Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: During total knee arthroplasty, an assistant surgeon needed to use one hand to maintain the patient's knee position in flexion, stabilizing the foot on the operative table. To reduce the workload of the assistant surgeon, a new foot supporting instrument was designed to stabilize the foot during total knee arthroplasty. Perioperative registered nurses prepared and planned a newly designed foot supporting instrument made of an L-shape metal rod. The diameter of the rod was an inch and the length of both limbs of L-shape rod is 12 inches. One limb of the L-shape rod was covered with leather and soft rubber to support the plantar surface of the foot. The other limb was firmly connected to the side of the operative table. Assessment: A newly designed foot supporting instrument was used on 20 patients who were undergoing total knee arthroplasty surgery. Implementation: A newly designed foot supporting instrument was evaluated and includes the satisfaction of the surgeons and the effectiveness of the instrument in maintaining knee flexion during surgery. Outcome: The average score for reduction of surgeon's workload was 3.90, convenience during surgery was 3.88, patient safety was 3.90, usefulness was 3.90, and surgeon's satisfaction was 3.93. All the scores evaluated were in the excellent grade. Implication for Perioperative Nursing: The newly designed foot supporting instrument should be used to reduce the workload of surgeons and assistants and provide convenience during total knee arthroplasty surgery.
