OBJECTIVE The objective of the current study was to characterize the role of patient social vulnerability relative to hospital racial/ethnic integration on postoperative outcomes among patients undergoing pancreatectomy. BACKGROUND The interplay between patient- and community-level factors on outcomes after complex surgery has not been well-examined. METHODS Medicare beneficiaries who underwent a pancreatectomy between 2013 and 2017 were identified utilizing 100% Medicare inpatient files. P-SVI ...

OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to examine prognostic differences between liver resection (LR) and percutaneous radiofrequency ablation (PRFA) for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) based on preoperative predicted microvascular invasion (MVI) risk. METHODS Data on consecutive patients who underwent LR (n = 1344) or PRFA (n = 853) for hepatitis B virus-related HCC within the Milan criteria (MC) were analyzed. A preoperative nomogram was used to estimate MVI risk. Overall survival (OS), time to r...

Background null Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the most commonly diagnosed primary liver tumor with an increasing incidence worldwide. Management of patients with HCC is largely dictated by the presence of cirrhosis, disease stage, underlying liver function, and patient performance status. null Purpose null We provide an update on key aspects of surgical treatment options for patients with HCC. RESULTS & CONCLUSIONS: Liver resection and transplantation remain cornerstone treatment options for...

Importance null Cancer is the leading cause of mortality in incarcerated individuals older than 45 years and the fourth leading cause of mortality overall. Health care professionals face increasing challenges to provide high-quality care under the confines of prison regulations and procedures. null Observations null Adjusted for age, race, sex, and year of diagnosis, the standardized incidence ratio for all cancers is more than 2-fold higher in incarcerated vs general populations. Among deaths o...

Outcomes after cancer resection are traditionally measured individually. Composite metrics, or textbook outcomes, bundle outcomes into a single value to facilitate assessments of quality. We propose a composite outcome for non-small cell lung cancer resections, examine factors associated with the outcome, and evaluate its effect on overall survival. We queried the National Cancer Database for patients with stage I/II non-small cell lung cancer who underwent sublobar resection, lobectomy, or pneu...

Background null "Textbook oncologic outcome" (TOO) is a composite quality measure representing the "ideal" outcome for patients undergoing cancer surgery. This study sought to assess the validity of TOO as a metric to evaluate hospital quality. null Methods null Patients who underwent curative-intent resection of gastric, pancreatic, colon, rectal, lung, esophageal, bladder, or ovarian cancer were identified in the National Cancer Database (2006-2017). Cancer site-specific TOO was defined as ade...

Hepatobiliary cancers, including hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), cholangiocarcinoma (CCA), and gallbladder carcinoma (GBC), are lethal cancers with limited therapeutic options. Curative-intent treatment typically involves surgery, yet recurrence is common and many patients present with advanced disease not amenable to an operation. Immunotherapy represents a promising approach to improve outcomes, but the immunosuppressive tumor microenvironment of the liver characteristic of hepatobiliary cance...
