Effects of Peri-Operative Glucosteroid Administration on outcomes following Distal Radius Fracture
The use of more than one pain treatment to treat different types of pain is referred to as multiomodal pain management. This method is used widely to help patients avoid reliance on opioid medications by reducing pain after surgery. One option for multimodal pain management is the use of steroids during surgery to reduce pain in addition to the use of prescribed pain medication post-operatively. This research is being done to compare patient recovery in 2 groups:
Group 1: patients will receive steroids during surgery, as well as a post-operative oral steroid pack and standard pain medications.
Group 2: patients will receive only the standard post-operative pain medication.
It is predicted that the use of steroids during surgical repair of distal radius fractures will improve the outcomes for patients as compared to the group that does not receive medication during their surgery.
