  • Review of risk assessment tools to predict morbidity and mortality in elderly surgical patients. [Review]
  • AJAm J Surg 2018 Apr 18
  • Eamer G, Al-Amoodi MJH, … Khadaroo RG
  • CONCLUSIONS: We identified risk assessment tools that can improve surgical risk assessment in elderly surgical patients. The majority of the identified tools are not commonly used for pre-operative risk assessment. NSQIP-PMP, mFI and SURPAS are promising tools. Age is commonly used to predict risk, but frailty may be a more appropriate measure.
  • Blunt splenic injury during colonoscopy: Is it as rare as we think? [Journal Article]
  • AJAm J Surg 2018 May 12
  • Andrade EG, Olufajo OA, … Punch LJ
  • CONCLUSIONS: Although blunt splenic injury is an infrequently reported complication of colonoscopy, it can result in high-grade injury requiring transfusion and invasive treatment due to significant hemorrhage. As previously reported, we demonstrate a high rate of PCBSI in women over 55 with a history of prior abdominal surgery. These data suggest that a high index of suspicion for splenic injury post-colonoscopy should be present in this population.
