Abstract Background The Affordable Care Act Medicaid expansion demonstrated inconsistent effects on cancer surgery utilization rates among racial and ethnic minorities and low-income Americans. This quasi-experimental study examines whether Medicaid expansion differentially increased the utilization of surgical cancer care for low-income groups and racial minorities in states that expanded their Medicaid programs. Methods A cohort of more than 81,000 patients 18 to 64 years of age who underwent ...

Abstract Background Frailty is an established predictor of adverse outcomes in geriatric patients. Health-related quality of life (HRQoL) is an important outcome measure among trauma patients. This prospective observational study examined the impact of frailty on health-related quality of life in geriatric trauma patients. Methods We prospectively enrolled geriatric (age ≥65 years) trauma patients. We calculated the frailty index (FI) within 24 hours of admission using the trauma-specific frailt...

Abstract Background The saline infusion test is widely used as a confirmatory test for primary aldosteronism, and we hypothesized that post-saline–infusion test aldosterone levels might predict the clinical outcomes in primary aldosteronism patients after adrenalectomy. Methods An observational cohort study was performed. We included primary aldosteronism patients who had undergone adrenalectomy from the Taiwan Primary Aldosteronism Investigation database between 1995 and 2017. The patients were ...

Abstract Background As robotic surgery becomes more ubiquitous, determining clinical benefit is necessary to justify the cost and time investment required to become proficient. We hypothesized that robotic cholecystectomy would be associated with improved clinical outcomes but also increased cost as compared with standard laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Materials and Methods All patients undergoing robotic or laparoscopic cholecystectomy at a single academic hospital between 2007 and 2017 were ide...

Abstract Background Injury of the recurrent laryngeal nerve and consequent disorder of vocal fold movement is a typical complication in thyroid and parathyroid surgery. During postoperative laryngoscopy we observed not only a complete standstill (vocal fold paralysis), but also a hypomobility (paresis). In this prospective study, we investigated the difference in incidence and prognosis as well as risk-factors, intraoperative neuromonitoring, and symptoms between vocal fold paralysis and vocal f...

Abstract Background Many current guidelines recommend nonoperative management for pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors Methods Using the National Cancer Database (2004–2014), 3,243 cases of T1 (≤2.0 cm) pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors were identified. Additional patient and tumor characteristics were examined. Multivariate models were used to identify factors that predicted resection and to assess patient survival after resection. Results 75% of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors measuring 0 to 1.0 c...

Abstract Background This study aimed to determine timing and risk factors for 30- and 90-day unplanned hospital readmissions and return to the operating room. Methods Retrospective case series, including consecutive adult patients with Crohn’s disease, undergoing a major abdominal surgical procedure during a 3.5-year inclusion period was performed. The primary outcomes were 0- to 30-day and 30- to 90-day readmission and return to the operating room rates. Univariate and multivariable risk factor...

Abstract Background Obesity is a risk factor for colorectal cancer and possibly the formation of precancerous, colorectal polyps . Bariatric surgery is very effective for long-term weight loss; however, it is not known whether bariatric surgery decreases the risk of subsequent colonic neoplasia. We hypothesized that bariatric surgery would decrease the risk of developing colorectal lesions (new cancer and precancerous polyps). Methods We reviewed all patients ( n = 3,676) who underwent bariatric...
