Among 1738 patients who underwent esophagectomy at 164 American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program hospitals, Merkow and colleagues measured risk-adjusted 30-day outcomes and hospital-level variation in performance based on operative approach (transhiatal, Ivor Lewis, 3-field, and any approach with an intestinal conduit).

Arch Surg. 2012;147(11):1026-1030. doi:10.1001/archsurg.2012.1480

Feuerbacher and colleagues hypothesized that realistic operating room distractions and interruptions (ORDIs) induce errors in a simulated surgical procedure performed by novice surgeons. For the study, 18 second-year, third-year, and research-year surgical residents completed a within-subjects experiment on a laparoscopic virtual reality simulator.

Arch Surg. 2012;147(11):1031-1035. doi:10.1001/archsurg.2012.1473

In a retrospective review, Falor and coauthors hypothesize that patients with mild gallstone pancreatitis may undergo an early laparoscopic cholecystectomy within 48 hours of hospital admission without awaiting normalization of pancreatic and liver enzyme levels. An invited critique suggest that surgeons should feel more comfortable proceeding with an early laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
