Abstract Background The best achievable short-term outcomes after liver surgery have not been identified. Several factors may influence the post-operative course of patients undergoing hepatectomy increasing the risk of post-operative complications. We sought to identify risk-adjusted benchmark values [BMV] for liver surgery. Methods The National Surgery Quality Improvement Program (NSQIP) database was used to develop Bayesian models to estimate risk-adjusted BMVs for overall and liver related (...

Background Postoperative pancreatic fistula (POPF) remains a major cause of morbidity following pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD). We sought to develop and validate a risk score system that utilized preoperative computed tomography (CT) measurements, laboratory values, and intraoperative pancreatic texture to estimate risk of developing POPF after PD.

Abstract Background Administration of blood products may be associated with increased morbidity and perioperative mortality in surgical patients. Methods Patients aged 18 + who underwent gastrointestinal surgery at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center 9/10/2015-5/9/2018 were identified. Multivariable logistic regression models were used to evaluate impact of blood product use on survival and complications, as well as to identify factors associated with receipt of transfusions. Results...

Abstract Background Advances in communication technology have enabled new methods of delivering test results to cancer survivors. We sought to determine patient preferences regarding the use of newer technology in delivering test results during cancer surveillance. Methods A single institutional, cross-sectional analysis of the preferences of adult cancer survivors regarding the means (secure digital communication versus phone call or office visit) to receive surveillance test results was undert...

Introduction The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has identified readmission as an important quality metric. With an increased emphasis on regionalization of complex hepato-pancreato-biliary (HPB) surgery to high-volume centers, care of readmitted HPB patients may be fragmented if readmission occurs at a non-index hospital. We sought to define the proportion of HPB readmissions, as well as evaluate outcomes, that occur at an index versus non-index hospitals and to identify factors...

Abstract Background The relationship of expenditures related to rescuing patients from complications and hospital quality has not been well characterized. We sought to examine the relationship between payments for treating post-operative complications after liver and pancreas surgery and hospital quality. Methods A retrospective cohort study of patients who underwent hepatopancreatic surgery was performed using claims data from 2013 to 2015 in the Medicare Provider Analysis and Review (MEDPAR) d...

Background The effect of various hospital characteristics on failure to rescue (FTR) after liver surgery has not been well examined. We sought to examine the relationship between hospital characteristics and FTR after liver surgery.

Background The impact of time to readmission (TTR) on post-discharge mortality has not been well examined. We sought to define the impact of TTR on postoperative mortality after liver or pancreas surgery.

Introduction Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) has become standard of care for many gastrointestinal surgical procedures. Despite possible clinical benefits, MIS may be underutilized in some populations. The aim of this study was to access the utilization of MIS among Medicare patients undergoing hepatopancreatic procedures and define clinical outcomes, as well as costs, of minimally invasive techniques compared with the conventional open approach.
