Inclusion criteria
The factors, or reasons, that allow a person to participate in a clinical study.
Show details

- Patients who had undergone an uncomplicated ACL reconstruction procedure and were in
satisfactory health were included in the study

"moderate to severe" pain on the categorical scale within 8 hours of the completion
of the surgical procedure to be included

Exclusion criteria

Show details

- Patient was scheduled to undergo any other surgical procedure, along with the
orthopedic procedure, that was expected to produce a greater degree of surgical
trauma than the orthopedic procedure alone

- The patient was undergoing bilateral knee arthroscopy

- The patient used conventional NSAIDs, COX-2 inhibitors, or Tramadol during the 6
hours preceding surgery, during surgery or subsequent to the end of surgery, until
randomization

- The patient received oxaprozin or piroxicam within one week prior to randomization

- The patient was required to take muscle relaxants, tricyclic antidepressants,
tranquilizers, sedatives, hypnotics and neuroleptics, in the post operative period
