BACKGROUND Surgical mortality data are collected routinely in high-income countries, yet virtually no low- or middle-income countries have outcome surveillance in place. [] Key MethodMETHODS This was a prospective, multicentre, cohort study. Self-selected hospitals performing emergency surgery submitted prespecified data for consecutive patients from at least one 2-week interval during July to December 2014. Postoperative mortality was analysed by hierarchical multivariable logistic regression.
Twenty‐year study of in‐hospital and postdischarge mortality following emergency general surgical admission
TLDR
The aim of this study was to conduct a comprehensive, population‐based analysis of mortality in EGS patients over a 20‐year time frame.
Determinants of morbidity and mortality following emergency abdominal surgery in children in low-income and middle-income countries
TLDR
Appendectomy, small bowel resection, pyloromyotomy and correction of intussusception were the most common operations performed, and child mortality at 30 days was significantly higher in low- HDI and middle-HDI countries compared with high-HDi countries.
Systematic review of the use of big data to improve surgery in low‐ and middle‐income countries
TLDR
The extent and impact of programmes that use large volumes of patient data on surgical care in LMICs and what barriers exist to the use of such data in improving surgical care are captured.

TLDR
A laparoscopic approach is associated with better outcomes and availability appears to differ by country HDI; despite the profound clinical, operational, and financial barriers to its widespread introduction, laparoscopy could significantly improve outcomes for patients in low-resource environments.

Determining universal processes related to best outcome in emergency abdominal surgery: a multicentre, international, prospective cohort study
TLDR
A novel approach to investigating global surgical outcomes is proposed, involving collaborative methodology using ‘snapshot’ clinical data collection over a 2-week period, to identify internationally relevant, modifiable surgical practices associated with best care for emergency abdominal surgery.

TLDR
POMR reporting is feasible, credible, achieves a consensus of acceptance for reporting at national level, and should be reported as a health indicator by all countries and regions of the world.
