Brief Summary:
To determine whether a single dose of intravenous lornoxicam is superior to intravenous placebo for management of post-operative pain in patients who have surgical removal of a bunion on the lower extremity. One-fourth of patients in this study will receive a single dose of intravenous ketorolac for management of pain and one-fourth of patients in this study will receive a single dose of an intravenous placebo.

Drug Information available for: Ketorolac

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The analgesic efficacy (TOTPAR) over 0-12 hours measured on a 100 point Visual Analog Scale (VAS) of a single intravenous dose of lornoxicam (8 mg or 16 mg) compared to placebo in the treatment of post-orthopedic surgery (bunionectomy)
  2. To evaluate the safety and tolerability of lornoxicam administered to subjects with post-bunionectomy surgery pain.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. To determine the time to onset of analgesic effect and peak analgesic effect of lornoxicam (8 mg and 16 mg) compared to placebo.
