Abstract null null Background null The 8th edition staging for non-small cell lung cancer reclassified tumors >7 cm as stage IIIA (T4N0); previously, such tumors without nodal disease were considered stage IIB (T3N0). This study tested the hypothesis that induction chemotherapy for these stage IIIA patients does not improve survival compared to primary surgery. null null null Methods null The National Cancer Database was queried for non-small cell lung cancer patients with tumor size >7 cm who u...

BACKGROUND A Medicare effect has been described to account for increased health care utilization occurring at the age of 65 years. The existence of such an effect in cancer care, where it would be most likely to reduce mortality, has been unclear. METHODS Patients aged 61 to 69 years who were diagnosed with lung, breast, colon, or prostate cancer from 2004 to 2016 were identified with the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results database and were dichotomized on the basis of eligibility for M...

Abstract null null Background null Enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) pathways in several specialties reduce length of stay, but accelerated discharge after thoracic surgery is not well characterized. This study tested the hypothesis that patients discharged on post-operative day 1 (POD1) after lobectomy for lung cancer have an increased risk of readmission. null null null Methods null Patients who underwent a lobectomy for lung cancer between 2011-2019 in the American College of Surgeons Na...

Abstract null null Objective null This study investigated the impact of facility volume on long-term survival in esophageal cancer patients treated with esophagectomy. null null null Methods null Patients treated with esophagectomy for cT1-3N0-3M0 adenocarcinoma or squamous cell carcinoma of the mid-distal esophagus in the National Cancer Database between 2006-2013 were stratified by annual facility esophagectomy volume dichotomized as more/less than both 6 and 20. Patient characteristics associ...

Background Diaphragm plication (DP) improves pulmonary function and quality of life for those with diaphragm paralysis or dysfunction. It is unknown whether differing degrees of diaphragm dysfunction as measured by sniff testing affect results after plication. Methods Patients who underwent minimally invasive DP from 2008 to 2019 were dichotomized based on sniff test results: paradoxical motion (PM) versus no paradoxical motion (NPM); the latter included normal, decreased, and no motion. Preoper...
