Inverse relationship for mortality in high-volume hospitals is most consistent for surgical procedures for pancreatic resections and esophageal resections.
High-volume hospitals have lower operative mortality rates for pancreatic resection, esophagectomy, liver resection and pelvic exenteration.
Larger volume-outcome effects for cancer surgical procedures than for cardiovascular operations.
Not associated with appendiceal rupture rate but is inversely associated with negative appendectomy rates.
In a Medicare review admission to higher volume hospitals associated with a reduction in mortality rates for acute myocardial infarction, congestive heart failure and pneumonia (Ross JS).
Lower hospital treatment volume associated with poor survival in ALL (Maheswaran R).
30 day mortality rates for transcatheter aortic valve replacement are higher and more variable in hospitals with low procedural volume than in hospitals with a high procedural volume.
