Abstract: Aim of this study is the retrospective analysis of gynecologic operations in women at least 80 years of age. 439 operations (157 breast surgeries and 282 gynecologic procedures) were performed in women at least 80 years old. Complications occurred in 36,7% of the cohort. Breast surgeries had a very low morbidity and zero mortality. In gynecologic operations an acceptable complication rate was documented. The abdominal procedures had the highest morbidity and mortality of all operation groups.
