Review Articles

  • * Only 1 study has evaluated the effect of polymorphisms on postoperative pain following total knee arthroplasty and total hip arthroplasty.
  • * Opioids do not produce optimal analgesia for all patients; nevertheless, the personalization of opioid selection and dosing is not commonly practiced, most likely because of the paucity of evidence with regard to clinical outcomes and opioid pharmacogenomics in patients undergoing total joint arthroplasty.
  • * Further clinical trials are still required to establish the reliability and efficacy of the pharmacogenomics panel tests.
