OBJECTIVE: The study objective was to develop an aggregate risk score for predicting the occurrence of prolonged air leak after video-assisted thoracoscopic lobectomy from patients registered in the European Society of Thoracic Surgeons database. METHODS: A total of 5069 patients who underwent video-assisted thoracoscopic lobectomy (July 2007 to August 2015) were analyzed. Exclusion criteria included sublobar resections or pneumonectomies, lung resection associated with chest wall or diaphragm resections, sleeve resections, and need for postoperative assisted mechanical ventilation...

OBJECTIVE: To analyze the findings of aortic floating thrombus (AFT) on computed tomography angiography (CTA) for a definitive, timely diagnosis and to select a reasonable management course to improve prognosis. METHOD: We retrospectively analyzed imaging findings of 5 patients with AFT detected by CTA, including location, morphology, size, involved aortic segment, concomitant embolism, stent, and dynamic changes during the follow-up. RESULTS: Seven lesions were detected in the initial CTA studies of the 5 patients: 5 aortic intraluminal floating thrombi (3 patients) and 2 aortic in-stents floating thrombi (ASFTs; 2 patients)...

OBJECTIVE: Surgeons have hesitated to adopt minimally invasive diaphragm plication techniques because of technical limitations rendering the procedure cumbersome or leading to early failure or reduced efficacy. We sought to demonstrate efficacy and durability of our thoracoscopic plication technique using a single running suture. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed patients who underwent our technique for diaphragm plication since 2008. We used a single, buttressed, double-layered, to-and-fro running suture with additional plicating horizontal mattress sutures as needed...

INTRODUCTION: Ex vivo measurement of ascending aortic biomechanical properties may help understand the risk for rupture or dissection of dilated ascending aortas. A validated in vivo method that can predict aortic biomechanics does not exist. Speckle tracking transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) has been used to measure ventricular stiffness; we sought to determine whether speckle TEE could be adapted to estimate aortic stiffness in vivo and compare these findings with those obtained by ex vivo tissue measurements...

OBJECTIVES: Berry syndrome is a combination of distal aortopulmonary window (APW), aortic origin of the right pulmonary artery (RPA), intact ventricular septum, and interrupted aortic arch. We present here our current experience of primary repair of this syndrome with the goal of optimizing treatment for this rare condition. METHODS: From January 2003 through December 2015, 16 infants with Berry syndrome underwent one-stage repair at Shanghai Children's Medical Center...

OBJECTIVE: The 88-week Thoracic Surgery Curriculum is challenging to implement because of the large content in a traditional lecture format. This study investigates flipping the classroom by using a case-based format designed to stimulate resident preparation and engagement. METHODS: The didactic conference format was altered. Curricular reading assignments, case review, and conference participation prepared residents for novel formative assessment quizzes. Ten residents participated, and faculty served as controls...

OBJECTIVE: We examined the early outcomes and the long-term survival associated with different degrees of hypothermia in patients who received antegrade cerebral perfusion (ACP) for >30 minutes. METHODS: During a 10-year period, 544 consecutive patients underwent proximal and total aortic arch surgery and received ACP for >30 minutes and 1 of 3 levels of hypothermia: deep (14.1°C-20°C; n = 116 [21.3%]), low-moderate (20.1°C-23.9°C; n = 262 [48.2%]), and high-moderate (24°C-28°C; n = 166 [30...

OBJECTIVES: To investigate the potential beneficial effects of posterior pericardial drainage in patients undergoing heart surgery. METHODS: Multiple online databases and relevant congress proceedings were screened for randomized controlled trials assessing the efficacy and safety of posterior pericardial drainage, defined as posterior pericardiotomy incision, chest tube to posterior pericardium, or both. Primary endpoint was in-hospital/30 days' cardiac tamponade...

OBJECTIVE: We evaluated whether video-assisted thoracoscopic lobectomy for locally advanced non-small cell lung cancer could be performed safely and with acceptable long-term outcomes by our improved technique and compared with standard thoracotomy lobectomy in a well-balanced population. METHODS: Patients with clinical stage II and III A non-small cell lung cancers who received lobectomy were reviewed. Video-assisted thoracoscopic lobectomies were all performed with Wang's technique by the surgeons who had overcome the learning curve and achieved proficiency...

OBJECTIVE: Donor blood transfusion has been identified as a potential risk factor for primary graft dysfunction and by extension early mortality. We sought to define the contributing risk of donor transfusion on early mortality for lung transplant. METHODS: Donor and recipient data were abstracted from the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network database updated through June 30, 2014, which included 86,398 potential donors and 16,255 transplants. Using the United Network for Organ Sharing 4-level designation of transfusion (no blood, 1-5 units, 6-10 units, and >10 units, massive), we analyzed all-cause mortality at 30-days with the use of logistic regression adjusted for confounders (ischemic time, donor age, recipient diagnosis, lung allocation score and recipient age, and recipient body mass index)...

OBJECTIVE: Patients with nonlocalized bronchiectasis are encountered commonly; however, there is little information regarding surgical intervention in this patient population. The aim of this study was to evaluate symptomatic response and safety of anatomic resection of the predominant lesion via the use of lobectomy for the management of nonlocalized bronchiectasis. METHODS: We reviewed the medical records of 37 consecutive patients who underwent lobectomy via thoracotomy for nonlocalized bronchiectasis between 2010 and 2013...

OBJECTIVE: Coronary obstruction remains a challenging complication of transcatheter aortic valve replacement; however, a new self-expanding transapical prosthesis may reduce this risk. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the early 1-year outcomes of patients with low coronary heights who received the Acurate TA bioprosthesis (Symetis, Ecublens, Switzerland). METHODS: Between May 2014 and April 2015, 30 consecutive patients (aged 85 ± 6 years, 63% were female, Society of Thoracic Surgeons score 8...
