BACKGROUND: Existing postoperative pancreatic fistula risk scores rely on intraoperative parameters, which limits their value in the preoperative setting. A preoperative predictive model to stratify the risk of developing postoperative pancreatic fistula before pancreatoduodenectomy was built and externally validated. METHODS: A regression risk-tree model for preoperative postoperative pancreatic fistula risk stratification was developed in the Verona University Hospital training cohort using preoperative variables and then tested prospectively in a validation cohort of patients who underwent pancreatoduodenectomy at San Raffaele Hospital of Milan...

BACKGROUND: Radiofrequency ablation is an alternative strategy for the management of benign thyroid conditions. We analyzed the proportion of patients who underwent thyroid surgery for benign conditions who would be potentially eligible for radiofrequency ablation. METHODS: We identified patients who underwent thyroid surgery from 2015 to 2019 at the study institution for Bethesda II cytopathology or toxic adenoma. Patients were considered potentially eligible for radiofrequency ablation if they had a dominant nodule >2 cm with or without compression symptoms, a dominant nodule <2 cm with compression symptoms, or a toxic adenoma...

Patryk Kambakamba, Emir Hoti, Sinead Cremen, Felix Braun, Thomas Becker, Michael Linecker
Only a few decades ago, the opinion that colorectal liver metastases were a palliative diagnosis changed. In fact, previously, the prevailing view was strongly resistant against resecting colorectal liver metastases. Constant technical improvement of liver surgery and, much later, effective chemotherapy allowed for a successful wider application of surgery. The clinical use of portal vein embolization was the starting signal of regenerative liver surgery, where insufficient liver volume can be expanded to an extent where safe resection is possible...

BACKGROUND: Vertical sleeve gastrectomy is one of the most common bariatric procedures worldwide, but the impact of social determinants of health on postoperative outcomes for this procedure has not been well characterized. The objective of this study was to analyze the impact that social determinants of health have on postoperative outcomes after vertical sleeve gastrectomy. METHOD: This was a population-based study using the MARINER-15 database, an all-payer claims database...

BACKGROUND: Early evaluation of the Affordable Care Act's Medicaid expansion demonstrated persistent disparities among Medicaid beneficiaries in use of high-volume hospitals for pancreatic surgery. Longer-term effects of expansion remain unknown. This study evaluated the impact of expansion on the use of high-volume hospitals for pancreatic surgery among Medicaid and uninsured patients. METHODS: State inpatient databases (2012-2017), the American Hospital Association Annual Survey Database, and the Area Resource File from the Health Resources and Services Administration, were used to examine 8,264 non-elderly adults who underwent pancreatic surgery in nine expansion and two non-expansion states...

BACKGROUND: Pretransplant malignancy is associated with decreased patient and graft survival. Current US guidelines recommend a 2- to 5-year, tumor-free waiting period before transplantation. No large studies have examined the specific, modern day risk of pretransplant thyroid malignancy on patient and graft survival after renal transplant. METHODS: The United Network for Organ Sharing database was queried for all adult isolated renal transplant recipients between 2003 and 2019...

BACKGROUND: Preoperative parathyroid imaging guides surgeons during parathyroidectomy. This study evaluates the clinical impact of 18 F-fluorocholine positron emission tomography for preoperative parathyroid localization on patients with primary hyperparathyroidism. METHODS: Patients with primary hyperparathyroidism and indications for parathyroidectomy had simultaneous 18 F-fluorocholine positron emission tomography imaging/magnetic resonance imaging. In patients who underwent subsequent parathyroidectomy, cure was based on lab values at least 6 months after surgery...

Mastering the art of grant writing is one of the most essential skills to obtaining research funding. Given the importance of pursuing high-quality surgical research and supporting the academic goals of surgeon-scientists, ensuring that surgeons have the necessary skills to write effective and successful grants is of paramount importance. In this article, we present 10 strategies for composing a strong research grant application. These strategies apply to federal or nongovernmental funding agencies and are broadly relevant to basic, translational, and clinical investigators...

BACKGROUND: Although patients with opioid use disorder have been shown to be more susceptible to traumatic injury, the impact of opioid use disorder after trauma-related admission remains poorly characterized. The present nationally representative study evaluated the association of opioid use disorder on clinical outcomes after traumatic injury warranting operative intervention. METHODS: The 2010 to 2018 Nationwide Readmissions Database was used to identify adult trauma victims who underwent major operative procedures...

BACKGROUND: Surgeons are traditionally categorized as working either in academic or private/community practice, but some transition between the two environments. Here, we profile current academic cardiothoracic surgeons who began their attending careers in private or community practice. We hypothesized that research activity may distinguish cardiothoracic surgeons who started in non-academic versus academic practice. METHODS: Publicly available data regarding professional history and research productivity were collected for 992 academic cardiothoracic surgeons on faculty at the 77 cardiothoracic surgery training programs in the United States in 2018...

BACKGROUND: Medullary thyroid cancer is a neuroendocrine malignancy that can occur sporadically or as the result of genomic rearranged during transfection mutations. Medullary thyroid cancer has a higher rate of metastasis than well-differentiated thyroid cancer. Lateral neck dissection is often performed, and its prophylactic use is controversial. METHODS: Single-center, retrospective review (2000-2017) of patients undergoing primary surgical treatment for medullary thyroid cancer who had negative lateral neck imaging preoperatively...
