#1
Carl A Johnson, Juan A Siordia, Katherine L Wood, Davida A Robinson, Peter A Knight
OBJECTIVE: Bentall procedures are traditionally performed through a median sternotomy. The right mini-thoracotomy approach is increasingly used in aortic valve replacement. This approach has been shown to have decreased blood loss and hospital length of stay compared with sternotomy. A right mini-thoracotomy approach may also be beneficial in selected patients requiring aortic root surgery. We present our initial clinical experience of patients who have undergone a right mini-thoracotomy Bentall...

OBJECTIVE: At present, minimal invasive direct coronary artery grafting is the least invasive nonrobotic surgical approach to revascularize the left anterior descending artery with the left internal mammary artery. Total endoscopic coronary bypass grafting is performed with the help of a telemanipulator ("robot"). A prospective proof-of-concept study was initiated to investigate a nonrobotic total endoscopic coronary bypass grafting approach. METHODS: Twenty patients with significant left anterior descending artery or left main stem lesion were operated on via three or four left thoracic access ports...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to characterize the clinical outcomes and learning curve during the adoption of a robotic platform for lobectomy for early-stage non-small cell lung cancer by a thoracic surgeon experienced in open thoracotomy. METHODS: Retrospective review of 157 consecutive patients (57 open thoracotomies, 100 robotic lobectomies) treated with lobectomy for clinical stage I or II non-small cell lung cancer between 2007 and 2014. Clinical outcomes were compared between the open thoracotomy group and five consecutive groups of 20 robotic lobectomies...

OBJECTIVE: Pulmonary segmentectomy using robotic assistance is often perceived as being more expensive than segmentectomy using video-assisted thoracic surgery. The robotic technique allows for meticulous dissection during segmentectomy, potentially leading to fewer parenchymal injuries, fewer air leaks, and shorter length of stay. This study compared pulmonary segmentectomy costs using video-assisted thoracic surgery versus robotic with manual staplers versus robotic with robotic staplers...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this retrospective, single-center study was to evaluate the occurrence of conduction disorders after rapid deployment aortic bioprosthesis implantation. METHODS: Electrocardiograms of patients undergoing INTUITY (Edwards Lifesciences, Irvine, CA USA) bioprosthesis implantation were collected at admission, during postoperative course, and at discharge. Primary end point was the occurrence of new-onset conduction disorders, defined as complete left bundle branch block, complete right bundle branch block, permanent pacemaker implantation, and worsening of pre-existing rhythm abnormalities...

OBJECTIVE: The Ozaki procedure for aortic valve reconstruction was reported in 2014 with low mortality, a highly reproducible rate and a good midterm result. However, the procedure still requires conventional sternotomy to be accomplished. The aim of the study was to start an initial evaluation for the feasibility of the minimally invasive approach in combination with the Ozaki technique. METHODS: From January 06, 2017, to January 12, 2017, nine patients with severe aortic valve diseases underwent minimally invasive Ozaki procedure through an upper ministernotomy...

There have been few reports on the application of totally endoscopic surgery for repairing partial atrioventricular septal defect. In this report, we present two children who were successfully repaired partial atrioventricular septal defect by using totally endoscopic surgery without robotic assistance.

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to investigate the feasibility of using titanium fasteners for securement of the inflow sewing ring during HeartMate 3 implantation. The secondary objective was to compare cardiopulmonary bypass and total operative times between the titanium fastener and hand-tied knot groups. METHODS: Clearance between the sewing ring and the HeartMate 3 device was assessed in vitro. Thirty-one patients undergoing HeartMate 3 implantation via median sternotomy at a single center from April 2017 to February 2018 were reviewed...

During transcatheter aortic valve replacement with a self-expanding prosthesis, prosthesis embolization represents a rare but severe complication. Etiologies of prosthesis embolization include improper sizing and malpositioning, specifically high deployment with respect to the aortic annulus. Treatment of embolization into the aorta relies upon repositioning of the prosthesis using endovascular snares or removal with open surgery. Patients with prosthesis embolization have a high risk of mortality and morbidity including stroke and aortic dissection associated with manipulation of the prosthesis in the ascending aorta...

We describe the integration of the hybrid operation room cone-beam computed tomography (CT) scan technology into the practice of general thoracic surgery. The combination of the following three techniques: (1) cone-beam CT scan augmented navigational bronchoscopy, (2) cone-beam CT-guided percutaneous biopsy and/or fiducial placement, and (3) fiducial or image-guided video-assisted thoracic surgery resection, into a single-stage, single-provider procedure allows for diagnosis and treatment in one setting. Rapid on-site evaluation of cytological or pathology specimens is key to this "all-in-one" approach...
