The purpose of this study is to establish normal postoperative changes in blood pressure in women undergoing scheduled gynecologic surgery requiring inpatient postoperative care. Also, to establish if there is a difference in normal postoperative blood pressure changes between elderly and non-elderly women undergoing scheduled gynecologic surgery requiring inpatient postoperative care.

Time Perspective: Retrospective
Official Title: Evaluation of Postoperative Blood Pressure Changes After Benign Gynecologic Surgery

Further study details as provided by University of Rochester:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Participants Who Underwent Gynecologic Surgery [ Time Frame: January 2007 to January 2008 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    491 women were included in analysis. Measure is categorized by the type of surgery.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Women With Asymptomatic Hypotension [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    % women with asymptomatic hypotension

  • Percentage of Participants Undergoing Different Types of Anesthesia [ Time Frame: January 2007 to January 2008 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Patients were given either general, regional or local-modified anesthesia care (LO-MAC). Some of the patients ended up getting both general and regional anesthesia (sometimes anesthesia team decides to add regional for postop pain control).

  • Surgical Time [ Time Frame: January 2007 to January 2008 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Length of surgery
