Study Summary

This trial will study whether the use of ketorolac during breast reduction surgery leads to an increased rate of hematoma or bleeding.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for women over 18 years old who need breast reduction surgery due to large, heavy breasts. It's not suitable for those with morbid obesity, smokers, a history of kidney failure, an inability or unwillingness to consent to the study, or allergies to NSAIDs like ketorolac.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study tests if using ketorolac during surgery affects hematoma rates compared to saline. Ketorolac is thought to increase bleeding risks but also provides good pain control. The trial aims to see if it can be used safely without raising hematoma/bleeding risks in breast reductions.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Ketorolac may cause side effects such as increased risk of bleeding and hematoma formation post-surgery. Other potential side effects include digestive issues and allergic reactions in those sensitive to NSAIDs.
