Description

The negative effects of cigarette smoking on conditions such as pulmonary disease, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and cancer are well documented, and, in turn, influence the interventions employed by the care provider. Similar adverse effects have also been reported in certain orthopedic conditions, but a comprehensive review on cigarette consumption in the perioperative care of the orthopedic patient is lacking. This study will take a global approach, using current literature to understand how smoking affects the outcomes of surgery on osseous tissue as well as other collagenous fibers such as cartilage and ligaments. In addition, through a meta-analysis, a proposed model of a perioperative smoking cessation program designed to minimize postoperative complications will be presented.
