Recent studies have demonstrated the relationship between clinical outcomes of complex surgical procedures and provider volume. Hepatic resection is one such high-risk surgical procedure. The aim of this analysis was to determine whether mortality and cost of performing hepatic resection are related to surgical volume while also examining outcomes by extent of resection and diagnosis, variables seen with this procedure. Maryland discharge data were used to study surgical volume, length of stay… CONTINUE READING
