We read with interest Pan’s editorial on post caesarean delivery pain management.
We agree with the conclusion that multimodal postoperative pain management offers the best quality of analgesia with high patient satisfaction and few side effects to mother or baby. The efficacy of multimodal analgesia has been compared with single drug therapy and been found to provide effective analgesia while reducing drug-related side effects.

- PreviewIndividual variability of postoperative pain is influenced by multiple factors, including sensitivity to pain, psychological factors, age and genetics.1–3 Despite advances in postoperative pain management, postoperative pain relief and satisfaction are still inadequate in some patients because of individual variability and limitation from side effects of analgesic drugs or techniques.4 Results from a recent US national survey suggest that a patient has a 50 to 71% chance of experiencing moderate to severe pain after surgery.
