Fonseca et al determine whether MR imaging in pregnant patients with suspected appendicitis improves outcomes, minimizes LOS, and lowers hospital charges. They performed a retrospective review at a university tertiary referral center of pregnant patients seen during an 11-year period and followed up through delivery.
Brown and coauthors evaluate the effect of hospital length of stay and postoperative complications on total charges in patients undergoing elective pancreaticoduodenectomy.
Halabi et al examine the use of epidural analgesia in laparoscopic colorectal surgery at the
national level and compare its outcomes with those of conventional analgesia.
Shepard et al determine the change in hospital profit due to surgical site infections.
In this retrospective analysis, the technique of locoregional anesthesia, conscious sedation, and exploration via a limited incision was used to perform minimally invasive bilateral exploration in patients who have multigland hyperplasia.
