BACKGROUND: Readmissions after pulmonary lobectomy for lung cancer are important markers of healthcare quality for surgeons and hospitals. The implications on resources and quality are magnified when examining patients who require multiple readmissions within the perioperative period. METHODS: The Nationwide Readmission Database (NRD) between 2013 and 2014 was investigated for patients with a primary diagnosis of lung cancer who underwent pulmonary lobectomy. Using adjusted hierarchical regression models, demographic and clinical factors during the index hospitalization were investigated for associations with single and multiple readmissions during the 90-day postoperative period...

BACKGROUND: There have been concerns that the antifibrinolytic drug tranexamic acid (TXA) might increase the postoperative risk of cardiovascular events. Our objective was to determine whether perioperative TXA use is associated with cardiovascular events and death within 30 days after primary total hip arthroplasty (THA). METHODS: We conducted a nationwide cohort study of cardiovascular outcomes after perioperative exposure to tranexamic acid during THA. We included 45,290 patients who had a THA in the study period of 2006 to 2013; 38,586 received perioperative TXA, and 6,704 did not...

BACKGROUND: Broncho-pleural fistula (BPF) and respiratory failure (RF) are life-threatening complications after lung cancer surgery and can result in long-term hospitalization and decreased quality of life. Risk assessments for BPF and RF in addition to mortality and major morbidities are indispensable in surgical decision-making and perioperative care. METHODS: The characteristics and operative data of 80,095 patients who had undergone lung cancer surgery were derived from the 2014 and 2015 National Clinical Database (NCD) of Japan datasets...

Frailty is a state of decreased physiologic reserve and resistance to stressors. Its prevalence increases with age and is estimated to be 26% in those aged above 85 years. As the population ages, frailty will be increasingly seen in surgical patients receiving anesthesia. Here, we evaluate the instruments which have been developed and validated for measuring frailty in surgical patients and summarize frailty tools used in 110 studies linking frailty status with adverse outcomes post-surgery. Frail older people are vulnerable to geriatric syndromes, and complications such as postoperative cognitive dysfunction and delirium are explored...

BACKGROUND: In recent years, the fallopian tubes have been found to play a critical role in the pathogenesis of ovarian cancer. Therefore, bilateral salpingectomy at the time of hysterectomy has been proposed as a preventive procedure, but with scarce scientific evidence to support the efficiency and safety. OBJECTIVE: Our primary objective was to evaluate the risk of surgical complications and menopausal symptoms performing bilateral salpingectomy in addition to benign hysterectomy...

Uterine leiomyomas are the most common benign tumors in women of reproductive age. Most of leiomyomas are asymptomatic. They are often found incidentally, and require neither monitoring nor treatment. For symptomatic women who wish to become pregnant, surgical myomectomy remains the conservative treatment of choice. It can be performed in various routes depending on the location and the number of leiomyomas and the experience of the surgeon. A minimally invasive procedure should always be the preferred option so as to improve woman satisfaction and to decrease perioperative morbidity...

Observational studies have identified surgical factors that are associated with a reduced risk of mortality after joint replacement. It is not clear whether these are causal or reflect patient selection. Data on the first primary hip (n = 424,156) and knee replacements (n = 469,989) performed for osteoarthritis in the National Joint Registry were analysed. Flexible parametric survival modelling was used to determine if risk factors for mortality in the perioperative period persisted. To explore selection bias, standardised mortality ratios were calculated for all-cause, respiratory and smoking related cancer mortality using population rates...

BACKGROUND: Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) has decreased the perioperative mortality for patients undergoing abdominal aortic aneurysm repair and has increased the rates of elective aneurysm repair in the elderly. However, Medicare will not cover abdominal aortic aneurysm screening for beneficiaries over 75 years of age. Consequently, abdominal aortic aneurysm treatment in this population depends on incidental detection. Targeted coverage for screening in this population, however, might be beneficial for a subgroup of patients...

BACKGROUND: The Pediatric Perioperative Surgical Home (PPSH) model is an integrative care model designed to provide better patient care and value by shifting focus from the patient encounter level to the overarching surgical episode of care. So far, no PPSH model has targeted a complex airway disorder. It was hypothesized that the development of a PPSH for laryngeal cleft repair would reduce the high rates of postoperative resource utilization observed in this population. METHODS: Institutional review board approval was obtained for the purpose of data collection and analysis...

OBJECTIVES: Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a common postoperative complication. Previous studies have shown that the incidence of VTE after major thoracic surgery ranges from 2.3% to 15%. However, there have been no such data from China so far. To evaluate the incidence of postoperative VTE, we conducted a single-centre, prospective cohort study. METHODS: Patients who underwent lung resections between July 2016 and March 2017 were enrolled in this study. None of the patients received any prophylaxis perioperatively...

INTRODUCTION: Loss of hepatic epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) expression is a cause for the increased perioperative risk for complications and death in patients with obesity and fatty liver undergoing liver resection. Herein, we set out to identify agents that might increase EGFR expression and improve recovery for patients with fatty liver undergoing resection. Using the diet-induced obese (DIO) mouse model of fatty liver, we examined resveratrol as a therapy to induce EGFR expression and improve outcomes following 80% partial hepatectomy (PH) in a murine model...

BACKGROUND: The decision to proceed with anesthesia and surgery has been controversial in pediatric patients with an upper respiratory tract infection. The COLDS score was proposed by Lee and August as a potential risk stratification scheme, but no validation has been performed on this scale. AIMS: The aim of this study was to evaluate the utility of the COLDS score in predicting perioperative respiratory adverse events and optimize its predictive ability. METHODS: COLDS scores, incidence of perioperative respiratory adverse events, surgical procedure type, and age were prospectively collected for 536 patients who met inclusion criteria...

Purpose: Minimally invasive esophagectomy is increasingly performed for esophageal or gastroesophageal junctional cancer, with advantages of improved perioperative outcomes in comparison with open esophagectomy. McKeown and Ivor Lewis are widely used procedures of minimally invasive esophagectomy, and there have been controversies on which one is preferred for patients with resectable esophageal or junctional cancer. Patients and methods: This review was registered at the International Prospective Register of Systematic Reviews (number CRD42017075989)...

BACKGROUND: Posterior lumbar fusions (PLF) are performed to treat various spinal deformities, degenerative diseases, fractures, infections, and tumors. The possibility of episode-based bundled payments for spine surgery necessitates analysis of the factors predicting readmissions and postoperative complications. METHODS: Patients undergoing PLF in the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program were queried via Current Procedural Terminology codes 22630, 22633, and 22612...

Accelerated discharge protocols for scoliosis surgery have recently been described in the literature. There are limited data describing the association of length of stay (LOS) during the index admission with postoperative outcomes. We sought to define the economic and clinical implications of an additional 1 day in the hospital for scoliosis surgery. The Statewide Planning and Research Cooperative System database was used to identify patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis who underwent spinal fusion from 1 October 2007 to 30 September 2012 at high-volume institutions (>20 cases/year) in the state of New York...
