Causes of unplanned admission after orthopaedic procedures in ambulatory surgery

ConclusionsUnplanned admissions are more frequently related to general anaesthesia, lengthy surgeries and procedures such as arthroscopy, hallux valgus corrections or removal of osteosynthesis material. The major reasons for unplanned admissions were inadequate postoperative pain management for overnight admissions and wound infection for admissions after discharge.ResumenObjetivoLos procedimientos de Cirugía Ortopédica y Traumatología (COT) realizados en Unidades de Cirugía Mayor Ambulatoria (CMA) ofrecen importantes ventajas que desaparecen cuando la recuperación postoperatoria no es la esperada y los pacientes precisan ingresar. El objetivo de este estudio es analizar las causas de ingresos no deseados tras intervenciones quirúrgicas de COT en una Unidad de CMA en relación con variables como edad, riesgo anestésico, tipo de anestesia, procedimiento o duración.MétodosEstudio de cohorte ambispectivo sobre 5085 pacientes intervenidos desde 1995 a 2017. Se analizaron 39 variables proporcionadas por la base de datos de la Unidad que se abre al ingreso en la misma y se cierra el día 30 postoperatorio.ResultadosEl 98.2% de los pacientes fueron dados de alta de la Unidad. Precisaron ingresar 74, 1.5%. Este porcentaje demostró diferencias significativas en relación al tipo de procedimiento, tipo de anestesia y duración, que condicionaron el ingreso inmediato por mal control del dolor a...

ConclusionWith this local –regional nerve-blocking protocol, opioid use after ARCR was unexpectedly low, and a large proportion of patients recovered without any post-surgical opioids. The correlation seen between opioid use and age may not be clinically significant, given the low use of post-operative opioids overall. The se results may be useful in guiding post-operative opioid prescribing after ARCR, as well as in lowering costs associated with ARCR.

Total joint replacement is the recommended treatment for end-stage temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disease. The goal of treatment is to help the return to acceptable function with improvement of the maximum incisal opening (MIO) and a reduction of pain. When a prosthetic joint shows late complications, surgical management includes an open approach, with debridement, cultures, and prosthetic replacement as options. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the early outcomes of arthroscopic management of failing prosthetic TMJs (PTMJs).

Authors: Plečko M, Bohaček I, Tripković B, Čimić M, Jelić M, Delimar D Abstract Anterior section of the hip joint capsule is innervated by femoral nerve and obturator nerve, and posterior section is innervated by the nerve to quadratus femoris muscle and occasionally by the superior gluteal (posterolateral region) and sciatic nerve (posterosuperior region). One of the regional anesthesia options for hip surgery is the fascia iliaca compartment block (FICB) that affects nerves important for hip innervation and sensory innervation of the thigh - femoral, obturator and lateral femoral cutaneous nerve. FICB can b...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewHip arthroscopy is a rapidly growing field due to its significant diagnostic and therapeutic value in the management of numerous hip disorders. Adequate control of postoperative pain in patients undergoing hip arthroscopy continues to be a challenging and evolving area in orthopedics. In the absence of standardized protocols for pain management in these patients, a variety of different approaches have been utilized in an effort to find a regimen that is effective at reducing postoperative pain, narcotic consumption, and cost to the patient and healthcare system. The purpose of this article, therefo...

Authors: Cho CH, Bae KC, Kim DH Abstract Frozen shoulder (FS) is a common shoulder disorder characterized by a gradual increase of pain of spontaneous onset and limitation in range of motion of the glenohumeral joint. The pathophysiology of FS is relatively well understood as a pathological process of synovial inflammation followed by capsular fibrosis, but the cause of FS is still unknown. Treatment modalities for FS include medication, local steroid injection, physiotherapy, hydrodistension, manipulation under anesthesia, arthroscopic capsular release, and open capsular release. Conservative management leads to i...

The opioid epidemic continues to be a problem in the United States and prescription opioid overdose fatalities continue to rise. Chronic opioid use threatens military readiness and puts service members at risk for medical separation from military service. Orthopedic surgeons commonly prescribe opioid medications for postsurgical patients. Long-term opioid use can be the result of acute, postoperative opioid intake. Overprescribing may increase the risk of long-term opioid use, medication diversion and adverse outcomes. Preoperative administration of opioids dramatically increases the risk of continued use up to 1 year afte...

Abstract Arthrofibrosis is the pathologic stiffening of a joint caused by an exaggerated inflammatory response. As a common complication following total knee arthroplasty (TKA), this benign-appearing connective tissue hyperplasia can cause significant disability among patients because the concomitant knee pain and restricted range of motion severely hinder postoperative rehabilitation, clinical outcomes, and basic activities of daily living. The most effective management for arthrofibrosis in the setting of TKA is prevention, including preoperative patient education programs, aggressive postoperative physical ther...

Our study investigated analgesic efficacy, duration of analgesia, postoperative analgesic use and patient satisfaction with the use of preemptive intravenous dexketoprofen for interscalene block in addition to general anesthesia in arthroscopic shoulder surgery. METHODS: 60 patients, scheduled for arthroscopic shoulder surgery were randomized (30 patients each) into either: - control group (Group1) or dexketoprofen gr...
