Effect of intravenous dextran 70 and pneumatic leg compression on incidence of postoperative pulmonary embolism. (1/18686)

The incidence of pulmonary embolism and deep vein thrombosis was measured in 50 matched pairs of patients undergoing common surgical procedures with preoperative and postoperative ventilation-perfusion lung scans and the fibrinogen uptake test. One patient in each pair was treated with intravenous dextran 70 and pneumatic leggings. The incidence of pulmonary embolism among the treated patients was significantly reduced from 24% to 8%, but the incidence of deep vein thrombosis was not significantly reduced (34% to 24%).  (+info)

Analysis of the effect of conversion from open to closed surgical intensive care unit. (2/18686)

OBJECTIVE: To compare the effect on clinical outcome of changing a surgical intensive care unit from an open to a closed unit. DESIGN: The study was carried out at a surgical intensive care unit in a large tertiary care hospital, which was changed on January 1, 1996, from an open unit, where private attending physicians contributed and controlled the care of their patients, to a closed unit, where patients' medical care was provided only by the surgical critical care team (ABS or ABA board-certified intensivists). A retrospective review was undertaken over 6 consecutive months in each system, encompassing 274 patients (125 in the open-unit period, 149 in the closed-unit period). Morbidity and mortality were compared between the two periods, along with length-of-stay (LOS) and number of consults obtained. A set of independent variables was also evaluated, including age, gender, APACHE III scores, the presence of preexisting medical conditions, the use of invasive monitoring (Swan-Ganz catheters, central and arterial lines), and the use of antibiotics, low-dose dopamine (LDD) for renal protection, vasopressors, TPN, and enteral feeding. RESULTS: Mortality (14.4% vs. 6.04%, p = 0.012) and the overall complication rate (55.84% vs. 44.14%, p = 0.002) were higher in the open-unit group versus the closed-unit group, respectively. The number of consults obtained was decreased (0.6 vs. 0.4 per patient, p = 0.036), and the rate of occurrence of renal failure was higher in the open-unit group (12.8% vs. 2.67%, p = 0.001). The mean age of the patients was similar in both groups (66.48 years vs. 66.40, p = 0.96). APACHE III scores were slightly higher in the open-unit group but did not reach statistical significance (39.02 vs. 36.16, p = 0.222). There were more men in the first group (63.2% vs. 51.3%). The use of Swan-Ganz catheters or central and arterial lines were identical, as was the use of antibiotics, TPN, and enteral feedings. The use of LDD was higher in the first group, but the LOS was identical. CONCLUSIONS: Conversion of a tertiary care surgical intensive care unit from an open to closed environment reduced dopamine usage and overall complication and mortality rates. These results support the concept that, when possible, patients in surgical intensive care units should be managed by board-certified intensivists in a closed environment.  (+info)

Colon and rectal anastomoses do not require routine drainage: a systematic review and meta-analysis. (3/18686)

OBJECTIVE: Many surgeons continue to place a prophylactic drain in the pelvis after completion of a colorectal anastomosis, despite considerable evidence that this practice may not be useful. The authors conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials to determine if placement of a drain after a colonic or rectal anastomosis can reduce the rate of complications. METHODS: A search of the Medline database of English-language articles published from 1987 to 1997 was conducted using the terms "colon," "rectum," "postoperative complications," "surgical anastomosis," and "drainage." A manual search was also conducted. Four randomized controlled trials, including a total of 414 patients, were identified that compared the routine use of drainage of colonic and/or rectal anastomoses to no drainage. Two reviewers assessed the trials independently. Trial quality was critically appraised using a previously published scale, and data on mortality, clinical and radiologic anastomotic leakage rate, wound infection rate, and major complication rate were extracted. RESULTS: The overall quality of the studies was poor. Use of a drain did not significantly affect the rate of any of the outcomes examined, although the power of this analysis to exclude any difference was low. Comparison of pooled results revealed an odds ratio for clinical leak of 1.5 favoring the control (no drain) group. Of the 20 observed leaks among all four studies that occurred in a patient with a drain in place, in only one case (5%) did pus or enteric content actually appear in the effluent of the existing drain. CONCLUSIONS: Any significant benefit of routine drainage of colon and rectal anastomoses in reducing the rate of anastomotic leakage or other surgical complications can be excluded with more confidence based on pooled data than by the individual trials alone. Additional well-designed randomized controlled trials would further reinforce this conclusion.  (+info)

Peripheral hepatojejunostomy as palliative treatment for irresectable malignant tumors of the liver hilum. (4/18686)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the concept of surgical decompression of the biliary tree by peripheral hepatojejunostomy for palliative treatment of jaundice in patients with irresectable malignant tumors of the liver hilum. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: Jaundice, pruritus, and recurrent cholangitis are major clinical complications in patients with obstructive cholestasis resulting from malignant tumors of the liver hilum. Methods for palliative treatment include endoscopic stenting, percutaneous transhepatic drainage, and surgical decompression. The palliative treatment of choice should be safe, effective, and comfortable for the patient. METHODS: In a retrospective study, surgical technique, perioperative complications, and efficacy of treatment were analyzed for 56 patients who had received a peripheral hepatojejunostomy between 1982 and 1997. Laparotomy in all of these patients had been performed as an attempt for curative resection. RESULTS: Hepatojejunostomy was exclusively palliative in 50 patients and was used for bridging to resection or transplantation in 7. Anastomosis was bilateral in 36 patients and unilateral in 20. The 1-month mortality in the study group was 9%; median survival was 6 months. In patients surviving >1 month, a marked and persistent decrease in cholestasis was achieved in 87%, although complete return to normal was rare. Among the patients with a marked decrease in cholestasis, 72% had no or only mild clinical symptoms such as fever or jaundice. CONCLUSIONS: Peripheral hepatojejunostomy is a feasible and reasonably effective palliative treatment for patients with irresectable tumors of the liver hilum. In patients undergoing exploratory laparotomy for attempted curative resection, this procedure frequently leads to persistent-although rarely complete-decompression of the biliary tree. In a few cases it may also be used for bridging to transplantation or liver resection after relief of cholestasis.  (+info)

Reconstruction for chronic dysfunction of ileoanal pouches. (5/18686)

OBJECTIVE: A retrospective review was performed to determine the results after surgical reconstruction for chronic dysfunction of ileal pouch-anal procedures for ulcerative colitis and familial colonic polyposis at a university medical center. METHODS: During the 20-year period from 1978 to 1998, 601 patients underwent colectomy and ileal pouch-anal anastomosis (IPAA) for ulcerative colitis, familial colonic polyposis, or Hirschsprung's disease. A J pouch was used for 351 patients, a lateral pouch for 221, an S pouch for 6, and a straight pull-through for 23. Acute complications after pouch construction have been detailed in previous publications and are not included in this study. Chronic pouch stasis with diarrhea, frequency, urgency, and soiling gradually became more severe in 164 patients (27.3%), associated with pouch enlargement, an elongated efferent limb, and obstruction to pouch outflow, largely related to the pouch configuration used during the authors' early clinical experience. These patients were sufficiently symptomatic to be considered for reconstruction (mean 68 months after IPAA). Transanal resection of an elongated IPAA spout was performed on 58 patients; abdominoperineal mobilization of the pouch with resection and tapering of the lower end (AP reconstruction) and ileoanal anastomosis on 83; pouch removal and new pouch construction on 7; and conversion of a straight pull-through to a pouch on 16. RESULTS: Good long-term results (mean 7.7 years) with improvement in symptoms occurred in 98% of transanal resections, 91.5% of AP reconstructions, 86% of new pouch constructions, and 100% of conversions of a straight pull-through to a pouch. The average number of bowel movements per 24 hours at 6 months was 4.8. Complications occurred in 11.6% of reconstructed patients. Five of the 164 patients (3.1%) required eventual pouch removal and permanent ileostomy. The high rate of pouch revision in this series of patients undergoing IPAA is due to a policy of aggressive correction when patients do not experience an optimal functional result, or have a progressive worsening of their status. CONCLUSIONS: Although occasionally a major undertaking, reconstruction of ileoanal pouches with progressive dysfunction due to large size or a long efferent limb has resulted in marked improvement in intestinal function in >93% of patients and has reduced the need for late pouch removal.  (+info)

Risk of major liver resection in patients with underlying chronic liver disease: a reappraisal. (6/18686)

OBJECTIVE: To explore the relation of patient age, status of liver parenchyma, presence of markers of active hepatitis, and blood loss to subsequent death and complications in patients undergoing a similar major hepatectomy for the same disease using a standardized technique. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: Major liver resection carries a high risk of postoperative liver failure in patients with chronic liver disease. However, this underlying liver disease may comprise a wide range of pathologic changes that have, in the past, not been well defined. METHODS: The nontumorous liver of 55 patients undergoing a right hepatectomy for hepatocellular carcinoma was classified according to a semiquantitative grading of fibrosis. The authors analyzed the influence of this pathologic feature and of other preoperative variables on the risk of postoperative death and complications. RESULTS: Serum bilirubin and prothrombin time increased on postoperative day 1, and their speed of recovery was influenced by the severity of fibrosis. Incidence of death from liver failure was 32% in patients with grade 4 fibrosis (cirrhosis) and 0% in patients with grade 0 to 3 fibrosis. The preoperative serum aspartate transaminase (ASAT) level ranged from 68 to 207 IU/l in patients with cirrhosis who died, compared with 20 to 62 in patients with cirrhosis who survived. CONCLUSION: A major liver resection such as a right hepatectomy may be safely performed in patients with underlying liver disease, provided no additional risk factors are present. Patients with a preoperative increase in ASAT should undergo a liver biopsy to rule out the presence of grade 4 fibrosis, which should contraindicate this resection.  (+info)

Perioperative growth hormone treatment and functional outcome after major abdominal surgery: a randomized, double-blind, controlled study. (7/18686)

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)

Is early post-operative treatment with 5-fluorouracil possible without affecting anastomotic strength in the intestine? (8/18686)

Early post-operative local or systemic administration of 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) is under investigation as a means to improve outcome after resection of intestinal malignancies. It is therefore quite important to delineate accurately its potentially negative effects on anastomotic repair. Five groups (n = 24) of rats underwent resection and anastomosis of both ileum and colon: a control group and four experimental groups receiving daily 5-FU, starting immediately after operation or after 1, 2 or 3 days. Within each group, the drug (or saline) was delivered either intraperitoneally (n = 12) or intravenously (n = 12). Animals were killed 7 days after operation and healing was assessed by measurement of anastomotic bursting pressure, breaking strength and hydroxyproline content. In all cases, 5-FU treatment from the day of operation or from day 1 significantly (P<0.025) and severely suppressed wound strength; concomitantly, the anastomotic hydroxyproline content was reduced. Depending on the location of the anastomosis and the route of 5-FU administration, even a period of 3 days between operation and first dosage seemed insufficient to prevent weakening of the anastomosis. The effects of intravenous administration, though qualitatively similar, were quantitatively less dramatic than those observed after intraperitoneal delivery. Post-operative treatment with 5-FU, if started within the first 3 days after operation, is detrimental to anastomotic strength and may compromise anastomotic integrity.  (+info)

Methods We analysed data for patients undergoing major non-cardiac surgery in 2008 from The American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database (a prospective validated outcomes registry from 211 hospitals worldwide in 2008). We obtained anonymised data for 30-day mortality and morbidity (cardiac, respiratory, CNS, urinary tract, wound, sepsis, and venous thromboembolism outcomes), demographics, and preoperative and perioperative risk factors. We used multivariate logistic regression to assess the adjusted and modified (nine predefined risk factor subgroups) eff ect of anaemia, which was defi ned as mild (haematocrit concentration ,29-,39% in men and ,29-,36% in women) or moderate-to-severe (≤29% in men and women) on postoperative outcomes.. Interpretation Preoperative anaemia, even to a mild degree, is independently associated with an increased risk of 30-day morbidity and mortality in patients undergoing major non-cardiac surgery." ...
We present a complete national six-year cohort of gastro-esophageal and pancreatic resections for cancer in Norway with major complications and survival. Suffering one or more major postoperative complications was associated with both considerably increased early mortality and statistically significant decreased long-term survival. Educational level did not affect the relationship between complications and survival.. Several studies have demonstrated an association between postoperative complications and decreased survival [5, 6]. This has led to theories suggesting an immune-suppressive effect of postoperative complications that might lead to cancer recurrence [5, 8, 9]. A recent meta-analysis reported a hazard ratio (HR) of 1.28 for decreased overall survival after any postoperative complication [6], the cut-offs for early mortality were not reported [6]. We found a similar risk of decreased survival associated with major complications if patients suffering early mortality were excluded (HR = ...
Postoperative complications are major healthcare problems and are associated with a reduced short-term and long-term survival after surgery. Major surgery is associated with a predictable and usually transient Systemic Inflammatory Response (SIRS), depending on the magnitude of the surgical trauma. An excessive SIRS syndrome participates to the development of postoperative organ dysfunction, infection and mortality. Corticosteroids may decrease the postsurgical SIRS in cardiac surgery: in a large multicenter randomized trial, a single intravenous administration of high-dose dexamethasone did not reduce the incidence of a composite endpoint of adverse events but was associated with a reduced incidence of postoperative pulmonary complications and infections and with a reduction in hospital stay. However, a similar study, recently published in the Lancet was negative. Evidences from one meta-analysis, including 11 studies of moderate quality (439 patients in total), suggest that intraoperative ...
The researchers, from St. Michaels Hospital in Toronto, also found no association between the risk for complications and a patients American Society of Anesthesiologists, or ASA, status, which assesses a patients physical health before surgery.. "The fact that age and ASA status were not risk factors for postoperative complications is somewhat surprising because these are the factors a clinician would typically look at when assessing a patients risk of developing complications after surgery," study author Dr. Jennifer Watt said in a hospital news release.. "Older adults are a diverse group of patients whose risk of postoperative complications is not solely defined by their age, co-morbidities [multiple health problems] or the type of surgical procedure they receive," Watt said.. "This study highlights how common postoperative complications are among older adults undergoing elective surgery, and the importance of geriatric syndromes, including frailty, in identifying older adults who may be ...
Hazardous drinking affects human health in several ways, even in patients without an alcohol-related disease. These include an increased risk of surgical complications. In addition to the well known alcohol-induced disorders of the liver, pancreas, and nervous system; heavy drinking affects cardiac function, immune capacity (the bodys ability to defend itself against infections), haemostasis (blood clot formation), and surgical stress responses. Cardiac insufficiency and arrhythmias (a disorder of the heart rate) are common among hazardous drinkers. Both are important risk factors for the development of postoperative complications, such as postoperative infections, cardiopulmonary complications (heart and lung complications), and bleeding episodes. Reduced immune capacity is found in most patients drinking three or more alcohol units (AU) per day.. The objective of this review was to assess the effect of alcohol interventions on complications following surgery. Interventions included all ...

BACKGROUND: Anticoagulants reduce the risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE) after total joint replacement. However, concern remains that pharmacologic VTE prophylaxis can lead to bleeding, which may impact on postoperative complications such as infections and reoperations. METHODS AND FINDINGS: From the Global Orthopedic Registry (GLORY), we reviewed 3,755 patients in US who elected for primary total hip or knee arthroplasty, received either warfarin or low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) as VTE prophylactics, and had up-to-90-day follow-up after discharge. We compared incidence rates of VTE, infections and other complications between LMWH and warfarin groups, and used multivariate analyses with propensity score weighting to generate the odds ratio (OR). Patients receiving LMWH tended to be older and higher in the American Society of Anesthesiologists grade scores. In contrast, warfarin was used more frequently for hip arthroplasty with longer duration among patients with more pre-existing comorbidity
Short-term postoperative data and medium-term recurrence and survival were compared and analyzed. In all patients resection and anastomosis was generally performed for right-sided lesions, whereas Hartmanns operation was the commonest procedure for more distally situated neoplastic lesions. A loop diverting colostomy was used most commonly in patients with peritonitis. As showed our previous studies, the complication rates and mortality were equal when single-stage and multi-stage procedures were compared, so in our clinic we tried to prefer single-stage surgeries. Median hospital stay was 11.5 days (range 9-14 days) in group 1 and 2 days (range 4-6 days) in group 2. Postoperative complications rate was significantly equal in two groups. However the cardiopulmonary complications were lower in the second group of patients. There were 5 anastomotic leaks in the first group and 2 in the second, which is comparable. Eleven patients died post-operatively (25 days), an overall postoperative mortality ...
Objective To investigate the effect of nursing intervention on postoperative complications of bladder perfusion in patients with bladder tumors. Methods Between January 2015 and December2017,101 patients with bladder tumors treated at Hanzhong Railway Hospital were selected. According to the random number table method,they were divided into an observation group( 51 patients) and a control group( 50 patients). The observation group was given targeted nursing intervention based on the conventional nursing and the control group only received conventional nursing. Complications and patients satisfaction were compared between the two groups. Results The incidence of complications was 11. 8% in patients undergong bladder perfusion in the observation group and 30. 0% for the control group( P 0. 05). The satisfaction was 92. 2% for the observation group and 72. 0% for( P 0. 05). Conclusion Nursing intervention can significantly reduce the incidence of postoperative complications in patients with bladder
With better medical quality and living condition, geriatric patient population is growing and often pose a significant challenge in surgery and anesthesia. Geriatric patients are relative fragile and also develop more complication after anesthesia than general population [1, 15]. The most common postoperative complication is pulmonary complication and the secondary is cardiac event, leading to longer hospitalization and increased mortality. In previous study in Taiwan, relationship between postoperative complications and mortality risk was established, but there was no analysis between preoperative comorbidities and post-operative mortality. The leading preoperative comorbidities were listed as following: Hypertension, Diabetes mellitus, Coronary artery disease, Pulmonary disease, Malignancy, Hepatic dysfunction, and Renal dysfunction. Detailed evaluation and better communicating the aforementioned risk factors to these patients before operation are suggested for improving anesthesia quality and ...

Prior studies of resource use for coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery have either focused on a limited number of hospitals or have used charges instead of costs. We used a large statewide database (n = 6791) to study predictors of cost and length of stay (LOS) for CABG surgery. We used linear regression to sequentially model (a) specific procedures performed, (b) preoperative patient characteristics, and (c) postoperative events to determine the relative impact of these 3 factors on resource use. We then used the resulting models to calculate adjusted mean hospital costs and LOS. These 3 factors were all significantly associated with resource use. Postoperative events were the greatest determinant of costs, while preoperative characteristics were the greatest determinant of LOS. Despite risk adjustment for these factors, resource use differed significantly across 12 hospitals (mean cost range, $22,200 to $41,900; mean LOS range, 11 to 18 days), suggesting that some institutions may need to
Advances in operative techniques and postoperative care have led to a further decline in the postoperative complication rates following a lobectomy with a mortality rate of 1-9% reported in recent studies7-9 and morbidity occurring at an alarming rate of 11-47%.8-10 These mortality and morbidity data are generally obtained from eligible patients who are selected on the basis of their pulmonary function and other organ functions. We also selected surgical candidates on the basis of either a predicted postoperative FVC of ,800 ml/m2 or an FEV1 of ,600 ml/m2. The resulting 0% mortality suggests that our criteria appear to be generally acceptable. However, some morbidity still remains even in these selected patients. We therefore evaluated whether it is possible to predict pulmonary complications after a lobectomy because even patients eligible for surgery develop pulmonary complications.. Many investigators have tried to identify the factors that predict the occurrence of postoperative ...

We observed a noteworthy amount of variation in complication rates. For example, although ≈12% of facilities reported period 1 complication rates ,7%, 31 of the 94 facilities had no complications at all. Although there was some tendency for facilities with high complication rates in period 1 to report relatively high complication rates in period 2 (Spearman correlation, 0.04), most of the differences in complication rates in period 1 were not maintained over time.. Several previous studies have documented important variations in complication rates for CEA, including variation by facility characteristics such as the volume of procedures.10-12⇓⇓ Implicit in the interpretation of facility-to-facility variation is the assumption that complication rates are reasonably stable within individual facilities. Our findings call into question this assumption of stability.. This basic result has a number of possible explanations. First, noting that our analysis uses unadjusted complication rates, these ...
A fundamental ethical principle in surgery is that a patients voluntary consent is obtained prior to any invasive procedure. This can be verbal or written but it demands that the patient has received prior, sufficient, appropriate information to be able to make a reasoned judgement on what is being offered to them. As I indicated in the section on surgical outcome there is a partnership between the patient and the healthcare professionals to reduce any potential risks and to strive to achieve a satisfactory outcome to all. Clearly this means that the individual patient must receive adequate information and it is my practice to routinely do this. Nevertheless some patients require more information than others and hopefully this section will help in providing the extra.. Risks and complications can be considered in a number of different ways but I propose to look at them simply from the aspect of the general complications that can occur with any surgical procedure and anaesthetic and then the ...
The surgical treatment of the ulcerative colitis (UC) remains associate to a significant morbidity (up to 60%). Anastomotic fistula and pelvic sepsis are the most severe complications which could dramatically compromise the surgical issue and functional status. Thanks to the current therapeutic arsenal and the evolution of health care paradigms, the quality of life of patients plays a key role in the modern global management of these medical conditions. Biotherapies (e.g anti-TNF) are widely used to treat patients with UC. Anti-TNF and anti-integrins have an effect on the immune response and can theoretically aggravate the infectious disease. Their potential impact on postoperative complications after ileo anal anastomosis (AIA) remains debated. Very few studies have looked at other biotherapies including vedolizumab. All studies are retrospective series with small sample size. Here again the conclusion remain contradictory. Lightner et al. showed an increased risk of surgical site infection for ...
Most commonly referred to as simply "bypass surgery," this surgery is often performed in people who have angina (chest pain) and coronary artery disease (where plaque has built up in the arteries). During the surgery, a bypass is created by grafting a piece of a vein above and below the blocked area of a coronary artery, enabling blood to flow around the obstruction. Veins are usually taken from the leg, but arteries from the chest may also be used to create a bypass graft ...
Every surgeon knows that sometimes the risks of surgery outweigh the benefits. And the biggest reason for this is because of a little thing we call risk factors. By studying who has a good outcome and who has poor results after any procedure, its possible to predict who will do well and who wont. Some of the most common risk factors that have the potential to disrupt healing or contribute to post-operative complications are known. These can include patient factors such as age, sex (male versus female), body-size ratio called body mass index, general health, and the presence of conditions such as diabetes. In other cases, surgical factors are more likely to increase the risk of problems developing. Length of time in the operating room, type of incision used, size of implant, type of surgical procedures used are examples of intra-operative risk factors. In the case of a total joint replacement for the ankle, the presence of inflammatory conditions (e.g., rheumatoid arthritis) is an important ...
Results The prevalence of symptoms was nearly identical for households in VAS-eligible villages compared with households in VAS-ineligible villages. However, households eligible for VAS were 4.96 percentage points (95% CI 1 to 8.9; p=0.014) more likely to seek treatment for their symptoms. The increase in treatment seeking was more pronounced for symptoms of cardiac conditions, the condition most frequently covered by VAS. Respondents from VAS-eligible villages reported greater improvements in well-being after a hospitalisation in all categories assessed and they were statistically significant in 3 of the 6 categories (walking ability, pain and anxiety). Respondents eligible for VAS were 9.4 percentage points less likely to report any infection after their hospitalisation (95% CI −20.2 to 1.4; p=0.087) and 16.5 percentage points less likely to have to be rehospitalised after the initial hospitalisation (95% CI −28.7 to −4.3; p,0.01). ...

IN BRIEF This study examined whether elevated A1C in patients with diabetes is associated with a higher incidence of postoperative infections and other complications. Researchers followed 50 noncardiac surgical patients for 7 postoperative days. Half of the patients had an A1C ,7% and the other half had an A1C ≥7%. The two groups were otherwise comparable except that the higher-A1C group had significantly higher pre-induction and postoperative blood glucose levels, with wider variability in the first 24 hours after surgery. During the first postoperative week, 11 patients developed complications, of whom 10 were in the higher-A1C group. Elevated A1C, unlike a single preoperative blood glucose value, may predict difficult postoperative glucose control and postsurgical complications. ...

It is normal to be afraid of surgery. If given a choice, all of us would stay away from surgery. Our reasons for avoiding surgery are obvious. Surgeries come with a baggage of complications. Rarely a complication is severe enough to offset any potential benefit promised by the surgery. The complication itself becomes a bigger problem than the original illness. A complication can happen with the best surgeon having the purest intentions. Therefore it is wise to be scared of surgery. Yet we often find ourselves facing surgery. The truth is many problems cannot be solved effectively unless tackled by surgery. Surgery today is far more successful due to improved knowledge, experience and technology. Many patients have undergone surgery and have benefitted tremendously. So if a patient is offered surgery, how should he/she approach the situation?. The first question to be answered is Is my problem bad enough? This is an obvious question and most patients address it correctly. Doing a major surgery ...

Rationale: In the Netherlands, about 1.4 million undergo anesthesia and surgery on a yearly base. The number of patients in a medium to high-risk population who develop a complication after surgery is estimated at 30%. Postsurgical mortality is mainly caused by the lack of a standardized follow-up of patients who develop a postoperative complication, which results in failure to rescue. The TRACE study aims to investigate whether standardized anesthesia visits on day 1 and 3 following surgery reduces 30-day mortality by decreasing failure to rescue rates ...

This work aimed at to study the pre-penetration and penetration of Xanthomonas axonopodis in eucalyptus leaves, to verify the importance of the stomatal index and of the leaf age in the susceptibility of the plant to the pathogen and to study the influence of the plant nutritional status in the susceptibility to the disease. By means of scanning electron microscopy, it was observed that the bacteria penetrates the leaves by the stomata and that formation of microcolonies has occurred in the substomatal chamber and inside the secretors cavities 6 hours after the inoculation. At the eighty day after the inoculation, the rupture of the epidermis was observed and inside the tissue was a great mass of bacteria involved in a mucilage-like substance. The amount of bacteria increased with the incubation period. The influence of stomata in the susceptibility of the plants to the bacterial blight was studied being used clones with different resistance levels. Samples of leaves of same position in the ...

While some small series of lateral lumbar fusion have discussed complications, no results from large studies have been reported.. Methods. A total of 600 patients were treated with a lateral approach to fusion (XLIF) for degenerative spinal conditions. Data were collected prospectively on all patients and analyzed for demographic, diagnostic, and hospitalization information to identify operative and early postoperative complications. Documented complication types and rates in this large series were compared with smaller prior reports on lateral approach fusions, as well as other minimally invasive (mini-anterior lumbar interbody fusion ...
November 2, 2017-The Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS) announced that findings from a comparison of percutaneous access versus femoral cutdown during endovascular repair of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) were published by Samuel L. Chen, MD, et al in the Journal of Vascular Surgery (2017;66:1364-1370).. The study addresses the question of whether the fully percutaneous technique offers any benefit over open femoral cutdown in the emergency setting. Investigators reviewed a large national database and found that using an entirely percutaneous approach is as safe as incision-based approaches.. According to SVS, led by Roy M. Fujitani, MD, researchers retrospectively studied 502 patients who underwent ruptured endovascular aortic aneurysm repair and were entered into the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program between 2011 and 2014. The percentages of different endovascular repair access rates were 24% for bilateral percutaneous, 64% for bilateral ...
BACKGROUND/AIM Surgical treatment of patients with gastric adenocarcinoma means the total excision of a tumor and the pathways of its spreading with the risk of operational complications as low as possible. The aim of this study was to evaluate the type and frequency of early postoperative complications and mortality after a radical surgical treatment of patients with gastric adenocarcinoma. METHODS Complication rates and postoperative mortality were studied in 70 consecutive patients in whom a radical surgical procedure, gastrectomy (total or subtotal) with D2 lymphadenectomy, was performed. In the early postoperative period, the frequencies of general and specific complications were detected. The frequencies of complications were compared between the groups of patients according to the defined clinical, operative and pathohistological paramethers. RESULTS The overall morbidity and mortality rates were 27.14% and 5.71%, respectively Pancreatic fistula in five, and pleural effusion in three patients

The corresponding records data was evaluated for novel postoperative complications in six categories; postoperative infection, nervous system, pain, urinary tract infection, osteomyelitis and joint derangement. Complication rates were investigated at 90 days and six months post-operatively, with a 30-day point used to evaluate infection rates. Novel lumbar pathology was also investigated as an outcome.. The researchers observed an incidence of 62 complications within the first 90 days (13.2%), and 77 (16.4%) within six months of the procedure. An infection rate of 4.1% (19) was observed within six months. Novel lumbar pathology was found in 3.6% of patients (n=17) at 90 days following the procedure, and in 5.3% (25) at six months, with a 9.1% (15) burden of incidence on the male population by this time point..

The present study showed that the short-term outcomes, including overall postoperative complication rates, mortality rates were similar between elderly and non-elderly patients. Furthermore, the details of the perioperative course and length of hospital stay were similar between the groups. Therefore, our results suggest that LAC is a safe and feasible regardless of the age of the patient.. The overall complication rates were 19.0% in Group A and 15.7% in Group B. There were no statistically significant differences (P = 0.587). Anastomotic leakage (5.9%) and surgical site infection (2.0%) were main complications in Group A. Surgical site infection was the most frequently diagnosed complication in Group B, followed by ileus, leakage, diarrhea and delirium. Moreover, no mortality was observed in both groups. Similar results were observed in previous reports. For example, Inoue et al. evaluated efficacy and safety of laparoscopic surgery in elderly patients with colorectal cancer [22]. They ...
Study in the Journal of the American College of Surgeons Makes the Case for Performing More Procedures on Day of Admission. Delaying elective surgical procedures after a patient has been admitted to the hospital significantly increases the risk of infectious complications and raises hospital costs, according to the results of a new study in the December issue of the Journal of the American College of Surgeons.. The occurrence of infection following surgical procedures continues to be a major source of morbidity and expense despite extensive prevention efforts that have been implemented through educational programs, clinical guidelines, and hospital-based policies. The authors of the study queried a nationwide sample of 163,006 patients, 40 years of age and older, from 2003 to 2007. They evaluated patients who developed postoperative complications following one of three high-volume elective surgical procedures: 87,318 coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) procedures, 46,728 colon resections, and ...

BACKGROUND: The effects of individualised perioperative lung-protective ventilation (based on the open-lung approach [OLA]) on postoperative complications is unknown. We aimed to investigate the effects of intraoperative and postoperative ventilatory management in patients scheduled for abdominal surgery, compared with standard protective ventilation. METHODS: We did this prospective, multicentre, randomised controlled trial in 21 teaching hospitals in Spain. We enrolled patients who were aged 18 years or older, were scheduled to have abdominal surgery with an expected time of longer than 2 h, had intermediate-to-high-risk of developing postoperative pulmonary complications, and who had a body-mass index less than 35 kg/m2 ...
This study describes the occurrence of postoperative complications after major cardiovascular surgery in a large multicity Italian sample. Socioeconomic disadvantage is associated with worse outcomes after cardiac surgery, but no clear indication of a similar relationship for vascular surgery has been found. Disparities in outcomes after cardiac surgery are strongest in public low-volume hospitals.. There is still little research on the relationship between SEP and healthcare outcomes and the results are inconsistent.3 10 21 26 27 Our study confirms previous results for CABG and contributes to the knowledge on other types of cardiovascular procedures.7 9 10 Higher deprivation score has been associated with younger age, more comorbidities, and more postoperative cardiovascular complications after CABG.9 18 It is of note that the majority of available studies have focused on racial disparities among patients over 65 years in the USA, whereas less information is available on other indicators of ...
Patients and Methods: Surgically managed burn patients admitted between 2010-14 were included. Operative stay was defined as the time from admission until the last operation, postoperative stay as the time from the last operation until discharge. The difference in variation was analysed with F-test. A retrospective review of medical records was done to explore reasons for extended postoperative stay. Multivariable regression was used to assess factors associated with operative stay and postoperative stay.less thanbr /greater thanResults: Operative stay/TBSA% showed less variation than total duration/TBSA% (F test = 2.38, pless than0.01). The size of the burn, and the number of operations, were the independent factors that influenced operative stay (R2 0.65). Except for the size of the burn other factors were associated with duration of postoperative stay: wound related, psychological and other medical causes, advanced medical support, and accommodation arrangements before discharge, of which the ...
A systematic review of the efficacy of a specific perioperative haemodynamic management strategy was performed to explore the balance between therapeutic benefit and adverse effects. Whilst mortality and length of hospital stay were reduced in the intervention group, pooling of morbidity data for between-group comparisons was limited by the heterogeneity of morbidity reporting between different studies. Classification, criteria and summation of morbidity outcome variables were inconsistent between studies, precluding analyses of pooled data for many types of morbidity. A similar pattern was observed in a second systematic review of randomised controlled trials of perioperative interventions published in high impact surgical journals. The Post-operative Morbidity Survey (POMS), a previously published method of describing short-term postoperative morbidity, lacked validation. The POMS was prospectively collected in 439 patients undergoing elective major surgery in a UK teaching hospital. The ...
Objective: To identify bronchoscopy-related complications and discomfort, meaningful complication rates, and predictors.. Method: We conducted a systematic literature search in PubMed on 8 February 2016, using a search strategy including the PICO model, on complications and discomfort related to bronchoscopy and related sampling techniques.. Results: The search yielded 1,707 hits, of which 45 publications were eligible for full review. Rates of mortality and severe complications were low. Other complications, for instance, hypoxaemia, bleeding, pneumothorax, and fever, were usually not related to patient characteristics or aspects of the procedure, and complication rates showed considerable ranges. Measures of patient discomfort differed considerably, and results were difficult to compare between different study populations.. Conclusion: More research on safety aspects of bronchoscopy is needed to conclude on complication rates and patient- and procedure-related predictors of complications and ...
Recent myocardial infarction is known to be a significant risk factor for postoperative complications following elective, noncardiac surgery
by admin , Apr 10, 2014. Pulmonary complications after surgery are relatively common, occurring in roughly 3% of patients who undergo non-cardiac operations. When compared with other adverse postoperative outcomes, pulmonary complications are also among the most costly. Some analyses have shown that these complications can increase hospital length of stay by as many as 14 days when compared with a lack of these complications. "Clinicians have little guidance on how to prevent pulmonary complications after operations," says David McAneny, MD. "Efforts to standardize care may reduce the incidence of adverse pulmonary outcomes." Testing an Intervention In a study published in JAMA Surgery, Dr. McAneny and colleagues tested an intervention designed to reduce the incidence of postoperative pulmonary complications. "Our goal was to create a simple, inexpensive pulmonary care program that was easily understood and remembered by patients, their families, and our staff," says Dr. McAneny. "We included ...

AF is the most common complication occurring after cardiac surgery.1 2 3 Despite advances in CPB, cardioplegic arrest, and surgical techniques, its incidence has paradoxically increased in recent years18 as the result of surgical patients being older and sicker and advances in ECG continuous monitoring technology.3 It is frequently not well tolerated, and patients may have symptoms including temporary hemodynamic instability, thromboembolic events, and shortness of breath or chest discomfort and has been shown to increase costs and to lengthen hospital stay.1 3 Many preoperative and postoperative factors have been suggested to increase the incidence of postoperative AF after conventional CABG such as advanced age, hypertension,3 withdrawal of β-blocker drug,19 RCA stenosis,5 respiratory complications,6 and bleeding.7 Strategies directed toward reduction of postoperative AF have focused on several drugs, given prophylactically, such as β-adrenoceptor antagonists,1 19 calcium antagonists,9 ...
A number of risk indexes have been developed in an attempt to predict postoperative hospital stay, morbidity, and mortality in patients undergoing heart surgery. Although these indexes have been extensively studied, they have been found to have questionable predictive value, accuracy, and overall usability in the clinical setting. Currently, there is no gold standard for preoperative risk assessment in heart surgery patients (5-9). Before this study, preoperative BNP has not been evaluated for its ability to predict complications in the postoperative period after heart surgery, nor has BNP ever been part of the standard preoperative work-up. Furthermore, none of the risk assessment indexes incorporate preoperative BNP levels into their calculations despite its proven correlation with ventricular dysfunction and ability to accurately diagnose HF.. Our study demonstrates that preoperative BNP levels may provide a novel advance in eliciting risk of open-heart surgery in male veterans, mainly as a ...
This Revised Cardiac Risk Index (RCRI) calculator determines risk of perioperative cardiac events in patients undergoing heart surgery.
Complications following surgical procedures are not only associated with significant morbidity and mortality, but also add immensely to the psychological burden of the patient and are disappointing for the surgical team. Recent research has led to a greater understanding of the response to surgery and anaesthesia, and great advances have been made in pre-operative preparation with appropriate investigations and pharmacological prophylaxis.

An aorto-cutaneous fistula is a rare complication that occurs after aortic surgery. Due to its rarity, postoperative complications are not normally highlighted in most standard teaching. We report here a case of aorto-cutaneous fistula after surgical treatment of a Stanford type A aortic dissection (AD) in a 67-year-old Chinese male. The patient presented with severe right heart dysfunction and a mass was found in the upper-middle of his chest, which started bleeding in the next years. On admission, preoperative aortic computed tomography angiography (CTA) showed a huge hematoma located in the anterior superior mediastinum and a shunt between the embedding cavity of the aortic root and right atrium ...

Alan R. Hartman, MD, chair of cardiovascular and thoracic surgery at North Shore-LIJ, and his colleagues conducted a retrospective review of data from cases conducted in the health system that had been submitted to the New York State Cardiac Surgery Reporting System and the Society of Thoracic Surgeons. Thirteen surgeons in three of the health systems largest hospitals brought 96 patients into their operating rooms over a consecutive nine-year period. Eight of those surgeons had more than 15 years experience in cardiothoracic medicine. In addition to 30-day mortality, the study team collected data on post-operative length of stay, discharge location, readmission status and post-operative complications. All of the patients who had undergone surgery had acute, centrally located pulmonary embolus and severe global hyperkinetic right ventricular (RV) dysfunction. All patients had either a large clot burden in the main pulmonary arteries or a saddle embolism, which is a clot that blocks the ...

Purpose : We aimed to compare early postoperative complications between trabeculectomy and Ex-PRESS implantation.. Methods : Enrolled patients with primary open-angle or exfoliative glaucoma were randomly assigned to receive trabeculectomy (trabeculectomy group) or Ex-PRESS implantation (Ex-PRESS group) (FIGURE 1). Primary outcomes were early postoperative complications, including postoperative anterior chamber inflammation, frequencies of hyphema, flat anterior chamber, choroidal detachment, hypotonic maculopathy, and visual acuity. Secondary outcomes were open anterior chamber duration during surgery, postoperative intraocular pressure, postoperative anti-glaucoma medications, frequencies of laser suture lysis and bleb needling, and the relationship between iris contact with the Ex-PRESS tube and anterior chamber depth in the Ex-PRESS group.. Results : Sixty-four patients were divided between the groups. The Ex-PRESS group had significantly lower flare values between 7 days and 1 month after ...
Impact of perioperative myocardial infarction on angiographic and clinical outcomes following coronary artery bypass grafting (from PRoject of Ex-vivo Vein graft ENgineering via Transfection [PREVENT] IV).
The inflammatory response has been shown to be a major contributor to acute kidney injury. Considering that laparoscopic surgery is beneficial in reducing the inflammatory response, we compared the incidence of postoperative acute kidney injury between laparoscopic liver resection and open liver resection. Among 1173 patients who underwent liver resection surgery, 222 of 926 patients who underwent open liver resection were matched with 222 of 247 patients who underwent laparoscopic liver resection, by using propensity score analysis. The incidence of postoperative acute kidney injury assessed according to the creatinine criteria of the Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes definition was compared between those 1:1 matched groups. A total 77 (6.6%) cases of postoperative acute kidney injury occurred. Before matching, the incidence of acute kidney injury after laparoscopic liver resection was significantly lower than that after open liver resection [1.6% (4/247) vs. 7.9% (73/926), P < 0.001]. ...
Sara A Hennessy, MD2, Tjasa Hranjec, MD, MS1, Peter T Hallowell, MD2, Bruce D Schirmer, MD2. 2University of Virginia, 1University of Southwestern Texas. Introduction: Approximately 3-13% of patients with abdominal surgery develop a ventral hernia and over 350,000 ventral hernias are repaired annually. A surgical site infection (SSI) after ventral hernia repair (VHR), either open or laparoscopic, is a highly morbid complication associated with increasing health care costs, hernia recurrences, mesh infections and their complications. With the many advances in preoperative, operative and post-operative care the current incidence of surgical sites infections after laparoscopic VHR is unclear. We hypothesized that the incidence of surgical site infections is significantly reduced with a laparoscopic ventral hernia repair.. Methods and Procedures: The prospectively collected American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database was retrospectively reviewed for all VHRs ...
Introduction: We report our experience with laparoscopic major liver resection in Korea based on a multicenter retrospective study. Materials and methods: Data from 1,009 laparoscopic liver resections conducted from 2001 to 2011 were retrospectively collected. Twelve tertiary medical centers with specialized hepatic surgeons participated in this study. Results: Among 1,009 laparoscopic liver resections, major liver resections were performed in 265 patients as treatment for hepatocellular carcinoma, metastatic tumor, intrahepatic duct stone, and other conditions. The most frequently performed procedure was left hemihepatectomy (165 patients), followed by right hemihepatectomy (53 patients). Pure laparoscopic procedure was performed in 190 patients including 19 robotic liver resections. Hand-assisted laparoscopic liver resection was performed in three patients and laparoscopy-assisted liver resection in 55 patients. Open conversion was performed in 17 patients (6.4 %). Mean operative time and ...

This is the first study to compare the incidence and severity of transplant coronary artery disease in heart-lung and heart transplant recipients with the use of ICUS. The results of this study show that the incidence and severity of transplant coronary artery disease are less in heart-lung transplant recipients than in heart transplant recipients.. A major cause of mortality, and the main cause of retransplantation in heart transplant recipients, is transplant coronary artery disease. As many as 50% of the patients will develop significant angiographic disease by 5 years after transplantation. The majority of the heart-lung transplant recipients who survive the first year do not die as the result of cardiac disease or event.8 9 12 The present study confirms earlier reports that indicate that transplant coronary artery disease, as assessed by quantitative coronary angiography, does not play a major role in the morbidity and mortality of heart-lung transplant recipients.
