American Journal of Surgery article in press

Dr. Denny Yu et al.'s new article, "Impact of patient factors on operative duration during laparoscopic cholecystectomy: Evaluation from the National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (NSQIP) Database", will be published by the American Journal of Surgery.

Patient factors impact laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) difficulty, specifically operative duration. This study quantifies the impact of patient factors on LC duration.

The authors conclude that higher BMI, younger age, male gender, higher ASA, and abnormal LFTs are possible predictors of prolonged LC duration to aid in operating room scheduling and utilization.

The article is currently in press.
