INTRODUCTION: Natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) uses natural orifices to access the cavities of the human body to perform surgical interventions. NOTES limits the magnitude of surgical trauma and potentially reduces postoperative pain. Our group published a protocol on a randomised study comparing transvaginal NOTES (vNOTES) versus laparoscopy for hysterectomy (HALON). We simultaneously designed a similar randomised controlled trial (RCT) comparing vNOTES with laparoscopy for adnexectomy...

BACKGROUND: Orthopedic trauma injury impacts nearly 2.8 million people each year. Despite surgical improvements and excellent survivorship rates, many patients experience poor quality of life (QOL) outcomes years later. Psychological distress commonly occurs after injury. Distressed patients more frequently experience rehospitalizations, pain medication dependence, and low QOL. This study was developed to test whether an integrative care approach (IntCare; ten-step program of emotional support, education, customized resources, and medical care) was superior to usual care (UsCare)...

Background: The last two decades have seen significant changes in surgical management of breast cancer. The offer of immediate breast reconstruction (IBR) following mastectomy is currently standard practice. Skin sparing and nipple sparing mastectomy with implant-based IBR have emerged as oncologically safe treatment options. Prepectoral implant placement and complete coverage of implant with acellular dermal matrix (ADM) eliminates the need to detach the muscle from underlying chest wall in contrast to the subpectoral technique...

Healthcare systems are receiving increasing pressures from payers, such as the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS), to reduce the costs associated with procedures, and with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, high costs are addressed through pay-for-performance programs. Thus, multiple areas of total knee arthroplasty (TKA) surgery are under scrutiny, including surgical times, material costs, and the costs of associated complications and readmissions. Suture type has been determined to be a factor that may influence closure times, as well as direct material costs...

Background: Sarcopenia has been associated with increased adverse outcomes after major abdominal surgery. Sarcopenia defined as decreased muscle volume or increased fatty infiltration may be a proxy for frailty. In conjunction with other preoperative clinical risk factors, radiographic measures of sarcopenia using both muscle size and density may enhance prediction of outcomes after pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) for malignancy. Methods: Preoperative computed tomography (CT) scans of patients undergoing PD for malignancy were analyzed from a prospective pancreatic surgery database...

Osteonecrosis of the femoral head (ONFH) is a prevalent complication of sickle cell disease (SCD) that has not been well described in population-based cohort studies. Using California's Office of Statewide Planning and Development discharge databases (1991-2013), we estimated the cumulative incidence of ONFH after accounting for the competing risk of death and used a multivariable Cox proportional hazards regression to identify factors associated with ONFH diagnosis. We also calculated rates of readmissions to the hospital or emergency department within 30 to 90 days of hip replacement surgery...

BACKGROUND: The demand for conversion of prior hip surgery to total hip arthroplasty (conversion THA) is likely to increase as a function of increasing US hip fracture burden in addition to its application in managing other conditions. Thus, outcome analysis is warranted to better inform value-based reimbursement schemes in the era of bundled payments. METHODS: Via Current Procedural Terminology codes, the National Surgical Quality Improvement Project data files were queried for all patients who underwent primary THA and conversion of previous hip surgery to THA from 2005 to 2014...

BACKGROUND: Acute appendicitis is the most common emergent surgical procedure performed among children in the US, with an incidence exceeding 80,000 cases per year. Appendectomies are often performed by both pediatric surgeons and adult general/trauma acute care surgeons (TACS surgeons). We hypothesized that children undergoing appendectomy for acute appendicitis have equivalent outcomes whether a pediatric surgeon or a TACS surgeon performs the operation. METHODS: A retrospective chart review was performed for patients 6-18 years of age, who underwent appendectomy at either a regional children's hospital (CHCO, n=241) or an urban safety net hospital (n=347) between July 2010 and June 2015...
