Study: Spinal, general anesthesia offer ‘reliable’ same-day discharge for outpatient TJA


Published results showed spinal and general anesthesia were associated with high rates of successful same-day discharge among patients who underwent outpatient total joint arthroplasty at a free-standing ASC. Tyler E. Calkins, MD, and colleagues from the University of Tennessee Health Science Center performed a matched cohort study of data from 105 patients who underwent outpatient TJA with spinal anesthesia and 105 patients who underwent the procedure with general anesthesia from May 13, 2014, to Dec. 18, 2020, at a single ASC.
