Day Care Ear Surgery: Our Experience of 4 Years

 

Abstract

Day care surgery is gaining wide popularity not only in the West, but also in our country. We present our experience of 4 years of day care surgery in otological practice. To identify the scope of day care ear surgery in our rural setup and to determine the rate of complications, if any, of day care ear surgery. A prospective study of major ear cases operated in M.I.M.E.R. Medical College and Sushrut ENT Hospital was carried out from January 2005 to December 2008 with a minimum follow up of 2 years. In the period from 2005 to 2008, a total of 527 major ear cases were operated. There was re-admission of 5 operated patients (0.94%). The acceptance of day care ear surgery is enormous in our rural setup due to its obvious advantages.
