SANDOVAL TOBAR, Mauricio Eduardo; REYES COURT, Daniel  y  SANHUEZA OLEA, Víctor. Epidemiology of surgical pathology affecting the maxillofacial area, treated under general anesthesia at the Emergency Hospital Public Assistance between 2014 and 2016. Rev Chil Cir [online]. 2017, vol.69, n.4, pp.289-296. ISSN 0718-4026.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.rchic.2016.11.014.

Objective: To determine the experience of the specialty in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and Traumatology at the Hospital Emergency Assistance Publique, through epidemiology of surgical treatments carried out in major operating room, under general anesthesia during the period between November 2014 and July 2016. Material and methods: A retrospective study where the operative protocols of patients operated during the period analyzed was performed. Database information from major operating room for diagnosis, age, sex and type of surgical procedures was collected. 125 surgical procedures performed in 109 patients were included. Results: The average age of the operated patients was 38 years with a preponderance of males (70.6%); 50.4% of surgical procedures were for injuries in the maxillofacial area, where the mandibular fracture was the most common lesion (68.3%); 46.4% of the procedures were for infections in maxillofacial area, where the most common location was the submandibular anatomical space (25.8%). The rest of the procedures related to other diseases (3.2%). Discussion: In general the results are consistent with similar studies in emergency care hospitals. Conclusion: Within the pathologies of urgency of the maxillofacial territory, traumatic injuries and infections are those that most frequently require major surgery under general anesthesia. Patients undergoing surgery under general anesthesia in major operating room are mainly men, with mandibular fractures and submandibular space infections being the most frequent lesions in each type of pathology.
