Several patient risk factors associated with discharge to post-acute care after TSA

Results of this study cited several patient risk factors, including older age, number of comorbidities and procedure type, linked with an increased risk of discharge to a post-acute care facility after total shoulder arthroplasty.

Researchers analyzed the Nationwide Inpatient Sample discharge records from 2011 to 2012 for patients who underwent either total shoulder arthroplasty(TSA) or reverse total shoulder arthroplasty (RTSA). Using univariate and multivariate analyses, researchers determined the statistically significant risk factors for discharge to a post-acute care facility.
