J Surg Oncol. 2016 Sep;114(3):316-22 Authors: Kim BJ, Aloia TA Abstract Palliative care is an essential component to multidisciplinary cancer care. Improved symptom control, quality of life (QOL), and survival have resulted from its utilization. Cost-effectiveness and utility analyses are significant variables that should be considered in comparing benefits and costs of medical interventions to determine if certain treatments are economically justified.

Value in palliative cancer surgery: A critical assessment.

Related Articles Value in palliative cancer surgery: A critical assessment. J Surg Oncol. 2016 Sep;114(3):311-5 Authors: Folkert IW, Roses RE Abstract Emergency operations are associated with increased morbidity, mortality, and cost compared to elective operations. Palliative and emergent surgery for patients with advanced malignancies is associated with additional risk and remains controversial. Emergent or palliative interventions can be broadly categorized according to indication. Tumor related complications (bleeding, obstruction, or perforation) merit specific consideration, as do specific presentations such as pneumoperitoneum, pneumatosis intestinalis, or peritonitis from other causes that may arise during active therapy for malignancies. Although nonoperative, endoscopic, and interventional…
