PREDICTIVE FACTORS OF POSTOPERATIVE SURGICAL COMPLICATIONS IN PATIENTS WITH EMERGENCY COLON CANCER SURGERY - A RETROSPECTIVE STUDY
Emergency colon cancer surgery is accompanied by high rates of postoperative complications. The study aims to identify factors that predict postoperative surgical complications in patients undergoing emergency surgery for colon cancer. We retrospectively analyzed the postoperative surgical complications on a group of 449 patients hospitalized and operated in an emergency for complicated colon cancer, in the General SurgeryClinics I and II of the County Emergency Clinical Hospital “St. Ap. Andrei ”from Galați in the period 2008-2017. Patients' data were collected from medical notes, operation notes, imaging, and laboratory data, at the time of the emergency intervention. The predictive factors for the occurrence of postoperative surgical complications were: age<68 years, history of non-neoplastic pathology, Davies score 3 or 4, Charlson score> 3, and age-adjusted Charlson score > 10, presence of coagulation disorders, sepsis or acidosis at admission.
