The Effect of Functional Disability and Quality of Life on Decision to Have Surgery in Patients With Lumbar Disc Herniation
This study aimed to determine the effect of functional disability and quality of life (QoL) on the decision to have surgery in patients with lumbar disc herniation (LDH). METHOD/DESIGN: This is descriptive and cross-sectional survey. A total of 239 patients were included in the study. Data were collected using a personal information form, Surgical Belief and Attitudes Questionnaire (SBAQ), Visual Analog Scale (VAS), Oswestry Disability Index (ODI), Roland–Morris Disability Questionnaire (RMDQ) and Short Form-36 (SF-36). The data analysis was undertaken using Mann–Whitney U test, χ2 test, and logistic reg...

Integrative Review for Patients With Bilateral Total Knee Replacement: A Call for Nursing Practice Guidelines
CONCLUSIONS: Understanding which interventions are most effective for pain management, functional gains, quality of life, and other nurse-sensitive outcomes is best derived from empirical studies. Most likely, BTKA nursing care is being guided by clinical experts and not by empirical nursing evidence. In the absence of empirical evidence, it is feasible that nurses can extrapolate findings from other studies to guide and support the care of BTKA patients. Research recommendations include the exploration of early mobilization interventions, development of nursing care bundles, and evaluation of patient-centered outcomes a...

Low-Fidelity Code Blue Simulation on the Orthopaedic Unit
Orthopaedic nurses care for a range of patients with comorbid conditions, but because of the implementation of Rapid Response Teams, rarely do orthopaedic patients experience cardiac or respiratory arrest. Rapid Response Teams decrease emergent arrest situations on nursing units by intervening to treat clinical deterioration or move patients to a higher level of care prior to cardiac or respiratory arrest. Orthopaedic nurses still need to be prepared to act emergently with basic life support skills, which are only renewed every 2 years. Review of actual code blue events and the implementation of low-fidelity code blue simu...

Sickle Cell Disease: Bone, Joint, Muscle, and Motor Complications
Sickle cell disease (SCD) is a group of inherited disorders caused by a mutation of the hemoglobin gene, resulting in the formation of abnormal, sickle-shaped red blood cells. It is a lifelong condition characterized by anemia, vaso-occlusion, and decreased blood flow to vital tissues. Sickle cell disease affects every major organ and significantly reduces life expectancy of the affected individuals. Patients with SCD are at an increased risk for developing musculoskeletal complications that decrease quality of life and contribute to the significant burden of the disease. Understanding these complications, as well as the g...

Does the Shoe Fit? Considerations for Proper Shoe Fitting
It is important to be properly evaluated for shoes to avoid complications. Ill-fitting shoes can lead to pathologies in different populations. The focus of this article is to review the components and function of a basic athletic-type shoe, general shoe-fitting techniques, and selecting appropriate footwear for various populations including those with diabetes, elderly, and females. Poorly fitting shoes can exacerbate structural foot deformities. Unevenly distributed plantar pressures and wear can lead to ulcerations in diabetic populations. Resources and transportation may impact the elderly population when obtaining new ...

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....
