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 ...
Diabetics undergoing surgery suffer an increased risk of peri-operative complications. Higher rate of infection, delayed wound healing, ischemic complications, autonomic neuropathy, difficulties in controlling glycemic levels and longer hospital stay burden the outcome of surgery. Yet a detailed study to look for the incidence of complications, its relation to glycemic levels and type of surgery was lacking especially in an Indian setup. In this study we have tried to access the effect of hyperglycaemia on post-operative complications of laparotomies in diabetic patients. A comparison with non-diabetic patients regarding the complications was drawn. Aims: To study the effect of hyperglycaemia on post-operative complications of laparotomies in diabetic patients, and correlate it with glycemic control. Methods and Material: All patients undergoing laparotomies were studied. A detailed history and laboratory data were obtained at presentation. Patients were followed through their hospital stay for ...
Hypothesis: Statins attenuate perioperative inflammatory and oxidative mechanisms that contribute to the initiation and severity of cardiopulmonary complications after thoracic surgery.. Aim 1. To determine whether prophylactic administration of atorvastatin attenuates the inflammatory and oxidative response to surgery and significantly reduces the composite risk of cardiovascular morbidity (atrial fibrillation (AF), acute coronary syndrome, myocardial infarction (MI), cerebrovascular accident (CVA), pulmonary embolism) and mortality within 30 days after thoracic surgery.. Aim 2. To explore whether prophylactic administration of atorvastatin attenuates the inflammatory and oxidative (CRP, IL-6, TNF, and MPO) response to surgery and significantly reduces the overall risk of pulmonary complications (atelectasis, pneumonia, pneumonitis, acute respiratory failure) after thoracic surgery.. Aim 3. To explore the association of single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) changes in genes linked to atrial ...

Adult patients with CD and UC who underwent a nonintestinal surgical procedure during treatment with VDZ were included. Patients who had their last ...
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 ...

Effect of diabetes mellitus on postoperative outcomes in patients undergoing emergency general surgery procedures., Abdulmalik Altaf
Results. The observed postoperative mortality rate was 2.4% (95% CI: 1.5-3.3%), which was much lower than the rate predicted by both POSSUM (6.2%) and P-POSSUM (5.3%) analyses, and 36% of patients experienced complications, a percentage slightly higher than that predicted by POSSUM (30.2%). The first 48 hours following surgery were characterized by the highest mortality rate (2.85 deaths per thousand vs 0.7 per thousand by the third postoperative day) as well as the highest morbidity rate (7.7% vs 4.3% between the third and seventh postoperative days, and 0.9% between the eighth and thirtieth postoperative days). The presumed causes of early death were primarily secondary to cardiovascular complications (five out of six ...
Spencer Liu is well known for his work on postoperative analgesia.

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 ...

Table 3 Cost to treat postoperative complications.. The healer performed DIH (specifically called Samadhi Healing Technique or SHT) twice per day at 5 a.m. and midnight daily for the 4 week period for patients immediately after their surgeries. The healer visualized patients and with intention, projected the thought of no complications to group DIH-SHT patients even though the healer did not know who they were. The DIH-SHT group patients were not told if and when they were receiving such intentional healing during the 4 week period post operative. At the end of 6 months postoperative, complications were documented from their medical records. If there were complications, the cost of care was also documented from their medical financial records and used for calculations in Table 3 for both groups.. Results. The results indicate significantly less postoperative complication rate with p. The 2 in the DIH-SHT group were nail spicules after partial matrixectomy. For Table 1, of the 9 operatory ...
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 ...
Smoking and Surgery: What Can Go Wrong. There are a number of complications, risks, and potential infections that can develop as a result of smoking pre- or post-surgery. What exactly can go wrong? Heres a run-down on the most common and serious complications that can arise as a result of smoking pre- or post-surgery ophtalmologues Courbevoie:. Wound Infection. One of the most common complications that can occur if you smoke is wound infection. Smoking, in effect, steals oxygen from cells that are in the process of healing. Smoking is a risk factor for wound infection in almost any kind of surgery. Researchers have found that smokers continue smoking before surgery are at a much higher risk of developing wounds that do not heal properly.. Cardiopulmonary complications. Tobacco smoke is very hard on the heart, lungs, and the entire immune system. If you are scheduled for any type of heart surgery, it is imperative that you quit smoking for at least six weeks before your ...
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 ...
A total of 300 patients were included, and 38.3% were male. The mean age was 63.7 years: 10.3% of patients were younger than 50 years, 36.0% were 50-64 years, 45.7% were 65-79 years, and 8.0% were 80 years or older. The overall mean EBL was 1999 ml. The overall perioperative complication rate was 24.7%: 18.0% had a medical complication and 7.0% had a surgical complication. There were no perioperative or 30-day deaths. Age was associated with overall complications (p = 0.002) and medical-specific complications (p , 0.001); there were higher rates of overall and medical complications with increased age: 9.7% and 6.5%, respectively, for patients younger than 50 years; 16.7% and 10.2%, respectively, for patients 50-64 years; 31.4% and 22.6%, respectively, for patients 65-79 years; and 41.7% and 41.7%, respectively, for patients 80 years or older. However, after adjusting for relevant covariates on multivariate analysis, age was not an independent factor for perioperative complications. Surgical ...

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 ...

PURPOSE: To analyze agreement on postoperative complications after hypospadias surgery according to medical records and parents reports. MATERIALS & METHODS: In this retrospective cohort study, data were collected from 409 children who received an initial one-stage hypospadias correction in the Radboudumc, The Netherlands. Postoperative complications according to medical records were compared with parent-reported complications in an online questionnaire. Main complications studied were wound-related complications, urinary tract infections, fistulas, stenosis, and prepuce-related complications. Agreement was determined by Cohens kappa coefficient. RESULTS: Slightly less complications were mentioned in medical records (37%) compared to parents reports (42%). Overall agreement was moderate (kappa=0.50, 95% confidence interval (CI):0.41-0.59), but poor for some specific complications. Agreement was higher for complications that needed reoperation compared to when no reoperation was performed ...
1 Common complications after PPH. 2 Comparison of short-term complications after PPH and traditional methods. Racalbuto et al. reported that the comparison of 50 cases of PPH and Milligan-Morgan (MMH) surgery showed that: PPH has less pain (average painkiller 2.60 vs 15.9 tablets) and faster return to normal activities (08 04 vs 16. 9 d). Mehigan et al. reported that 85% of patients with PPH treatment were satisfied with postoperative symptom control, while MMH hemorrhoidectomy accounted for 75%. Since the initiation of PPH surgery, in the comparative study of PPH and MMH surgery in 4 domestic cases with a large number of cases, the comparison of operation time, pain index injection analgesic frequency, hospitalization time, recovery time and postoperative complication rate have shown PPH is better than MMH group. Schmidt et al. reported that 80 cases of similar patients treated with PPH and traditional surgery were compared. The complication rate of PPH was 4%, while that of traditional surgery ...

The purpose of our study was to estimate the influence of estimated intraoperative blood loss (EIBL) on postoperative cardiopulmonary complications (PCCs) in patients undergoing video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) lobectomy for non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). We conducted a single-center retrospective analysis on the clinical data of consecutive patients in our institution between April 2015 and February 2016. Demographic differences between PCC group and non-PCC group were initially assessed. Receiver operating characteristic (ROC) analysis was performed to determine the threshold value of EIBL for the prediction of PCCs. Demographic differences in the PCC rates and length of stay between two groups of patients divided by this cutoff were further evaluated. A multivariable logistic-regression model involving the clinicopathological parameters with P-value| 0.05 was finally established to identify independent risk factors for PCCs. A total of 429 patients with operable NSCLC were included
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: Open revascularization for acute mesenteric ischemia (AMI) is associated with high perioperative morbidity and mortality; however, results from contemporary studies are varied. Therefore, we evaluated 30-day mortality after open revascularization for AMI and identified preoperative factors associated with mortality. Methods: We performed a retrospective cohort study of patients in the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database undergoing open mesenteric revascularization for AMI from 2005 to 2017. The primary outcome was 30-day mortality. We used multivariable logistic regression to identify preoperative factors independently associated with 30-day mortality. Results: The study cohort included 918 patients; their median age was 70 years (interquartile range: 59e80 years), 62% were female, and 90% were white. Thirty-day mortality after open revascularization for AMI was 32%, specifically 35% after embolectomy, 31% after thromboendarterectomy, ...
Postoperative cognitive dysfunction (POCD) is a common postoperative complication experienced by patients aged 65 years and older, and these older adults comprise more than one third of the surgical patients in the USA. Because not everyone with a history of exposure to surgery and anesthesia develops POCD, there are likely major biological risk factors involved. There are important gaps in our knowledge regarding whether genetic makeup, biological sex, or other Alzheimers disease risk factors predispose older adults to developing POCD. We set out to determine whether biological sex and Apolipoprotein E-ε4 (APOE4) carrier status increase the risk of developing POCD in older adults. We performed a cohort analysis of 1033 participants of prospective longitudinal aging studies. Participants underwent regular cognitive test batteries and we compared the annual rate of change over time in various cognitive measures in the women exposed to surgery and general anesthesia compared to the men exposed to
Background The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 provides the framework to link reimbursement for providers based on outcome metrics. Concerns exist that the lack of risk adjustment for patients undergoing revision TKA for an infection may cause problems with access to care.. Questions/purposes (1) After controlling for confounding variables, do patients undergoing revision TKA for infection have higher 30-day readmission, reoperation, and mortality rates than those undergoing revision TKA for aseptic causes? (2) Compared with patients undergoing revision TKA who are believed not to have infections, are patients undergoing revision for infected TKAs at increased risk for complications?. Methods We queried the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database for patients undergoing revision TKA from 2012 to 2015 identified by Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes 27486, 27487, and 27488. Of the 10,848 patients identified, four were ...
Utilizing American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Project (ACS NSQIP) data, the authors looked at the effects of intraoperative handoffs involving anesthesia personnel in two hospitals.
Nine nonrandomised cohort studies met the inclusion criteria and involved a total of 1589 women with 2199 breast reconstructions. We included seven retrospective and two prospective cohort studies. Six studies reported the number of MSFN on a per breast basis for a total of 1435 breasts and three studies reported the number of MSFN on a per patient basis for a total of 573 women. Five studies reported the number of other complications on a per breast basis for a total of 1370 breasts and four studies reported the number on a per patient basis for a total of 613 patients. Therefore, we decided to pool data separately.. Risk of bias for each included nonrandomised study was assessed using the Newcastle-Ottawa Scale for cohort studies. There was serious concern with risk of bias due to the nonrandomised study design of all included studies and the low comparability of cohorts in most studies. The quality of the evidence was found to be very low, after downgrading the quality of evidence twice for ...

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 results of our study show higher overall complication rates for minimally invasive sacroiliac joint fusion than have been previously reported, write the authors. Whilst the team note ...

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 ...

The surgical treatment of advanced ovarian cancer is based on the maximal debulking with widening the operation range to the infiltrated organs. The aims are as follows: (1) the assessment of the quantity and quality of intra- and postoperative complications in patients with advanced ovarian cancer in which partial bowel resection was performed and (2) the evaluation of intra- and postoperative complications related to surgery with bowel resection and anastomosis, compared to Hartmanns procedure. The analysis of debulking procedures with intestinal resection and postoperative period in 39 ovarian cancer patients, FIGO stage III-IV, was performed. During 39 operations, the most frequent type of resection was the sigmoidectomy or proctosigmoidectomy (29 patients). In the remaining patients, left- and right-side hemicolectomy or partial enterectomy was done. Twenty-four anastomosis and 15 Hartmanns procedures were performed. There were no differences between surgery with anastomosis and ...
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the second most prevalent type of cancer in the world. Surgery is the only curative option. However, postoperative complications occur in up to 50% of patients and are associated with higher morbidity and mortality rates, lower health related quality of life (HRQoL) and increased expenditure in health care. The number and severity of complications are closely related to preoperative functional capacity, nutritional state, psychological state, and smoking behavior. Traditional approaches have targeted the postoperative period for rehabilitation and lifestyle changes. However, recent evidence shows that the preoperative period might be the optimal moment for intervention. This study will determine the impact of multimodal prehabilitation on patients functional capacity and postoperative complications. This international multicenter, prospective, randomized controlled trial will include 714 patients undergoing colorectal surgery for cancer. Patients will be allocated to the
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 ...

A total of 198 whole-genome expression profiles of liver, skeletal muscle and ...
The most common complications that occur during treatments with dental implants are mechanical. Purpose of this presentation was to show the incidence and types of technical complications associated with implant supported complete dental fixed prostheses. Prosthetic conditions were determined by clinical analysis and radiographic examination. Design characteristics of the implant, abutment and prostheses, the materials employed and biomechanical issues all exert an important influence on the outcome of these prostheses. First technical and immediately after biologic complications after the placement of implant supported fixed complete dental prosthesis for our edentulous patients, occur continuously over time as a result of fatigue and stress. The most frequent implant - prosthesis complication reported was screw fractures, or hypertrophy - hyperplasia of tissue. The combination of implant-bone anchoring, the attachment of prosthetic components with screws, and the dynamics involved result in a ...
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 ...
Results of the surgical management of abdominal aortic aneurysms in 80 patients over 80 years of age. Background: Abdominal aortic aneurysms AAA may be lethal unless appropriately and timely treated.. Since age is a surgical risk, octogenarians are usually not considered as candidates for surgical intervention. Aim: To asses surgical complications and mortality in octogenarians treated for AAA.. Subjects and Methods: Patients aged 80 years older, treated consecutively between were retrospectively analyzed. Results: Sixty one patients were male, and their age ranged from 80 to 95 years. All were treated with open surgery. The operation was elective in 58 and as an emergency in 22 patients symptomatic or ruptured AAA. Aortic diameter was 6. Thirty days postoperative mortality was 5.. Five years survival rate was Conclusions: Elective surgery for asymptomatic AAA can be performed with low operative mortality in octogenarians. However, surgery in emergency cases has an 8 fold increase in risk. ...
The OPOS study is novel in its design for classifying CVD patients by BMI, QoL measures and functional capacity, and correlating these factors with molecular biomarkers of obesity at the systemic and cellular levels. Previous studies have been unable to completely elucidate the mechanisms by which obesity affects postoperative outcomes. The proposed findings of this study should overcome, to a great extent, the limitations of BMI as a singular measure of obesity, the most salient of which is its inability to account for muscle mass or functional capacity. While alternate techniques can directly measure body composition, such as MRI or dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry,39 these are impractical in the clinical setting. Despite its limitations, BMI is most familiar to clinicians and thus must serve as a comparative marker in this study design. Studies like this one are necessary to help segregate the high-risk obese patient likely to experience adverse outcomes from the lower risk obese patient. ...

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 ...
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 ...
Both AUDIT-C alcohol screening scores up to a year before surgery and clinical documentation of drinking over 2 drinks per day immediately prior to surgery (documented drinking ,2d/d) are associated with increased postoperative complications and health care utilization. The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether documented drinking ,2d/d contributed additional information about postoperative risk beyond past-year AUDIT-C screening results ...

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 ...

Higher rates of stillbirths, the need for emergency Caesarean sections, and infant mortality have all been associated with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes
Complication, in medicine, is an unfavorable evolution or consequence of a disease, a health condition or a therapy. The disease can become worse in its severity or show a higher number of signs, symptoms or new pathological changes, become widespread throughout the body or affect other organ systems. A new disease may also appear as a complication to a previous existing disease. A medical treatment, such as drugs or surgery may produce adverse effects or produce new health problem(s) by itself. Therefore, a complication may be iatrogenic (i.e. literally brought forth by the physician).. Medical knowledge about a disease, procedure or treatment usually entails a list of the most common complications, so that they can be foreseen, prevented or recognized more easily and speedily.. Depending on the degree of vulnerability, susceptibility, age, health status, immune system condition, etc. complications may arise more easily. Complications affect adversely the prognosis of a disease. Non-invasive ...
