Abstract

Objective: To identify unplanned emergency resource utilization in the perioperative period following bariatric surgery. Summary of Background Data: Avoidable emergency department (ED) utilization and hospital readmissions pose a significant economic burden to our healthcare system. The extent of this problem is poorly studied in the bariatric literature. Methods: Using New York statewide longitudinal administrative data, 38,776 patients, who underwent primary bariatric surgery from 2010 to 2013, were analyzed. Multiple logistic regression models analyzed all variables with P
