OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to explore the efficacy of current bariatric perioperative measures at reducing emergency department (ED) visits following bariatric surgery in the state of Michigan. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: Many ED visits following bariatric surgery do not result in readmission and may be preventable. Little research exists evaluating the efficacy of perioperative measures aimed at reducing ED visits in this population. Therefore, understanding the driving factors behind these preventable ED visits may be a fruitful approach to prevention...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to review musculoskeletal disorder (MSD) prevalence among surgeons performing minimally invasive surgery. BACKGROUND: Advancements in laparoscopic surgery have primarily focused on enhancing patient benefits. However, compared with open surgery, laparoscopic surgery imposes greater ergonomic constraints on surgeons. Recent reports indicate a 73% to 88% prevalence of physical complaints among laparoscopic surgeons, which is greater than in the general working population, supporting the need to address the surgeons' physical health...

OBJECTIVE: To report long-term follow-up of patients with multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1) and nonfunctioning pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (NF-PET). BACKGROUND: Pancreaticoduodenal tumors occur in almost all patients with MEN1 and are a major cause of death. The natural history and clinical outcome are poorly defined, and management is still controversial for small NF-PET. METHODS: Clinical outcome and tumor progression were analyzed in 46 patients with MEN1 with 2 cm or smaller NF-PET who did not have surgery at the time of initial diagnosis...

OBJECTIVE: This randomized, phase II, multicenter clinical trial was conducted to evaluate the feasibility of laparoscopy-assisted distal gastrectomy (LADG) with D2 lymph node dissection compared with open distal gastrectomy (ODG) for the treatment of advanced gastric cancer (AGC). SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: D2 lymph node dissection has been accepted as standard treatment for AGC. Although LADG is widely performed in early gastric cancer (EGC), the feasibility of LADG in AGC has not been proven yet...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate (1) levels of the host-defense/antimicrobial peptide LL-37 in patients with trauma and hemorrhagic shock (HS) and (2) the effects of a synthetic host-defense peptide; Pep19-4LF on multiple organ failure (MOF) associated with HS. BACKGROUND: HS is a common cause of death in severely injured patients. There is no specific therapy that reduces HS-associated MOF. METHODS: (1) LL-37 was measured in 47 trauma/HS patients admitted to an urban major trauma center...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to compare the surgical outcomes of emergency operations performed at critical access and non-critical access hospitals. BACKGROUND: Critical access hospitals are often the only source of surgical care for rural populations. Previous studies have demonstrated that patients undergoing common, elective operations at these rural hospitals have similar outcomes to their urban counterparts. Little is known, however, about the quality of care these hospitals provide for emergency operations for which they are most essential...

For patients with hepatoblastoma, a timely and complete resection of the tumor is critical to the patient's tumor recurrence-free survival. Associating liver partition and portal vein ligation for staged hepatectomy (ALPPS), a 2-stage hepatectomy procedure, has revolutionized the surgical management of large hepatic tumors with insufficient future liver remnant (FLR) at presentation. Although existing data support the utility of ALPPS in adults with primary and metastatic hepatobiliary malignancy, the literature in children is scarce...

OBJECTIVE: We aimed to evaluate the association of epidural analgesia (EA) with hospital length of stay (LOS), wound morbidity, postoperative complications, and patient-reported outcomes in patients undergoing ventral hernia repair (VHR). BACKGROUND: EA has been shown to reduce LOS in certain surgical populations. The LOS benefit in VHR is unclear. METHODS: Patients having VHR performed in the Americas Hernia Society Quality Collaborative (AHSQC) were separated into 2 comparable groups matched on several confounding factors using a propensity score algorithm: one group received postoperative EA, and the other did not...

OBJECTIVE: To assess how virtual hepatectomy (VH), conducted using surgical planning software, influences the outcomes of liver surgery. BACKGROUND: Imaging technology visualizes the territories of the liver vessels, which were previously impossible. However, the clinical impact of VH has not been evaluated. METHODS: From 2004 to 2013, we performed 1194 VHs preoperatively. Outcomes of living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) and hepatectomy for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC)/colorectal liver metastases (CRLM) were compared between patients in whom VH was performed (VH) and those without VH evaluation (non-VH)...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the influence of donor age on recipient outcome after living-donor partial liver transplantation (LDLT). BACKGROUND: Donor age is a well-known prognostic factor in deceased donor liver transplantation; however, its role in LDLT remains unclear. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed 315 consecutive cases of primary adult-to-adult LDLT in our center between April 2006 and March 2014. Recipients were divided into 5 groups according to the donor age: D-20s (n = 60); D-30s (n = 72); D-40s (n = 57); D-50s (n = 94); and D-60s (n = 32)...

OBJECTIVE: We compared the incidence of appendicitis or appendectomy across the world and evaluated temporal trends. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: Population-based studies reported the incidence of appendicitis. METHODS: We searched MEDLINE and EMBASE databases for population-based studies reporting the incidence of appendicitis or appendectomy. Time trends were explored using Poisson regression and reported as annual percent change (APC) with 95% confidence intervals (CI)...

OBJECTIVE: Evaluate the dose-response relationship between intraoperative fluid administration and postoperative outcomes in a large cohort of surgical patients. BACKGROUND: Healthy humans may live in a state of fluid responsiveness without the need for fluid supplementation. Goal-directed protocols driven by such measures are limited in their ability to define the optimal fluid state during surgery. METHODS: This analysis of data on file included 92,094 adult patients undergoing noncardiac surgery with endotracheal intubation between 2007 and 2014 at an academic tertiary care hospital and two affiliated community hospitals...
