Post-operative period is the time from the end of the operation to return to normal
daily activities. This period varies individually and is influenced by numerous factors.
It is characterised by restoring normal physiological functions-damaged tissue
healing and overall improvement in health condition, which has been undermined
by the underlying disease.
Most of the complications created in the early postoperative period, but some, even
life-threatening, may occur within six weeks after surgery. The last 10 years have witnessed
dramatic changes in the postoperative care of gynaecological patients. Cardiovascular
complications, to which we include thromboembolic disease, belong to
the second most common after infection, systemic complications of gynecologic surgery.
Overall, the estimated prevalence of serious complications is around 3.7 %.
