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 randomized controlled double-blind trial comparing piritramide and morphine for analgesia after hysterectomy
TLDR
In this setting the two agents are equally effective and show a similar profile of side-effects.
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.
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.
Postoperative pain control following remifentanil‐based anaesthesia for major abdominal surgery
TLDR
Patients undergoing major abdominal surgery using remifentanil‐based anaesthesia were randomly allocated in a double‐blind manner to receive an intravenous bolus of fentanyl, buprenorphine, morphine or piritramide 20 min before the end of surgery, providing effective postoperative pain relief and transition to routine PCA and did not compromise recovery.
Oral flurbiprofen for post-operative pain
TLDR
A double-blind single dose study involving 152 women to assess the efficiency of oral flurbiprofen in the treatment of post-operative pain gave satisfactory pain relief, with a minimal incidence of side-efects.
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.

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.
