Abstract

Background

This study aimed to determine whether (1) the propensity for concurrent fundoplication during gastrostomy varies among hospitals, and (2) postoperative morbidity differs among institutions performing fundoplication more or less frequently.

Methods

Children who underwent gastrostomy with or without concurrent fundoplication were identified in the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program Pediatric (ACS-NSQIP-P). A hierarchical multivariate regression modeled the excess effects that hospitals exerted over propensity for concurrent fundoplication adjusting for preoperative clinical variables. Hospitals were designated as low outliers (significantly lower-adjusted odds of concurrent fundoplication than the average hospital with similar patient mix), average hospitals, and high outliers based on their risk-adjusted concurrent fundoplication practice. The postoperative morbidity rates were compared among low-outlier, average, and high-outlier hospitals.

Results

Between 2011 and 2013, 3775 children underwent gastrostomy at one of 54 ACS-NSQIP-P participating hospitals. The mean hospital concurrent fundoplication rate was 11.7% (range 0–64%). There was no significant difference in unadjusted morbidity rate in children with concurrent fundoplication, 11.0% compared to 9.7% in children without concurrent fundoplication. After controlling for clinical variables, 8 hospitals were identified as low outliers (fundoplication rate of 0.4%) and 16 hospitals were identified as high outliers (fundoplication rate of 34.6%). The average unadjusted morbidity rate among hospitals with low, average, and high odds of concurrent fundoplication were 9.6, 10.6, and 8.4%, respectively.

Conclusion

Hospitals vary significantly in propensity for concurrent fundoplication during gastrostomy yet postoperative morbidity does not differ significantly among institutions performing fundoplication more or less frequently.
