This article explores cultural bias in medical research and care and the need for a more diverse community of physician-scientists.
This cross-sectional survey measures prevalence of burnout and depression among general surgery trainees at multiple institutions and characterizes how resident and attending surgeons perceive these conditions among respondents.
This study identifies the expectations of general surgery residency associated with attrition from training in a national cohort of categorical general surgery interns.
This study assesses rates of readmission to nonindex hospitals after major cancer surgery and compares outcomes between index and nonindex hospital readmissions.
In this study, a Delphi panel assesses the likelihood that certain International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision diagnosis codes can indicate whether such readmissions are associated with surgical quality in the index admission.
This study examines the association between postoperative recovery and functional health literacy in patients undergoing day surgery as part of a randomized clinical trial.
This cohort study evaluates the association of hospital participation in the American College of Surgeons Trauma Quality Improvement Program (benchmark reporting) or the Michigan Trauma Quality Improvement Program (benchmark reporting and collaborative quality improvement) with outcomes compared with control hospitals that did not participate in either program.
This study of clinical and administrative data examines the incidence of opioid-related adverse drug events (ORADEs) in patients undergoing hospital-based surgical and endoscopic procedures and evaluates the association of ORADEs with clinical and cost outcomes.
This secondary analysis of a randomized clinical trial investigates the prognostic role of the total mesorectal excision plane quality in patients with rectal cancer who were treated within the CAO/ARO/AIO-04 phase 3 randomized clinical trial.
This study assesses the association of Medicaid expansion with insurance coverage, in-hospital mortality, failure to rescue, access to rehabilitation, and unplanned readmissions among hospitalized young adult trauma patients.
This Guide to Statistics and Methods summarizes the National Surgical Quality Improvement Program and its pediatric offshoot for use in surgical research.
This Guide to Statistics and Methods details the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program public user file data set for quality and outcomes reporting.
This Guide to Statistics and Methods summarizes the advent, data considerations, utility and unique features, and statistical considerations of the Veterans Affairs National Surgical Quality Improvement Program for use in surgical quality improvement research.
This article describes a machine training algorithm for evaluating surgeon performance in robotic surgery that was developed using automated performance metrics collected from the robotic device.
A man in his 60s with a renal cyst sustained blunt trauma that resulted in renal laceration with arterial extravasation. The patient underwent angioembolization but required 2 U of red blood cells within the next 24 hours. Contrast-enhanced computed tomography was performed to assess for continued bleeding. What is your diagnosis?
This study evaluates the prevalence of postprocedure emergency department visits and admissions and the association of these outcomes with relevant patient, procedure, and facility factors.
This study uses the 2012-2015 American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program–Pediatric database to examine the safety of enterostomy closure in premature neonates weighing less than 2 kg and identify risk factors for adverse outcomes.
This study assesses whether estimates from the new American College of Surgeons Surgical Risk Calculator more closely match residents’ estimations of risk and determines outcomes of similar patients in the National Surgical Quality Improvement Project.
