OBJECTIVES: The European Registry for Patients with Mechanical Circulatory Support (EUROMACS) was founded in Berlin, Germany. EUROMACS is supported fully by the European Association for Cardio-Thoracic Surgery (EACTS) and, since 2014, has functioned as a committee of the EACTS. The purpose of having the EUROMACS as a part of the EACTS is to accumulate clinical data related to long-term mechanical circulatory support for scientific purposes and to publish annual reports. METHODS: Participating hospitals contributed surgical and cardiological pre-, peri- and long-term postoperative data of mechanical circulatory support implants to the registry...

Thoracic surgery faces many unique challenges that require innovative solutions. The increase in utilization of minimally invasive practices, poor overall cancer survival and significant morbidity of key operations remain key obstacles to overcome. Intraoperative fluorescence imaging is a process by which fluorescent dyes and imaging systems are used as adjuncts for surgeons in the operating room. Other surgical subspecialists have shown that intraoperative fluorescence imaging can be applied as a practical adjunct to their practices...

OBJECTIVE: This paper aims at evaluating the effect of spinal surgery on the torso shape appearance of adolescent patients. Current methods that assess the surgical outcome on the trunk shape are limited to its global asymmetry or rely on unreliable manual measurements. METHOD: We introduce a novel framework to evaluate pre- to post-operative local asymmetry changes using a spectral representation of the torso shape, more specifically, the Laplacian spectrum (eigenvalues and eigenvectors) of a graph...

Respiratory motion during PET/CT imaging can cause significant image blurring and underestimation of tracer concentration for both static and dynamic studies. In this study, with the aim to eliminate both intra-cycle and inter-cycle motions, and apply to dynamic imaging, we developed a non-rigid event-byevent (NR-EBE) respiratory motion compensated list-mode reconstruction algorithm. The proposed method consists of 2 components, the first component estimates a continuous non-rigid motion field of the internal organs using the internal-external motion correlation (NR-INTEX)...

BACKGROUND: Every year, more than 1.5 million patients, who undergo cardiac surgery worldwide, are exposed to a series of factors that can trigger acute postoperative pain associated with hemodynamic instability, respiratory complications, and psychological disorders. Through an evaluation of literature data about postoperative pain in cardiac surgery we define unmet needs and potential objectives for future research on this often underestimated problem. METHODS: Following PRISMA Guidelines, a systematic literature search was carried out by two independent researchers on Scopus, CINAHL, the Cochrane Library, and PubMed using the keywords: [(perioperative OR postoperative) analgesia AND "cardiac surgery"]...

Background  Endograft infections (EIs) are rare complications after endovascular procedures in the thoracic and abdominal aortas. The challenging treatment encloses antibiotic and surgical therapies. Case Description  A 74-year-old male patient developed an EI after an endovascular procedure (thoracic endovascular aortic repair [TEVAR]). Despite a long-term oral antibiotic therapy, the clinical symptoms showed no falling trend. Because of the expanded infection from above the celiac trunk up to the aortic arch, we decided to remove the infected endograft and to implant an extra-anatomic ascendobifemoral bypass...
