BACKGROUND Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors have been associated with an increased bleeding tendency. Information on the impact of a possible impaired hemostasis associated with the perioperative use of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors is limited. This study aimed to determine the association between the perioperative use of selective(More)
It has been suggested that clozapine has one of the largest diabetic effects of all atypical antipsychotics. To confirm these findings, we examined retrospectively the risk of new-onset diabetes in long-term clozapine treatment compared to treatment with other antipsychotics in a matched control population with schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder.(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of our study was to assess the influence of visceral obesity (VO), as measured by preoperative abdominal CT scan, in relation to body mass index (BMI) on the incidence of postoperative complications and duration of hospital stay after colon cancer surgery. METHODS Patients who underwent elective resection for colon cancer between(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the association between the use of a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) and the occurrence of QT interval prolongation in an elderly surgical population. METHOD A cross-sectional study was conducted among patients (> 60 years) scheduled for outpatient preanesthesia evaluation in the period 2007 until 2012. The index(More)
BACKGROUND The influence of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) on blood pressure is poorly understood. We hypothesized that if SSRIs have an influence on blood pressure, this might become manifest in changes in intraoperative blood pressure. We aimed to study the association between perioperative use of SSRIs and changes in intraoperative blood(More)
BACKGROUND This study aimed to explore the occurrence and determinants of poor response to short-term pre-operative erythropoietin treatment and the effect of such poor response on transfusion in total hip arthroplasty patients. METHODS We studied total hip arthroplasty patients who received erythropoietin before surgery. The primary outcome was the(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the occurrence of intraoperative hemodynamic events when antidepressive treatment with monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) was continued during anesthesia. METHOD A retrospective observational cohort study was conducted among patients who were admitted for elective surgery requiring anesthesia in 8 Dutch hospitals (2004-2010).(More)
OBJECTIVE To gain insight into the outcomes of postoperative pain treatment using patient-controlled intravenous analgesia (PCIA) with morphine and oral analgesics after total hip or knee arthroplasty (THA or TKA). DESIGN Prospective observational study. METHOD In 2006-2007, 154 THA and 110 TKA patients who underwent arthroplasty at the Medical Centre(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS A new Body Mass Index (BMI) formula has been developed for a better approximation of under and overweight. The aim of this study was to investigate the predictive value of this newly proposed BMI formula for postoperative complications in elective colorectal cancer surgery compared with the conventional BMI formula. METHODS A digital(More)
Background Although monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) have been available for more than 50 years, the perioperative management of patients treated with MAOIs is still under discussion. There are no evidence-based guidelines and experts disagree whether to continue the use of MAOIs before surgery or not. From the point of view of appropriately treating(More)
