Abstract Background Preoperative testing to assess the physiologic impact of pectus excavatum is sometimes ordered to meet third-party payor preauthorization requirements. This study describes the utility of physiologic testing prior to minimally invasive repair of pectus excavatum (MIRPE). Methods We retrospectively reviewed patients that underwent MIRPE from 1/2012–7/2016 at two academic children's hospitals. Data collected included demographics, insurance, Haller Index (HI), pulmonary functio...

Abstract Background Women are disproportionately underrepresented in American academic surgery and surgical society leadership; we investigated the proportion of speaking roles held by women across a wide variety of surgical society meetings. Methods Publicly-available data on invited speakers, panelists, and moderators at 23 national surgical societies’ annual meetings from 2002 to 2019 were collected. Mixed effects logistic regression was used to evaluate the adjusted trend of gender represent...

Abstract Background Our objective was to assess the relationship between overall survival (OS) and distance travelled to the treating facility for patients undergoing liver resection for hepatocellular carcinoma and to determine whether this relationship was dependent upon the structural factors of the treating facility. Methods Using National Cancer Database, we focused on extremes of travel: Local ( Results We included 6860 patients. After correction for confounding, distance travelled was not...

Abstract null null Background null Early diagnosis of vocal cord iatrogenic injury is crucial, as is perioperative vocal cord evaluation. null null null Methods null Vocal cord mobility detected via transcutaneous laryngeal ultrasonography was compared with that detected via laryngoscopy (the reference). The vocal cord visualization rate of ultrasonography for evaluation of mobility was explored. null null null Results null The diagnostic odds ratio of transcutaneous laryngeal ultrasonography wa...

BACKGROUND To assess preoperative image tumor characteristics and alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) levels to predict early recurrence after liver resection (LR) for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). METHODS This retrospective study's enrolled patients underwent LR for newly diagnosed HCC between 2011 and 2018. Multivariate logistic regression analyses using the Akaike information criterion were adopted to construct a nomogram to predict early recurrence (i.e. recurrence within 1 year). The performance of t...
