Values of D-D, CRP, ESR and Routine Blood Indicators in Perioperative Treatment of Patients with Orthopedic Trauma by Jianhua Gu

Background: We aimed to explore the values of D-dimer (D-D), C-reactive protein (CRP), erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), and routine blood indicators in the perioperative treatment of patients with orthopedic trauma.
Methods: A total of 170 patients treated from January 2019 to May 2022 were enrolled and assigned into an infection group (n = 71) and a non-infection group (n = 99) according to whether they had infection in the perioperative period. The levels of D-D, CRP, ESR, and routine blood indicators were detected, and their correlations with perioperative infection were analyzed.
Results: The levels of D-D, CRP, ESR, procalcitonin, leukocyte and neutrophil indicators in the two groups significantly increased 3 days after surgery compared with those before surgery (p < 0.05), and they were higher in the infection group (p < 0.05). In the infection group, the D-D, CRP, and ESR levels had no significant differences between males and females or between elderly and non-elderly patients 1 and 3 days after surgery (p > 0.05). They were significantly lower in patients with good prognosis than those with poor prognosis, and significantly increased after infection in comparison with those before confirmed infection (p < 0.05).
Conclusions: ESR, CRP, D-D, and routine blood indicators are of important guiding significance in the perioperative period of patients with orthopedic trauma, based on which early infection can be diagnosed.
