Perioperative Aspirin Usage Survey

2015-09-29 08:08:23 | BioPortfolio


This is a survey of members of the American College of Surgeons (ACS), to describe and explore current patterns of their decisions about withholding or continuation for patients taking aspirin (ASA) in the perioperative period. Secondarily, the survey will also explore surgeons' knowledge about the risks and benefits attending this decision, and about national organizations' recommendations.


An announcement of the survey and invitation to participate will be posted in the "ACS Surgery News" newsletter published by the American College of Surgeons. Surgeons of all specialties will be invited to participate. No identifiers will be maintained with survey responses. In addition to the substantive questions below, typical demographic data will be obtained including participants' duration of practice, specialty, gender, state, etc.

The survey will include questions intended to characterize current practice surrounding the decision to continue or withhold aspirin in the perioperative period. Other questions will focus on surgeons' knowledge of national medical/surgical organizations that have published guidelines on the perioperative use of aspirin. Finally, other survey questions will characterize surgeons' knowledge of the platelet rebound effect.

Fluid accumulation in the outer layer of the MACULA LUTEA that results from intraocular or systemic insults. It may develop in a diffuse pattern where the macula appears thickened or it may acquire the characteristic petaloid appearance referred to as cystoid macular edema. Although macular edema may be associated with various underlying conditions, it is most commonly seen following intraocular surgery, venous occlusive disease, DIABETIC RETINOPATHY, and posterior segment inflammatory disease.
