CSENDES J., Attila; CUNEO B., Nicole; FIGUEROA-GIRALT, Manuel  y  ORELLANA E., Omar. Evolution of surgeries due to diseases of the proximal intestine and anexal glands perfomed in Chile between 2011 and 2016. Rev. cir. [online]. 2019, vol.71, n.2, pp.111-117. ISSN 2452-4557.


The number of operations performed in Chile due to diseases for the foregut, have been every time more precise and complete in the National Register Data of Statistics in Health (MINSAL), and published in several reports (years 1983, 2005 and 2011).


a) to incorporate data of new operations not included before and b) to compare the results of high complex operations reported on 2011 and 2016.

Material and Methods:

from the DEIS (Department of Statistics and Information of Health) we obtained the total number of operations performed during 2016, and the operative mortality at the time of discharge from the hospital for different diseases of the foregut been the majority malignant tumors: esophageal cancer, gastric cancer, pancreatic cancer, liver and bile ducts carcinoma, and cancer of the gallbladder. The results were compared to dose obtained the year 2011.


The annual lethality of digestive malignant tumors showed an increase in pancreatic and liver cancer, while a decrease was observed in patients with esophageal cancer al gallbladder cancer. Operations for benign pathology like esophagomiotomy and laparoscopic antireflux surgery showed no mortality, as well as gastric bypass. Laparoscopic cholecistectomy, and laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy presented a very low mortality. Surgical procedures for malignant diseases showed a decrease in operative mortality compare to 2011, although not significant.


The present study shows an increase in the operations for foregut diseases performed during 2016 compared with the year 2011, as well as a decrease in operative mortality.
