Clinical Details

Official title: A Multicenter, Double-Blind Randomized, Placebo-Controlled Study Of The Efficacy And Safety Of Pregabalin In The Treatment Of Subjects With Post-Operative Pain Following Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA)

Study design: Treatment, Randomized, Double Blind (Subject, Investigator), Parallel Assignment, Safety/Efficacy Study

Primary outcome: To assess the efficacy of pregabalin compared to placebo on pain following total knee arthroplasty using a subject reported assessment of worst pain.

Secondary outcome:

Effect of pregabalin on the occurrence of opioid related symptoms

To evaluate the presence of neuropathic pain symptoms at 3 and 6 months post surgery

Effect of pregabalin on rescue medication/opioid sparing

Evaluate the effect of pregabalin at reducing post-operative pain at different time points post total knee arthroplasty

To evaluate the effect of pregabalin on time to eligibility for hospital discharge and time to actual hospital discharge

Evaluate the effect of pregabalin on pain interference with functional activities

Evaluate safety and tolerability of pregabalin

To evaluate the effect of pregabalin on persistent post-operative pain

To evaluate the effect of pregabalin on pain-related sleep interference

To evaluate the effect of pregabalin on treatment satisfaction with study medication

To evaluate the effect of pregabalin on pre-operative anxiety
