The control of post-operative pain in Italy and other western countries is still suboptimal. In recent years, the Sufentanil Sublingual Tablet System (SSTS; Zalviso; Acel-Rx Pharmaceuticals, Redwood City, CA, USA), which is designed for patient-controlled analgesia (PCA), has entered clinical practice. SSTS enables patients to manage moderate-to-severe acute pain during the first 72 postoperative hours directly in the hospital setting. However, the role of SSTS within the current framework of options for the management of post-operative pain needs to be better established. This paper presents the position on the use of SSTS of a multidisciplinary group of Italian Experts and provides protocols for the use of this device.
