Background and Aims:

The aim of this study was to compare ketamin-propofol and tramadol propofol combination in patients undergoing uterine dilatation and curretage. pain scoring recorded.


 100 women under going uterine dilatation and curettage were screened retrospectively after ethical comitee approval. Baseline anesthesia was maintained with 1 mg/kg propofol, and the patients were randomly allocated to receive 0.5 mg/kg ketamine (Group 1, n=50) or 1 mg/kg tramadol (Group 2, n=50) there after. Hemodynamic variables, pain, sedation, Aldrete recovery score and side effects were recorded


 Postoperative heart rate and systolic arterial pressure on beginning were significantly higher in Group 1 compared with Group 2 (p<0.05). No significant difference was noticed compare to the results between the groups.


Tramadol might be a better alternative drug rather than ketamine due to better hemodynamic stability and lower respiratory depression rate were seen in patents with it.
