Review published: 2010.

Bibliographic details: Ratnasingham K, Uzzaman M, Andreani SM, Light D, Patel B.  Meta-analysis of the use of glyceryl trinitrate ointment after haemorrhoidectomy as an analgesic and in promoting wound healing. International Journal of Surgery 2010; 8(8): 606-611. [PubMed: 20691294]

Quality assessment

This review concluded that glyceryl trinitrate ointment used after a haemorrhoidectomy had a significant pain-relieving effect three to seven days postoperatively and significantly improved wound healing at three weeks. Differences between trials and the low number of small trials analysed should be taken into consideration when interpreting the authors' conclusions. Full critical summary

CRD has determined that this article meets the DARE scientific quality criteria for a systematic review.
