In their series of 11 postoperative chylothorax events after open thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm repair, Wu and colleagues demonstrate this rare (incidence <1%) but potentially serious complication can usually be treated nonoperatively. In cases of high-output chylothorax or chylothorax refractory to medical management, surgical thoracic duct ligation may be required.

Timothy S Lancaster, Pirooz Eghtesady
Pediatric lung transplantation is a highly specialized therapy for end stage pulmonary disease in children, performed in only a handful of transplant centers around the world. Advancement in the field has been made on many fronts in recent years, including in public policy and organ allocation strategies, donor selection and management, emerging technologies for donor lung rehabilitation and bridge-to-transplant support of listed candidates, and ongoing refinement of surgical techniques. Despite this progress, children continue to suffer discrepant waitlist mortality and longer waiting times than their adult counterparts, and face special challenges of donor availability and size matching...

OBJECTIVES: While low birth weight is a known risk factor for mortality in congenital heart lesions and may consequently delay surgical repair, outcomes in low weight neonates undergoing the arterial switch operation have not been well described. Our objective was to assess the safety of this procedure in infants weighing ≤2.5kg at the time of surgery. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed outcomes for all neonates undergoing the arterial switch operation at our institution from 2005 to 2015...

OBJECTIVE: Surgical treatment of multiple ventricular septal defects (VSDs) has advanced significantly in recent years, yet remains technically challenging. With high rates of complications and reoperations, we sought to assess the outcomes of patients undergoing a variety of management techniques for multiple VSDs. METHODS: From 1988 to 2015, 157 consecutive patients underwent surgical management of multiple VSDs at a median age of 2.2 months (2 days - 16 years)...

OBJECTIVES: The primary objectives of this study were to describe the characteristics and survival outcomes for children supported with the HeartWare HVAD® system from the global community. METHODS: This was a retrospective survey of patients <18 years with a HVAD® system. Questionnaires were sent to sites across the world in April 2015 and collected between May 2015-16. Information on 205 patients was collected. RESULTS: The median age of implant was 13...

OBJECTIVE: Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery may be associated with less morbidity than open lobectomy/segmentectomy, but some studies have questioned the benefit of thoracoscopic surgery. The study aimed to determine trends and factors associated with patient's likelihood of undergoing thoracoscopic lobectomy/segmentectomy and to compare outcomes with each approach. METHODS: This retrospective study included adult patients undergoing pulmonary lobectomy/segmentectomy from the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Project from 2007-2015 (n=14,717)...

Injury to the phrenic nerves may occur during surgery for pulmonary atresia with ventricular septal defect and major aortopulmonary collateral arteries (PA-VSD and MAPCAs). These patients may develop respiratory failure and require diaphragm plication. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of phrenic nerve palsy on recovery following surgery for PA-VSD and MAPCAs. Between 2007 and 2016, approximately 500 patients underwent surgery for PA-VSD and MAPCAs at our institution. Twenty-four patients (4...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the results of catheter-based and surgical reintervention in primary mitral regurgitation (PMR) after failed MitraClip therapy. METHODS: We report on 21 consecutive symptomatic patients with PMR (median age 78 years) who underwent either repeat MitraClip therapy (n=7) or mitral valve surgery (n=14) after failure of the index procedure with 1-2 MitraClip implantations. At the time of reinterventions, 193 [IQR: 32 to 622] days after index procedure, patients had recurrent or persistent grade 3 MR...

OBJECTIVE: We developed a novel localization technique for small intrapulmonary lesions using radiofrequency identification (RFID) technology. Micro-RFID markers with nickel-titanium coils were designed to be placed from subsegmental bronchi to the peripheral parenchyma. In this preclinical study, thoracoscopic subsegmentectomy of a canine pseudotumor model was performed to demonstrate the feasibility and three-dimensional positional accuracy of the system. METHODS: To recover subcentimeter pseudotumors, markers were bronchoscopically placed to determine the resection line: 1) next to the pseudotumor, 2) in the responsible subsegmental bronchi as the central margin, 3) on the intersubsegmental plane as the lateral margin...
