ABSTRACT
We sought to quantify the impact of COVID-19 on canceled revision total joint arthroplasty (TJA) in a large academic hospital network. We performed a retrospective analysis of revision TKA and THA in a healthcare system containing 5 hospitals in a time period of 8 months prior to and 8 months after the cessation of elective surgery. We found a 30.1% decrease in revision TKA and a 6.80% decrease in revision THA. Revision TJA volume decreased in our healthcare system during COVID-19 compared to prior to the pandemic, which will likely have lasting financial and clinical ramifications for the healthcare system.
