A comparative study using injectable aceclofenac versus injectable diclofenac in postoperative analgesia

Abstract: Optimal pain treatment is a requirement for early post-operative recovery, particularly in patients undergoing laparoscopic abdominal procedures, as these patients experience significant pain, which is most intense within the first 24 hours. Laparoscopic surgery is a principal technique for minimally invasive surgery of the abdomen, employed in procedures across multiple surgical disciplines.
Methods: After receiving ethical committee certification and informal consent, 60 patients undergoing laparoscopic abdominal procedures between the ages of 25 and 55 were chosen for the study. 30 patients were randomly assigned to receive intramuscular injections of Aceclofenac, while the remaining 30 patients were treated with intramuscular injections of Diclofenac. The data obtained was analysed using the SPSS software version 18.0, and the analgesia data was equivalent in both groups in the postoperative period. The probability value (p-value) was used to establish the level of significance, with p0.05 being considered significant and p0.01 being considered severely unimportant.
Conclusion: The study concludes that Aceclofenac in injectable form is superior to Diclofenac in providing severe post-operative pain management in individuals with lower limb fractures. Additionally, it has a better tolerability profile. It has a lengthy half-life. As a result of the current investigation, we can fairly conclude that injection aceclofenac has a clear role in post-operative analgesia due to its extended duration of action (18-24 hours) and good anaesthetic quality.
