Introduction. In this open controlled study the authors evaluated the anti-inflammatory, antalgic and antipyretic efficacy of flurbiprofen in 200 mg capsules as a complementary treatment to antibiotic therapy following minor oral surgery.
Methods. A total of 100 patients of both sexes, aged between 13 and 65, were monitored after extraction of impacted 3rd molar.
Patients were treated with flurbiprofen SR 200 mg/day for five days and were controlled on the 2nd and 5th day after surgery. The following parameters were evaluated: painful symptoms, objective examination of mucosa and fever.
Results. The results showed the clear efficacy of flurbiprofen SR in reducing all the parameters examined.
