Comparison of the effects of tramadol, codeine, and ketoprofen alone or in combination on postoperative pain and on concentrations of blood glucose, serum cortisol, and serum interleukin-6 in dogs undergoing maxillectomy or mandibulectomy.
Summary of "Comparison of the effects of tramadol, codeine, and ketoprofen alone or in combination on postoperative pain and on concentrations of blood glucose, serum cortisol, and serum interleukin-6 in dogs undergoing maxillectomy or mandibulectomy."
Objective-To compare analgesic effects of tramadol, codeine, and ketoprofen administered alone and in combination and their effects on concentrations of blood glucose, serum cortisol, and serum interleukin (IL)-6 in dogs undergoing maxillectomy or mandibulectomy. Animals-42 dogs with oral neoplasms. Procedures-30 minutes before the end of surgery, dogs received SC injections of tramadol (2 mg/kg), codeine (2 mg/kg), ketoprofen (2 mg/kg), tramadol + ketoprofen, or codeine + ketoprofen (at the aforementioned dosages). Physiologic variables, analgesia, and sedation were measured before (baseline) and 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 24 hours after surgery. Blood glucose, serum cortisol, and serum IL-6 concentrations were measured 1, 3, 5, and 24 hours after administration of analgesics. Results-All treatments provided adequate postoperative analgesia. Significant increases in mean +/- SD blood glucose concentrations were detected in dogs receiving tramadol (96 +/- 14 mg/dL), codeine (120 +/- 66 mg/dL and 96 +/- 21 mg/dL), ketoprofen (105 +/- 22 mg/dL), and codeine + ketoprofen (104 +/- 16 mg/dL) at 5, 1 and 3, 5, and 3 hours after analgesic administration, respectively, compared with preoperative (baseline) values. There were no significant changes in physiologic variables, serum IL-6 concentrations, or serum cortisol concentrations. Dogs administered codeine + ketoprofen had light but significant sedation at 4, 5, and 24 hours. Conclusions and Clinical Relevance-Opioids alone or in combination with an NSAID promoted analgesia without adverse effects during the 24-hour postoperative period in dogs undergoing maxillectomy or mandibulectomy for removal of oral neoplasms.

Background: Tramadol is a synthetic codeine analogue used as an analgesic in human and veterinary medicine. It is not approved for use in horses, but could represent a valid tool for pain treatment in...
Tramadol poisoning has increased in recent years. Seizure is one of the side-effects of tramadol toxicity. There is a controversy about possible preventive effect of naloxone in tramadol poisoning ind...
Tramadol is frequently used as a pain reliever. However, it has been sometimes noted to have the potential to cause seizures. Because of its dual mechanism of action (both opioid and nonopioid), the a...
In different clinical investigations of thrombocytopenia, ketoprofen was found to be the associated cause. Ketoprofen alone or in combination with other therapeutic regimens leads to a decrease in pl...
This study aimed to evaluate whether combined oral oxycodone hydrochloride controlled-release tablets plus paracetamol and tramadol hydrochloride tablets are more effective than epidural analgesia for...
A Comparison of the Analgesic Efficacy and Safety of Once Daily Tramadol OAD Tablets to Twice Daily Tramadol BID for the Treatment of Osteoarthritis of the Knee (Extension Protocol) and Open Label Safety Follow-Up
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the long-term safety (up to one year) of Tramadol Once-A-Day (OAD) tablets at the highest doses: 200-400 mg
The purpose of this study is to compare the administration of 1 unit dose of 50 mg tramadol perorally given in 3 unit dosages versus tramadol IV given in 3 unit dosage of 35 mg during the ...
Intravenous patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) is a popular technique for postoperative pain management. Although several drugs are recognized as effective therapeutic options, optimal sel...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the combination of paracetamol (acetaminophen) and other NSAIDs with or without weak opioids can give synergistic analgesic effect.
