00:00:00
morning everyone of us allies of the members of the panel thank you very much
00:00:04
for the opportunity to be here to present our study the population data analysis
00:00:09
on the outcomes of being unknown femoral hernia repair in the elderly population i've got
00:00:15
which i which one of you is not familiar with the scenario we sit in our office with the
00:00:21
door comes eighty five year old patients yes there is something in my current it's hard to beat
00:00:26
doesn't stop me from my daily activities but my doctor said it could turn into
00:00:31
something dangerous and i should conceive surgeon are you going to break me
00:00:36
are you other um surgeons i've been thinking about this and tried to answer
00:00:42
it some define the elderly as people over sixty five years of age
00:00:46
then it up concluding that the cut off should be probably higher because there
00:00:50
is a difference between sixty five or older an eighty year old nowadays
00:00:55
others only focused on in this gothic treatments others only said this uh so
00:00:59
what happen in electing setting the ones that cover a lot topics
00:01:04
ended up having smaller samples which makes the representative eighty of
00:01:09
the elderly not so significant we try to take off mondays and
00:01:13
design also study that represents what is happening in switzerland
00:01:17
this would be our main question is there a difference in post operative mortality between the three age groups
00:01:22
we defy the divided the elderly between oxygen areas
00:01:26
and on the generic and excluded the children
00:01:30
gather data between two thousand five in two thousand sixteen from this may be seen
00:01:34
the statistic the condom highs that which gathers data from all hospitals in switzerland
00:01:39
only the allstate allies patients for all like no this medical or surgical
00:01:44
we extracted the patients that and awaiting the no informal hernia repair ended
00:01:48
up with a sample of one hundred eighty seven thousand patients
00:01:54
we had a male predominance we had morning we know any as we
00:01:58
have more femoral than using the females these are no surprises
00:02:02
that he in hospital mortality of these um population
00:02:07
was relatively low zero point fifteen percent if
00:02:10
we check the differences between the age groups in the younger population it's much lower
00:02:14
in the oxygen variance it reaches one percent and in the non engineering and it
00:02:19
almost goes to four percent which makes it rather than to for this patient
00:02:23
we also wanted to know if there would be a difference in our outcomes depending on the surgical approach
00:02:28
and the type of hernia if you was a recurrence or a primary
00:02:32
hernia if we're talking about an elective surgery or we art
00:02:37
emergency thirteen and if there was a need to perform the bowery section additionally to the hernia repair
00:02:45
the electives cases war ninety four percent the rest or emergencies
00:02:50
from our entire population throughout this eleven years only
00:02:54
four hundred forty patients needed a power section
00:02:58
um but eighty percent of these restrictions were performed in an emergency setting
00:03:04
the in hospital mortality in the electives cases e. zero point zero three percent
00:03:09
which would make this a it's actually it's safe procedure at least if you perform it in switzerland
00:03:15
but the difference is between age groups it goes higher in the elderly but with a steel
00:03:21
input numbers still under one percent when we compare these with emergency setting this situation changes
00:03:28
drastically especially for the elderly reaching four point five percent for the oxygen
00:03:34
areas and almost doubling to eight percent in the knowledge in areas
00:03:38
and here i am tempted to look at this date angle back to my patients
00:03:42
in my office and say yes i want to operate to you and it's
00:03:46
uh and and and not wait until you come into the emergency department with incarceration
00:03:52
but can i really just base myself on this data and answer this question
00:03:56
so that's why we are trying to also see what happens um
00:04:02
uh what are the other differences in our outcomes when you look at the l. status of this
00:04:06
patient before surgery and we are defining three operative morbidity based on our since you escort
00:04:12
and still conducting um we'll do variable analysis uh to to try to see how this affects our outcome
00:04:19
this data is not ready yet unfortunately so we have to wait for second that is what
00:04:24
down in hospital mortality when we perform the bowery section was
00:04:29
higher with seven point three percent for the total population
00:04:33
but when we look at the the values in the elderly it's the
00:04:37
really big difference reaching almost twenty five percent in the knowledge marion
00:04:42
and keeping in mind that eighty percent of these restrictions happened
00:04:46
in an emergency emergency setting i had this question
00:04:50
could be if the bowery section be a factor contributing to the
00:04:53
high mortality rate in an emergency operation it's just a question
00:04:58
about how our patients recover after surgery we define post operative morbidity has
00:05:04
the surgical related complications and excluded the non surgical related complications
00:05:09
as you can see you much all my is one of the most frequent it doesn't have that high frequency in the general population
00:05:16
to check with the what happens in the elderly it almost three four times higher
00:05:21
we can find very good medical reasons for that also the same we can see in the urinary retention is
00:05:26
almost doubled in this kind of patients but they're still
00:05:29
complications that are easily treated with conservative majors
00:05:34
there's still a lot that i would like to know sadly i don't have enough data for that because i would like to
00:05:39
know what is the quality of life of these patients after surgery
00:05:42
what happens with the internal the chronicle pain seems wrong
00:05:47
i also don't have data about the surgeries performed in outpatient setting that is becoming more frequent
00:05:53
and i don't have information about the patient that went to the doctor had the diagnosis but
00:05:58
somehow an elective procedure was rejected either the surgeon they don't want to recommend it
00:06:03
or the patient was afraid uh of the surgery accordingly physiologist use this
00:06:08
criteria to describe this patient as high risk or um i inoperable
00:06:14
so just to finish and probably over my time um we
00:06:18
saw a low in hospital mortality in post operative mobility
00:06:22
in the elderly in electives cases the situation isn't much
00:06:25
different in an emergency setting with high mortality rate
00:06:29
and these could probably be related to the need for
