ABSTRACT

Aim: The aim of this study was to assess the analgesic efficacy of transdermal diclofenac patch in patients undergoing elective intra-alveolar tooth extraction. Materials and methods: A preliminary prospective clinical study was conducted among 30 patients selected for elective tooth extraction in either maxillary or mandibular arch. After extraction by a single qualified Oral surgeon, a blinded operator applies a diclofenac transdermal patch following which pain was assessed using a Visual Analog Scale (VAS) and the consumption of rescue analgesia post-operatively. Results: The post-operative VAS score to assess pain had a mean ± SD VAS score of 3.5± 2.271. n = 11 (36.66%) patients needed the consumption of rescue analgesia post-operatively among the study population. Conclusion: From this study, we conclude that transdermal diclofenac patch is a promising modality to achieve analgesia in patients undergoing tooth extraction with reduced effects of systemic toxicity.

Keywords: Transdermal patch, Drug delivery, Diclofenac, Extraction, Post-operative pain.
