A recent study found ibuprofen is a better option than oral morphine for pain relief in children who have had minor orthopedic surgery. The study, published on Tuesday in the Canadian Medical Association Journal, found the two drugs had similar efficacy for pain but ibuprofen had fewer adverse effects than morphine. Researchers conducted a clinical trial with 154 children age 5 to 17 who underwent minor outpatient orthopedic surgery, including keyhole surgery on ligaments, joints and tendon repair, suture or hardware removal, at London Health Sciences Center in Ontario, Canada.
