BACKGROUND: The metric "Unplanned returns to operating room (ROR)" is being tracked in surgical quality dashboards; 70% of unplanned RORs may be related to surgical complications. With increasing regionalization of trauma and complex surgical care at tertiary care academic centers, it is unclear if a simple ROR metric is a valid assessment of surgical quality at such centers. METHOD: A real-time electronic tool was used to identify all RORs-planned and unplanned-in a high-volume, high-complexity academic surgical practice at Mayo Clinic-Rochester within 45 days of the index operation...

PURPOSE: Preoperative antibiosis contributes up to one third of total antibiotic use in major hospitals. Choice of antibiotic is not uniformly standardized, and polypharmacy regimens may be used without knowing the effect on rates of surgical site infection, nonsurgical infections, or antibiotic resistance. Careful examination of trends in surgical prophylaxis is warranted. In this study, we aimed to examine our institution's experience with vagus nerve stimulator (VNS) implantation, focusing on association between perioperative antibiotic practices and postoperative infectious outcomes...

Rivaroxaban, dabigatran, apixaban and edoxaban are the four available new oral anticoagulants (NOAC) which are currently approved for venous thromboembolism prophylaxis after total hip and knee replacement. Large phase 3 and phase 4 studies comparing NOAC with low molecular weight heparins have shown similar results regarding the efficacy and safety of these two categories of anticoagulants. Management of bleeding complications is a matter of great significance. Three reversal agents have been developed: idarucizumab, andexanet alfa and ciraparantag...

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...

Bariatric surgery is currently the most effective treatment for morbid obesity and its associated metabolic complications. To ensure long-term postoperative success, patients must be prepared to adopt comprehensive lifestyle changes. This review summarizes the current evidence and expert opinions with regard to nutritional care in the perioperative and long-term postoperative periods. A literature search was performed with the use of different lines of searches for narrative reviews. Nutritional recommendations are divided into 3 main sections: 1) presurgery nutritional evaluation and presurgery diet and supplementation; 2) postsurgery diet progression, eating-related behaviors, and nutritional therapy for common gastrointestinal symptoms; and 3) recommendations for lifelong supplementation and advice for nutritional follow-up...

OBJECTIVE: Create practice guidelines for the appropriate use of red blood cell transfusions in hepatectomy. BACKGROUND: Hepatectomy is associated with a high prevalence of transfusions. A transfusion can be life-saving, but can be associated with important adverse effects. Given the prevalence, the potential for benefit and harm, and the difficulty in conducting clinical trials, transfusion in hepatectomy is well-suited for a study of appropriateness. METHODS: Using the RAND/UCLA appropriateness method, an international, multidisciplinary expert panel in hepatobiliary surgery, anesthesia, transfusion medicine, and critical care rated a series of 468 perioperative scenarios for transfusion appropriateness...

BACKGROUND: Colorectal surgery (CRS) patients are an at-risk population who are particularly vulnerable to postoperative infectious complications. Infectious complications range from minor infections including simple cystitis and superficial wound infections to life-threatening situations such as lobar pneumonia or anastomotic leak with fecal peritonitis. Within an enhanced recovery pathway (ERP), there are multiple approaches that can be used to reduce the risk of postoperative infections...

Raj S Kasthuri, Stephan Moll
Several new oral anticoagulants have recently been approved for the treatment of venous thromboembolism (VTE). In this review, we discuss the currently approved drugs and the factors that influence the choice of anticoagulant in a given patient. Once anticoagulation is initiated, periodic monitoring of adequacy of anticoagulation may be necessary depending on the choice of anticoagulant and patient-related factors, such as renal function. Situations that may warrant need for monitoring and the tests available for this purpose are discussed...

BACKGROUND: Malpractice claims that arise during the perioperative care of patients receiving orthopaedic procedures will frequently involve both orthopaedic surgeons and anesthesiologists. The Anesthesia Closed Claims database contains anesthesia malpractice claim data that can be used to investigate patient safety events arising during the care of orthopaedic patients and can provide insight into the medicolegal liability shared by the two specialties. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: (1) How do orthopaedic anesthetic malpractice claims differ from other anesthesia claims with regard to patient and case characteristics, common events and injuries, and liability profile? (2) What are the characteristics of patients who had neuraxial hematomas after spinal and epidural anesthesia for orthopaedic procedures? (3) What are the characteristics of patients who had orthopaedic anesthesia malpractice claims for central ischemic neurologic injury occurring during shoulder surgery in the beach chair position? (4) What are the characteristics of patients who had malpractice claims for respiratory depression and respiratory arrests in the postoperative period? METHODS: The Anesthesia Closed Claims Project database was the source of data for this study...

BACKGROUND CONTEXT: Over the last decade, clinical investigators and biomedical industry groups have used significant resources to develop advanced technologies that enable less invasive spine fusions. These minimally invasive surgery (MIS) technologies often require increased expenditures by hospitals and payers. While several small single center studies have suggested MIS technologies decrease surgical morbidity and reduce hospital stay, evidence documenting benefit from a patient perspective remains limited...

BACKGROUND: Pancreatoduodenectomy (PD) carries a high morbidity. Over time, pancreatic surgeons have altered their perioperative management in efforts to reduce morbidity rates, thereby creating major technical and management variations. We aim to evaluate the practice patterns of hepato-pancreato-biliary (HPB) surgeons across multiple regions worldwide. METHODS: Between May and August 2015, an anonymous 25-item survey questionnaire was electronically distributed to IHPBA (International Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Association) members regarding practice patterns and perioperative care of patients undergoing PD...

BACKGROUND: The use of intraoperative testing is central to anesthesia practice, and point-of-care testing (POCT) is often used. Nevertheless, POCT is costly and its contribution to patient outcome is unknown. There is a lack of guidelines to describe which patients should undergo intraoperative testing or how results should be applied. As such, we undertook a historical cohort study evaluating intraoperative testing practices within our region where POCT is not used. METHODS: In 2012, we obtained a random sample of 1,000 adult patients undergoing noncardiac surgery in three of our health system hospitals...

Nurses are knowledgeable regarding the importance of health-promoting activities such as healthy eating, physical activity, stress management, sleep hygiene, and maintaining healthy relationships. However, this knowledge may not translate into nurses' own self-care. Nurses may not follow recommended guidelines for physical activity and proper nutrition. Long hours, work overload, and shift work associated with nursing practice can be stressful and contribute to job dissatisfaction, burnout, and health consequences such as obesity and sleep disturbances...
