ABSTRACT
The article cites a study on the benefits and disadvantages of nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAID) and opioids for management of pain in acute renal colic. Meta-analysis of six randomized controlled trials found that patients who received NSAIDs had lower patient-rated pain on visual analogue scales than did those who received opioids. In patients with acute renal colic, non-steroidal antiinflammatory drugs reduce pain scores and need for rescue analgesics more than opioids and are associated with less vomiting.
