We propose a nonparametric risk-adjusted cumulative sum chart to monitor surgical outcomes for patients with different risks of post-operative mortality due to risk factors that exist before the surgery. Using varying-coefficient logistic regression models, we accomplish the risk adjustment. Unknown coefficient functions are estimated by global polynomial spline approximation based on the maximum likelihood principle. We suggest a bisection minimization approach and a bootstrap method to determine the chart...
Postoperative complications after lung surgery are frequent, having a detrimental effect on patients' further course. Complications may lead to an increased length of hospital stay and cause additional costs. Several risk factors have been identified but it is still difficult to predict contemporary which patients are at risk. We hypothesized that patients who show an increased inflammatory response at the time of wound closure and 24 hours after surgery are at risk of postoperative complications within 30 ...
Stroke is a well-known and devastating complication during the perioperative period. However, detailed stroke risk profiles within 90 days in patients discharged without stroke after inpatient surgery are not fully understood. Using the case-crossover design, we aimed to evaluate the risk of ischemic stroke in these patients.
Surgical resection is the primary treatment strategy for pheochromocytoma; however, it carries a high risk of morbidity and mortality. The risk factors for severe morbidity remain unclear and require further exploration. We aimed to identify the risk factors for severe morbidity after pheochromocytoma surgery in Chinese patients.
Bariatric surgery is endorsed by multiple societies as the most effective treatment for obesity. Psychosocial functioning has also been noted to improve for most patients after bariatric surgery. However, some studies have shown an increase in post-operative suicide risk. The aim of this study was to review the published literature and evaluate the association of bariatric surgery with suicide events and suicide/self-harm attempts in patients who have undergone weight loss surgery.
Cardiac surgery has been associated with increased risk of postoperative cognitive decline, as well as dementia risk in the general population. Few studies, however, have examined the impact of coronary revascularization or valve replacement / repair surgery on longitudinal cerebral perfusion changes or their association with cognitive function.
To evaluate how antireflux surgery influences the risk of esophageal cancer in patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and Barrett esophagus.
The risk and prognosis of VTE associated with oncologic surgery need to be quantified to guide patient management. We aimed to examine the availability of data and to report the incidence of venous thromboembolism (VTE) in cancer patients after surgery, as well as the clinical outcomes of VTE following oncologic surgery.
Surgical site infection (SSI) is the most frequent complication of Mohs micrographic surgery. Previous studies have identified risk factors for SSI, but it is not known whether antibiotic prophylaxis mitigates this risk.
Cardiac surgery for infective endocarditis (IE) is associated to substantial short- and long-term mortality and female sex seems to be associated with even worse outcomes. The aim of our study was to analyze the impact of sex on 30-day and long-term mortality and to identify sex-related risk factors in IE patients requiring cardiac surgery.
Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a source of morbidity and mortality in patients undergoing orthopaedic surgery. A substantial body of literature supports the use of VTE prophylactic agents in patients undergoing lower extremity surgery. Treatment options include early mobilization, mechanical prophylaxis via pneumatic compression devices, pharmacologic agents, and venous filters. No consensus has been established regarding utilization or timing of VTE prophylaxis measures after spine surgery. The risk of VT...
After studying this article, the participant should be able to: 1. Understand the definition of wrong-site surgery and what it may encompass. 2. State the causes of wrong-site hand surgery. 3. Give examples of initiatives used to prevent wrong-site surgery. 4. Describe a process to minimize the risk of performing wrong-site surgery.
Proximal thoracic aortic surgery utilizing hypothermic circulatory arrest (HCA) carries risks of mortality and major morbidity; however, these risks are not the same for every patient. The goal of the current study was to establish a risk prediction model for risk-stratifying patients undergoing proximal thoracic aortic surgery with HCA for degenerative pathology, so as to facilitate preoperative physician-patient counseling.
Gastric bypass surgery constitutes the most common and effective bariatric surgery to treat obesity. Gastric bypass leads to bone loss, but fracture risk following surgery has been insufficiently studied. Furthermore, the association between gastric bypass and fracture risk has not been studied in patients with diabetes, which is a risk factor for fracture and affected by surgery. In this retrospective cohort study using Swedish national databases, 38 971 obese patients undergoing gastric bypass were identi...
Obesity increases the risk of adverse delivery outcomes. Whether weight loss induced by bariatric surgery influences these risks remains to be determined. The objective was to investigate the risk of adverse delivery outcomes among post-surgery women compared with women without bariatric surgery history but with similar characteristics.
Obesity surgery mortality risk scoring system (OS-MRS) classifies patients into high, intermediate and low risk, based on age, body mass index, sex and other comorbidities such as hypertension and history of pulmonary embolism. High-risk patients not only have a higher mortality but are more likely to develop post-operative complications necessitating intervention or prolonged hospital stay following bariatric surgery. Endoscopically placed duodenal-jejunal bypass sleeve (Endobarrier) has been designed to a...
The traditional fear that every case of acute appendicitis will eventually perforate has led to the generally accepted emergency appendicectomy with minimized delay. However, emergency and thereby sometimes night-time surgery is associated with several drawbacks, whereas the consequences of surgery after limited delay are unclear. This systematic review aimed to assess in-hospital delay before surgery as risk factor for complicated appendicitis and postoperative morbidity in patients with acute appendicitis...
Patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) are an important tool in measuring the benefit of a surgery for patients and for clinicians. The results of such assessment tools can be used to monitor patient progress or initiate intervention. The scores also provide a reproducible evaluation of functional recovery and well-being after surgery. We report the case of a 68-year-old woman who underwent left unicondylar knee replacement in November 2011 followed by right unicondylar knee replacement in April 2012. Pr...
This study aims to investigate the risk factors for and appropriately categorize the various types of vascular surgery readmissions.
Small deep infarcts constitute a well-known risk of motor and speech deficit in insulo-opercular glioma surgery. However, the risk of cognitive deterioration in relation to stroke occurrence in so-called silent areas is poorly known. In this paper, we propose to build a distribution map of small deep infarcts in glioma surgery, and to analyze patients' cognitive outcome in relation to stroke occurrence.
Weight loss following bariatric surgery increases risk for biliary stones. This study performed a meta-analysis evaluating cholecystectomy risks in bariatric patients. A systematic review and meta-analysis were performed. We evaluated the incidence rate for biliary complications in patients followed after bariatric surgery. We compared the risks for mortality, complications, and in hospital stay among patient submitted to cholecystectomy before, concomitantly with or after bariatric surgery, as well as pati...
Low-risk neuroblastomas have favorable biologic characteristics. Children Oncology Group (COG) proposed that surgical resection of the primary tumor was sufficient. We evaluated the long-term prognosis of surgery alone for patients with low-risk neuroblastoma in China.
Prolonged use of opioids initiated for surgical or trauma-related pain management has become a global problem. While several factors have been reported to increase the risk of prolonged opioid use, there is considerable inconsistency regarding their significance or effect size. Therefore, we aimed to pool the effects of risk factors for prolonged opioid use following trauma or surgery and to assess the rate and temporal trend of prolonged opioid use in different settings.
Tuberculosis of the aorta is rare, and its localization in the isthmus is exceptional. Tuberculous aortic pseudoaneurysms have a high risk of rupture with a severe prognosis. Conventional treatment is based on a combination of surgery and anti-tuberculosis chemotherapy. The endovascular approach with stent graft placement can be an attractive and less invasive alternative, like in our case where conventional surgery was considered to be at risk in this nonagenarian patient.
There is a paucity of data regarding risk stratification of pediatric patients presenting for low-risk skin and soft tissue surgery.
