Emerging Trends In Orthopedic Postoperative Analgesia

Health care providers (HCPs) understand that many post-operative patients are eager to return to their daily runs, return to work, or simply navigate their own homes safely. Finding the right effective postoperative analgesia for each individual patient is crucial to these patient outcomes—and patient satisfaction.

To that end, researchers at the School of Epidemiology & Public Health, Datta Meghe Institute of Medical Sciences analyzed various analgesic modalities used in orthopedic postoperative pain relief, including opioids, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, acetaminophen, and adjuvant medications. They examined mechanisms of action, efficacy profiles, and potential adverse effects, as well as the evolving role of multimodal analgesia.

Also included was a critical evaluation of evidence-based practices and recent clinical trials to guide HCPs in making informed decisions regarding postoperative pain management.

By synthesizing knowledge and trends, the review contributes to the dialogue on optimizing orthopedic pain management strategies.
