Abstract

Liver surgery has developed significantly in the past decades. In Brazil, the interest on it has grown significantly, but there is no study regarding its clinical practice. Despite intrinsic limitations, surveys are well suited to descriptive studies and allow understanding the current scenario. To provide an overview on the current spread of liver surgery in Brazil, focusing on groups´ profile, operative techniques and availability of resources. From May to November 2016, was conducted a national survey about liver surgery profile in Brazil composed by 28 questions concerning surgical team characteristics, technical preferences, surgical volume, results and available institutional resources. The survey was sent by e-mail to 84 liver surgery team leaders from different centers including all regions of the country. Forty-three study participants (51.2%), from all Brazilian regions, responded the survey. Most centers have residency/fellowship programs (86%), perform and do laparoscopic procedures (91%); however, laparoscopy is still responsible for a little amount of surgeries (1-9% of laparoscopic procedures over all liver resections in 39.5% of groups). Only seven centers (16.3%) perform more than 50 liver resections/year. Postoperative mortality rate is between 1-3% in 55% of the centers. This is the first depiction of liver surgery in Brazil. It showed a surgical practice aligned with worldwide excellence centers, concentrated on hospitals dedicated to academic practice.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 28 June 2018.
All research outputs
#11,683,569
of 13,153,703 outputs
Outputs from ABCD. Arquivos Brasileiros de Cirurgia Digestiva (São Paulo)
#63
of 106 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#233,484
of 268,812 outputs
Outputs of similar age from ABCD. Arquivos Brasileiros de Cirurgia Digestiva (São Paulo)
#2
of 3 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,153,703 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 106 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.4. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 268,812 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 3 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one.
