  • Opioid analgesic use and patient-reported pain outcomes after rhinologic surgery. [Journal Article]
  • IFInt Forum Allergy Rhinol 2018 Dec 03
  • Riley CA, Kim M, … Tabaee A
  • CONCLUSIONS: Postoperative pain after elective rhinologic surgery appears to peak over the first 3 days and decreases rapidly afterward. Most patients require a few doses of opioid analgesics. Opioid requirements and pain levels did not vary based on surgeon, type and extent of surgery, and demographic factors. Judicious prescribing of opioid medication after rhinologic surgery represents a practical opportunity for rhinologists and otolaryngologists to reduce opioid overprescription and abuse.
  • National variation in opioid prescribing after pediatric umbilical hernia repair. [Journal Article]
  • SSurgery 2018 Nov 30
  • Cartmill RS, Yang DY, … Kohler JE
  • CONCLUSIONS: Although many patients do not require opioids for umbilical hernia repair, most pediatric patients fill opioid prescriptions, including for prolonged courses and refills. Guidelines for appropriate prescribing of opioids after common, simple procedures, such as umbilical hernia repair, could improve the quality of care for children and impact the US epidemic of opioid abuse.
