Glioblastoma multiforme is the most frequent malignant tumour of the central nervous system, and its incidence reaches 80% in those over 50 years of age. Life expectancy has increased in the population in recent times and an analysis of the post-surgicalcomplications affecting elderly patients is of great importance for a correct surgical indication.
To analyse the factors related with post-surgical complications in elderly patients.
PATIENTS AND METHODS:
A sample of 88 patients diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme between 31 and 78 years of age was analysed retrospectively. The variables taken into consideration in the study were: personal medical history, age, functional status, pre-anaesthetic status, tumour characteristics, type of surgery and post-surgical complications.
Age was observed to have an influence on local (p = 0.006) and systemic surgical complications (p = 0.034), and on the Clavien-Dindo scale (p = 0.001). Persons with a poorer functional status and cardiovascular risk presented more systemic complications (p = 0.006 and 0.044) and a lower score on the Clavien-Dindo scale (p = 0.024 and 0.025) respectively.
Likewise, more local complications are found in the case of excisional procedures than in biopsies (p = 0.027). The pre-anaesthetic status and anti-haemostatic treatments were not relatedwith such events.
Patients over 65 years of age present a higher incidence of pathological antecedents and a poorer pre-surgical functional status. Age, cardiovascular risk, functional status and the type of surgical procedure have significantly increased the occurrence of post-surgical complications.
