PREOPERATIVE PROTOCOL AND MORBIMORTALITY IN CERVICAL SURGERY WITH ANTERIOR APPROACH
Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
ABSTRACT Objective: To determine the correlation between morbidity/mortality and the pre-surgical protocol in patients undergoing anterior cervical surgical approach. Methods: Retrospective, cross-sectional and descriptive study, in which 114 patients who underwent anterior cervical surgical approach were reviewed, divided into two groups: “Group A” Conventional Presurgical Protocol (CPP) and “Group B” Extended Presurgical Protocol (EPP). Statistical analysis used the IBM SPSS Statistics Base v.24 software. Results: We evaluated 114 patients, 35 from “Group A”, 79 from “Group B”, 83 (72.8%) with cervical myelopathy, 30 (26.3%) with cervicobrachialgia. “Group A” had 10 cases of respiratory failure, with 5 secondary to bronchial secretion, 2 secondary to cervical hematoma. “Group B” had 12 cases of respiratory failure, 3 secondary to bronchial secretion and 1 secondary to cervical hematoma. Conclusions: The extended presurgical protocol can be the answer to reduce complications by improving selection parameters of the candidate patient for a surgical procedure of the cervical spine.
