Abstract

Background and objectives: Chronic postoperative pain (CPOP) is among the complications of coronary artery bypass surgery. Due to the high incidence of cardiac surgery and the role of limiting of the CPOP syndrome, this study was aimed to compare the impact of two different status of the hand placement during this surgery on postoperative shoulder pain. Materials and methods: in a randomized clinical study a total of 581 patients candidate for heart coronary artery bypass surgery, were divided into two groups. In a group, patients were placed on the bed so that their hands were put along the body and in other groups their hands were put in perpendicular. Two weeks after the surgery patients in terms of shoulder pain were evaluated. Results: Of the 581 patients in the study, 173 patients were placed in a state of hand on the side of the body and 408 patients were placed in a state of hand perpendicular to the body. In the terms of the presence of shoulder pain after surgery, a significant correlation existed between the two groups, so that on the method of on the side of the body 17.9% of patients had shoulder pain; and on the method of hand perpendicular to the body 38.8% of persons, at the time after the surgery, had shoulder pain. Conclusions: the findings of this study show that the placement of hand next to the body in comparison with the status of perpendicular to the body can be combined with less prevalence of shoulder pain after surgery.
