Abstract: Background: Lornoxicam and iv paracetamol are commonly preferred to be used for postoperative analgesia. Although Aspirin is a well known non-steroid anti-inflammatory drug that decreases the erythrocyte deformability, there is no study comparing lornoxicam and iv paracetamol regarding their effects on erythrocyte deformability recorded in literature. The aim of this study was to compare the effects of lornoxicam and IV paracetamol on blood perfusion and erythrocyte deformability on rats.
Methods: Twenty male Wistar Albino rats were randomly divided into three groups as Lornoxicam group (Group L), IV paracetamol group (Group P), and control group (Group C). Intraperitoneal administrations were done in all groups except Group C. Liver and renal blood flows were conducted by laser Doppler and euthanasia was performed via intraabdominal blood uptake. Erythrocyte deformability was measured using a constant flow filtrometer system. 
Results: Lornoxicam increased the relative resistance which shows the erythrocyte deformability in rats (p<0.05). The comparison of Groups C and P revealed no statistically different results (p=0.731) while Group L revealed statistically higher results than Group C (p=0.022). No statistically significant differences were found between groups L and P (p=0.073). Liver and renal blood flow values in Group L were just numerically decreased not statistically whilst no statistically significant difference was found between the three groups.
Conclusions: Lornoxicam have lead to functional disorders related to tissue perfusion as a result of both decreased blood flow and erythrocyte deformability (Fig. 3, Ref. 21). Full Text in PDF www.elis.sk.
