Epidural buprenorphine or morphine for the relief of head and neck cancer pain.
Anesth Prog. 1991 Mar-Apr; 38(2):69-71.AP

Abstract

We present three cases in which epidural buprenorphine or morphine was used for intractable cancer pain of the head and neck. Excellent pain relief and minimal side effects offered by epidural opioids were of significant benefit. The use of epidural opioids prior to the administration of high doses of oral morphine may be the treatment of choice for pain from malignancy of the head and neck, especially when there is tumor extension or distant metastasis.
