The attached document looks at several topical issues in pain management. In the words of editor Dr David Gronow
“The first paper selected for this edition comes from Sydney researchers who systematically reviewed the limited data on pharmacotherapies for sciatica pain. The state of outpatient services in Australia for patients with persistent pain is also described. Danish researchers conducted a systematic review of intranasal (IN) fentanyl for acute pain, but could not form any firm conclusions based on the available data. We conclude this edition with a study showing that the phosphodiesterase (PDE)-IV inhibitor drotaverine was as effective and as safe as diclofenac in acute renal colic.”
