Background. Postoperative sore throat is one of the major complaints of general anesthesia in the postanesthesia care unit. This prospective study investigated the preventive effect of ketorolac tromethamine spray in postendotracheal-intubation-induced sore throat after general anesthesia. Methods. Surgical patients undergoing general anesthesia with endotracheal intubation were recruited from a medical center. Patients were randomly assigned to group K (treated with 5% ketorolac tromethamine…

Ketorolac tromethamine pretreatment suppresses sufentanil-induced cough during general anesthesia induction: a prospective randomized controlled trial
TLDR
Pretreatment with intravenous ketorolac tromethamine can significantly reduce the incidence of sufentanil-induced cough during induction of general anesthesia, which can also significantly reduce postoperative incision pain and restlessness during the recovery period.
Evaluation of Medicated Pharyngeal Pack for Prevention of Postoperative Sore Throat following Nasal Septal Surgery
TLDR
Use of soluble aspirin or ketorolac impregnated pharyngeal packing significantly reduced frequency of post-operative sore throat, dysphagia, hoarseness and cough as compared to simple normal saline impregnation packing among patients undergoing nasal surgery.
Comparison of prophylactic effect of topical Alchemilla vulgaris in glycerine versus that of dexamethasone on postoperative sore throat after tracheal intubation using a double-lumen endobronchial tube: a randomized controlled study
TLDR
Alchemilla vulgaris in glycerine did not significantly differ from dexamethasone for preventing sore throat and hoarseness owing to intubation, and Neo Mucosal Activator® suppresses inflammatory response, possibly relieving sore throat.
Pharmacological Interventions for Post-operative Sore Throat (POST): A Network Meta-analysis
TLDR
Ketorolac tromethamine was the most effective and significantly better than all other treatments in reducing POST rates, and the following treatments were found to be significantly effective in reducingPOST.
Clinical Research on Prevention and Treatment of Respiratory Tract Complications With Acupoint Application After Operation Under General Anesthesia
TLDR
The results showed that patients starting using acupoint application before operation could significantly reduce the incidence of postoperative respiratory tract complications, and the effects lasted for up to 24 hours.
Efficacy of Different Preemptive Analgesia on Postoperative Analgesia, Oxidative Stress, and Inflammatory Response after Gynecological Laparoscopic Surgery
TLDR
Oxycodone, pentazocine, and ketorolac tromethamine are effective and safe in inhibiting postoperative pain and the generation of inflammatory factors and relieving inflammatory state in gynecological laparoscopic pre-emptive analgesia.
Effect of using the Suction Above Cuff Endotracheal Tube (SACETT) on postoperative respiratory complications in rhinoplasty: a randomized prospective controlled trial
TLDR
It is suggested that using the SACETT in rhinoplasty reduces the incidence of postoperative respiratory complications as well asThe incidence of agitation, sore throat, swallowing difficulty, and PONV.

TLDR
It is suggested that using the SACETT in rhinoplasty reduces the incidence of postoperative respiratory complications as well asThe incidence of agitation, sore throat, swallowing difficulty, and PONV.
Postoperative Complications, Patient Safety, and Comfort of the Oral Fiberoptic Bronchoscopy-guided Intubation Compared with the Oral laryngoscope Intubation
TLDR
A statistically significant difference was found between groups according to patient safety, measured by the number of anaesthetists involved, in favour of the fiberoptic intubation device, and a trend was pointing to increased pain in the mouth and throat P=0.053, when intubated with the laryngoscope.

Ketorolac reduces postoperative narcotic requirements.
TLDR
Ketorolac exhibits significant opiate-sparing effects in the immediate postoperative period without introducing additional morbidity to pediatric surgical procedures.
Quality improvement in anesthetic practice--incidence of sore throat after using small tracheal tube.
TLDR
The use of small tube in intubating the trachea, together with other measures such as lubricating the tube with water soluble jelly, careful airway instrumentation, intubation only when patient was fully relaxed, careful suctioning technique, and extubation when thetracheal tube cuff was fully deflated, have dramatic effects on minimizing the incidence of postoperative hoarseness and sore throat.
Complaints of sore throat after tracheal intubation: a prospective evaluation
TLDR
Main factors associated with throat complaints were female sex, history of smoking or lung disease, duration of anaesthesia, postoperative nausea, bloodstain on the endotracheal tube and natural teeth.
Postoperative sore throat: more answers than questions.
TLDR
In this issue of Anesthesia & Analgesia, 4 articles describe simple prophylactic measures that seem to significantly reduce the incidence of postoperative sore throat.
Intranasal ketorolac for acute postoperative pain
TLDR
Intranasal ketorolac was well tolerated and provided effective pain relief within 20 minutes with reduced opioid analgesia use and may have more relevance for use in outpatient settings and ambulatory surgery or fast-track surgical procedures.
Ketorolac. A reappraisal of its pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic properties and therapeutic use in pain management.
TLDR
Ketorolac is a strong analgesic with a tolerability profile which resembles that of other NSAIDs when used in accordance with current dosage guidelines, this drug provides a useful alternative, or adjuvant, to opioids in patients with moderate to severe pain.
The Size of Endotracheal Tube and Sore Throat after Surgery: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
TLDR
The meta-analysis suggests that patients under general anesthesia with a smaller size of ETT were associated with a lower incidence of POST in female patients, and more studies with adequate numbers of patients were warranted.
Intranasal Ketorolac
TLDR
In adult patients with acute pain following major surgery, intranasal ketorolac 31.5mg three or four times daily for ≤5 days was generally well tolerated and most adverse events in clinical trials were considered to be of mild severity and transient in nature.
[Evaluation of factors associated with postoperative sore throat].
TLDR
Six associated factors for postoperative sore throat were identified in patients undergoing general anesthesia in this study and were significantly identified as the factors with multivariate studies.
