Traumon spray is used in such conditions as: blunt injuries: bruises, sprains, strains of muscles, tendons and joints. Osteoarthritis of the spine, knee and shoulder joints.
TRAUMON spray Composition:
1 g gel or 1 ml aerosol contains 100 mg etofenamate.
TRAUMON spray Action:
Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug TRAUMON spray from the group of anthranilic acid derivatives (fenamates) with analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties for topical use. The mechanism of action consists in inhibiting prostaglandin synthesis, inhibiting the release of inflammation mediators (bradykinin, serotonin, histamine, proteolytic enzymes), blocking the complement system and inhibiting the release of hyaluronidase. When given on the skin, the bioavailability is about 20% and depends on the local condition (eg skin moisture). The maximum concentration in the blood occurs after 12-24 h of use. About 99% is bound to plasma proteins. TRAUMON spray is excreted in the form of many metabolites free or conjugated in 35% with urine, the remaining part with bile and faeces.

Blunt injuries: bruises, sprains, strains of muscles, tendons and joints. Osteoarthritis of the spine, knee and shoulder joints. Extra-articular rheumatism: pain in the sacro-lumbar region; lesions in peri-articular soft tissue (bursitis, tendons, tendon sheaths, joint capsules); epicondylitis.
