A nationwide analysis of socioeconomic outcomes after hip and knee replacement

After surgery with total hip and knee replacement patients continuously have higher healthcare costs and lower income levels than an age- and socio-economically matched reference population even though the healthcare costs and income of the patients were comparable to the reference population until three years before the operation. Strategies for enhanced rehabilitation are highly warranted.

Laparoscopic appendectomy during pregnancy is safe for both the mother and the fetus

Laparoscopic appendectomy during pregnancy is safe for both the mother and the fetus

Laparoscopic appendectomy is safe to perform in pregnancy for both mother and fetus, and the procedure can be performed throughout the whole pregnancy independent on the gestational age. Laparoscopic appendectomy is associated with longer operation time, but shorter hospital stay and a lower risk of post-operative complications than laparotomy.
