Gastric emptying after elective abdominal aortic aneurysm surgery: the case for early postoperative enteral feeding. (2/1088)

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)

Comparison of NHS and private patients undergoing elective transurethral resection of the prostate for benign prostatic hypertrophy. (3/1088)

OBJECTIVES: To compare the operative thresholds and clinical management of men undergoing elective transurethral resection of the prostate for benign prostatic hypertrophy in the NHS and privately. DESIGN: Cohort study of patients recruited by 25 surgeons during 1988. SETTING: Hospitals in Oxford and North West Thames regions. PATIENTS: Of 400 consecutive patients, 129 were excluded because of open surgery (nine), lack of surgeons' information (three), and emergency admission (117) and three failed to give information, leaving 268 patients, 214 NHS patients and 54 private patients. MAIN MEASURES: Sociodemographic factors, prevalence and severity of symptoms, comorbidity, general health (Nottingham health profile) obtained from patient questionnaire preoperatively and reasons for operating, and operative management obtained from surgeons perioperatively. RESULTS: NHS and private patients were similar in severity of symptoms and prevalence of urinary tract abnormalities. They differed in four respects: NHS patients' general health was poorer as a consequence of more comorbid conditions (49, 23% v 7, 13% in severe category); the condition had a greater detrimental effect on their lives (36, 17% v 2, 4% severely affected; p < 0.01); private patients received more personalised care more quickly and were investigated more before surgery, (29, 54% v 60, 20% receiving ultrasonography of the urinary tract); and NHS patients stayed in hospital longer (57, 27% v 3, 6% more than seven days; p < 0.001). CONCLUSIONS: Private patients' need for surgery, judged by symptom severity, was as great as that of NHS patients, and there was no evidence of different operative thresholds in the two sectors, but, judged by impact on lifestyle, NHS patients' need was greater.  (+info)

Direct costs of coronary artery bypass grafting in patients aged 65 years or more and those under age 65. (4/1088)

BACKGROUND: Over the past 20 years, there have been marked increases in rates of coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) among older people in Canada. The objectives of this study were to accurately estimate the direct medical costs of CABG in older patients (age 65 years or more) and to compare CABG costs for this age group with those for patients less than 65 years of age. METHODS: Direct medical costs were estimated from a sample of 205 older and 202 younger patients with triple-vessel or left main coronary artery disease who underwent isolated CABG at The Toronto Hospital, a tertiary care university-affiliated hospital, between Apr. 1, 1991, and Mar. 31, 1992. Costs are expressed in 1992 Canadian dollars from a third-party payer perspective. RESULTS: The mean costs of CABG in older and younger patients respectively were $16,500 and $15,600 for elective, uncomplicated cases, $23,200 and $19,200 for nonelective, uncomplicated cases, $29,200 and $20,300 for elective, complicated cases, and $33,600 and $23,700 for nonelective, complicated cases. Age remained a significant determinant of costs after adjustment for severity of heart disease and for comorbidity. Between 59% and 91% of the cost difference between older and younger patients was accounted for by higher intensive care unit and ward costs. INTERPRETATION: CABG was more costly in older people, especially in complicated cases, even after an attempt to adjust for severity of disease and comorbidity. Future studies should attempt to identify modifiable factors that contribute to longer intensive care and ward stays for older patients.  (+info)

Impact of new guidelines on physicians' ordering of preoperative tests. (5/1088)

OBJECTIVE: To compare the number of preoperative tests ordered for elective ambulatory surgery patients during the 2 years before and the 2 years after the establishment of new hospital testing guidelines. MEASUREMENTS: The patterns of preoperative testing by surgeons and a medical consultant during the 2 years before and the 2 years after the establishment of new guidelines at one orthopedic hospital were reviewed. All tests ordered preoperatively were determined by review of medical records. Preoperative medical histories, physical examinations, and comorbidities were obtained according to a protocol by the medical consultant (author). Perioperative complications were determined by review of intraoperative and postoperative events, which also were recorded according to a protocol. MAIN RESULTS: A total of 640 patients were enrolled, 361 before and 279 after the new guidelines. The mean number of tests decreased from 8.0 before to 5.6 after the new guidelines ( p =.0001) and the percentage decrease for individual tests varied from 23% to 44%. Except for patients with more comorbidity and patients receiving general anesthesia, there were decreases across all patient groups. In multivariate analyses only time of surgery (before or after new guidelines), age, and type of surgery remained statistically significant ( p =.0001 for all comparisons). Despite decreases in surgeons' ordering of tests, the medical consultant did not order more tests after the new guidelines ( p =.60) The majority of patients had no untoward events intraoperatively and postoperatively throughout the study period, with only 6% overall requiring admission to the hospital after surgery, mainly for reasons not related to abnormal tests. Savings from charges totaled $34,000 for the patients in the study. CONCLUSIONS: Although there was variable compliance among physicians, new hospital guidelines were effective in reducing preoperative testing and did not result in increases in untoward perioperative events or in test ordering by the medical consultant.  (+info)

Transfusion practices among patients who did and did not predonate autologous blood before elective cardiac surgery. (6/1088)

BACKGROUND: Preoperative autologous blood donation is commonly used to reduce exposure to allogeneic transfusions among patients undergoing elective cardiac surgery. However, this technique is associated with an overall increase in transfusions (allogeneic or autologous). The authors assessed the impact of transfusion decision-making on the effectiveness of preoperative autologous donation in reducing the frequency of allogeneic transfusions, and its impact on the increased transfusion rate associated with preoperative autologous donation in cardiac surgery. METHODS: This retrospective analysis compared transfusion practices among 176 patients who predonated autologous blood before elective cardiac surgery and 176 matched cardiac surgery patients who did not predonate blood. The impact of decision-making on transfusion exposure was determined using multivariate analyses to account for major perioperative interventions and complications. Odds ratios (ORs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were calculated for exposure to allogeneic blood transfusion or any transfusion, before and after exclusion of transfusions not conforming with selected transfusion criteria. RESULTS: Exposure to allogeneic transfusion was more likely among patients who did not predonate blood than among those who did predonate blood (OR 14.0, 95% CI 5.8-33.8). This finding was still true after exclusion of transfusions not meeting the transfusion criteria (OR 19.3, 95% CI 6.7-55.7). The autologous blood donors were more likely than the nondonors to receive any transfusion (OR 10.8, 95% CI 5.7-20.3). However, this association was substantially attenuated after exclusion of transfusions not meeting the transfusion criteria (OR 1.9, 95% CI 1.1-3.2). INTERPRETATION: Patients who predonated blood before elective cardiac surgery were at lower risk of receiving allogeneic transfusions than the nondonors. This was not because of a deliberate withholding of allogeneic transfusions from autologous donors. However, more liberal transfusion criteria for autologous blood were largely responsible for the increased transfusion rate among the autologous donors.  (+info)

Reducing the risk of major elective surgery: randomised controlled trial of preoperative optimisation of oxygen delivery. (7/1088)

OBJECTIVES: To determine whether preoperative optimisation of oxygen delivery improves outcome after major elective surgery, and to determine whether the inotropes, adrenaline and dopexamine, used to enhance oxygen delivery influence outcome. DESIGN: Randomised controlled trial with double blinding between inotrope groups. SETTING: York District Hospital, England. SUBJECTS: 138 patients undergoing major elective surgery who were at risk of developing postoperative complications either because of the surgery or the presence of coexistent medical conditions. INTERVENTIONS: Patients were randomised into three groups. Two groups received invasive haemodynamic monitoring, fluid, and either adrenaline or dopexamine to increase oxygen delivery. Inotropic support was continued during surgery and for at least 12 hours afterwards. The third group (control) received routine perioperative care. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Hospital mortality and morbidity. RESULTS: Overall, 3/92 (3%) preoptimised patients died compared with 8/46 controls (17%) (P=0.007). There were no differences in mortality between the treatment groups, but 14/46 (30%) patients in the dopexamine group developed complications compared with 24/46 (52%) patients in the adrenaline group (difference 22%, 95% confidence interval 2% to 41%) and 28 patients (61%) in the control group (31%, 11% to 50%). The use of dopexamine was associated with a decreased length of stay in hospital. CONCLUSION: Routine preoperative optimisation of patients undergoing major elective surgery would be a significant and cost effective improvement in perioperative care.  (+info)

Survival of donor leukocyte subpopulations in immunocompetent transfusion recipients: frequent long-term microchimerism in severe trauma patients. (8/1088)

We recently reported detection of a transient increase in circulating donor leukocytes (WBCs) in immunocompetent recipients 3 to 5 days posttransfusion (tx) (Blood 85:1207, 1995). We have now characterized survival kinetics of specific donor WBC subsets in additional tx populations. Eight female elective surgery patients (pts) were sampled pre-tx and on days 1, 3, 5, 7, and 14 post-tx. Ten female trauma pts transfused with a total of 4 to 18 U of relatively fresh red blood cells were sampled up to 1.5 years post-tx. WBC subsets from frozen whole blood were isolated using CD4, CD8 (T cell), CD15 (myeloid), and CD19 (B cell) antibody-coated magnetic beads. Donor WBCs were counted by quantitative polymerase chain reaction (PCR) of male-specific sex determining region (SRY) sequences. PCR HLA typing and mixed leukocyte reaction (MLR) between recipient and donor WBCs were performed on two of the trauma tx recipients who had long-term chimerism of donor cells post-tx. In 6 of 8 female surgery pts, circulating CD4(+) male donor cells peaked at day 3 or 5 (0.01 to 1 cell/microL), followed by clearance by day 14. In 7 of 10 female trauma pts, we observed multilineage persistence of male donor WBCs (CD4, CD8, CD15, CD19) for 6 months to 1.5 years post-tx at concentrations of 10 to 100 cells/microL. In 2 trauma recipients studied, MLR showed no, or very low, response to WBC of the single donor implicated as the source of microchimerism by HLA typing. Establishment of long-term multilineage chimerism in trauma recipients is probably caused by engraftment of donor stem cells and mutual tolerance between recipient and donor leukocytes. A better understanding of factors determining clearance versus chimerism of transfused leukocytes is critical to prevention of alloimmunization and transfusion-induced graft-versus-host disease, and, potentially, to induction of tolerance for transplantation.  (+info)

This may be of interest to members:. Undiagnosed anaemia is common in the surgical setting and is associated with increased perioperative morbidity and mortality. If it is uncorrected, it increases the likelihood of blood transfusion, which is independently associated with increased morbidity, mortality and hospital length of stay.. Of the 63 health services responding to the 2020 preoperative anaemia assessment and management in elective surgical procedures survey, 35 (56 per cent) reported a formalised process for optimising patient haemoglobin prior to elective surgery, with a further 16 planning to introduce a program in the next 12 months.. While there are more pathways present in 2020 compared with 2015, there is still room for improvement in both the development and the quality of anaemia assessment and management pathways.. Blood Matters recommends that health services review the report and associated recommendations through the blood management committee (or equivalent body), and use ...
b,Objective,/b,: To compare the cost and cost-effectiveness of a policy of pre-operative optimisation of oxygen delivery (using either adrenaline or dopexamine) to reduce the risk associated with major elective surgery, in high-risk patients. ,b,Methods,/b,: A cost-effectiveness analysis using data from a randomised controlled trial (RCT). In the RCT 138 patients undergoing major elective surgery were allocated to receive pre-operative optimisation employing either adrenaline or dopexamine (assigned randomly), or to receive routine peri-operative care. Differential health service costs were based on trial data on the number and cause of hospital in-patient days and the utilisation of health care resources. These were costed using unit costs from a UK hospital. The cost-effectiveness analysis related differential costs to differential life-years during a 2 year trial follow-up. ,b,Results,/b,: The mean number of in-patient days was 16 in the pre-optimised groups (19 adrenaline; 13 dopexamine) and ...

The basis for the substantial interhospital variation in preoperative medical consultation remains unclear. Differences in individual surgeons preferences may explain it in some part. However, we did not evaluate the impact of individual surgeons on consultation rates in the current study because of the analytical difficulties of comparing multiple surgeons nested within many different surgical specialties and hospitals. Thus, future studies should evaluate the influence of surgeons on consultation rates within a more homogenous group of surgical procedures (e.g. , major joint replacement). Nonetheless, there is likely an important effect of the individual hospital on consultation rates, as evidenced by the moderate positive correlation between hospital-specific consultation rates for dissimilar surgeries, namely major joint replacement versus colon resection procedures. It is unlikely that hospital-specific financial incentives to physicians were a major influence on hospital-level variation ...
The Centre Hospitalier in Calais said it can see patients within four weeks and can handle a range of elective surgical procedures.. The offer is part of a 2016 partnership deal with NHS chiefs from South Kent Coast Clinical Commissioning Group, which allows patients to book treatment in selected French hospitals in the same way they would choose a UK hospital.. NHS hospital trusts were told to cancel all non-urgent care, including around 55,000 elective operations, until at least February to ensure capacity is available at A&E departments and for seeing patients whose conditions may deteriorate - such as those suffering from cancer.. A flyer from Caliais centre, sent out this week, said: At a time when planned surgeries are cancelled in all NHS hospitals, Calais Hospital is in capacity to offer fast care to any NHS patient.. It adds that, because of the deal, the NHS can offer UK patients care in less than four weeks with no extended delay to be expected during winter time.. It comes after ...

Family physicians are often asked for preoperative consultations prior to elective surgical procedures. Traditionally, the process of clearing patients for surgery has included performing an electrocardiogram, chest x-ray, and numerous laboratory tests. However, as Dr. Molly Feely and colleagues point out in the cover article of American Family Physicians March 15th issue, there is little evidence that routine preoperative testing is beneficial: these tests often do not change perioperative management, may lead to follow-up testing with results that are often normal, and can unnecessarily delay surgery, all of which increase the cost of care. Instead, current guidelines recommend selective testing based on risk factors identified during the history or physical examination ...

Ensure proper control of diabetes and insulin requirements. Check blood gas analysis and blood lactate level because of the potential association with chronic lactic acidosis. Mental retardation may cause the patient to be uncooperative at induction of anesthesia and the benefit of a premedication must be weighed against the severity of the clinical condition. It is essential to ensure proper perioperative control of diabetes mellitus. Chronic lactic acidosis may be present and should be treated accordingly before any elective surgical procedures. ...
The number of laparoscopic/percutaneous surgical procedures performed in the United States (U.S.) has been gradually expanding over the years, reflecting the steady migration of patients from acute care settings and open surgery. By the end of 2010, outpatient procedures accounted for more than 50% of all surgeries performed in the U.S., compared with an estimated 30% in 2000. This trend is expected to continue over the forecast period covered by this report, though at a somewhat slower pace than in previous years. Over the past half-decade, economic uncertainty in the U.S. has prompted a visible decline in the number of elective surgical procedures, particularly those not covered by Medicare or private insurers. This trend, however, is expected to dissipate over the forthcoming years as the economic recovery becomes a sustainable reality. Among the surgical procedures performed in the U.S. that are projected to experience moderate to robust gains over the forecast period are carotid artery ...
The focus on DAPT has grown in parallel with concerns regarding ST. A consensus science advisory regarding DAPT for DES-treated patients (48) recommended: 1) DAPT for at least 1 year; 2) deferring elective surgical procedures for 1 year; 3) continuing 81 mg aspirin daily if thienopyridine therapy must be stopped; 4) discussing need for DAPT with the patient before the procedure; 5) educating patients and health care providers regarding DAPT compliance; and 6) consulting with the cardiologist prior to surgical procedures. Lacking adequately powered RCTs with ST as a primary end point, strategic approaches to extended DAPT have developed from observational studies.. In a prospective observational cohort of 6,816 successful DES patients, the incidence, timing, and relationship of ST to duration of clopidogrel therapy were analyzed during 4-year follow-up (49). Definite ST was observed in 1.2% of patients, with the greatest risk early after index PCI. The protective effect of clopidogrel was ...
This is an important update, as most infants undergoing anesthesia and surgery have exposures to anesthetics that are comparable in length to those of infants in the GAS, PANDA, and MASK studies. 11 Thus, as parents and physicians, we can assume that the findings of these studies are relevant to a wide range of infants having general anesthesia for short elective surgical procedures.. ...
Background After the emergence of Covid-19 in China, Hubei Province, the epidemic quickly spread to Europe. France was quickly hit and the Croix-Rousse hospital at the Hospices Civils de Lyon was one of the first French university hospital to receive patients infected with Sars-COV2. The predicted massive influx of patients motivated the cancellation of all elective surgical procedures planned to free hospitalization beds and to free intensive care beds. Nevertheless, patients who had to be canceled had to be properly selected to avoid a life threatening. The retained surgical indications were surgical emergencies, oncologic surgery and organ transplantation. The objective was to describe the organization of the Croix-Rousse hospital to allow the continuation of these surgical activities while limiting the exposure of patients to the Sars Cov2. ...
The most common pathogen involved in small animal surgical site infections today is Staphylococcus pseudintermedius. The overall carrier rate of this methicillin-resistant pathogen is approximately 4.4%, with a 14 times higher infection rate in part due to its ability to develop a biofilm. This pathogen and others are found in the normal commensal organisms of the canine skin appendages. Typical skin infection rates for most elective surgical procedures run approximately 3 - 5%, though are much higher in TPLO surgeries, reported up to 21 - 28%, becoming a more difficult problem to combat.. ...

Background The auditory evoked potential (AEP) monitor provides an electroencephalogram-derived index (AAI) that has been reported to correlate with the central nervous system depressant effects of anesthetic drugs. This clinical utility study was designed to test the hypothesis that AAI-guided administration of the maintenance anesthetics and analgesics would improve their titration and thereby provide a faster recovery from general anesthesia. Methods Seventy consenting patients undergoing elective general surgery procedures were randomly assigned to either a control (standard clinical practice) or AEP-monitored group. Although the AEP monitor was connected to all patients, the information from the monitor was only made available to the anesthesiologists assigned to patients in the AEP-monitored group. In the AEP-monitored group, the inspired desflurane concentration was titrated to maintain an AAI value of 15-20. In the control group, the inspired desflurane concentration was varied based on ...
This book describes the approach to anesthetic and perioperative management in different categories of high-risk patient scheduled to undergo elective noncardiac surgery. Individual sections focus on patients with conditions entailing cardiac and hemodynamic risks, respiratory risks, renal and metabolic risks, neurological risks, and other forms of risk. For each condition, up-to-date guidance is provided on risk evaluation, risk stratification, and intraoperative and postoperative anesthetic management. This is the first time that such different clinical situations have been gathered together in a single textbook of anesthesiology. All of the authors are international experts with extensive clinical experience. The aim is to provide trainee anesthesiologists with clear guidance that will prove invaluable when managing a wide range of patients with serious illnesses or conditions that pose a significant anesthetic risk. The book will also serve as a valuable reference for more experienced ...

180 days after DES implantation. Thus, these findings may help inform clinical decision making regarding the timing of major elective noncardiac surgery after recent PCI. However, the decision of timing for elective surgery should be individualized, balancing the well-understood risks of restenosis with less certain risks of stent thrombosis, as well as patient anatomy, perioperative bleeding risks, and risks of delaying surgical procedures. Although surgery >180 days after DES may be reasonable in some non-ACS simple lesions with good acute results, data from the current study do not have sufficient size and scope to change current guidelines and recommend earlier surgery after DES, when there remain concerns regarding the residual risk of stent thrombosis within the first year.. ...
Since at least 2005, there has been international recognition of a newly defined field of general surgery often referred to as Acute Care Surgery (ACS). The ACS model attempts to recognize that emergency general surgery (EGS) is a unique entity that differs significantly from elective general surgery. Indeed, EGS itself is an independent risk factor for morbidity and mortality, with EGS patients up to 5 times more likely to die than their elective surgery counterparts, a risk not fully explained by pre- or peri-operative risk factors. Many have postulated that patients presenting with EGS conditions benefit from structured care and systems, which has, in part, led to the development and proliferation of ACS models. Similar to the development of trauma systems throughout the world, ACS models focus on the acute care of surgical patients within the framework of a system dedicated to emergency care. In 2009, the Canadian Association of General Surgeons (CAGS) held a full-day summit to define the ...
Our findings suggest that elective noncardiac surgery can be performed reasonably safely in carefully selected patients once at least 6 months have elapsed since drug-eluting stent implantation. There may also be an optimal time window for performing surgery within the year after bare-metal stent implantation, namely from 46 to 180 days after PCI. Although the presence of this optimal window is not certain, especially because its associated adjusted odds ratio is imprecise, this window is biologically plausible. It represents the period when re-endothelialization is largely complete after bare-metal stent implantation30 but when in-stent restenosis has yet to completely manifest itself.31 Conversely, once ,1 year has elapsed since either bare-metal or drug-eluting stent implantation, physicians can be reassured that the associated perioperative cardiac risk has reached a plateau, with risks similar to that of individuals with remote histories of previous PCI (ie, 2 to 10 years before ...
The problem with this approach, however, is as the authors point out, that in hospitals that have a low volume of a given procedure, it is quite possible that, by the vagaries of chance alone, a hospital that may not be so great could have zero mortality. Unless an operation has a very high mortality in all hands, it is quite possible for a low volume hospital to have no mortalities for a considerable period of time for reasons that have little or nothing to do with the true rate of mortality. Most high mortality operations, however, have mortalities under 10%.. The study design was quite straightforward. The investigators obtained the Medicare records necessary to identify all hospitals with zero mortality for several procedures from 1997 to 1999. The procedures examined included coronary artery bypass grafting, elective abdominal aortic aneurysm repair, carotid endarterectomy, colon cancer resection, pulmonary lobectomy, and pancreatic resection. The hospitals had to have preformed at least ...
The last decade has represented a time of fundamental change in the treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs). Potentially, vascular surgeons will either acquire catheter-based skills or relinquish the care for many patients with infrarenal AAA. We investigated AAA referral patterns and method of AAA repair after the establishment of an endovascular AAA program at our institution. We conducted a retrospective review of elective AAA repairs after the initiation of an endovascular AAA program in April 1994. Six vascular surgeons performed all procedures with a clear distinction between the surgeons (n=3) who performed traditional AAA repair only and those (n=3) who managed AAAs by means of either endovascular or traditional treatment. From April 1994 through December 2000, 740 elective AAA repairs were performed. During this time the mean number of AAA repairs has been 106/year ranging from 75 to 155/year. More notable however is the steady increase in the percentage of endovascular AAA ...
A significant number of paediatric surgical patients undergone clean surgical procedures. Most of the paediatric surgeon use perioperative prophylactic antibiotic in this clean procedure because of undue fear of infection in their mind. The objective of this study is to evaluate whether the use of perioperative prophylactic antibiotics have an effect to prevent post operative wound infection in clean operation in paediatric surgical patients. This study was conducted in the paediatric surgery department of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University and some private clinics of Dhaka city from January 2009 to December 2009. Two hundred patients who were undergone clean elective surgical procedure on day case basis were included in this study. They were divided into two equal groups (Group A and Group B). The patients of Group A were given intransverse Cephradine 30 minutes before incision and then oral Cephradine was advised postoperatively for 7 days. The patients of Group B were not given any

Current projects include a drive to reduce complications, and the development of a risk-adjusting and predictive tool to guide preoperative assessment and patient selection. For example, the combination of an elevated creatinine, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, age greater than 70 and the need for suprarenal clamping, predicts a one year mortality of 70% in patients after elective open abdominal aortic aneurysm repair.This profile would dissuade most patients and surgeons from an open operation. Identifying and disseminating best practices and sharing of sophisticated data, including CT scans for collegial consultation, are current projects designed to improve the outcome for the entire cooperative group. Key lessons from this experience include the need for a physician leader at each site, the need for an overall project leader, the value of a regional rather than a national group to increase collegiality, communication and trust, and the need for a designated data manager at each site. ...
Physician work hours and fatigue can impact patient safety, particularly among subspecialties focused on high-risk patients. This retrospective cohort study examined outcomes of patients undergoing nonemergent cardiac surgery occurring before or after 3pm.
Preventing perioperative tissue oxygen debt contributes to a better postoperative recovery. Whether the beneficial effects of fluids and inotropes during optimization of the oxygen delivery index (DO2I) in high-risk patients submitted to major surgeries are due to fluids, to inotropes, or to the combination of the two is not known. We aimed to investigate the effect of DO2I optimization with fluids or with fluids and dobutamine on the 60-day hospital mortality and incidence of complications. A randomized and controlled trial was performed in 50 high-risk patients (elderly with coexistent pathologies) undergoing major elective surgery. Therapy consisted of pulmonary artery catheter-guided hemodynamic optimization during the operation and 24 hours postoperatively using either fluids alone (n = 25) or fluids and dobutamine (n = 25), aiming to achieve supranormal values (DO2I | 600 ml/minute/m2). The cardiovascular depression was an important component in the perioperative period in this group of patients.
Controversy: whether or not preoperative cardiac testing can ever be justified. It is clear that preoperative testing can stratify patients with regards to risk [Landesberg G et al. Circulation 108: 177, 2003], however in order for cardiac testing to be defensible, anticipated management changes (i.e. revascularization) must improve outcomes..

TRAIL - Joint-replacement surgeries at Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital (KBRH) are on hold after six patients were confirmed with infections postoperatively.. Surgical infections can result from a wide range of factors, Jane Cusden, Kootenay Boundary acute health services administrator, said Friday.. Factors can be specific to the patients themselves, or related to pre-surgical or post-operative care.. So we are looking for additional information that might indicate why we had this little blip in the places that we have, she explained.. With ski season and the likelihood of icy roads and sidewalks nearing, Cusden confirmed that emergency surgeries will not be affected - the focus is purely the elective total hip and knee joint replacement procedures.. No specific strain of bacteria has been isolated in all six patients.. The services review began Monday, affecting 37 patients previously scheduled for joint replacement surgery in December..

The cancellation of planned surgeries causes prolonged wait times, harm to patients, and is a waste of scarce resources. To reduce high cancellation rates in a Norwegian general hospital, the pathway for elective surgery was redesigned. The changes included earlier clinical assessment of patients, better planning and documentation systems, and increased involvement of patients in the scheduling of surgeries. This study evaluated the outcomes of this new pathway for elective surgery and explored which factors affected the outcomes. We collected the number of planned operations, performed operations, and cancellations per month from the hospitals patient administrative system. We then used Students t-test to analyze differences in cancellation rates (CRs) before and after interventions and a u-chart to analyze whether the improvements were sustained. We also conducted semi-structured interviews with employees of the hospital to explore the changes in the surgical pathway and the factors that facilitated

In-hospital mortality was 1% for elective, 2.1% for urgent and 4.5% for emergent admissions. The most substantial increase for in-hospital mortality was observed in patients who underwent elective procedures (0.8% in 2000 vs 3.4% in 2012). Additionally, patients treated in 2012 compared with 2000 were more likely to die in the hospital (OR 1.42; 95% CI 1.36-1.48).. Median patient age (75 years) did not change over the course of the study, but the proportion of those who were female dropped from 43.5% in 2000 to 40.4% in 2012. Bare-metal stent usage fell from 85.7% in 2000 to 23.5% in 2012 with a corresponding increase in the use of drug-eluting stents, which peaked in 2005 at 84.1% and settled at 70.3% in 2012. About one in 10 patients underwent angioplasty, and 90.4% underwent PCI with stent placement.. Overall survival was 93% at 6 months, 90% at 1 year, 80% at 3 years and 69% at 5 years. The 5-year survival rate held steady at 70% from 2000 through 2006 and then declined slightly to 66% ...

But, she points out, there are a couple of things patients may be able to do, especially if theyre in an elective situation. Number one is to call ahead to your doctor or hospital and find out if the drug that youre supposed to get, or the sequence of drugs, is in fact available. Secondly, you always want to ask your doctor if there are options or alternatives. Sometimes there are, sometimes there are not. And lastly, if youre going in for an elective treatment and there is a supply problem, ask if you have some latitude about whether that treatment can be rescheduled. Again, in some emergency settings, ICU settings, there are no options, but if youre talking about an elective therapy, oftentimes that treatment can be rescheduled.
