery and 75mg 12 hourly for subsequent two days will improve the Visual Analogue Score (VAS) and better range of movement of knees with no increase in side-effects in patients post total knee replacement
