351Background: Pancreas cancer is expensive to treat, and the effectiveness of adjuvant chemotherapy (CT) and chemoradiation (CRT) following resection is debated. We compared both survival and healthcare costs by adjuvant therapy after curative-intent pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) for pancreas adenocarcinoma (PC). Methods: All patients with resected PC in Ontario, Canada diagnosed 2004 to 2014 were identified and linked to administrative healthcare databases. Stratified Kaplan—Meier survival curv...

Background In 2010, a multicentre randomized controlled trial reported increased postoperative complications in pancreaticoduodenectomy ( pde ) patients undergoing preoperative biliary decompression ( pbd ). We evaluated the effect of that publication on rates of pbd at the population level. Methods This retrospective observational cohort study identified patients undergoing pde for malignancy, 2005–2013, linking them with administrative health care databases covering medical services for a popu...

Initially described in the colorectal literature, enhanced recovery after surgery (ERaS) is a concept that emphasizes minimization of the physiologic disturbances produced by surgery – and focuses on interventions that minimize surgical stress – and promotes rapid recovery to presurgical levels of function. The introduction of ERaS protocols also provides a prime opportunity to additionally improve perioperative quality of care by systemizing the processes of care for patients according to the b...

Abstract Background Clinical pathways (CPW) are considered safe and effective at decreasing postoperative length of stay (LoS), but the effect on economic costs is uncertain. This study sought to elucidate the effect of a CPW on direct hospitalization costs for patients undergoing pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD). Methods A CPW for PD patients at a single Canadian institution was implemented. Outcomes included LoS, 30-day readmissions, and direct costs of hospital care. A retrospective cost minimiza...
