Detailed Description:

Postoperative pain has been concerned in the past few years by both the anesthesiologists ans the surgeons. COX2-inhibitors have played an important roles in postoperative pain with minimal side effects.

Comparison(s): There is a difference in postoperative morphine consumption in the first 24 hours after thyroidectomy between patients who received celecoxib and placebo.
