Same-day discharge arthroplasty has a higher overall complications rate than fast-track arthroplasty: a systematic review and meta-analysis.

Arch Orthop Trauma Surg 2021 Jun 15. Epub 2021 Jun 15.

Department of Orthopedics, Orthopedic Research Institute, West China Hospital, Sichuan University, 37# Guoxue Road, 610041, Chengdu, Sichuan, People's Republic of China.

Background: Published studies have reported many inconsistent results regarding the comparison of same-day discharge total joint arthroplasty (TJA) and inpatient TJA. More notably, many recent studies comparing same-day discharge TJA with fast-track TJA presented higher rates of complications for same-day discharge TJA, which raises concerns about the safety of same-day discharge TJA.

Methods: We systematically searched the MEDLINE, Embase, and Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials databases up to June 2020 for studies comparing mortality, readmission, and complications in same-day discharge and inpatient total hip or knee arthroplasty. Read More

WWII traumatic events, subjective well-being and valuation of life in the very old.

Z Gerontol Geriatr 2021 Jun 11. Epub 2021 Jun 11.

Chair of Rehabilitative Gerontology, Department of Special Education and Rehabilitation Science, Faculty of Human Sciences, University of Cologne, Herbert-Lewin-Str. 2, 50931, Cologne, Germany.

Background: Experiencing war is a major trigger for physical and mental health problems. People in the German population who are currently over 80 years of age experienced the Second World War (WWII) as children or adolescents, at a time when psychological vulnerability is high. Empirical results show that positive subjective well-being (SWB) and valuation of life (VoL) in older cohorts are widespread; however, when confronted with existential age-associated changes, many older adults experience increased burden, sometimes bringing biographical vulnerabilities to the forefront.

Hospital effects drive variation in access to inpatient rehabilitation after trauma.

J Trauma Acute Care Surg 2021 Apr 8. Epub 2021 Apr 8.

Department of Surgery, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI Center for Health Outcomes and Policy Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI.

Background: Post-acute care rehabilitation is critically important to recover after trauma but many patients do not have access. A better understanding of the drivers behind inpatient rehabilitation facility (IRF) use has the potential for major cost-savings as well as higher quality, and more equitable patient care. We sought to quantify the variation in hospital rates of trauma patient discharge to inpatient rehabilitation and understand which factors (patient- vs injury- vs hospital-level) contribute the most.
