Correlation between annual volume of cystectomy, professional staffing, and outcomes
The association between high procedure volume and lower perioperative mortality is well established among cancer patients who undergo cystectomy, but the authors studied hospital factors that contribute to the volume‐outcome correlation. Expand
Clinical model of lifetime cost of treating bladder cancer and associated complications.
The management of bladder cancer and its associated complications results in a major economic burden and more cost-effective surveillance strategies and approaches for preventing complications are crucial to minimizing the disease's clinical and economic consequences. Expand
Effect of an enhanced medical home on serious illness and cost of care among high-risk children with chronic illness: a randomized clinical trial.
Findings from a single site of selected patients with a limited number of clinicians require study in larger, broader populations before conclusions about generalizability to other settings can be reached. Expand

Outpatient management of low-risk patients with FN is as safe and effective as inpatient management for low- risk patients and is significantly less costly. Expand
Outcomes and cost of deep venous thrombosis among patients with cancer.
More effective agents and less costly management strategies could have a significant impact on the outcomes and cost of DVT in this population of cancer patients. Expand
Generalizability of cancer clinical trial results
The authors examined the comparability of clinical trial participants and nonparticipants and the potential impact of differences, and found that among cancer patients, fewer than 5% of cancer patients participate in clinical trials. Expand

The findings demonstrate that mucosal toxicity remains an important complication of cancer treatment, and innovations in drug combinations, scheduling, or mode of administration significantly modulate the risk for both oral and GI mucositis. Expand
Scope and epidemiology of cancer therapy-induced oral and gastrointestinal mucositis.
An awareness of the risk factors associated with mucositis will allow nurses to identify cancer patients at greatest risk and incorporate supportive care measures into their management plans. Expand
Epidemiology and outcomes of serious influenza‐related infections in the cancer population
The epidemiology and outcomes of potentially preventable, serious influenza‐related infections in patients with cancer and the implications for vaccination are described. Expand
Robotic versus laparoscopic ventral hernia repair: multicenter, blinded randomized controlled trial
This study found no evidence of a difference in 90 day postoperative hospital days between robotic and laparoscopic ventral hernia repair, however, robotic repair increased operative duration and healthcare costs. Expand
