Skin Laceration in Collagenase Clostridium histolyticum Treatment for Dupuytren's Contracture
BACKGROUND: Dupuytren's contracture produces a progressive flexion contracture of the affected fingers. Collagenase Clostridium histolyticum produces breakdown of the cord in the hand and/or finger(s) that tightens as a result of the disease creating a contracture, allowing manual traction and cord rupture. One of the side effects is spontaneous skin laceration when the finger is extended. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the development of skin lacerations in Dupuytren's contracture treated with collagenase Clostridium histolyticum, to determine predisposing factors, and evaluate the effectiveness of 2 different treatments (a...

Impact of Music Therapy on Hospitalized Patients Post-Elective Orthopaedic Surgery: A Randomized Controlled Trial
BACKGROUND: Music therapy (MT) research has demonstrated positive effects on fatigue, depressed mood, anxiety, and pain in perioperative care areas. However, there has been limited research on the effects of MT for surgical patients on orthopaedic units. PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to understand the impact of MT sessions on post-elective orthopaedic surgery patients' pain, mood, nausea, anxiety, use of narcotics and antiemetics, and length of stay. METHODS: This was a randomized controlled study with an experimental arm (MT sessions) and a control arm (standard medical care). Patients received MT within ...

Caring for the Orthopaedic Patient With a History of Bariatric Surgery
Bariatric surgery is performed on the gastrointestinal tract as a solution to obesity, and prevalence of these surgical procedures continues to rise. Bariatric surgery creates restrictive and/or malabsorptive properties, causing nutritional deficits from the physiological changes in absorption and a hypoacidic environment. Although surgery induces sustained weight loss, decreases mortality, and provides resolution or improvement to comorbidities of obesity, it can also come with complications. Common long-term complications of bariatric surgery include malnutrition, anemia, impaired wound healing, and impaired bone health....

A Systematic Integrative Review of Pin Site Crusts
There continues to be a lack of knowledge in the overall management of pin site crusts for orthopaedic clinicians to make evidence-based decisions on their retention or removal. The goal of pin site care is to reduce, or where possible, prevent pin site infection. Understanding the role of pin site crusts in the management of the pin site and prevention of pin site infection is important. The aim of this systematic integrative review is to explore the effectiveness of pin site crusts as a biological dressing versus the removal of pin site crusts in pin site care and prevention of pin site infection. Three electronic databa...

Development and Validity Testing of an Arthritis Self-Management Assessment Tool
CONCLUSION: The ASMAT devised in the present study may aid the evaluation of patient self-management ability and the effectiveness of self-management interventions. The authors believe the developed tool may also aid the identification of problems associated with the adoption of self-management practice, and thus improve symptom management, independence, and quality of life of patients with arthritis.

MACRA and the Quality Payment Program: How Does It Relate to Orthopaedic Nursing?
The introduction of 2017 also brought with it the beginning of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) legislation related to the Quality Payment Program (QPP), in addition to alternative payment models and the merit-based incentive payment system. The successful implementation of the QPP within the specialty of orthopaedics will rely heavily on the active involvement of orthopaedic nurses when it comes to improving quality, lowering costs, and incorporating value. It is important for orthopaedic nurses to understand the QPP and the role it plays in determining value-based payment of orthopaedic ca...

Screening for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder in Civilians With Mangled Hand Injury: A Practice Enhancement Approach
Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a symptom cluster of intrusion, avoidance, negative alteration in cognition, and alteration in arousal and reactivity following trauma. PTSD occurs frequently after a physical trauma such as a severe hand injury. It is often not recognized and consequently untreated. Previous research has shown that 10%–40% of civilian trauma survivors experience PTSD in the first 12 months after injury. There is great urgency to identify patients in the early stage of recovery from trauma, as PTSD becomes more difficult to treat in its chronic form. Mangling hand injuries are particularly disa...

Organizational Learning in an Orthopaedic Unit: A Learning History
The purpose of this study was to explore organizational learning in an orthopaedic hospital unit. Skill in organizational learning is necessary to achieve high reliability in a dynamic healthcare environment, yet organizational learning in hospital units is not well understood. A learning history was conducted with a high-performing orthopaedic unit. Findings were interpreted in the context of a previous learning history conducted with a critical care unit. Despite contextual differences, each unit progressed through the same four developmental stages to achieve its current state of high reliability. On both units, psychol...

Bilateral Patellar Tendon Rupture
The knee is the most complex and largest joint in the body. Injuries to any part of this joint affect the entire body. There are multiple injuries that can occur to the knee, with the most common being ligament and meniscus tears. A not-so-common injury to the knee is a patellar tendon rupture. A bilateral patellar tendon rupture is extremely rare. A case study of a 43-year-old man who sustained a bilateral patellar tendon rupture while playing softball is used to present this devastating injury. This discussion includes the incidence and diagnosis of the tear, surgical repair, as well as a description of the comprehensive...
