BACKGROUND: Preventive analgesia using non-opioid analgesic strategies is recognized as a pathway to improve postoperative pain control while minimizing opioid-related side effects. Ketorolac is a nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drug frequently used to treat postoperative pain. However, the optimal dose and route of administration for systemic single dose ketorolac to prevent postoperative pain is not well defined. We performed a quantitative systematic review to evaluate the efficacy of a single…

Single-dose Systemic Acetaminophen to Prevent Postoperative Pain: A Meta-analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials
TLDR
Systemic acetaminophen, when used as a single-dose preventive regimen, is an effective intervention to reduce postoperative pain and reduces postoperative nausea and/or vomiting.
Perioperative Systemic Magnesium to Minimize Postoperative Pain: A Meta-analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials
TLDR
Systemic administration of perioperative magnesium reduces postoperative pain and opioid consumption and should be considered as a strategy to mitigate postoperativePain in surgical patients.
Analgesic Effects of Locally Administered Ketorolac-based Analgesics After Breast Surgery: A Meta-Analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials
TLDR
Locally administered ketorolac-based analgesics decreased postoperative pain in breast surgery patients, and the effect of local ket orolac was better than local bupivacaine, demonstrating considerable local infiltration during pain management after breast surgery.
Multimodal Pain Management for Cesarean Delivery: A Double-Blinded, Placebo-Controlled, Randomized Clinical Trial.
TLDR
This perioperative multimodal pain regimen did not reduce opioid use in 48 hours after elective cesarean delivery, and smokers and patients with a history of drug use had higher median postoperative opiate use and earlier administration.
Ketorolac: its role as part of a multimodal analgesic regimen.
TLDR
The authors reported that there was a lack of evidence in the literature that the 30-mg dose of ketorolac offered significant benefits on clinical pain outcomes when administered for the prevention (versus treatment) of postoperative pain, and concluded that IM administration of ket orolac was superior to IV.
Use of Ketorolac After Outpatient Urogynecologic Surgery: A Randomized Control Trial
TLDR
Intravenous ketorolac administered after outpatient transvaginal surgery did not result in a reduction of pain scores or total morphine consumption, and larger randomized control trials are needed to validate these findings.
Non-opioid analgesics in adults after major surgery: systematic review with network meta-analysis of randomized trials
TLDR
Efficacy was best with three AOM used alone (&agr;-2 agonists, NSAIDs and COX-2 inhibitors) and least with tramadol and acetaminophen, and the paucity of severe adverse effects data did not allow assessment of efficacy-safety balance.
Effect of combining tramadol and morphine in adult surgical patients: a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized trials.
TLDR
It is found that there is no significant clinical benefit from the combination of i.v. tramadol and morphine after surgery, and a limited but significant postoperative morphine-sparing effect is found.
Comparison of Preemptive Analgesic Effects of Intravenous Ketorolac and Oral Pregabalin in Patients Undergoing Mandibular Fracture Surgery: A Randomized Clinical Trial
TLDR
The oral administration of pregabalin 150 mg one hour preoperatively was more effective than the intravenous administration of ketorolac 30 mg in relieving postoperative pain.

Ketorolac Use for Postoperative Pain Management Following Lumbar Decompression Surgery: A Prospective, Randomized, Double-Blinded, Placebo-Controlled Trial
TLDR
Intravenous Ketorolac seems to be a safe and effective analgesic agent following multilevel lumbar decompressive laminectomy and patients can expect lowermorphine requirements and better pain scores throughout their postoperative course.
Ketorolac for early postoperative analgesia.
Single-dose ketorolac and pethidine in acute postoperative pain: systematic review with meta-analysis.
TLDR
Information on summed pain intensity or pain relief outcomes over 4-6 h was extracted and converted to dichotomous information to produce the number of patients with at least 50% pain relief, which was used to calculate the relative benefit and number-needed-to-treat (NNT) for one patient to achieve at least half of pain relief.
Ketorolac: its role as part of a multimodal analgesic regimen.
TLDR
The authors reported that there was a lack of evidence in the literature that the 30-mg dose of ketorolac offered significant benefits on clinical pain outcomes when administered for the prevention (versus treatment) of postoperative pain, and concluded that IM administration of ket orolac was superior to IV.
Prospective double-blind study of effect of ketorolac administration after laparoscopic urologic surgery.
TLDR
Keterolac decreases the subjective perception of pain after laparoscopic urologic surgery and it is suggested that ketorolac administration decreases the amount of narcotic usage as well.
Does ketorolac produce preemptive analgesic effects in laparoscopic ambulatory surgery patients?
TLDR
Clinical, the preemptive administration of ketorolac to patients undergoing laparoscopic gynecologic surgery did not demonstrate preemptive analgesic effects and the total fentanyl use and postoperative oral analgesic requirements were analyzed.
Does ketorolac produce preemptive analgesic effects in laparoscopic ambulatory surgery patients
TLDR
Clinical, the preemptive administration of ketorolac to patients undergoing laparoscopic gynecologic surgery did not demonstrate preemptive analgesic effects and the total fentanyl use and postoperative oral analgesic requirements were analyzed.
Preoperative ketorolac administration has no preemptive analgesic effect for minor orthopaedic surgery
TLDR
It is concluded that the preoperative administration of ketorolac did not provide a significant preemptive analgesic benefit with regard to postoperative pain relief and opioid dose‐sparing effect.
