RESUMO

Postoperative fever in pediatric patients following reconstructive hip surgery is of unknown significance. This study identifies the prevalence of postoperative fever after corrective hip surgery, its relationship to infection, and whether preventative use of anti-pyretics affects patient outcomes.Overall, 222 patients who underwent a varus derotational osteotomy (VDRO) between 11/1/2004 to 8/1/2014 with minimum 6 months follow up were retrospectively identified. Variables included diagnosis, inpatient stay, daily maximum temperature, duration of fever, fever workup, and administration of scheduled anti-pyretics. Fever was defined as temperature ≥38°C.In total, 123/222 (55.4%) and 70/222 (31.5%) had postoperative fevers of ≥38°C and ≥38.5°C, respectively. Average inpatient stay was 2.7 days postoperatively. Temperature (mean = 38.0°C) was greatest on postoperative day 1 (POD1), and 43.7% of patients had T ≥38°C on POD1. Anti-pyretics did not influence the duration of fever. Anti-pyretics on the day of surgery (POD0) did not influence the incidence of fever. Acetaminophen on POD0 significantly reduced likelihood of fever on POD1 (P = .02). Average length of fevers ≥38°C and 38.5°C were 8.4 and 4.2 hours, respectively. 3/18 (16.7%) fever workups administered were positive. Postoperative fever did not predict infection. 9/222 (4/1%) patients had postoperative infection - 5/123 (4.1%) with fever ≥38°C and 4/70 (5.7%) with fever ≥38.5°C. Rates of infection in patients with and without fevers were not significantly different (P = .97 for T ≥38°C and P = .38, for T ≥38.5°C).Though common, postoperative fever does not increase risk of infection. The low prevalence of positive cultures indicates routine fever workups can safely be avoided in most patients.Level of Evidence: III, retrospective comparative study.

RESUMO

INTRODUCTION: Transpalatal advancement (TPA) is a procedure that is used when modern variants of uvulopharyn-gopalatoplasty are unable to provide enough anterior traction. Although successful in reduction of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) parameters, it also comes with procedure-specific risks. Formation of an oro-nasal fistula (ONF) is a complication that results in significant morbidity and a protracted treatment course. METHODS: After approval from the University of Wollongong Health Research Ethics Committee, a retrospective chart review of all cases undergoing TPA performed by a single surgeon over a 10-year period from 2008 to 2018 was performed. Patients underwent pre- and postoperative level 1 or 2 polysomnography. Factors potentially contributing to palatal complications, as well as pre- and postoperative polysomnographic parameters, subjective sleep questionnaires, and body mass index (BMI) were statistically analyzed where a P value <.05 was considered a significant result. RESULTS: A total of 59 patients were included. Overall palatal complication rate was 25.4% (15/59), with the most common being transient velo-palatal insufficiency (VPI) (8/59, 13.6%). ONF developed in 4/59 (6.8%) of patients. None of the analyzed contributing factors for palatal complications were statistically significant, except the presence of a high-arched palate and development of ONF. All analyzed sleep parameters, as well as BMI, were significantly different when comparing pre- to postoperative results. CONCLUSION: This study suggests that TPA has a role in current sleep surgery paradigms and can significantly improve both objective and subjective outcome measures of OSA. Surgeons contemplating TPA on patients with high-arched hard palates should do so with caution.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVE: Prediction and early intervention for hypocalcemia following parathyroidectomy and total thyroidectomy can decrease hospital cost and prevent severe hypocalcemia-related complications. This study aims to predict the severity of hypocalcemia after parathyroidectomy or thyroidectomy and to stratify patients into groups with different levels of risk for developing severe hypocalcemia, so that higher risk patients may be monitored more closely and receive earlier interventions. METHODS: This was a retrospective cohort study of 100 patients with primary hyperparathyroidism who underwent parathyroidectomy as the primary treatment modality at a tertiary care hospital. Clinical information, including demographic information, perioperative PTH and calcium levels, vitamin D levels, weight of the pathologic glands removed, gland pathology, and re-admission rates, were retrieved. Statistical analysis was performed to analyze the association between collected variables and percentage of calcium drop following parathyroidectomy with statistical significant set at P-values <0.05. RESULTS: Age, sex, and vitamin D level provided very minimal information to quantify risks of postoperative hypocalcemia. The percentage of decrease from preoperative PTH level to the lowest PTH level after the removal of the abnormal gland(s) is the most significant predicting factor for the severity of postoperative hypocalcemia. There is a mathematic regressional correlation between them. A formula was generated to quantify this linear relationship between them, and the nadir calcium can be calculated as Canadir=Capreop*[1-0.35*(PTHpreop-PTHintraop)2PTHpreop2], where Canadir = the lowest postoperative calcium level, and PTHintraop = PTH level 15 minutes after removal of the abnormal gland, with the value of R2 > 0.7. The formula has been tested primarily in our patient population with good reliability. CONCLUSIONS: The highest preoperative, lowest postoperative, and change in PTH level can help us reliably calculate the trend of postoperative calcium level. Decision to pursue early interventions can be made based on the calculated result from the formula we obtained.

RESUMO

PURPOSE: In utero myelomeningocele closure is a valid alternative to postnatal repair with unclear benefits to bladder function. We compared bladder status in patients who underwent fetal myelomeningocele surgery versus postnatal repair. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed our database, with group 1 consisting of in utero surgery and group 2 consisting of postnatal repair. Group 3 was a subgroup of group 2, including patients initially presenting at age less than 12 months. We recorded medical history, radiological investigation with renal ultrasonography, voiding cystourethrography, urodynamic evaluation and clinical outcome of the bladder pattern after treatment. RESULTS: We identified 88 patients in group 1, 86 in group 2 and 38 in group 3. The incidence of urinary tract infection was higher in the postnatal period (45% vs 20%). Hydronephrosis occurred in 20.7%, 22.6% and 28.9% of patients in groups 1, 2 and 3, respectively. Vesicoureteral reflux was diagnosed in 15% in all groups. Urodynamic data showed a higher prevalence of detrusor overactivity in group 1 and no difference in other urodynamic parameters. The high risk bladder pattern at initial evaluation occurred in 56%, 50% and 46% of patients in groups 1, 2 and 3, respectively. There was a trend to decrease the percentages of the high risk bladder pattern and to increase the normal pattern after treatment in all groups. CONCLUSIONS: In utero repair did not improve urological parameters compared to repair in the postnatal period.

RESUMO

To generate a nomogram to predict posthepatectomy liver failure (PHLF), we attempted to elucidate salient risk factors in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC).We performed a retrospective review of 665 patients with HCC who received hepatectomy in 2 academic institutions in China. Independent risk factors for PHLF were identified from putative demographic, intrinsic, biochemical, surgery-related, and volumetric data. A predictive nomogram was formulated based on relevant risk factors, and we compared this with existing models.We identified clinical signs of portal hypertension (P = .023), serum total bilirubin (P = .001), serum creatinine (P = .039), and intraoperative hemorrhage (P = .015) as being important risk factors in predicting PHLF. The nomogram had a C-index of 0.906 for the externally validated data. The nomogram displayed better predictive value than 2 of the other most cited models (C-indices of 0.641 and 0.616, respectively) in the current cohort. Additionally, we were able to patients into low- (<10%), intermediate- (10-30%), and high-risk (≥30%) groups based on the nomogram. This allows us to facilitate person-specific management.Here, we constructed a simple nomogram for prediction of PHLF in patients with HCC weighted by independent risk factors. Further prospective studies are required to confirm the predictive ability of our nomogram.

RESUMO

This study aimed to investigate the application of the healthcare failure mode and effect analysis (HFMEA) to reduce the incidence of posture syndrome of thyroid surgery (PSTS).Subjects before (n = 78, July 2017-December 2017) and after (n = 114, January 2018-June 2018) HFMEA implementation (The Second Hospital of Nanjing, Nanjing University of Chinese Medicine) were selected. The training for PSTS was optimized using HFMEA.The occurrence of PSTS was reduced from 59% to 18% after HFMEA (P < .001). Symptoms of pain and nausea and vomiting were also decreased after HFMEA (all P < .001). The critical thinking ability of 34 medical personnel to evaluate the reduction of thyroid postoperative posture syndrome increased from 246 ±â€Š19 to 301 ±â€Š14 (P < .001) after HFMEA.HFMEA was used to create preoperative posture training procedures for PSTS, bedside cards for training, innovative preoperative posture training equipment, and a diversified preoperative posture training health education model.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Evaluation of low rectal anastomosis is often recommended prior to ostomy closure, but the efficacy of such evaluations is uncertain. OBJECTIVES: To assess whether routine colonic preoperative evaluation has an effect on postoperative ileostomy closure results. METHODS: We performed a retrospective study evaluating all patients who underwent ileostomy closure over 9 years. Patient demographics, clinical, surgical details, and surgical outcomes were recorded and analyzed. RESULTS: The study comprised 116 patients who underwent ileostomy closure, of them 65 were male (56%) with a mean age of 61 years (range 20-91). Overall, 98 patients (84.4%) underwent colonic preoperative evaluation prior to ileostomy closure. A contrast enema was performed on 61 patients (62.2%). Abnormal preoperative results were observed in 12 patients (12.2%). The overall complication rate was 35.3% (41 patients). No differences in postoperative outcome was observed in patient gender (P = 1), age (P = 0.96), body mass index (P = 0.24), American Society of Anesthesiologists score (P = 0.21), and the Charlson Comorbidity Index score (P = 0.93). Among patients who had postoperative complications, we did not observe a difference between patients who underwent preoperative evaluation compared to those who did not (P = 0.42). No differences were observed among patients with preoperative findings interpreted as normal or abnormal (P = 1). The time difference between ileostomy creation and closure had no effect on the ileostomy closure outcome (P = 0.34). CONCLUSIONS: Abnormal findings in preoperative colonic evaluation prior to ileostomy closure were not associated with worse postoperative outcome.

RESUMO

Introduction: Postoperative complications are common; some are transient, others may be serious, but they are all important to patients. One of the most important gaps in surgical research is the lack of consensus over the preferred result, the type of measurement or of evaluation. Methods: We conducted a retrospective study of postoperative complications at the Surgery Department of the National Hospital Center of Nouakchott. Eight hundred thirty-four patients underwent surgery over a seven-month period (1 January 2017-31 July 2017). The demographic and clinical parameters were studied and analyzed statistically using SPSS software 20. Results: The study involved 834 patients, of whom 426 (51.1%) were men. The average age of patients was 34.81 years (1-90 years). Four hundred thirty-two (51.2%) patients underwent emergency surgery. The sex ratio (M/F) was 1.04. Arab-Berbers race accounted for 77.8%. Appendicular disease accounted for 41.12%, hepatobiliary disease accounted for 17.76%, and abdominal wall disease accounted for 16.1%). Thyroid disease accounted for 5.6%. One hundred eighty-three (21.94%) patients developed postoperative complications, including 4 (2.1%) deaths. Clavien-Dindo grade II was the most represented with 82.5% of complications and accounted for 17.91% of all operated patients. Surgical site infection accounted for 62.8% of all complications. Conclusion: This study shows that the Clavien-Dindo classification can be applied to patients who have undergone elective surgery and emergency surgery. We think that the lack of follow-up and the lack of means to fight the infection and the non-rigorous respect of asepsis and antisepsis procedures would play an important role.

RESUMO

Introduction: As the life expectancy and weight of patients are increasing, more old and obese patients are undergoing total knee arthroplasty (TKA). TKA may lead to several perioperative complications. These include anesthesia-related risks, exacerbation of comorbid medical issues and complications of surgical procedure. We have no studies reporting medical complications following TKA among our population. This study aimed to evaluate perioperative complications of TKA and to identify the related risk factors. Methods: It was a monocentric retrospective including 410 observations in the local TKA registry. Data of patients operated for primary unilateral TKA during the period from January 2014 to December 2017 were reviewed. All patients had standardized protocols of anesthesia and post operative care for three days following surgery. Multivariate logistic regression was used to identify the predicting factors for complications. Results: Incidence of perioperative complications was 37.1%. The most frequent were per operative hypotension (14.1%) and postoperative desaturation (21.7%, including pulmonary embolism in 2.4%). Multivariate logistic regression analysis identified: age ≥ 65 years (OR=1.9; p=0.006), respiratory diseases (OR=1.8; p=0.042) and general anesthesia (OR=2.8; p=0.009) as significant risk factors for any complications. Loss of autonomy (OR=4.8; p <0.001) and general anesthesia (OR=2.6; p=0.03) were significant risk factors for hypotension. Age ≥ 65 years (OR=2.6;p<0.001), female gender (OR=4.3;p=0.006) and respiratory diseases(OR=1.9;p=0.02) were associated with postoperative desaturation. Conclusion: This study highlighted hemodynamic and respiratory complications as the most common early complications in TKA. Age ≥ 65years, general anesthesia and respiratory diseases were significant risk factors.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Postoperative complications after gastric cancer resection vary in different series and they might have a significant impact in long-term outcomes. Our aim was to build a prediction rule on gastric cancer patients' overall and major morbidity risks. METHODS: This retrospective study included 1223 patients from a single center who were resected between 1992 and 2016. Overall and major morbidity predictors were identified through multiple logistic regression. Models' performances were assessed through discrimination, calibration, and cross-validation, and nomograms were constructed. RESULTS: The mean age was 61.3-year old and the male gender was more frequent (60%). The most common comorbidities were hypertension (HTN), diabetes, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). A D2-distal gastrectomy was the most frequent procedure and 87% of all lesions were located in the middle or distal third. Age, COPD, coronary heart disease, chronic liver disease, pancreatic resection, and operative time were independent predictors of overall and major morbidity. The extent of resection and splenectomy was associated with overall events and HTN with major ones. Both models were very effective in predicting events among patients at higher risk. CONCLUSIONS: The overall and major morbidity models and nomograms included clinical- and surgical-related data that were very effective in predicting events, especially for high-risk patients.

RESUMO

Trans-catheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) has become an alternative to surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) in high and intermediate risk patients with aortic stenosis. TAVR programs are spreading from large referral centers and being established in community based institutions. The purpose of this study was to compare the outcomes of TAVR to those of SAVR in a community hospital.A historical cohort study of patients with aortic stenosis and pre-post procedure echocardiography data who underwent SAVR or TAVR in Cape Cod Hospital between January 2014 and December 2016. Patient characteristics and procedure outcomes were compared between the two procedures.The study included 230 patients, of them 111 underwent SAVR and 119 underwent TAVR. None of the patients died during the 30 days after the procedure. TAVR patients had higher rates of postoperative mild+ aortic regurgitation (AR) (29.4% vs 12.6%, P = .002), postoperative atrial ventricular blocks (11.8% vs 0.9%, P = .001), and more often need an implantation of pacemaker (16.8% vs 0.9%, P < .001). Postoperative mean gradient of SAVR patients was higher (median 14 vs 11 mm Hg, P = .001) and atrial fibrillation postoperatively was more frequent (18.9% vs 2.5%, P < .001). Length of stay after procedure was shorter in TAVR patients (median 2 vs 4 days, P < .001).After controlling for confounders, the use of TAVR was associated with an increased risk for postoperative pacemaker implantation (OR = 16.3, 95%CI 1.91-138.7, P = .011), lower mean gradient (-4.327, 95%CI -7.68 to -0.98, P = .011), and lower risk for atrial fibrillation (OR = 0.11, 95%CI 0.03-0.38, P = .001), but not with postoperative AR (OR = 0.84, 95%CI 0.22-3.13, P = .789).In conclusion, short-term mortality was not reported in SAVR or TAVR patients. However, TAVR was associated with an increased risk for postoperative pacemaker implantation but with a lower risk for atrial fibrillation. Aortic valves implanted through a trans-catheter approach are also associated with a better hemodynamic performance.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND/AIM: The aim of this study was to determine the significance of immunonutritional and physical index in the assessment of risk associated with pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) in the elderly. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This study enrolled 92 patients who underwent PD. They were divided into 2 groups: Group A included patients 79 years and younger (n=79) and Group B patients 80 years and older (n=13). Among 37 patients, physical function and body composition were also evaluated. RESULTS: Significantly higher neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio, lower prognostic nutritional index (PNI), and controlling nutritional score were observed in Group B. Muscle strength and walking ability were significantly impaired in Group B, although there was no significant difference in body composition. Age was not correlated with the incidence of postoperative complications, overall survival or recurrence-free survival by univariate and multivariate analysis. CONCLUSION: PD is justified for the elderly, with acceptable morbidity and prognosis. However, immunonutritional status and physical function are significantly impaired; thus, appropriate case selection and active nutritional support are required for the elderly.

RESUMO

Treatment of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is often multidimensional, requiring both medical and surgical therapies at different times throughout the course of the disease. Both medical and surgical treatments may be used in the acute setting, during a flare, or in a more elective maintenance role. These treatments should be planned as complementary and synergistic. Gastroenterologists and colorectal surgeons should collaborate to create a cohesive treatment plan, arranging the sequence and timing of various treatments. This article reviews the anticipated postoperative recovery after surgical treatment of IBD, possible postoperative complications, and considerations of timing surgery with medical therapy.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Despite the popularity of the U.S. News and World Report (USNWR) hospital rankings among the general public, the relationship between hospital rankings and actual patient outcomes for major cancers remains poorly investigated. METHODS: Medicare Inpatient Standard Analytic Files were queried from 2013-2015 to assess the relationship of postoperative outcomes and Medicare expenditures among patients undergoing surgery for colorectal, lung, esophageal, pancreatic, and liver cancer at hospitals ranked in the top-50 USNWR vs hospitals ranked below 50. RESULTS: Among 94 599 patients, 13 217 vs 81 382 patients underwent surgery at a top-50 hospital versus a non-top 50 ranked hospital. Other than among patients who underwent colorectal surgery, the odds of postoperative complications were lower at top ranked vs non-top ranked hospitals (colorectal: OR, 1.46, 95% CI, 1.28-1.65; lung: OR, 0.73, 95% CI, 0.61-0.87; esophagus: OR, 0.70, 95% CI, 0.52-0.94; pancreas: OR, 0.81, 95% CI, 0.70-0.94; liver: OR, 0.85, 95% CI, 0.69-1.04). Moreover, the odds of 90-day mortality were lower at top ranked hospitals vs non-top ranked hospitals (colorectal: OR, 0.59, 95% CI, 0.48-74; lung: OR, 0.66, 95% CI, 0.53-0.82; esophagus: OR, 0.56, 95% CI, 0.40-0.80; pancreas: OR, 0.51, 95% CI, 0.40-0.65; liver: OR, 0.61, 95% CI, 0.44-0.84). Outcomes were comparable among hospitals within the top-50 rank. CONCLUSION: Mortality rates were lower at hospitals in the top-50 USNWR versus non-top ranked, yet hospitals within the top-50 USNWR rankings had comparable outcomes.

RESUMO

RATIONALE: Postoperative intussusception in adults is a rare but serious complication after gastrointestinal anastomosis surgery. Postoperative intussusception in adults caused by tube feeding was rarely been reported before. The aim of the current study was to summarize the clinical data on a group of patients with tube feeding associated postoperative intussusceptions. The possible etiology and preventive measures will also be discussed. PATIENT CONCERNS: During the period from May 2013 to January 2018, patients who received gastrointestinal anastomosis in our center were retrospectively reviewed. Preoperative variables including standard demographic and pathological characteristics as well as the treatment and prognosis were also analyzed. DIAGNOSES: Tube feeding associated postoperative intussusceptions. INTERVENTIONS: 7 patients were identified with tube feeding associated postoperative intussusceptions with a prevalence of 0.38%. Intussusceptions occurred from 10 to 69 days (median 25.7 days) postoperatively in an acute form. OUTCOMES: None of the patients had spontaneous reduction and all patients underwent surgery. Antegrade efferent limb intussusceptions were found in all the cases. Intussusception occurred at efferent loop at 23.6 cm (range 15-60) from the gastrointestinal or Braun anastomosis. None of the patients was found recurrence throughout the follow-up period. LESSONS: In contrast with other postoperative intussusceptions, the tube feeding associated postoperative intussusceptions have special clinical manifestations. It is more likely to occur in early period of time after the surgery and in an acute form. Surgical correction is recommended for most of patients. Several measures have been proposed to prevent such complications after gastrointestinal surgery, however more research and information are still needed.

RESUMO

This retrospective study evaluated operative outcomes when using a supraclavicular artery island flap (SAIF) combined with a sternohyoid muscle flap (SHMF) to reconstruct defects after hypopharyngeal carcinoma resection. Reconstructive surgery for hypopharyngeal and laryngeal defects was performed with the SAIF + SHME combination in 6 patients during 2016 to 2018. Within 14 to 16 days after the surgery, all 6 patients could ingest food and block the tube (avoiding aspiration), with no pharyngeal fistulas. They then underwent irradiation up to a total of 60.5 Gy during the 4 weeks postoperatively. All 6 flaps survived, and there were no donor-site complications except minor dehiscence in 1 patient. Thus, the SAIF + SHMF combination can be used to reconstruct hypopharyngeal and laryngeal defects after hemi-laryngectomy in patients with hypopharyngeal carcinoma involving the unilateral larynx. This technique effectively preserved the swallowing function and phonation of the patients, thereby improving their quality of life.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: With the improvements of surgical instruments and surgeons' experience, laparoscopic liver resection has been applied for recurrent tumors. However, the value of laparoscopic repeat liver resection (LRLR) is still controversial nowadays, which compelled us to conduct this meta-analysis to provide a comprehensive evidence about the efficacy of LRLR for recurrent liver cancer. METHODS: A computerized search was performed to identify all eligible trials published up to April 2019. This meta-analysis was conducted to estimate the perioperative data and oncological outcomes of LRLR by compared with open repeat liver resection (ORLR) and laparoscopic primary liver resection (LPLR). A fixed or random-effect modal was established to collect the data. RESULTS: A total of 1232 patients were included in this meta-analysis (LRLR: n = 364; ORLR: n = 396; LPLR: n = 472). LRLR did not increase the operative time compared to ORLR (WMD = 15.92 min; 95%CI: -33.53 to 65.37; P = .53). Conversely, LRLR for patients with recurrent tumors was associated with less intraoperative blood loss (WMD = -187.33 mL; 95%CI: -249.62 to -125.02; P < .00001), lower transfusion requirement (OR = 0.24; 95%CI: 0.06-1.03; P = .05), fewer major complications (OR = 0.42; 95%CI: 0.23-0.76; P = .004), and shorter hospital stays (WMD = -2.31; 95%CI: -3.55 to -1.07; P = .0003). In addition, the oncological outcomes were comparable between the two groups. However, as for the safety of LRLR compared with LPLR, although the operative time in LRLR group was longer than LPLR group (WMD = 58.63 min; 95%CI: 2.99-114.27; P = .04), the blood loss, transfusion rates, R0 resection, conversion, postoperative complications, and mortality were similar between the two groups. CONCLUSIONS: LRLR for recurrent liver cancer could be safe and feasible in selected patients when performed by experienced surgeons.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Patient-controlled intravenous analgesia (PCIA) and patient-controlled epidural analgesia are 2 common methods of maintaining analgesia after cesarean section. In recent years, transversus abdominis plane block (TAPB) has been gradually applied clinically to reduce opioid analgesics and has achieved good results. Therefore, we performed this study to compare the efficacy and side effects of TAPB and PCIA in analgesia after cesarean section. METHODS: One hundred patients who underwent cesarean section were randomly classified into 2 groups. Following surgery, one group underwent ultrasound-guided TAPB and the other group underwent PCIA. Pain intensity according to the visual analog scale (VAS; 0 for no pain and 10 for severe intolerable pain) was assessed at 2, 4, 6, 8, 12, and 24-hour postsurgery in both groups. The postoperative complication rate and patient satisfaction were also measured. RESULTS: No significant differences were found in the VAS scores between the groups (P > .05). However, the incidence of postoperative complications in the TAPB group was significantly lower than that in the PCIA group (P < .05). Furthermore, patient satisfaction in the TAPB group was significantly higher than that in the PCIA group (P < .05). CONCLUSION: This study demonstrated that ultrasound-guided TAPB can achieve the same analgesic effect as PCIA after cesarean section but with even higher patient satisfaction.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVE: to estimate the prevalence and avoidability of surgical adverse events in a teaching hospital and to classify the events according to the type of incident and degree of damage. METHOD: cross-sectional retrospective study carried out in two phases. In phase I, nurses performed a retrospective review on a simple randomized sample of 192 records of adult patients using the Canadian Adverse Events Study form for case tracking. Phase II aimed at confirming the adverse event by an expert committee composed of physicians and nurses. Data were analyzed by univariate descriptive statistics. RESULTS: the prevalence of surgical adverse events was 21.8%. In 52.4% of the cases, detection occurred on outpatient return. Of the 60 cases analyzed, 90% (n = 54) were preventable and more than two thirds resulted in mild to moderate damage. Surgical technical failures contributed in approximately 40% of the cases. There was a prevalence of the infection category associated with health care (50%, n = 30). Adverse events were mostly related to surgical site infection (30%, n = 18), suture dehiscence (16.7%, n = 10) and hematoma/seroma (15%, n = 9). CONCLUSION: the prevalence and avoidability of surgical adverse events are challenges faced by hospital management.
