Abstract

Purpose: Discharge patterns, including rates of prolonged length of stay and transfer to a facility, were evaluated in the context of radical cystectomy. Materials and Methods: Within the Nationwide Inpatient Sample we focused on radical cystectomy performed between 1998 and 2007. Multivariable logistic regression analyses predicting the likelihood of prolonged length of stay or transfer to a facility were performed. Results: Overall 11,876 eligible radical cystectomy cases were identified. The rates of prolonged length of stay decreased from 59% in the early period (1998 to 2001) to 50% in the late period (2005 to 2007, p
