Detailed Description

Acetaminophen and ibuprofen has been safely used for a long time and reduces postoperative pain and opioid dosages. Investigators are planning to compare the efficacy of 1) acetaminophen 1g only and 2) the combination of acetaminophen 1g and ibuprofen 300mg at postoperative pain after thyroidectomy. Some recovery valuables such as the postoperative pain and opioid requirements will be assessed

Interventions

  • Drug: Acetaminophen
    • acetaminophen 1g iv dripping at end of surgery
  • Drug: Ibuprofen
    • ibuprofen 300mg iv dripping at end of surgery

Arms, Groups and Cohorts

  • Active Comparator: control group
    • acetaminophen 1g iv dripping
  • Experimental: experimental group
    • the combination of acetaminophen 1g and ibuprofen 300mg iv dripping

Clinical Trial Outcome Measures

Primary Measures

  • postoperative pain
    • Time Frame: during 30 minutes after surgery
    • the maximal postoperative pain severity using pain scale(visual analogue scale; 0 cm=no pain; 10 cm=the worst pain)

Secondary Measures

  • pain killer requirement
    • Time Frame: during 30 minutes after surgery
    • the incidence of the patients who require pain killer
