Abstract

Acute ureteric colic is thought to be produced by a calculus producing back pressure in kidneys and by increased production of prostaglandins. There is no ideal drug for acute ureteric colic as responses to various analgesic/ antispasmodic drugs vary between patients. This study was designed to assess the role of parenteral diclofenac sodium in the treatment of this painful condition.
