STARSurg 1 (2013-14)

The STARSurg network has previously delivered the world’s first student-led multicentre study. Over 250 medical students and 100 junior doctors participated across 109 hospital centres to collect data on over 1500 patients undergoing gastrointestinal resection to investigate non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) as risk factors for postoperative adverse events.
