Evaluation of short-term outcomes following overlapping urologic surgery at a large academic medical center
Urology Jan 31, 2020
Glauser G, et al. - Researchers intended to evaluate the impact of overlapping surgery on the risk of adverse outcomes in urologic surgery. They applied coarsened exact matching to evaluate the impact of overlap on outcomes amongst urologic surgical interventions ( n = 4853) over two years (2013-2015) at one health system. They divided overlap as any overlap, beginning overlap or end overlap. They matched study subjects (1:1) on eleven clinically relevant variables. During follow-up, overlap individuals revealed no difference in mortality. They studied serious unanticipated events. The results showed that non-concurrent overlapping surgery is not correlated with adverse outcomes in a large, matched urologic surgery population across one academic health system.Go to Original
