abstract

  • Specific age-related preoperative factors help predict readmission in elderly adults undergoing colorectal cancer surgery. Results of the nonparametric CART analysis are better than traditional regression analysis and help physicians to clinically stratify based on age. This model may help identify individuals in whom intervention may be helpful in reducing readmission after surgery.
