Prevention and Treatment of Surgical Complications in Patients with Retroperitoneal Tumor
According to our recent studies, the rate of combined multiple organ resection was 25.2% among 523 cases of retroperitoneal tumor (RPT) surgeries. The most common combined abdominal and pelvic organ resections include kidney resection (n = 73, 13.96%), partial resection of small bowel (n = 51, 9.75%), adrenalectomy (n = 25, 4.78%), partial ureteral resection n = 22, 4.21%), resection of pancreatic body and tail (n = 20, 3.82%), adnexal resection (n = 15, 2.87%), splenectomy (n = 13, 2.49%), partial duodenal resection (n = 10, 1.91%), cystectomy (n = 10, 1.91%), distal gastrectomy (n = 7, 1.34%), and hysterectomy (n = 5, 0.96%). Major blood vessel excision and reconstruction are common during RPT surgery. Therefore, the complication rate of RPT surgery is relatively high. The proper treatment of intraoperative and postoperative complications is essential to RPT therapy.
