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…

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 study of strong oral analgesics: the relief of postoperative pain using dextromoramide, pentazocine and bezitramide.

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 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.
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.
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.
Amantadine, a N-Methyl-d-Aspartate Receptor Antagonist, Does Not Enhance Postoperative Analgesia in Women Undergoing Abdominal Hysterectomy
TLDR
It is concluded that a preoperative dose of 200 mg amantadine IV fails to enhance postoperative analgesia in patients undergoing elective abdominal hysterectomy.

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.
