We Need New Scoring Systems for Predicting Surgical Outcomes

Arch Surg. 2008;143(4):425-426. doi:10.1001/archsurg.143.4.425-b

In a recent article in Archives, Horzic and colleagues1 suggest that the specialized colorectal Physiological and Operative Severity Score for the Enumeration of Mortality and Morbidity (Cr-POSSUM) is a promising tool for monitoring surgical outcomes in colorectal cancer surgery and there is a need for new scoring systems outside original development and validation populations. We agree with the authors.
