nausea and vomiting is evaluated in three phases.
In this study various factors responsible for determining the outcome of the patient following abdominal surgeries were studied and a total of 82 patients suffered from postoperative
pulmonary complications in the time duration of one and a half years.
When comparing the mean preoperative and postoperative
PTA in both groups and no statistically significant differences were found.
Secondary endpoints were symptomatic UTI, defined as fever, pain, or other clinical symptoms consistent with UTI along with a urine culture of >50,000 CFU, and postoperative
The provision of effective postoperative
analgesia is a key to facilitate early mobilization of the mother, infant care, and prevention of postoperative
Exclusion criteria were as follows: (1) previous history of abdominal surgery; (2) unavailable inflammatory markers on postoperative
days (POD) 1, 3, and 5; and (3) preoperative systematic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS), manifested by two or more of the following conditions:
In our study, the only significant variables contributing to an increased LOS after multivariate analysis were the type of surgery, postoperative
SCU stay and the need for postoperative
All patients received IV morphine using a PCA pump for postoperative
When the two groups were compared, no statistical difference was found regarding postoperative
kidney or other system functions (p> 0.05) (Table-III).
No significant difference was also observed in mean arterial pressure values during the intraoperative and postoperative
early period (P>0.05) (Figure 1).
Table-I: Peroperative and postoperative
characteristics of patients (n=39).
There were 352 elective laparoscopic cholecystectomies performed during the year, while data on 15 patients were insufficient for analysis of postoperative
recovery; thus, 337 patients were ultimately included in the study.
15, 2018 (HealthDay News) -- For patients undergoing cervical or lumbar spinal fusions, postoperative
pain management with opioids is associated with higher postoperative
pain scores and worse quality of life, according to a review presented at the annual meeting of the American Society of Anesthesiologists, held from Oct.
To the Editor: In a retrospective study by Zheng et al . assessing the influences of perioperative single-donor platelet apheresis and red blood cell transfusion on 90-day and overall survival in 126 recipients who underwent their first adult-to-adult living donor liver transplantation (LDLT), multivariate regression analysis showed that platelet transfusion was only associated with postoperative
early-term mortality, but had no significant impact on postoperative
overall long-term mortality.
follow-up is usually simple allowing ambulatory practices [1, 2].
