  1. National trends in minimally invasive and open operative experience of graduating general surgery residents: implications for surgical skill...

    The American Journal of Surgery 202(6):720 (2011) PMID 22018766

    The results of this study demonstrate that general surgery residents in the United States are performing a greater number of minimally invasive and fewer open procedures for common surgical conditions. Copyright © 2011 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved....
  2. Esophageal salvage with removable covered self-expanding metal stents in the setting of intrathoracic esophageal leakage.

    The American Journal of Surgery 202(6):796 (2011) PMID 22137138

    We suggest that the use of covered self-expanding metal stents in patients with intrathoracic leak after esophageal perforation is safe and offers esophageal salvage in 77% regardless of time of presentation. Copyright © 2011. Published by Elsevier Inc....
  3. Cardiothoracic surgery

    The American Journal of Surgery 202(3):3 (2011) PMID 21871989

    Cardiothoracic surgeons provide care to neonates, children, adults, and the elderly with a range of disorders of the heart, lungs, esophagus, and major blood vessels of the chest. The field of cardiothoracic surgery continues to thrive among the transformations in thoracic and cardio...

  5. Negative appendectomy: a 10-year review of a nationally representative sample

    The American Journal of Surgery 201(4):5 (2011) PMID 21421095

    Appendectomy remains one of the most common emergency surgical procedures encountered throughout the United States. With improvements in diagnostic techniques, the efficiency of diagnosis has increased over the years. However, the entity of negative appendectomies still poses a dilemma because these...
  6. Vascular procedures in nonagenarians and centenarians are safe

    The American Journal of Surgery 201(3):4 (2011) PMID 21367367

    An increasing number of elderly patients present for elective and emergent vascular procedures. The purpose of this study was to analyze the 30-day and long-term outcome of patients in their 10th decade of life undergoing vascular procedures.
  7. Hashimoto's thyroiditis: Outcome of surgical resection for patients with thyromegaly and compressive symptoms

    The American Journal of Surgery 201(3):4 (2011) PMID 21367390

    The purpose of this study was to determine the indications and outcome of surgery in patients with Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT).
  8. Littoral cell angioma in main and accessory intrapancreatic spleen presenting as splenic rupture

    The American Journal of Surgery 201(2):0 (2011) PMID 20409532

    We report the incidental finding of a nodular mass in the pancreatic tail on a contrast-enhanced computed tomography scan preinterventional to emergency laparotomy for splenic rupture. Because of the past surgical history and radiologic appearance, differential diagnosis included atypical lymphoma i...
  9. Presidential Address: Imagination trumps knowledge

    The American Journal of Surgery 200(6):7 (2010) PMID 21146000

    We have proposed a series of cartoons that rallied multidisciplinary translational research teams around common themes to generate "win-win" hypotheses that when tested (right or wrong) have advanced our understanding of MOF. MOF has a bimodal trajectory, and the gut plays a role in both trajectorie...
  10. Does mitotic rate predict sentinel lymph node metastasis or survival in patients with intermediate and thick melanoma?

    The American Journal of Surgery 200(6):6 (2010) PMID 21146017

    The significance of mitotic rate (MR) in melanoma remains controversial. In this retrospective analysis of a prospective randomized trial that included patients with melanoma of 1.0 mm or greater, all patients underwent wide excision and sentinel node (sentinel lymph node [SLN]) biopsy. Univariate a...
