In a nutshell:  aimed to study the association of depression with risk of readmission following total joint arthroplasty, finding that depression is associated with a significantly higher risk of readmission after THA and TKA.  Shows the importance of promoting care coordination across disciplines for management of non-orthopedic comorbidities prior to surgery in order to optimise patient outcomes and save costs.
