A critical appraisal of the benefits of minimally invasive surgery (
Patients undergoing appendicectomy, colectomy, inguinal hernia repair, hysterectomy and prostatectomy were identified in the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database. Non‐parsimonious propensity score methods were used to construct procedure‐specific matched‐pair cohorts that reduced baseline differences between patients who underwent
Of the 532 287 patients identified, 53·8 per cent underwent
