Importance  Establishing strategies to minimize the burden of burnout and poor quality of life (QOL) on surgeons relies on a thorough understanding of QOL and burnout among the various surgical specialties.

Objectives  To systematically review the literature across multiple surgical specialties and provide a comprehensive understanding ...

Importance  Widespread implementation of laparoscopic hemihepatectomy is currently limited by its technical difficulty, paucity of training opportunities, and perceived long and harmful learning curve. Studies confirming the possibility of a short and safe learning curve for laparoscopic hemihepatectomy could potentially benefit the further implementation of the technique....

Importance  Trauma patients are at high risk for developing venous thromboembolism (VTE). The VTE rate when enoxaparin sodium is dosed by anti–factor Xa (anti-Xa) trough level is not well described.

Objective  To determine whether targeting a prophylactic anti-Xa trough level by adjusting the enoxaparin dose would ...

Importance  Mentorship is considered a key element for career satisfaction and retention in academic surgery. Stakeholders of an effective mentorship program should include the mentor, the mentee, the department, and the institution.

Objective  The objective of this study was to characterize the status of mentorship programs ...

Invited Commentary 
Susannah M. Cheek, MD; David A. Geller, MD

Laparoscopic liver resection (LLR) has been growing in number and complexity, with nearly 10 000 cases published worldwide.1,2 Recent studies have shown that laparoscopic major hepatectomy can be safely accomplished by high-volume centers experienced in LLR.3 However, at the Second International Laparoscopic Liver Consensus Conference...

Invited Commentary 
Gerard M. Doherty, MD

What is the purpose of an academic department of surgery? The nearly automatic answer that departments support the missions of clinical care, research, and education does not bear close scrutiny in 2016. Clinically, many of us are so focused that we have more in common with our nonsurgical ...

Invited Commentary 
Kristin Cook, MD; Massimo Napolitano, MD; Frank T. Padberg Jr, MD

Venous thromboembolism (VTE) represents a significant public health concern and is the leading cause of preventable deaths in hospitalized patients. The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality has identified this topic as a top 10 public safety concern to be addressed.1 As with other VTE investigations, lower ...

Madhukar S. Patel, MD, MBA, ScM; Elliot L. Chaikof, MD, PhD

Importance  Early landmark trials excluding dialysis patients showed carotid endarterectomy (CEA) decreased stroke risk compared with medical management. Dialysis dependence has been associated with poor outcomes after CEA in small studies, but, to our knowledge, there are no large studies evaluating outcomes of CEA in this patient ...

Invited Commentary: High-Risk Patients in the Evolving Landscape of Carotid Revascularization; Lily E. Johnston, MD, MPH; Gilbert R. Upchurch Jr, MD

The US Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 established the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI), a national nonprofit to fund patient-centered comparative effectiveness research and extend “the concept of patient-centeredness from health care delivery to health care research.”1(p1513) As defined by PCORI, patient-centered outcomes ...

Invited Commentary 
Lily E. Johnston, MD, MPH; Gilbert R. Upchurch Jr, MD

In an era where medical management has improved dramatically and new technology in the form of carotid stents is available for poor operative candidates, it is reasonable to continually reevaluate the role of traditional open revascularization for both symptomatic and asymptomatic carotid disease. Indeed, the existence of CREST-2 ...

To the Editor In their Viewpoint,1 Ladner and Mehrotra criticize the methods used to develop a redistricting solution to geographic inequity in the allocation of deceased donor livers for transplant, and the ability of clinicians on the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network (OPTN) Liver Committee to evaluate ...

Comment & Response
