Abstract PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the risk factors and outcome of patients with hyperbilirubinemia after surgery for generalized peritonitis. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed data from 229 patients with generalized peritonitis caused by gastrointestinal (GI) perforations. RESULTS: Postoperative hyperbilirubinemia defined as a value of > or =5 mg/dl, within 1 month, developed in 39 patients. Postoperative hyperbilirubinemia was related to age ( P = 0.0102), poor nutritional status ( P = 0.0388), decreased base excess ( P = 0.0037), delay until surgery ( P = 0.0276), preoperative serum bilirubin ( P = 0.0321) and postoperative persistent infection ( P < 0.0001). Higher mortality was seen in patients with hyperbilirubinemia (59\%) than in those without hyperbilirubinemia (4\%). The patients with hyperbilirubinemia who survived had decreased serum bilirubin levels after 3-5 postoperative days whereas a continuous increase was seen in the patients who ultimately died. Preoperative shock ( P = 0.0003), a decreased preoperative platelet count ( P = 0.0152), postoperative infection ( P = 0.0050), and postoperative hyperbilirubinemia ( P < 0.0001) were risk factors for overall mortality. CONCLUSION: These results indicate that postoperative hyperbilirubinemia in patients with GI perforation is related to persistent postoperative infection and associated with poor prognosis.
