OBJECTIVE: Cervical rib can often be symptomatic causing neurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome (nTOS). Surgical treatment involves rib resection through a supraclavicular, transaxillary or combined approach. We review outcomes of different approaches and describe our technique of transaxillary resection through a video. METHODS: Single center retrospective review of peri-operative and short-term outcomes in subjects undergoing cervical rib resection for nTOS between 1994 and 2013...

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) contains numerous growth factors and promotes bone fracture healing. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of the controlled release of PRP from biodegradable gelatin hydrogel for promoting healing in a rabbit ischemic sternal model. PRP was prepared from the whole blood of a Japanese white rabbit. Sixteen rabbits were randomized into four groups (each n = 4) and all underwent median sternotomy and bilateral internal thoracic artery removal. Before the sternum was closed, the following solutions were applied between the sternum incisions in three of the groups: 30 mg of gelatin hydrogel incorporating 300 μL of phosphate-buffered saline, 300 μL of a solution form of PRP, or 30 mg of gelatin hydrogel incorporating 300 μL of PRP (PRP+Gel)...

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...

Uniportal video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) was growing popular since its first introduction. Based on the conventional uniportal VATS, we modified the technique and introduced transaxillary uniportal VATS lobectomy in this case report. In March 2017, transaxillary uniportal VATS was firstly attempted on a patient suffering from right upper lobe lesion at the Department of Thoracic Surgery, Zhongshan Hospital, Fudan University. A 4-cm single incision was made at the fossa axillaris paralleled to the skin folds, to which a soft wound protector was applied to reach the third intercostal space along the anterior axillary line...

Most intrathoracic goiters are located in the anterior mediastinum. Surgical resection is usually recommended in case of morbidity associated with the goiter's mass effect or for suspicion of malignancy difficult to diagnose without resection. Intrathoracic goiters are usually resected through a cervical approach, with sternotomy needed in selected cases. We report a case of antero mediastinal retrosternal goiter in old age patient undergoing surgical excision by combined cervical and hybrid robot-assisted approach...

INTRODUCTION: Interest in uniportal video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) is rapidly growing worldwide because it represents the surgical approach to the lung with the least possible trauma and in recent years the subxiphoid approach has been used in the field of thoracic surgery as it is associated with lesser pain because there is no intercostal nerve damage and it provides excellent cosmetic outcomes. This technique was recently introduced for major pulmonary resections and even bilateral approaches in selected patients...

OBJECTIVE: First rib resection is a well-recognized treatment option for thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS). In case of a vascular insufficiency that can be provoked and/or progressive neurologic symptoms without response to conservative treatment, surgical decompression of the space between the clavicle and the first rib is indicated. The aim of this paper is to present our experience with a new minimally invasive robotic approach using the da Vinci Surgical System®. METHODS: Between January 2015 and October 2017, eight consecutive first rib resections in seven patients were performed at our institution...

Introduction: Spontaneous spinal epidural hematoma (SSEH) is a rare condition that can potentially cause paraplegia. SSEH has an increasing incidence rate and its cause remains unclear. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) results shows that SSEH presents a spinal epidural space-occupying lesion; therefore, emergency surgical treatment is required in some cases. MRI results of most SSEH cases showed that hematoma occurs in the dorsal or lateral side. By contrast, hematoma in the ventral side is very rarely shown...

Since the first description of uniportal video-assisted thoracic surgery (U-VATS) (or single-port) lobectomy, several centers in Asia and Europe rapidly adopted this technique as a standard approach for treatment of early stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Despite the controversies regarding feasibility and completeness of resection, thoracic surgeons in high volume centers keep pushing the limits to perform very complex procedures also known as "extended resections" through minimally invasive surgery...

Uniportal video-assisted thoracic surgery (U-VATS) is gaining popularity, and is currently performed by a team formed by one surgeon, one camera holder and one nurse. As expected, the new word "uni-surgeon" is becoming more and more common. In this article, using the example of thoracic surgery, I try briefly to analyze the pro and cons of the uniportal-single incision VATS and uni-surgeon in the modern world, and how uniportal surgery may bring a novel dimension to the future of surgery.

BACKGROUND: One-stage closure and fenestration are the available surgical options for bronchopleural fistula (BPF). One-stage closure may be applicable in cases with favorable infection control. Closing the bronchopleural stump is difficult due to thick adhesion caused by inflammation and a high risk of pulmonary artery injury. We report the successful closure of a BPF using a gastric seromuscular patch with an omental pedicle flap. CASE PRESENTATION: A 73-year-old man underwent right lower lobectomy with ND2a-2 lymph node dissection for lung adenocarcinoma...

Increasing experience in single-incision video-assisted thoracoscopic (SIVATS) lung resections for lung cancer has made some sophisticated lung resections such as bronchial or vascular sleeve resections, chest wall resections and pneumonectomy possible. There are some case series published in medical literature about the feasibility and safety of multiportal video-assisted thoracic surgery pneumonectomy. However, in this prepubertal period of its evolution the literature data are still immature, and limited only to rare case reports or video presentations for SIVATS pneumonectomy for lung cancer...

Subcutaneous emphysema may aggravate traumatic pneumothorax treatment, especially when mechanical ventilation is required. Expectative management usually suffices, but when respiratory function is impaired surgical treatment might be indicated. Historically relevant methods are blowhole incisions and placement of various drains, often with related wound complications. Since the first report of negative pressure wound therapy for the treatment of severe subcutaneous emphysema in 2009, only few publications on use of commercially available sets were published...

Introduction: The stripping of the densely innervated and inflamed parietal pleura in empyema during video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) decortication can lead to significant pain and major postoperative respiratory compromise. Hence, we compared the analgesic efficacy of continuous epidural infusion versus local infiltration and systemic opioids in children undergoing VATS decortications. Methodology: Following ethics approval and informed consent, forty patients from 1 to 12 years of age were randomized into two groups, Group E (epidural) and Group L (local infiltration) after induction of anesthesia...

Thoracoscopic surgery is becoming more widely used in thoracic surgery and has an increasingly important role to play. However, its use for locally advanced carcinoma (clinical stage T3-4) remains controversial. We adapted our procedure by combining thoracoscopy and open chest surgery (combination surgery) with the aim of reducing invasiveness while ensuring that the operation is safe and curative. Here we describe our experience. Case 1 was a man in his 60s who underwent induction chemoradiotherapy (cisplatin plus vinorelbine plus 40 Gy radiotherapy) followed by radical surgery for a left apical lung carcinoma with chest wall invasion...

Minimally invasive surgical mitral valve repair (MVRepair) has become routine for the treatment of mitral valve regurgitation, and indications have been expanded to include reoperations. Current European Society of Cardiology/European Association for Cardio-Thoracic Surgery guidelines for the management of valvular heart disease recommended standards in terms of mitral valve disease differentiation, timing of intervention and surgical techniques to improve patient care. Numerous minimally invasive techniques to lessen the invasiveness have been described, such as the minimal-access J-sternotomy (ministernotomy), the parasternal incision, the port-access technique and the right minithoracotomy...
