For the resection of pulmonary ground glass opacity (GGO) or non-palpable nodule on video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS), preoperative computed tomography (CT)-guided VATS marker pricking is usually performed. Recently, air embolisms after VATS marker pricking have been reported to be serious problems. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the usefulness of intraoperative cone beam CT images on VATS to avoid preoperative VATS marker pricking. The CT number of the both GGO and nodule indicate the range from -200 to -800 HU in general...

PURPOSE: Recently, single-incision thoracoscopic surgery (SITS) has been recognized as a favorable treatment choice for primary spontaneous pneumothorax (PSP) compared with conventional three-port video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS). However, conventional SITS bullectomy often results in collisions with surgical devices. Therefore, we devised a method of SITS using a chest wall pulley for lung excision (PulLE) and modified PulLE (mPulLE) system, which substitutes threads to eliminate such collisions...

Double-sleeve lobectomy, which includes bronchoplasty and pulmonary arterial angioplasty, is required for certain cases of central-type lung cancer. It is usually done by open surgery or video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS). In recently, da Vinci system and robotic surgery have been applied in such complicated cases. Here we describe the details associated with robotic-assisted double-sleeve lobectomy.

OBJECTIVE: Although video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) lobectomy has become a standard approach for early-stage 1 lung cancer, concerns exist regarding potential damage to the heart or bypass grafts when VATS is performed after cardiac surgery via median sternotomy. We could find only case reports regarding VATS lobectomy after sternotomy for cardiac surgery. Therefore, we reviewed our series of patients who underwent VATS anatomic resections after sternotomy for cardiac surgery. METHODS: Between 1996 and 2010, there were 87 patients who underwent 88 pulmonary resections after sternotomy for coronary artery bypass grafting (64), valve replacement or repair (12), coronary artery bypass graft and valve replacement (6), and transplant (5)...

BACKGROUND: National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) guidelines recommend video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) anatomical lobectomy as the first choice for the treatment of resectable lung cancer. However, sublobar resection offers significantly better functional preservation compared with lobectomy for stage I lung cancer. At present, the inferiority of sublobar resection to lobectomy is still uncertain. Herein, we compared the prognoses of these two types of surgical treatment for stage I lung adenocarcinoma...

In patients with sickle cell disease (SCD), the polymerization of intraerythrocytic hemoglobin S promotes downstream vaso-occlusive events in the microvasculature. While vaso-occlusion is known to occur in the lung, often in the context of systemic vaso-occlusive crisis and the acute chest syndrome, the pathophysiological mechanisms that incite lung injury are unknown. We used intravital microscopy of the lung in transgenic humanized SCD mice to monitor acute vaso-occlusive events following an acute dose of systemic lipopolysaccharide sufficient to trigger events in SCD but not control mice...

Although it is not a pathologically significant entity, cases of azygos lobe (AL) are interesting due to the difficulty of performing video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) procedures in the affected patients and the presence of a congenital malformation. Currently, videothoracoscopic surgery has advanced to such a level that most thoracic procedures can be performed with video assistance. However, some technical difficulties may arise in cases with anatomical anomalies such as AL. This report presents the case of a patient with an azygos lobe who underwent videothoracoscopic lung resection due to the presence of non-small-cell lung carcinoma in the upper lobe of the right lung...

Intraoperative molecular imaging is a promising new technology with numerous applications in lung cancer surgery. Accurate identification of small nodules and assessment of tumor margins are two challenges in pulmonary resections for cancer, particularly with increasing use of video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS). One potential solution to these problems is intraoperative use of a fluorescent contrast agent to improve detection of cancer cells. This technology requires both a targeted fluorescent dye that will selectively accumulate in cancer cells and a specialized imaging system to detect the cells...
