Abstract

Background: We sought to identify differences among black and white Medicare-insured patients with colorectal cancer who underwent resection. Methods: Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results-Medicare (SEER-Medicare) linked inpatient data from 1986 to 2005 were examined. Differences in short- and long-term outcomes among black vs white patients were investigated. Results: There were 125,676 (92.4%) white and 9,891 (7.6%) black patients who met the criteria. Black patients were younger (75.5 vs 77.2 years; P
