Predictors of same-admission cholecystectomy in mild, acute, biliary pancreatitis.

HPB (Oxford) 2021 Apr 20. Epub 2021 Apr 20.

Department of Surgery, Saint Agnes Healthcare, Baltimore, MD, USA.

Background: Failure to perform same-admission cholecystectomy (SA-CCY) for mild, acute, biliary pancreatitis (MABP) is a recognized risk factor for recurrence and readmission. However, rates of SA-CCY are low and factors associated with these low rates require elucidation.

Methods: Primary MAPB admissions were pooled from NIS 2000-2014 (weighted n = 578 258). Read More

Pyogenic Liver Abscess Risk in Patients With Newly Diagnosed Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus: A Nationwide, Population-Based Cohort Study.

Front Med (Lausanne) 2021 12;8:675345. Epub 2021 May 12.

Graduate Institute of Biomedical Sciences Science, School of Medicine, College of Medicine, China Medical University, Taichung, Taiwan.

To date, no comprehensive epidemiological study exists on pyogenic liver abscess (PLA) risk in patients with newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) worldwide. We conducted a retrospective cohort study by using data from Taiwan National Health Insurance Research Database (NHIRD) to examine the association between newly diagnosed T2DM and PLA. The T2DM cohort included patients newly diagnosed as having T2DM (ICD-9-CM:250) from 2000 to 2009, with follow-up until December 31, 2011. Read More

Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography in Patients With Versus Without Prior Myocardial Infarction or Coronary Revascularization: A Nationwide Cohort Study.

Cureus 2021 Mar 16;13(3):e13921. Epub 2021 Mar 16.

Gastroenterology, Mayo Clinic in Arizona, Scottsdale, USA.

Background Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) can be associated with complications, including precipitation of peri-procedural myocardial ischemia. However, data regarding the trends and impact of previous myocardial infarction (MI) and/or percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) or coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) on ERCP outcomes remains unknown. Methods Using the National Inpatient Sample (2007-2014) and relevant ICD-9-CM codes, we identified adults who underwent ERCP with (Group 1) and without (Group 2) prior history of MI/PCI/CABG, and compared their demographics, comorbidities, and inpatient outcomes.

Finding the Most Favorable Timing for Cholecystectomy after Percutaneous Cholecystostomy Tube Placement: An Analysis of Institutional and National Data.

J Am Coll Surg 2021 Jan 21;232(1):55-64. Epub 2020 Oct 21.

Department of Surgery, Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, Philadelphia, PA; Sidney Kimmel Medical College, Philadelphia University and Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, PA. Electronic address:

Background: Early cholecystectomy (E-CCY; 8 weeks or less) after percutaneous cholecystostomy tube (PCT) placement has been associated with increased postoperative complications, but this finding has not been validated at a national level and PCT-related complications and interventions (PCT-RCIs) were not evaluated.

Study Design: Adults with PCT for acute cholecystitis subsequently undergoing CCY were identified within the Nationwide Readmission Database (2010-2015) and our institution (2017-2019). Adjusted relative risks (aRRs) of postoperative complications were estimated using Poisson regression comparing E-CCY with delayed cholecystectomy (D-CCY; more than 8 weeks) within the nationwide cohort.

Surg Endosc 2021 01 6;35(1):326-332. Epub 2020 Feb 6.

Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Rutgers New Jersey Medical School, Newark, NJ, USA.

Background: Our aim was to assess the differences in outcomes of cholecystitis, pancreatitis, gastrointestinal (GI) bleed, GI perforation, and mortality in teaching versus nonteaching hospitals nationwide among therapeutic and diagnostic ERCPs. We hypothesized that complication rates would be higher in teaching hospitals given greater patient complexity.

Methods: Inpatient diagnostic and therapeutic ERCPs were identified from the National Inpatient Sample (NIS) from 2008 to 2012. Read More

Can J Surg 2020 01 9;63(1):E9-E12. Epub 2020 Jan 9.

From the Division of Emergency Medicine, Western University, London, Ont. (Thompson, Myslik); the Department of Surgery, Western University, London, Ont. (Koichopolos, Leeper); the Division of Critical Care Medicine, Western University, London, Ont. (Leeper); and the Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry, Western University, London, Ont. (Vandelinde).

Summary: Multiple studies confirm that point of care ultrasound (PoCUS) has a high sensitivity and specificity for cholelithiasis and cholecystitis. However, there is poor perceived reliability of biliary PoCUS by surgeons. This survey was performed to assess surgeons’ opinions on using PoCUS in gallstone disease and barriers that exist for its institution. Read More

Acute Cholecystitis in Elderly Patients after Hip Fracture: a Nationwide Cohort Study.

J Korean Med Sci 2019 Feb 25;34(5):e36. Epub 2019 Jan 25.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Eulji University Hospital, Daejeon, Korea.

Background: Because acute cholecystitis in elderly hip fracture is not easily distinguishable from other gastrointestinal symptoms and involves atypical clinical behaviors, it may not be diagnosed in the early stage. However, the exact incidences could not be reported. We utilized data from a nationwide claims database and attempted to assess the incidence of acute cholecystitis in elderly hip fracture patients and how cholecystitis affects mortality rates after hip fracture.
