Keywords: postoperative period; complications; hypophosphatemia.


One of the hidden complications of the postoperative period is hypophosphatemia (HPE), which often develops imperceptibly, but can worsen the overall results of treatment. The objective of the work: to investigate the frequency of development of disorders of phosphate exchange in the postoperative period and to establish the possibility and effectiveness of correction of such violations. Materials and methods. The determination of phosphate levels was carried out in 328 patients undergoing surgical treatment in surgical operations of various surgical status. Results. The highest rate of HPE was observed in patients with burns (23.08 %), after neurosurgical (17.94 %) and abdominal (17.64 %) surgical interventions. It is established that the correction of severe HPE is advisable by intravenous administration of sodium D-fructose-1,6-diphosphate. Conclusion. In the postoperative period, HPE is common, but is successfully corrected to abstract values, which coincides with the clinical improvement of patients.
