Summarizing results of three-dimensional (3D) gait analysis into a comprehensive measure of overall gait function is valuable to discern to what extent gait function is affected, and later recovered after surgery and rehabilitation. This study aimed to investigate whether preoperative gait function, quantified and summarized using the Cardiff Classifier, can predict improvements in postoperative patient-reported activities of daily living, and overall gait function one year after total hip arthroplasty (THA). Secondly, to explore relationships between pre-to-post surgical change in gait function versus changes in patient-reported and performance-based function. Read More

Background: Drain management is important for the detection and treatment of clinically relevant postoperative pancreatic fistula (CR-POPF). We previously established the triple-checked criteria for drain removal: drain fluid amylase (DFA) <5,000 U/l on postoperative day (POD) 1 and DFA <3,000 U/l on POD 3, or C-reactive protein <15 mg/dl on POD 3. This study aimed to validate the efficacy of the triple-checked criteria. Read More

Summary: Clinical prediction models in anesthesia and surgery research have many clinical applications including preoperative risk stratification with implications for clinical utility in decision-making, resource utilization, and costs. It is imperative that predictive algorithms and multivariable models are validated in a suitable and comprehensive way in order to establish the robustness of the model in terms of accuracy, predictive ability, reliability, and generalizability. The purpose of this article is to educate anesthesia researchers at an introductory level on important statistical concepts involved with development and validation of multivariable prediction models for a binary outcome.
