VERASENSE Can Mitigate 90-Day Post-op Complications
through Soft Tissue Balance
MUA RATE: VERASENSE VS. NON-SENSOR2
62% OF OBSERVED MUAS WERE WITHIN THE 90-DAY POST-OP INTERVAL
VERASENSE: STATISTICALLY-SIGNIFICANT REDUCTION IN MUA
Manipulation under anesthesia (MUA) is a common treatment for stiffness and arthrofibrosis post-TKA. Studies show a higher degree of success when treatment is performed earlier (<3 mo.) post-TKA1 ; however, bundled payment models focusing on a 90-day episode of care may not provide reimbursement within this timeframe.
A decrease in MUAs should reduce overall TKA readmissions and lessen the costs and risks currently under focus through CMS’s Comprehensive Joint Replacement payment program.
