Neonates are known to be sensitive to volatile anaesthetic agents which may lead to prolonged recovery. In this study, a remifentanil infusion was used in conjunction with an infusion of epidural ropivacaine and isoflurane anaesthesia for major abdominal surgery in small infants. This led to a short recovery time for infants aged 7 days to 3 months but a prolonged recovery in those under the age of 7 days. Good perioperative analgesia was achieved.
