In major elective surgery, epidural analgesia reduces mortality and pulmonary complications. We aimed to evaluate the association between epidural analgesia and mortality in emergency abdominal surgery.METHODS: In this population-based cohort study with prospective data collection, we included adults undergoing emergency abdominal laparotomy or laparoscopy between 1 January 2009 and 31 December 2010 at 13 Danish hospitals. Appendectomies were excluded. The primary outcome was 90-day mortality. Secondary outcomes included 30-day mortality and serious adverse events. We used binary logistic regression analyses (odds ratios (ORs) with 95{\%} confidence intervals (CIs)).RESULTS: We included 4 920 patients, of which 1 134 (23.0{\%}) died within 90 days. Overall, 27.9{\%} of the patients were treated with epidural analgesia perioperatively. This increased to 34.0{\%} among patients undergoing major laparotomy. The crude and adjusted association between epidural analgesia and 90-day mortality was OR 0.99 (95{\%}CI: 0.86-1.15, P=0.94) and OR 0.80 (95{\%}CI: 0.67-0.94; P= 0.01), respectively. For 30-day mortality the corresponding estimates were OR 0.90 (95{\%}CI: 0.76-1.06, P=0.21) and OR 0.75 (95{\%}CI: 0.62-0.90, P<0.01), respectively. No serious adverse events were reported.CONCLUSION: In this population-based cohort study of adult patients undergoing emergency abdominal surgery, we found that the use of epidural analgesia perioperatively was associated with a decreased risk of mortality in the adjusted analysis.",
