The purpose of this study is to assess the benefit of OMS103HP for Injection (OMS103HP) compared with vehicle irrigation solution for prevention of pain and pain relief in subjects undergoing meniscectomy. The pain relief is assessed based on Visual Analog Scale (VAS) Pain Scores in the immediate 24-hour postoperative period and for seven days postoperatively.

  4. Subject with current, or history of fibromyalgia.
  5. Subject taking ANY ANALGESIC (including salicylates, opioids, propoxyphene, etc.) on the day of surgery from 12:00 A.M. until after the procedure, except for medications authorized by the Investigator or delegated staff.
  6. Subject taking any of the following medications within the stated time frames prior to the day of surgery.

    1. Amitriptyline within 30 days

    3. More than two doses of any oral, parenteral, or intravenous steroids (e.g., dexamethasone for antiemetic prophylaxis) within 3 months
    4. More than two doses of oxymetazoline or other nasal decongestant/cold/cough/allergy medication (including loratadine) within 7 days
    5. More than two doses of ketoprofen or other NSAID (including COX-2 inhibitors) within 7 days (except for piroxicam, as indicated below)
    6. Subject who has taken more than two doses of opioid pain medication within the prior seven days of surgery or chronic use of opioid pain medications for greater than 6 weeks within the prior year
    7. More than two doses of piroxicam within 14 days
    8. Subject with a history of intra-articular corticosteroid injection in the operative knee within the two months prior to the meniscectomy

    1. Arthroscopic patellar tendon debridement
    2. Patellar alignment
    3. Lateral or retinacular release
    4. Excision synovectomy (minor synovectomy to improve arthroscopic visualization is acceptable)
