A secondary aortoduodenal fistula is a rare but a severe late complication after prosthetic abdominal aortic surgery. Currently, there is little consensus regarding the right treatment due to high mortality and morbidity rates. We report the case of a haemodynamically unstable patient with haematemesis on the basis of a secondary aortoduodenal fistula. He was successfully treated by staged stent graft placement followed by surgical graft excision and autogenous deep vein reconstruction. In haemodynamically unstable patients or in patients where open repair is not feasible in the acute setting of secondary aortoduodenal fistula, we advocate the use of a 2-staged endovascular and surgical approach to improve short- and long-term outcomes...

OBJECTIVES: Surgery is often required for acute infective endocarditis (IE) to repair or replace damaged heart valves. Traditionally, long courses of antibiotic treatment have been prescribed after surgery for active IE for fear of infecting newly implanted/repaired valves, but the need for this, in the present era of enhanced antimicrobial stewardship, has been questioned. In our institution, the choice and duration of antimicrobial therapy is tailored to individual patients by a multidisciplinary team with an interest in IE...

Enhanced recovery after surgery is well established in specialties such as colorectal surgery. It is achieved through the introduction of multiple evidence-based perioperative measures that aim to diminish postoperative organ dysfunction while facilitating recovery. This review aims to present consensus recommendations for the optimal perioperative management of patients undergoing thoracic surgery (principally lung resection). A systematic review of meta-analyses, randomized controlled trials, large non-randomized studies and reviews was conducted for each protocol element...

OBJECTIVES: With the increasing availability of hybrid operating rooms, single-stage tumour localization and removal under intraoperative computed tomography (CT) guidance is gaining popularity. The objective of this study was to describe the learning curve for this procedure. METHODS: Over a 15-month period, a single team of thoracic surgeons without experience in intraoperative CT-guided lung tumour localization performed a total of 91 procedures in 89 patients...

OBJECTIVES: Depletion in skeletal muscle is closely associated with limited physical ability and high mortality. In this study, we evaluated the prognostic significance of skeletal muscle depletion in patients with early-stage non-small-cell lung cancer. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of patients with pathological stages I-II lung cancer, who underwent curative resection between 2009 and 2013, was conducted. The truncal muscle index (TMI) (area/height2) at the first lumbar vertebral level was measured by preoperative axial computed tomography...

OBJECTIVES: Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a common postoperative complication. Previous studies have shown that the incidence of VTE after major thoracic surgery ranges from 2.3% to 15%. However, there have been no such data from China so far. To evaluate the incidence of postoperative VTE, we conducted a single-centre, prospective cohort study. METHODS: Patients who underwent lung resections between July 2016 and March 2017 were enrolled in this study. None of the patients received any prophylaxis perioperatively...

Structural valve deterioration is a well-studied phenomenon in bioprosthetic heart valves. Conversely, structural valve deterioration after transcatheter aortic valve implantation is not as well-elucidated. Therefore, late surgical explantation after transcatheter aortic valve implantation is an infrequent procedure, and thus, surgical findings and management of such cases remain unclear, particularly in patients previously labelled as 'inoperable' or at 'high risk'. Herein, we report the case of a late surgical explantation of a transcatheter heart valve (THV) 7 years after its implantation in a patient with a porcelain aorta and periprosthetic regurgitation...

A 47-year-old patient was injured in a bomb blast and sustained trauma due to multiple fragments of shrapnel from a terrorist explosive device. We report on the surgery required to safely remove a piece of shrapnel from the anterior wall of the main pulmonary artery (PA). A chest X-ray revealed a left-sided haemothorax. A computed tomography scan confirmed the trajectory and position of a metal bolt that had lodged between the main PA and the aortic arch. At surgery, a limited left anterior thoracotomy was performed initially...

OBJECTIVES: Heart-lung transplantation has been established as an effective treatment for patients with advanced cardiopulmonary failure. Over the years, the number of operations performed has declined. In 2015, only 38 adult heart-lung transplants were reported worldwide. Since then, we have performed 16 operations in high-acuity patients with excellent postoperative outcomes. Herein, we review our single-centre experience with heart-lung transplantation over the past 10 years. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 49 heart-lung transplant recipients between 2008 and 2018 to investigate the patient characteristics and outcomes while comparing those results across 2 cohorts (2008-2015, Era I, n = 30 and 2016-2018, Era II, n = 19)...

Quadricuspid aortic valves are rare congenital malformations. Although aortic valve replacement is the first-choice treatment in most cases, aortic valve repair using a tricuspidization procedure has been reported. Herein, we report the case of a patient with a quadricuspid aortic valve associated with aortic insufficiency that we successfully repaired with aortic valve-sparing root replacement and bicuspidization.
