Abstract

Purpose To examine the effect of annual surgical caseload (ASC) on contemporary in-hospital pneumonia (IHP) rates and three other in-hospital outcomes after radical prostatectomy (RP). Methods Between 1999 and 2008, 34,490 open RPs were performed in the state of Florida. First, logistic regression models predicting the rate of IHP were fitted. Second, other logistic regression models examined the association between IHP and three other outcomes: in-hospital mortality, hospital charges within the highest quartile, and length of stay (LOS) within the highest quartile. Covariates included ASC, age, race, baseline Charlson Comorbidity Index (CCI), interval between admission and surgery, as well as blood transfusion. Results The overall IHP rate was 0.5%. It was higher in patients operated within the low (0.7%) and intermediate (0.5%) ASC tertile versus high ASC tertile (0.2%, P$37,333, and were 20-fold more likely to have a LOS >3 days (all P
