  1. Outcomes of anorectal disease in a health maintenance organization setting : The need for colorectal surgeons.

    Article, Communication - En anglais

    Meeting of The American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons. Seattle, Washington (USA), 1996/06/09.

    A delay to diagnosis or appropriate treatment occurred in 25 patients (25 percent), resulting in an adverse outcome in 15 people.

    Of these, five complications were caused by delayed diagnosis, and ten patients had symptoms that persisted from 5 months to 14 years (mean, 4.5 years).

    Seven unnecessary referrals to a gastroenterologist resulted in three unnecessary colonoscopies.

    Of 19 patients evaluated by a general surgeon, 4 had inadequate/inappropriate operations, 5 were untreated because of misdiagnosis, 3 correctly diagnosed were untreated, 3 had inappropriate follow-up, 1 was referred to a gastroenterologist, and 2 were advised to have appropriate treatment.
