Morphometric age and mortality after liver transplant.
IMPORTANCE Morphometric assessment has emerged as a strong predictor of postoperative morbidity and mortality. However, a gap exists in translating this knowledge to bedside decision making. WeExpand

Abdominal adiposity, body composition and survival after liver transplantation
Current measures of obesity do not accurately describe body composition. Using cross‐sectional imaging, objective measures of musculature and adiposity are possible and may inform efforts to optimizeExpand

The Importance of Improving the Quality of Emergency Surgery for a Regional Quality Collaborative
Introduction:Within a large, statewide collaborative, significant improvement in surgical quality has been appreciated (9.0% reduction in morbidity for elective general and vascular surgery). OurExpand

Dorsal muscle group area and surgical outcomes in liver transplantation
Better measures of liver transplant risk stratification are needed. Our previous work noted a strong relationship between psoas muscle area and survival following liver transplantation. The dorsalExpand

Temporalis muscle morphomics: the psoas of the craniofacial skeleton.
BACKGROUND The psoas muscle has been shown to predict patient outcomes based on the quantification of muscle area using computed tomography (CT) scans. The accuracy of morphomic analysis on otherExpand

Analytic morphomics corresponds to functional status in older patients.
BACKGROUND Older patients account for nearly half of the United States surgical volume, and age alone is insufficient to predict surgical fitness. Various metrics exist for risk stratification, butExpand

Cigarette smoking in living kidney donors: donor and recipient outcomes
Living kidney donor pools are expanding with the use of “medically complex” donors. Whether or not to include cigarette smokers as living kidney donors remains unclear. The aim of this study was toExpand

Analytic morphomics identifies predictors of new‐onset diabetes after liver transplantation
Among liver transplant recipients, development of post‐transplant complications such as new‐onset diabetes after transplantation (NODAT) is common and highly morbid. Current methods of predictingExpand

One-year postoperative resource utilization in sarcopenic patients.
BACKGROUND It is well established that sarcopenic patients are at higher risk of postoperative complications and short-term health care utilization. Less well understood is how these patients fareExpand
