The pre-anesthetic consultation is an important step before any surgical procedure. It may include paraclinical examinations in addition to the clinical examination. The objective of this study was to evaluate the relevance and the cost of prescribing preoperative checkups by Sourô Sanou Teaching Hospital (CHUSS) surgeons. It was a prospective cross-sectional study from March to August 2016. All preoperative examinations were analyzed according to the formal recommendations of experts from the French Society of Anesthesia- intensive Care Medicine. The medico-economic impact of the implementation of the recommendations was also analyzed. A total of 2603 pre-operative checkups prescribed in 400 patients were analyzed. The mean age of the patients was 28.59 years with a sex ratio of 0.83. Intermediate surgical risk (59.7%) was the most observed. The majority of patients were ASA 1 and 2 (99%). The most popular checkups were CBC (99%) followed by blood glucose (96.7%) and serum creatinine (92.7%). We found that 5.6% of the checkups were abnormal. Of the checkups prescribed, 74.6% did not comply with international recommendations. The CBC prescription had a high compliance rate (69.2%). The lowest compliance rates were: blood glucose (1.5%), renal function, and coagulation profile (17%). The cost generated by the excess prescription of preoperative examinations was estimated at 5484, 01 US dollar for all patients (13,715 US dollar/ patient on average). The preoperative checkups performed as part of a planned surgery are mostly inadequate with a real medico-economic impact.
