      Toradol (ketorolac tromethamine) is a member of the pyrrolo-pyrrole group of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). The chemical name for ketorolac tromethamine is (±)benzoyl-2,3-dihydro-1 H-pyrrolizinecarboxylic acid, compound with 2-amino(hydroxymethyl)-1,3-propanediol (), and the chemical structure is. Ketorolac tromethamine is a racemic mixture of [-]S and [+]R / frail elderly population with multiple comorbidities. Ideally, such randomised controlled trials would include representative samples of frail older patients, but the practical problems with this are considerable.
