Abstract

Annals of Surgery  Volume 267, Number 3, March 2018 Letters to the Editor shows that primary service is not independ- current study, the operative group was A Highly Predictive Model ently associated with readmission in operative smaller in size than the nonoperative group, management outcomes (incidence rate ratio and there were fewer patients managed by a for Diagnosis of Colorectal [IRR] ¼ 1.13, 95% confidence interval 0.97– primary medical team than a surgical team if Neoplasms Using Plasma 1.32). they underwent operative intervention. Therefore, smaller, but real, differences in MicroRNA: Improving Disclosure: The authors declare no readmission between primary medical and Specificity and Sensitivity conflicts of interest. surgical teams were less likely to reach stat- istical significance, thus increasing the chan- ces of a type II error (‘‘false negative’’). Sean Nurmsoo, MSc Furthermore, given the high incidence of Department of Community Health and adhesive-SBO admissions, small differences To the Editor: Epidemiology in the rate of readmission, which can be e read with great interest the recent Dalhousie University associated with substantial cost, may have W article by Carter et al.
