Introduction: The increasing number of cardiovascular and/or neurological patients with polypathologic backgrounds has led practitioners to adapt the technical platform. The objective is to evaluate the indications of one-day hospitalization (ODH) in oral surgery set up in 2013 in the Max Fourestier Hospital (Nanterre), a comparative prospective study is carried out in 2014 and 2015. Material and methods: The evaluation criterion is the rate (%) of local or general perioperative complications requiring intervention or full hospitalization of patients at risk for oral surgery with ODH. Results: Sixty-eight interventions were performed, mainly dental extractions, root planning and biopsies. 52% of patients were women. Cardiovascular diseases (36%) were the majority. 20.58% of the included patients had a complication taken up by the practitioner or managed by the day hospitalization service. This rate of complications was statistically significantly different (χ2 = 9.89, P = 5%, NDF = 1) from the control group (3.80%). Discussion: The highest complication rate in polypathologic patients, confirms the indications of ODH. No conversion to full hospitalization was necessary thus this study shows that ODH allows a safe intake taking charge avoiding a full hospitalization of higher cost.
Key words: oral surgery / one-day hospitalization / cardiovascular disease / complication
