VIDEO: A look at patient outcomes for a single institution’s overlapping vs. non-overlapping neurosurgical cases

At the Congress of Neurological Surgeons Annual Meeting, Corinna C. Zygourakis, MD, discussed differences in operative time and patient outcomes identified in a retrospective study of neurosurgical cases performed in overlapping and non-overlapping ORs from 2012 to 2015 in the department of neurosurgery at University of California San Francisco. Among their findings, she and colleagues identified a significant difference in the types of cases performed in an overlapping vs. a non-overlapping OR setting, with more overlapping spine cases being of a routine nature.
