Abstract: Forty-four [44] patients with severe renal colic were studied for their response to 500 mg injectable aspirin [Aspegic] administered intravenously twice daily for two days. It was found that 22.7% reported complete relief from pain after the first injection and 72.7% showed various degrees of improvement. In the overall assessment at the end of treatment, 63.6% showed an excellent response. Two patients did not show any response to treatment. Nineteen patients [43.2%] had felt or seen the stone pass out in urine, and none experienced any major adverse effects. Aspegic could be a useful drug in emergency treatment of severe renal colic
