A Randomized Double Blind Placebo Controlled Trial of Ramelteon in the Prevention of Post-operative Delirium


Brief description of study

This trial focuses on a Phase II randomized masked clinical trial testing the effectiveness and safety of peri-operative administration of ramelteon, a melatonin agonist in the prevention of postoperative delirium.

Detailed Study Description

This trial will randomize older aged patients undergoing general or regional anesthesia for orthopedic surgical procedures to three perioperative doses of a melatonin agonist, ramelteon, and placebo in a masked double blind fashion. The primary outcomes are 1) the incidence of post-operative delirium in the recovery period in the Postoperative Anesthesia Care Unit and on post-operative days 1 and 2 following surgery, and 2) the safety of ramelteon as documented by the presence of adverse events in the follow-up period.
