Abstract: A new vision for day surgery.
King's College Hospital, London.
J Perioper Pract. 2006 Jul;16(7):327-8.
The premise that underlines this article (based on a presentation delivered at AfPP's Annual Congress in October 2006) is that all elective surgery performed in this country should be day surgery. This should eventually include patients undergoing hip replacements, radical prostatectomies, aortic aneurysm repair and hepatectomies, to name a few. All of these procedures we should perform, safely and well, under the British definition of day surgery as 'going home at the end of the day'.
