Forecasting The Impact of the 2023 Current Procedural Terminology Coding Changes On Ventral Hernia Work Relative Value Units. A Cross-Sectional Study

Surgery Journal

Mazen R. Al-Mansour, et. al


In January 2023, significant changes were implemented to ventral hernia repair Current Procedural Terminology codes, with new codes replacing previous codes. The new codes were assigned a 0-day global period. The impact of these changes on clinical productivity remains unclear. Our objective was to forecast the impact of Current Procedural Terminology changes on ventral hernia-related work relative value units using historical data.

Gender, racial, and socioeconomic disparity of preoperative optimization goals in ventral hernia repair

Surgical Endoscopy

Mazen R. Al-Mansour, et. al


Preoperative optimization cut-offs are frequently utilized to determine eligibility for elective ventral hernia repair. Our objective was to assess the relationship between gender, race, and socioeconomic status and preoperative optimization goals. We queried our institutional database for adults with ventral hernia diagnoses between 2016 and 2021. Demographics, comorbidities, laboratory, and operative data were collected and analyzed.

However, the effects of smoking status on inguinal hernia repair outcomes have not been extensively studied. Hence, we investigated the association between smoking status and short-term adverse outcomes following inguinal hernia repair.
