Impact of diabetes on 90-day episodes of care after elective total joint arthroplasty among Medicare beneficiaries.
This study examined the impact of diabetes on 90-day episodes of care after elective total knee arthroplasty (TKA) and total hip arthroplasty (THA) in the United States. Complication (n = 521,230) and readmission (n = 515,691) data was extracted on Medicare beneficiaries using files from 2013 and 2014. Diabetes status was identified with ICD-9 codes. The odds ratio (OR) of TKA complications was significantly higher for patients with uncontrolled diabetes than those with no diabetes. The OR of THA complications was also significantly higher for controlled-complicated diabetes. OR of readmission was significantly higher for all diabetes groups.
