Abstract

Objectives: The requirement for overnight hospital stay should be considered preoperatively according to patient-related factors, type of surgery and anesthetic management plan. In this study, we aimed to define the major factors that influence consideration of overnight hospital stay in patients undergoing oral and maxillofacial (OMF) surgery in an operating room (OR) of a dental hospital in an outpatient setting.
