Journal Review in Surgical Education: Intersection of Leadership and Wellness in Education
2022/06/16
The grind of surgical training has been celebrated in the past, but to what end? With mounting evidence that supports a high prevalence of burnout in the surgical community, surgical educators and leaders are often called to develop initiatives to address the detrimental and potentially irreversible effects on trainees’ wellness during surgical training. We invite Dr. David Rogers, who has personally experienced burnout, to share his insight and expertise in improving workplace wellness. Spoiler: it’s not as easy as group yoga sessions and daily donuts. Hosts: Dr. David Rogers Dr. Jeremy Lipman Dr. Judith French Dr. Amy Han Learning Objectives 1.     Listeners will be able to define wellness in the context of surgical training. 2.     Listeners will be able to better characterize and recognize signs of burnout among surgeons and surgical trainees. 3.     Listeners will be able identify strategies for overcoming burnout.  4.     Listeners will be able to apply conceptual frameworks from workplace wellness outside of medicine that can guide developing effective programs that promote wellness in surgical education community.

Journal Review in Hepatobiliary Surgery: Genomics of Colorectal Liver Metastasis
2022/06/13
Colorectal liver metastasis (CRLM) is a complex clinical situation requiring multidisciplinary management. In this episode from the Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary team at Behind the Knife, we review the genomics of CRLM, discuss a journal article investigating the frequency and impact of these mutations on survival in patients with stage IV disease, and interview the senior author Dr. Jean-Nicholas Vauthey about this research and his career in HPB. Hosts: Timothy Vreeland, MD, FACS (@vreelant) is an Associate Professor of Surgery at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences and Surgical Oncologist at Brooke Army Medical Center Daniel Nelson, DO, FACS (@usarmydoc24) is an Associate Professor of Surgery at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences and Surgical Oncologist at William Beaumont Army Medical Center Connor Chick, MD (@connor_chick) is a PGY-5 General Surgery resident at Brooke Army Medical Center Lexy (Alexandra) Adams, MD, MPH (@lexyadams16) is a PGY-4 General Surgery resident at Brooke Army Medical Center Beth (Elizabeth) Carpenter, MD (@elizcarpenter16) is a PGY-3 General Surgery resident at Brooke Army Medical Center Guest: Jean-Nicholas Vauthey, MD (@VautheyMD) is a Professor of Surgical Oncology, Chief of HPB, and Dallas/Fort Worth Living Legend Chair for Cancer Research at MD Anderson.  He is the Principal Investigator of the study discussed in the episode in addition to numerous other articles describing the genomics of colorectal liver metastases. Learning Objectives: In this episode, we review basic mutations found in metastatic colorectal cancer and broadly discuss these in a clinical context.  We review a journal article from Kawaguchi et al. in which authors analyze prognostic relevance of signaling pathways in patients undergoing resection of CRLM, later validated in an external cohort of unresected patients.  We conduct an interview with the senior author of the study regarding relevant methodologic details, next steps in his research, and how to apply this information now and in the future to the care of patients with CRLM.

Journal Review in Trauma Surgery: Imaging for Blunt Cerebrovascular Injury (BCVI)
2022/06/02
Determining when to order imaging for blunt cerebrovascular injury is a diagnostic quandary that has long engendered controversy. Today we discuss a paper that introduced universal CT angiogram of the neck to screen for BCVI in all blunt trauma patients and then compared the result to what would have happened if some of the current screening guidelines were utilized. Join us as we discuss their fascinating results and what it means for blunt trauma patients going forward. Hosts:  Elliott R. Haut, MD, Ph.D., a senior, nationally recognized name in trauma and acute care surgery at Johns Hopkins University. Dr. Haut is a past president of The Eastern Association for the Surgery of Trauma (EAST).  Marcie Feinman, MD, MEHP, the current program director of General Surgery Residency at Sinai Hospital of Baltimore and editorial board member of SCORE.
