Since the creation of intensive care units in the early 1960s, the central question of how to operate and staff them has continued to be an ongoing discussion. Early studies demonstrated decreased morality when staffing was altered from remote providers to full-time on-site providers. In addition to the shift towards full-time onsite providers, the structure of daily care has also undergone significant paradigm changes. Several studies have revealed the importance and benefit of multidisciplinary rounds with direct and open communication of daily goals...

There is strong retrospective data demonstrating that BIMA grafting leads to better long-term survival as compared to LIMA grafting. However, this survival advantage was not corroborated by the interim results of the Arterial Revascularization Trial(ART). Today, there are barriers to widespread adoption of BIMA grafting. One of the main disadvantages of the use of BIMA grafts is the higher risk of DSWI. Deep sternal wound infections can be minimized by skeletonized harvesting of the IMA grafts, which preserves blood flow to the sternum...

Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) pathways are protocolled collections of perioperative decisions designed to improve outcomes that are becoming increasingly popular across surgical subspecialties. In this article, we review five recent manuscripts focused on ERAS for elective pulmonary resections, focusing on the components of the pathways and the resultant outcomes. Overall, we observed that ERAS protocols can be safely implemented without increasing hospital readmission or mortality. The benefit is largely seen in shortened length of stay, though there is some promise for decreasing rates of important perioperative complications, especially in patients receiving thoracotomies...

Ex vivo lung perfusion (EVLP) implies perfusion and ventilation of a donor lung outside of the human body. The 2 most clinically relevant and commercially available devices currently in clinical trials are XVIVO Perfusion System (XPSTM ) (XPS Perfusion, Goteborg, Sweden) and Organ Care System (OCSTM ) (Transmedics, Andover, MA). Our review focuses on the needs met by EVLP, and the clinical literature on both devices.

Interventional pulmonology is an innovative branch of pulmonary medicine that uses minimally invasive diagnostic and therapeutic approaches to airway, parenchymal, and pleural disease. The author reviews recent high-impact trials including randomized trials describing the use of endobronchial coils and valves in the management of severe emphysema. Novel approaches to the palliation of malignant and benign pleural effusion including increasing the frequency of drainage and instillation of talc via tunneled pleural catheters are also presented...

Pediatric lung transplantation is a highly specialized therapy for end-stage pulmonary disease in children, and is 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...
