BACKGROUND: This study was designed to compare the efficacy of prophylactic ramosetron and ondansetron in preventing postoperative vomiting in children who received fentanyl by patient-controlled analgesia after orthopedic surgery. METHODS: Two hundred and eighteen children, 2-15 years old, ASA physical status 1 or 2, scheduled for elective orthopedic surgeries, were randomly divided into the ramosetron group (n = 109) or ondansetron group (n = 109). Patients in ondansetron group received ondansetron 100 μg·kg(-1) and patients in ramosetron group received ramosetron 6 μg·kg(-1) after surgery. Intravenous patient-controlled analgesia with fentanyl was used in both groups. The incidence of postoperative vomiting and side effects were assessed during the 48 h after surgery. RESULTS: There was significantly less vomiting during the first 24-h and 6-24-h period after surgery in ramosetron group than in ondansetron group (P < 0.01). There were no significant differences in side effect of 5-HT(3) antagonist between the two groups. CONCLUSION: Ramosetron was more effective during the first 24-h period after surgery than ondansetron in children using fentanyl patient-controlled analgesia after general anesthesia.
