Abstract

The therapeutic effects of Amfenac sodium (50mg) were compared with those of Diclofenac sodium (50mg) on postexodontic pain. The following results were obtained : 1) The analgetics were treated for 102 patients with pain after extraction of wisdom tooth. 47 cases were treated with Amfenac sodium (A group) and 55 cases were treated with Diclofenac sodium (D group). 2) There was no statistically significant difference between the two groups for the back ground parameters considered. 3) According to both the doctor's and the patient's judgement of the pain improvement rating, there was no significant difference between the two groups. 4) According to a numerical judgement, in the pain improvement rating and time until the appearance of effect after administration, the A group was significantly superior to the D group. 5) There was no significant difference between the two groups in duration of successive effect after administration. 6) There was no significant difference between the two groups in total effects and side effects and total usefulness.
