Abstract

Results of complex treatment of patients with post-traumatic and entrapment neuropathies with Melback (meloxicam) in the post-operative period have been analyzed. We have been using Melback (meloxicam) to reduce post-operative pain syndrome in our patients. 60 patients who had undergone surgical interventions were divided into two groups: the first group — therapeutic (35 patients) who were receiving Melback in post-operative period; the second group — controls (25 patients) who were receiving analgin. The following results (follow up to 10 days after surgery) were obtained in the therapeutic group: there was a significant reduction of pain syndrome in larger proportion of patients and its reduction in earlier terms. The percentage of patients with good results in therapeutic group equaled 68%, the ones with satisfied results — 32%. Accordingly, 57% of good results and 43% of satisfied results were obtained in controls.
