Abstract

Nonsteroidal anti‐inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are used to help relieve pain after surgery. However, there have been concerns about the harmful effects of these drugs on the kidneys. Eight randomised controlled trials were included in this review. The review found that NSAIDs cause minor transient effects on the kidneys. All the participants in these trials were adults, so the results of this review may not be the same in children.
