Non-Steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) are molecules that inhibit the functionality of cyclooxygenase, resulting in suppression of prostaglandin production. Primary physicians and specialist clinics frequently prescribe NSAIDs for the treatment of osteoarticular diaseases such as tendinitis, bursitis, synovitis, spondylitis and osteoarthritis. This analysis aims to study gastrointestinal complications in orthopedic patients, caused by the use of NSAIDs, employng esophagogastroduodenoscopy and colonoscopy.

Abstract

Non-Steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) are molecules that inhibit the functionality of cyclooxygenase, resulting in suppression of prostaglandin production. Primary physicians and specialist clinics frequently prescribe NSAIDs for the treatment of osteoarticular diaseases such as tendinitis, bursitis, synovitis, spondylitis and osteoarthritis. This analysis aims to study gastrointestinal complications in orthopedic patients, caused by the use of NSAIDs, employng esophagogastroduodenoscopy and colonoscopy.
