In 2004 these data showed that overall 49.7% had no complications reported, 40.5% had 1-2 complications and 9.8% had 3+ complications. Removing PN & PVD [not collected in 2006], and recalculating the 2004 data showed 74.0% had no complications reported, 24.3% had 1-2 complications and 1.6% had 3+ complications.

The respective data for 2006 were similar:

74.1% [no complications] 23.9% [1-2 complications] and 2.0% [3+ complications]

The respective data for 2009 (showing more with complications) were:

66.3% [no complications] 27.3% [1-2 complications] and 6.4% [3+ complications]

The 2011 data [including PN & PVD] show that overall 61.7% had no complications reported, 30.0% had 1-2 complications and 8.3% had 3+ complications.

The respective data for 2009 recalculated after removing PN & PVD showed more with no complications in 2009 compared to the previous two ANDIAB collections:

81.5% [no complications] 17.3% [1-2 complications] and 1.2% [3+ complications]

The 2011 data recalculated after removing PN & PVD were similar to 2009, with 78.2% having no complications reported, 20.5% had 1-2 complications and 1.3% 3+ complications.

Whether this represents a true reduction in the occurrence of complications or reflects a reduction in reporting of complications in the last 2 ADNAIB collections is impossible to say.
