Breast surgeries at a day care centre: A clinical experience

Author(s): Dr. Deepti N Rao and Dr. Nanda Rajaneesh
Objective: To develop breast surgery protocol to allow patients to be operated and discharged on same day with minimum discomfort and complications.
Materials and Methods: Over a period of 2 years, patients with breast disorders were diagnosed and underwent day care surgery. Patient selection was done using a predetermined criteria. All surgeries were performed under general anaesthesia with drain inserted as per requirement. Follow up until wound healing was done.
Results: A total of 136 patients were operated (females: 92.8%, males: 7.2%), aged 26-45 years. Average surgical duration was <100min and most of them were discharged on same day of surgery; few within 23 hours. Bleeding, surgical site infection and drain complications were well tackled, only 2 patients needing re-surgery. Patient and family satisfaction was 8.2 on a 1-10 scale.
Conclusion: This day care breast surgery was well planned and patients were discharged within 23 hours, with no adverse effects.
