Perioperative Care of the Orthopedic Patient with Connective Tissue Disease

  • Susan M. GoodmanEmail author


Patients with connective tissue diseases and inflammatory arthritis frequently require orthopedic surgery in the setting of poorly responsive inflammatory arthritis or osteonecrosis. Multisystem involvement in these patients may include cardiopulmonary disease that should be investigated preoperatively. Results of surgery are gratifying specifically with respect to pain relief, but functional improvements may lag behind patients with osteoarthritis undergoing the same procedures. Careful collaboration between surgeons, anesthesiologists, and rheumatologists is fundamental in order to optimize outcome.
