Conclusions and Relevance: Few hospitals would meet TVP volume thresholds for complex cancer resections with little difference in outcomes between ILV, IHV, and HV hospitals. While a policy to regionalize complex surgical care may have merit, it could also compromise patient autonomy and limit access to care if patients are unable or unwilling to travel.

Conclusions: The long-term survival after MIE compares well with OE and may even be better. Thus, MIE can be recommended as a standard surgical approach for esophageal cancer.

ConclusionsAlthough postoperative pneumonia is associated with many clinical variables, active medical intervention for the prevention of pneumonia in patients with multiple risk factors can improve the postoperative course. In particular, perioperative nutritional care may prevent postoperative pneumonia in patients with malnutrition and a poor PS.

Rojas, Shanda H. BlackmonAbstractBACKGROUNDData on failure to rescue (FTR) after esophagectomy are sparse. We sought to better understand the patient factors associated with FTR, and assessed whether FTR is associated with hospital volume.METHODSWe identified all patients undergoing esophagectomy between 2010 and 2014 from the AHRQ Nationwide Readmission Database. We defined FTR as mortality after a major complication. Multiple logistic re...
