Hip surgery success partially predicted by number of other existing conditions
Date:4/1/2010

:

  • Medical complications were more common in patients in ASA class 3 and class 4 than in those in class 2.
  • Patients in ASA class 3 had a 3.78 times greater chance of having a medical complication following surgery than those in class 2.
  • Patients in ASA class 4 had a 7.39 times greater chance of having medical complications following surgery than those in class 2.
  • No significant relationship was identified between the ASA class and surgical complications.

"We confirmed use of the ASA classification can help identify high-risk patients," continued Dr. Donegan. "We recommend these higher risk patients, in class 3 or 4, be closely managed medically so that any existing conditions can be treated and any evolving medical issues can be addressed in a timely manner," continued Dr. Donegan.

Dr. Donegan added, "Utilizing strategies that improve bone health and prevent hip fractures are ways to limit the significant impact a fall can have."
