“Wet Diapers - Dry Patients”: An effective dressing for patients undergoing arthroscopic shoulder surgery

Atul Kapila, Amit Bhargava, Len Funk, Stephen Copeland, Ofer Levy

Abstract Shoulder arthroscopy is very commonly associated with postoperative leakage of irrigation fluid. This causes apprehension to patients and their relatives and leads to frequent change of dressings. We describe a simple and effective diaper dressing for patients undergoing arthroscopic shoulder surgery. It is highly absorbent, cost-effective, and easy to apply. We have used this dressing successfully in more than 1,500 shoulder arthroscopies over the last 3 years with no adverse reaction.
