Abstract Background Annual cancer-related healthcare expenditure in the United States is estimated to exceed $150 billion by 2020. As the prevalence of thyroid cancer increases worldwide, thyroid cancer survivorship is associated with increasing personal and cumulative costs. Few studies have examined the psychological and material economic costs experienced by thyroid cancer survivors. We seek to estimate the comparative prevalence of financial and psychological hardship among thyroid cancer an...

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 Postoperative pancreatic fistula remains an unsolved challenge after pancreatoduodenectomy. Important in this regard is the presence of a soft pancreatic texture which is a major risk factor. Advances in machine learning and texture analysis of medical images allow identification of features of parenchyma that are invisible to the human eye. The aim of this study was to investigate the potential of machine learning to predict postoperative pancreatic fistula based on preopera...

Abstract Background Ligation of intersphincteric fistula tract has gained increasing popularity as a sphincter-sparing technique for complex anal fistula. The present review aimed to investigate the pooled success and complication rates of ligation of intersphincteric fistula tract in the published literature and to explore the risk factors for failure after ligation of intersphincteric fistula tract. Methods A Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses-compliant literatu...

Abstract Background Injury is the leading cause of death in people under 45 years of age in the United States; however, how care decisions occur in critical injury is poorly understood. This exploratory study sought to generate hypotheses about how care decisions are made among interdisciplinary providers caring for patients who have been critically injured. Methods This was a qualitative study conducted at two intensive care units in a level 1 trauma center in an urban, teaching, safety-net hos...
Abstract Background The aim of the study was to investigate the effect of targeted surgical coaching on self-assessment of laparoscopic operative skill. Accurate self-assessment is vital for autonomous professional development. Surgical coaching can be used for performance improvement, but its role in this domain has been insufficiently investigated. Methods This was a single site, nonrandomized, interrupted time series design trial. Participants were residents, fellows, and attending surgeons r...
