Purpose null Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) remains a significant health issue. For most patients there are no options for targeted therapy and existing treatments are limited by toxicity. The HOPE trial (Harnessing Organoids for PErsonalized Therapy) was a pilot feasibility trial aiming to prospectively generate patient derived organoids (PDOs) from patients with PDAC and test their drug sensitivity and correlation with clinical outcomes. null Experimental design null PDOs were establi...

Objective Differential use of communal terms (caring/unselfish traits) versus agentic terms (goal-oriented/leadership/achievement traits) may reveal bias and has been extensively reported in letters of recommendation for residency. We evaluated bias in medical student performance evaluations (MSPE) of general surgery residency applicants. Design This is a retrospective study evaluating ethnic/race bias, as measured by differential use of agentic and communal terms, in MSPEs of residency applican...

Abstract null null Background null Intraperitoneal drain placement decreases morbidity and mortality in patients who develop a clinically relevant postoperative pancreatic fistula (CR-POPF) following pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD). It is unknown whether multiple drains mitigate CR-POPF better than a single drain. We hypothesize that multiple drains decrease the complication burden more than a single drain in cases at greater risk for CR-POPF. null null null Methods null The Fistula Risk Score (FRS...

Despite the benefits and increased clinical application of primary palliative care principles within surgery, palliative care education among surgical trainees remains varied and poorly defined. Through a survey of general surgery program directors, this perspective highlights current palliative care educational practices of general surgery residencies and existing curricula. Although program directors deemed palliative care education important to surgical training, barriers to improving residen...

Limited English proficiency has been shown to negatively affect health outcomes. However, as of now, little is known about survival rates of patients with limited English proficiency (LEP) and pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) when compared to patients with English proficiency (EP) in an urban, non-safety net setting. We aimed to compare survival rates between patients with LEP and those with EP who had a diagnosis of PDAC. A single-institution retrospective propensity-matched cohort study...

: MINI: Cohort study (n = 237) describing a training program to teach robot-assisted distal pancreatectomy to surgeons at an academic institution and assess its impact on outcomes. After training, perioperative blood loss and length of stay improved, while complication rates remained unchanged. Propensity-score matching confirmed a 2-day reduction in length of stay after RADP. OBJECTIVE: To train practicing surgeons in robot-assisted distal pancreatectomy (RADP) and assess the impact on 5 domain...

Objective Sociocultural differences between patients and physicians affect communication, and suboptimal communication can lead to patient dissatisfaction and poor health outcomes. To mitigate disparities in surgical outcomes, the Provider Awareness and Cultural dexterity Toolkit for Surgeons was developed as a novel curriculum for surgical residents focusing on patient-centeredness and enhanced patient-clinician communication through a cultural dexterity framework. This study's objective was to...

Abstract Background The association between intraoperative estimated blood loss and outcomes after pancreatoduodenectomy has, thus far, been rarely explored. Methods In total, 7,706 pancreatoduodenectomies performed at 18 international institutions composing the Pancreas Fistula Study Group were examined (2003–2020). High estimated blood loss (>700 mL) was defined as twice the median. Propensity score matching (1:1 exact-match) was employed to adjust for variables associated with high estimated ...

Abstract Background Pancreatoduodenectomies at high risk for clinically relevant pancreatic fistula are uncommon, yet intimidating, situations. In such scenarios, the impact of individual surgeon experience on outcomes is poorly understood. Methods The fistula risk score was applied to identify high-risk patients (fistula risk score 7–10) from 7,706 pancreatoduodenectomies performed at 18 international institutions (2003–2020). For each case, surgeon pancreatoduodenectomy career volume and years...

OBJECTIVE An excessive amount of nonurgent pages may disrupt patient care, reduce efficiency, and contribute to burnout. We present detailed paging data to analyze frequency, content, and urgency of pages received by surgery residents to provide recommendations to reduce resident distractions and fatigue. DESIGN Prospective review of pages received by surgery residents over 15 weeks in 2019. Pages were analyzed by content and urgency (routine, important, emergent) by author consensus and compare...
