The new Integrated Outpatient Surgery Centre (CICA) of Oporto’s Hospital Centre (CHP), opened in March/2011, developed around a paradigm of innovation and accurate protocols. Analysis of complications and Grade of satisfaction (Grade 1-5) of patients operated by Urology in the first 2 years of CICA, and their correlation through the χ2 test. 550 patients operated between March/2011 and April/2013, predominantly male (96.4%), mean age 43.5 years and anesthetic risk (ASA Average) 1.7. Main pathologies addressed: phimosis (34.0 %), hydrocele (22.7 %), varicocele (10.0%), and isolated short frenulum (6.9%). Mean surgical time 31.71 ± 14.32 min. Rate of early complications (< 28 days) was 4.9% and late complications (≥ 28 days) was 1.3%, with a median time between surgery and complication 8.5 days. 371 patients (67.5 % of the population) answered the telephone interview, presenting Satisfied and Very Satisfied (Grade 4 and 5, respectively) in 94.3% of the cases with surgery and 98.4% with the outpatient conditions and regime. Correlation between the presence of complications (early and late) and Grade of Satisfaction (Grade < 4 Vs. ≥ 4), showed a statistically significant (p<0.05) Minor Degree of Satisfaction with surgery (Grade < 4) and presence of early and late complications. Presence of complications, either early or late complications, determined a lesser degree of satisfaction with the surgical procedure.
