Abstract Background A cost analyses of complications following pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) was performed in a high volume hepato-biliary-pancreatic service. We hypothesised that costs are increased with both severity and number of complications; we investigated the relationship between complications and specific cost centres. Methods 100 patients from 2011 to 2016 were included. Data relating to their perioperative course were collected. Complications were documented by the Clavien–Dindo classi...

AbstractIntroduction: We aimed to describe the total costs of illness for IBD patients and compare the costs of patients with active disease to those with inactive disease.Materials and methods: Resource use for IBD management was itemized for attributable costs (AUD) among all IBD patients over a 12-month period at an Australian hospital.Results: One hundred and eighty-three patients were included (87 ulcerative colitis (UC); 93 Crohn’s disease (CD); three IBD-unclassified). The median (IQR) an...

Background and aims: The indication for endoscopy to investigate anemia of causes other than iron deficiency is not clear. Increasing numbers of endoscopic procedures for anemia raises concerns about costs to the health system, waiting times, and patient safety. The primary aim of this study was to determine the diagnostic yield of endoscopy in patients referred to undergo investigation for anemia. Secondary aims were to identify additional factors enabling the risk stratification of those likel...
