OBJECTIVE: Morbidity due to sternotomy continues to be a significant clinical problem. Poor approximation of the sternum may lead to complications such as sternal dehiscence, infection, and pain. A device to assist in tensioning and twisting standard steel wires during sternal closure has been developed (TORQ sternal closure device). Manually tightened interrupted wire closures were compared with those tightened and secured with the aid of the device. Performance of the device was assessed clinically...

OBJECTIVE: As with any medical therapy, identification of consistent and reliable outcome predictors is essential to understanding the efficacy of surgical ablation for atrial fibrillation. We originally intended to conduct a meta-analysis on atrial fibrillation surgical ablation to identify clinical factors that are most often associated with success. However, these studies are greatly heterogeneous. We conducted a systematic review to identify trends in outcome predictors and to provide recommendations for more uniform data analysis and reporting...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to report the safety and efficacy of video-assisted thoracoscopic (VATS) plication of the diaphragm at our institution between 2006 and 2016. METHODS: Adult patients selected on etiology and combination of investigations including plain chest x-ray, computed tomography of chest and abdomen, lung functions in supine and sitting positions, radiological/ultrasonic screening for diaphragmatic movement, and phrenic nerve conduction studies...

OBJECTIVE: Robot-assisted gastrectomy is increasingly used for the treatment of gastric cancer, although it remains a time-consuming procedure. An ultrasonically activated device might be useful to shorten operation times. This study therefore assessed the effect of ultrasonically activated device use on procedural times and on other early surgical outcomes. METHODS: Consecutive patients (N = 42) who underwent robot-assisted distal gastrectomy for gastric cancer were included...

A 26-year-old man presented with gunshot wound to the epigastrium. At surgery, he was hemodynamically stable and had a tense hematoma with thrill in zone 2 (right side) and porta triad. After liver injury was controlled, he underwent percutaneous stenting of a renal artery-vena cava fistula and the hepatic artery injury was followed. Historically, penetrating injury to zone 2 has mandated operative exploration. However, with the advent of endovascular options, in stable patients, catheter-based options offer a reasonable alternative with less risk of blood loss and possible nephrectomy...

Totally endoscopic robotic surgery is a safe approach to atrial septal defect closure in adults. Robotic approach can be an alternative to traditional incisions in the management of concomitant tricuspid valve regurgitation with ruptured chordae tendineae. Herein, we describe a woman who presented with atrial septal defect and tricuspid insufficiency after an unsuccessful percutaneous intervention with device removal from the right ventricle. Concomitant closure of septal defect and tricuspid valve repair with artificial chords was successfully performed using robot assistance...

OBJECTIVE: Patients with May-Thurner syndrome presenting with acute deep vein thrombosis benefit from early lysis of clot and endovascular treatment. We evaluated the outcome of patients with May-Thurner syndrome who presented with deep vein thrombosis, managed with pharmacomechanical thrombolysis as the primary mode of intervention, in combination with angioplasty and stent placement. METHODS: We reviewed all patients with May-Thurner syndrome managed in our institution between January 2009 to December 2015...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to investigate the effectivity and safety of totally endoscopic cardiac surgery without robotic assistance for atrial septal defect (ASD) closure on beating hearts. METHODS: Twenty-five patients (adults/children: 15/10) underwent ASD closure using nonrobotically assisted totally endoscopic approach on beating heart. Three 5-mm trocars and one 12-mm trocar were used, only the superior vena cava is snared, filling the pleural and pericardial cavities with CO2, and the heart was beating during the surgery...

Surgical septal myectomy is the treatment of choice for patients with symptomatic hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy refractory to medications. This report describes our minimally invasive approach for performing a septal myectomy via a ministernotomy that has been used at our institution for more than a decade. In particular, patient preparation, surgical technique, and clinical considerations are highlighted. Performed properly, this minimally invasive technique is a feasible and effective approach in our experience...
