Abstract:   (1689 Views)
From 1983 until 1987, 4177 outpatient urologic procedures were performed at Shahid Labbafi Nejad Medical Center. 34% of the cases were open surgical, while 66% were endourologic procedures. There was no surgical complication related to the outpatient aspect of the procedure. Rate of infection in open surgical cases was almost zero. The number of procedures was increased each succeeding year. Also more difficult cases (like penile prosthesis, epididymovasostomy, priapism, sphincterotomy, ... ) were included in the program. We recommend outpatient surgery as one of the best approaches to make surgery much more economic and if properly done, still offer better quality care to the patient.
