This Viewpoint offers a historical perspective on the significance of mentorship in surgical education and training.
This original investigation shows that the review times observed at one institutional review board are substantially longer than the 60-day target recommended by expert panels.
This retrospective cohort study demonstrates that longer surgery is directly associated with an increased risk for venous thromboembolism.
This retrospective cohort study finds that pancreatic resection with autologous islet transplantation for severe chronic pancreatitis is a safe and effective final alternative to ameliorate debilitating pain and to help prevent the development of surgical diabetes.
This retrospective review finds that neither race nor metabolic risk factors affect nocturia severity; however, variables that denote nocturnal urine overproduction sharply discriminate the risk of nocturia severity.
This retrospective review found that laparoscopic cholecystectomy performed within 2 days of presentation of acute cholecystitis yielded the best outcomes and lowest costs.
This prospective feasibility trial adds selective removal of clip-containing lymph nodes to sentinel lymph node dissection, with the possibility of identifying patients for limited nodal surgery after chemotherapy.
This database study found that surgical training does not sufficiently emphasize the necessary exposure to technical expertise and clinical management of patients undergoing bariatric surgery.
This retrospective analysis of a prospectively collected institutional database linked to statewide data of patients who underwent pancreatectomy at a tertiary care referral center finds that 21.5% of patients required early readmission after pancreatectomy.
This systematic review and meta-analysis demonstrates that subtotal cholecystectomy is an important tool for use in difficult gallbladders and achieves morbidity rates comparable to those reported for total cholecystectomy in simple cases.
This retrospective review shows that minimally invasive surgery has an increasingly prominent role in contemporary surgical therapy for many common diseases, although the open approach still predominates in all but 5 procedures.
