Elective surgery for colorectal cancer in the aged : a clinical-economical evaluation.
A series of 56 consecutive patients, referred for surgery to a specialized institute, had elective laparotomies with various surgical procedures aimed at curing locoregional colorectal cancer.
Data defining patient and tumour-related preoperative, operative and postoperative variables, including costs, were collected.
The study group was divided into two age groups (<65 vs = 65 years), which were similar in terms of patient-and tumour-related variables.
Differences were not statistically significant (£440 ; 95% exact CI ; £ - 50 ; 1800).
There is no evidence to suggest that there are any total charge differences in treating the two age groups, as confirmed by the cost analysis.
