Frailty assessment in elective gastrointestinal oncogeriatric surgery: Predictors of one-year mortality and functional status

from Journal of Geriatric Oncology

Perioperative frailty assessment is still a challenge, especially in oncogeriatrics. This study aimed at assessing the diagnostic accuracy of the 40 items Frailty Index (FI) as compared to the comprehensive geriatric assessment (CGA) for the prediction of one-year mortality and functional status after colorectal surgery in old-age subjects. This is the first study to investigate the prognostic accuracy of the 40-items FI as compared to CGA in a vulnerable octogenarian cancer population. Its results are consistent with patient functional status being a mediator of frailty and with both serving as intertwined markers of clinical vulnerability. more
