Female gender, increasing age and longer operation time were independent risk factors for hospital admission following arthroscopic Bankart repair, according to results published in Orthopedics.

“While arthroscopic Bankart repair is commonly performed in the outpatient setting in a safe fashion among young healthy patients, older patients with comorbidities, such as diabetes and longer operation times, had a significant higher hospital admission rate,” Brett D. Owens, MD, told

Using the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program prospective database, Owens and colleagues performed univariate analysis and binary logistic regression to determine risk factors for hospital admission among 2,291 patients who underwent arthroscopic Bankart repair between 2005 and 2014.

Results showed 7.6% of patients required inpatient hospital admission following surgery, with univariate analysis showing female gender, age older than 40 years, white race, BMI greater than 30 kg/m2 and American Society of Anesthesiologists class greater than 3 to be associated with admission. Independent predictors of admission included female gender, increasing age, diabetes and longer operative time, according to results of a multivariate analysis. – by Casey Tingle
