- The Primary Outcome Was Total Pain Relief Over 4 Hours (TOPAR4), Comparing a Single Dose of Sildenafil 100 mg to a Single Dose of Placebo. [ Time Frame: Hours 1, 2, 3 and 4. ]The Total Pain Relief (TOPAR) Scale rates the level of pain relief on a scale of 0=None, 1=Mild, 2=Moderate, 3=Excellent, 4=Complete. The TOPAR scale was completed each hour after administration of study drug for a total of 4 hours. The 4 hourly scores were summed for a final TOPAR4 score that ranged between 0 and 16, with higher values indicating greater pain relief over time. Missing TOPAR scores after the first hour were imputed using the last-observation-carried-forward approach.
- Improvement in Pain Severity Determined by Visual Analog Scale (VAS). [ Time Frame: Each hour of the study (0, 1, 2, 3, 4). ]The Visual Analog Scale (VAS) assesses pain intensity. The scale is 100 mm long; the extremes of the scale are to the left, "no pain" and to the right, "worst pain I have ever felt." The VAS score is determined by measuring the distance (in mm) from the left side of the scale to the point that the patient marked. The score ranges from 0 to 100, with higher values indicating greater pain.
