Postoperative Pain – Epidemiology – Mature Markets Data

Clarivate Epidemiology’s coverage of postoperative pain comprises epidemiological estimates of key patient populations across the major mature pharmaceutical markets (the United States, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the United Kingdom, and Japan). We report event rates of major operations requiring pain medication for each country, as well as annualized case counts projected to the national population.

Clarivate Epidemiology’s postoperative pain forecast will answer the following questions:

How will demographic trends, such as population aging and improving life expectancy, affect the epidemiology of postoperative pain over the forecast period?

All forecast data are available on the Clarivate Insights Platform in tabular format, with options to download to MS Excel. All populations are accompanied by a comprehensive description of the methods and data sources used, with hyperlinks to external sources. A summary evidence table generated as part of our systematic review of the epidemiological literature is also provided for full transparency into research and methods.

In addition to the total number of cases for each forecast year, Clarivate Epidemiology also provides at least ten years of forecast data for the following inpatient procedures:

  • appendectomy (excluding incidental)
  • bunionectomy
  • cardiac procedures, including CABG
  • cesarean section
