Anil Kumar MS, Raxith Sringeri, Thanuja
This study was conducted on 60 patients who underwent major elective abdominal surgery at JSSH, Mysore between October 2013 to September 2015. Sr. albumin and BMI were estimated preoperatively and postoperative complications were noted. Statistical analysis was done accordingly, p value < 0.05 was considered statistically significant. Z- test and Fischer exact t- test were used for analysis. Increased post-operative morbidity is seen in patients with Sr. albumin < 3.0g/dl. There is no mortality in our study. There was no significant correlation between BMI and postoperative outcome in these patients.
