Pain pumps are designed to deliver controlled amounts of local anesthetics to the patient for post-operative pain management. The pain pump is designed to deliver medications directly to the surgical wound site or in close proximity to the nerves associated with the surgical area. The pain pump infuses the medication at an hourly flow rate or combination of an hourly flow rate and controlled bolus doses.
A recent study published by The American Journal of Sports Medicine identified intra-articular pain pumps (aka post-operative pain pumps) as the likely cause of a condition known as Postarthroscopic Glenohumeral Chondrolysis (PAGCL).
