The chapter “New Vistas in Perioperative Pain Management” provides an overview of analgesics for acute pain that have been recently introduced and that are in development as well as a discussion of enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) programs that make use of multimodal analgesic regimens. It reviews the innovation in analgesics that has focused on new formulations and uses of older compounds including oral, intravenous, and transmucosal agents. It describes the potential role of mu-opioid g-protein modulators as novel opioids with an improved adverse effect profile as well as a novel opioid with the potential for lower abuse potential. It also explains the use of analgesic regimens and pathways in ERAS programs to reduce recovery times and length of hospital stays.
