Cryopneumatic Device After Shoulder Surgeries

2019-12-09 00:56:00 | BioPortfolio


This study randomize patients to receive either a cryopneumatic device or standard care (ice and ice packs) following open or arthroscopic shoulder surgeries. The primary objective is to determine the impact of the cryopneumatic device on post-surgery pain management, while secondary objectives are to detemine the effect on pain, patient eperience, quality of life, narcotic consumption and time to stop narcotic usage. Patients who do not wish to participate in the randomized portion of the trial will be invited to participate in an observational cohort who will all receive the cryopneumatic device. Patients who wish to enter this cohort will not have the device provided to them for free, and will either use their insurance or pay for the device, in order to determine if patients who pay demonstrate different outcomes from the patients receiving the device for free in the RCT.
