Frailty is Associated with an Increased Risk of Major Adverse Outcomes in Elderly Patients Following Surgical Treatment of Hip Fracture.

We intended to explore the effect of level of frailty on, and relationship with, 1-, 3-, and 6-month postoperative emergency department visits, readmissions, and mortality. This is a prospective multi...

Frailty as a Predictor of Neurosurgical Outcomes in Brain Tumor Patients.

Preoperative risk assessment is important, but inexact, because physiologic reserves are difficult to measure. When assessing quality of life for brain tumor patients, having a better predictor of pos...

Frailty and functional decline after emergency abdominal surgery in the elderly: a prospective cohort study.

Frailty has been associated with an increased risk of adverse postoperative outcomes in elderly patients. We examined the impact of preoperative frailty on loss of functional independence following em...

Association of Preoperative Patient Frailty and Operative Stress With Postoperative Mortality.

Patients with frailty have higher risk for postoperative mortality and complications; however, most research has focused on small groups of high-risk procedures. The associations among frailty, operat...

Deficit Accumulation and Phenotype Assessments of Frailty Both Poorly Predict Duration of Hospitalization and Serious Complications after Noncardiac Surgery.

Frailty is associated with adverse postoperative outcomes, but it remains unclear which measure of frailty is best. This study compared two approaches: the Modified Frailty Index, which is a deficit a...

Pre-frailty and Rehospitalization in Cardiac Surgery

Background: It has been demonstrated that pre-frailty has more adverse outcomes after cardiac surgery, however, data on prognosis and long-term evolution in pre-frailty patients after card...

Frailty as a Predictor of Neurosurgical Outcomes in Brain Tumor Patients

Frailty as an adjunct to preoperative assessment of neurosurgical patients has never been evaluated. This study aims to determine if frailty predicts neurosurgical complications in brain t...

Frailty and Post-operative Complications in Older Surgical Patients: The Implication of Frailty and Preoperative Risk Assessment

Frailty is prevalent in older adults and may be a better predictor of post-operative morbidity and mortality than chronological age. Preoperative risk factors and physiological reserves we...

Frailty, Anesthesia and Complications.

Objectives: To assess the prevalence of frailty in patients older than 70 y/o in nephrourologic surgery. To study if preoperative frailty is an independent predictor of immediate postopera...

The Effect of Preoperative Hemotologic Markers on Postoperative Long-term and Short-term Outcomes for Laparoscopic Gastrectomy

The purpose of this study is to explore the effect of preoperative hemotologic markers on postoperative long-term and short-term outcomes for laparoscopic gastrectomy.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Persistent detrimental effects from treatment for a condition. Included are effects from surgery such as POSTOPERATIVE COMPLICATIONS, and from DRUG THERAPY, such as CHEMICALLY INDUCED DISORDERS, or other THERAPEUTICS. Failure to attain a desired outcome from treatment for the condition is not considered an adverse effect.

Abdominal symptoms after removal of the GALLBLADDER. The common postoperative symptoms are often the same as those present before the operation, such as COLIC, bloating, NAUSEA, and VOMITING. There is pain on palpation of the right upper quadrant and sometimes JAUNDICE. The term is often used, inaccurately, to describe such postoperative symptoms not due to gallbladder removal.

Standards for limiting worker exposure to airborne contaminants. They are the maximum concentration in air at which it is believed that a particular substance will not produce adverse health effects with repeated daily exposure. It can be a time-weighted average (TLV-TWA), a short-term value (TLV-STEL), or an instantaneous value (TLV-Ceiling). They are expressed either as parts per million (ppm) or milligram per cubic meter (mg/m3).

Temporary storage of information for a few seconds to hours, as opposed to long-term memory which refers to material stored for days, years, or a lifetime.

A physiochemical process which occurs in a wide range of organisms which unlike BASAL METABOLISM is not required for or essential to short-term survivability but to long-term general well-being of the organism.
