Does Vitamin D Status Affect the Attainment of In-Hospital Functional Milestones After Total Hip Arthroplasty
Journal of Arthroplasty, 07/22/2011
Unnanuntana A et al. – There were no associations between serum vitamin D level and the attainment of in–hospital functional milestones as well as length of hospital stay or perioperative complications after total hip arthroplasty (THA). Because low vitamin D status did not compromise the short–term functional outcomes after THA, surgery need not be delayed, but low vitamin D levels should be corrected once identified.
