  1. Septoplasty as a day-case procedure : a two centre study.

    Article - En anglais

    Day-stay surgery is an integral part of Otolaryngology.

    Many procedures which have traditionally been thought to require overnight stay can be carried out on a day care basis.

    We report our experience of treating 163 patients admitted for septal surgery as a day-case procedure.

    The paper summarizes the experience of two centres.

    One of these is a London Teaching Hospital, where surgery was performed through a dedicated day-case unit, and the other is a District General Hospital where patients were admitted to a day-case unit but had their surgery on a routine in-patient list.

    As the result of this study we conclude that day-stay septoplasty is associated with a low complication rate and is a safe and acceptable procedure provided that strict selection criteria are followed.

    The cost implications are discussed.
