Summary of "No Difference in Outcomes Between Short and Longer-Stay Total Joint Arthroplasty with a Discharge Home: A Propensity Score-Matched Analysis Involving 46,660 Patients."

Outcomes following total hip arthroplasty (THA) and total knee arthroplasty (TKA) with a short length of hospital stay have been reported; however, most studies have not accounted for an inherent patient selection bias and discharge disposition. The purpose of this study was to utilize a propensity score to match and compare the outcomes of patients undergoing THA or TKA with short and longer lengths of stay with a discharge directly home.
