Complications of Endocrine Surgery: Data From the United HealthSystem Consortium
The goal of this study is to help better determine the complication rates for endocrine surgery across the nation for both benign and malignant disease. It is our hypothesis that the complication rates are low overall and that malignant disease results in a higher complication rate than benign disease. This study will do a database review from all University HealthSystem Consortium (UHC).
