ABSTRACT
The article comments on a study which states that nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) provide better pain relief than do opioids for acute renal colic. Renal colic is considered to be one of the most painful acute conditions presenting to acute care settings. Although narcotics are widely used for various painful conditions, NSAIDs are a logical treatment option for renal colic because of their ability to decrease intrarenal pressure and prevent ureteral spasm. The adverse effects of a single dose of an NSAID in patients with undifferentiated abdominal pain are probably minimal, but direct studies of this effect are lacking.
