Background Appendiceal adenocarcinoma with signet ring cells (SCA) is associated with worse overall survival (OS), and it is unclear whether cytoreductive surgery with hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (CRS-HIPEC) should be pursued in this patient population. We assessed the prognostic implications of signet ring cells in patients with appendiceal adenocarcinoma and peritoneal carcinomatosis undergoing CRS-HIPEC.

Abstract Objective Salvage and delayed esophagectomy after chemoradiation (CRT) have been associated with increased morbidity and mortality, but recent series have shown similar outcomes compared to timely esophagectomy. We aim to evaluate outcomes for delayed and salvage esophagectomy for esophageal adenocarcinoma utilizing a large national database. Methods The National Cancer Database was queried from 2004 to 2014 for patients with clinical stage II or III esophageal adenocarcinoma who underw...

Olfactomedin-4 (OLFM4) identifies a subset of neutrophils conserved in both mouse and man, associated with worse outcomes in several inflammatory conditions. We investigated the role of OLFM4-posit...

Abstract Background Enhanced recovery protocols are associated with improved recovery. However, data on outcomes following the implementation of an enhanced recovery protocol in colorectal cancer are limited. We set out to study the postoperative outcomes, opioid use patterns, and cost impact for patients undergoing colon or rectal resection for cancer. Methods A retrospective review of all elective colorectal cancer resections from January 2015 to June 2018 at a single institution was performed...

Abstract Background The impact of recent preoperative opioid exposure on outcomes of colorectal surgery is unclear. Our aim was to evaluate the impact of preoperative opioid use on outcomes and opioid prescribing patterns after colorectal surgery. Methods We performed a retrospective review of all patients undergoing elective resection at a single institution from 2015 to 2017. Primary outcomes included in-hospital narcotic use and cost. Secondary outcomes included postoperative surgical outcome...

Background A disconnected distal pancreas (DDP) remnant is a morbid sequela of necrotizing pancreatitis. Definitive surgical management can be accomplished by either fistulojejunostomy (FJ) or distal pancreatectomy (DP). It is unclear which operative approach is superior with regard to short- and long-term outcomes.
