Flurbiprofen 0.03% for the control of inflammation following cataract extraction by phacoemulsification.

We conducted a double-masked, vehicle-controlled study to evaluate the anti-inflammatory effect of topical flurbiprofen in cataract surgery by phacoemulsification and implantation of a posterior chamber intraocular lens. The 233 patients were randomized to receive either flurbiprofen or vehicle immediately prior to and for two weeks following surgery. No concomitant corticosteroid use was allowed. The flurbiprofen group had significantly less anterior chamber cells and flare at day 7 and significantly less conjunctival erythema, corneal edema, and lid edema at day 14. The investigator's global effectiveness rating was higher in the flurbiprofen group at day 14. Blood-aqueous barrier disruption, as measured by aqueous fluorophotometry, was statistically significantly diminished in the flurbiprofen group. Burning and stinging were rated significantly greater in the flurbiprofen group than in the vehicle group. Foreign-body sensation and photophobia were significantly more severe in the vehicle group than in the flurbiprofen group. Flurbiprofen provided postsurgical anti-inflammatory efficacy in clinical signs of inflammation and in blood-aqueous barrier disruption, and also showed improved subjective signs.[1]
