[Comparison of indomethacin and ketobemidone as analgesics in acute cholecystitis].

Abstract

In an open, randomized prospective clinical trial the analgesic effect of indomethacin and ketobemidon was compared in 67 patients with acute cholecystitis (28 received 5 mg ketobemidon and 39 received 50 mg indomethacin). Both drugs showed a good and significant pain relief, exhibiting no significant difference in the analgesic effect and no serious adverse reactions. It was concluded that indomethacin administered intravenously is an alternative to ketobemidon intravenously in the treatment of pain resulting from acute cholecystitis and may offer some advantages.
