Preconditioning of older patients undergoing hip joint replacement surgery
Joint replacement surgery is becoming the most frequent surgical intervention, exceeding surgeries for cancer or cardiovascular disease. The surgical stress response further accelerates the loss of muscle and function. It seems reasonable to attenuate the catabolic state in the perioperative period. The expansion of research in anesthesiology into the perioperative period will strengthen the future of this specialty and is in support of the “surgical home concept”.
The IARS contributes more than $1 million each year to fund important anesthesia research. Your donation will help support innovative and forward-thinking anesthesia research and education initiatives, all of which are designed to benefit patient care. You can feel good knowing that 100% of your donation is directly allocated to research.
