Pain Management Interventions for Hip Fracture
Effectiveness of Systemic Analgesics for Acute Pain: Trials, Results, and Conclusions
This slide presents the data available about the use of systemic analgesics specifically in the population of elderly patients with hip fracture. It is important to note that no studies examined the effectiveness or safety of the most commonly used analgesics, both non-narcotic and opioid, in this population. Two of the interventions, parecoxib and metamizole, are not available for use in the United States.
The evidence is insufficient to make any conclusions about the effectiveness or safety of the presented interventions or any other modes of systemic analgesia.
