SUMMARY In a double-blind trial three dosage strengths of piritramide, 5, 10 and 20 mg, were compared with morphine 15 mg in the treatment of postoperative pain. Pain intensity was assessed by the patient, and pain relief and side effects by a nurse-assessor. A iog-dose response relationship was established for piritramide. Piritramide 20 mg was shown to be equivalent to morphine 15 mg in analgesic effect. From this and previous studies of piritramide, it appears that piritramide has a greater…

Emetic effects of morphine and piritramide.

TLDR
Opioid-induced emesis was observed in about one-third of the patients using morphine and piritramide by patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) for PCA and the incidence of vomiting was one-half of that and potential differences in the occurrence of vomiting during PCA therapy between these micro-opioid receptor agonists can be excluded.

A Clinical Comparison of Orally Administered Aspirin, Dextropropoxyphene and Pentazocine in the Treatment of Post-Operative Pain

TLDR
It is concluded from these results that pentazocine should be the oral analgesic of choice in the treatment of post-operative pain.

TLDR
Pentazocine 50 mg by mouth is suitable for the relief of postoperative pain and may have particular advantages in allowing patients to become ambulant in the early postoperative period.

Piritramide—A New Long-acting Analgesic

TLDR
The drug was found to have a potency similar to that of morphine and a mean duration of action of greater than 6½ hours (morphine 4 ½ hours), and appeared to exert a slight anti-emetic effect.

[Piritramide : A critical review].

TLDR
There is little evidence to support the widespread use of piritramide as first-line opioid analgesic for postoperative pain management in Germany, and especially lacking are in-depth studies about its mechanisms of action, receptor pharmacology, dose-response relationships and clinical dosing regimens.

Six potent analgesic drugs

TLDR
A trial has been undertaken of six potent analgesics in circumstances in which consistency could be improved and all patients were retained for 2 hours in a recovery ward adjacent to the theatre.

Opioid-induced hyperalgesia in patients after surgery: a systematic review and a meta-analysis.

TLDR
It is suggested that high intra-operative doses of remifentanil are associated with small but significant increases in acute pain after surgery.

Effect of Perioperative Systemic &agr;2 Agonists on Postoperative Morphine Consumption and Pain Intensity: Systematic Review and Meta-analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials

TLDR
Perioperative systemic &agr;2 agonists decrease postoperative opioid consumption, pain intensity, and nausea, and recovery times are not prolonged.

Population pharmacokinetics of piritramide in surgical patients.

TLDR
Piritramide is distributed extensively and eliminated slowly and allows for intermittent bolus administration even when constant effect compartment concentrations are desirable, e.g., for PLA.

TLDR
Piritramide provided good or excellent relief of pain in most cases and had a long duration of effective action in postoperative treatment of patients who had undergone gall‐bladder operations, particularly for postoperative analgesia.

A study of aspirin and nepenthe.

TLDR
In a total of 1,063 drug administrations there was a marked difference between investigators' scores and evidence of improvement with experience, and investigators' opinions were a more sensitive index than ward staff or patients' opinions.
