Abstract
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the incidence of postoperative delirium in elderly patients after osteoarthritis surgery and to identify the risk factors for its development. Methods: This study enrolled 288 patients who underwent osteoarthritis surgery in hospital. Data was collected prospectively. Delirium was diagnosed by using the Nursing Delirium Screening Scale. Multivariable logistic regression analysis was used to identify independent risk factors for postoperative delirium. Patients were also followed for outcome. Results: Postoperative delirium developed in 42 patients (14.6%). Logistic regression analysis identified old age, low physical activity, antipsychotic agents, number of catheters, and intensive care unit admission as risk factors. Worse outcomes, including increased hospital mortality, reoperation, and discharge at care facilities, occurred in subjects who developed delirium. Conclusions: Osteoarthritis surgery in elderly patients was associated with a high incidence of postoperative delirium. The results of the current study regarding patient populations vulnerable to delirium should be taken into account so that such patients could be identified preoperatively or in the immediate postoperative period.
