    Description: This study examines the impact of marriage and next of kin identity on timing of diagnosis, treatment, and survival in cancer patients. Retrospective review of patients with 5 solid tumor types treated at an academic medical center from 2002 to 2012. Exposures of interest were marriage status at time of diagnosis and familial relationship with next of kin (NOK). Association with overall survival determined via Cox regressions and with early diagnosis (stage I to II) and receipt of surgery via logistic regressions. Marriage was not associated with early diagnosis for any cancer type. After adjustment, being married was associated with significantly higher odds of receiving surgery only for pancreatic cancer and with improved survival for breast and lung cancers. Having a nuclear relationship with NOK was not associated with any outcomes. Marriage status was associated with improved outcomes for certain cancers whereas familial relationship with NOK was not.

    Description: Byline: Lindsay A. Bliss (1), Catherine J. Yang (1), Tara S. Kent (1), Sing Chau Ng (1), Jonathan F. Critchlow (1), Jennifer F. Tseng (1) Keywords: Appendectomy; Acute appendicitis; NIS; Laparoscopy; Complications Abstract: Background Acute appendicitis is the second most common gastrointestinal diagnosis mandating urgent operation in the U.S. The current state of adult appendectomy, including patient and hospital characteristics, complications, and predictors for complications, are unknown. Methods Retrospective review of U.S. Nationwide Inpatient Sample 2003--2011 for appendectomy in a[yen]18-year-olds was performed. Primary outcomes measures included postoperative complications, length of stay, and patient mortality. Categorical variables were analyzed by [chi]2, trend analyses by Cochran--Armitage. Multivariable logistic regression was performed to adjust for predictors of developing complications. Results 1,663,238 weighted appendectomy discharges occurred. Over the study period, complications increased from 3.2 to 3.8 % (p 〈 0.0001), but the overall mortality decreased from 0.14 to 0.09 % (p 〈 0.0001) and mean LOS decreased from 3.1 to 2.6 days (p 〈 0.0001). The proportion of laparoscopic appendectomy increased over time, 41.7--80.1 % (p 〈 0.0001). Patients were increasingly older (a[yen]65 years: 9.4--11.6 %, p 〈 0.0001), more obese (3.8--8.9 %, p 〈 0.0001), and with more comorbidities (Elixhauser score a[yen]3: 4.7--9.8 %, p 〈 0.0001). After adjustment, independent predictors for postoperative complications included: open surgery (OR 1.5, 95 % C.I. 1.4--1.5), male sex (OR 1.6, 95 % CI 1.5--1.6), black race (vs. white: OR 1.5, 95 % CI 1.4--1.6), perforated appendix (OR 2.8, 95 % CI 2.7--3.0), greater comorbidity (Elixhauser a[yen]3 vs. 0, OR 11.3, 95 % CI 10.5--12.1), non-private insurance status (vs. private: Medicaid OR 1.3, 95 % CI 1.2--1.4 Medicare OR 1.7, 95 % CI 1.6--1.8), increasing age (〉52 years vs. a[currency]27: OR 1.3 95 % CI 1.2--1.4), and hospital volume (vs. high: low OR 1.2 95 % CI 1.1--1.3). Predictors of laparoscopic appendectomy were age, ethnicity, insurance status, comorbidities, and hospital location. Conclusions Laparoscopic appendectomy is increasing but is unevenly deployed across patient groups. Appendectomy patients were increasingly older, with more comorbidities and with increasing rates of obesity. Black patients and patients with public insurance had less utilization of laparoscopy and inferior outcomes.

    Description: Bile duct reconstruction (BDR) is used to manage benign and malignant neoplasms, congenital anomalies, bile duct injuries and other non-malignant diseases. BDR outcomes overall, by year, and by indication were compared. Retrospective analysis of Nationwide Inpatient Sample discharges (2004–2011) including ICD-9 codes for BDR. All statistical testing was performed using survey weighting. Univariate analysis of admission characteristics by chi square testing. Multivariate modelling for inpatient complications and inpatient death by logistic regression. Identified 67 160 weighted patient admissions: 2.5% congenital anomaly, 37.4% malignant neoplasm, 2.3% benign neoplasm, 9.9% biliary injury, 47.9% other non-malignant disease. Most BDRs were performed in teaching hospitals (69.6%) but only 25% at centres with a BDR volume more than 35/year. 32.3% involved ≥ 1 complication, and 84.7% were discharges home. There was a 4.2% inpatient death rate. The complication rate increased but the inpatient death rate decreased over time. The rates of acute renal failure increased. Significant multivariate predictors of inpatient death include indication of biliary injury or malignancy, and predictors of any complication include public insurance and non-elective admission. This is the first national description of BDRs using a large database. In this diverse sampling, both procedure indication and patient characteristics influence morbidity and mortality.
