Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Pain 'Right Now' [ Time Frame: 24 hours after the end of surgery ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Visual analog scale score for pain on a scale from 0 = None to 10 = Worst.

  • Morphine Equivalents of Concomitant Pain Medication [ Time Frame: 24 hours after the end of surgery ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The morphine equivalent is a unit of measure to compare the efficacy of different types of opioids (narcotics). The patients were allowed to take additional pain medication in addition to either study drug or placebo. This outcome measure reports the amount of morphine (in mg) equivalent to the amount of concomitant pain medication used by the patient.
