American Society of Anesthesiologists class and Charlson's comorbidity index as predictors of postoperative colorectal anastomotic leak: a single-institution experience

The Journal of Surgical Research

Wei Phin TanScott D Goldstein

Abstract

The American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) physical status classification and Charlson comorbidity index (CCI) was adopted to assess patients' physical condition before surgery. Studies suggest that ASA score and CCI might be a prognostic criterion (indicator) for patient outcome. ...read more

Multiple Myeloma is a cancer of the plasma cells, which normally is involved in antibody production. Discover the latest research on Multiple Myeloma here.

Atrial Filbrillation

Atrial fibrillation refers to the abnormal heart rhythm characterized by rapid and irregular beating of the atria. Here is the latest research.

Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation is a common arrhythmia that is associated with substantial morbidity and mortality, particularly due to stroke and thromboembolism. Here is the latest research.

Chromosomal Deletion

Chromosomal deletion includes the loss of a gene sequence of DNA. The location and the genes deleted determines the significance of this abnormality. There are many identified genetic disorders that are a result from chromosomal deletion including cri du chat and Prader-Willi syndrome. Discover the latest research on chromosomal deletions here.

Angelman Syndrome

Angelman syndrome is a neurogenetic imprinting disorder caused by loss of the maternally inherited UBE3A gene and is characterized by generalized epilepsy, limited expressive speech, sleep dysfunction, and movement disorders. Here is the latest research.

Inflammatory Bowel Disease
