Abstract Introduction and Objectives Liver transplantation candidates are among the most comorbid patients awaiting lifesaving intervention. Health related quality of life (HRQOL) measured by instruments that incorporate dynamic computerized adaptive testing, could improve their assessment. We aimed to determine the feasibility of administration of the Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS-CAT) in liver transplant candidates. Materials and methods Liver transplantation...

A retrospective cohort study was performed of the Hospital-to-Home (H2H) program, a rapid clinic follow-up program for patients with recent heart failure (HF) admissions at the University of Virginia Health System. There were 6761 hospitalizations among 4685 patients (age 67.5 ± 14.2 years, 43.9% female), and 759 had H2H follow-up. Thirty day mortality after the initial HF hospitalization was lower in H2H patients (1.84% vs 3.13%; P = .049), and this difference remained significant after adjustm...

Purpose:Accurate comorbidity measurement is critical for cancer research. We evaluated comorbidity assessment in the National Cancer Database (NCDB), which uses a code-based Charlson-Deyo Comorbidity Index (CCI), and compared its prognostic performance with a chart-based CCI and individual comorbidities in a national sample of patients with breast, colorectal, or lung cancer.Patients and Methods:Through an NCDB Special Study, cancer registrars re-abstracted perioperative comorbidities for 11,243...

Background Despite technical advances, bile leak remains a significant complication after hepatectomy. The current study uses a targeted multi-institutional dataset to characterize perioperative factors that are associated with bile leakage after hepatectomy to better understand the impact of bile leak on morbidity and mortality.

Purpose The Appalachian region presents disproportionately high rates of chronic disease compared to the rest of the United States. Early diagnosis of diabetes through screening is an important step in reducing diabetes complications. This study examines disparities in the use of diabetes screening in Appalachia. Methods We analyzed 2009 and 2010 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System data for 96,111 adults aged ≥45 years from 11 Appalachian states. Based on economic status, Appalachian coun...

Aim Geographic disparities persist in the U.S. despite locoregional organ sharing policies. The impact of national organ sharing policies on waiting-list mortality on a regional basis remains unknown. Methods Data on all adult liver transplants between February 1, 2002 and March 31, 2015 were obtained from UNOS/OPTN. Multivariable Cox proportional hazards models were constructed in a time-to-event analysis to estimate waiting-list mortality for the pre- and post-Share35 eras. Results 134,247 pat...

Background The primary objective was to provide proof of concept of conducting thoracic surgical simulation in a low-middle income country. Secondary objectives were to accelerate general thoracic surgery skills acquisition by general surgery residents and sustain simulation surgery teaching through a website, simulation models, and teaching of local faculty. Methods Five training models were created for use in a low-middle income country setting and implemented during on-site courses with Rwand...
