Analysis of surgery rates among 25 national collegiate athletic association sports

Authors: Amir Taree, MD-candidate, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai; Daniel Charen, MD, Orthopedic Resident PGY- 5, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai; Hsin-Hui Huang, MD, PhD, MS, MPH, Biostatistician, Institute for Health Care Delivery Science, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai; Jashvant Poeran, MD, PhD, Associate Professor, Population Health Science and Policy, Orthopedic Surgery, and Medicine, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai; Alexis Chiang Colvin, MD, Professor, Orthopedic Surgery, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai

Objective: While injuries among collegiate athletes are common and well-studied, there have been no studies comparing which sports and injury types have the highest operation rates. This information would be valuable for athlete governing bodies and providers to improve player safety. Our hypothesis was the surgery incidence rates vary substantially between sports and injury types, with football and knee injuries representing the sport and injury type with the highest respective surgery rates.

Authors: Daniel Ranti, MD-candidate, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai; Andrew J. Warburton, MD-candidate, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai; Katie Hanss, MD/MPH-candidate, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai; Daniel Katz, MD, Associate Professor, Anesthesiology, Perioperative & Pain Medicine, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai; Jashvant Poeran, MD, PhD, Associate Professor, Population Health Science and Policy, Orthopedic Surgery, and Medicine, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai; Calin S. Moucha, MD, Associate Professor, Orthopedic Surgery, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai

Objective: The role of preoperative laboratory values for risk stratification following joint arthroplasty is currently ambiguous. In order to improve upon existing risk stratification within joint arthroplasty, this study sought to define novel phenotypes of total hip or total knee arthroplasty patients based entirely on preoperative laboratory measures. These phenotypes ("clusters") were compared to elucidate statistically and clinically significant differences in outcomes.

Moucha, MD, Associate Professor, Orthopedic Surgery, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai

Objective: Bundled payment models may lead to selection of healthier total joint arthroplasty (TJA) candidates resulting in comorbid patients being taken care of in fewer hospitals. This study aimed to (1) evaluate hospital-specific TJA comorbidity burden ("casemix") over time and (2) associations with resource utilization.

Trends in Periprosthetic Knee Infection and Associated Costs: A Population-Based Study Using National Data

Authors: Robert Brochin, MD, Orthopedic Surgery, Cleveland Clinic; Jashvant Poeran, MD, PhD, Associate Professor, Population Health Science and Policy, Orthopedic Surgery, and Medicine, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai; Khushdeep Vig, MD, Orthopaedic Surgery Resident PGY-3, Albany Medical Center; Aakash H. Keswani, MD, Orthopedic Resident PGY- 2, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai; Nicole Zubizarreta, MPH, Senior Data Analyst, Institute for Health Care Delivery Science, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai; Leesa M. Galatz, MD, Professor and Chair, Orthopedic Surgery, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai; Calin S. Moucha, MD, Associate Professor, Orthopedic Surgery, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai

Objective: Given increasing demand for primary knee arthroplasties, revision surgery is also expected to increase, with periprosthetic joint infection (PJI) a main driver of costs. Recent data on national trends is lacking. We aimed to assess trends in PJI in total knee arthroplasty revisions and hospitalization costs. From the National Inpatient Sample (2003-2016), we extracted data on total knee arthroplasty revisions (n = 782,449). We assessed trends in PJI prevalence and (inflation-adjusted) hospitalization costs (total as well as per-day costs) for all revisions and stratified by hospital teaching status (rural/urban by teaching status), hospital bed size (≤299, 300-499, and ≥500 beds), and hospital region (Northeast, Midwest, South, and West).

Impact of Increasing Comorbidity Burden on Resource Utilization in Patients With Proximal Humerus Fractures

Authors: Daniel A. London, MD, MS, Hand Surgery Fellow, University of Cincinnati; Paul J Cagle, Jr., MD, Associate Professor, Orthopedic Surgery, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai; Bradford O. Parsons, MD, Professor, Orthopedic Surgery, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai; Leesa M. Galatz, MD, Professor and Chair, Orthopedic Surgery, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai; Shawn G. Anthony, MD, MBA, Assistant Professor, Orthopedic Surgery, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai; Nicole Zubizarreta, MPH, Senior Data Analyst, Institute for Health Care Delivery Science, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai; Madhu Mazumdar, PhD, Director, Institute for Health Care Delivery Science, and Professor, Population Health Science and Policy, and Orthopedics, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai; Jashvant Poeran, MD, PhD, Associate Professor, Population Health Science and Policy, Orthopedic Surgery, and Medicine, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai

Objective: Proximal humerus fractures (PHF) are a common upper extremity fracture in the elderly cohort. An aging and more comorbid cohort, along with recent trends of increased operative intervention, suggests that there could be an increase in resource utilization caring for these patients. This study sought to quantify these trends and quantify the impact that comorbidity burden has on resource utilization.
