Fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) of intraocular mass lesions is an important intervention in the presence of diagnostic difficulty. FNAB of intraocular mass lesions is also likely to become more commonly recommended for prognostication of tumors such as choroidal melanoma. The most commonly described approach for tumor localization and visualization during FNAB is transillumination and indirect ophthalmoscopic viewing. Herein, we report endoillumination (chandelier) and wide-angle viewing assisted, microscope-based approach for FNAB in two patients using two port minimally invasive vitreoretinal surgical approach...

Left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) have become the standard therapy for patients with end-stage heart failure, and the use of LVADs for long-term support has grown exponentially over the past decade. As the number of LVAD implantations has increased, surgeons have faced more challenging cases, such as those in which the patient has previously undergone a sternotomy. The HeartMate II is one of the most widely implanted LVADs. The standard procedure for HeartMate II implantation is median sternotomy and sewing the outflow graft to the ascending aorta...

Photodynamic therapy represents a very attractive therapeutic tool considered to be effective, minimally invasive and minimally toxic. However, conventional photodynamic therapy actually has two main constraints: the limited penetration depth of visible light needed for its activation, and the lack of selectivity. Considering this, this work reports the synthesis and evaluation of a novel nanoconjugate for imaging and selective photodynamic therapy against HER2-positive breast cancer, a particularly aggressive form of the disease...

Minimally invasive sublobar anatomical resection is becoming more and more popular to manage early lung lesions. Robotic-assisted thoracic surgery (RATS) is unique in comparison with other minimally invasive techniques. Indeed, RATS is able to better integrate multiple streams of information including advanced imaging techniques, in an immersive experience at the level of the robotic console. Our aim was to describe three-dimensional (3D) imaging throughout the surgical procedure from preoperative planning to intraoperative assistance and complementary investigations such as radial endobronchial ultrasound (R-EBUS) and virtual bronchoscopy for pleural dye marking...

There are many novel technologies that enable complex segmentectomy to be performed. As lung cancer screening becomes more prevalent, patients are increasingly diagnosed with early stage lung cancer, multifocal disease, and second primary tumors. This shift to an earlier clinical presentation combined with advances in technology and an emphasis on minimally invasive techniques have led to the current developments we are now seeing with anatomic segmentectomy. In this paper, we describe the operative technique of an indocyanine green (ICG)-guided video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) single basilar segmental resection, augmented with methylene blue dye marker localization via SuperDimension electromagnetic navigational bronchoscopy...

Appropriate lymph node (LN) assessment is a hallmark of surgical quality of curative intent operations for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Even in the era of extensive pre-treatment work-up including routine PET-scanning and brain imaging, and selective invasive LN evaluation, unexpected LN metastases are found at surgery in more than 10% of patients with a cT1aN0 tumor. Systematic lymphadenectomy minimizes the risk of leaving tumor-LN behind and thus the risk of an incomplete resection, and provides the most truthful pTNM, which is decisive in directing adjuvant chemotherapy...

Venous thromboembolism, including deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism, occur in up to 900,000 people per year in the United States. Current first-line therapy consists of systemic anticoagulation with a goal to prevent additional thrombus formation. Treatment with anticoagulation alone provides less than satisfactory results with some studies showing propagation of thrombus in almost 40% of cases. Current first-line therapy does not include active removal of thrombus and does little to alleviate acute symptoms and the damaging inflammatory response that may result in postthrombotic syndrome...

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a minimally invasive cancer modality that combines a photosensitizer (PS), light, and oxygen. Introduction of new nanotechnologies holds potential to improve PDT performance. Upconversion nanoparticles (UCNPs) offer potentially advantageous benefits for PDT, attributed to their distinct photon upconverting feature. The ability to convert near-infrared (NIR) light into visible or even ultraviolet light via UCNPs allows for the activation of nearby PS agents to produce singlet oxygen, as most PS agents absorb visible and ultraviolet light...
