Recent evidence has suggested an association between postoperative non‐steroidal anti‐inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and increased operation‐specific complications. This study aimed to determine the safety profile following gastrointestinal surgery across a multicentre setting in the UK. 
Safety and efficacy of non‐steroidal anti‐inflammatory drugs to reduce ileus after colorectal surgery
Assessment of the role of non‐steroidal anti‐inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) for reducing ileus after surgery found them to be effective in reducing adverse events and prolonged hospital stay.
Postoperative non‐steroidal anti‐inflammatory drugs and anastomotic leakage after gastrointestinal anastomoses: Systematic review and meta‐analysis
A systematic review and meta‐analysis aimed to determine the correlation between the use of NSAIDs and anastomotic leakage after gastrointestinal surgery.
Nonsteroidal anti‐inflammatory drugs reduce the time to recovery of gut function after elective colorectal surgery: a systematic review and meta‐analysis
A systematic review and meta‐analysis aimed to determine the benefit of NSAIDs for recovery of postoperative gut function in patients undergoing elective colorectal surgery.
Nonsteroidal anti‐inflammatory drugs and anastomotic dehiscence after colorectal surgery: a meta‐analysis
A meta‐analysis was conducted to evaluate the association of NSAIDs with anastomotic leakage after colorectal surgery and found an increasing concern on the impaired wound healing of anastOMosis associated with NSAID use.
Perioperative Nonsteroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs (NSAID) Administration and Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) in Major Gastrointestinal Surgery
Administration of NSAIDs in the early postoperative period is safe in selected patients following major gastrointestinal surgery, and this finding was consistent in subgroup analyses by NSAID dosage and timing.
Multicentre prospective cohort study of body mass index and postoperative complications following gastrointestinal surgery
The aim of this study was to determine whether increasing body mass index (BMI) is an independent risk factor for development of major postoperative complications.
Safety of Nonsteroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs in Major Gastrointestinal Surgery: A Prospective, Multicenter Cohort Study
Early use of postoperative NSAIDs was not associated with an increase in major complications following gastrointestinal surgery, and propensity matching with multivariable logistic regression was used to produce odds ratios and 95 % confidence intervals.


Risk of anastomotic leakage with non‐steroidal anti‐inflammatory drugs in colorectal surgery
With the implementation of multimodal analgesia regimens in fast‐track surgery programmes, non‐steroidal anti‐inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are being prescribed routinely. However, doubts have been
Cyclo‐oxygenase 2 inhibitors and the risk of anastomotic leakage after fast‐track colonic surgery
The rate of anastomotic leakage in a series of patients who had colonic surgery over a 9‐year period with or without use of a cyclo‐oxygenase inhibitor for postoperative analgesia was determined.
Effects of a selective cyclo‐oxygenase 2 inhibitor on colonic anastomotic and skin wound integrity
Selective inhibitors of inducible cyclo‐oxygenase (COX‐2) are of potential benefit in the perioperative period for both their analgesic and, perhaps, antineoplastic actions. However, their effects on
Prehospital Use of Nonsteroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) Is Associated With a Reduced Incidence of Trauma-Induced Coagulopathy
Findings provide further evidence to a potential leak between TIC and inflammation, andNSAID use before admission for severe injury is associated with a reduced incidence of TIC.
Postoperative Nonsteroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs and Risk of Anastomotic Leak: Meta-analysis of Clinical and Experimental Studies
Emerging data strongly suggest that postoperative NSAIDs are linked to anastomotic leak, although most studies are flawed and may be describing pre-existing selection bias.
Postoperative use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs in patients with anastomotic leakage requiring reoperation after colorectal resection: cohort study based on prospective data
Diclofenac treatment could result in an increased proportion of patients with anastomotic leakage after colorectal surgery, and Cyclo-oxygenase-2 selective NSAIDs should be used with caution after colOREctal resections with primary anastsomosis.
Increased Risk for Complications After Colorectal Surgery With Selective Cyclo-oxygenase 2 Inhibitor Etoricoxib
Etoricoxib increased the number of patients with postoperative complications and should be considered carefully in colorectal surgery.
Paracetamol and selective and non-selective non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) for the reduction of morphine-related side effects after major surgery: a systematic review.
There does not appear to be a strong case for recommending routine addition of any of the three non-opioids to PCA morphine in the 24 hours immediately after surgery, or for favouring one drug class above the others.
Cardiovascular events associated with rofecoxib in a colorectal adenoma chemoprevention trial.
Among patients with a history of colorectal adenomas, the use of rofecoxib was associated with an increased cardiovascular risk, and cardiovascular mortality was similar in the two groups.
