This cohort study examines whether a blunt or penetrating mechanism of injury alters the risk of venous thromboembolism.
This study describes the association of patient- and hospital-level factors on in-hospital mortality after elective abdominal aortic aneurysm repair.
This study assesses the hierarchy and interaction of factors associated with the risk for liver decompensation in patients undergoing liver resection for hepatocellular carcinoma.
This cohort study investigates the ability of the original and modified Estimation of Physiologic Ability and Surgical Stress (E-PASS) risk models to discriminate mortality risk after resection for suspected perihilar cholangiocarcinoma.
This study reports on the development and validation of a preoperative scale for predicting readmission rates for patients following total hip replacement.
This cohort study evaluates how the age-related risk of discharge to postacute care facilities after major abdominal surgery is affected by preoperative functional status and postoperative complications.
This cohort study evaluates whether the Model for End-Stage Liver Disease (MELD) score is associated with mortality in emergency general surgery patients.
This Viewpoint describes a novel approach to measuring quality in risk-adjusted surgical outcomes for hospital-, regional-, and global-level benchmarking.
This matched-cohort study tests whether hospitals with better nursing work environments display better value than those with worse nursing environments and aims to determine patient risk groups associated with the greatest value.
This cohort study uses Veterans Health Administration data to compare postoperative mortality at 30, 90, and 180 days and at 1 year to determine if 30-day mortality is a valid quality metric.
This cohort study uses data on patients who underwent liver resection for hepatitis B virus–related hepatocellular carcinoma to develop a nomogram for preoperative estimation of microvascular invasion.
This observational study analyzes and reports Clostridium difficile infection rates, risk factors, and associations with postoperative outcomes in surgery programs of the Veterans Health Administration.
Using a cohort of patients at 13 major US institutions, this study defines clinicopathological variables associated with recurrence-free and overall survival after adrenocortical carcinoma resection and proposes nomograms for individual risk prediction.
This population-based, longitudinal cohort study of patients undergoing bariatric surgery reported an increased risk of self-harm emergencies after bariatric surgery.
This review of 536 423 pediatric patients 0 to 17 years old using the National Trauma Data Bank from 2007 to 2012 develops a risk prediction calculator for venous thromboembolism in children admitted to the hospital after traumatic injury.
This Viewpoint discusses the expansion of value-based delivery, shifting from volume-based fee-for-service to fee-for-value models in health care.
