BACKGROUND: Congenital heart defects (CHDs) are the most common birth defects in the United States, and the population of individuals living with CHDs is growing. Though CHD prevalence in infancy has been well characterized, better prevalence estimates among children and adolescents in the United States are still needed. METHODS: We used capture-recapture methods to estimate CHD prevalence among adolescents residing in 11 New York counties. The three data sources used for analysis included Statewide Planning and Research Cooperative System (SPARCS) hospital inpatient records, SPARCS outpatient records, and medical records provided by seven pediatric congenital cardiac clinics from 2008 to 2010...

INTRODUCTION: During laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC), common bile duct (CBD) visualization either directly or with cholangiography (IOC) is less routine. Cholangiography can be used to identify and possibly prevent bile duct injury (BDI), which is a dreaded complication of cholecystectomy. The purpose of our study was to evaluate the trend of IOC/CBD exploration and BDI during LC for benign disease. METHODS: A state-wide database (SPARCS) was used to identify all LC for benign biliary non-obstructive and obstructive disease between 2000 and 2014 in the state of New York...
