Why is it important?
We prospectively maintained a database in our Institution during a 17-year period from November 2000 to December 2017 (421 patients). We select 200 patients who fulfilled the inclusion criteria and describe statistical correlations between risk factors and postoperative complications rates (univariate analysis). Nutritional status was evaluated as a risk factor for the development of infectious complications and assessed by providing each patient with a Subjective Global Assessment (SGA) form, defining 3 groups (well nourished, mildly moderately malnourished and severely malnourished).
