OBJECTIVE null Night-float rotations require general surgery interns to prioritize multiple competing patients’ needs efficiently and accurately. Research is lacking on whether these skills can be taught and to what degree the prioritizations taught match overall attending surgeon expectations. null null null DESIGN null A night-float situation was developed to simulate the experience of surgical interns responding to multiple patients’ needs. Participants were instructed to rank order 10 patien...

OBJECTIVE To describe our institutional experience with resected cystic tumors of the pancreas with emphasis on changes in clinical presentation and accuracy of preoperative diagnosis. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA Incidental-discovery of pancreatic cystic lesions has increased and has led to a rise in pancreatic resections. It is important to analyze surgical outcomes from these procedures, and the prevalence of malignancy, pre-malignancy and resections for purely benign lesions, some of which may be...

OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate whether neoadjuvant therapy (NAT) critically influenced microscopically complete resection (R0) rates and long-term outcomes for patients with pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma who underwent pancreatoduodenectomy (PD) with portomesenteric vein resection (PVR) from a diverse, world-wide group of high-volume centers. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA Limited size studies suggest that NAT improves R0 rates and overall survival compared to upfront surgery in rese...

Inflammatory pseudotumor is a term used to designate inflammation-rich tumefactive lesions. Following the exclusion of specific entities such as IgG4-related disease and other neoplastic entities previously included in this entity, the majority of hepatic pseudotumors show a prominent fibrohistiocytic inflammatory reaction and have been previously categorized as fibrohistiocytic variant of hepatic pseudotumor (FHVHPT). The goal of this study was to examine the clinical, radiologic, histologic, a...

Background null Oligometastatic colorectal cancer (CRC) is potentially curable and demands individualised strategies. null Methods null This single-centre retrospective study investigated if positron emission tomography (PET)/magnetic resonance imaging (MR) had a clinical impact on oligometastatic CRC relative to the standard of care imaging (SCI). Adult patients with oligometastatic CRC on SCI who also underwent PET/MR between 3/2016 and 3/2019 were included. The exclusion criterion was lack of...

OBJECTIVE We aimed to compare discharge opioid prescriptions pre- and post-Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) implementation. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA ERAS programs decrease inpatient opioid use, but their relationship with post-discharge opioids remains unclear. METHODS All patients undergoing hysterectomy between October 2016-November 2020 and pancreatectomy or hepatectomy between April 2017-November 2020 at one tertiary care center were included. For each procedure, ERAS was implemented du...

The survival benefit of negative margins for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) has been demonstrated. However, there is no consensus regarding the optimal resection margin width. We assessed the impact of hepatic resection margin width for solitary HCC on overall (OS), recurrence-free (RFS), and liver-specific recurrence-free survival (LSRFS). Clinicopathologic data were retrospectively collected for solitary HCC patients who underwent a negative margin hepatectomy (1992–2015). Margin width was cat...

Abstract Background Pancreatic operations are technically complex with a significant risk of morbidity and mortality. Analysis of litigation following surgery can disclose avoidable errors. Methods Two legal databases, Westlaw and Lexis Nexis, were queried for jury verdicts, settlements and appeal cases in the United States related to pancreatic surgery and malpractice between 1980 and 2020. Results Thirty-four cases were analyzed. Pancreaticoduodenectomy (n = 22, 65%) was the most common proced...
