BACKGROUND: Pulmonary sequestration is a rare congenital pulmonary dysplasia, which requires surgical resection (either via open thoracotomy or video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery [VATS] or via endoluminal occlusion of the abnormal feeding vessel). CASE PRESENTATION: We described a 51-year-old female patient with a history of recurrent cough and repeated pneumonia. She was referred to our hospital for further work-up of pulmonary sequestration. We performed a hybrid surgery (i...

Background: Patients undergoing video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) are particularly vulnerable to opioid-induced sedation and hypoventilation. Accordingly, reducing opioid consumption in these patients is a primary goal of multimodal analgesic regimens. Although administration of preoperative gabapentin and acetaminophen has been shown to decrease postoperative opioid consumption in other surgeries, this approach has not been studied in VATS lobectomy. Our objective was to examine the impact of the addition of preoperative gabapentin and acetaminophen to a VATS lobectomy multimodal analgesic plan on postoperative opioid consumption, nausea/vomiting, and sedation...

Minimally invasive surgery is being widely performed for the management of lung cancers owing to rapid technological advances in surgical devices and techniques. In recent times, because chemotherapy and radiotherapy have both become less invasive treatment strategies, therapeutic opportunities for the use of multimodality therapy have been increasing. Minimally invasive surgery is an important component that requires additional improvements to derive the complete benefit of multimodality therapy. We have been actively performing video-assisted thoracic surgery(VATS) for the management of advanced lung cancers, as well as early lung cancers to reduce surgical stress in our patients, thereby enhancing the scope of multimodality therapy...

AIMS/HYPOTHESIS: Wingless-type (Wnt) inducible signalling pathway protein-1 (WISP1) has been recently identified as a proinflammatory adipokine. We examined whether WISP1 expression and circulating levels are altered in type 2 diabetes and whether WISP1 affects insulin signalling in muscle cells and hepatocytes. METHODS: Serum and visceral adipose tissue (VAT) biopsies, for analysis of circulating WISP1 levels by ELISA and WISP1 mRNA expression by real-time quantitative RT-PCR, were collected from normal-weight men (control group, n = 33) and obese men with (n = 46) and without type 2 diabetes (n = 56) undergoing surgery...

Myelolipoma(ML) is an uncommon benign mesenchymal tumor consisting of mature adipocytes and hemopoietic elements mostly found in adrenal glands. Bilateral posterior mediastinal primary myelolipoma presents extremely rarely and only 11 such occurrences have been previously described. With no definite symptoms, pathological evaluation is essential for diagnosis. Here the authors present a case of a 63-year old man diagnosed with bilateral posterior mediastinal primary myelolipoma on basis of radiological findings who underwent surgical resection via video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS)...

During video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS), localization is sometimes needed to detect a target lesion that is too small and/or too far from the pleura. In 1995, Kanazawa et al. developed short hookwire and suture system. Since then, this system has been placed often for selected targets before VATS in Japan. This short hookwire and suture system is a representative preoperative localization method and the placement procedure is well-established. Its placement success rates are very high (range: 97.6%-99...

OBJECTIVE: Clinical evidence comparing paravertebral (PVB) and continuous intercostal nerve (ICB) blocks for pain management post video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) is limited. This study confirms the analgesic effect of ICB using two catheters is not inferior to that of PVB under direct vision. METHODS: Fifty patients who underwent VATS lobectomy from July 2015 to March 2016 were prospectively recruited and randomly assigned to PVB and ICB groups. Postoperative pain was assessed using the visual analog scale (VAS)...

BACKGROUND:  Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) clipping of the sympathetic branch has become the standard approach for the treatment of essential hyperhidrosis when conservative treatment failed. However, this is associated with relevant potential complications such as postoperative compensatory sweating and recurrent sweating. We report the outcome after selective sympathectomy (ramicotomy) through a miniuniportal VATS approach in patients with therapy-refractory palmar and/or axillary hyperhidrosis...

REVIEW
Truman Cheng, Calvin S H Ng, Zheng Li
In the past three decades, rod lens endoscopes had facilitated the development and wide spread applications of video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS). With the rise of uniportal VATS in recent years, innovations in surgical instruments should once again complement the advancement in surgical technique. While articulated flexible endoscopes have expand the field of view, and can alter viewing direction with minimal maneuvers, they still suffer from problems like trocar crowding and interference with other instruments...

REVIEW
Kook Nam Han, Hyun Koo Kim
Recently, some groups have reported the utilization of electromagnetic navigational bronchoscopy (ENB) for localization of pulmonary lesion. Its application for intraoperative visual localization with dyes to determine the target area has been increasing. In this paper, we reviewed the feasibility of ENB utilization for video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) or robotic sublobar resection as a localization tool, and its future application in minimally invasive thoracic surgery.

Background: To find small pulmonary nodules or ground grass nodules (GGNs) with video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) is very difficult. There are several conventional methods to localize small nodules or GGNs, which require additional radiation exposure and may cause some complications such as pneumothorax or hemothorax. We aimed to evaluate the effectiveness and feasibility of electromagnetic navigational bronchoscopy-guided pulmonary localization in a minimally invasive thoracic surgery field...

INTRODUCTION: Surgical treatment of primary spontaneous pneumothorax (PSP) usually consists of bullectomy and any form of pleurodesis to reduce risk of disease recurrence. Whether pleurectomy is superior to pleural abrasion is still a matter of debate with recurrence rates especially high when performed with a video-assisted thoracoscopic (VATS) approach. Aim of this study was to compare the efficacy of the two methods in prevention of recurrence of pneumothorax in a minimally invasive setting...

AIM: Pancreaticopleural fistula (PPF) is a rare complication of acute or chronic pancreatitis. When the pancreatic duct disrupts, pancreatic fluid may leak into the retroperitoneum and fistulate into the pleural cavity. Patients usually present with thoracic complaints, making it hard to suspect an abdominal etiology. Although PPF is uncommon, one must consider this diagnosis in patients with thoracic complaints and a history of alcohol abuse or pancreatitis. METHODS: We present an illustrative case and review of the literature on PPF...
