National Analysis of Unplanned Readmissions After Thoracoscopic Versus Open Lung Cancer Resection
Bhagat and colleagues analyzed the rate of unplanned hospital readmission from 2012 to 2015 using the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program Participant Use File. Thoracoscopic surgery was associated with a higher rate of postdischarge complications, a finding related to the shorter length of stay for these patients. Open surgery was associated with a higher rate of related unplanned readmissions, but after risk adjustment, open and thoracoscopic surgery readmissions were not different.
