Cancer surgery patients have more complications, but less likely to die
Date:8/19/2013

re between 1999 and 2009.

The operations included partial or complete removal of a cancerous colon, bladder, esophagus, stomach, uterus, lung, pancreas or prostate.

Among the findings were "marked and worrisome increases" in the frequency of infections, pressure ulcers and respiratory failure after surgery.

But at the same time, there were also improvements in preventing anesthetic- and transfusion-related complications and hip fractures.

The researchers note the significance of this finding because Medicare curtailed the ability of hospitals to be reimbursed for "reasonably preventable events" since 2008 as an incentive to improve quality of care. The Affordable Care Act, which passed two years later, has added its own such initiatives.

"A rational approach to improving accountability for substandard care should begin with identifying the true burden of hospital-acquired adverse events," the study asserts.

In presenting their study, the researchers said it was launched at a time when medical errors in the U.S. cost an estimated $17 billion a year.
