Abstract

Purpose

Although laparoscopic colorectal surgery may permit early recovery and discharge from hospital, short lengths of stay are not routinely achieved. This is partly because accelerated recovery programs with early discharge are associated with high readmission and complication rates, especially after open colorectal surgery.

Methods

This study was designed to examine safety and outcomes after laparoscopic colectomy in cases discharged within 72 hours of surgery. A total of 118 consecutive patients (mean age 60 years) underwent elective laparoscopic colectomy by a single surgeon. An accelerated recovery program included an overnight intravenous patient- controlled analgesia pump, diet and oral analgesia on postoperative Day 1, and standardized discharge criteria.

Results

Mean body mass index was 28.5 (range, 20–45), and mean operative time was 142 minutes with no mortality. Median stay was 3 days, and 20 percent had a complication within 30 days. Eighty-two patients (70 percent) were discharged within 72 hours of surgery (10 Day 1; 46 Day 2; 26 Day 3). Patients were grouped and analyzed by day of discharge. Discharge on Days 1 to 2 was associated with significantly lower complication rates than seen for the overall group. Although patients discharged on Days 1 to 2 had the lowest readmission rate, this did not reach statistical significance.

Conclusions

Readmission and complication rates are low in patients discharged on Days 1, 2, or 3 after laparoscopic colectomy when using standardized postoperative care protocols and standardized discharge criteria.

Cold-Snare- kann Hot-Snare-Polypektomie kaum ersetzen

Bei der Abtragung größerer ungestielter Darmpolypen lohnt es sich, weiterhin der Hot-Snare-Technik zu vertrauen. Damit kommt es zwar etwas häufiger zu Komplikationen, dafür wesentlich seltener zu endoskopischen Rezidiven.

Weißer Hautkrebs: Ein Update zu Diagnostik und Therapie

18.07.2024 Fortbildungswoche 2024 Kongressbericht

In der aktualisierten Version der S3-Leitlinie „Aktinische Keratose und Plattenepithelkarzinom der Haut“ gibt es neue Empfehlungen, unter anderem zu erweiterten Optionen bei aktinischer Keratose sowie zur systemischen und chirurgischen Behandlung von Plattenepithelkarzinomen. Ein Überblick.

Vier Kriterien sprechen für ein erhöhtes Risiko nach Appendektomie

17.07.2024 Appendektomie Nachrichten

Um bei Kindern den Schweregrad einer Appendizitis und drohende Komplikationen richtig einzuschätzen, können sich Chirurginnen und Chirurgen auf die intraoperativen Kriterien des US-amerikanischen NSQIP Pediatric stützen.

Partielle Nephrektomie: Videoanalysen zur Verbesserung der chirurgischen Qualität

16.07.2024 Nephrektomie Nachrichten

Je versierter Operateurinnen und Operateure sind, desto geringer ist das Risiko für Komplikationen. Eine kleine US-Studie spricht dafür, dass das auch bei Roboter-assistierten Nephrektomien gilt – und dass sich Op.-Videos für die Beurteilung eignen.

S3-Leitlinie „Diagnostik und Therapie des Karpaltunnelsyndroms“

Karpaltunnelsyndrom BDC Leitlinien Webinare
CME: 2 Punkte

Das Karpaltunnelsyndrom ist die häufigste Kompressionsneuropathie peripherer Nerven. Obwohl die Anamnese mit dem nächtlichen Einschlafen der Hand (Brachialgia parästhetica nocturna) sehr typisch ist, ist eine klinisch-neurologische Untersuchung und Elektroneurografie in manchen Fällen auch eine Neurosonografie erforderlich. Im Anfangsstadium sind konservative Maßnahmen (Handgelenksschiene, Ergotherapie) empfehlenswert. Bei nicht Ansprechen der konservativen Therapie oder Auftreten von neurologischen Ausfällen ist eine Dekompression des N. medianus am Karpaltunnel indiziert.

Das Webinar beschäftigt sich mit Fragen und Antworten zu Diagnostik und Klassifikation sowie Möglichkeiten des Ausschlusses von Zusatzverletzungen. Die Referenten erläutern, welche Frakturen konservativ behandelt werden können und wie. Das Webinar beantwortet die Frage nach aktuellen operativen Therapiekonzepten: Welcher Zugang, welches Osteosynthesematerial? Auf was muss bei der Nachbehandlung der distalen Radiusfraktur geachtet werden?
