The total postoperative consumption of fentanyl was significantly lower in the Magnesium group (42.4 ± 5.3) than that in the placebo group (94.4 ± 9.9), with a P value 0.

Conclusion Epidural magnesium , added to levobupivacaine and fentanyl as a single bolus dose effectively prolongs the duration of analgesia in high-risk cardiac patients undergoing peripheral vascular surgery.

CONCLUSIONS The administration of magnesium (75 mg) as an adjuvant to epidural fentanyl (1 μg/ kg) for postoperative analgesia results in significantly lower VRS with prolonged duration of analgesia as compared with epidural fentanyl (1 μg/kg) alone.
