The following article recently published in The Journal of Knee Surgery assessed the initial clinical outcomes associated with use of hyperosmolar irrigation solution in patients undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery. Results of this study showed that a hyperosmolar saline irrigation fluid was not associated with any detrimental effects on the execution of the surgical procedure, postoperative pain, or periarticular fluid. This randomized clinical trial suggests that a hyperosmolar irrigation solution is safe and relatively inexpensive for use in patients undergoing this surgery and contributes to a reduction in initial postoperative narcotic pain medication consumption. Combined with previous basic science, translational, and clinical studies, hyperosmolar saline irrigation fluid is a promising alternative to traditional isotonic irrigation fluids for knee arthroscopy.
