PURPOSE To determine the incidence of glenohumeral chondrolysis associated with the use of a continuous-infusion device in shoulder arthroscopy. METHODS A consecutive series of patients undergoing arthroscopic glenohumeral surgery with a postoperative continuous-infusion pump inserted into either the glenohumeral joint or subacromial space were evaluated for chondrolysis. Two pump types were used: group 1 received 100 mL of 0.5% bupivacaine without epinephrine infused at 2.08 mL/h, and group… CONTINUE READING
