OBJECTIVE Patient outcomes of ventriculoperitoneal (VP) shunt surgery, the mainstay treatment for hydrocephalus in adults, are poor because of high shunt failure rates. The use of neuronavigation or laparoscopy can reduce the risks of proximal or distal shunt catheter failure, respectively, but has less independent effect on overall shunt failures. No adult studies to date have combined both approaches in the setting of a shunt infection prevention protocol to reduce shunt failure. The goal of t...

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...

OBJECTIVE To establish and define disparities in care for patients presenting with surgical disease who have pre-existing mental health diagnoses. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA Mental illness affects approximately 6.7 million Canadians. For them, stigma, comorbid disorders, and sequelae of psychiatric diagnoses can be barriers patients face to receive equitable healthcare. The goal of this review is to define inequities in surgical care for patients with pre-existing mental illness. METHODS We search ...

BACKGROUND Conflicting data persists for use of wound protectors in pancreatoduodenectomy (PD) to prevent surgical site infection (SSI). We aimed to examine, at a multi-institutional level, the effect of wound protectors on superficial or deep SSI following elective open PD. METHODS The American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program pancreatectomy procedure targeted participant use file was queried from 2016 to 2018. Planned open PD procedures were extracted. Univaria...
