Purpose of review Postoperative pain remains poorly treated in many patients. One reason is the inadequate use of nonopioid analgesics. This review examines the most recent findings on nonopioid analgesics and how these translate into clinical practice. Recent findings Commonly used nonopioid analgesics are paracetamol, NSAIDs and metamizol (dipyrone). For paracetamol, the efficacy is obviously inferior to NSAIDs and the risk of adverse events might have been underestimated in the past. For… Expand
NSAIDs in the Treatment of Postoperative Pain
TLDR
NSAIDs have been shown to increase patient satisfaction and decrease opioid requirements, minimizing opiate-induced adverse events, and they have no increased incidence of adverse effects during the acute postoperative period. Expand
Multimodal Analgesia, Current Concepts, and Acute Pain Considerations
TLDR
Overall, a multimodal analgesic approach should be used when treating postoperative pain, as it can potentially reduce side effects and provide the benefit of treating pain through different cellular pathways. Expand
Metamizole for Postoperative Pain Therapy in Infants Younger than 1 Year
  • R. Sümpelmann, M. Fieler, +4 authors Nils Dennhardt
  • Medicine
  • European journal of pediatric surgery : official journal of Austrian Association of Pediatric Surgery ... [et al] = Zeitschrift fur Kinderchirurgie
  • 2017
TLDR
Single intravenous doses of metamizole used for prevention or treatment of postoperative pain were safe in more than 300 infants younger than 1 year and the sample size and follow-up were not sufficient to detect agranulocytosis. Expand
Paracetamol, non‐steroidal anti‐inflammatory drugs and glucocorticoids for postoperative pain: A protocol for a systematic review with meta‐analysis and trial sequential analysis
TLDR
A systematic review is expected to uncover pros and cons of the addition of glucocorticoid to the basic standard regimen of paracetamol and NSAIDs for postoperative analgesia. Expand
Low-dose SoluMatrix diclofenac: a review of safety across two Phase III studies in patients with acute and osteoarthritis pain
TLDR
The safety results from the Phase III studies indicate that all dosing regimens of low-dose SoluMatrix diclofenac up to 12 weeks are generally well tolerated. Expand
Post-Operative Pain: Mechanisms and Management
TLDR
The mechanism and the management of post-operative pain, along with shining some light upon the recent advances are understood, making the decrease in opioids need a priority. Expand
Metamizole vs. ibuprofen at home after day case surgery: A double-blind randomised controlled noninferiority trial
TLDR
Paracetamol/metamizole and paracetaml/ibuprofen are equally effective in treatment of acute postoperative pain at home after ambulatory surgery with comparable patient satisfaction levels. Expand
Postoperative pain after tonsillectomy - the value of standardized analgesic treatment protocols.
TLDR
Both treatment protocols yielded in a high degree of patient satisfaction but dissatisfactory pain relief following TE, suggesting metamizole can be recommended as a basic medication allowing for improved pain relief. Expand
Metamizole for postoperative pain therapy in 1177 children: A prospective, multicentre, observational, postauthorisation safety study
TLDR
Single intravenous doses of metamizole used for the prevention or treatment of postoperative pain were well tolerated in more than 1000 children aged up to 6 years and the probability of serious ADRs (haemodynamic, anaphylactic or respiratory reactions) is lower than 0.3%. Expand
Metamizole/dipyrone for the relief of cancer pain: A systematic review and evidence-based recommendations for clinical practice
TLDR
Dipyrone can be recommended for the treatment of cancer pain as an alternative to other non-opioids either alone or in combination with opioids, and can be preferred over non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs due to the presumably favorable side effect profile in long-term use. Expand

[Metamizole in postoperative pain management].
TLDR
Based on the current literature, metamizole deserves a role in the management of post-operative pain in the Netherlands and seems to be a safe and effective drug for acute pain management especially when compared with NSAIDs. Expand
[Pediatric perioperative systemic pain therapy: Austrian interdisciplinary recommendations on pediatric perioperative pain management].
TLDR
The rare but severe side effect of agranulocytosis does not justify a general rejection for short-term perioperative administration and the complementary use of opioids is also appropriate for children of all age groups. Expand
Intravenous Paracetamol Reduces Postoperative Opioid Consumption after Orthopedic Surgery: A Systematic Review of Clinical Trials
TLDR
It is concluded that postoperative intravenous paracetamol is a safe and effective adjunct to opioid after orthopedic surgery, but at present there is no data to decide whether par acetamol reduces opioid related adverse effects or not. Expand
Intravenous acetaminophen and intravenous ketorolac for management of pediatric surgical pain: a literature review.
TLDR
This article provides a review of the literature of IV ketorolac and IV acetaminophen regarding their pharmacology, analgesic efficacy, limitations, and practical considerations, with a focus on patients 16 years of age and younger. Expand
Postoperative pain control.
TLDR
Although traditionally the mainstay of postoperative analgesia is opioid based, increasingly more evidence exists to support a multimodal approach with the intent to reduce opioid side effects (such as nausea and ileus) and improve pain scores. Expand
Paracetamol and selective and non-selective non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs for the reduction in morphine-related side-effects after major surgery: a systematic review.
TLDR
The MTC found that there is a decrease in 24 h morphine consumption when paracetamol, NSAID, or COX-2 inhibitors are given in addition to PCA morphine after surgery, with no clear difference between them. Expand
Effects of acetaminophen on morphine side-effects and consumption after major surgery: meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials.
TLDR
Acetaminophen combined with patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) with morphine induced a significant morphine-sparing effect but did not change the incidence of morphine-related adverse effects in the postoperative period. Expand
Intravenous acetaminophen: a review of pharmacoeconomic science for perioperative use.
TLDR
A comprehensive review of the pharmacoeconomics of IV acetaminophen, a new drug useful as part of a multimodal analgesic approach, indicates this drug has the potential to improve outcomes and hospital efficiency. Expand
The Role of COX-2 Inhibitors in the Treatment of Postoperative Pain
  • S. Schug
  • Medicine
  • Journal of cardiovascular pharmacology

TLDR
Overall, COX-2 inhibitors offer a number of advantages over classical NSAIDs in the postoperative pain setting, but require the same caution with regard to renal effects. Expand
Perioperative analgesia in pediatric surgery
TLDR
The role of regional techniques in the treatment of pain after pediatric surgery is growing in line with the developments in adults; the emphasis here is more on peripheral techniques too. Expand
