Introduction: The inflammatory response to a post-operative infection can increase the risk of tumour recurrence in cancer through the release of pro-inflammatory mediators. The aim of this study was review the literature to assess the relationship between post-operative complications and cancer recurrence. Methods: We performed a literature review of the mechanism of such an association and looked at evidence in different cancer subtypes. Results: A relationship has been identified for many… Expand

Topics from this paper

The relationship between post-surgery infection and breast cancer recurrence
Breast cancer is the second most prevalent form of cancer in women worldwide, with surgery remaining the standard treatment. The adverse impact of the surgery remains controversial. It has beenExpand
The relationship between post-surgery infection and breast cancer recurrence. A systematic review.
TLDR
There is association between SSI and adverse cancer outcomes, but the cellular-link between them remains elusive, and a standardised prospective study with appropriate statistical power is justified. Expand
The effect of postoperative complications on survival and recurrence after surgery for breast cancer: A systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
The effects of postoperative complication on prognosis following surgery for breast cancer was found to significantly affect 5-year recurrence-free survival, particularly for patients with poor Nottingham Prognostic Index. Expand
The effect of wound complications following mastectomy with immediate reconstruction on breast cancer recurrence.
TLDR
In breast cancer patients who undergo mastectomy with IBR, wound complications delayed initiation of adjuvant systemic therapy, but were not associated with an increased risk of cancer recurrence. Expand
Differential impacts of postoperative complications on patients’ survival in completely resected non-small-cell lung cancer
TLDR
The Cox proportional hazard model showed that the inflammatory respiratory complications had a significant impact on overall survival but not air leak, which was the only predictor of poor overall survival. Expand
The Impact of Postoperative Wound Complications on Oncological Outcomes Following Immediate Breast Reconstruction for Breast Cancer: A Meta-analysis.
TLDR
This meta-analysis demonstrated a higher incidence of wound complications following IBR and a statistically significant increased time to adjuvant therapy, however, this did not translate into adverse oncological outcomes in patients with breast cancer undergoing IBR. Expand
The Keys to Optimising Breast Wounds: A Meta-Analysis
TLDR
This study identified key factors associated with increased risk of breast surgery wound occurrence that will facilitate the development of a peri-operative breast wound bundle to optimize outcomes. Expand
The Impact of Healthcare-Associated Infections in Patients Undergoing Oncological Microvascular Head and Neck Reconstruction: A Prospective Multicentre Study
TLDR
The importance of preventing HAIs in head and neck cancer patients, as they have shown a higher risk of postoperative complications, is pointed out. Expand
Meta‐analysis of the impact of postoperative infective complications on oncological outcomes in colorectal cancer surgery
TLDR
A meta‐analysis was undertaken to assess the oncological effects of SSI in patients with colorectal cancer and found that postoperative infection and surgical site‐infection are not only uncomfortable for patients and costly, but may also be associated with poor oncology outcomes. Expand
Influence of postoperative complications on long-term outcome after oncologic lung resection surgery. Substudy of a randomized control trial
TLDR
In patients who are discharged after undergoing oncologic LRS, there is an association between POCs occurrence and long term outcome, and oncologist should pay special attention in patients who develop P OCs after LRS. Expand

Impact of infectious complications on gastric cancer recurrence
TLDR
Infectious complications were a risk factor for gastric cancer recurrence and the surgical procedure, surgical strategy, and perioperative care should be carefully planned to avoid causing infectious complications. Expand
Increased Local Recurrence and Reduced Survival From Colorectal Cancer Following Anastomotic Leak: Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
TLDR
AL has a negative prognostic impact on local recurrence after restorative resection of rectal cancer and a significant association between colorectal AL and reduced long-term cancer specific survival was also noted. Expand
Influence of complications following immediate breast reconstruction on breast cancer recurrence rates
TLDR
The aim of this study was to assess the relationship between complications and breast cancer recurrence in patients undergoing immediate reconstruction. Expand

TLDR
Intra-abdominal infection increases IL-6 and VEGF after surgery for colorectal cancer and Amplification of inflammation and angiogenesis might be one of the mechanisms responsible for the higher recurrence rate observed in patients with anastomotic leakage or intra-ABdominal abscess. Expand
Influence of Postoperative Infectious Complications on Long-Term Survival of Lung Cancer Patients: A Population-Based Cohort Study
TLDR
Postoperative complications, particularly of a major infectious type, are strong negative predictors of long-term survival in lung cancer patients and may open the door to investigational therapies targeting bacterial antigens in the perioperative period in patients who undergo lung cancer surgery. Expand
Surgery as a risk factor for breast cancer recurrence and metastasis: mediating mechanisms and clinical prophylactic approaches.
TLDR
The use of the suggested interventions has been shown to significantly reduce postoperative metastasis in animal models, including mammary adenocarcinoma, and initial data suggest similar efficacy in breast cancer patients. Expand
Postoperative wound complications and systemic recurrence in breast cancer
TLDR
The results suggest that patients with wound complications at primary surgery have increased rates of systemic recurrence of breast cancer. Expand

TLDR
A meta-analysis provided a list of predictable or preventable factors that could be taken measures to reduce the rate of breast SSIs and excluded some negligible factors. Expand
Prophylactic antibiotics to prevent surgical site infection after breast cancer surgery.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that prophylactic antibiotics administered preoperatively significantly reduce the incidence of SSI for patients undergoing breast cancer surgery without reconstruction, and further studies involving patients undergoing immediate breast reconstruction are needed. Expand
