Abstract

The postoperative pain score on the visual analogue scale (0 to 10) fell with nalbuphine from 7.14 +/- 3.45 to 2.03 +/- 1.25 and with tramadol from 7.81 +/- 2.85 to 1.57 +/- 1.40. There were no significant differences between the two groups. PCA supplements were requested 21.7 times in the nalbuphine group and 27.3 times in the tramadol group. General well-being of the patients on a 4-point scale (0 to 3) improved for the nalbuphine group from 0.70 +/- 0.92 to 2.11 +/- 0.49 and for the tramadol group from 0.62 +/- 0.67 to 2.33 +/- 0.50, which was significantly better in the nalbuphine group after 45, 60, and 90 min.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)
