Aims: Because the cardiovascular system (CVS) side-effects of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) selective inhibitors have recently been questioned, we aimed to compare the renal and haemodynamic effects of cyclooxygenase selective (celecoxib and rofecoxib) and non-selective non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) (indomethacin) in patients with renal amyloidosis secondary to rheumatological diseases who required anti-inflammatory agents and are taking maximum tolerable dose of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors.
