Risks of Kids' Surgeries May Not Stick With Parents
Date:3/17/2010

s with lower education levels remembered more risks than better-educated parents. Mothers remembered more risks than fathers.

"Although formal counseling with detailed data sheets does improve patient surgical risk recall, no parent was able to recall 100 percent [nine of nine] of the intended surgical risks," the researchers wrote. "The overall risk recall rate for this study was 57.5 percent, which is largely disappointing given the effort that was put forth to improve recall."

"Clearly, more efforts need to be made by physicians to study this process to better understand the factors that may affect the informed consent process, with the goal of patients and parents being better informed of the basic risks before surgery," they concluded.

The study was published in the March issue of Archives of Otolaryngology -- Head & Neck Surgery.
