Perioperative growth hormone treatment and functional outcome after major abdominal surgery: a randomized, double-blind, controlled study. (1/2448)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate short- and long-term effects of perioperative human growth hormone (hGH) treatment on physical performance and fatigue in younger patients undergoing a major abdominal operation in a normal postoperative regimen with oral nutrition. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: Muscle wasting and functional impairment follow major abdominal surgery. METHODS: Twenty-four patients with ulcerative colitis undergoing ileoanal J-pouch surgery were randomized to hGH (12 IU/day) or placebo treatment from 2 days before to 7 days after surgery. Measurements were performed 2 days before and 10, 30, and 90 days after surgery. RESULTS: The total muscle strength of four limb muscle groups was reduced by 7.6% in the hGH group and by 17.1% in the placebo group at postoperative day 10 compared with baseline values. There was also a significant difference between treatment groups in total muscle strength at day 30, and at the 90-day follow-up total muscle strength was equal to baseline values in the hGH group, but still significantly 5.9% below in the placebo group. The work capacity decreased by approximately 20% at day 10 after surgery, with no significant difference between treatment groups. Both groups were equally fatigued at day 10 after surgery, but at day 30 and 90 the hGH patients were less fatigued than the placebo patients. During the treatment period, patients receiving hGH had reduced loss of limb lean tissue mass, and 3 months after surgery the hGH patients had regained more lean tissue mass than placebo patients. CONCLUSIONS: Perioperative hGH treatment of younger patients undergoing major abdominal surgery preserved limb lean tissue mass, increased postoperative muscular strength, and reduced long-term postoperative fatigue.  (+info)

Hepatectomy for hepatocellular carcinoma: toward zero hospital deaths. (2/2448)

OBJECTIVE: The authors report on the surgical techniques and protocol for perioperative care that have yielded a zero hospital mortality rate in 110 consecutive patients undergoing hepatectomy for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The hepatectomy results are analyzed with the aim of further reducing the postoperative morbidity rate. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: In recent years, hepatectomy has been performed with a mortality rate of <10% in patients with HCC, but a zero hospital mortality rate in a large patient series has never been reported. At Queen Mary Hospital, Hong Kong, the surgical techniques and perioperative management in hepatectomy for HCC have evolved yearly into a final standardized protocol that reduced the hospital mortality rate from 28% in 1989 to 0% in 1996 and 1997. METHODS: Surgical techniques were designed to reduce intraoperative blood loss, blood transfusion, and ischemic injury to the liver remnant in hepatectomy. Postoperative care was focused on preservation and promotion of liver function by providing adequate tissue oxygenation and immediate postoperative nutritional support that consisted of branched-chain amino acid-enriched solution, low-dose dextrose, medium-chain triglycerides, and phosphate. The pre-, intra-, and postoperative data were collected prospectively and analyzed each year to assess the influence of the evolving surgical techniques and perioperative care on outcome. RESULTS: Of 330 patients undergoing hepatectomy for HCC, underlying cirrhosis and chronic hepatitis were present in 161 (49%) and 108 (33%) patients, respectively. There were no significant changes in the patient characteristics throughout the 9-year period, but there were significant reductions in intraoperative blood loss and blood transfusion requirements. From 1994 to 1997, the median blood transfusion requirement was 0 ml, and 64% of the patients did not require a blood transfusion. The postoperative morbidity rate remained the same throughout the study period. Complications in the patients operated on during 1996 and 1997 were primarily wound infections; the potentially fatal complications seen in the early years, such as subphrenic sepsis, biliary leakage, and hepatic coma, were absent. By univariate analysis, the volume of blood loss, volume of blood transfusions, and operation time were correlated positively with postoperative morbidity rates in 1996 and 1997. Stepwise logistic regression analysis revealed that the operation time was the only parameter that correlated significantly with the postoperative morbidity rate. CONCLUSION: With appropriate surgical techniques and perioperative management to preserve function of the liver remnant, hepatectomy for HCC can be performed without hospital deaths. To improve surgical outcome further, strategies to reduce the operation time are being investigated.  (+info)

A policy of quality control assessment helps to reduce the risk of intraoperative stroke during carotid endarterectomy. (3/2448)

OBJECTIVES: A pilot study in our unit suggested that a combination of transcranial Doppler (TCD) plus completion angioscopy reduced incidence of intra-operative stroke (i.e. patients recovering from anaesthesia with a new deficit) during carotid endarterectomy (CEA). The aim of the current study was to see whether routine implementation of this policy was both feasible and associated with a continued reduction in the rate of intraoperative stroke (IOS). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Prospective study in 252 consecutive patients undergoing carotid endarterectomy between March 1995 and December 1996. RESULTS: Continuous TCD monitoring was possible in 229 patients (91%), while 238 patients (94%) underwent angioscopic examination. Overall, angioscopy identified an intimal flap requiring correction in six patients (2.5%), whilst intraluminal thrombus was removed in a further six patients (2.5%). No patient in this series recovered from anaesthesia with an IOS, but the rate of postoperative stroke was 2.8%. CONCLUSIONS: Our policy of TCD plus angioscopy has continued to contribute towards a sustained reduction in the risk of IOS following CEA, but requires access to reliable equipment and technical support. However, a policy of intraoperative quality control assessment may not necessarily alter the rate of postoperative stroke.  (+info)

Gastric emptying after elective abdominal aortic aneurysm surgery: the case for early postoperative enteral feeding. (4/2448)

OBJECTIVE: To assess gastric emptying with a view to early postoperative enteral nutrition after elective abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) surgery. METHODS: The paracetamol absorption test was used to assess gastric emptying in 13 consecutive patients at 6, 18 and 32 h following elective AAA surgery. All patients received postoperative analgesia with marcaine given via an epidural catheter during the first 48 postoperative hours. Normal emptying was defined as an area under the plasma paracetamol concentration curve at 60 min (AUC-60) of > 600 mg/min/l. RESULTS: The median time to normal gastric emptying was 18 +/- 7.7 h. One patient (7.6%) had normal emptying at 6 h, nine (69%) at 18 h and 12 (92%) at 32 h. The nasogastric tubes were removed at a median of 3.2 days after surgery, and enteral feeding was commenced on day 4. CONCLUSIONS: Gastric emptying was normal 18 h post-AAA surgery as assessed by the paracetamol absorption test. In view of the importance of maintaining an intact gastrointestinal mucosa, enteral nutrition may be commenced on the second postoperative day.  (+info)

Effects of aggressive early rehabilitation on the outcome of anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction with multi-strand semitendinosus tendon. (5/2448)

To evaluate the effects of aggressive early rehabilitation on the clinical outcome of anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction using semitendinosus (and gracilis) tendon, 103 of 110 consecutive patients who underwent ACL reconstruction using multistrand semitendinosus tendon (ST) or the central one-third of patellar tendon with bony attachments (BTB) were analyzed prospectively. Subjectively, the Lysholm score was not different among the groups. The Lachman test indicated a trend of less negative grade in the ST men's group than that in the BTB men's group. On the patellofemoral grinding test, only women patients of both groups showed pain, with less positive crepitation in the ST group than in the BTB group. KT measurements at manual maximum showed more patients with more than 5 mm differences in the ST group than in the BTB group. The results of this study suggest that aggressive early rehabilitation after the ACL reconstruction using the semitendinosus (and gracilis) tendon has more risk of residual laxity than with the BTB.  (+info)

Predictive value of perioperative gastric acid tests. (6/2448)

Preoperative acid studies and early postoperative insulin tests in 275 patients undergoing various forms of vagotomy have been related to recurrent ulceration. Follow-up time has been from two to nine years, mean 4-3 years. Recurrence is directly related to basal acidity in both tests but is not related to stimulated acid levels preoperatively. In the insulin tests higher levels of acidity after insulin are associated with a higher incidence of recurrence. When positive, Hollander's and multiple criteria are both associated with a higher recurrence rate.  (+info)

Evaluation of routine tracheal extubation in children: inflating or suctioning technique? (7/2448)

We studied prospectively the effects of the technique of tracheal extubation on arterial haemoglobin oxygen saturation (SpO2) in 120 ASA I-III children, mean age 5.3 (range 0.25-16.9) yr. At completion of surgery, tracheal extubation was performed when spontaneous ventilation had resumed, children were fully awake and SpO2 was 99-100%. Children were allocated randomly to receive a single lung inflation manoeuvre with 100% oxygen before tracheal extubation (group I; n = 59) or to have the tracheal tube removed while applying suction through the tube (group S; n = 61). SpO2 was monitored during the first 5 min after tracheal extubation in the operating room. Supplementary oxygen was given if SpO2 decreased to less than 92%. The time between tracheal extubation and decrease in SpO2 to 92% (T92) was recorded. Children in group S required oxygen administration more frequently after tracheal extubation than those in group I (65.6% vs 45.8%; P = 0.04), and had a three-fold shortening of T92 (mean 25 (SD 19) s vs 85 (63) s; P = 0.0001). These effects were more pronounced in children less than 4 yr of age compared with older children. We conclude that tracheal extubation greatly impaired oxygenation and therefore administration of oxygen was appropriate. This impairment was more marked when suction was used, and in young children. Lung inflation with 100% oxygen before removal of the tracheal tube is advised before routine tracheal extubation in children.  (+info)

Intra-articular morphine and/or bupivacaine after total knee replacement. (8/2448)

The postoperative analgesic effects of intra-articular injections of bupivacaine and/or morphine were examined prospectively in 437 patients who had total knee replacement for osteoarthritis. They were divided randomly into four groups. Group I received 10 mg of morphine (1 ml) and 9 ml of saline, group II received 10 ml of bupivacaine (2.5 mg/ml), group III received 10 ml of saline, and group IV received 10 mg of morphine (1 ml) and 9 ml of bupivacaine (2.5 mg/ml). All analgesics administered in the first 24 hours after operation were recorded. The patients rated their pain on the McGill-Melzack scale at 1, 6, 12 and 24 hours. No significant differences were found between any of the groups in the use of Demoral and/or Toradol in 24 hours, the length of stay in hospital or the pain rating at 1, 6, 12 or 24 hours. Patients in groups I and IV, whose injections included morphine, used significantly more morphine in the first 24 postoperative hours than did groups II or III.  (+info)

Various attempts have been made to provide an objective continuous assessment of the cir-culatory state of free flaps, using plethysmo-graphy in its various forms, Doppler ultrasound, temperature, and percutaneous oxygen tension measurements. None of these are entirely satisfactory, and they can, in fact, be misleading.. The decision as to whether the anastomosis needs to be revised is essentially a clinical one, and the rule is simple. When in doubt, re-explore. Flaps do not suffer as a result of re-exploration.. It is postponement of exploration and revision in the forlorn hope of spontaneous improve-ment which prejudices the survival of the flap, and may convert probable into inevitable flap loss ...
Perioperative Care articles covering primary concerns, evaluation, preoperative management, and postoperative management. Peer reviewed and up-to-date recommendations written by leading experts.
Panigrahy and colleagues, including Charles N. Serhan, PhD, DSc, director of the Center of Experimental Therapeutics and a member of the Department of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine at Brigham and Womens Hospital, hypothesised that an early blockade of the inflammatory cascade and/or accelerating the resolution of inflammation could overcome the tumour-promoting unintended consequences of cancer surgery.. Using a well-established animal model, the scientists found that preoperative but not postoperative administration of a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug called ketorolac eliminated the spread of cancer cells in multiple tumour-resection models, resulting in significantly prolonged survival.. The team also showed that preoperative administration of resolvins - naturally occurring anti-inflammatory factors produced by the human body first discovered by Serhan and colleagues at Brigham and Womens Hospital in 2002 - produced the same result.. Moreover, they found that ...

According to Dr. Overman, the study findings support the utility of ctDNA detection to identify molecular residual disease after surgical resection and to predict disease recurrence. If applied appropriately, he predicted, ctDNA monitoring could alter the paradigm for postoperative management of this disease. This not only relates to escalation and de-escalation of treatment, but to the use of this assay to replace current surveillance approaches, he suggested.. Moving Forward: More to Learn. However, it is critical for clinicians to understand how to use ctDNA to guide therapy, Dr. Overman added. It must be recognized that the availability of a test is not the same as its actionability.. Numerous phase II/III clinical trials have been launched to prospectively evaluate the power of ctDNA to direct disease management, using multiple approaches to ctDNA detection. These trials are leveraging ctDNA in several different ways, such as guiding adjuvant treatment intensification after surgery for ...

Recent literature indicates that in a healthy patient, who has sufficient bone volume to allow implant placement, it is justified to refrain from prophylactic administration of antibiotics. The patient should, however, rinse with chlorhexidine digluconate 1 day prior to treatment and at least 1 week postoperatively. In the case of an immune-compromised patient, a single antibiotic gift is indicated 1 hour before the procedure (2 grams of amoxicillin orally or 2 grams of cefazoline intravenously). In the case of a healthy patient, antibiotic (AB) prophylaxis is also indicated if autologous bone, a bone filler or membranes are applied. Although AB prophylaxis is not necessary when harvesting extraoral bone grafts, it is indicated because the harvested bone is applied intraorally in the same treatment session. The question whether postoperative administration of antibiotics is still needed remains open ...

HIGH DEPENDENCY CARE OF THE NEW BORN (CASE HISTORY) PREDISPOSING CAUSES OF NECROTISING ENTEROCOLITIS Registration NO: 100252125 Module NO : SNM3115 Unit Leader : Angela Thurlby Word Count : 2022 The following discussion will analyse the care of a baby who I have recently looked after in the high dependency who developed necrotising entero colitis(NEC) and consequently had to be re admitted to the NICU. According to Sankaran (2004) NEC is an inflammatory disease of the bowel, predominantly affecting premature infants but it sometimes occurs in cohorts. Whilst caring for the baby he became ill with a profound bradycardia and on turning him over he looked pale, cyanosed with a mottled skin and distended abdomen. He weighed only 1050g, and had previously been moved from ITU to high dependency because he was tolerating full feeds of expressed breast milk (EBM). According to Boxwell (2010) NEC is characterised by transmural intestinal inflammation, ischaemia, necrosis and sometimes ...

The primary outcome to be measured is the postoperative use of opioids in the post anesthesic care unit.. Secondary outcomes, will be the amount of opioids used in the following 24 hours to the surgery, the time to the first dose of analgesia in the post anesthesic care unit, and the change in the pain thresholds, evaluated as pain by pressure and by tactile sensitivity, before and after surgery.. Also, as a secondary outcome, in a group than will not receive the study drug, we will evaluate the temporal changes in opioid induced hyperalgesia, by pain sensitivity measured in the postoperative hours 2, 4 and 24. 10 patients receiving placebo will be part of this additional measures. ...
Many medical professionals are increasingly opting for natural methods of treatment for their postoperative patients. There are often many complications for patients after a significant operation; these complications can delay recovery time, increase pain, and even lengthen hospital stays. Studies indicate that massage therapy can decrease postoperative pain and distress-and often even increase recovery time for patients. This is welcome news, especially for those who are looking for alternatives to heavy pain medications which often produce negative side effects ...

Because ovarian sex steroids fluctuations during the menstrual cycle are implicated in the pathogenesis of the endometriosis-related chronic pelvic pain (CPP), the oral contraceptives (OCs) are used with non-contraceptive indication for this disorder.. To date, OCs are widely used as medical treatment in patients with endometriosis, in addition, they are recently experimented as post-surgical therapy. Traditional cyclic regimen, with 21 days of active pills with 7 days of placebo or suspension, is usually adopted. Furthermore, recent studies suggested that long-term continuous OCs use can be effective in the postoperative period both as second- and third- line treatments after cyclic regimen failure. In these studies a combined treatment with ethinilestradiol (0.02 mg) plus desogestrel (0.15 mg) were used and compared with baseline or ciproterone acetate.. A recent study showed a deeper ovarian and endometrial suppression with continuous OCs in comparison with cyclic OCs, providing a ...
Pancreatoduodenectomy (PD) is a major surgical procedure which is accompanied by a high morbidity of between 30 and 50%. A large part of this morbidity is caused by delayed gastric emptying (DGE), which is reported to have an incidence of between 30 and 40% and is associated with prolonged hospital stay. Several pathophysiological mechanisms are thought to cause this complication. Peroperative trauma of the pylorus and the occurrence of intra-abdominal abscesses play a role. Neuronal changes and disruption of the gastrointestinal (GI) intramural nervous plexus may be especially important regarding the pivotal role of the duodenum in the initiation and coordination of antroduodenal motor activity. Another important factor is the postoperative administration of enteral nutrition. Recently, it was demonstrated that cyclic enteral nutrition through a catheter jejunostomy led to a faster return to normal diet and shorter hospital stay than patients on continuous enteral nutrition; this might be ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Is routine postoperative chest radiography needed after open nephrectomy?. AU - Latchamsetty, Kalyan C.. AU - La Rochelle, Jeffrey C.. AU - Hoeksema, Jerome. AU - Coogan, Christopher L.. PY - 2005/2. Y1 - 2005/2. N2 - Objectives. To assess whether routine postoperative chest radiography (CXR) is required after open nephrectomy for the detection and possible management of a pneumothorax. It has become the standard of care by many urologists to obtain routine postoperative CXRs after open nephrectomy to assess for the presence of a pneumothorax. However, at our institution, very few patients have developed a pneumothorax postoperatively, and, furthermore, the CXR findings almost never affected the clinical management. Methods. Retrospective data were collected on the last 150 open nephrectomies performed by two urologists at our institution. All laparoscopic nephrectomies and thoracoabdominal nephrectomies were excluded from analysis. Results. A total of 150 patients underwent open ...

Objective: FEV1 measured on the first postoperative day has shown to be a better predictor of complications than traditional ppoFEV1. Therefore, its estimation before operation may enhance risk stratification. The objective of this study was to develop and validate a model to predict FEV1 on the first postoperative day after major lung resection. Methods: FEV1 was prospectively measured on the first postoperative day in 272 patients submitted for lobectomy or pneumonectomy at two centers. A random sample of 136 patients was used to develop a model estimating the first day FEV1 by using multiple regression analysis including several preoperative and operative factors. The model was then validated by bootstrap analysis and tested on the other sample of 136 patients. Results: Factors reliably associated with postoperative first day FEV1 were age (p=0.002), preoperative FEV1 ( ...

READERS SUMMARY:. What might you consider pre and post op before your surgery?. These all need to be cleared with your surgeon before starting!. In an ideal situation, patients undergoing surgery will have adequate time before the operation to prepare themselves emotionally and physically. This preparation will likely include dietary supplementation, as well as mental and emotional preparation. The healthier patients are when they go into surgery, the healthier they are likely to be during the postoperative phase. If they are a progressive patient suggest some brain training pre-op with biofeedback or transcendental meditation. It has an amazing effect of decreasing the need for post-op narcotic pain meds for pain control. The fewer pain meds one takes, the fewer complications one will face too. It also will not induce post op hormone changes.. I also recommend that patients with poor glucose control discuss intensive insulin therapy with the surgeon before surgery. Specifically adding 500 mgs ...

The team secured a significant damages award for a woman who, at the age of 52 had a laparoscopic sacrocopopexy for urinary symptoms. The case was presented on the basis that the symptoms were not those that would indicate that this procedure was appropriate..

The claim settled in the run up to trial for over a quarter of a million pounds.. ...

  • With the possibility of serious post-operative complications, you need a solution that can help you protect and care for vulnerable patients. (
  • The rate of complications from inpatient surgery is similar from hospital to hospital, but the mortality rates appear linked to care of those complications. (
  • Amir Ghaferi, MD, and colleagues from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor reported in the October 1 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine that a hospital's ability to care for postoperative complications may be a key factor in surgical mortality rates. (
  • The researchers concluded that it is not only important to aim at avoiding complications, but it is important to be able to properly care for complications that occur in order to reduce moralities. (
  • Complications from surgery and prolonged bed rest include deep vein thrombosis (blood clots) and postoperative pneumonia (lung congestion) . (
  • Since increased vital capacity is indicative of improved pulmonary function, it is suggested that the use of the dead space-expiratory pressure device should result in a decreased incidence of postoperative pulmonary complications. (

  • Assess and manage common postoperative complications. (
  • Identify the principles of postoperative nutritional support and its complications. (
  • We aim to determine the frequency with which patients who have undergone elective craniotomies require intensive care unit level interventions or experience significant complications during the post-operative period to identify a subset of patients for whom an alternative to ICU level care may be appropriate. (

  • During the immediate postoperative period, the main complications are primary graft failure, right ventricular failure, pulmonary hypertension crisis, rejection and infection. (
  • All patients are examined on the first day after surgery in order to rule out any early postoperative complications, to diagnose any fundus pathology which was not possible pre-operatively due to media haze, and to assess the immediate postoperative visual outcome. (
  • Postoperative residual curarization has been related to postoperative complications. (
  • 2 In turn, poor visual acuity outcomes can be the result of inadequate pre-operative assessment (such as inaccurate biometry and/or a failure to detect signs which indicate that surgery may be complicated), complications during the surgical procedure itself, and poor postoperative management (including a lack of refraction). (
  • In this issue of the Community Eye Health Journal, Dr George Ohito from St Mary's Mission Hospital, Langata, Kenya, describes postoperative care as "an integral part of cataract management, with the objectives of minimising patient discomfort and pain, preventing injury and complications, and improving surgical and vision outcomes" ( page 26 ). (
  • To achieve a good outcome from cataract surgery, a team effort is needed - community eye care workers, nurses, counsellors, eye surgeons and optometrists, as well as the patients and their carers - all have to have an understanding of the cataract journey (from fi rst diagnosis to discharge), the complications that may arise, and how they can be prevented or their impact minimised. (
  • Safe and effective monitoring and care is essential during the vulnerable post-operative period to ensure early action in the event of clinical complications. (
  • Remember that following our guidelines will help you minimize complications and good care of your body during post operative recovery will help minimize the appearance of post operative scars. (
  • Respiratory issues account for nearly half (43%) of PACU complications, according to one study, but many postoperative patients, like Logan, may receive limited monitoring to alert clinicians of problems. (
  • This included the age and weight at admission, the postoperative recovery setting, pain management, postoperative feeding, post-operative complications, and length of hospital stay. (
  • Postoperative admission to the surgical intensive care unit (S-ICU) is routinely planned in order to prevent and treat early complications. (
  • On the second, seventh, and thirtieth postoperative days, the location of the patients was recorded (ICU, surgical ward, or home) as were any complications that occurred. (
  • We analyze the volume-cost relationship for 6 cancer operations and explore whether it is influenced by the occurrence of complications and/or utilization of processes of care. (
  • Regressions were first estimated to quantify the association of provider volume with costs, excluding measures of complications and processes of care as explanatory variables. (
  • Processes of care implemented when complications occur explain much of the surgeon volume-cost relationship. (
  • Increasing patient access to surgeons with lower rates of complications may be the most effective strategy for avoiding costly processes of care, controlling expenditure growth. (
  • POSTOPERATIVE cardiac complications represent a major health burden. (
  • 1 Numerous studies indicate that these complications, which occur during the first postoperative days, can harm patients immediately but also months to years later. (
  • As the operating surgeon, he/she is best situated to apply evidence-based scientific knowledge and a deep understanding of potential complications to that patient's care. (

  • In 378 patients receiving major orthopedic surgery, a root cause analysis followed by application of simple changes in postoperative care were associated with a 4-fold reduction in major adverse cardiac events. (
  • The trend toward earlier postoperative discharge after major surgery has shifted the venue of this period. (
  • BACKGROUND: In this prespecified cohort study, we investigated the influence of postoperative admission to the intensive care unit versus surgical ward on health care utilization among patients undergoing intermediate-risk surgery. (
  • Postoperative discharge disposition varies substantially based on anesthesia and surgical provider preferences but should optimally be driven by an objective assessment of a patient's status at the end of surgery. (
  • The cephalic vein should be protected during dissection in order to reduce postoperative edema. (
  • Future research should investigate physiologic pathways to mortality risk and determine whether improvements in perioperative diabetes care can reduce postoperative mortality. (
  • Such a ventilatory mode would in theory reduce postoperative lung and organ dysfunction. (
  • Patients experience pain and discomfort during the immediate postoperative period (i.e., about 10 days). (
  • The surgeon should be notified if any of these symptoms are experienced during the immediate postoperative period. (
  • Currently, limited studies have been conducted on this topic, and as such, early morbidity and mortality in patients undergoing postoperative intensive care were investigated. (
  • Patient risk factors predictive of postoperative morbidity included serum albumin level, American Society of Anesthesia class, the complexity of the operation, and 17 other preoperative risk variables. (
  • See also preoperative care . (
  • The results show that the speech outcome is worse in postoperative patients when compared to preoperative patients. (
  • The modern surgeon is involved with the management of a patient from preoperative evaluation, through the conduct of the operation into the postoperative care period and often into generating a long-term plan. (
  • METHODS: Of adult surgical patients who underwent general anesthesia without an absolute indication for postoperative intensive care unit admission, 3530 patients admitted postoperatively to an intensive care unit were matched to 3530 patients admitted postoperatively to a surgical ward using a propensity score based on 23 important preoperative and intraoperative predictor variables. (
  • Your child will be restricted to bed rest until the third postoperative day. (

  • He/she will be allowed to sit up in the bed on the morning of the third postoperative day. (
  • OBJECTIVE Diabetes appears to increase risk for some cancers, but the association between preexisting diabetes and postoperative mortality in cancer patients is less clear. (
  • Our objective was to systematically review postoperative mortality in cancer patients with and without preexisting diabetes and summarize results using meta-analysis. (
  • We included English language investigations of short-term postoperative mortality after initial cancer treatment. (
  • Because diabetes can lead to infections, metabolic derangements, and acute cardiovascular events, cancer patients with diabetes may also be at greater risk of short-term mortality, especially in the peri- and postoperative interval ( 2 , 5 ). (
  • We therefore sought to review and summarize data evaluating the risk of short-term postoperative mortality related to preexisting diabetes in newly diagnosed cancer patients. (
  • The Department of Veterans Affairs has successfully implemented a system for the prospective collection and comparative reporting of postoperative mortality and morbidity rates after major noncardiac operations. (
  • Planned admission to the S-ICU may effectively decrease postoperative mortality, as suggested by the highly significant difference between expected and observed deaths following S-ICU admission. (
