Author(s): Santosh Kumar Singh, Neeraj Nagarwal, Devendra Shukla, Vikas Kumar Dwivedi and Zaid A Khan
Abstract: Objectives: This study aims to study the effects of Preoperative lactate levels on morbidity and mortality of patients undergoing emergency abdominal surgeries.
Material and methods: All the patients undergone surgery for emergency abdominal conditions over a period of 1 year were included. Patient age of below 15 years and above 70 years were excluded.
Result: In our study of 86 patients, patients whose Preoperative lactate levels of <2.5 mmol/l and >2.5 mmol/l had mortality of 1 and 9 patients respectively (p=0.016), wound discharge among 11 and 10 patients (p=0.698), wound dehiscence among 9 and 7 patients (p=0.502), respiratory complication among 2 and 11 patients (p=0.016), prolonged ileus among 1 and 7 patients respectively (0.955).
Conclusion: Preoperative lactate levels > 2.5 mmol/l associated with higher chances of mortality and respiratory complication
