Abstract
Postoperative pain is one of the most common complications. The aim of this study is to evaluate the analgesic efficacies of dexketoprofen trometamol and two different dosages of dexketoprofen trometamol + thiocolchicoside combination in the impacted third molar tooth operation. This randomized, double-blind study included 75 patients who did not have any disease. Patients were assigned to 3 groups. Group 1 received 25 mg dexketoprofen trometamol + 4 mg thiocholchicoside, Group 2 received 25 mg dexketoprofen trometamol +8 mg thiocholchicoside, and Group 3 received 25 mg dexketoprofen trometamol. In each group, the analgesic medication was administered twice a day, starting 1 hour before the operation. The level of pain was assessed with VAS. Patient age varied from 18 to 36 years. Of all patients, 59.2% (n=42) were female and 40.8% (n=29) were male. Drug side effects were observed in 28.17% (n=20) of the patients. Mean 24th hour VAS score was lower in dexketoprofen trometamol + 8 mg thiocolchicoside group compared to dexketoprofen trometamol group (p<0.05). There was no statistically significant difference between the three groups regarding drug side effects (p>0.05). Dexketoprofen trometamol + 8 mg thiocolchicoside combination has higher analgesic efficacy compared to dexketoprofen trometamol. More studies are needed to interpret the analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects of thiocholchicoside + dexketoprofen trometamol combination.
