Background Pain management is an important portion of a patient’s postoperative care. Improved pain control can lead to improved outcomes, earlier mobilization, and shortened hospital stays. With the large side-effect profile of narcotics, numerous alternative methods to decrease opioid consumption, attain better pain-control and improve outcomes have been used. The emergence of the long-acting local anesthetic agent, Liposomal Bupivacaine (LB), has shown promise in improving pain control and…

Comparison of Intraoperative Periarticular Injections versus Liposomal Bupivacaine as Part of a Multimodal Approach to Pain Management in Total Knee Arthroplasty

Pain control in TKA with a multimodal pain management protocol was not improved with the addition of liposomal bupivacaine compared to the IOPA injection at a community hospital.

There exists a need for interventions that are patient focused and characterized by ease of use, improved adverse-effect and safety profiles, and manageable overall costs.

Use of Liposomal Bupivacaine Instead of an Epidural Can Improve Outcomes Following Total Knee Arthroplasty.

Periarticular injection of liposomal bupivacaine to epidural analgesia as part of multimodal pain management strategy for total knee arthroplasty appears to provide effective pain control leading to shorter hospital stays and improved early physical function compared with standard pain management with an epidural.

Efficacy of periarticular multimodal drug injection in total knee arthroplasty. A randomized trial.

Intraoperative periarticular injection with multimodal drugs can significantly reduce the requirements for patient-controlled analgesia and improve patient satisfaction, with no apparent risks, following total knee arthroplasty.
