Intraosseous Morphine Decreases Postoperative Pain and Pain Medication Use in Total Knee Arthroplasty

Intraosseous (IO) infusion of medication is a novel technique for total knee arthroplasty (TKA) antibiotic prophylaxis. To decrease postoperative pain in TKA patients, we investigated addition of morphine to a standard IO antibiotic injection.
IO morphine combined with a standard antibiotic solution demonstrates superior postoperative pain relief immediately and up to 2 weeks. IO morphine is a safe and effective method to lessen postoperative pain in TKA patients.
