Tuberculous empyema in lung transplantation recipients is a rare entity, with only a handful of cases reported in the English-language literature. We are reporting a case of tuberculous empyema 3 months after uncomplicated bilateral lung transplantation. The recipient underwent video-assisted thoracic surgery for diagnosis and decortication. Both the recipient and donor lacked a history of tuberculosis or tuberculosis exposure.

BACKGROUND: Video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) is usually performed using three ports. Uniportal VATS has not yet been widely developed. We report our single institution experience in uniportal VATS for the surgical management of 351 patients with pneumothorax. METHODS: Between November 2009 and February 2016, we conducted a study in 351 patients treated for pneumothorax using uniportal VATS. Resection of apical bullae associated with partial pleurectomy, pleural abrasion, or talc effusion was performed...

BACKGROUND: Primary peritoneal papillary serous carcinoma (PPPSC) is an uncommon disease which has a high malignancy and a poor prognosis. CASE PRESENTATION: We report here a long-term survival case of PPPSC with postoperative lung metastasis. A 62-year-old female patient with PPPSC was administered two cycles of neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) followed by cytoreductive surgery (CRS) plus hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) and six cycles of platinum-based (docetaxel + carboplatin) intraperitoneal chemotherapy postoperatively...

Approximately two decades ago, thoracic surgery witnessed the leap from thoracotomy to the first video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) lobectomy. Minimally invasive lobectomy and hilar lymphadenectomy is now widely established as a safe and oncological sound technique that is the standard of care for early-stage lung cancer. The move toward less invasive surgery has no doubt driven the innovation of sophisticated instruments and technology to cope with the demanding need of working through a restricted incision...

Diaphragmatic plication has been a well employed method for the treatment of diaphragmatic eventration and/or paralysis. Uniportal thoracoscopic procedures seem to offer substantial benefit in terms of postoperative pain and cosmesis with similar outcomes as other surgical techniques. A 60-year-old female patient was referred to our clinic for the surgical treatment of diaphragmatic eventration of an unknown cause. The patient was referred to our institution from another hospital, where she had undergone a femoro-popliteal and crural bypass which was unsuccessful, requiring amputation of her leg...

Pulmonary sequestration (SP), is a rare condition, which requires a high index of suspicion for appropriate diagnosis. Clinical manifestations usually simulate banal respiratory diseases, so the diagnosis always tends to be delayed. Surgical treatment by video-assisted, thoracic surgery is a safe option for the management of pulmonary sequestration. The extensive evaluation of the images and knowledge of certain anatomical details are necessary to prevent accidents during surgery. Surgery at an early age helps surgical resection with fewer complications...

OBJECTIVE: There is still a lack of a universally applicable and comprehensive scoring system for documenting the invasiveness of surgical procedures. The proposed preliminary 'Universal Surgical Invasiveness Score' (pUSIS) is intended to fill this gap. METHODS: We used the recently developed pUSIS to obtain values from 8 types of surgery and 80 individual interventions. The results were analysed using descriptive statistical methods. The degree of difficulty on a scale from 0 (very easy) to 10 (extremely difficult) and time expenditures for assessing pUSIS were documented...

Background Posterior mediastinal lesions are classified as solid lesions and cysts. The treatment for both types is surgery. We evaluated the surgical outcomes and recurrence rates after video-assisted thoracic surgery and thoracotomy for posterior mediastinal lesions. Methods Data of 66 resections for posterior mediastinal masses between 2000 and 2014 were reviewed retrospectively. Twenty-two patients were treated by video-assisted thoracic surgery (group V) and 44 underwent thoracotomy (group T); 29 (43.9%) were female and 37 (56...

OBJECTIVES: Totally endoscopic minimally invasive mitral valve surgery (MIMVS) is technically demanding and often performed with robotic assistance. We hypothesized that three-port video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) would facilitate endoscopic MIMVS and evaluated its feasibility and safety. METHODS: From October 2010 to June 2016, we performed first-time MIMVS in 250 consecutive patients (122 male), with median age of 65 years (54-73 years, 25-75 percentile)...

OBJECTIVES: The objective of the present study was to compare functional loss [forced expiratory volume in one second to forced vital capacity ratio (FEV1), DLCO and VO2max reduction] after VATS versus open lobectomies. METHODS: We performed a prospective observational study on 195 patients who had a pulmonary lobectomy from June 2010 to November 2014 and who were able to complete a 3-months functional evaluation follow-up program. Since the VATS technique was our first choice for performing lobectomies from January 2012, we divided the patients into two groups: the OPEN group (112 patients) and the VATS group (83 patients)...

Chylous pericardial effusion is a rarely reported complication of lung cancer surgery. Here, we report a case of an elderly man who suffered chylous pericardial effusion after radical right upper lung resection for cancer. The massive chylous effusion first occurred in the pericardium, drained to the right chest after the drainage of the hydropericardium and subsequently moved back to the pericardium again. Lymphoscintigraphy examination indicated that a chylous fistula was present in the plane of the tracheal carina...

A 62-year-old man with situs inversus totalis and non-small-cell lung cancer underwent a right lower lobectomy by video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery. Lobectomy in a situs inversus totalis patient can be performed safely using this minimally invasive procedure. Preoperative evaluation of the pulmonary artery and veins by three-dimensional computed tomography and the bronchial tree by bronchoscopy, is essential to avoid unanticipated complications during the procedure.

BACKGROUND: Empyema refers to pus in the pleural space, commonly due to adjacent pneumonia, chest wall injury, or a complication of thoracic surgery. A range of therapeutic options are available for its management, ranging from percutaneous aspiration and intercostal drainage to video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) or thoracotomy drainage. Intrapleural fibrinolytics may also be administered following intercostal drain insertion to facilitate pleural drainage. There is currently a lack of consensus regarding optimal treatment...

An abnormal lung shadow was detected in a 39-year-old woman at physical examination and she was followed-up carefully at a nearby hospital. After 5 years follow-up, the patient was referred to our hospital for further examination of the abnormal shadow. A chest computed tomography(CT) scan revealed a 12 mm well-circumscribed nodular shadow in the right lower lobe. A benign tumor such as a hamartoma was suspected preoperatively;video-assisted thoracic surgery was performed for both diagnosis and treatment. Partial resection of the right lower lobe was performed and the tumor was diagnosed as an intrapulmonary solitary fibrous tumor (SFT)...
