Show Notes

In this episode, Marc and Mo are joined by special guest P.J. Devereaux, Director of the Division of Perioperative Care at McMaster University, in an informative discussion on the future of perioperative and transitional care. With much of the world still dealing with a third wave of the Covid pandemic, and with hospital access continuing to be a challenge because of high rates of ER visits and hospital readmissions, how can we optimize the safety and care of patients both intraoperatively and postoperatively?

 

  • How has Covid helped us to rethink how we might improve care for our patients in the future?
  • How can we most effectively monitor patients after they leave the orthopaedic surgical suite? 
  • What measures can we take to send patients home both sooner and safer?
  • What are the roles of technology, personnel, data monitoring, and established protocols in ensuring timely and improved patient care after discharge? 
  • What are the cost considerations associated with technology and technology support? How do these costs compare with those of ER visits and rehospitalizations? 
  • How might the development of a new discipline of perioperative and transitional care help to save lives, provide better patient experiences, improve outcomes, and avoid overloading our ERs and hospitals?

International Consensus in Orthopaedic Care (with special guest Javad Parvizi)

In this episode, Marc and Mo are joined by special guest Javad Parvizi (James Edwards Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at the Sidney Kimmel School of Medicine at the Rothman Institute at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia) in a thought-provoking discussion on the goals and impact of international efforts to achieve consensus and standardization in orthopaedic care, with a specific focus on guidelines related to periprosthetic joint infection and venous thromboembolism.  OrthoJOE Mailbag: feedback, comments, and suggestions from our audience can be sent to [email protected]   Links: Second International Consensus Meeting (ICM) on Musculoskeletal Infection. https://icmphilly.com/ Parvizi J, Gehrke T, Chen AF.

Distal Radial Fractures

Welcome to the OrthoJOE podcast with Dr. Marc Swiontkowski and Dr. Mohit Bhandari. In this episode of OrthoJOE, Marc and Mo discuss the RCTs (or randomized control trials) on common injuries like distal radial fractures. There is a huge amount of work involved in these. Should our focus be elsewhere? Is there such a thing as too many RCTs on the same topic?  Marc and Mo also talk about the data and their findings in recent scientific journals, including their own JBJS and Orthoevidence articles. "Cost-effectiveness studies'' are increasingly popular, with submissions doubling every 18 months. Orthopaedic surgeons must "own the bone" when treating distal radial fractures, which should be seen as a sentinel event for investigating overall bone health.  If you have any comments, questions, or topics you would like us to cover, please feel free to reach out so we can read your messages and possibly answer your questions during the next episode of OrthoJOE. We are currently working on a better mailbag system. However, in the meantime, you can contact us through our respective websites (MyOrthoEvidence and JBJS).  Talking Points: RCTs on distal radial fractures The cost-effectiveness of certain studies Getting the appropriate dialogue going The upsides and downsides to “expertise-based trials” Novel angles for future trials The AOA’s “Own the Bone” Program and focusing on poor bone quality Resources/Links: Ludvigsen T, Matre K, Gudmundsdottir RS, Krukhaug Y, Dybvik ...
