NSAIDs for Analgesia in Patients with Fracture: Evidence for Use

Last updated: June 3, 2008
Product Line: Rapid Response
Research Type: Drug
Result type: Report

Question

  1. What is the evidence that the use of NSAIDS for analgesia will delay healing or increase the incidence of non-union in patients with fractures?
  2. Is there any evidence that multiple doses of an NSAID versus a single dose of an NSAID have an effect on healing time or incidence of non-union in patients with fractures?
