Validity of Information Employed to Generate Standardized Mortality Ratios Using Hospital Administrative Databases (RNMH)

2016-06-28 21:23:21 | BioPortfolio


In a retrospective cross-sectional study, investigators aimed to valid the variables employed to generate standardized mortality ratio from hospital administrative databases. For this purpose, investigators have compared those variables collected in administrative databases with the information available in patient medical record.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Percutaneous excision of a herniated or displaced intervertebral disk by posterolateral approach, always remaining outside the spinal canal. Percutaneous nucleotomy was first described by Hijikata in Japan in 1975. In 1985 Onik introduced automated percutaneous nucleotomy which consists in percutaneous aspiration of the nucleus pulposus. It is carried out under local anesthesia, thus reducing the surgical insult and requiring brief hospitalization, often performed on an outpatient basis. It appears to be a well-tolerated alternative to surgical diskectomy and chymopapain nucleolysis.
