  1. Hip replacement and hip hemiarthroplasty surgery : potential opportunities to shorten lengths of hospital stay.

    Article - En anglais

    The potential safety and effectiveness of a practice guideline recommending a 5-day postoperative stay in the acute care hospital for hip surgery patients without clinical findings predictive of a complicated hospital course was studied retrospectively in 230 patients hospitalized for total hip replacement, total hip replacement with osteotomy, or hip hemiarthroplasty.

    Seventy percent of total hip replacement and hip hemiarthroplasty patients were classified as being at « low risk » for complications by the guideline (161 patients, or 73% of patients who remained hospitalized).

    Use of the guideline could have reduced the hospital length of stay from 8.4 days (standard deviation 3.3) to 5.9 days for these selected low-risk patients.
