Keywords:Hospital care, Dental care, Hospital dental team, Epidemiological survey
The present study aimed to characterize the procedures performed by the oral and maxillofacial surgery team at a Brazilian reference hospital in a Brazilian city, as well as to describe the time trend of the number of services related to different types of surgery. It is a time-series study that assessed the data from the medical records of patients assisted at a reference hospital in a city in the state of Mato Grosso (Brazil), from 2011 to 2017. The data were assessed using descriptive statistical analysis, correspondence analysis (CA), and time trend analysis. A total of 1488 medical records were evaluated, the majority of which corresponded to male patients (59%), extractions were the most performed procedures (46.2%), local anesthesia was the most applied technique (50.3%), and the procedures were mostly performed in an outpatient environment (53.2%). There was a decreasing global time trend (R2 = 0.248; p < 0.001). Male patients are the most assisted in hospital care and are particularly related to more invasive procedures; there is also a decreasing curve of assistance over the years in the oral and maxillofacial surgery and traumatology service of the hospital studied.
