OBJECTIVE We compare neoadjuvant chemotherapy (CT) to neoadjuvant chemotherapy plus chemoradiation (CRT) for patients with gastric adenocarcinoma (GA). SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA The optimal neoadjuvant therapy regimen for resectable gastric adenocarcinoma is not defined. METHODS Utilizing data from two high-volume cancer centers, we analyzed patients who underwent surgery for localized GA from 1/1/2000-12/31/2017. Standard CT regimens were used according to treatment period. We compared propensity...

Abstract Background and objectives Routine lymphadenectomy (LND) for resectable hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) remains controversial. We evaluated national LND trends to identify pre-operative factors associated with node-positive disease to determine which patients might benefit from LND. Methods We identified HCC patients in the National Cancer Database (NCDB) treated with surgical resection between 2004 and 2015. Demographic, operative, pathologic, and survival data were compared. Multivariab...

Abstract Background There remains no tool to quantify the total value of comparative processes in health care. Hospital administrative data sets are emerging as valuable sources to evaluate performance. Thus, we use a framework to simultaneously assess multiple domains of value associated with an enhanced recovery initiative using national administrative data. Materials and methods Risk-stratified clinical pathways for patients undergoing pancreatic surgery were implemented in 2016 at our instit...

BACKGROUND We compared oncologic outcomes of patients who received neoadjuvant chemotherapy (CT) with those of patients who received neoadjuvant chemotherapy plus chemoradiation (CRT) for resectable gastric adenocarcinoma. METHODS We compared oncologic and survival outcomes of patients who received CT or CRT for gastric adenocarcinoma at our institution between July 1995 and July 2018. We analyzed propensity score-matched cohorts based on age, sex, race, tumor histologic characteristics, and cli...

BACKGROUND We seek to determine whether laparoscopic hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemoperfusion (LS-HIPEC) improves overall survival (OS) in patients with gastric and gastroesophageal adenocarcinoma and low-volume peritoneal metastasis compared with standard of care treatment. PATIENTS AND METHODS We reviewed data from a prospectively maintained database of patients with gastric and gastroesophageal adenocarcinoma to identify patients with radiologically occult carcinomatosis or positive perito...

BACKGROUND: Staging laparoscopy and peritoneal cytology can detect occult metastatic disease prior to treatment of gastric cancer. The yield of peritoneal staging in patients with early stage disease is lacking. We assess the yield of peritoneal staging in early stage gastric cancer and its impact on survival. METHODS: Data were obtained from a prospective database of patients who underwent staging laparoscopy and peritoneal cytology for gastric cancer at our institution between July 1995 and Ju...

Background Optimal lymphadenectomy (LAD) for gastric cancer (GC) after neoadjuvant chemoradiation (NACXRT) is not defined. This study assessed the prognostic value of LAD extent after modern preoperative therapy for GC.

Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a major cause of morbidity and mortality following distal pancreatectomy (DP). However, the influence of operative technique on VTE risk after DP is unknown. The purpose of this study was to examine the association between the MIS technique versus the open technique and the development of postoperative VTE after DP. Patients who underwent DP from 2014 to 2015 were identified in the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program pancreas...
