The treatment and management of postoperative pain requires a multimodal approach. In this study we perform a retrospective Analysis of patients who received Liposomal Bupivacaine (Exparel) and those that did not. We report their post operative opioid use and their need for anti-emetics. Exparel is a longer acting form of bupivacaine that delivers the works by delivering multivesicular liposomal systems.
