Early Cholecystectomy Safely Decreases Hospital Stay in Patients With Mild Gallstone Pancreatitis: A Randomized Prospective Study
In mild gallstone pancreatitis, laparoscopic cholecystectomy performed within 48 hours of admission, regardless of the resolution of abdominal pain or laboratory abnormalities, results in a shorter hospital length of stay with no apparent impact on the technical difficulty of the procedure or perioperative complication rate.
Preoperative versus postoperative endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography in mild to moderate gallstone pancreatitis: a prospective randomized trial.
In patients with mild to moderate gallstone pancreatitis without cholangitis, selective postoperative ERCP and CBD stone extraction is associated with a shorter hospital stay, less cost, no increase in combined treatment failure rate, and significant reduction in ERCp use compared with routine preoperative E RCP.
A simple model to help distinguish necrotizing fasciitis from nonnecrotizing soft tissue infection.
Factors associated with general surgery residents' desire to leave residency programs: a multi-institutional study.
T thoughts of leaving seem to be associated with work conditions on specific rotations rather than with overall work hours and are more prevalent among programs with historically high attrition rates.
Predicting performance on the American Board of Surgery qualifying and certifying examinations: a multi-institutional study.
Residents who are more likely to fail the ABS qualifying and certifying examinations can be identified by a low USMLE Step 1 score and by poor performance on the ABSITE at any time during residency.

Early laparoscopic cholecystectomy for mild gallstone pancreatitis: time for a paradigm shift.
An early laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) within 48 hours of hospital admission may be safely performed for patients with mild gallstone pancreatitis, resulting in shortened hospital stays and a decrease in the use of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography.
