|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Catheter-related Bladder Discomfort||Drug: phenazopyridine HCl Other: Placebo||Phase 4|
This is a randomized clinical trial to determine whether phenazopyridine HCl reduces catheter-related bladder discomfort, using mean VAS scores and overall pain medicine requirements in women catheterized following in-patient gynecologic surgery.
Hypothesis and Aims:
We plan to test the null hypothesis that there is no difference in post-operative pain as measured by VAS pain scores and pain medication requirements in women with a Foley catheter following gynecologic surgery that are given phenazopyridine HCl vs. placebo.
The primary aim of this randomized clinical trial is to compare the utility of phenazopyridine HCl vs. placebo in reducing catheter-associated discomfort during the post-operative period in the gynecologic patient using mean VAS measurements.

Active Comparator: Study Medication Group
Participants that are randomized to the phenazopyridine HCl group will receive the study medication (200 mg of phenzopyridine HCl orally) after leaving the operating room. We anticipate the first dose to be given after the patient has left the recovery area. We will continue use of study medication until it has been given up to 24 hours after the first VAS collection or catheter removal, whichever occurs first
Drug: phenazopyridine HCl
Phenazopyrdine HCl 200 mg q8h x 24
Other Name: Pyridium
Placebo Comparator: Placebo tablet Group
For participants randomized to the placebo group will follow the same dosing schedule for the study medication, although they will receive an inert placebo tablet.
Placebo tablet administered q8 hours for 24 hours postop.
- Reduction of Catheter-associated Discomfort During the Post-operative Period in the Gynecologic Patient Using Mean Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) Measurments [ Time Frame: 24 hours ]The VAS measures bladder pain on a straight line from 0 to 10 in centimeters, where a mark of zero indicates no pain and a mark of 10 indicates worst possible pain. Mean VAS score was recorded for participants in the active treatment and placebo cohorts.
