Abstract: OBJECTIVE: To analyze data corresponding to patients who underwent dermatological surgery in an operating room. MATERIAL AND METHODS: This was a descriptive, retrospective study of operating room activities in the dermatology department of Hospital Universitario de Fuenlabrada in Madrid between January 2005 and December 2010. We analyzed the relative frequency of a range of patient and procedure-related variables, as well as substitution and cancellation rates, the proportional risk of complications, and operating room efficiency. RESULTS: In the period analyzed, 11,516 patients underwent surgery: 9351 required minor surgery, 1998 major ambulatory surgery, and 167 surgery requiring hospitalization. Simple excision was the most common procedure (64.7%), and in the majority of cases (85%), the condition was benign. The mean number of patients treated per day was 9.7, and mean operating room efficiency was 71.9%. CONCLUSIONS: Accurate record-keeping is essential for analyzing operating room activities and comparing results with those from other centers. The analysis of patterns over time shows the effect of changes made on different indicators. In our case, a decrease in operating room efficiency was seen with an increase in the number of patients per day undergoing surgery.
