Moonesinghe, S.R., Harris, S., Mythen, M.G., Rowan, K.M., Haddad, F.S., Emberton, M. and Grocott, M.P.W. (2014) Survival after postoperative morbidity: a longitudinal observational cohort study British Journal of Anaesthesia, 113, (6), pp. 977-84. (doi:10.1093/bja/aeu224).

Record type: Article


Prolonged morbidity after surgery is associated with a risk of premature death for a longer duration than perhaps is commonly thought; however, this risk falls with time. We suggest that prolonged postoperative morbidity measured in this way may be a valid indicator of the quality of surgical healthcare. Our findings reinforce the importance of research and quality improvement initiatives aimed at reducing the duration and severity of postoperative complications
