Limited information is available regarding surgical outcomes for patients in age group more than 60 years in Indian subcontinent. Due to ethnicity, work culture and socio demographic variables, accurate risk prediction and surgical outcome in Indian geriatric population is not well understood. Aim: Clinical profile and postoperative outcome of geriatric patients in a general surgery unit of a tertiary care hospital. Objective: 1. To study the clinical profile and clinico-pathological spectrum of comorbid conditions and potential risk factors in the geriatric general surgical patient at a tertiary care centre. 2.

As per ASA Criteria 34 % of patient fit to ASA I, 46 % to ASA II, 10 % to ASA III, 06 % to ASA IV and 4 % to ASA V.After applaying multivariate logistic regression analysis Multivariate logistic regression analysis revealed ASA classes II, III, IV and V compared to ASA class I, to be a significant, independent risk factor for complications, post op Morbidity and Mortality. In No Morbidity group (ASA class IV: odds ratio [OR] = 3.58, , P =.04; ASA class V: OR = 3.41, P =
