Chronicling the effect of COVID-19 on orthopedic literature.

J Orthop 2021 Jul-Aug;26:107-110. Epub 2021 Jul 21.

Hansjörg Wyss Department of Plastic Surgery, NYU Langone, 222 East 41 Street, New York, NY, 10017, United States.

Background: The novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has had a significant impact on orthopedic surgery practice, but there has been little investigation of the effects of COVID-19 on the orthopedic surgery literature. Additionally, because orthopedic research plays a vital role in physician education, changes to the characteristics and content of published literature can have lasting impacts on future teaching and learning. This paper represents the first known analysis of the COVID-19 pandemic's impact on peer-reviewed articles published in orthopedic surgery journals. Read More

Narcotic requirements after shoulder arthroplasty are low using a multimodal approach to pain.

JSES Int 2021 Jul 6;5(4):722-728. Epub 2021 Apr 6.

Southern Oregon Orthopaedics, Medford, OR, USA.

Background: Recent "multimodal" approaches to pain, although understudied, have shown promise in reducing reliance on narcotics in shoulder arthroplasty (SA). Many surgeons report being unsure of how many narcotic pills to prescribe after the surgery. As result, patients are prescribed upwards of 60 oxycodone 5-mg pills for a 6-to-12-week treatment period despite studies showing postoperative pain can be managed without any medication at all.

Effects of a modified muscle sparing posterior technique in hip hemiarthroplasty for displaced intracapsular fractures on postoperative function compared to a standard lateral approach (HemiSPAIRE): protocol for a randomised controlled trial.

BMJ Open 2021 06 8;11(6):e045652. Epub 2021 Jun 8.

Exeter Hip Unit, Princess Elizabeth Orthopaedic Centre, Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Foundation Trust, Exeter, UK.

Introduction: Currently National Institute for Health and Care Excellence clinical guidelines in the UK suggest that surgeons performing partial hip replacements (hemiarthroplasty) should consider using the lateral approach. Alternatively, a newer, modified posterior approach using a muscle sparing technique named 'Save Piriformis and Internus, Repairing Externus' (SPAIRE) can be used leaving the major muscles intact. This randomised controlled trial (RCT) aims to compare the SPAIRE approach to the standard lateral approach, to determine if it allows patients to mobilise better and experience improved function after surgery.
