The purpose of this study was to identify the preoperative factors that are predictive of prolonged ilospital length of stay (LOS) and to discuss strategies that might assist in minimizing LOS for this select group of patients.
Two hundred seventy-five arterial bypass procedures with the in situ technique were performed between 1986 and 1993.
The relationship between 14 preoperative variables and ilospital LOS was analyzed with both univariate (Kaplan-Meier) and multivariate (Cox regression) statistical techniques.
A model was developed to determine tile significant preoperative variables that were associated with prolonged LOS.
