high risk procedures
High-risk procedures
  • The high-risk procedures covered by this guidance include:
  • intradural operations on the brain
  • posterior eye surgery
    • excision of eye
    • operations on vitreous body
    • photocoagulation of the retina for detachment (only when the retina is handled directly)
    • destruction of lesion of retina
    • other operations on the retina

recommendations
Recommendations
  • For high-risk surgical procedures
  • Use separate pool of instruments for children born since 1st January 1997.
  • Steps should be taken to ensure that instruments that come into contact with high-risk tissues do not move from one set to another.
  • Implement strategies to ensure that instruments stay together within sets.
  • Practice should be audited and systems put in place to track surgical instruments.
  • All supplementary instruments should be single use or remain with the set to which they have been introduced.
  • • Hospitals should ensure that an adequate supply of instruments is available.

Recommendations
  • Neuroendoscopy:
  • • Use separate pool of neuroendoscopes for children born since 1st January 1997.
  • • Use rigid neuroendoscopes whenever possible. Thoroughly clean and autoclave after use.
  • • All accessories should be single use.

for discussion
For discussion
  • Which recommendations present the greatest challenge for local practice?
  • What changes do we need to make to neurosurgery services?
  • What changes do we need to make to ophthalmic surgical services?
  • How do we track instruments to stop migration between sets?
  • What are the next steps to be considered in implementing the guidance locally?
