Brief Summary:
The study evaluates the effectiveness and safety of IV tramadol compared to placebo managing postoperative pain following a bunionectomy

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Pain Management Drug: Tramadol Other: Placebo Phase 3

Detailed Description:

(Non-clinical summary)

Tramadol is a centrally-acting synthetic analgesic of the aminocyclohexanol group with opioidlike effects. Tramadol is extensively metabolized following administration, which results in a number of enantiomeric metabolites that display different opioid-receptor binding properties, and monoaminergic reuptake inhibition.
