METHODS: A retrospective cohort study was performed using the National Trauma Data Bank (NTDB) from years 2011 to 2013. Female patients age 16 years and older with internal gynecologic injuries were identified based on diagnosis codes. Demographics, associated diagn...

Abstract: Use of anticoagulants as a means to prevent both venous and arterial thromboembolism and also as a means to treat such events when they do occur is ubiquitous in the intensive care unit (ICU). It is therefore vital that the intensivist be familiar with the various anticoagulants, their mechanisms and duration of action, their pharmacokinetic profile in patients with organ dysfunction, and the availability (or lack thereof) of specific reversal agents. Use of direct oral anticoagulants ...

Background The incidence and severity of civilian public mass shooting (CPMS) events continue to rise. Understanding the wounding pattern and incidence of potentially preventable death (PPD) after CPMS is key to updating prehospital response strategy. Methods A retrospective study of autopsy reports after CPMS events identified via the Federal Bureau of Investigation CPMS database from December 1999 to December 31, 2017 was performed. Sites of injury, fatal injury, and incidence of PPD were dete...

Abstract Background To identify trends in total and subtotal gastrectomy for middle and distal third gastric adenocarcinoma in the U.S. Methods NCDB was queried for patients with stage 0-III middle or distal gastric adenocarcinoma treated with total or subtotal gastrectomy. Statistical analysis including cox proportional hazards model was performed to examine overall survival by stage. Results 1,628 (85%) underwent subtotal gastrectomy and 283 (15%) underwent total. 1113 patients (58%) had dista...

Introduction A soft pancreas has been associated with an increased risk of post-operative pancreatic fistula formation. Few studies have evaluated the effect of anastomotic technique (duct to mucosa vs invagination) on fistula formation. This study aims to compare the effect of anastomotic technique on fistula formation among patients with a soft pancreas in a large multiinstitutional database.

ABSTRACT Background Bariatric surgery is an effective and durable treatment for obesity. However, the number of patients that progress to bariatric surgery after initial evaluation remains low. Objectives The purpose of this study is to identify factors influencing a qualified patient's successful progression to surgery in a U.S. metropolitan area. Setting Academic, University Hospital. Methods A single-institution retrospective chart review was performed from 2003-2016. Patient demographics and...

Abstract Background Venous thromboembolism, including pulmonary embolism (PE) and deep venous thrombosis, is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality after bariatric surgery. Inferior vena cava filters (IVCFs) have been used as a method to reduce the incidence of clinically significant PEs after bariatric surgery. Objectives To compare the incidence of postoperative PEs in patients with IVCFs with those in patients without IVCFs at the time of bariatric surgery. Setting American College of Sur...
