This multicenter study examines the preoperative risk factors for malignancy in resected mucinous cystic neoplasms and assesses outcomes of mucinous cystic neoplasm–associated adenocarcinoma.
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 reports that hospital performance on a patient satisfaction survey is associated with objective measures of surgical quality.
This retrospective cohort study demonstrates that impaired sensorium significantly increases postoperative morbidity and mortality independent of other preoperative risk factors and comorbidities following nonemergent general surgical operations.
This study reports that rigorous risk-adjusted surgical quality assessment can be performed solely with objective variables. By leveraging data already routinely collected for patient care, this approach allows for wider adoption of quality assessment systems in health care.
This observational study and intervention develop a prototype of a tool to improve the preoperative decision-making process and manage postoperative expectations among older adults undergoing high-risk surgery.
This case-control study evaluates if abstinence from smoking on the day of surgery is associated with a decreased frequency of surgical site infection in patients who smoke cigarettes.
