Predictors and cost of readmission in total knee arthroplasty.
The Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement bundle was created to decrease total knee arthroplasty (TKA) cost. To help accomplish this, there is a focus on reducing TKA readmissions. The study’s authors used the Nationwide Readmission Database to examine national readmission rates, predictors of readmission, and associated readmission costs for elective TKA procedures.
