Norspan Versus Oxycontin as Postoperative Painkiller to Proximal Extracapsular Fractures of the Femur

2014-08-27 03:19:50 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Effective treatment of pain after hip fractures is very important but difficult. It is often an old patient who has many adverse effects with the use of morphine.

This is a randomized pilot study where the investigators want to compare Norspan plaster to Oxycontin tablets to patients with particular kind of hip fractures. The investigators will evaluate mobilization, pain, use of rescue medicine, adverse effects and length of stay. No clinical study about the effect of Norspan as acute painkiller has never been done before. Can the investigators get the patients mobilized earlier with less adverse effects?

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A pharmaceutical preparation that combines buprenorphine, an OPIOID ANALGESIC with naloxone, a NARCOTIC ANTAGONIST to reduce the potential for NARCOTIC DEPENDENCE in the treatment of pain. It may also be used for OPIATE SUBSTITUTION THERAPY.

A nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agent with potent analgesic and antiarthritic properties. It has been shown to be effective in the treatment of OSTEOARTHRITIS; RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS; ankylosing SPONDYLITIS; and in the alleviation of postoperative pain (PAIN, POSTOPERATIVE).

Pain during the period after surgery.

A narcotic analgesic that can be used for the relief of most types of moderate to severe pain, including postoperative pain and the pain of labor. Prolonged use may lead to dependence of the morphine type; withdrawal symptoms appear more rapidly than with morphine and are of shorter duration.

Abdominal symptoms after removal of the GALLBLADDER. The common postoperative symptoms are often the same as those present before the operation, such as COLIC, bloating, NAUSEA, and VOMITING. There is pain on palpation of the right upper quadrant and sometimes JAUNDICE. The term is often used, inaccurately, to describe such postoperative symptoms not due to gallbladder removal.
