Procedure-based reimbursement is mediated by both work relative value unit (wRVU) and a specialty-specific compensation rate. Whether gender-based discrepancies in reimbursement have improved over time and which of these factors, wRVUs assigned per procedure or dollars per RVU, are the driver of these discrepancies in unknown. We aim to describe h...

Study Objective To determine the effect of surgical approach on overall survival (OS) for women with advanced, epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) following neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NACT) and to determine socio-demographic and medical factors associated with surgical approach. Design Retrospective cohort study. Setting National Cancer Database. Patients or Participants Women with stage IIIC/IV EOC treated with NACT within 90 days of diagnosis followed by cytoreductive surgery (CRS) from 2010-2016. ...

Abstract Objective Determine the incidence and identify factors associated with potentially avoidable hospital readmissions due to uncontrolled symptoms or minor complications after surgery for gynecologic cancers. Methods Women who underwent major abdominal or pelvic surgery for a gynecologic malignancy between 2015 and 2017 were identified from the National Surgical Quality Improvement Program targeted hysterectomy dataset. Hospital readmissions within 30 days of surgery were categorized as in...

Abstract Objectives Estimate the association between non-surgical management (NSM) (e.g. hormonal or radiation therapy) and overall survival among women with stage I endometrioid endometrial cancer (EEC) and identify patient and facility characteristics associated with receipt of NSM. Methods Women >45 years of age with clinical stage I EEC were identified in the National Cancer Database from 2004 to 2016. Women treated with NSM were compared with women treated initially with hysterectomy. Patie...
