BACKGROUND: This study characterizes prevalence, frequency, and forms of patient-derived gender-based discrimination (GBD) experienced by resident physicians, as well as their experiences witnessing and reporting patient-derived GBD. METHODS: A web-based survey was sent to residents from 12 programs at three academic institutions. RESULTS: Response rate was 47.9% (309/645) with 55.0% of respondents identifying as women. Women were more likely than men to experience patient-derived GBD during residency (100% vs 68...

BACKGROUND: SIMPL is a workplace-based operative performance assessment tool which allows for dictated feedback (DF). To better understand the value of DF, we sought to characterize the type and quality of DF generated during SIMPL evaluations. METHODS: Thematic analysis of DF from SIMPL assessments between June 2017 and December 2018 at a single pediatric surgery fellowship program was performed. Comments were categorized as specific, encouraging or corrective...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of the study is to analyze patient outcomes following CT guided drainage of colonic diverticular abscesses and identify the factors associated with development of fistulous communication to the drain. METHODS: All patients undergoing CT guided abscess drainage, from 2009 to 2017, were included in this single institutional study. Clinical and demographic variables associated with development of colonic fistula were investigated. RESULTS: One-hundred-and-five patients (55% female), mean abscess size and BMI of 6...

INTRODUCTION: We hypothesized that trauma providers are reticent to consider palliative measures in acute trauma care. METHODS: An electronic survey based on four patient scenarios with identical vital signs and serious blunt injuries, but differing ages and frailty scores was sent to WTA and EAST members. RESULTS: 509 (24%) providers completed the survey. Providers supported early transition to comfort care in 85% old-frail, 53% old-fit, 77% young-frail, and 30% young-fit patients...

BACKGROUND: Base Deficit (BD) and lactate have been used as indicators of shock and resuscitation. This study was done to evaluate the utility of BD and lactate in identifying shock and resuscitative needs in trauma patients. METHODS: A prospective observational study was performed from 3/2014-12/2018. Data included demographics, admission systolic BP, ISS, BD, lactate, blood transfusion, and outcomes. BD and lactate were modeled continuously and categorically and compared...

BACKGROUND: Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a debilitating skin condition; in severe forms it requires excision and skin grafting for cure. This is commonly performed as a multi-stage procedure; we explored single-stage operation as a more efficient alternative. METHODS: Retrospective review 2007-2018 evaluating outcomes of patients undergoing single-stage surgery. RESULTS: 139 one-stage procedures were performed: 35 excision and primary closure, 104 split-thickness skin grafting (STSG)...

This article is a textual record of the Presidential Address from the Association of Women Surgeons Annual Conference in 2020. This year (2020) has been a tumultuous year exposing inequities in Surgery and health care. Even during these challenging times, the ability to sculpt our future rests in our hands. We will do this by returning to our values based on resilience, by advocating for equity, by speaking up for our future colleagues and by changing the perception of who may be a surgeon. Progress will require a change in the status quo so that a surgeon is defined not be her phenotype but by her strong mind, caring heart and skillful hands...

INTRODUCTION: The aim of this study is to examine the outcomes of outpatient thyroidectomy per the American Thyroid Association (ATA) statement on this procedure using the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Project (NSQIP) database. METHODS: A retrospective study using NSQIP database (2016 2017) comparing outpatient (OP) and inpatient (IP) thyroidectomies based on the ATA statement. RESULTS: There were 382 inpatient and 628 outpatient thyroidectomies...

BACKGROUND: The use of neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) for pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) has increased in recent years. Limited data exists on the impact of NAC on biliary microbiome. METHODS: Patients who underwent pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) for PDAC between 2014 and 2017 were reviewed. Patients were stratified into two groups based on their NAC status for comparison. RESULTS: Of 168 patients included, 63 (37.5%) received NAC. Patients who received NAC exhibited significantly increased growth of Gram-negative anaerobic bacteria (p = 0...

BACKGROUND: Multivisceral resection may be the exclusive radical procedure for cT4b gastric cancer patients. However, most surgeons refuse to select surgery because of the theoretical higher mortality, morbidity and poorer prognosis. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed cT4b gastric cancer patients who underwent surgery from January 1,1997 to December 31,2018. The primary endpoint was overall survival. Short-term results and prognostic values of clinical and pathologic factors were also analyzed...

BACKGROUND: Emergency Department Thoracotomy (EDRT) after traumatic Cardio-pulmonary Arrest (CPR) can be used to salvage select critically injured patients. Indications of this surgical procedure are widely debated and changed during last decades. We provide the available literature about EDRT in the effort to provide a comprehensive synthesis about the procedure, likelihood of success and patient's outcome in the different clinical setting, accepted indications and technical details adopted during the procedure for different trauma injuries...
