Abstract null null Background null Regionalization of hepatopancreatic surgery to high-volume hospitals has been associated with fragmentation of postoperative care and, in turn, inferior outcomes after surgery. The objective of this study was to examine the association of social vulnerability with the likelihood of experiencing fragmentation of postoperative care (FPC) after hepatopancreatic surgery. null null null Methods null Patients who underwent hepatopancreatic surgery and had at least 1 ...

The use of composite measures like “textbook outcome” (TO) may provide a more accurate measure of surgical quality. We sought to determine if TO has improved over time and to characterize the association of achieving a TO with trends in survival among patients undergoing complex gastrointestinal surgery for cancer. Medicare beneficiaries who underwent pancreas, liver, or colon resection for a cancer diagnosis between 2004 and 2016 were identified using the SEER-Medicare database. Rates of TO (no...

Venous thromboembolism (VTE), including deep venous thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE), represents a common cause of morbidity and mortality following complex gastrointestinal surgery. Whether perioperative VTE also exposes patients to a higher long-term risk of VTE events remains poorly defined. The Medicare 100% Standard Analytic Files were used to identify patients undergoing esophageal, hepatic, pancreatic, and colorectal resection between 2013 and 2017. The impact of perioperative...

INTRODUCTION While the impact of demographic factors on postoperative outcomes has been examined, little is known about the intersection between social vulnerability and residential diversity on postoperative outcomes following cancer surgery. METHODS Individuals who underwent a lung or colon resection for cancer were identified in the 2016-2017 Medicare database. Data were merged with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention social vulnerability index and a residential diversity index was...

INTRODUCTION Residential racial desegregation has demonstrated improved economic and education outcomes. The degree of racial community segregation relative to surgical outcomes has not been examined. PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients undergoing pancreatic resection between 2013 and 2017 were identified from Medicare Standard Analytic Files. A diversity index for each county was calculated from the American Community Survey. Multivariable mixed-effects logistic regression with a random effect for ho...

BACKGROUND Care delivered in hospital-based emergency departments (ED) is a target for cost savings. ED utilization following hepatopancreatic surgery remains poorly defined. We sought to define the rate of ED utilization following liver and pancreatic resection, as well as to identify factors associated with ED visits post-discharge. METHODS The Medicare 100% Standard Analytic Files were used to identify Medicare beneficiaries who underwent hepatectomy or pancreatectomy between 2013 and 2017. C...

BACKGROUND Racial/ethnic disparities in cancer outcomes may relate to variations in receipt of National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) guideline compliant care. PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients undergoing resection of cholangiocarcinoma (CCA) between 2004 and 2015 were identified using the National Cancer Database (NCDB). Institutions treating Black and Hispanic patients within the top decile were categorized as minority-serving hospitals (MSH). Factors associated with receipt of NCCN-complian...
