Preoperative opioid use associated with worse outcomes after anatomic shoulder arthroplasty
Este artículo es originalmente publicado en:
Preoperative opioid use has been associated with worse clinical outcomes after orthopedic surgery. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of preoperative opioid use on outcomes and patient satisfaction after anatomic total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA).
Patients with a history of preoperative opioid use can achieve significant improvements in patient-reported outcome measurements and patient satisfaction after anatomic TSA for primary glenohumeral joint arthritis. However, patients with preoperative opioid use have a significantly lower preoperative baseline and achieve significantly lower final outcome scores after TSA compared with patients without a history of preoperative opioid use.
