Management of Routine Surgery in Diabetes
Routine or elective minor and major surgery in diabetes must be taken equally seriously as the emergency surgery, in each and every aspect related to it. In emergency surgery, each stakeholder is prepared for a certain element of adverse or untoward happening. There is no guarantee that something similar may not happen in the elective cases, be it minor or major surgery, a distinction between the two made below. If it does happen it reflects extremely adversely over all those involved in the process, the hospital set up and can result in unseemly incidents which can undermine the morale of all concerned. In particular, explanation and documentation of the risk factors and the percentage possibility that it can happen in the said elective surgery would be the paramount, among other factors of care.
