Prescription opioid use is increasing, leading to increased addiction and mortality. Post-operative care is often patients' first exposure to opioids, however little data exists on national prescripti...
We characterized patterns of preoperative opioid use in patients undergoing elective surgery to identify the relationship between preoperative use and subsequent opioid fill after surgery.
Data regarding postoperative opioid prescriptions for patients undergoing urogynecologic surgery are sparse. Our objective was to quantify surgeon prescribing patterns for patients undergoing surgery ...
The role of prescription opioids in the opioid crisis has been well established. How the prevalence of prescription opioids relates to opioid hospitalizations has been understudied. Hospitalizations d...
