AIM: To evaluate the clinical effects of integrated perioperative nursing in patients undergoing transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) for cirrhotic portal hypertension. METHODS: One hundred and twenty patients with cirrhotic portal hypertension who underwent TIPS treatment at Lihuili Hospital of Ningbo Medical Treatment Center from January 2011 to December 2013 were divided into either a study group or a control group based on the method of care. The control group received conventional care, and the study group received integrated perioperative nursing care on the basis of conventional care, including preoperative and postoperative care. Patient’s satisfaction with nursing care, postoperative complications and comfort level were compared for the two groups. RESULTS: Patient’s satisfaction with nursing care was significantly higher in the study group than in the control group (93.3% vs 73.3%, P < 0.05). The incidence of postoperative complications was significantly lower in the study group than in the control group (6.7% vs 18.3%, P < 0.05). The percentages of patients with mild, moderate and high levels of discomfort were 71.7%, 15.0%, and 13.3%, respectively, significantly higher than those in the control group (11.7%, 26.7%, and 61.6 %, respectively; P < 0.05). CONCLUSION: Integrated perioperative nursing in patients undergoing transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt for cirrhotic portal hypertension can facilitate postoperative recovery, effectively reduce postoperative complications, and improve patient’s satisfaction with clinical care and postoperative comfort. © 2015 Baishideng Publishing Group Inc.
