Resumen

BANNURA C, Guillermo et al. Hospital readmission rates in complex colorrectal surgery. Rev Chil Cir [online]. 2015, vol.67, n.4, pp.393-398. ISSN 0718-4026.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-40262015000400008.

Background: Non programmed hospital readmission rates are a quality indicator of colorectal surgery. Aim: To analyze the causes of readmission of patients subjected to surgical procedures including intestinal anastomoses. Material and Methods: Analysis of a database of patients subjected to elective intestinal anastomoses in a period of 10 years. All non-programmed readmissions that occurred within 30 days after patient discharge were analyzed. Results: Overall non-programmed readmission rate was 7% and it was due to medical causes in 55% of patients. Nine percent of readmitted patients required a new surgical intervention. The figure among patients readmitted due to surgical causes, was 20%. Sixty one percent of patients were admitted at less than six days after discharge and 84% at less than 10 days. A non-programmed readmission duplicated the total hospitalization lapse and triplicated the rates of new surgical procedures. Conclusions: In this series of patients, the only predictor of a non-programmed readmission was the need for reoperation during the first admission.
