Outpatient surgery in a developing country

, : Outpatient surgery in a developing country. Lancet 1(7912): 910-912

233 outpatient operations were performed under general anaesthesia on Nigerian patients whose selection was not influenced by adverse social circumstances. The complication-rate was similar to that found in comparable series from the United Kingdom. The incidence of wound infection was related to the age and social circumstances of the patient and was not affected by the type of hospital in which the operation was performed.
