The most expeditious way of reducing surgical costs is through reducing hospital stay.
Multivariate analysis was used to identify potentially alterable factors affecting postoperative hospital stay for 73 consecutive patients undergoing modified radical mastectomy by 6 surgeons during a 12-month period.
Stepwise logistic regression was used to identify independently significant preoperative variables associated with hospital stays egual to or greater than the median of 5 days.
Intraoperative technigues and postoperative management were then evaluated using Cox proportional hazards model, with length of stay as the dependent variable after consideration for the significant independent preoperative factors.
