The aim of the study was to investigate the impact of hospital caseload on the short‐term postoperative outcome of patients with rectal carcinoma.

TLDR
The outcome of rectal cancer surgery in Denmark during the period 1994–99 was analyzed to analyse the association between hospital volumen and outcome of major cancer surgery.
Volume–outcome analysis of colorectal cancer‐related outcomes
TLDR
The effect of hospital volume on short‐term outcomes and survival is examined, adjusting for the effect of surgeon caseload.

Influence of hospital‐ and surgeon‐related factors on outcome after treatment of rectal cancer with or without preoperative radiotherapy
TLDR
The Stockholm Rectal Cancer Study Group has conducted two prospective randomized trials on preoperative radiotherapy in rectal cancer, finding that radiotherapy reduces recurrence rates after surgery forrectal cancer.
Influence of volume of work on the outcome of treatment for patients with colorectal cancer
TLDR
The influence of both hospital and surgical workload has been examined using a population‐based series of patients with colorectal cancer to highlight the importance of a ‘minimal acceptable volume of work’.
Effect of the introduction of total mesorectal excision for the treatment of rectal cancer
TLDR
The problems that have arisen with the introduction of this new surgical technique to reduce local recurrence and improve survival rates in patients with rectal carcinoma are reported.

TLDR
To assess whether there is evidence that the surgeon is a prognostic factor in the treatment of colorectal cancer, a large number of patients are referred to the surgeon for exploratory surgery.

TLDR
The surgeon's technique and skill has to focus on prevention of locoregional recurrence to achieve good long-term outcome after curative resection for rectal carcinoma.
Relation of perioperative deaths to hospital volume among patients undergoing pancreatic resection for malignancy.
TLDR
Data from 1972 patients who had undergone pancreaticoduodenectomy or total pancreatectomy for malignancy in New York State between 1984 and 1991 support a defined minimum hospital experience for elective pancreatic resection for maligne to minimize perioperative deaths.
Importance of hospital volume in the overall management of pancreatic cancer.
TLDR
Patients with pancreatic cancer who are to be treated with curative or palliative procedures appear to benefit from referral to a high-volume provider, and increased hospital volume is associated with markedly decreased in-hospital mortality rates and a decreased or similar length of stay for all three types of procedures and with decreases or similar hospital charges for resections and stents.

TLDR
The data support the importance of application of principles of radical surgery and gives evidence for the outstanding importance of surgery for the prognosis of colonic carcinoma.
The importance of surgeon experience for clinical and economic outcomes from thyroidectomy.
TLDR
Individual surgeon experience is significantly associated with complication rates and length of stay for thyroidectomy, and they were more likely to operate on patients with cancer.
