Which are correct:
1) As in the last three years, next year our production will increase.
2) As with the last three years, next year our production will increase.

3) In this operation, as in all other operations of this kind, there is a high risk of bleeding.
4) In this operation, as with all other operations of this kind, there is a high risk of bleeding.


Gratefully,

Production will not increase and there is little risk of bleeding.

They all sound fine to me, although I have a slight reservation with sentence 4. I think most speakers would use either "with" or "in" in both halves of the sentence:
  • In this operation, as in all other operations of this kind, there is a high risk of bleeding.
  • With this operation, as with all other operations of this kind, there is a high risk of bleeding.
But you would undoubtedly also hear mixed sentences like your sentence 4 as well.
