Summary
Brief summary
Participating patients will be screened as per the study protocol and will have prior informed consent.
Ten patients with normal renal function undergoing total knee or hip replacement surgeries are chosen for the study. As per the usual procedure in the hospital, surgeon infiltrates the joint with 100ml of 0.2% ropivacaine with adrenaline along with 30mg ketorolac at the end of surgery. Serial blood samples are taken at 30 mins, 1,2,4,8 and 24 hours post infiltration. Serum concentrations of ketorolac will be analysed using HPLC at Biochemical lab, University of Queensland. The results will be analysed by the research team.
