– Findings Printed as Congress Calls for Evaluation of Medicare Protection for Non-opioid Remedies –
Cleveland, Ohio- April 26, 2021- Outcomes of a multicenter trial not too long ago revealed in Anesthesiology, the official peer-reviewed journal of the American Society of Anesthesiologists, demonstrated vital reductions in postoperative opioid use and ache following percutaneous peripheral nerve stimulation (PNS) in comparison with placebo. Individuals present process painful orthopedic surgical procedures corresponding to rotator cuff restore have been randomized to obtain PNS or placebo stimulation as a part of the examine. Primarily based on the outcomes of the examine, lead investigator, Dr. Brian Ilfeld, and co-authors concluded that “percutaneous peripheral nerve stimulation is extremely efficient for acute ache.”
• Sufferers handled with PNS consumed 80 % much less opioids within the first seven postoperative days in comparison with these within the placebo management group (P<0.001).
• Even when taking fewer opioids, sufferers receiving PNS remedy reported considerably decrease ache scores that have been one-third of these within the management group (P<0.001).
• None (0 %) of the sufferers handled with PNS have been utilizing opioids at one month following surgical procedure, whereas 18 % of the placebo sufferers continued taking opioids.
David Dickerson, MD, Chairman, Committee on Ache Drugs, American Society of Anesthesiologists, and part chief for ache drugs, NorthShore College Health System stated, “It’s clear that surgical procedure and postoperative opioid prescriptions could be a gateway to persistent opioid use and potential opioid use dysfunction. Moreover, surpluses of post-surgical opioid prescriptions could be a supply of misuse or abuse by people for whom the medicines weren’t prescribed. This examine highlights a significant function for PNS within the non-opioid administration of acute surgical ache. As mirrored within the examine’s findings, PNS gives a excessive impression, opioid-sparing, postoperative ache remedy and comes at an essential time as Congress is working to establish Medicare fee and protection insurance policies that promote or unnecessarilyleverage opioids over protected and efficient non-opioid remedies. Perioperative PNS remedy gives precisely the type of evidence-based, FDA-cleared know-how for which the NOPAIN Act was drafted. Help for protection of PNS for acute ache as a part of the Congressional initiatives presently underway could be an essential step ahead in selling entry to a protected and efficient non-opioid ache administration remedy.”
