Abstract Background Thrombin-based formulations have been used for topical hemostasis in surgery for decades. However, the number of randomized clinical trials comparing bovine vs. human thrombin is limited. Study Design A randomized, double-blind, non-inferiority phase-II study evaluated the hemostatic efficacy and safety of plasma-derived Topical Thrombin (Human) Grifols (TTH-Grifols) vs. Bovine Thrombin JMI® (BT-JMI) (2:1 ratio) in vascular, hepatic, soft tissue, and spinal surgeries. The pri...

Abstract Background Postoperative pulmonary complications (PPCs) cause high morbidity and mortality. Targeted treatment for patients at risk for PPCs may improve outcomes. This multicenter prospective trial examined the impact of oscillation and lung expansion (OLE) therapy, using continuous high-frequency oscillation and continuous positive expiratory pressure on PPCs in high-risk patients. Methods In Stage I, CPT and ICD codes were queried for patients undergoing thoracic, upper abdominal, or ...

Background Risk prediction is important during combat operations because resources are limited and triage decisions must be rapid and accurate. We evaluated two point-of-care urinary biomarker tests for risk prediction in combat casualties. Study Design Observational cohort study of critically injured military personnel admitted to Craig Joint Theater Hospital in Afghanistan from October 2012 to December 2013. We collected urine within 3 hours of admission and measured urinary biomarkers with Ne...

Abstract Background Given the propensity for lung metastases (LM), NCCN guidelines recommend lung surveillance (LS) with either CXR or CT in high-grade soft tissue sarcoma (HG-STS). Considering survival, diagnostic sensitivity and cost, the optimal modality is unknown. Methods The US Sarcoma Collaborative database (2000-2016) was reviewed for patients who underwent resection of a primary HG-STS. Primary outcome was overall survival (OS). Cost analysis was performed. Results Among 909pts, 83% had...

Abstract Background Surgical site infections (SSI) represent a significant preventable source of morbidity, mortality and cost. Prophylactic antibiotics have been shown to decrease SSI rates, and β-lactam antibiotics are recommended by national guidelines. It is currently unclear whether recommended β-lactam and recommended non-β-lactam antibiotic regimens are equivalent with respect to SSI risk reduction in colectomy patients. Study Design Retrospective cohort study of SSI rates between prophyl...

Abstract Background Expansion of insurance coverage for gender confirmation surgery (GCS) has led to a large demand for GCS in the United States. This paper sought to determine the financial impact of providing comprehensive GCS services at an academic medical center. Methods Cross-sectional study of patients older than 18 who presented for GCS between January 1, 2015 and July 31, 2018 at a single academic medical center. The utilization of GCS services and associated work relative value units (...

Background Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD)-related hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is on the rise worldwide but data regarding long-term outcomes after curative surgery were limited. The primary aim of this study was to characterize the perioperative and long-term outcomes after liver resection. The secondary aim was to investigate the influence of the histological severity of non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) and its impact on perioperative outcomes and long-term survival. Methods A...
