Evaluation of surgical educational videos available for third year medical students.

Conclusions: We identified a lack of quality and thorough educational surgical videos appropriate for third year medical students and a need for improved online video based instruction. Our checklist can be utilized as a guide for anyone creating surgical videos for medical student education in the future. PMID: 31920174 [PubMed - in process]

AbstractBackgroundAs the cost of health care increases in the US, focus has been placed upon efficiency, cost reduction, and containment of spending. Operating room costs play a significant role in this spending. We investigated whether surgeon education and universal preference cards can have an impact on reducing the disposable supply costs for common laparoscopic general surgery procedures.MethodsGeneral surgeons at two institutions participated in an educational session about the costs of the operative supplies used to perform laparoscopic appendectomies and cholecystectomies. All the surgeons at one institution agreed...

CONCLUSION: SIL is a laparoscopic technique that can safely be offered to patients presenting abdominal diseases. The main advantages include enhanced cosmetic results and reduced abdominal trauma. The main disadvantages are patient selection, a longer operative time for some procedures, and a need to expose the operative field for some other procedures. PMID: 31710087 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Sheldon RR, Weiss JB, Do WS, Forte DM, Carter PL, Eckert MJ, Sohn VY Abstract INTRODUCTION: Surgery is a known gateway to opioid use that may result in long-term morbidity. Given the paucity of evidence regarding the appropriate amount of postoperative opioid analgesia and variable prescribing education, we investigated prescribing habits before and after institution of a multimodal postoperative pain management protocol. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Laparoscopic appendectomies, laparoscopic cholecystectomies, inguinal hernia repairs, and umbilical hernia repairs performed at a tertiary military medical cent...

ConclusionUniversal OpSalp during hysterectomy, BTL and elective surgery will significantly reduce OvCa mortality and reduce overall healthcare expenditures due to prevention of OvCa. Therefore, it would be reasonable to perform OpSalp in all women undergoing elective surgery.

Abstract Overdose of opioids is the number one cause of accidental death in the United States, and surgeons are overprescribing these medications. The aim of this study was to assess the feasibility of implementing postoperative opioid prescribing guidelines for general surgery procedures at a public hospital, where patients have lower socioeconomic status, public insurance, and limited access to care. We implemented a quality improvement project, which included in-service training for surgical staff and distribution of standardized guidelines. An infographic for patients was created to facilitate education on pos...

Abstract Older adults undergoing nonelective surgery are at risk for geriatric events (GEs: delirium, dehydration, falls/fractures, failure to thrive, and pressure ulcers), but the impact of GEs on postoperative outcomes is unclear. Using the 2013 to 2014 National Inpatient Sample, we analyzed nonelective hospital admissions for five common operations (laparoscopic cholecystectomy, colectomy, soft tissue debridement, small bowel resection, and laparoscopic appendectomy) in older adults (aged ≥65 years) and a younger referent group (aged 55-64 years). Nationally weighted descriptive statistics were generated for...
