A prospective observational study of persistent opioid use after complex foot and ankle surgery
persistent postsurgical opioid use, complex foot and ankle surgery, brief pain inventory
The incidence of persistent postsurgical opioid use (PPOU) after complex foot and ankle surgery is unknown. We aimed to determine the incidence and characteristics of PPOU in opioid-naı¨ve, occasional, and regular opioid users at baseline and at six weeks, three months, and six months postoperatively.
