Following implementation of this pathway, the authors demonstrated a 31% reduction in total costs and 34% reduction in total time spent by patients at the facility, with no changes in quality of outcomes or patient experience [21]. Other studies have also demonstrated greater operative throughput and workflow efficiencies with the incorporation of WALANT [15,22]. ...
