Surgical treatment for central bronchogenic carcinoma with invasion of the main bronchus and pulmonary artery often include bronchial anastomosis and pulmonary angioplasty. As a technique, video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) lobectomy has proven to reduce the rate of occurrence of complications, and thereby obtain improved survival rates. In the present case study, its use in treating central bronchogenic carcinoma with invasion of the main bronchus and pulmonary artery is reported. A case study of a 68-year-old man with a history of smoking 15-20 cigarettes per day for 40 years is described, who presented with a cough and hemoptysis...

BACKGROUND: Video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS)-assisted lobectomy is widely used to treat non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC). There are no reports concerning the comparison between single-port VATS and two-port VATS in treating NSCLC. This study aimed to compare the perioperative and short-term follow-up results between these two methods for treating NSCLC. METHODS: A retrospective surgical evaluation of patients undergoing either single-port VATS or two-port VATS for NSCLC between January 2013 and June 2015 was conducted...

BACKGROUND: Lobectomy is standard treatment for early-stage lung cancer, but sublobar resection remains debated. We compared outcomes after robotic-assisted video-assisted thoracoscopic (R-VATS) segmentectomy vs lobectomy. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed data from 251 consecutive patients who underwent R-VATS lobectomy (n = 208) or segmentectomy (n = 43) by a single surgeon over 36 months. Pulmonary function tests and perioperative outcomes were compared using Chi-squared test, unpaired Student t test, or Kruskal-Wallis test, with significance at P ≤ ...

Video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) is currently considered a 'gold standard' approach for pulmonary lobectomy in patients with early-stage lung cancer, displaying equal or superior results compared with an open traditional approach. In patients with limited pulmonary function, VATS lobectomy may reduce the impact of surgery and allow outcomes similar to patients with normal pulmonary function. The preliminary analysis of our initial, single center series of VATS lobectomy showed less complications and shorter postoperative length of stay compared with a historical series of open lobectomy patients...

The robotic surgical system is the result of a long process of development aimed at producing a natural extension of the surgeon's eyes and hands via the intermediation of a computer. In this way, the ease of movement obtained with open surgery is summated with the advantages of the minimally invasive technique. Since 2000, when the first robotic system for surgery was introduced, robot-assisted thoracic surgery (RATS) has been adopted by an increasing number of centres around the world, and today is used in ∼10% of lobectomies in the US...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Given the increased number of treatment options for stage IA lung cancer patients, there is a growing body of literature that focuses on comparing each option's relative impact on quality of life (QoL). The current study seeks to further understand the differences in these patients' QoL according to surgical approach. METHODS: Screening-diagnosed first primary pathologic stage IA non-small-cell lung cancer surgical patients from the I-ELCAP cohort who answered a baseline and 1-year follow-up QoL questionnaire (SF-12) were included in the analysis...

RATIONALE: There is a paucity of data regarding the optimal surgical approach for lung lobectomy. Lobectomy performed by video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) has been associated with lower morbidity as compared to thoracotomy. However, no multicenter studies have shown improved mortality with VATS lobectomy compared to open surgical lobectomy. OBJECTIVES: We used the United States Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project Nationwide Inpatient Sample (HCUP-NIS) database from 2009 to 2012 to compare VATS versus open lobectomy for in-hospital mortality and other short-term outcomes...

BACKGROUND: Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) lobectomy has emerged as a safe and effective technique for treating early-stage lung cancer. Novel three-dimensional, high-definition (3D HD) imaging has removed this technical obstacle and is increasingly used in laparoscopic surgery. We compared our initial experience of 3D HD VATS with standard two-dimensional (2D) HD VATS to identify the advantages and disadvantages of 3D HD visualization in VATS. METHODS: The data of consecutive patients diagnosed with lung cancer who underwent 2D or 3D thoracoscopic lobectomy or bilobectomy at the Guangdong Lung Cancer Institute from July 2013 to October 2014 were retrospectively analyzed...

Several studies have demonstrated that for complex surgical procedures, surgeons who treat more patients have better outcomes than their lower-volume counterparts. The aim of this paper is to review the experience with video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) lobectomies in our small thoracic unit (group A), to understand whether our short-term results were different to the outcomes obtained by the same surgeon previously working in a high-volume unit (group B). Twenty six patients underwent VATS lobectomy. Hospital stay was on average 4...

Tracheobronchial pediatric tumors are very rare and procedures like pneumonectomy are seldomly indicated due to the associated morbidity. If a surgical approach is considered, the ideal oncological technique would be the minimally invasive sleeve resection, allowing preservation of lung parenchyma (very important in pediatric patients). Here we present the first report of a thoracoscopic right upper tracheo-bronchial sleeve lobectomy in a pediatric patient. A 10-year-old female patient, who received multiple antibiotic treatments for recurrent pneumonia without improvement, was diagnosed with a right upper lobe (RUL) carcinoid tumor...

Chest wall invasion is seen in 5% to 8% of patients presenting with lung cancer. We report a case of complete resection of a 14 cm × 9 cm pT3N0M0 squamous cell carcinoma arising from the right lower lobe and invading the lower chest wall posteriorly, in a 75 years old male, via a hybrid thoracoscopic [video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS)] approach. Following conventional VATS lobectomy, a targeted 10 cm incision was performed to allow wide resection of the 7(th) to 10(th) ribs and 6(th) to 9(th) transverse processes, with the defect being subsequently reconstructed with a composite rigid prosthesis...
