Abstract Background We hypothesized that general surgeons are more likely to use a robotic surgical platform at hospitals where more urologic and gynecologic robotic operations are performed, suggesting that hospital-related factors are important for choice of usage of minimally invasive platforms. Methods We queried the National Inpatient Sample from 2010 to 2014 for patients who underwent stomach, gallbladder, pancreas, spleen, colon and rectum, or hernia (general surgery), prostate or kidney ...

Abstract Background Gynecomastia is the most common benign enlargement of the mammary gland and adipose tissue in males. Because a feminine-looking chest contour can bring severe psychologic burden to patients, subcutaneous mastectomy has become the standard treatment for this condition. Conventional open surgery causes conspicuous scarring that may affect the appearance of the breast. We provide a novel surgical operative for the treatment of gynecomastia. Method With approval from our institut...

Abstract Background A proliferation of work on surgical quality improvement has brought about an increase in quality improvement publications. We assessed the quality of surgical quality improvement publications using the Standards of Quality Improvement Reporting Excellence (SQUIRE) guidelines. Methods We conducted a comprehensive review of the surgical quality improvement literature from 2008 to 2018. Articles were reviewed for concordance with 18 SQUIRE statements and 40 subheadings using a d...

Abstract Background Despite an increasing number of women in the field of surgery, bias regarding cognitive or technical ability may continue to affect the experience of female trainees differently than their male counterparts. This study examines the differences in the degree of operative autonomy given to female compared with male general surgery trainees. Methods A smartphone app was used to collect evaluations of operative autonomy measured using the 4-point Zwisch scale, which describes def...

Abstract Background Hospitals with safety-net status have been associated with inferior surgical outcomes and higher costs. The mechanism of this discrepancy, however, is not well understood. We hypothesized that discrepant rates of failure to rescue after complications of routine cardiac surgery would explain the observed inferior outcomes at safety-net hospitals. Methods The National Inpatient Sample was used to identify adult patients who underwent elective coronary artery bypass grafting and...

Abstract Background With increasing dissemination and improved survival after extracorporeal life support, also called extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, the decrease in readmissions after hospitalization involving extracorporeal life support is an emerging priority. The present study aimed to identify predictors of early readmission after extracorporeal life support at a national level. Methods This was a retrospective cohort study using the Nationwide Readmissions Database. All patients ≥18 ...

Abstract Background No consensus exists on whether patient-provider race, gender, and language concordance provides benefits to surgical patients. We report a systematic review of the association between patient-provider concordance and patient preferences and outcomes in surgery. Methods A systematic review of the literature was performed in Medline and PubMed using defined search terms to identify studies related to patient-provider concordance in surgical patients. We included studies with fu...

Abstract Background Although a growing body of literature has focused on the impacts leadership development programs have had on the individual surgeon, little effort has been focused on understanding the impacts these programs have had on surgical culture. The purpose of this study was to explore the impacts of implementing a leadership development program on the culture of the Department of Surgery at University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Methods Qualitative interviews were conducted with 14 surg...
