Fukushima University Back Door Data Shows Surgeons Are Getting A Lot More Practice

@Jec, TIS, shaker1-
Since medical data from Fukushima University is unreliable, blogger 4_sea compiled data using a loophole: by looking up a website 'caloo' which surveys 'surgery success rates' (kind of like an 'Angie's list' for surgery) and pulling data of Fukushima University Hospital from there.
This compares 2011, 2012 & 2013 data- charts were created with 2011 numbers as the starting point 100%
(I've been translating what each chart is.. more than halway thru..)

bo bo
1.Malignant tumors of the thyroid
2.non-traumatic cranial hematoma
3.cataract , the lens disease
5.retinal detachment
6.Diabetic proliferative retinopathy
7.Macula, Bian of the posterior pole
10. Glass body disorders (? Jellyfish babies..?)
11.Disease of the choroid
12. neoplasm of the head & neck
13.Peritonsillar abscess , acute tonsillitis , acute pharyngitis laryngitis
14.Malignant tumor in the lungs
15. Pneumothorax

bo bo
16. Angina pectoris , chronic ischemic heart disease
17. irregular pulse
18.Valvular disease ( disease of heart valve)
19.Vein – lymphatic disease
20.Occlusive arterial disease
21. esophageal malignancies (including neck )
22. Malignant tumor in stomach
23. Malignant tumors of the small intestine & peritoneal malignancies
24. Malignant tumor of the large intestine (S -shaped colon from the ascending colon)
25. Malignant tumor of rectum anus ( anal from rectum · S -shaped colon )
26. Malignant tumor of the liver and intrahepatic bile duct (including the secondary tumors after remission )
27. Gallbladder , malignant tumor of the extrahepatic bile duct
28. pancreas , spleen tumors
29. Benign disease of the small intestine large intestine (including benign tumors )
30. Esophagus, stomach, duodenum, other intestinal inflammation (other benign disease)

I couldn't figure out some of the medical terms.. let me know if any needs fixing..

bo that's great…but the list, is it giving a success rate from top being the lowest success (or highest) or something like that? Anyway, thank you. Sorry I'm so dense. :)

Thanks for the question LC – the numbers only show how many 'procedures' were performed to fix these health problems at Fuku Univ.
The blogger figured, that's a good way to peek into how much health issues increased after 2011.

For example the first chart says
The number there under the headline shows how many surgeries for malignant tumors of the thyroid were performed 2011, 2012, 2013 & 2014
( Just this first chart includes 2014 number as well )

Oh OK…got it.

  1. Bo, thank you. Heart breaking. WHY is this data being so hidden? To protect the guilty I guess. @jec
