Background The purpose of this study was to compare the long-term effectiveness of three lymphadenectomy strategies in patients with gastric cancer. We hypothesized that, compared with the traditional standard (D2) lymph node dissection strategy, the less aggressive modified standard (mD2) lymphadenectomy may offer superior effectiveness due to reduced operative morbidity and comparable long-term recurrence-free survival.

ABSTRACT Background Right ventricular failure (RVF) portends poor outcomes after left ventricular assist device (LVAD) implantation. Although numerous RVF predictive models have been developed, there are few independent comparative analyses of these risk models. Methods and Results RVF was defined as use of inotropes for >14days, inhaled pulmonary vasodilators for >48hours or unplanned right ventricular mechanical support postoperatively during the index hospitalization. Risk models were evaluat...
The missing data issue often complicates the task of estimating generalized linear models (GLMs). We describe why the pseudo-marginal Metropolis-Hastings algorithm, used in this setting, is an effective strategy for parameter estimation. This approach requires fewer assumptions, it provides joint inferences on the parameters in the likelihood, the covariate model, and the parameters of the missingness-mechanism, and there is no logical inconsistency of assuming that there are multiple posterior ...

Abstract Objective Routine surveillance imaging for patients with resected non–small cell lung cancer is standard for the detection of disease recurrence and new primary lung cancers. However, surveillance intensity varies widely in practice, and its influence on long-term outcomes is poorly understood. We hypothesized that surveillance intensity was not associated with 5-year overall survival in patients with resected stage I non–small cell lung cancer. Additionally, we examined patterns of rec...

AbstractObjective: Field data analyses often use either parametric or nonparametric means to describe the relationship between risk and various predictor variables. This study sought to evaluate a hybrid approach using semiconstrained multivariate nonlinear spline-based analysis.Methods: Data were compiled from NASS-CDS years 1998–2015, selecting belted occupants age 16+ in collisions with a principal direction of force (PDOF) from 10 o’clock to 2 o’clock. Outcome measures included the incidence...
