Disparities in healthcare are prevalent in the United States, with various sociodemographic factors being documented as significant contributors. Sarah J Phillips @sarahphillipsmed and her co-authors from @yaleplasticsurgery assessed the effects of race and ethnicity on the surgical outcomes following benign craniomaxillofacial (CMF) tumor removal. Using the American College of Surgeons (ACS) National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (NSQIP) database, her and her co-authors found that Black race was a risk factor for poorer short-term outcomes following surgery. Compared to White patients, Black patients had a 4-fold increase in minor complications, 6-fold increase in major complications, and 3-fold increase in length of hospital stay. It is critical that healthcare professionals are educated in the various underlying causes behind these racial disparities.
