Age-Related Variations in Postoperative Pain Intensity across 10 Surgical Procedures: A Retrospective Study of Five Hospitals in South Korea – Lumbar Fusion

Day Case Lumbar Fusion Surgery

This article investigates the age-related differences in postoperative pain intensity across different surgical procedures. The study analyzed data from five hospitals, including 41,187 patients who underwent 10 distinct surgical procedures. The numeric rating scale was used to assess postoperative pain intensity during the 24 hours after surgery. The results showed that increasing age was associated with a decrease in worst postoperative pain intensity for lumbar spine fusion and cholecystectomy surgeries, among others. Surgeries with higher percentages of patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) administration had lower median worst-pain scores. The study highlights the need for a comprehensive understanding of the complex relationship between age, surgical intervention, and pain intensity in order to optimize pain management strategies

ABSTRACT

Age-related differences in pain perception have been reported in various contexts; however, their impact on postoperative pain intensity remains poorly understood, especially across different surgical procedures. Data from five hospitals were retrospectively analyzed, encompassing patients who underwent 10 distinct surgical procedures. Numeric rating scale scores were used to assess the worst postoperative pain intensity during the 24 h after surgery. The multivariate linear regression model analyzed the relationship between age and pain intensity. Subgroup analyses were performed according to sex and patient-controlled analgesia (PCA). This study included 41,187 patients. Among the surgeries studied, lumbar spine fusion (β = -0.155, p < 0.001) consistently and significantly exhibited a decrease in worst postoperative pain with increasing age. Similar trends were observed in cholecystectomy (β = -0.029, p < 0.001) and several other surgeries; however, the results were inconsistent across all analyses. Surgeries with higher percentages of PCA administration had lower median worst-pain scores. In , age may affect postoperative pain intensity after specific surgeries; however, a comprehensive understanding of the complex interplay between age, surgical intervention, and pain intensity is required. Pain management strategies should consider various factors, including age-related variations.
