Abstract


Background: Textbook Oncologic Outcome (TOO) serves as a comprehensive quality metric, representing the optimal outcome for oncological patients undergoing therapeutic surgery and, consequently, indicating the quality of healthcare provided.


Methods: The TOO variables were applied to the entire cohort of adult patients (≥18 years of age) diagnosed with esophagus, stomach, pancreas, colon, rectum, urinary bladder, or ovarian cancer at the Portuguese Institute of Oncology of Porto (IPO-Porto) between January 1st, 2022, and June 30th, 2022. This evaluation specifically included patients who underwent surgery with curative intent.


Results: A thorough assessment was conducted on 288 patients. Among the 143 patients with colon cancer, 69.9% achieved the TOO benchmark; for the 46 rectum cancer patients, TOO was attained by 57.1%; 40.0% of the 15 patients with esophageal cancer met the TOO criteria; 59.7% of the 67 patients with stomach cancer achieved TOO; 40% of the 5 patients with pancreatic cancer met the TOO standard; 45.5% of the 12 patients with urinary bladder cancer achieved TOO, while 66.7% of the 9 women with ovarian cancer reached the TOO benchmark. These results are comparable to those of the best comprehensive cancer centers.


Conclusions: Achieving optimal TOO not only signifies the quality of patient care but also reflects positively on the institution. Subsequently, despite obtaining relevant results, there is potential for improving outcomes for patients at IPO-Porto, particularly concerning the evaluated cancers.
