: MINI: This study examines how reductions in postoperative complications and improvements in failure to rescue have contributed to improvements in surgical mortality over the past decade. Improvements in rescue explained the majority of observed improvements in surgical mortality, whereas decreased complication rates explained a small proportion of this improvement. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate how changes in complication and failure to rescue rates influence hospitals' postoperative mortality rates....

: MINI: In this multicenter, prospective cohort study we conducted a longitudinal assessment of a bariatric-specific, patient-reported outcome instrument. We assessed psychological well-being and satisfaction with body image before and after bariatric surgery, and its association with clinical outcomes. OBJECTIVE: We sought to use a bariatric-tailored patient-reported outcome (PRO) instrument to assess psychological well-being and satisfaction with body image before and after bariatric surgery, ...

Abstract Background Increased attention to shared decision making is particularly important in bariatric surgery. It is unclear whether the large shift toward sleeve gastrectomy is evidence of good alignment between patient and surgeon preferences. Objective To identify surgeon preferences for risks, benefits, and other attributes of treatment options available for bariatric surgery and to compare results to patient preferences. Methods A discrete choice experiment of weight loss procedures. Eac...

The most common cause of mortality following bariatric surgery is venous thromboembolism. Our study aimed to (1) determine the practice patterns of venous thromboembolism (VTE) chemoprophylaxis among bariatric surgeons participating in a large statewide quality collaborative and (2) compare the results of surgeon self-reported chemoprophylaxis practices to actual practices from abstracted chart data. We administered a 13-question survey to 66 surgeons across a statewide collaborative aimed at re...
