The widespread call to severely curb or end "surprise" medical bills prompted competing federal legislation during the summer and fall of 2019. The negotiations, maneuvering, and bill markups have continued into this year. Similar to a new Texas law governing state-regulated plans, federal proposals would ban balance billing and remove patients from having any role in out-of-network payment disputes. But with insurer-friendly language lurking in many of those proposals, Dr. Fleeger warns the impact of such ...
In the context of crisis and resource constraints, it is reasonable to assume the deteriorated weaknesses of the Unified Health System (SUS), such as regional inequalities, underfinancing, and care quality issues. This study explored the application of easily comprehensible and calculated access and effectiveness indicators that could reflect the hospital network crisis. Five indicators extracted from the Hospital Information System, related to Brazil and states of the Southeastern region, were analyzed in ...
Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) has now become a global pandemic. This has led the United States to declare a national emergency and a ban on all elective diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, as well as elective surgery in inpatient and outpatient settings. Ambulatory surgery facilities that perform only elective procedures are thus likely to be closed. However, these facilities may be able assist acute care hospitals, as essential (urgent and emergent) surgeries and diagnostic and therapeutic procedu...
Continuation of angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors on the day of surgery is not associated with increased risk of hypotension upon induction of general anesthesia in elective non-cardiac surgeries.
In this paper, I draw on the narratives of 57 individuals whose gender identities and decisions about their bodies trouble the medical protocols for breast and gynecological cancer care. I focus here on the decision-making process for three groups of elective surgeries: hysterectomy, prophylactic bilateral and contralateral mastectomy, and breast reconstruction. These elective surgeries illustrate places in medical interactions where patients and providers rely on frames of gender to determine whether a giv...
Surgical approach is the main form of treatment for several diseases of the abdominal cavity. However, surgical procedure itself is a stressor that may lead to adverse effects unrelated to the treatment goal. Prehabilitation has emerged as a multifactorial preoperative health conditioning program, which promotes improvement in functional capacity and postoperative evolution. The present study reviews literature using MEDLINE, Ovid, Google Scholar, and Cochrane databases in order to determine the concept of ...
Since Nassim Taleb coined black swan as an event that occurred as a complete surprise for everybody, the metaphor of the black swan has been applied to a much wider variety of events. Black swan events now comprise events that are a surprise for some but not for others, events that have a low likelihood, events that were not believed to be possible but still proved to be possible, events that were dismissed as being too improbable to worry about but happened anyway. For a decision maker the black swan probl...
How does music give pleasure? A recent study of harmony in popular music suggests that the pleasure of listening to music is linked to two characteristic interactions between uncertainty and surprise.
Ureteral injury is an intractable complication in gynecological cancer surgeries. Identifying risk factors can ensure safety of the ureters intraoperatively. A narrow pelvis is known to exert extra difficulties in pelvic surgeries. However, whether pelvic dimension can affect the risk of ureteral injury in gynecological cancer surgeries is poorly understood. We aimed to evaluate the association between pelvic dimension and the risk of ureteral injury during gynecological cancer surgeries.
Whether deferring surgery after endoscopic self-expandable metal stent (SEMS) placement for neoplastic stricture, and operating patients in a quasi-elective situation, may result in similar oncologic outcomes to elective operations is unclear. This study aimed to evaluate the disease-free survival (DFS) rates of patients who underwent an interval colon resection after SEMS placement or an elective operation with comparable cancer stages.
Elective rotations are valuable, allowing trainees to personalize their educational experience, focus on areas of weakness, and offer personal and professional development. Emergency medicine (EM) residency program elective rotations may be limited due to the absence of awareness of opportunities and administrative support. We sought to increase the breadth of elective rotation opportunities, improve residents' satisfaction with their elective rotations, and enhance the opportunities for clinical training. ...
Associations of demographic factors with elective dialysis withdrawal and setting of death, patterns of illness trajectories preceding death, and how illness trajectories, particularly worsening putative disability, are associated with elective withdrawal are poorly understood.
Intravenous antibiotic prophylaxis is used for many clean-contaminated surgeries or clean surgeries with an implant, but its value for clean orbital surgery has not been determined. This study investigated infection risks and adverse effects related to antibiotics in patients undergoing orbital surgery.
The feasibility and potential advantages of elective surgery after manual reduction of incarcerated hernia (IH) have not been investigated in detail. Therefore, the aim of this retrospective study was to compare perioperative outcomes of emergency surgery to those of elective surgery after reduction of IH.
In pediatric patients, the development of a postoperative pseudomeningocele after an elective craniotomy is not unusual. Most will resolve with time, but some may require intervention. In this study, the authors analyzed patients who required intervention for a postoperative pseudomeningocele following an elective craniotomy or craniectomy and identified factors associated with the need for intervention.
Endolymphatic sac-related surgeries are a series of effective procedures to treat patients with Ménière's disease. However, there is controversy since they were proposed in 1927. Although most studies have shown the effectiveness of endolymphatic decompression and endolymphatic shunting, the mechanisms of them are still unclear. Some studies suggested that these procedures work because the endolymphatic hydrops relieves after surgery. However, the new one proposed recently, endolymphatic duct blockage, se...
When physicians whom patients do not choose and cannot avoid can bill out of network for care delivered within in-network hospitals, it exposes patients to financial risk and undercuts the functioning of health care markets. Using data for 2015 from a large commercial insurer, we found that at in-network hospitals, 11.8 percent of anesthesiology care, 12.3 percent of care involving a pathologist, 5.6 percent of claims for radiologists, and 11.3 percent of cases involving an assistant surgeon were billed...
To determine the factors that influence bleeding during the course of bariatric surgeries.
To examine how the deprivation level of the community in which one lives influences discharge disposition and the odds of 90-day readmission after elective THA.
The role of laxatives after elective colorectal surgery is unclear, resulting in heterogenous guidelines and variability in clinical practice. This study aimed to gauge surgeons' preferences and practice with regard to laxative use following elective colorectal surgery.
Little is known about the outcomes of outpatient clinic-based elective external cardioversion (OPC-ECV) for persistent atrial fibrillation (PeAF). We investigated the acute, short-term, and long-term elective external cardioversion (ECV) outcomes.
The ARRIVE trial has shown that elective induction of labour at 39 weeks improves maternal and foetal outcomes in comparison with expectant management. Caesarean sections, hypertensive disorders and neonatal ventilator support were all found to be reduced after elective induction. The trial was performed in an American nulliparous low-risk population. Several American professional organizations have now adapted their recommendation on elective induction in nulliparous low-risk women. These organizations now...
There have been reports on postoperative ischemic complications with vascular reconstructive surgery. However, various factors, such as lesions, operative technique, and perioperative treatment, prevent analyzing the causes of ischemic complications in vascular reconstruction surgeries. In the present study, we analyzed the cause of ischemic complications for vascular reconstruction surgeries with the same operator, surgical procedure, and perioperative treatment and without focusing on the lesions.
