Abstract Background Seat belt use during motor vehicle collisions (MVCs) has been shown to alter adults’ intra-abdominal injury patterns, although the effect of seat belt use in pregnant women is unclear. The objective of this study was to determine the impact of seat belt use in pregnancy on injuries and outcomes after MVCs. Methods Patients injured by MVCs were identified from the National Trauma Data Bank (2007-2014). The exclusion criteria were transfer from an outside hospital, male or unsp...

Abstract Background Smoking cessation programs for patients with cancer suggest 6-mo quit rates between 22% and 40%, and 1-y rates of 33%. We sought to investigate the long-term outcomes of an intensive, preoperative smoking cessation program in patients undergoing lung resection. Material and methods A retrospective analysis of an IRB-approved, prospective database was performed. Elective lung resections between January 1, 2015 and June 30, 2017 were identified. Demographics, smoking status, pa...

Abstract Background This study describes the relationship between medical student perception of surgery, frequency of positive surgery clerkship activities, and overall surgical clerkship experience. Methods Medical students at four academic hospitals completed pre- and post-clerkship surveys assessing 1) surgery clerkship activities/experiences and 2) perceptions of surgery during the 2017-2018 academic year. Results Ninety-one percent of students completed both a pre- and post-clerkship survey...

Abstract Background Wound healing is a complex process aiming at repairing the damaged skin. MiR-23b has been reported to be upregulated during wound healing. In this study, we intended to explore the working mechanism of miR-23b during wound healing. Methods Quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction was performed to detect the enrichment of miR-23b and tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase-3 (TIMP3) in HaCaT cells. Scratch wound assay was carried out to measure the migration of HaCaT cel...

Abstract Background The impact of time to surgical resection after neoadjuvant external beam radiation therapy (EBRT) in the high-grade soft tissue and retroperitoneal sarcomas has not been well established. We aimed to evaluate how surgical timing from EBRT affects oncologic and perioperative outcomes. Methods We performed a single institution retrospective cohort study of patients with biopsy-proven, high-grade sarcoma who completed neoadjuvant EBRT and resection from January 1, 1999 to Septem...

Abstract Background Recent evidence demonstrates that closed chest compressions directly over the left ventricle (LV) in a traumatic cardiac arrest (TCA) model improve hemodynamics and return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) when compared with traditional compressions. Resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta (REBOA) also improves hemodynamics and controls hemorrhage in TCA. We hypothesized that chest compressions located over the LV would result in improved hemodynamics and RO...

Abstract Background To increase workforce diversity among academic medical centers, the Association of American Medical Colleges recommends multiple inclusive strategies for evaluating and hiring candidates. Our objective was to determine (1) usual and inclusive hiring practices used among academic surgery departments and (2) the barriers to utilization of inclusive hiring practices. Materials and methods We used a qualitative design and conducted semistructured interviews with academic surgery ...

Abstract Background In the present paper, we introduce our experience with the novel method during laparoscopic anterior resection of upper rectal or sigmoid colon cancer by transrectal natural orifice specimen extraction (NOSE). Methods A prospective randomized controlled trial was performed from June 2016 to May 2019. Patients with upper rectal or sigmoid colon cancer were randomized in a 1:1 ratio to the NOSE group and the non-NOSE group. Preoperative and postoperative clinical variables were...

Abstract Background Operative approaches for superior mesenteric artery syndrome (SMAS) vary from Roux-en-Y duodenojejunostomy to the more conservative division of the ligament of Treitz with inferior duodenal derotation known as the Strong procedure. We sought to examine outcomes following a modified version of Strong procedure where the duodenum is lowered as opposed to derotated for the management of SMAS. Materials and methods We conducted a retrospective chart review of children who underwe...

Abstract Background Clinical trials have long established the long-term safety of omitting axillary lymph node dissection (ALND) after sentinel lymph node dissection (SLND) in patients with clinically node-negative early stage breast cancer. The variations in utilization of SLND and ALND in this patient population, however, are currently unknown. Methods Adult female patients (40 years and older) within the National Cancer Database diagnosed with breast cancer between January 2013 and December 2...
