INTRODUCTION: Existing Acute Care Surgery (ACS) fellowships are positioned to develop well-trained surgeons with specific skills to facilitate improvements in care delivery in Global ACS. Many resident and fellowship programs offer clinical electives that expose trainees to operative experiences, exposing trainees to the needs in resource-challenged settings. However, most lack a focus on long-term development and research designed to enhance the country's local skills, capability, and capacity...

: During the first half of the 20th century interest in spinal deformity grew due to common conditions of that era including polio and tuberculosis. This article will discuss Louis Arnold Goldstein, a visionary leader in spinal deformity surgery from Rochester, New York and one of the founders of the Scoliosis Research Society. Louis A. Goldstein was a talented surgeon, administrator and clinician scientist. He also started a spine surgery fellowship program that still bears his name and that continues to train complex spine surgeons...

In foot and ankle patients, the use of Kirschner wires is common, and the population in the typical foot and ankle practice has higher rates of comorbidities associated with infection. This study assessed national trends regarding the use of postoperative prophylactic antibiotic therapy in patients undergoing foot and ankle surgery treated with percutaneous Kirschner wires. Attending physicians at foot and ankle fellowships were mailed a questionnaire that included 3 clinical vignettes containing questions on the use of postoperative antibiotics in patients treated with percutaneous Kirschner wires...

OBJECTIVE: Owing to the encouraging data on fellowship training in robotic pyeloplasty and the documented benefits of robotic pyeloplasty, the aim of this study was to test the feasibility of starting up pediatric urological robotic surgery in a center with a limited case volume. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The operative parameters and clinical outcome of the first 25 robotic pyeloplasties performed were compared to data on open and laparoscopic procedures from the previous 5 year period...

BACKGROUND: The young athletic population makes up the largest portion of shoulder instability and, when treated nonoperatively, has a recurrent dislocation rate as high as 71%. It is unknown how the outcomes of those who have a recurrent dislocation are affected versus those who have a stabilization procedure after a first-time dislocation. PURPOSE: To report the postoperative outcomes of patients with first-time dislocations versus patients with recurrent dislocations before surgery...

BACKGROUND: Underrepresentation of highly ranked women in academic surgery is recognized. OBJECTIVE: Our objective was to examine whether sex differences exist in faculty representation, academic rank, and publication productivity among colorectal faculty in fellowship programs. DESIGN: American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons fellowship program faculty were identified. Bibliometric data were obtained for each faculty member, including Hirsch index, the Hirsch index divided by research career duration, and number of publications...

BACKGROUND: Informed consent is a process that necessitates time and effort. Underlying this investment is the belief that informing patients about the surgery promotes patient satisfaction with the decision for surgery and potentially satisfaction more broadly. OBJECTIVE: The objective of the study was to investigate the extent to which preoperative satisfaction with a decision to pursue surgery is associated with understanding after an informed consent discussion...

BACKGROUND: The H-index is increasingly being used as a measure of academic productivity and has been applied to various surgical disciplines. Here the authors calculate the H-index of craniofacial surgery fellowship faculty in North America in order to determine its utility for academic productivity among craniofacial surgeons. METHODS: A list of fellowship programs was obtained from the website of the American Society of Craniofacial Surgery. Faculty demographics and institution characteristics were obtained from official program websites and the H-index was calculated using Scopus (Elsevier, USA)...

BACKGROUND: Pediatric surgery fellowship applicants and programs coordinate over 20 interviews per cycle. We hypothesized that replacing e-mail and phone communication with a computerized-scheduling program (CSP) could benefit both parties. METHODS: We used a CSP to schedule 2016 interviews. Time to schedule and e-mail communication per applicant was compared to 2015, when traditional scheduling was used. Additionally, 2016 interviewees were surveyed about their experience with the CSP vs...

INTRODUCTION: The decision between partial nephrectomy (PN) and radical nephrectomy (RN) may be influenced by training, practice type, or location. We sought to evaluate current opinions about the optimal management of 4-10 cm renal-cell carcinoma (RCC). MATERIALS AND METHODS: A survey was emailed to ∼2500 Endourologic Society and Society of Urologic Oncology members regarding training, practice setting, and interest in clinical trials in addition to questions about four patient scenarios...

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether supplementary tibial graft fixation with a staple is routinely necessary for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstructions. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed a series of consecutive patients who underwent ACL reconstruction at our institution from April 2012 to July 2013. Patients who fulfilled the inclusion and exclusion criteria were divided into two groups, of which one with tibial fixation of the graft with a biointerference screw alone (biointerference screw group) and the other with tibial fixation of the graft with a biointerference screw and supplementary extra tunnel staple fixation (biointerference screw and staple group)...

BACKGROUND: Both the general and pediatric surgical literature have evidenced an inverse relationship between surgical case volume and complications. This study seeks to ascertain the relationship between case volume and fistula rates in cleft palate patients. We also seek to determine if craniofacial fellowship training impacts fistula rates. METHODS: Charts were reviewed at a multidisciplinary cleft center in San Diego, CA. We performed chart review on 207 nonsyndromic patients with cleft lip and palate who had surgery at our institution from 1988 to 2010...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Little is known regarding the use of various techniques for sling tensioning. Our objective was to determine which techniques are most commonly used by surgeons and surgeons' views on sling tensioning.

BACKGROUND : Little is known about the factors that influence medical student selection of obstetrics and gynecology (ob-gyn) residency programs. OBJECTIVE : We assessed the factors influencing residency program selection by fourth-year medical students pursuing ob-gyn training.

OBJECTIVE: Quantitative metrics for comparing fellowship programs are lacking in orthopedic surgery. The purpose of this work was to determine the publication citation frequency at shoulder and elbow fellowships in the United States and to identify factors associated with increased productivity. METHODS: American shoulder and elbow fellowship program faculty members in 2015 were identified. Research productivity metrics such as academic career duration, total publications, publications between 2010 and 2014 and total citations were recorded for each faculty member...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to characterize distinguishing features among gynecology, urology, and combined female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery (FPMRS) fellowship programs and practices. METHODS: A 32-item Web-based survey was sent to fellowship directors of FPMRS programs accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. The survey assessed the structure of the fellowship, as well as the degree to which gynecology and urology are integrated into the fellowship training...
