The primary objective of the AIMS randomized controlled trial is to determine the efficacy of ibuprofen in reducing postoperative pain in children recovering from inguinal surgery when compared to morphine.
This study aims to recruit 100 patients between the ages of 10 months - 5 years months who are diagnosed with unilateral inguinal hernia or hydrocele, or undescended testes requiring inguinal surgery. The AIMS study is being carried out at McMaster Children's Hospital.
